No worries, We'll shoot together sooner or later, Probably at the next 3 gun match.

Dang! I have to work that morning. Sounds fun... Wish I could be there. I hope there will be more in the future. It would be interesting to meet others from the forum.

I can't wait!

I do the squadding so I'll make sure we're in the same squad...that's if you don't mind?

I'm also not going to be able to make it. I couldn't get someone to cover my shifts in Wendover this weekend. I'll be at the next one though.

How far of a drive is it to this location? Will it be a good alternative to driving all the way to Wendover?

Is your brother still coming? He's invited even if you can't make it.

This place should be about an hour closer than Wendover.
Link Posted: 9/22/2004 5:09:04 AM EST
I'll give him the details. Hope this site works out better than Wendover. Maybe we can draw a bigger crowd if it's closer to the city.

I might be able to make it earlier. My brother's in town and his flight leaves Saturday morning. I thought it left at noon, but it actually leaves at 11am, so I will see him off and try to head out there. I spoke to Ian and I know where the place is, so hopefully I can join you guys before all the fun is gone!

Oh yeah, and I'll be bringing my new toy - a full auto revolver I got from the ice cream man!

Hey Everyone,

I just talked to Ian and we just realized that I have only 6 target stands, we are going to bring a few other things as well, but it would be good if everyone would try to bring a few things to shoot at as well.

We are not sure how many will be attending but we hope for a nice turn out so Target time could be at a premium, I will also be bringing my Trap thrower to hook up to my Truck for those that want to shoot shotgun.

Look Forward to Seeing everyone at 8:30 saturday.
Link Posted: 9/23/2004 9:02:24 AM EST
Arrgghh..gonna miss another one damn it.

I have an extra target stand if ya'll need one. I am in Fruit Heights (Davis county) if anyone needs to borrow it.

It is very compact but sturdy.

LMK

AJM, if you can make it as far as W. Jordan to TGE I have an extra seat for the ride out.....that is provided you are not ...
A) A Jehova's Witness....
B) A newly returned missonary looking to add a notch in your BOM....
C) A crossroads of the west gunshow groupie with a complete cowboy shooting getup..
D) A closet liberal with an autographed picture of micheal mooron hanging over your bed..
E) A relative of Ian's..
F) Dressed head to toe in camo, including but not limited to undergarments and have a propensity to blame all the worlds ills on the"gubmint"..

Ian will call you later but I have not found any 5.56 but thier is tons of just .223 available, not sure if you want to go with that or not call you soon.

That sucks. Ian seems a hell of a lot better at organizing these things than me, so hopefully it won't be too long before the next one.

You don't need one when you got 40 other "real shooters" that have your back...anyway that's not what we're all about.

I hope your shoot went well...I am looking forward to attending your next get-together.

Did ya guys take any pictures of the shoot?

Alot better than I thought I did after the first day...I won my div and was in the top 2 overall. We had 80 competitors and a staff of 30 that did an excellent job...I'll post pics soon.

Wasn't the weather great this weekend?!!

And Ian...if you want to sharpen your ability a little I or my compatriots would be more than happy to help out...we all are certified Firearms and Tactics instructors and graduates of the several professional courses...IM me we're gonna practice (pistol) on Thurs eve and your more than welcome to join us.

Do you think I'd be able to become a "pure shooter" if I practiced with you?

Sure...you can even bring your camera to capture "the moment of clarity."

Since this thread has lost all direction anyway, I thought I'd post an observation. The place where we went shooting a couple weeks ago was out in the west desert right off the road that goes to Dugway from I-80. Someone (Ian?) wondered if it was the same place that Vector tests out some of their guns.

I went up to Vector yesterday and they had some pictures on the wall of a bunch of guns (and a bullet-ridden, burning white van for a target), and based on the background, I'm pretty sure they were taken at our shooting spot.

Not critical information that's true, but like I said, this thread has become directionless anyway and I need to get my post count up.
Link Posted: 10/7/2004 10:08:10 AM EST
Oh so that's where you guys went huh?

I've been out there before. Inbetween Grantsville and Delle right, right up against the hill in sort of a dugout type area?
Link Posted: 10/7/2004 10:16:47 AM EST
Yep, that's it.
