I've managed to get get the Jewish family and two downed aviators whisked out of town but last night someone passed me off another flyboy to get out of the area.

It's getting too hot here for his safety. I do NOT know what to do so I'm just going to drop him off at the club and count on you guys to get him out of town.

I'm sure you'll recognize him.

@Rdot

Thanks! And that's good to know. I used to shoot at a place near Coraopolis but it started getting too fudd for me as well. Now I go to a range near West Alexander I'm happy with

Does he have one of those European style big piles of hay/straw in his backyard to hide the downed flyboys in?

I found what my old Vietnam era night vision gear is, that my Dad brought back.
It is an AN/PAS-6 metascope.   It was used for signaling with an IR lamp in morse.   But the imager does OK for something gen I
Found out the battery it takes, too.  Not a common one, but may be able to find something.
I’ll post a photo of it later.

Still not sure what the heck my gen II scope is.  I’ve got an elcan mount that it’s supposed to go with somewhere.  But I think I need to get a small helicoil so the thread from the mount will hold the scope. If I can find that, hopefully next time will shoot some targets down range.

But really I need to get a PVS-14 and stop procrastinating on that.

And it’s good to finally meet a few people from here.

Yes, good to meet some more local arfcommers this evening. @Jk_pyre hope all is well.

Piccolo’s scarf was amazing.

And I’m not sure what was going on with my rds but happy with the results.

Great event, thanks for the invite. Nice to meet some local ARFCOMers in person (laxman09, Hill_monkey, JQ66, and piccolo) and see some gear. That meet up will end up costing me money, not counting what I spent there.

If it was an old aviator it was me in my alter ego as Crash Murphy. I asked someone along the way.

My damned GPS said I had arrived and I was at someone's driveway. It looked like it was probably some kind of a goat path so I pulled in only to find out it actually WAS some poor bastard's driveway.

I backed out and proceeded up the road and pulled over and asked a couple that told me to keep going because it was up ahead.

Once again, happy to have met everyone that came out.  If you are interested in buying some NODs, dont wait as things are pretty backed up with the big time vendors.

Not sure what the 'political climate' will be by next months shoot, but Im happy to come out again for those that didnt get to attend this months meet up or anyone that wants to come back. I enjoy meeting new people and its a nice spending a few hours with like minded individuals.

March is the last month for the night shoot until November. My hope is to come up with something monthly for area members. Might not be a shoot (lets face it, ammo is $$$$ and impossible to fund) but thinking about doing a hike or something. Im open to any ideas that you guys have.

Hikes would be good for the spring and summer.  There are lots of game lands and some state forests with plenty trails in SW Pa

Yinz wanna come out at night again? Next shoot is Feb 6. Same place.

Maybe you want to just hang out in you fly bird gear. Come out. Or flex your filmless pvs14. Keep flexin. Or you want to shoot guns (they are scary). Do it.

Anyone else coming out for this, only two more chances left.

So much gear to checkout or a chance to test out the gear you got.

Also, a good chance to network with like minded folks, which is important nowadays.
