I am still ironing things out, but this will likely be in Marion, AL, near the school.

If I can get my hands on another barrel in time, I could possibly offer mine. Bookhound is sending me some taper pins for my current barrel, but I doubt you will want a 16" ban-friendly bull barrel in the mix. (no sling swivel, FH, or bayo lug)

Let me know the date. Sounds like fun. I have an FAL and I can cover some AR's. Are they supplying ammo and cleaning?

my understanding is they will have their own ammo. at least for the ars. i am thinking cleaning would be more GOOD training. then again i am a bit picky about how my ar's get cleaned and some folks may not want that done.



Cleaning is part of training. If the date does not match with me who's going to take charge of the weapons?

Do the AR's need to be of A2 configuartion? I have about 4 or 5 we could use and 2 SP1's. And if my para get's here in time I will have a para fal and a carbine fal.

UPDATE: I am still trying to iron out dates with Col. Ruiz regarding this, he wanted to make something happen soon so that these boys could get this in before training. I tried to get them up here on the 21st, but they could not as this is the weekend before finals. I have suggested the 28th or 29th, and am awaiting response from Col. Ruiz. I really appreciate y'all being willing to help out on this, very cool. If, due to the accelllerated timeframe of this, we are unable to make a date prior to graduation happen, that would suck, but would not at all negate a future relationship with the school in this regard. They were *very* receptive this, and I will see to it that it happens, be it in a few weeks or next academic year. I will keep ya'll posted, and expect finality from Col. Ruiz soon. Thanks guys!

I would be honored to lend mine. A few months ago I dumped a large portion of my collection and a ton of training ammo that might have helped.
(AK-47/74,SKS'sG3 clones) Sucks this came a little late for this project.

I am/was due to leave on assignment on 5/8, I got called this AM and stood down.

When you come up with a firm time and date let me know and if I and my gun are still in Bama ,I would like to try to make it available to you.

UPDATE: Guys, here is the last correspondence I received from Col.Ruiz, looks like a date will be firmed up quite soon! Huzzah!!! Now, the letter:



First, we are looking hard at coming 21 May. You already have the shoot laid on and I know we need to bring ammo. How do we buy ammo, or would it be easier to bring the $$ to pay for what we shoot?
The next date we are looking at is the 29th. It is after exams, we have cadets that will be here preparing for camp and the rifle marksmanship will really help. I’m also trying to get the SF organization to do a FTX after school. That helps the cadets going to camp. It would be great to integrate rifle marksmanship into the FTX!
I’m trying to get some feedback from them on what will work best. Students can’t predict their priorities because of the constant changes they may have in personal situations. What will happen is 20 say they will go and 5 show up. I’m going to have a hard figure before I commit you guys to your time. They really want to do this.

If they can do it on the 21st I can lend my AR and M44 Mosin Nagant.

Update: It's a "hard go" for the 21st. Col. Ruiz will be letting me know a final number before then, but that is when this particular thing will go down. Huzzah! Thanks to all who will be assisting in making your rifles available, y'all ROCK! More to come, but the 21st is ON!!!

no wonder your flunking. you can't read

the cadets are coming to the shoot



Good lord! But no one has said yet if that is the time that they are arriving! I'm just historically late, and since me and my rifle are RSVP'd, I wanted to make sure.

Do we need to bring empty mags?
Link Posted: 5/20/2005 6:36:48 PM EDT
I'd say, only enough to feed your gun, if your gun is being offered. There will not be very many there, finals week has culled the herd. But those who are coming are the water buffaloes, the weird, the doomed, the ones who *want* to do be there. It'll be a good day. We're jolly green giants, walkin' the earth, with guns.
Link Posted: 5/20/2005 7:01:37 PM EDT

I'm still not sure my rifle was ever considered

p.s. I drove by your place yesterday on my way to some friends, Camp, but no one appeared to be home...
