Unfortunately, I will not. I'm on call the weekend of Gunstock, and unable to weasel out of the duty. (seeing as I traded for that weekend to be able to go home to visit the family at Christmas.) The sacrifices we make for family.

I'll be there in spirit.

Damn you lawyers got a way with words.

Now I feel guilty for even attempting to be a distant observationist.


When and where is this thing again?

I'm not going, I know yall are good folks but I just don't like crowds and like to shoot with only a friend or two. Besides, I'm poor and going back to school so I couldn't afford it anywho.
Link Posted: 10/7/2004 12:24:20 PM EST
It's still up in the air if I'm going or not. Too much going on right now and I have soccer coaching obligations that saturday so I wouldn't even be able to catch a ride with someone.

Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

I just registered and got my room for Saturday night. I'll be there. Now I'm still not sure if any of the rest of the Houston Crew will be ridding with me or not yet.

I'm planning on Sunday myself. I'll know for sure after this weekend. If I'm going, you can hitch a ride with me if you want.

I was thinking of going to Tom Bean that weekend.
Link Posted: 10/7/2004 1:56:58 PM EST
Can't make it this year, too many high profile trials during that time period, my team needs me there. Hopefuly next year, probably end up at the Tom Bean range that sunday.

Got a 3 gun match at TACPRO on Sat; however, will try to make the Sunday events.

Going to run off with my wife on a "no kids/no worries" three day weekend that was planned and booked long before the Gunstock date was set. Sometimes things get in the way of a weekend with the boys......if you know what I mean.

Uh, you need to talk to your LASIK provider: it's not supposed to be done orally, m'kay.

I found out last week that we are replacing a fire damaged fiber optic cable in downtown Baltimore next Friday night and Saturday. I have to be there. I tried every excuse, every trick, and can't weasel out of it. Mt boss had to cancel his vacation too, so he didn't want to hear any whining.
I already had my flight booked, room reserved. My GF will be using the airplane tickets instead (she was going to come with me) and she is taking her sister instead to visit friends and family in Waco and Austin.

This will be the first Arfcom national event I've missed, and I'm pretty pissed off about it.

You guys try to have a little fun without me. You can bet I'll be there next year, no matter where it is held (although Waco was pretty damn nice).

You are excused. Please take care of yourself over there buddy.

You should save that for another weekend. Much more to do at Gunstock.



That's ok-- I'll probably go to Tom Bean or Garland Public Shooting Range that weekend if I decide to do some shooting. Its much closer and safer.

Sorry. With Football being on, my BAC will be too high to operate toys of ANY kind! Actually the wife had reservations to be out of town before I could. Stuck here with my dogs.

ETH: sorry i will not make it this year. as you will remember, i wore BIGHAT last year, and was accompanied by TxRedneck and my younger brother. thank you for your (more than kind)contribution to my weapons, ammo, and gun smoke filled bachelor party last year.

For those of you working on it this year, last year G.S. was my bachelor party, as well as a send off of sorts from my bro and my buddy.

For those concerned with safety issues, GS is one of the safest events i've ever been to. there will be NO say NO loaded firearms off the range, and they will check for this.

for those concerned about something to do, there is more than you can handel at GS. you'll be tired at the end of everyday.
if youre concerned about the party life, there's still more to do at the end of every day, but it wont involve firearms.

GS is worth every penny and more. if i was in the area, i'd be there. so get off your asses!

I take it you did not hear about what happened last year? CavArms even posted pics of their "bullet proof" stock which was damaged in the incident...

Good news, looks like some of the Houston Crew will be joining me after all. There should be 4-5 of us out there with y'all.
Link Posted: 10/9/2004 12:00:21 PM EST
Will there be any vendors there selling bulk ammo? I'm looking for a case, maybe two, of 5.56 and .308 Port.

Also a little confused about the events - is this a shooting competition, a fun blast, or both? Will try to make it at least one of the days.

Thanks

Slumlord. When are you gents going to be there?



The plan as it stands is: Drive up on Saturday morning, we should be there around noon or so. We're staying at La Quinta Inn Waco University Area Saturday night. Depending on whats going on Sunday will dictate when we leave, but the plan is to be back in Houston Sunday night. None of the local guys were going to go, until I booked a room and told them all they had to do was jump in my Suburban and stay with me.

... also a gun show.

The safety issues have been addressed. This year it safety is being handled by Tiger Valley and TJ doesn't fool around about safety.

I'll be there. I'm also going to RO on Sunday.

i figured there would be call for it.......................i have 2 cases of 500 XM193 spare you can pick up from me at gunstock. i had ordered it for SSG. Jongemas Hero Rifle cause but he is still in walter reed and i can replinish it long before he is home to receive his rifle and accessories.

that is it though, my kansas supply is exhausted and without priority shipping i cannot get any in before friday when i leave...............................

i can probably get other brands of .223 and various other calibers out of kansas though if anybody wants any for gunstock. MONDAY EARLY is absolutely the ordering deadline though

I'll be there Saturday am

Due to some very exotic hand/wrist surgery we won't be making it to Waco either this year. We were there last year and had a very good time picking up toys to go with our toys.

My shooting hand is down and there's a lot of thrapy to do to reintroduce my fingers to my muscles. It's rough, slow, tedious work with little progress but that is to be expected for such extensive surgery. My husband keeps teasing me about my having little to no use for all my guns since I'm right handed and that's where the problem was fixed. That's enough to make my daily rehab sessions a must do to get back to normal!!!
