Well, I talked to the fellow this morning and he said he is down there every Saturday and anytime would be fine.

Let's get a consensus on a date and I will let him know and get directions, etc.

We will be able to shoot out to about 500 yds.

Oh, this is in Walton County.

That's fine, it is just a matter of all here agreeing on a date.
Link Posted: 7/20/2004 10:04:33 AM EST
I would love to go out there. I just need a good advanced notice.
Link Posted: 7/21/2004 3:46:23 AM EST
I changed the title, since it seems no one is interested. Oh well.

I was just waiting to see when the other guys wanted to go, I am a follower.

Any time before late October or After mid January would be good for me. Sorry Can't interupt deer season.

I'll check on that.

I will bring my full auto unit.
Link Posted: 7/22/2004 1:46:21 AM EST
I'd certainly be interested! 500yds would be a hoot, we'd need a car to check our targets!

I'd be in for anytime, just not in October. I'm going to Germany and Amsterdam then the ol family reunion after that in Enterprise AL.

Tannerite ok?
Link Posted: 7/22/2004 2:19:19 AM EST
Can I get in on this too?
Link Posted: 7/22/2004 7:55:13 AM EST
I would be interested, and can probably make it on a Saturday or Sunday as long as I have a couple of weeks notice.
Link Posted: 7/22/2004 7:59:43 AM EST
Where and when?
Link Posted: 7/22/2004 2:12:24 PM EST
hey give us a good date early and I'll be there ready to shoot, just tell me where we are going to shoot.

[Last Edit: 7/22/2004 4:45:09 PM EST by LARRYG]
Well, everyone agree on a date, say 3 or 4 weeks advance, and I will let him know.

I will check on MGs and tannerite.

It's in Walton County.
Link Posted: 7/23/2004 1:31:57 AM EST
August 28th?

The weekend after that is Labor Day weekend so the week before may be better for some.

After that September 11th would be the next available weekend.

I'm up for either one although I'd prefer Sept. 11th. since it may be cooler then.

I think we should go Sept 11 due to the significance of that date.

Get on US 78 or GA 316 and head west. It borders on Barrow.

From Atlanta,78 EAST will take you into Monroe,which is in Walton Co.

500 yd targets. Sounds good. Come up with a date, and I'll see if I can make it

Link Posted: 7/23/2004 5:54:21 PM EST
I would definately be in for this one!

I spoke with the guy this evening. September 11 is a good date for him and I am going this Saturday to recon the area. I will give more details.

He said no to the MGs and tannerite. I tried to change his mind, but he feels that they would do too much damage to the property.

Before people start bashing the guy, he is a great guy and I think he is being more than generous inviting us to shoot on his property.

sounds good to me. Where is it exactly. Map? what will the hours be? LUNCH?

I will post directions later. I am going out there this weekend.
Hours are up to you guys, he is there all day, sunrise to sunset, building a house.
Lunch, again is up to you guys. I will see what is in the area. Maybe we can picnic or something like that.

Here are some pictures of where we would be shooting. We would be shooting down this road.

In the zoom shots, about halfway up the second rise would be 450 yards, according to my friend. Once we get ready to start shooting, the gate on the other side of that rise will be blocked, so everyone must be there before we start shooting. I checked it all out and a shot that even goes over that far rise will be well above anything and would wind up in the forest beyond.

We need some tables and stuff like that.

We need to set a definite time. We can all meet at the general store right there in Good Hope. The land is about 2 miles from there. I will post detailed directions later, but it is not bad for anyone east of town, a lot better than CE, for location and other things too.

Hell, I'm game. If its too far out of the way to go out to eat, how about a good ole barbecue while we are there. All we would have to do is for everyone to bring two things: one edible and one supply, ie some steak and napkins, or salad and plates, or any combination thereof. Between those of us going, we should be able to scrounge up enough grills, coolers, utensils, steaks, potatos, and fixin's to feed all of us as well as the land owner...just as a token of our appreciation

Sounds like a plan. Okay, who can bring what?
Link Posted: 8/8/2004 7:05:03 PM EST
Well that depends on what all we want to eat. Do we want to go the burgers and hot dogs route with fries or go steaks and potatos? If we can come up with a semi-coherent menu, then it'll be easier to plan. Personally, I vote steak and potatos.

Lets get a roll call for 9/11/04

LarryG, thanks for setting this up. Just so I understand, we'll be shooting down a road on this guy's property (i.e. he owns it) towards the entrance of the property? It also appears there is no backstop. Is this correct?



What he said..............

We will be setting targets up on the second rise about halfway down. That would be our back stop. He said he could create a berm if we wanted it.

Yes, it is his property.

We checked it out and any misses are going to clear anything and will hit the forest in the background. Besides, anyone who would miss that high at that distance needs glasses for sure.

If you want to meet me one day, we can look it over.

Link Posted: 8/9/2004 7:15:22 AM EST
Yeah, I would feel better if there is a big backstop also. Its not so much that I don't trust your judgement about the forest behind, its just that I've been in this situation before and don't really want to repeat it. A big backstop or some sort of berm would be good.

Oh, and I got a portable charcoal grill. It'll only handle around 6 steaks though, so someone else is going to have to bring one.
Link Posted: 8/9/2004 9:01:45 AM EST
I say we hire some homeless street bums to be the backstop.
$5 for every bullet they catch.

It's time we gave back to the community.
