I sent out a group email to those of you I have on the list for GSH this Sunday. I haven't heard from any of you yet, so who is going?

If you are not on the list, shoot me an email and I'll put you on it. You most likely won't be able to make it this time as the slots will fill, but I'll be sure to add you for next time.

Does GSH have shooting benches? I noticed in the pics from the last shoot that everybody was shooting prone. Do [do do due ] to a seriously FU'ed neck I can't shoot prone and need a bench. Plus the rifle I am bringing weighs over 23 lbs

edit for fu'ed spelling

There are 3 or 4 wooden benches, if I recall correctly.

There are benches, but everyone needs to shoot from the bench since the prone positions are in front of the bench. don't let that stop you from going. I'd guess folks would certainly accomodate your needs.

bill- I'm not gonna make it, but hopefully soon I'll have something else to send rounds down range there.

How long does it take to get there from Buford?

Anybody in the Buford area want to 'van pool'? I have a long WB van I am taking.

What size targets do I need for 600 or 700 yds?

Do they require ear muffs

rjay, it takes me about an hour from Hoschton. It will probably take 1.5 hours from Buford.

If you want to shoot paper, there are old election signs that you can staple or stick targets to. Otherwise there are huge steel plates downrange.

Normally there is no hearing protection required, but since I am going and seem to be the only person in GA without a can, it might be a good idea.

Guys,
I am bombing out for tomorrow. I am feeling poorly. Hopefully next time I will be able to make it.

Thanks

put in lexington ga in mapquest and you will get a basic map. Basically go 316 to the 78 bypass around athens to 78 east to lexington and follow the directions on the site above.

Next time maybe we can hook up and share a ride and gas. I am available during the week also.
