I think there are a bunch of us with Garands, Enfields, 03A3s, etc, that don’t shoot them much. I have an M1 carbine that I have not shot in 10 years.. I would love to get together and have a historical shoot. Bring out your Mausers and 1911’s but leave the AR’s, Glocks and AK’s at home.

Maybe meet up at Emu’s range this summer ? (Provided we clear it with him and follow all of his guidelines)

Any interest?

Bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang ping

Sounds fun!

Sounds cool! I don't have anything I can contribute though.

I'll bring the 1919 if I can make it

This would trigger my extreme jealousy of folks who own these awesome guns.

I already own an 1873 Springfield trapdoor carbine (cut down) and a Colt LE6920 (restricted rollmark ) so I just need a Krag-Jorgenson, a 1903 Springfield, an M1 Garand, an M1 Carbine and an M1A to complete my dream collection.

 I have a super sweet STI Elektra .45acp 1911 but it would stick out like a turd in a punchbowl around WWI & II guns lol.

So please do this so I can watch!!!

I'm good with it being at the Angry Emu whenever y'all choose to get together. Sounds like a cool shoot!

If I can make it I'll bring extras to share.

Sounds like fun to me, I would make the drive out to the Emu range for that.

I may drag out my 1919 (semi). It’s a 308 IZZY kit..I had some reliability issues with it, so any tinkering advice would be welcome

Any dates or weekends in mind? I does get hot as balls in the summer, but that’s why there are canopies😊.

I have a
CMP Garand
O3A3
Victory 38
M1carbine
Enfield
I am hoping to have my CMP 1911A1 within a couple of months, when my number comes up

I'm definitely in for a shoot like this. I've got a few surplus guns that I don't shoot often enough.
Link Posted: 5/29/2021 1:03:06 PM EDT
Early Fall would be great...
I have a Sten that might be approved by then...

Maybe mid/late September ?
Link Posted: 5/29/2021 2:21:53 PM EDT
Hopefully ammo will be a little more available by then too.

I have not shot my carbine aka the flamethrower in a while. Sounds like fun.

Looks Like Knob Creek is the weekend of the 9th and 10th.

What about the weekend of  10/23-10/24?

Works for me

My only historical age gun predates WWI by a fair bit.

2 Garands and 1 carbine. I just retired so I'm in!

I'm still good with it being at the Angry Emu if y'all are so inclined. I had hoped to put together a Fall Shoot this year. Bearing in mind the fall MOA Shoot at GaHunter's place, I'm open to whatever schedule works best for the HTF. We need to try not to have more than one event per weekend. Fall is such a GREAT time to shoot and be outdoors here in GA, the weekends get filled up pretty fast! If y'all would prefer the Fall Shoot become more of a Winter Shoot, no problem. Last year we had the big night shoot event deep in the winter, and I'd love to do that again. I'm thinking this might be a good time to start penciling in some future event dates of all sorts. Is it possible to have a GA HTF calander that we could start listing all upcoming events in the state? I've done a shoot that ended up competing with that big machine gun shoot that I've never been to. We lost! No surprise there!

It's just a slightly alcohol induced thought that solidified as I typed this. Is it possible to have some sort of calander that we could update, or have updated, with firearms related events in the state, or even national stuff, like the Shot Show? I think I'd use something like that, just to know what might be going on, as well as when and where; all in one easy to find spot. (But would likely be a HUGE chore to manage! ) Anyway, just a thought.....

Edit to add: it would be great to see all the dates for the various Cola Warrior events, gun shows, Appleseed shoots, Run-n-Gun shoots, etc., etc., on one easy to find calander. Ok, ok, now I'm rambling....

Exactly what I had in mind. A pinned thread where people post event dates, then our "lazy mod" can stick them on some sort of calander in the first post.

Tagging. 1903, 03A3, 1917, Garand, some WWI era 32s... maybe my CMP 1911 will hit by then (doutful).

It's a semi-auto reproduction of the BAR.

It is one heavy, awkward gun.
