Dang.
My wife's quilting buddies are coming into town from GA, and I'm taking care of the kids.

Yes, that's right, quilters are preventing me from going shooting this weekend. Quilters are a devious and unpredictable lot.

That said, I need to re-test my Marlin 60 Jam-O-Matic, try out the newly adjusted sights on one pistol, and test-fire a PC-9. Maybe I can catch the next one.

i would like to, but no funds

If you change your mind and make it the Jeff Co range, I might can make it.

I'll call and make sure that they are going to be open. Their calendar on the website looks clear, so maybe so.

I suppose, as long as it's not FA. I can ask. They have been VERY lax whenever I have gone up there. Matter of fact last time they let me shoot one of their full-auto Glocks with some Jeff Co M.E.s

I need some practice, but I have already made other plans.

Gotta go pick up mama for two week visit. Maybe in a month or so. Getting some new f/a toys to play with.

they don't allow civie class 3? mine is semi, but if that's the case i won't support that range.

fine for them but not for us is something i won't support.



Dude, they're LEOs, what do you expect?
Link Posted: 8/23/2005 12:48:32 PM EDT
Agree on none support. If I can't fire my Class 3's, no go. They are sworn to support the Constitution, including the 2nd, and the Sheriff signs off as do all or most police chiefs. They can just keep their range. Support FOP only.

I will email them for clarification
Link Posted: 8/23/2005 1:36:19 PM EDT
Where's the FOP and how much is it ?

The only problem is the 3-month-old. Her trigger control isn't good, and she's prone to AD's in her diaper.

foprangeinc web site will answer all questions. In Pleasant Grove. I pay about $10 per month
Link Posted: 8/23/2005 5:59:41 PM EDT
I can probably go.

I just got all my toys cleaned from the last time we went. Sheesh!

Lemme know what the plan is. I am 99.9% sure I am off on Saturday and could sure use a little stress relief. Been getting my ass worked off.

beetlt, PLEASE do get that clarification. if they won't support us then i have no support for them. hopefully this is just a misunderstanding. Sherriff hale is VERY class3 friendly and really good guy.

if that is their policy perhas some letter writing is in order.



Their email keeps getting kicked back to me. I'll try to call later today.

Just spoke with them, he said that currently since they are short-staffed they discourage class III, but they are having interviews as we speak so hopefully that will change soon. I'm telling you, these are real top-notch guys and very over-the-top accomodating. I don't want you all to get the wrong impression. You have got to atleast understand the huge liabilities there and the service that they are providing the public (for free).

under law any range supported by taxpayer money is suppossed to allow civillian access. they are just following the law.

I didn't realize that.

I should be there. Maybe someone could help me out when I get there, so I'll know who is who. I could yell out "Get both!" so you'll know I'm from the site.

I am a big dude (6'2" 260 lbs) blonde hair glasses. will be on back rifle range around 10:30 or a few minutes before. TBS is also big dude, glasses, brown hair. There usually aren't a bunch of guys with heavy firepower so we should be easily spotted, especially is TBS brings his 1919.

well, since Gomer is going I might try to make it out there. Depends on how quick some projects get done Fri night
Link Posted: 8/25/2005 7:09:29 PM EDT
I'll get there between 1000 and 1030 and I'll just look for whoever has brought the most toys. Looking forward to meeting you all.

Mike, I'm probably going to make it, but have to be back around or before noon (otherwise I would suggest that we ride together). There was something that I was going to ask you but now I have forgotten. Crap.

Oh yeah - so what are these new toys that you speak of?
Link Posted: 8/26/2005 4:44:57 PM EDT
Will be there around 10:00 or a little before. I am only bringing a few toys.
