I was just wondering how many of you guys live in GA and would like to meet? I was thinking of a BBQ & Shoot or something like that. I have no idea where to do it, but any input would be great, especially if one of you had some out of the way property. Respond here or email me s0ulzer0@attbi.com

Sounds good to me. I live in Atlanta. Where in GA do you live? ARH

I was just up at Bernie's this morning, I live right down Killian about 2 minutes away.
Link Posted: 5/11/2002 12:24:56 PM EDT
So, out of the 3 that have responded, any ideas on how to pull this off or where to do it?

I'm all the way in Valdosta, but I end up in the Atlanta area quite often.

Any place out there for this to happen? I'll drive anywhere to do this.

How many others besides me are members at River Bend? We could each take a guest. I don't have property where we could do this, or know of a public range where we could meet. Do y'all want to meet at the Eastman show next week end? Bernie always has a table close to the door, so why not there? ARH
Link Posted: 5/11/2002 1:20:35 PM EDT
Yeah, I'll be going to the Eastman's next weekend. I don't know if Bernie's would want any kind of gathering at their store, I guess I could ask.
Link Posted: 5/11/2002 3:41:39 PM EDT
I'm on the Lilburn side of Norcross, about 5to10 minutes from Bernie's store, and I'll be at Eastman's show next week (looking for AR15 stuff, what else[:D]). Keep me advised of what's happening. Must be something in the air out here in Gwinnett. Lots of AR15 guys around.

I could meet either Sat or Sun. These shows are usually pretty good. The last couple I have been to out there, there was a guy selling NIW 30 round Sanchez mags for $20.00 a pop. ARH
Link Posted: 5/11/2002 5:42:53 PM EDT
ARH, just email me like on Thurs or Friday, I'll give you my Cell#, Sat or Sun is fine with me. By Thurs maybe we will have a bunch of us and decide which day.....

I just moved back to the Atlanta area from Tybee Island. Live in Winder, which is up I85 above Suwanee, near Road Atlanta. Where is the Eastman show this coming weekend? My Eastman card apparently hasn't caught up with the mail being forwarded and all that. What day and time is everyone going to be there? Isn't Riverbend up near Gainesville or Cumming? For those in Gwinnett and Barrow and that general area, there is a range just the other side of Athens with a 600 yd lane. It's where ArmaLite held their shoot last year. I can't remember the name of it. I don't think they would be as strict on rapid fire, etc as Riverbend, but I don't know. They were pretty laid back when we up there for the ArmaLite thing. Anyone know of a DNR range in the area? No charge and no range officer. I had taken to shooting at one in Richmond Hill, Bryan County, near Savannah because, believe it or not, there is not one single rifle range in Chatham County, which shocked the hell out of me with it being south Georgia.
Link Posted: 5/11/2002 7:48:04 PM EDT
LARRYG it will be at the North Atlanta Trade Center. Since you will be taking I85 South, go to exit 101 and take a left. Turn right on Oakbrook Parkway and then take a right on Jurgens Court. We still have not set a day and time yet. Hope you make it. ARH

Larry, The best public range that I know of is the Charlie Elliot range run by the DNR. It has a cement floored, covered shooting area with shooting benches. They have several 50 yard ranges (like 8 or so) and several 100 yard ranges. They used to have target stands to hang paper targets but I have not been out there in a long time - maybe they are still there. It is (or it was the last time I went) a very nice place to shoot. Here are directions from Atlanta (stolen from the Georgia Tech Marksmanship Club website at http://cyberbuzz.gatech.edu/firearms/Places.html). The exit number may or may not be right, not sure if the directions are pre or post exit renumbering. Take I-20 East to exit 98, Hwy. 11 (Mansfield, Social Circle, Monticello) and take a right. Exaclty 10 miles from turning onto Hwy 11 there is a small road to the left and a sign for the Charlie Elliot Wildlife Management area on the right. Take the left onto the road and the range is on the left about 1.5 miles.

If it falls on my weekend off I'm in. Usually I go to John's Mountain WMA range about 45 minutes north of Atlanta up I-75 near Calhoun. I have gon to a few indoor ranges such as Hotshots, ED's, and Master Gunman. I used to spend a lot of time at Bernies when I had more time off. Bernie, Maria, and Jeff are good people.
Link Posted: 5/12/2002 10:57:17 AM EDT
This is sounding great! Maybe at the Eastman's all of us can figure out the how/when/where to do a BBQ & Shoot. ARH, don't forget to email me Thurs to get my cell#. So, which day (Sat/Sun) is best for everybody?
Link Posted: 5/12/2002 12:20:37 PM EDT
It's got to be Saturday for me. Sunday is Sunday School "graduation" for my 5 yr old, and Daddy can't miss that [:D]. Hope we can do it then.
Link Posted: 5/12/2002 12:26:29 PM EDT
Wish I could make it out there, but classes have me bound during the week and there are some guys trying to convince me to buy a handgun on the weekends (free range time, why not?).
Link Posted: 5/12/2002 12:39:51 PM EDT
Hey guys, I'm originally from Gwinnett, more toward Winder (Dacula). I come down that way every now and then. If you guys set something up let me know. ACFTGRUNT

Do we have a time set yet? I'm for late morning,but can be flexible if that doesn't work for a lot of others. By the way, don't know about any one else, but I'm bringing some stuff that I want to sell to start working on getting an M4gery barrel assy. Mostly some odds and ends AR stuff and a handgun that's kind of surplus to my needs. Have a complete A2 butt assembly; stock, tube, buffer, etc. unused, taken off a Bushie. If anyone's interested, let me know. I'd rather sell it to "one of the gang" than to a total stranger. Looking forward to Saturday[:D]
