I'm thinkin about getting on a central Texas shoot sometime probably next month or in August. I'm compiling some email addresses of the local guys, but anyone else who might be able to come, email me, so I can get a list together. Thinking about doing it on a Saturday, of course. Location is looking like it will be Tony's Guns and Range, northwest of Austin off of 183. Directions/map will be posted to the website soon! They will allow us to cook out, we can bring appliances to destroy (as long as we remove the remains!) and they DO allow CLASS III!! Sounds like a winner to me! Suggestions are welcome... I'm just trying to get the ball rolling... So far, about 35 people are interested. The date will likely be either July 27th or August 3rd. It will be up for a vote, but so far, several people have expressed interest in the August date. Check the website: [url]home.austin.rr.com/mqj/CTSS.htm[/url]

That you could probably do at Tony's range, north of Austin. They even sell Tannerite! I'm interested, too.

Legs, I'm not sure, but I will contact the range owner and see. I'll also see if we can use some 'reactive' targets. From what I remember, the guy out there doesn't like them too much, so we may be limited to some cans/bottles. We'll see. Maddog50, I'm not familiar with that range, send me some info... it might be a better place! Also, email me if you wish to be on the mailing list! :)

M1QJ, I wish you all the luck in the world for this endevor. Trying to get the Austin tribe together for a shoot is like herding cats! I've tried twice and both times I shot alone. The only board member who I have had the pleasure of shooting with at a local range is Maddog50. But if I am still alive when this thing gets scheduled, you can bet I will be there! Put me on your list. You are right, "Crazy Richard" at HCRR can at times be a bit rough and gets his tin foil hat too tight. When he starts in with his "The world is going to end next Tuesday" talk, I just smile at him and say "Yup, yer right about that. I need to get back to shoot'n.", and then he leaves me alone. Richard is very intelligent, but still a few bricks shy of a full load in the reality department. Maddog, thanks for letting my co-worker and I shoot your Serbu 50! Also, how long are the ranges at Tony's? ilikelegs, I don't think propane tanks, tin cans, or tannerite, will go over very well with Richard. Full auto is allowed, but the only place I have seen it done out there is on the 50 yd range that sits between the 425 yd covered rifle range and the 25 yd pistol/.22 silhouette range. There are no target stands on that 50 yd range, but I have seen some shooters bring their own stands for that range.

Link Posted: 7/1/2002 11:21:40 AM EDT
I'm interested too. I was just telling myself that it has been too long since I could make one of the shoots. Of course, it depends on the date selected, not that I have a preference now. I visited Tony's place a few years ago. Unless it has changed it is a small range, perhaps 25yds. DanM ( dandetour@yahoo.com )

I hear you. At least that one time, it was the three of us. I've shot IDPA a couple of times and I've been wanting to try IPSC. This would give me the perfect excuse, if we did this after a match at Hill Country. (Just wanted to throw that out there.)

No problem. I used to teach CHL classes at Tony's. It is about 10 miles north of the 183/29 interesection in Seward Junction. (It's also very close to my house.) They have 25, 100, and 150 yard ranges there as well as a clay target thrower. Right now the 25 is under construction, so they are using the 100 as a pistol range. They sell guns and ammo there. The guy who runs the gun shop, Jason, is working on getting machine gun rentals out there, but this probably won't happen by August. But they are class III, .50 BMG, and exploding target friendly. I'm not sure about appliances, but I know that they don't have any there. The appliances would be out of the ordinary. They frown on ground-level targets because they want the bullets to hit the burm. Their number is 254-793-3906 for Tony, range owner and 254-793-8122 for Jason, gun store owner. You can find the place by travelling 10 miles north of 29 on 183, they are on the right hand sign, across from the "Lobo Village" billboard. You will see a radio tower on the right as you approach. You will pass 970 for Andice, but if you pass 138 you have gone too far. I may be able to dig up one or two more people to attend.

I checked with Tony, and he said that setting up a grill is no problem. Also, shooting appliances is OK as long as you haul it off when you're done. They still sell the tannerite exploding targets. Jason recommends that you shoot these from a minimum distance of 50 yards. This is also one of the few places where you can present from the holster without the range staff having a cow. Note that they also have handgun rentals out there.

Maddog, sweet! I think that range might be the winner. Have any idea if they allow class 3? Someone emailed me asking. Would be nice, I'd like to try a couple magazines of full auto! Doublefeed, I got some email addresses from some posts... I have 19 on the list now! Keep 'em coming!

Yes, Class III is allowed there. You know, we could save a ton of money if we went in on a case of tannerite exploding targets: [url]http://www.tannerite.com/she_exploding_targets.html[/url]

Looks like you guys do some good stuff. On the carbine matches, your web site mentions that they are loosely based on IDPA rules. Does that mean that the engagement sequence and number of rounds is specified for each stage?
Link Posted: 7/2/2002 6:24:39 PM EDT
I want to shoot in one of the Tactical Carbine matches, but I will probably wait until I can get myself an M1 Carbine... seems like a perfect little gun for the carbine match. My 20"A2 might be a little unweildy being front heavy, but I could manage with it. I do want to shoot in an IDPA match sometime.. I just need a couple mag pouches!
Link Posted: 7/2/2002 6:24:51 PM EDT
I'll probably go too if it's not scheduled for the 2nd Saturday of the month. Would also like to see you guys at the Texas Tactical shoot just west of Johnson City. It's TONS of fun, regardless of your abilities. There are usually a number of unexpected extras too. I love it! Oh yeah, back to the thread. I'm bummed I didn't get to go the the ETH shoot, so I hope to be at a Central TX shoot.

Mojo, my cellphone is still the same and that would be awesome to go out shooting. The battery is a little messed up right now, so it spends as much time on the charger as off. I'll e-mail you my other contact numbers, and Brouhaha should have them as well, but I haven't talked to him one the phone in a while. I've got a thousand rounds of 5.56 that I've got stashed away for a rainy day and 200 rounds in boxes/mags and the wife has been dying to go shoot for a while.
