Wooohoo!!!! Met some more AR15.comers today. M1A1 came down to represent the AZ crew. How bout that folks!!!! Was a great day for the shoot not to cold, not too hot. A bit overcast, but all in all a good day. Here are some pics. As usuall, I spent more time gabbing than shooting. Great bunch of folks though. Looking forward to next time.

Yo lt, aren't you going to tell them about how I had to save you from that unstoppable steel plate? You emptied the mag on your Gee Lock at that thing and it just kept coming at you, relentlessly. [:O] I had to put a little USP45 Tactical smackdown on its ass. One 230gr FMJ later, you were safe again. [}:D] Whew! [:D]

They would not let us BBQ cause of cayotes in the area. [:(] Gorgeous range though plenty of room. The 1000yds range would've been great for the beltfed guys you have in SoCal. There was probably 100acres of shooting space we had to ourselves.

Nah, there was only one guy that went up there. There was a few people that were shooting half way at the 500yds mark when I got there.

What a great day indeed! It sure was nice to meet a bunch of the AR15.com crew. Mojo, thanks for the full auto trigger time on your "Li'l Fren". Jarhead_22, You only shot "Baby" 1 time. It couldn't have been that bad, or I wouldn't have been able withstand the measley 8 rounds I ran through her. The "Osama House" was a really good time as well, and the KD range is a very nice set up, in fact I would say the best KD range I have shot on outside of the military. We are going to have to get together for another one of these events so I can remember everyones name! I would also like to thank the rest of the folks who let me shoot their weapons (FAL, Rem 700, Singer 1911). brouhaha, I know what you mean. I drove from Austin, 3.5 hrs (210 miles) each way. But it was worth it! Great people and a first class facility! Hope to see you at the next one! Semper Fi

Brouhaha, if they do it again, I'll probably drive up because it looked like a lot of fun. I'll be more than happy to let you ride shotgun, as long as you don't bitch about my driving (no wrecks and no ticekts) or the music.

I would like to know if anyone even hit the target at 1000 yd. Its alot harder then most think. I have trouble at 800(308cal), But I can atleast hit the target/paper(man size).

I figured as much since you've got the TCU mascot as your avatar. Still, if you want to go and don't want to drive I'd be willing to. Those North Texas guys seem to have too much fun without us. [:D] God Bless Texas

Does the range yall were at have any caliber limitations? Just curious, might be time to break out the really big boy toys. Fer some reason that thousand yard target is just irritating me and im havin the urge to shoot it.

.50 cal is authorized at Tac Pro. Also, thanks to Rat44 for letting me run a magazine through his FAL. I learned a valuable lesson: Don't wear your high-dollar sunglasses as shooting glasses! Shooting glasses are there to keep sharp and/or hard things from going in your eye. It only cost me a bunch of scratches on my Maui Jims to figure that out.

SHHH! Hey, let's have a shoot at a 1000 yd range, and NOT tell Tippie that we are doing it! Won't he be jealous..... No, I know that he does'nt have anything else to do....who cares? No, Don won't tell him, don't worry.

RM. I don't think anyone even shot at the 1000 yd. and Anti its ok you can come next time

You are correct Anti.... I was wondering the same thing, the range rules prohibit ground level targets, but we were allowed to shoot the heck out of bowling pins, rocks, etc. We had to pick up all the brass as well. Interesting policy. However, everyone working together filled a 5 gallon bucket with brass casings in about 10 minutes. BTW, that one bucket was from one range only. The 1000 range, is subdivided into 100,200,300,500 ranges, I think. However, theses ranges are ALL downrange of the richochets (and there were alot of them) from the two 25-50 yard ranges. We picked TacPro because they allow Class 3 an 100 yard shooting. I think only 1 person shot at 1000 yds, and only 1-2 brought class 3's. The search is already starting for DFW AR15.com Winter shoot. Several people, my brother included, have offered to improve the amount of 'training' that occurs at the next shoot. More tactical shooting, a gun/knife retention class, etc. There was alot of informal discussion of techniques and shooting styles, etc. Basic pistol training, carbine use, maintenance, etc. were all discussed informally.

Uncle Georges in Glen Rose is a very cool and C3 friendly range... So what if it only goes out to 100 yards, it does NOT have rock berms!
Link Posted: 11/19/2001 6:30:43 AM EDT
For knocking $10 off the range fee I was more than happy to pick up some brass. I do have to admit that is was great seeing the team work when cleaning the place up. I thought it would take forever but we got it taken care of in no time.

Hey LT... a lot of dig-cam pics come out dark. I typically lighten each one I post a little. You can just load them in any pic-editing software (MS Photo Editor works fine) or any other freebie... possibly came with your camera? Or, you can send them to me, and I can do it if you think you got some good ones?

I don't know that anyone was shooting 1000yds. We set up at 300 and had a great timeknocking the gong. After we got my 308 pss zeroed, we hit the 5in top of the gong about every time. Next time is at least 500 yds for me. Need to get my scope shimmed, It was dialed all the way up at 300 yds. BTW that 416 RIGBY was AWESOME. I hurt like hell after I pulled the trigger, but couldn't stop smiling. I can't believe I pulled the trigger again. (One last note, the bruise is not THAT big). This was my first AR15.COM get together, it definately won't be the last. I had to leave early to catch a flight, but it was a great day. WL
Link Posted: 11/20/2001 3:36:17 PM EDT
Dude, I didn't even make it to the longer range that day. Maybe we need to have two day shoots? I am definitely heading back out there to play with the gongs at 300 and 500.

Ummm...the same road that takes you to the shooting berms goes all the way to the impact berm. But you COULD walk. Keeps those pounds off.
