Big Thanks to everyone from AR15.com and AssaultWeb that made the Mid-Missouri Shoot a big success! Nice turnout...crapy weather and all! I had a real good time and enjoyed putting a face with some names. Can’t wait to do it again….but maybe when it is a little warmer and not raining. Thanks again! Medcop Oh, I will have some pics ready in a couple of days to post. I did not have a dig camera so I will have to go to the shop and have them developed and then scanned. Hehehe…that stereo and tanks did not stand a chance. The pics will tell it all! I believe that "Branson" over on AssaultWeb will have some pics also in a couple of days. If you were at the shoot and would like me to snail mail you a copy of the pics I took (about 72 of them) send me your address and I will get you a copy. I can email a few, but I have a very slow connection. Take care and be safe!

I couldn't believe the turn-out, especially with the weather! I for one made sure to oil my guns up good after getting rained on. Also, a big thanks to those who travelled to get here, glad you made it! I can't tell you how much fun I had today. Despite the hurricane type winds. And man the guns! Tons of AR's, AK's, FAL's, HK's, and even some full auto stuff (thanks to the KC guys). Sure it was cold, but everyone sure had a blast! Nice to meet everyone in person, and can't wait to do it agian. BTW, that radio got what it deserved. Shouldn't have tried sneaking up on us like that.

Yes, Great shoot despite the weather! Lots of great toys and lots of good people. A special thanks to Branson from Assaultweb for organizing, and for Medcop for rallying us AR15.comers. I can't wait for the pics, but until then, here are some of the lessons I picked up on: Shooting trap with a 18.5" bbl Benelli loaded with 00 Buck is a fun, but totally fruitless technique. Empty propane tanks will NOT explode when you shoot at them (to my dismay). Can you really bump fire a MAC10/11 ?!?!? I must buy a 16" bbl FAL and a compact ACOG and finally, Ass web folk aren't all that bad.

Yes it was most definitely a BLAST! Just ask any of the three propane tanks, or the ghetto blaster that was lain to waste! hehe A big thanks goes out to MedCop for helping in setting this up. And for hookin' me up with the ammo, and for lettin me shoot his 'shorty' with all the bells and whistles. And to Seamusmcoi, for lettin me rip off numerous rounds thru the FAL (I NEED one now!) and for showing me why [b] EVERYONE [/b] should own a ACOG! (I DEFINITELY needs one of them!) I had a friggin Hoot even despite the weather. We'll definitely have to do it again when it warms up. Thanks again to everyone that made my 574.6 mile round trip a weekend not soon equaled, much less forgotten.[:D] PS. Thats my fugly (bald-headed) mug on the bottom right.

Damn,Damn,Damn, SHIT!!!!!! I knew I shoulda said "screw it" & came down! The weather spooked me & my wife was none to happy about me "checking out a shoot in Columbia". Looks like you fellows had a capital time. I want pics, g'ddammit!! Still sitting here with 250 rounds, & wanted to learn how to bump my AR .Shit. You had FA there too? DOUBLE SHIT. Dammit, If you do it again, let me know. Maybe anti will bring some of his evilblackdeathmachines too.

Thanks for the time fellas! seamusmcoi; haven't cleaned the FAL yet, don't need to! Heh, heh, heh. haven't cleaned the Legend yet, don't need to! Heh, heh, heh. LOL ;) Did clean the SP1 tho. HKocher; A 16" FAL assures an opening on the firing line!!! Damn thing is about loud ain't it? The 18"'s are quite so bad. I'll try to bring the Izzy HBar next time. Glad you think us "ass web" guys aren't so bad after all!!! ;) Lets do it again!! But warmer/dryer weather please!!!

I just got my pics back....I had them put onto CD as well as prints made. I had them done in both high and low res. Well, the high res. it way to big to post on the net and the low res. is way to crappy. So, if anyone at the shoot wants a copy of the CD just hit me with an email and I will burn you a copy and send it to ya' I plan on just scanning the prints (have to go to a friends..don't have a scanner of my own) and posting some that way If anyone knows anything about changing the size of the pic or making the file smaller let me know...thanks medcop
