Yesterday afternoon, I decided to go and see Black Hawk Down (again), and I went with another AR15.com member (KnockItOff), who was seeing the movie for the first time. She really liked it – of course [:D] She had already borrowed the book from me and read it, so she knew all about it. As the credits were rolling and the lights came on, I look over and happen to notice that another AR15.com member (Bill), and IDPA shooter, was sitting one row away from us. I strolled over and we exchanged greetings, talked a little about the movie, ect. It’s just kinda cool to run into other “Brothers In Arms” out in public. This kind of stuff happen to anyone else?

You guys wear name tags or something? I wouldn't know another AR15.com member without them wearing at least a T shirt. I've dropped the name at the range seeing if anyone else was a poster, but so far just Waverunner and Shrem, through arrangements through this board. EPDMedic is next.

I saw BHD with the lovely Mrs. Jarhead, lordtrader, mojo and colinjay. Here in Texas we have fairly regular meetings of the faithful.

Its always great to meet board members. I've had the pleasure of meeting most of the SoCal and NoTX crew. BHD was a pretty good mtg, we added colinjay to the mix

How far 'south' in South Florida. I'm in Tampa.

The only time I meet AR15.com members is down at Ottawa. I shoot at Bristol every now and then, but still have yet to meet C-Rock. I think he's just a myth. Av.

Haven't met any one from here yet, although I have been seeing the guys from VA post on here...even wore my Molon Labe hat at the gunshows here in Richmond and no one said a thing..maybe I need one of those AR-15.com T-shirts.

Maybe next time I'll catch you. I was only there for an hour or so last time. I bet I've interacted with a few members but they didn't know it. I don't think any of you would ever pick me out.

I actually came to find out that Spearweasel works in my building! Probably not more than 50 yards from me. I yap with him a lot on AIM. Haven't met any other local members, but I think it would be fun. If we had a local shoot, I'd definitely try to go. If any of the NoTex/Dallas area members get something together again, I may try to go. Unfortunately, I will miss the BRC this year, but will definitely try to be in attendance next year! M@

I wore a AR15.com (made by Jessica)T shirt at the Shot Show and hoped to bump into you guys there. I recognized the pics of the Cav arms crew and the Bimbets' but that's it.

Never met another member. Starting to think I am the only one south of 70 in IL. In all fairness though, my schedule doesnt allow me to get away much.
Link Posted: 2/5/2002 5:02:22 PM EDT
Have met AFARR and c-rock at Gun World in Bensenville.

I guess you guys are saying that members here really do exist in the real world and this is not just a figment of one's imagination. Well I'll be darn. Ain't tha sumthin. [smoke]

Everytime I am at the kettlecorn stand, I gaze out at the crowd desperately seeking Imbroglio.

I wouldn't mind meeting or going to the range with any of the female board members from Florida. And if you also happen to be a stripper, I won't hold that against you. Just don't tell my wife.
