Actually, the little berg Whittakers is in is called West Louisville but it's west of Owensboro and not over near Louisville as it's name would imply.

Just name the time pc!

At a little over three hours I will have to stand down from this one. It aint all that far from WHFRTC and I have to drive there monthly. Nothing personal, but I hate driving out to WKY. Nothing but pain and suffering out there.

I talked to Darrell Whittaker today and told him we wanted to do an ARFCOM shoot. He was really enthused about it! He knows AR15.com.

When do we want to do this? Are weekends best for everybody? Staurdays?

How about 9AM on the 11th of Feb?

Incidently, he told me that e was going to add 500 & 1000 yd target berms this summer!!!!! w00t!!

No weekend is going to be good for everyone so its best to pick a day and go for it. Those who can make it will, those who can't can read about it .

I bought my AR50 at Whittaker's about 6 years ago and he was going to push the range out to 1000 yards then. I wouldn't get too worked up about it until you see the dozer pushing dirt.

Looking forward to meeting a few fellow Arfcommers soon.

It's 250 miles for me. I might be able to head up that way Friday night. I would love to run some rounds through my SEBR.

Not that I'm the only guy going, but 9am wouldn't be possible for me. Not because I'm a lazy ass.....I work early Saturday mornings. Push it up to around Noon and I'll be there! Or, if you think you guys will still be there around noon I'll make the trip.
Darrel does get enthused when he sees $$$$$$.

So it looks like THREE of us are going? Come on fellas, lets get some committment going here. Unless something happens, I'm planning on being there mid morning and will bring about 10 toys. AR-50, F/A MAC-10, couple of AR15's, AR10, AR180, and a few other things that fall out of the safe. Hope to see a good turn out.

AR-50 huh? Sounds like a "blast"! I guess I'll have to bring my little toy too. I've only got a handfull of ammo left though.

Link Posted: 1/23/2006 6:06:45 PM EDT
I might have to make this. I am only there a couple times a month anyway. I am from the "other (evil) side" of the board so I might have to bring a couple evil commy guns just to keep it honest fun. Well see...
Link Posted: 1/27/2006 7:56:58 PM EDT
Tag, not sure if I can make it or not.
Link Posted: 1/28/2006 2:54:15 AM EDT
I have made it to his some many times, but not the Range....

Great store.

www.whittakerguns.com for more info on his store.....

Well there wasn't a shoot planned at Knob Creek today, but counted over 12 guys with AR's there. Finally figured out what was goofing mine up. A little windy today, but a day shooting beats a day mowing the lawn....
Link Posted: 2/6/2006 6:47:49 PM EDT
Less than a week away. Anyone going???

At LEAST 5 of us are going. More have said they were going.

Junction of hiways 56 (815) & 136 is where Whittakers Store is.
The range is 4 miles East on the road in front of the store.

Ahhh man! I hope I'm there in time for the tannerite. I always wanted to get a taste of the half pounders before I just dove in and bought a case.

Bring your winter coats though!

Living across the Ohio from Louisville, KY, when I first saw this I thought you ment the West End of Louisville, where you DO need a firearm, for protection.
Link Posted: 2/8/2006 4:15:08 AM EDT
too far for me to travel from Central Ky....plus I have to work some this weekend.

oh well.

Link Posted: 2/8/2006 12:36:12 PM EDT
Would love to. But I am in the process of remodeling my office/gunroom. Thus i can not attend.
Link Posted: 2/8/2006 1:11:13 PM EDT
I will be there for sure.
Link Posted: 2/8/2006 1:32:31 PM EDT
Unfortunately, It doesn't look like I'll be able to make it. Maybe next time.
Link Posted: 2/10/2006 6:22:11 PM EDT
The toys are in their cases and ammo is all accounted for. I should be there by 10am. Guess Incendiary and Armor Piercing Incendiary won't be an issue with the snow

If mamma wants to go big, bring her on! We'll get her behind the trigger on the 50 cal

Woke up and it's white outside!?! Dang it's snowing hard. Won't make it this time. Wanted to be there too.
Link Posted: 2/12/2006 11:07:56 AM EDT
Well, considering only 4 ARFCOMERS showed up we still had a blast. A little snow, a little tannerite, a little full auto, a little suppressor, a little 50 BMG, a little black plastic, and plenty of wolf ammo... what more could you ask for on a cold snowy day. Great to meet the guys that showed up! Let's do it again when its warmer so the rest of the guys can make it out.
Link Posted: 2/12/2006 1:03:16 PM EDT
Did you guys make it to Whittaker's shop? Anybody buy anything?
Link Posted: 2/12/2006 1:36:13 PM EDT
We all hit the shop. I bought some .308 and 8mm Mauser ammo but I don't know about the other guys stimulating Whittaker's economy. We also ate at the little joint across the road. Not a bad burger.
Link Posted: 2/12/2006 4:36:54 PM EDT
My buddy found a cherry 1942 Winchester 30 cal carbine at Whittakers before the shoot. Got a GOOD deal on it too!

I'll post some pics when I can.

A good time was had by all!
