Well lets start it here.
When is a good day for everyone Muzzle loader season ends the 11th I think, but I am not too sure. I'm not much of a deer hunter so I really don't follow the season. Prairie dogs and coyotes is a different story.

If we can lets do it on Saturday the 13th.

lets get it started here.

I have some ammo burning some holes in my bandolers

"Gun show,
13-14 St. PaulTouchstone Energy Center 8-5/9-3"

I have about $600 worth of shit I have to get at the St. P gun show that Sat.

Do they shoot at Princeton on Sundays?? I think so, we shot w/ Sully on Sun. during the rifle course.

I will start looking into a babysitter, as that is usually the determining factor on my attending. Generally I am willing to blow off anything else to go shoot, but the kid comes first. He is 8 now, so maybe it’s time for him to attend a shoot.

I don't see why it'd be a problem for your son to attend. I went to a group-shoot when I was 10 (though not something like an AR15.com shoot)! I'm willing to bet your son isn't the type to run out past the firing line during live fire, and if he's 1/5 as respectable and mature (for his age) as you seem to come across in your posts he's better off than me! I forget whether I got my first rifle at 6 yrs or 8 yrs, but I was very responsible with that firearm when I got it. I usually bring one of my 22LRs to the AR15 shoots because I can't afford to blast away all day with 223...

8 isn't too bad an age for exposure. I know for a fact that there are enough father/grandfater types to help mind the lad.

I'll be there if this materializes.

The only day I could shoot is Sunday due to the show.


any new news....???...

Right now, Sunday looks good for me as well.

I will try and get a hold of Kenny on Sunday, and post results here.

I called Princeton. It seem that the head cheese is out of town. His fill in told me Sunday the 14th should not be a problem getting in, but full auto is not allowed on Sundays. He will check on Saturday for us. There might already be something happening there on Sat. He also wasn't sure about a group rate. My suggestion at this point would be to go back to DelTone that Sunday, if they can accommodate us. It’s cheaper and the only setback is no FA. We would be looking at $5 a gun at Princeton, and just $9 for the day at DT. If everyone is set on Princeton I will try to work something out.
Send your opinions my way. I will contact Paulie this week to see what’s up.

$5 a gun? ouch, for the 4+ guns I would bring if I can go.

Which would be better for cold weather? I haven't shot at Deltone or Princeton before.
Link Posted: 12/7/2003 3:52:07 PM EDT
Hope it's nice. I hate shootin' in the cold. I'll admit it. I'm a puss.


Sunday at Del-Ton my vote. What ever everyone else desides is fine w/ me.

I'm with Beerjager...Sunday, Del-Ton.

I agree! You are, Buddy!

Clearly evident in how you gave up chasing that squirrel around OGC last spring after you shook 5 trees & made it plummet 30 feet... You didn't even chase it after it fell!!! What a puss! J/K Amigo!

I likely can't make it shooting this upcoming weekend, because I'm swamped with final projects, and final exams that are all due either this week, or next. Classes are a BITCH this semester! Next semester, I'm taking 17 credits of nearly all 4000 and 5000 level classes (just one class is only a 1000 level). I hope that sometime this christmas break to setup another ARFCOM MN Beer Drinker's Associate meeting so we can all get together for some brew & fun.

I picked up a whole shit load of bowling pins, But I dont think we can shoot them at Del-Tone/Luth, Maybe Paulie wouldn't mind if we use that range with the swinging targets.

Either way anything works for meThe Wife will be out shopping.

I left a message with Paulie. Still waiting for confirmation, but it looks like Sunday the 14th 11am to 4pm @ Deltone. After hearing from Paulie I will make another post to confirm.
Link Posted: 12/8/2003 9:09:36 PM EDT
Thanks Quinn!!!!!!!!!!!
Link Posted: 12/10/2003 9:21:02 PM EDT
Paulie confirmed, Sunday is a go!!!
Link Posted: 12/11/2003 8:42:21 AM EDT
Cool, I'm seeing if any of my friends what to go with me.

Kare 11 says cloudy high 30, low 17 for Sunday.

Are there barriers up to stop the wind? Wondering if it would be worth it to see if we have a propane heater. (I know dress warm anyway!)

Looking forward to fully depleting my ammo stock.

I've got a propane heater - If I'm back from my poker tournament before 2 am, I'll be up there and bring it with me. What time is this deal starting?

If anyone has an extra propane tank, bring it with.

Lurch, nice avatar! Did you get a haircut?

Anybody have a spotting scope they could bring?

No, I'm just using a new brand of Mousse, but thanks for noticing.

See you guys tomorrow morning.

Wish I would have had more money for ammo. :( I'll have some left over.
