There will be an Eastman show May 31 to June 1 in Marietta.
Who wants to meet at the show, look for ammo, AR's, mags, and then meet at the "Dome" before going to eat Mexican food?

Since my car was sabotaged at the range last weekend, I will be replacing the EGR valve and possibly the PCV valve, too. It cannot take that long, the hardest part seems to be getting the parts. Advance Auto doesn't carry them(EGR)..."They are too new"...WTF?!? If I can get finishedin time I will be there. I can call Book since ARH is too cheap to have a cell phone. Oh, wait...is Book going?

Well, up until about 30 minutes ago I was going, but now I'm not sure. My Mom and Dad might be putting their house on the market and they need some work done to it. My schedule is so screwed up anyway I wasn't sure I could go Saturday or Sunday.

I'll know for sure by early Friday (like lunch time).


Hey, Byte. So you're handy with cars huh? I just had the EGR valve and a bunch of other crap replaced on the wife's car. Next time I'll come to you first.

If I had a cell phone, then I would have to answer it. Bastards.

I am going to watch the weather. It looks like I may try to go on Sunday. So, if any of you go on Saturday, post a report and let me know if I need to spend time and 7 bucks, or not.

Won't be any meeting at the dome this time around, folks... I'll be busy this weekend.

Eat a taco for me, though.

What is this show usually like. Worth a drive?
Link Posted: 5/29/2003 3:46:03 PM EDT
Answer # 2...It is a small venue but it is usually packed. I usually always go cause it is so close to me.

No fun show for me this weekend. Got to help the parents around the house.

Oh yea, and I just dropped $500 in a parking lot. So I’m broke for the next month. Here’s the story.

That's why you DON'T say things like this:


Yes, thank you chainshaw for teaching this Java programmer/web developer how to post a link using a word and not just the whole link. You'd be amazed at the stuff I still don't know how to do.


You called Murphy, and he picked up the phone.

<edit: kidding aside, that sucks pretty hard, man>

I might go on Sunday to pick up some 5.56 ammo if the prices are good.

If someone goes on Saturday, could you post a report on 5.56 ammo prices?

Appreciate that ARH. I think I'm good though. I just need some ammo for the 'Bama shoot, but I can either scrape together the funds I need or dip into some of my ammo stash.
Link Posted: 5/30/2003 3:08:14 AM EDT
Damn mark that sux, If I had the extra cash I'd pick up the whole case of Q3131A and you could get me back when you have the cash.

I will be getting 500rds at the shoot...oh wait, you don't shoot 'The Wolf'...you can watch me shoot. I do need someone to help mix Tannerite. Hell, I have to learn OTJ at the shoot. This might get dangerous.

Thanks guys. I'm going through the house today finding all kinds of crap I don't need. A lot of it will start to show up on the EE.

Also, I went through all my ammo and stuff today and realized that when you keep all your mags loaded and you have 27 20-rounders and 24 30-rounders, you have a lot of ammo. I don't think I'll even need to dip into the ammo stash for the 'Bama shoot.

You guys have fun. I'll be working at my parents house (and not spending money!).

See you all next week.

I'm going to pass on the gun show, I'm going to get some range time in at CE bright and early at 10:00, 9:30 if the nazi is there. I'll try to get a bench right next to him ad I'll fart alot AND bring my super loud XM193 ammo.

My ammo from WholesaleHunter should arrive today, 176.50 to your door is a great deal, get in if you fit in!

Hey Book, 1260 rounds should be sufficient for the FOPfest on the 7th but it wont last for the Tennesee shoot on the 21st. It's amazing how you dont count the ammo in your mags, I never do either.

AMMO GROUP BUY???

So, as of Fri nite(now), who is gonna make it?

I plan on getting to the show around 10:30 and sticking around for Mexi-lunch. Did someone have a specific Mexican restaurant in mind?

I only saw one stripped lower for sale in the entire show.
It was an Olympic and I think he wanted $179.00 for it.

I saw Century stripped lowers. I'm not sure how their quality rates, though.

Ross...the mags I picked up are original FN mags. Not bad for $6, eh?
