There's a chance I'll be off work ALL next week. With the Thanksgiving holiday, I've got plans pretty much Wednesday - Sunday. BUT, I'm thinking about hitting CE Monday. I've got a new RRA Varmint upper to break in. Anyone up for a visit?

Some of us have real jobs...

When/Where is the next gun show?

GREAT! Way to hi-jack my thread. Jerk. Now NO ONE will come shoot on Monday; everyone will be focused on the next gun show. What a pal you turned out to be. THANKS A LOT!!

But you didn't answer MY question...gun show...hello?!?

Sorry, how rude of me.

The next Eastman show is Dec 13-14 at the North Atlanta Trade Center.



Back to THE ORIGINAL TOPIC, you wouldn't play hookey Monday even if I offered you some Wolf ammo?

Hey Bookhound, Im in Loganville, and have a couple of RRA lowers with some Model 1 uppers I assembled a year ago and still havent fired them.
How about letting me know when you intend to be at CE, maybe I can sneak over there for a little while, It be good to meet some of you guys.

I would like to go, but I have to take a test on Monday. Any chance on Tuesday?

Well, I'd love to go, Lorraine would love to be there(she just eats up Wolf), but because of other lightweights like you, that are taking that week off, slobs like me have to be there to keep the crap running. What time were you thinking? I may be able to scoot after lunch...maybe.

Inatree, could you make it Tuesday instead?
Link Posted: 11/19/2003 5:07:17 PM EDT
Scratch that last post. I can't go Tues. It must be Mon.
Link Posted: 11/19/2003 8:07:22 PM EDT
How about going to ACM Monday? I just can't go toting all my usual CE stuff to the station where I'm going to be taking the test.

Ghost, you're gonna hate me, but the reason I want to hit the range is to put some ammo down that Varmiter. I really need something more like 100 yards to get the scope dialed in. Plus, I want to do kind of a modified "break in" of the barrel; you know, shoot a round and clean, shoot five rounds and clean, shoot ten rounds... Doing that at an indoor range without a bench would suck.

Book, let me know if you got that IM.
Link Posted: 11/20/2003 5:26:10 AM EDT
Yep. Thanks for the info. Owe you one.

If you're still planning on going to CE on Monday, I'd like to meet you there. I'm off on Sundays and Mondays, so I haven't been able to join in on the last couple of CE shoots.

I'll do a search for the directions you guys posted for the last trip.

Let me know what time to be there, and an approximate travel time from Woodstock.

Jon

BTW I've been lurking for quite a while and would like to thank everyone for all the research that you've done. I look forward to shooting my new AR for the first time this week.

Welcome! Yes, I'm still planning on going Monday. I guess I'll wait until traffic dies down a little, so I'll plan on getting there sometime around 10:00 or 10:15. I drive a red Honda Passport and I'll have a RRA 20" Varminter with me.

What kind of AR did you get?
Link Posted: 11/20/2003 1:15:07 PM EDT
Monday might just work for me, I have a new sight setup I need to try.
Link Posted: 11/20/2003 2:05:10 PM EDT
Bookhound,

I bought a new Bushmaster A3 Shorty. B&B Outdoors is in the same shopping center as my store, GA Paintball 2.0, in Roswell. They gave me a good deal and I am in the process of upgrading/damaging it myself. Due to an eye injury about four years ago, I now am learning to shoot left-handed, so don't be too critical of the poor groups I throw down-range.

Look forward to meeting you. I am guessing about an hour travel time. I'll be in a white Cavalier.

At least you have an excuse, unlike some members of our posse!

Yes, Still trying, but the closer Monday gets ,the more I'm adding to my monday schedule. Its looking pretty doubtful.
I'm starting a new project next week,(a 21k sq.ft. hangar at the Lawerenceville airport) and my workload is building quicker than I anticipated.
I do appreciate the invite though, I ll keep checking this forum to see what you guys are cooking up.
Link Posted: 11/23/2003 3:20:24 PM EDT
Bookhound,

You still going tomorrow? If it ain't pooringass rain I will be there by 1000 hrs.

If you happen to have a 7.62X51 weapon you want to check headspace on, I will bring my military field gauge, no disassembly required. Free checks are good for everyone...
Link Posted: 11/23/2003 3:41:02 PM EDT
You are gonna kill me, but some work stuff has just come up. I can't go. I'm sorry.
Link Posted: 11/23/2003 4:05:07 PM EDT
Oh man, got me all hot and bothered, ready to go shootin, and you wimp out on us.....

I ain't even going to tell you about the two hot babes (with guns, no less) that saw your pics on the web and wanted to come meet you.

I guess I will have to let them down easy.

Link Posted: 11/23/2003 6:16:50 PM EDT
Man, I'm sorry. When work calls, unfortunately I have to answer.

Sounds like a perfect opportunity to, uh, let the bolt slam home, if you catch my drift AND I THINK YOU DO.

Alright, from here on out I think I'm going to set up a "Does Bookhound blow us off" pool.

I think I'll put my money on "Yes" and let it ride...

That's the worst quotehack you've ever done. You can do better.

A friend and I drove out to CE despite the weather. Got there around 10:45 and the rain was letting up, but the wind was pretty brisk.

We stayed around 3 hours. I was really impressed with how well the Bushmaster shot.

When I first arrived, we walked down to the 100 yd range and asked if anyone was from AR-15. One whooter replied, "Aw Hell, I'm leaving before all those guys show up." If this is the typical reaction you guys get from the wooden gun guys, I'm definitely in the right place.

If anyone plans on shooting on Mondays during the holidays, let me know. I'm headed up to some range in Resaca, off of I-75, on Dec 8, if any one wants to meet me there.
