maybe... I am unemployed at the moment, so when I am not out looking, I might be able to meet out there. I live in McKinney.

Did I hear Sunday? C&L.

I'm good to go, depending on which Sunday. But Hell yeah.

Members in North Texas are fricking lucky--there are several places for us to shoot and gather:
1. Hun Farm
2. TigerValley: both North and South.
3. TRG's ranch

Now this. What could be better?

Edted to add: C&L. How large is his property?

I'm in! If this is were I think it is the Dallas folks will have no trouble finding it. If they can find the Hun farm they can find this place blindfolded.

We may have to cobble up some target stands but I don't think that will be a problem.

Count me in...just give me a little notice.

Link Posted: 10/19/2003 8:16:03 PM EDT
FYI: not sure if its on yet, but ETH mentioned that possibly 2 weeks from Gunstock, depending on weather, we should have a formal gathering at the farm... let's figure out and finalized those dates too...
Link Posted: 10/20/2003 4:23:51 AM EDT
Ralph and tannerite.......that I would love to see.

A little activity could get that place back up and running again. That is about the only place left for the public to shoot in Grayson county.

I figure the earlest we will do this is the weekend of Sunday Nov 2, or the 9th



Doh!

Not the 9th. Please.....

TIGER VALLEY ( the Gunstock range) has also offered to allow us to camp on the range, BBQ, shoot. They talked about doing this every other month.

I have been too busy with Gunstock to make any plans for it, but the offer is there.

I'm somewhat of a newbie with the AR, tho' been lurking around a while and picking up some equipment along the way. I did make it down to GS, and had a great time.

Is there a formal list or anything for the D/FW area members? Is there anything more to do than just show up at a dinner or shoot? The range time in North Texas sounds like something I can get to with enough notice, but is there anyplace in the D/FW area to shoot more than just paper targets? Currently living in Arlington, and working in West Fort Worth.

This thread is worthless without a poll to pick the date.


I vote for 02 NOV.

Also, I've got several thousands of rounds left over from Gunstock that I need to expend. (Too muddy to haul all that gear everywhere).


How close can we park to the shooting line?

If its dry you can park ON the shooting line. Some guys have portable bench rests that lay across the p/u bed and they shoot from inside the bed itself. Seriously though, from the general parking area its about 60 feet or so from the 100 yd line. close enough for ya or do you need a little red wagon



Red Tractor.

Good. I like to keep the ammo in the truck, a table on the line for weapons. Plus it's nice to sit on the tailgate while loading mags.

That wasn't me with the red wagon! Besides, I don't think you understand how much ammo we're talking about.

This was me and another arfcommer at gunstock!


TRG- Your red tractor brought back memories of my grandfathers Massey. That sucker is probably older than him, but still runs like a dream.

No definate date set to my knowledge. Let's just get the ball rolling and we can make it work.

There is a formal list of DFW members somewhere... we all just pretty much post, where we plan on meeting, in the Texas forum. Usually we hit every gun show in the area, have lunch, and meet for dinner every month (so look for those events).... Kinda like this thread: have something fun to do, post it and several may try and meet up. Another example: Want to go to CTD or OldGunSupply one weekend, post it and see who else wants to tag along or meet up for lunch while you are out there.... That seems to be the best way to keep it working without being too formal.


BTW: DFW guys-- when/where is this month's dinner???

I would prefer the weekend of the 9th, since it's my only free weekend in November.

Well, I went out and checked it out tonight. Met the Owner, Ralph. Real nice guy. At first I did not think it was a place you would go shooting with wide open fields (school, bank, gas station in distance), and homes all around it, but Ralph told me they were his homes and everything else was fine. TB/PD was out yesterday with SMGs and all. He even had a Tannerite demo earlier.

He told me $3 person/day, any gun you want, as long as it is legal, anytime you want, though I did not confirm night shooting. Nice grassed area, big berm, target stands, pavilion, BBQ Grill, and only 25 yard walk from where you park to where you shoot from.

He even showed me his "little" yellow school bus (ie, Monster Truck).

Is anyone planning to go the Great Western gun show the weekend of November 8-9? It is supposed to be huge, several thousand tables at the fairgrounds. The Great Western gun show is coming to DFW because they couldn't have this gun show in Kalifornia anymore.

FAL Files shoot is the 23th

Theoretically the weekend of the 9th would be GREAT for me. My sister-in-law is coming into town and she is into guns and I wanted her to get a chance to shoot a class 3 because my poor butt doesn't have one. Frisco? Por Favor?

Sure, but you supply the ammo.

I'll supply the .22 for the .22 suppressed upper for the 16.
