And I like the folks who frequent it. I have a great time shooting with you all.

As a friend, I would be remiss in not warning you.

DO NOT TRUST that moron who was at TOM BEAN. He has tried to fuck someone over here who is a great friend and a great board member. One of the good guys.

Remember the fable. A scorpian is trying to get to the other side of the river. A turtle offers him a ride on his back. Halfway across, the scorpian stings the turtle and as the turtle is dying, he asks the scorpian why he did that, the scorpian replied, you knew what I was when you offered me the ride.

That man is a scorpian, and anyone who associates with him knowing this gets what they deserve.

BTW the friend on this board, is NOT the first person he has fucked over.

Choose your friends wisely.

Pssst. It was a frog. But we get the point.

Never trust a turtle. They are horrible judges of character.

"Would you help me cross the river?" The scorpion asks the turtle.


- "Hop on!" Says the turtle generously, "but you have to promise not to sting me?"


- "I promise." The scorpion declares.

He then jumps on. The turtle swims across the river. Just as they get to the other bank the scorpion stings the turtle.


- "Why did you do that?" Asks the turtle painfully right before he takes his last breath and sinks under the water.


- "it is in my nature..." The scorpion answers. Aesop's Fables

The metaphor in this little story reflects how impossible it is to go against one's nature.

Never fuck with a jedi master.

you forgot the part where the scorpion reasons with the turtle that if he stings the turtle while crossing the river, they both will die

Dear Jedi master: At least you are spelling "scorpion" correctly now that you are quoting it.

Scorpion and the FROG

Scorpion and the FROG

Scorpion and the FROG

Scorpion and the FROG

Scorpion and the FROG

The Tortoise was a modification of the original... by Bidpai, another fable teller. Not Aesop. Aesop was the Scorpion and the Frog.


The force is weak with this one.....

Long story, something that happened at the first Gunstock in 2003.

There's nothing to see here - please move along...

While you may feel there is "nothing to see...." this is an open forum sir... and a comment was made along with what I think is an appropriate question.

If no one cares to elaborate, than simply ignore the question...thanks.

You are misinformed. The incident occurred well before Gunstock 2003.

I went to my first ARFCOM event last weekend...it was awesome!!!! These people are very nice and friendly...I don't know this person they are talking about but the individual did not ruin the Tom Bean event for me. I plan on attending a lot more ARFCOM events based on my experience...don't let this one thread distract from the DFW crew....just my .02

Wow. I had a great time at TOM BEAN. It was my first shoot too. Didn't know there was "drama" in the mix? People are people I guess. Didn't really sense any hostility. Just lots of testosterone. Just kidding.

Yeah, I know. I used to attend Arfcom shoots a lot back when the board was smaller... We had a nice little thing going with our little close-knit "Texas Black Rifle Shoot" group - very similar to what y'all have going with the Tom Bean and Hun Farm shoots. Anyway, the next thing we knew, certain individuals decided to incorporate the name and blow it up into a big fustercluck of a commercial event. This is what eventually morphed into GunStock, which from my sideline obervations appeared to be a giant cesspool of drama.

In the early days of this board, great times were had with seemingly good folks who eventually proved to be shitbag drama queens. There's a bunch of good folks who I'm sure still lurk around here from time to time who enjoyed the TBRS shoots we had 5 or 6 years ago, but the ensuing drama left a bad taste in their mouths, and they would simply rather not deal with it.

Funny how it only took few people to ruin the fun for everyone else by dragging drama into the picture.

Well, "Gunstock" is no more, and has morphed back into what you initially enjoyed. MADUCE at Tiger Valley has a great facility, and we have a blast every time he invites us for a shoot. Make an effort to come out.

The Texas crew is awesome, and I've made a lot of friends participating in the various events. The one individual in question I've actually never met, but I guess his appearance just opened some old wounds. No big deal - everyone will get over it.

Quitter.



Now - just poking at you.... but nothing was "ruined". As long as there are good people who still want to shoot together, and meet for gun shows, lunches, and campouts.... there is a lot of good times to be had. Deciding not to come out because of a bad experience is certainly your choice.... but we still very much enjoy each other company, skill sharing, and comraderie. I dont have any groups of friends that dont experience a little drama from time to time. Even with my real friends.

I Agree: I go to put lead down range,Tiger Valley is the only place i get to shoot past 100 yds. I will be at every shoot that T.J. puts on. I have made some new friends down there and enjoy the company as much as the shoot.As you get older [me] you learn to take what you can get, this is my entertainment of choice, i feel lucky to shoot with such a fine group of folks. And yes; there is drama in life, but you don't dwell on it.Enjoy what you have. Later, Wayne B.

You know - I think you could have made your point without quoting all of that atrocity that masquerades as a song. There must be something deep down that really made you WANT to share that with all of us. Could it be that the only Smiley you didn't post, but should have, is THIS ONE?
