I find that delaying my commitment adds to the drama.

I like the way you waited until one day after Constitution Day to announce.

Brilliant strategy. You are such a rogue.

When you have a minute let me know what the diameter of the Tannerite jars are so I can cut the right size hole.

If it’s easier you can compare it to some canned food, like a tuna fish can or whatever is hand.

Much obliged

Range report:

Friday, the first day of Autumn, was a beautiful day here in Texas with highs in the low 80s so I took advantage of the day to do recon on the range to see how it had fared this brutal Texas summer.

The river is about 4 foot lower, but as wide as it ever was and flowing nicely.
Mickey added more white rock to the roads and there are 6 nice benches.
Waterhill, I could use any cable spool you could provide as another bench or as a place to post targets.
I myself will bring two additional benches.
The Pistol/rifle range is in good shape and tannerite should not be a problem.
The 400 yard range is suddenly missing the new gongs.
I have no idea what happened to them, but two gongs still remain.
The trees still have leaves providing shade, but they are under stress from this drought and are already shedding leaves.

Remember to bring chairs if you want them.

A made reservations monday for the enclosed sunporch at the Cotton Gin for breakfast under the name “Texas Cowboy” with an arrival time of 9-9:30 AM on the 22nd of Oct
FYI The Cotton Gin has WiFi.

I haven’t heard anything on the BBQ from cpdiii, so as a back up we may BBQ at NYTexans after the shoot.
cpdiii, give us a check in on where we stand with that.
It is no big deal either way.

Also, if you want to play with the pseudo full auto AR 15 bring some .223 or 5.56x45 Nato ammunition.

I was having a hoot with that friday but it eats ammo pretty quickly :)

I look forward to seeing you all!

Attention: NY Texan, Mylife and Freeper shooters

I have been reading the threads about the shoot and have not commented. All is well and I will be cooking. The last time I cooked I spent to much time cooking and not enough time shooting. This time the following is what I had in mind.

I will skip the breakfast and drive from my home in Salado straight to the shoot sight. Set up my gear for cooking and then start shooting when the Freeper Gang arrives. About an hour before time to eat I will fire up the pit and cook. This time I will have BBQ chicken and and Brisket.

My local BBQ man makes some great stuff and I will pick this up from him and chill it on ice and just warm it up to serve.

I will also be bringing some Bambi Burgers (actually only half Bambi and the other half beef otherwise it is too dry) and I will be cooking these. I shall also have some hot dogs to throw on the fire.

If a couple of people could bring some side dishes it would be good, i.e. potato salad, salad, beans or what ever. It makes it easier for me to just concentrate on getting the meat heated and or cooked.

If anyone does not like Bambie burgers I will also bring some just plain beef ones to cook.

Looking forward to seeing good people again this year.

October 22, 2011 BE THERE!

I will be bringing a few toys that everyone is welcome to shoot, with one exception. Eaker can not shoot the M1 Garand, :)

Sorry Eaker, the devil made me say it.

I will bring my almost famous pinto beans.

Maybe those of us that are meeting the night before at NYTexan’s place can have a “Fix the Sides” party.

It is going to be tough, likely I will just be there in spirit, as I will send some donor ammo if I cannot fire it myself.

Too many kids with multiple activities that weekend.

My oldest is on the high school dance team and football season is tough for anything.
