LuvW repels the liberal hoards.

Heh, it's late, and I keep nodding off between posts. So writing "hoards" for "hordes" is not so bad. :)

That’s a 9mm Sterling submachinegun that LUV W is shooting courtesy of mylife, IIRC

That was a wee bit of rain we had here about 0200, iwas on the 2nd floor of three and man did it pour! Mesquite Metro Airport is reporting 1.5” from 2 to 3 AM.

Will be launching out of Mesquite here in a few minutes for the journey back home

I thought that's what it looked like, but with a longer than standard barrel.

Dang, I would have liked to shoot it myself, and I had plenty of 9mm to feed it.

FWIW, I punched the trip computer as I left the motel Sun AM, when I got home it read

8.5 hrs...561.7 miles...29.3 gals of gas used and 19.1 avg MPG

I left about 6:30am and made it home right at 5pm, that included filling the truck up (twice), a nice breakfast at a Cracker Barrel on 35E and a lunch stop just before I left Oklahoma. Not to mention several stops at the used coffee depository:-) I can make the trip on one tank of gas even!

I had no traffic issues until I got about 20 miles from home and ran into some road construction but the delay was very slight.

Well we will have to see how next year TCMS works out, should have some more bumper stickers maybe even.

Regards

Thanks to TheMom for the great pic.s, nicely done.

I enjoyed the shoot, the food, and the fellowship of fantastic FReepers. I was saddened when I had to leave a little early, but I do want to thank mylife for unlocking the gate for me.

Anyone who missed this shoot missed out on a lot of fun and good times, so make plans now to attend the next one if at all possible.

I was glad to see you there, my friend.
It always makes me happy to see good patriotic people with
awesome firepower blast the holy crap out of targets. And things.

Makes me feel better about the state of the country, it does.

Finally getting my pix up. Overall I was very disappointed. I did NOT do my best for many reasons and I apologize & I hope there are some here you will enjoy along the way. Several of you took wonderful pix...Thanks for sharing them.

You may post any here you wish. I don't know why some are sideways ... they were NOT in the program I used during editing. I will see if there is a way to rotate in FB.

I am using my HP Notebook rather than iMac which is at home (currently I am in OK)

The pix are on Facebook but I have them noted for PUBLIC viewing. Please tag yourself wherever you wish if you are a FB member. Remove the tags I put on you if you dont like them.

A few notes. Lauren... I included a few pix of you that I thought were really good. did NOT ID you. I know you did not want to be in ... same with NYTexan. If you are in them you are rather blended in a crowd. There are a few pix of Abby. NO names were used on FB. She was my hero that day.. truly. What a sweetheart

As always, people are welcome to use my pix where they wish.. HOWEVER if a Pulitzer ever is involved, my name better be on it!!!!

PIX HERE

My sincere thanks for inviting me to participate. I wanted to for so many years & finally there & not really up to par. thanks to MyLife for making all the "range arrangements". What a nice facility for our event.

Thanks to NYTexan for his kind considerations all the way around. Good old southern hospitality from a Buffalo Yankee! LOVE IT.

The wonderful chef! cpdiii and his High school buddy who was his first assistant. Thanks so much for the great work & contribution you made with the food. Even though I didn't eat the meat FReeper pups Josy & Toby appreciated your giving them a hunk of meat! Maybe made up a little for the boom booms they truly did NOT LIKE

so many more.. great margaritas TheMom... Water truly appreciated Ester...great conversation with all.

It is never a disappointing things to get together with patriots, is it?

When stevie_d_64 fired his 50 cal., I thought someone had set off a can of tannerite right behind me, lol, - that sucker was LOUD, heheh.

It was a real pleasure to meet all y’all.
