And so begins our annual 7th TexasCowboy Memorial Shoot.

Photobucket

Thank you humble gunner for the graphic.

TexasCowboy (aka COB1) was a true Texas gentleman, great friend, patriot, and a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment. It is truly an honor to continue a tradition he started many years ago, hosting shoots for FRiends around the great state of Texas.

Many FReepers are coming into town on Thursday so that they can have a tourist day on Friday. Those lucky people are going to be made (a good) miserable Thursday evening by enjoying TheMom’s Kick Ass Enchilada’s.

The only set tourist place is The Lady Lex.

Friday evening we will meet at Captain Benny’s, 103 Fulton Beach Road Fulton, TX 78382, at 8:00 p.m., for a delicious seafood dinner. (They do not take credit cards or serve liquor ~ so remember to bring your cash & booze.)

Saturday morning we meet for breakfast at Alice Faye’s, 910 North Fulton Beach Road, Fulton, TX 78358, at 8:00 a.m. The shoot is scheduled to start at 10:00 a.m. at, Schwenke’s Gun & Pistol Range, 4407 FM 1069 Aransas Pass, TX, 78336. Mr. Schwenke has reserved the 25 yard shooting station for our group to use as “home base”. The only major rule at this range is do not shoot the livestock. A BBQ lunch will be served at 12:30ish.

Once the shooting is done some of us will be going to the Rockport Seafair, while others will go back to the Pelican Bay cottages for some R&R. Saturday evening will be filled with yummy junk food and margaritas!

According to the forecast, it looks as the weather will be perfect. Lows in the mid-sixty’s, highs in the mid-eighty’s.

I was a little let down with the chocolate malt, but the burger and fries rocked and the atmosphere was wonderful.

Oh, he posted upthread that Sheila did not like the old, 50’s-style motel rental because of the tiny rooms and awkwardness of moving around in them, so they went to the Holiday Inn, I believe.

They’re settled in, but Jim is expecting Sheila to rub it in since she was against the nostalgic room in the first place. Poor guy!! [giggles] [forgive me, Jim!]

Speaking of nostalgia, is "Geneva on the lake" not a good date place?

Dang! I’m glad I know you.

Hey, I found 2 brand new CR2 batteries in my range bag Sunday. Is that what the Vortex uses? Cause I can’t figure out why I have them. If those are for the Vortex, I’ll get them to you.

I think that was for last night, right? Perhaps I’m confused, although I did get a very good night’s sleep (11 hours).

Dunno brother.
I have never even gotten time to sight that Vortex Strike Fire in.

I was gonna bring it on this trip and dial it in but fooled around with the CMMG AR 15 .22 conversion instead.

It worked like a hose.
No FTF or FTE

Post# 396 is dated today, 10/9, and Jim says that they’re in a Holiday Inn, so they’re probably all right.

Yeah, I worry about him too.

And I REALLY have to get to bed. [smiles]

I would have ordered a chocolate malt too. Too hard to pass up, especially at a roadside place called HEALTH CAMP!

It was not a proper malt.
Everything else was spot on.

Pretty decent lunch

Jim’s been posting the incoming today, so he’s doing great, wherever he is! I’m guessing on the road, but what do I know?

Good night again, more hugs and kisses from your First Darling.

Only 28 days till the Marxist is VOTED OUT and his media bubble bursts.

Keep praying.

I understand. I love the old time drug store “proper” malts.

As a kid (age 8-10) we used to walk to the corner drug store 4 blocks away, sit at the counter and I think those malts were 15 cents and the plain milk shakes were 10 cents. Of course, you understand, I’m older than dirt.

It distresses me that malts are disappearing.

I used to hang at this place in The Old Lady’s hood.

This one is in Alpine, (20 miles east of San Diego). The roof is slanted because it snows in the winter.
