And so begins our annual 7th TexasCowboy Memorial Shoot.
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 TheMoms Kick Ass Enchiladas.
The only set tourist place is The Lady Lex.
Friday evening we will meet at Captain Bennys, 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 Fayes, 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, Schwenkes 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-sixtys, highs in the mid-eightys.
You’re so sweet! Thank you, and may God bless and keep you, too.
That was one tasty big bird, wasn’t it! I didn’t know that you were photographing me there. Dang.
Oh! And I forgot to tell you that the mutant alien lime/lemon/orange/grapefruit wasn’t too happy about going to Ohio, and it tried several times to hide or escape, but I always dug it out from under the car seat. It’s being held prisoner on the bar, and none too happy about it.
I was just keeping an eye on my Glock.
It’s my buddy.
Suh! I would nevah presume to abscond with a real man’s Glock!
And thanks again for allowing me to fire it.
I’m obligated to be immediately present if it misfires or jams.
Which it don’t, but it could.
Safety was going on all around and it was unobtrusive.
Mrs alfa6 has been home two plus days now. She can navigate the 15 steps to the upstairs slowly but surely. We have been out for walks on the sidewalk twice a day the last two days. The Mrs is up to about 100 yards or so. Don't want to overdue it just yet. She can also go up and down the two steps between the den and the dining room with out any help.
And a big thanks to all y'all for the prayers and whatnot, I am sure it helped:-)
As far as next year goes let me know when and where and we will do out darndest to be there.
Those muzzle flashes are wily critters.
That’s it and we would go to the one on Washington Street in Mission Hills!
Looks very similar, unless most of them have that basic banded look.
All I know is that I LOVE Schilo’s rootbeer and I don’t even normally like root beer. LOL! Maybe it’s so nice and cold in those frosted mugs on a hot day of walking in San Antonio. :)
Thanks for the update on the Mrs. I have been keeping her in my prayers.
Hopefully she will be able to tag along with you next year.
A Glock? Misfire or jam? I’m sorry, but I don’t understand...
And I bet you made a great hall monitor in school, too!
And...AND...it needs to be a t-shirt too! That would have just been perfect! (Don’t ask me how to or where to buy...I just love the design he created!)
This is the typical mood after one of these high speed vaca's.
There is a cure...attend the next gathering.
In the meanwhile, anticipation will have to substitute...
Howdy, BB! LBH!!
How are you this evening? Do you have more pictures to post? :)
Ooooh! If Gunner does a new graphic each year, those t-shirts will be very collectible**. Great idea, LUV!
**I’ll buy every one of them.
There were so many shutterbugs with us that I never took a single pic myself! LOL
I noticed! So...do you have any more of pen’s pictures to post? :) I KNOW she took bunches and bunches!
Eaker looks on, remaining aware of firing line discipline.
I would, too! We had t-shirts for some of the earlier shoots, and I love wearing them. I just didn’t pack one this time ‘round.
NYT did, though. :)
I will probably never miss another one if at all possible!!
Okey-doke. Now I’m wondering who took the ones of us ladies with JimRob. hmmmm.......
I wanted to see it again! :)
Btw...my source on places to stay in the hill country next June was no help at all. They stay at hotels. We can do better than that I would think. Today was kinda crazy but I will try to keep looking tomorrow.
A few links for the search:
Tastes like chicken!
Laugh out loud funny!!
Guns frighten me.
I’m glad I wasn’t able to make it to where those guns weren’t.
Or that dog.
Love the picture of the pier....and the others, too. Kitty looks happy to be where you all are! :)
Seconded. Your kids were great. The boy, we bonded on Video Games. I’m just a kid myself in many ways.
Bunking together would be fine for you guys, but you know what would make it so I REALLY wouldn't go?
The second sentence of your quote.
LOL! And I got ‘em all, too!
That rifle is sweeeet!
Woo hoo!! Just got home!! Awesome trip!!
That was one hella long road trip!
Poor Kitty ran smack-dab into my leg Saturday night. Good thing I have lots of soft padding.
She seemed okay, so I didn’t make a fuss, and she didn’t hit my shin bone, just the muscle and fat on the side.
She really is a precious little puppy, and it was love at first sight, which you may have noticed, Eaker. [smiles]
I see what you did there. ;-)
Glad you made it safe and sound. Time to get ready for next year, LOL!
It was wonderful to meet you, Sheila, and Chris, and I am (and I bet everyone else is) looking forward to seeing y’all again.
Calm down, Charlie.
I'm just kidding, for my only roommate will be Bryan.
After nearly 33 years, half my life, I'd miss the guy sleeping next to me.
Besides, I snore. ;-)
Great pic of the twins!
Problem was the extractor springs btw.
Sweetie, I don’t care where you sleep. Just don’t room me with THAT guy (you know who). :)
If gunner will make the design, we can order shirts from Cafe Express.
Well, poo! We don wan ta stay n no stinkin hotel. ;-)
Thanks for the links ~ when I have a few minutes I’ll check them out. Really appreciate your help.
Glad you guys made it home safe & sound.
This year’s graphic would not translate well onto a shirt.
I’ll keep that in mind when designing next year’s.. make it shirt-friendly.
