7th Annual TexasCowboy Memorial Shoot - Live Thread

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.

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.

Abscond hell.

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.

Hope the Missus is continuing her recovery! We missed you and trust that you’ll be able to make it next year...both of you! :)

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.

Regards

alfa6 ;>}

I wanted to get a pic of that muzzle blast, but it eluded me.

Those muzzle flashes are wily critters.

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.

And I bet you made a great hall monitor in school, too!

I miss everybody too. Maybe that is why i have been in a pissy mood all day....lol.

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...

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. :)

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.

We should probably bunk together the next time. Let Laz stay with Onyx’s stalker, LOL!

Bunking together would be fine for you guys, but you know what would make it so I REALLY wouldn't go?

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]

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. ;-)

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.
