    :D

    NFA Talk does a couple metering sessions each year. They had one last weekend, and the only other one this year is Sat 9/7 in Martin, GA. I’ve never been to one, but that isn’t too far away.

    When I asked for details, this was the answer:

    Me: What’s the general deal with these events? Never been to one. I have my share of hosts and cans, but I’d assume there’s some kind of plan going into it? RHR is ~2.5 hours away. That’s the one I’m looking at in case the specific event matters.

    Them: Bigwaylon you basically bring anything you'd like to meter and we typically start with a certain caliber say 22. Run through all the 22 stuff then move over to 9mm and continue till we have pretty much been through it all.


    Apparently all kinds of stuff to either shoot or see somebody else shoot. I’m hoping to have my most recent two F1 cans done by then, but not sure if that’ll happen. I’ve metered some of my stuff before at Rugged’s shop, but this event definitely interests me.

    Is that anything anybody else might be interested in attending?

    Anybody considering attending?

    I hope to have my three F1 cans back from getting a recore. I also hope to have my two newest ones (1.25”x6.5” 22LR and 9mm) done my then. The first scenario is the most likely, but fingers crossed for both. :D

    I would like to, if only to get info out there for my Griffin Alpha/Paladin since I didn't see it anywhere on that google doc, but I've been so busy lately, I doubt I'll be able to.

    btw thanks for sharing the link to that doc, definitely bookmarking that one! I'm a data guy so that's right up my alley.
