thats true who knows may have a chitload show I can't figure why more haven't said anything more
Lurking is a silent skill...
Actually, I'm seriously hoping to be there, but my work schedule has been so unpredictable lately that I hesitate to make any commitments. So... which is worse: say you'll be there and not show up or not say it and show up?
We're at a dozen attendees so far, should be plenty by the time the actual date rolls around.
Definitely not saying it and showing up would be worse...
Stragglers unidentified by a forum name will be rejected unless the property owner vouches for them.
Yeah, I'm down with the non-liability form, etc., and would/will certainly notify y'all as soon as I know.
I make it a point never to surprise a gathering of firearms afficionados.
First off @Windini
You gonna try to carpool with me?
I'll bring steel and my 4 wheeler to tend targets. I will kick in cash as well.
That is....unless I have become persona non grata.
You ain't non-grata with me!
Car-pooling might work; I got a grill I could bring if still needed, and maybe some other goodies to throw in. I wanna shoot, but don't mind pulling a grill / kp shift.
Bed of my truck will be pretty full. We could fit a small grill.
It has wheels.
Sort of. (Weber kettle)
What could go wrong?
if need be we can give you either my number or matt can his unless he doesn't want either way I can give you mine so if you find you can come at last minute you can call and let me know then you'd be fine
PM me if you need/want my number.
@eddie0225 you may give my contact information to anyone who will need it for the purpose of the M&G.
I don't wanna see my phone number scratched into Statesville service station bathrooms....
well duh I got your number windi doesn't if he wants mine or yours all he needs to do is pm me or anyone for that matter it aint like every telemarketer in God's creation don't have it already lol
I can handle telemarketers, I don't want weirdos with diarrhea is all I'm saying...
Oh that's the fun part getting them all hot on the phone then busting their bubble.

What kind of steel are you guys bringing? I might tote some in too.
My question is along the same lines.
What's the Target set ups? Bring your own paper hangers, steel stands and such?
Is shooting clays out of the question? (difficult to clean up the pieces)
I have 10 pieces of AR500 if I can find them.
Yes to the target stands & steel hangers, definitely will be needed. I don't see any reason why we couldn't do clays.
I ve got a thrower ( spring and hand ) I can bring.
Bring it! I'll bring my Over/Under and some clays.
Just my opinion but clays in a pasture with horses should be a no go. They would cut the hell out of the horses frogs.
Thanks guys! Pm(s) comin' yer way.
Voice of experience?
I am in need of some range therapy.
We can ask the property owner and let him decide. Clays crumble when you step on them, they aren't as likely to hurt a horse as say a rock/gravel, but I'm willing to leave that to him to decide.
I was thinking about the plastic shot wadding.
I was thinking of shooting clays over the pond, ultimately it's up to the property owner. I'm inclined to bring more than what I may get to shoot, just in case.
Allow me to re-phrase:
I was thinking of all the plastic shot wadding that will likely be strewn all over this man's pasture.
Or in his pond?
Would the pond be considered wet lands and steel shot only ?
I'm gonna hafta see the Vegas line on this before committing either way.
I'll see if I can get some laser time at work and cut some 1/4" ar500 stuff for 50 or 100yd rimfire. Not sure if there's any thicker plate laying around.
I understand your concern, my point is that if the property owner isn't concerned then we'll be OK, and if he is we'll absolutely respect that. Should we bar folks from shooting slugs through a slug barrel for the same reason? How about saboted rounds through a black powder gun?
I guess I need to contact the landowner and find out his opinion ahead of time.
Yes. It's a watering pond for livestock, so no lead if we can help it.
If you guys go getting weird on me, I'm out.
I think that's no lead in the pond, right?
I can contact and find if shotguns and possibly clays ate alright, horses are different than cattle, shotcups and sabots I wouldn't think would be a problem. Clays may I will check

How many of yous are bringing your wives and or kids ?
I think this is most reasonable.
I also think, for all Eddie's efforts, we should take up a collection to get some punctuation keys for his crapatalk.
Definitely not bringing the wife. Hadn't considered the kid, but he's 10. Didn't figure it was really open to him.
It's open to everyone, kids included.
ok just got word back that clays are fine but he'd like for them to be shot into pond. I think that had already been mentioned. So it is official clays are ok in the pond now we'll have to figure out how to do them into the pond and not be in line of fire with rifles shooting toward the pond as we don't want anyone getting shrapnel from shots on steel although that might be a new shooting sport dodging shrapnel and shooting clays the do all sport. Where you not only shoot at clays but you could become same as clays and be hit tooooo. lol
