Okay, so we've had a date picked for a while. We're less than two weeks out (YIKES!) and it's time to nail down the important stuff: Who's bringing what?
Every year I haul out a significant portion of the G. armory only to bring most of it back unshot. This year I want to streamline things a bit and hopefully not throw my back out lugging case after case onto the shooting line. In that spirit, here's my list of ordnance so far:
VEPR (.308 Winchester)
Turkish Mauser (8mm)
Ruger 10/22 Takedown
Mossberg 590 (12 gauge)
Winchester 1300 (12 gauge)
Smith & Wesson model 27 (.357 Magnum)
Colt Gold Cup National Match 1911 (.45 ACP)
High Standard H-D Military (.22LR)
Now, this list is absolutely not inclusive; I reserve the right to add in anything else I haven't shot in a while to bring with me. I'm also more than happy to bring along something for someone to try ot - if you've seen something I've posted here, give a shout and let me know and I'll drag it along. I'm certain I'll bring more than what's listed; these are only the guns that have either been asked for or I really wanted to bring them anyways.
One of the big reasons for getting a general sense of what's going to be at the shoot is so that I - and other attendees - know what to bring for ammo above and beyond that which will feed the guns we're bringing ourselves. Our patron saint of full auto (Wally) will (hopefully) be bringing a couple machine guns - one in .223, one in9mm (and possibly the .300 BLK) - so bring some decent brass-cased store brand ammo if you'd like to convert money into smoke and noise. There's always State Line Gun Shop right down the road if you want to grab more ammo, too.
A quick note about the Sooper Seekrit range: It's a 50 yard range, so any tricked out long distance rifles will not get a chance to stretch their legs any. You're more than welcome to bring them, of course; we'll be happy to fondle and drool over them like we did OldNFO's SCAR last year, but if you've got something that can circumsize a groundhog at 1,000 meters, it's not going to get a chance to prove it...
So, what's everyone else bringing of note?
That is all.
