Fifth Annual Northeast Bloggershoot AAR, Part 1 (Pics!)

As I've done in years past, I wanted to break up the Northeast Bloggershoot After Action Report into two separate parts, one with pictures and one with text. Figured folks like pictures better, so I'll post a baker's dozen of my favorite shots from the shoot. First off, of course, the guns:

Some of Wally's babies:

Some other gorgeous firearms brought for shootin'

THOTpolice's S&W 586

And, of course, we had the cannon to open things up:

Libertyman was kind enough to share a recent acquisition, a S&W 500 Magnum:
Yes, I wore a kilt to the blogshoot. Kilted to Kick Cancer *is* coming up you know...

Glenn B. and his son shooting AKs side-by-side. Love this shot.

We had a special guest! 2.5, actually!

Zercool brought the famous "Delicate Flower" AR.

Which I proceeded to get tactical with.

This bleeding terrorist zombie target from Zombie Industries was a lot of fun!
I'll have a full review up later this week...

Bubblehead Les demonstrates the proper way to shoot an AK-54.

THOTpolice threatens a stuffed toy with premature destuffulation.

The obligatory toy-bayoneting shot. This one's for jigsaw.

Man, I hope everyone else had as much fun as I did!

That is all.

And a fun time was had by all!
Thanks Jay, and special thanks to Mr & Mrs DoubleTrouble for hosting this every year. Now I have nothing to look forward to until the winter dinner.

Thank you Jay, it all happens because of your tireless efforts, and it is very much appreciated.

What an interesting group we have!

A delightful day, and the weather cooperated as well. (How did you arrange that?) Did you see the rainbow on the way home? Man, you're good Jay!

Wally said...

Well done! Thanks for putting this together! Always great to spend some time with the gang, especially when things are a little louder than usual!

Butch Cassidy said...

Someone did snap a good picture of Zercool puffing contemplatively on his pipe with the delicate flower in hand, correct?

Andie said...

Thanks to Jay, for emcee and coordination, Mr. & Mrs. Doubletrouble for hosting, and everyone else for great goodies and conversations! Look forward to seeing everyone again soon...!

Brendan and I had a great time. It was well worth the drives there and back. Brendan had a lot of fun and to think, he almost did not make it. He really liked setting off the cannon!

I got some decent pics that I posted on my blog with some fun captions. Recurring theme - man in skirt shooting yellow and pink rifle!

It was great meeting you and Jack, Debbie, Libertyman, Les, Brad and all the rest; I wish I could remember everyones names.

We hope to do it again next year. It was a blast, in more ways than one.

All the best,
Glenn B

By the way, nice pics. I just wish I had remembered to put my goggles back on. That shot is a good safety reminder. They kept fogging, better ones are getting ordered soon. My son's new shooting glasses from Smith Optics arrived yesterday. At least he will have a decent set.

All the best,

Glenn (and everyone),

I'm always glad to hear that folks had a good time; especially both new folks and folks who came from a significant distance (which fits you on both counts). It continues to amaze me that folks travel such distances to come play with us - but then again, that's our tribe.

As for shooting glasses, the shoot was the first time I had worn my new shooting glasses. I'll have a full review up on Thursday, but the WileyX eyewear worked GREAT for me.

You need some real roos there then you could have a bbq afterwards :)

BTW Jay, Miss 10 was looking at the pictures and when it got to the cannon she goes "OH YES!" with a big grin on her face. I think she's hooked.

Had a great time Jay and thanks to our Hosts for putting up with us for another year!
