Mock-up is temporarily interupted by a visit from my friend "Jack". It may be 9 AM here, but according to my buddy Jimmy Buffet, "It`s 12 O`clock somewhere".


Getting closer.......




Almost there, just need to add some lateral bracing, and a remote re-setter.




I need to hit the scrap steel place Monday afternoon for a 5ft. chunk of 2"x2"x1/4" to complete the other 5 plate rack, got the rest of it fabbed and ready to weld.

I may be building the "Fal fest" steel transport trailer sooner than expected.
Fukin' A Ray, tits on a Ritz. Those look awesome.

And its "5 o clock Somewhere." is the JB tune.

PS: If you can Rich... a piece along the entire front that is maybe 4" wide and at a 45 degree angle to deflect low hits would help preserve your horizontal piece that holds the plates. guys
seem to always miss low.....

Copy that T.

Yea, I`m definately aware of the "always miss low" guys.(I`m one of `em).I`ll check the scrap pile and see what I can do.

I`ll be bringing (2) 5 plate racks over, so don`t sweat bringing any more unless you think ya need to.

We paint our target circles black with a white sheet of the flasher material
behind it. Makes it easier to see the target.

Speaking of pistol stages/events.....

We are planning to shoot pistol on Friday? Rifle on Saturday?
If so then how many guys are going to be available to shoot pistol
on friday? Can you chime in please?

I am looking into event ideas. But I kinda settled on a little mini 3 stage
match that would introduce guys to the different kinds of pistol matches??

Cool? Thoughts? Ideas?

I musta missed the Outlaw smacking. Please refer me to his comments, I`d like to read them.

Personaly, I thought VonFireBall`s "critic" of LAV`s Fal vid was spot on. I noted many of the same inaccuracies VFB did. I just wrote them off to Mr. V needing to sound like he knows the Fal. Obviously he doesn`t. But hey, it`s his show, he can do/say whatever he likes even if its wrong. 95% of the couch Ninja`s watching won`t know or care anyway.

His going the way of "Pound your opinions up your asses", was exactly how I predicted the thread would go. My world is truly centered.

This is the "18-rounds in your FAL mags" thread that started all the drama. In Post 54 Outlaw Patriot tells LAV that he "...sure is sensitive...".

Post 55 I tell O.P. that he's a hippie, and that there are people that will beat your ass if you call them a liar, and that he should learn the difference.

While I'm right, it appears that Outlaw Patriot was, too.

I think I'll go ahead and subscribe to LAV's combat TV offering. Not. That was a weird outburst. I'm surprised that a guy with that resume can't somehow let it all roll off like water off a duck's back. If you've been there and done that, do you really have to act like your panties got bunched by some internet chat commandos?

Another Oregonian, jefferyc22, has AR500 1/2" targets for sale.

http://www.falfiles.com/forums/showthread.php?t=329243

I would be willing to throw extra coin for long term steel investment for
the annual shoot. If this isn't a good price, then disregard.

That is a good price for sure.

I wonder if I'm going to ever get my steel from the Mother Of All Group Buys On Steel Targets that that one guy was advertising here and on Snipers Hide. I know I was one of the last purchasers, and I know some of the early guys got their steel. I hope it is before June 22nd...

I never pictured you as someone to throw their money away in hopes of a good return

THROW YOUR MONEY AT ME BITCHEZ!

I`ll build the stuff for cost, AND...... Because I like contributing to the cause!

I`ll look into a local AR-500 source to see what this stuff "Really" costs.

I think we need one of those revolving plate wheels!

I don't think there would be alot of shootin' the next morning, except
projectiles from the gut.

A full keg of Bud going up wouldn't bother me a bit.

I don`t get cable or sat tv.

And there's no better bitch I could think of to throw my money at

Thats right, there ain`t!! I figured to settle on using 1/2", unless there are substaintal cost diff`s between the 2.

If anyone can find a couple free or really cheap empty beer kegs
grab them up please. I will reimburse.

They really still put beer in those?

Jeff is a good guy. He's an armorer in my old National Guard unit, and I've been trying to talk him into attending the FAL shoot for the last couple of years.

I can vouch for his character.

I ordered some, also late. It came the end of last week. Shipped via USPS in flat rate boxes. Very heavy! The postal delivery "gal" was not happy. She would not carry it in from the truck.

BTW, these targets can also be available for the shoot. Just need to know if they are needed!
Have:
(4) 8" - 1/2" rounds
(2) 12" - 1/2" rounds
ISPC Torso targets:
(2) 25%-1/2"
(2) 40%-3/8"
(2) 66%-3/8"

There is some more smaller stuff coming.

Hey 4x401,

I've got some pieces of used grader blade which might work for a protective barrier. Only problem is that it gets pretty heavy since it's at least 1/2".
If you want to experiment with some, let me know.

Thanks for the offer. I think you told me about that stuff last year and I forgot. Do you happen to know the dimensions of the pieces you have? I may be able to use them in another way.

As far as the plate racks go, I think I`ve got some 1/4" plate to try first. Trying to stay as light as possible, these things are already heavy enough. My poor truck`s gona have quite a load to haul over this year, especialy with the family coming.

I called a guy about some bowling pins. IIRC, he said a buck a piece.

No joy on my end. Had the wrong "Walt'"

Still have time to find him, it's a small town.

I think I was the one that suggested the pins to begin with...and now I'm planning on riding the bike to the shoot, which makes what I'm about to say pretty lame....If someone brought 4 sawhorses and a couple 4x8 sheets of plywood, we could have a PROPER pin match. I can't do the hauling, but I'll throw some $'s towards the plywood/pins.

Calm down...CALM DOWN Troy.....I'm not trying to worm my way into the handgun match planning...just suggesting a fun "side event" to the competition you're planning and, barring you showing up with yet ANOTHER techno-crutch........will be LOSING!

Thanks Ron....now all we need are 4 sawhorsies and 10 or 12 pins and we'll be set.

(I think I better order some 9mm ASAP)

How's the back BTW?

I am looking into event ideas. But I kinda settled on a little mini 3 stage
match that would introduce guys to the different kinds of pistol matches??

Cool? Thoughts? Ideas?

Thanks Otis! I have not heard from anyone else really, but just wanted to make sure guys could be there friday to shoot. Too much stuff to try and do rifle and pistol on same day. Plus its fun to watch guys shoot. I will post my thoughts on intro pistol stages before we go. Maybe Brunop could make a list of pistol shooters to go along with our rifle shooter classes??

And if Pluskat wants to bring pins as a side/fun deal that sounds cool to me!

That's it? Well...if you're gonna be all grownup, I'll stop the smacktalk and just stick to putting you away on the day of.

(I still say maturity, class and civility are overrated....and the rest of you are getting OLD)

Happy B-Day my friend.

Hey, can you send me those 55 grainers? I don't want to be shooting
your guys' steel with SS109's. PM follows.

I will be there Thursday afternoon with a small posse. More than likely
3 people from my group will be shootin pistol. If we are allowed to be the
first we can set up some MG's so people can filter over when done with
the pistol stuff.

Cool dude! Thanks for letting me know. I got vacation 18 JUN until 27 JUN. So I may go over early. What is the dirt like there? Can I run stakes in the ground or is it too soft?? I can't remember....

My group will be there Thursday. I think there will be a significant percentage who will be there to shoot pistols on Friday, Tat2.

Ground is soft enough that you can put stake in with your hand. Won't hold much - including my tent last year...

Ok cool. Thats what I thought I remembered about the dirt there. I am
trying to look into set up for a small IPSC stage w/ walls. I will try and
and use other ways to do it without stakes.

Happy Birthday, 4x401!

Now we know why the Pluskat posts make you pee a little. Like he said, Depends are your friend.
