Hell. Right now, Stephen Hawking can outrun Shlomo, even without the chair.

Greetings all.
Happy new year and such.

I'll be there, barring civil war.
I will also be using a DIFFERENT fal this yr. No more "blank jams" for this gal.
I figure I have a couple of more yrs in my legs to get a bit closer to the top of the list, and REDEAM myself.
I hope this finds ya'll well and warm. I'm glad to be back home and looking forward to catching up with my fal brothers.

You would lose yer money. What makes Weyman tensor is when Weyman's wife finds a pair of panties in his truck.

He's been wearing women's underwear ever since.

I always heard that Milt was a drunken baseball pitcher, and it was the beer that made Milt Famie walk us.

Are we still doing the 10-10-10 thing at an SR-1 from 100yds, and an action portion for the second half? Or is it too early to tell, and you need more time to hatch your evil schemes?

It looks like I'm off of work on the 29th and that would enable me to drive down and get a hotel.

Barring civil unrest or insurrection, I'll try to make it, but no promises.

My wife just laughs at me when I tell her I want to drive 12 hours to go shoot.

She's a good woman, but just doesn't get it.

March 30 Huh.

Sounds like I need to get my leave paperwork in so I can make this one. Better start doubling up on my naproxin to get my surgically rehabilitated knee working fine. Unless somebody wants to be the designated driver for the after party and let me self medicate on some of Stimpy's private stock.

Thanks shlomo. I just submitted my leave request, hopefully to be approved. Won't be able to help at the range this year because I will be getting off to a late start to Dawsonville (working mid-shift on Thursday night). Gonna have to take a nap when I get there so I can make it to the Annual Pre Match Ruby Tuesday Food Fest and BS Session Friday night.

shlomo, I do have something for you so I will try to remember to bring it. I think you will enjoy it and I will sell it to you for cheap (name your price only after you've seen what it is). Just kidding. Since you gave me that Swiss stuff a while back, you can consider this payback.

Naw, see above. The job on the other hand is getting to be a... (fill in your expletive). We have a new schedule in place to reduce crime. We now have to work 11-15 weekends in a row. So, in order to enjoy a weekend off, we have to put in for leave. But it is funny that for the last two years they have been telling us that by working our original schedule we have reduced our crime stats by almost 50%. I guess "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" doesn't apply.

If you bring a wheelchair I'll push you through the course of fire while you shoot from the chair - we'll be like a tank team! Then I can use the wheelchair later that night when I've overmedicated at Stimpy's...

Great. But that would makes Stimpy's day harder. I think he looks forward to shlomo and I shooting so he can take a break and walk around instead of having to run after the shooter. But, on the other hand, it would make timing the event simpler since he could use his electronic timer instead of an hour glass.

Hey, now. Don't be makin' fun of the aged and moderately crippled. There was a time...

I look back with great pride that one of the participants commented on my run (back in '08, give or take a year) by saying he didn't think a guy that big could run that fast. I have not heard that very often in my life.

Are the good times really over for good?

Yessir, I sometimes can be spurred on to move rather quickly. Like the time early last year when a drugged up thug was popping 357 caps at me and a couple of LEO's. I passed one of my young studs while we were trying to take him down before he actually shot somebody. Felt good when my young speed demon said he couldn't believe I could move that fast. Especially since that was before the knee got worked on. But I can san say it took several days and about a half bottle of naproxen before I could move freely again.

And for the Monday morning quarterbacks, the background had children and we couldn't take the shot.

Stimpy, I've noticed the RBGC web site hasn't been updated with this years info/date. Do you have any idea when this will be updated?

People who have never been shot at don't realize exactly what that means. Standing downrange, and keeping your wits about you to the point of evaluating what's behind the shooter. I know it's part of YOUR job, Average Joe don't train like that.

I am trying to verify I can maintain T-shirt pricing the same as last year.

After that I will check the budget and post new forms.

Should be up later this week.

I have a question for all my shooters.

Would you prefer to...

1. have the same match fee as in years past $20 and possibly shoot a few more steel plates.

or

2. have the match fee stay $20 and have some better prizes and trophies

or

3. drop the match fee and do things more or less like we have been doing them.

The reason I ask is that the board has finally dropped the 40% take requirement for matches. This means I can charge what I want and the club merely takes what is LEFT after expenses, rather than 40% off the top and then whatever is left after expenses. This would potentially allow me to buy additional AR500 targets every year on the match budget.

I realize ammunition is not cheap, and this match eats it like candy, so rather than just assume everyone would want more targets, I thought I would poll the audience. It's ya'lls match as much as it is mine.

While I like to shoot a lot, the one day match format puts a limit on the number of shooters versus the number of targets formula.

I don't mind "donating" a $20 match fee for a fun match. If the funds are made available to you for "upkeep" then buying new steel to replace the old steel and other props, I say use it.

I don't like the idea of using the match money to purchase prizes to be handed out to the winners. However, prizes purchased to be handed out from a random drawing (similar to door prizes) so everyone has the same chance of winning could be a good thing.

And last but not least, I would like to keep the match fee in place because I feel that it keeps the troublemakers out of the match. But, I have no problem for the match director to waive payment of fees for shooters on a case by case basis. And no need for this decision to be made public.

Thanks Tac!

Others? You wouldn't think you'd have to ask twice around here for opinions!

You know me--I like a lot of prone, and movement from cover to cover. Not so much standing in one spot and endlessly shooting dozens of targets from off my hind legs.

This. Is. Pure. Gold.




I like some of each - but I'm with the Shlom: more prone & cover than standing pretending that I'd be bulletproof. I may not have been around for it, but have some of the 'movement' pieces had run-n-gun (shooting while moving) in them in the past? We did one "Soldier of Fortune" run and gun event at the Oregon shoot once, and it was very well received.

"Like we have been doing them" has been pretty darn good, so I wouldn't hesitate to do more of the same. A $20 match fee is more than reasonable for what we already do. Whether you spend it on more steel, more trophies, more booze, or pocket the difference for all the trouble you go to in order to put this match on makes no difference to me.

Second all of the above.

You might want change that "Entry Fee" part - it still says $10/member, $15/non-member. It says $20 down below though (correctly?).

Is the 150-200rd number an estimate of how many shots it will take, or how many targets there will be? I just finished the big pistol match/classifier I've been putting all my energy into lately - now it's time to start FAL match practice!

I fixed the form.

Yes, the ammo count is still a good estimate.

It is looking more and more like we may be using the same steel we have before. I am still testing various reactive target designs, the best ones are production intensive.
