2013 RBGC FAL match will be March 30th - FORMS ARE UP!

FORMS ARE HERE!

Yes I know the forms indicate entry fees are $10 for members and $15 for guests in one place and $20 in others. I will fix it tonight when I get home.

If you can't wait then mark up the form. THE CORRECT ENTRY FEE IS $10 FOR MEMBERS AND $15 FOR GUESTS.

It be only the bestest day with your rifel you can have. Stimpy devises a course of fire, which is fiendish. It will test you and your rifel. You have to move, you have to shoot (a bunch) and the clock is running.

Then, you're gonna' stand the line and paper punch 10 rounds each at a hundred standing, sitting and prone. While the guy to your left tries to put hot brass down your collar.

At my age, it's better than sex.

Then we pile up and have beer.

So, you gonna' get yer ass there?

ETA: If you're an old fart like me and have optics on yer' gun, you can shoot against me. Since 2006, I usually win my class.
Don't mean I'm all that good, just better then the other guys with scopes. Heh.

I just want to be there and get the Russian to say "Moose and Squirrel".

ETA: This stems from a Boorts show where an actual Russian national called in to comment. Very thick accent but also very well spoken. Boorts was inundated with Twitter posts to get the guy to say "Moose and Squirrel" on the air. He got the reference and it just tore his ass up. Belinda was clueless. She's too young.

He has already averred that he is not.

If he's lyin', he damn well better bring that hand-held minigun, so I can imitate Jesse Ventura in Predator.

He can pay for the ammo, too.

Yanno', you might actually be big enough to pull that off. Lord knows I'd never try. I've helped replace rivets in OH-58's that had those damn things. Was a long afternoon.

You'd make Jesse proud. Can you spit tobacco juice with any measure of accuracy?

ETA: Shootin' an obsolete quad Fifty mounted on the bed of a five ton truck got me going more than a 20 MM Vulcan. Can't really say why, but it did.

I recall that he dribbled mosta that stuff down his front. But I can handle that, long as it's my own.

I'm not a weak-minded per-rson.

No, in fact, he put a stream across a CIA dickhat's boot toe. Most eloquently, in an expectorating way.

Tell you something in confidence, I actually don't care how good I do. I just have the bestest time doing it. This crowd is big fun.

You're in for a treat. You'll see just about every variation of a FAL, beaters and beauties. You'll get to watch people who can actually shoot the hell out of the thing on a challenging course of fire. Then you get to get out in front and do it.

You get to stand up in a whole line of shooters and make God's own noise during the target stage. Three minutes, thirty rounds. Standing, sitting and prone. You'll probably get hit with hot brass in the head during this. Six seconds a shot, don't rush yourself just cause it sounds like the end of the world.

Bring stuff to swap or sell. Even better, bring something for a prize. Ima do that this year.

Jump in pasting targets and resetting steel. Ain't no strangers there and more hands make light work. DON'T paste no targets until they're scored!

Make some new friends. I have outta' this bunch and consider myself extremely fortunate.

Did I mention I kinda' like this little smoke fest Stimpy puts on?

That part ain't negotiable. It's the only rifel you can shoot in this. Stimpy designs the match to test the shooter AND the gun. If you don't have smoke coming off the barrel no way in hell are you going to place.

But, you can carry as many mags as you want during the action stage. No limit on shots at a particular target, steel or paper. The clock is still ticking, and is not your friend.

Reckon 35 mags will suffice?

LMAO damn 35 mags would kick my ass, I would have to wear my ole large ruck just to carry them.
6 is great, I have enough DSA pouches to cover that and carry on a battle vest.

You get bonus points for tacticool gear. Mostly cause we'll snigger at you. Stimpy is one of the hardest to beat and I think he carries his spare mags in a burlap sack tucked into his belt.

"Wardrobe" malfunctions while scurrying about are huge fun for everyone. Moses has one of his on video I believe. Straps flying off, hands flailing like a girl trying to slap down a wind blown skirt. Never lost muzzle control though.

Dunno mang - 6 mags has run short for some competitors some years. Everything else you say is spot on.

Put on all your gear, sprint 100yds while carrying your rifle pointing in a safe direction, and see what's still there. Keep doing that until it's all still there at the end, or you get tired and don't care any more. Bonus points if you stop and dry-fire in between sprints.

Then start practicing for the "Target" stage.

Or - just show up, stroll across the lawn with your mags in a backpack, and reload when you feel like it. You'll still have fun and meet great people.

I'll let you "borrow" my wheelchair, but you'll have to find somebody to push it. I got dibs on kotengu.

Come on out, no matter what your infirmity is. I guarantee you will have fun.

Most of us will carry around 8 to 10 mags in double pouches. 30 rounders will take you out of the "stock" class and put you into the open class. However, Stimpy's matches are devious enough to keep the 30's from being an advantage because he sets up the stages to make you have a reload just when you don't want to. Oh yeah, almost forgot to include the blank that is loaded into one of your mags to induce a malfunction drill. As if you won''t have plenty more.

Almost every year we have rifles that ran great for 364 days and disassemble during the match. I had my hand guards come off after the 5th shot. Let me tell you that barrel got plenty hot by the end of the course of fire.

Oh good, I was afraid you were going to bring up that time I came in second. The guy that came in next to last only beat me by a few points!

This post has me DOLMAO.

It is SO true.

stimpy's top 10 list of things that go wrong at FAL matches...

1. Stuff falls off of you
2. stuff falls off your rifle
3. gas set too low for ammo
4. rifle not clean or lubed jams during action section
5. not sighted for 100 yard zero
6. did not pay attention to discussion of zero-shift for close targets
7. brought the wrong ammo
8. did not recover from induced/encountered malfunction
9. parts break
10. nut behind trigger does not operate correctly in standing position

A few notes for n00bs and those that forget such things...
-yes, there will be steel that must be shot standing at about 100 yards
-yes, you WILL have at least one malfunction. The blank NEED NOT BE FIRED, and if you have a different malfunction rather than the one we planned for you, that counts, carry on!
-yes, if your rifle breaks or becomes inoperable during a stage YOU WILL NOT GET A RESHOOT. You CAN repair it and shoot the other stage. We are testing you AND your rifle.
-yes, one shooter at a time. Trust me you are not as annoyed about this as I am.
-yes, we will have the browning hi-power stage again this year, be sure to ask Shlomo any questions you have about these pistols, he loves them.

Well, I better add a box of bandaids on my things to bring list. That BHP hammer bites the heck out of the web of my hand. Love the way it shoots, just don't like it doing DNA samples on me.

The HiPower is what Browning did in the early stages of senility, and the final stages of testosterone ebb.

Just sayin'.

Hi-power stage is a side match where the shooter can shoot a Browning hi-power on a pistol stage.

It's great fun, and gives folks something to do while waiting to shoot the action stage.

Is it irony on purpose (like calling a bald guy "Curly") that they call that 9mm pistol a "hi power", or is there something else I'm missing?

Well, my boss okayed my vacation time so I will be there. Stimpy, as I posted earlier, I will be getting off work at 8 a.m. Friday morning and will have to take a nap before driving to Dawsonville. So, I will not be able to help out at the range on Friday like I normally do.

Just remember folks, that the Friday night BS and Food Fest will be held at the Ruby Tuesday's just of Ga 400 in Dawsonville. It is close to all of the hotels and just down the road from Stimpy's ranch. Happy hour is between 6 and 7 p.m. and the sit down meal can start as soon as we get a quorum. Just wear something FAL related so you can recognize and be recognized as an attendee. We will NOT be handing out "HI I"m" name tags at the door.

I will be there this year!!

Gosh, it was 2005 since I last attended.

I am trying to get some more people to come with me and shoot also.


Looking forward to seeing all you guys again.



The Other Bruce


PS - I thought I would let you guys know I sold my real accurate FAL several years ago and now have only a carbine that has acceptable accuracy for a FAL but not near as good as the other one.

Bruce, you gotta remember, we all know how you shoot, so selling you most accurate FAL isn't saying much.

Stimpy, I will be getting my paperwork and something for the prize table in the mail to you sometime this week. I have a few things that might make me change my schedule and cause me to miss this one. BUT, until they pop up, I will be making plans to be there.
