The only other 5th weekend is in June, we did that once and it sucked.

Every year I make someone unhappy.

Many thanks for hosting this excellent event. I've missed the last two due to work but it'll happen this time. Have you already decided on the T-shirts?

I have a while before I need to do shirts.

Any special requests?

I am actually dealing with the Run-and-Gun at RBGC planning right now.

I was getting really nervous, thinking I'd missed it this year. A fall time slot will be interesting.

Not at all!!! I know it was a Whiskey induced quote last weekend, but after those words left your mouth, I haven't laughed that hard in such a long time. My gut hurt!

Unless you can Photoshop Blondzilla, or B17, or one of Martin's redheads into the foreground, I'm thinking I will pass on the 2018 RBGC shoot shirt this year

A challenger rises!

Danie, would you be OK with me using that for T-shirt art?

I sense a vote forthcoming.

Actually that was a blatant lie, but the guy does look a lot like I did back then. I stole the photo off the Facebook Fal page.

Oh yeah, round count? 80 (action part) + 30 (high power part) = 110 rds is the minimum?

I have shot about 100 in the action stage in the past, and of course 30 is exact for the target stage, but don't forget the drop-8 "fun stage" at the end of the day if we get done and have time. I would suggest 200 rounds is a much better plan. Knowing you, 110 might do it for YOU tho

Also, you said "high power part" which by context I think you meant the "target stage". Don't forget the Browning Hi-Power pistol side match in your packing

We once had a stage with 80 pieces of steel to knock down.

I'm better now...

Donít worry young lady, I donít have one either. I did pick one up on familiar dirt road in Mordor a couple of years back. Carried it for a bit on that quest. Damn thing was heavy, so I gave it to some Orcs guarding an outpost.

Hahahaha! Never miss a chance to remind him of that. ;-)

There usually are a few HPs around you can borrow and shoot for the cost of ammo. IIRC, the owners generally prefer to supply the ammonand trade you for cash so they know some doofus with a double-charge won't ruin their pistols.

Will that be true again this year, Bruce Almighty?

Will, the gentleman who organizes the HP side match, will have a loaner HP on site.

As a reminder, the stage will also make use of a machinegun, also Will's.

Well, seeing youíre asking Matt and Brunop, I did save the target.

Itís a solid 252, but really, it wouldnít make any difference at all in the outcome-heck-I even walked away with one of the two cans of 7.62X51 that were the top prizes!

Seriously, I absolutely accept the results.

That makes much more sense - the target portion has always been your strength. Well done!!!

For clarity. It didn't get SCORED right or it ddn't get ENTERED right?

You may not know...I can at least check the score sheet.

Yeah - that's what I thought. I didn't get a chance to look / score it, but I saw that group and told Jonathan that it was about 1.5" away from being ~280. I told him I thought it was going to be high 250s.

Unrelated to everything: I've been out of town so just got a chance to clean the FAL tonight. I've forgotten how easy it is to clean when in its original iron sight configuration. The design is genius in its simplicity.

I'm sorry I ever strayed, my lady - you are amazing!
