A couple moved away but still come back to visit (me). A couple passed on to where they can't come back to visit any more.

The big gathering is the annual FAL Match at RiverBend Gun Club in Dawsonville.

What was your old screen name? Welcome back!

I wish.


Now I am managing the club...not half as fun and twice as much pain.

But I will find the time to go shoot with you if you wish.

Unless you mean the FAL match...I still run that one.

Nice to see some members in the thread!

Love living in northern GA. Will definitely have to check out RBGC. When would be a good time to take a look at it Stimpson?

I've always wanted to get to this. maybe this year could be the year. I'd need to find a few mags, though. I only have 4 or 5.

I just arrived in Georgia last year.

If I can get in some good practice before next year, maybe I can make it to the match - it's not too far a drive for me.

Are there any details of what is involved in the match?

Is it for iron sights only or do you need optics to have any chance?

Thanks!

I've never done anything other than basic 'sitting at the bench' shooting.

The course looks challenging.

If I run out of ammo due to my ineptitude, can I fix a bayonet and stab the targets as a last resort?

I'll let you stab one of them, just for the amusement...but you're taking FTE/mikes for the rest.

Did you check Clydes??

I was at Franklins a couple weeks ago ( they had an old G3 they may deal on ) but no one there has any real knowledge of FALs. Hell iknow more than they do and have only been reading about them for a couple months.

There aren't any smiths down my way ( McDonough) that I could recommend.

I haven't bought there in a long time. I will stop by once in a while yo.look at the selection but we dont buy. He was very rude to my father and I a few years back and we haven't traded with him since. Funny thing is he was rude to us because we were talking to one of his employees who we had become friends with. I don't know if he thought shooting and talking with us was detrimental to the business or if he is just an ass.

Either way I'm with ya.

You probably don't.

But if you want to bring the rifle by we can certainly verify a spare bolt that maintains proper headspace for your rifle.

In my experience FAL bolts do not vary enough to make a rifle unsafe unless they are wildly out of spec.

Is the rifle properly headspaced using the currently installed bolt?

IM me if you wish to proceed.
