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

Every year I make someone unhappy.

Oh, just FYI.

2018 action stage will be the helicopter BHD stage again.

Be prepared to reset steel targets...as many as I can fit.

Well, hmmmmmmmm.

1. 5th Group 9/11 memorial.
2. Pecos RnG.
3. RBGC FAL match.

Not an easy choice.

It will either be a lot of driving.

Or something will have to give.

It is a good problem to have - so many cool matches you can't attend them all!

Agreed.

Although I suspect the FAL match will feel pretty tame after I am done with the RnG.

Oh I didn't say I wasn't coming.

I'm just going to be adding a 4.5 hour driving leg to our trip, because I sure AF ain't missing this. Especially since surely my L1A1 will be done by then!!! Here's the teaser pics I was sent the other day. Hnnnnnggggggggggg

I'm not sure why that's in there. It's Mark (gunplumbr), I've seen him give people shit for using metric mags in inch (even though they are supposed to fit albeit the notch doesn't seat as much or something?) maybe it was just for the pic or something.

LOL. I got the wood from yellowhand, up close it's got just the right amount of dings/wear. The action/barrel etc is all re-coated though, I agree, too pretty

My FAL has an inch receiver, and it is true that metric mags will fit and function.

They're just a little sloppy in there so I don't use them for matches unless I have to.

Dammit, I always thought if anyone could it would be you, so please make your best attempt to do so bro

I know it is a challenge for you to get this in the schedule and truly appreciate the effort. I'll take what dates we can get with no complaints, but September is always a really busy month for me work-wise. I will certainly be there if at all possible and will do what I can for "planet alignment" efforts on this side.

It's on my calendar Bruce
