guys will laugh at me. Since we need a rifle with irons, nothing better
than a Garand. Looks like a I need a bolt gun, so I'll toss in a Vz-24.

Suppressors? SBR's?

What am I missing?

I'm bringing an M16 and an AK

I'm sorry to say gents, but I won't be able to make it this year. I'm finally back in the free world, yet again so long as I work, I'm not truly free.

Carl - too bad, man. Hopefully you can make the grand reappearance next year.

Mike! Work travel killing your mojo? I was hoping you'd get out here. But next summer is only 12.5 months away...

Well, with the recent uptick in opium prices, the mercenary trade is pretty lucrative now in the far east, and grandma is wanting a new 10-22 sniper rifle so......

"Probably"? The Fall shoot is an Institution now. We just don't have a date set yet. Should have that figured out next month.

Gaddammit... It's looking like agriculture is going to keep me from making it down there. Hay cutting starts next Tuesday and I have another truck engine to rebuild... and a set of semi trailers to rewire and........ See you guys in the fall.

Unfortunately I won't be there. Due to the way the holidays fell this year, this term started a week late. Because of that the shoot is the weekend before finals instead of after so I still have classes

Ya gotta make hay when the sun shines brother, both literally and figuratively.

On the literal part, we did get a good little cut of horse hay in already.
Cow hay cutting will start soon if the fluxing rain ever stops

We cut 1400 acres of "cow hay" for export, then 600 acres of timothy "horse hay"for export. All done with New Holland 3'x4' big balers. But I do have a baler guy that can save me some sleepless nights. Up here we bale at night when the dew comes in. It can be 10 pm one night or 2 am the next. I just tell them, "Don't call me unless it breaks in half."
This afternoon we started planting 400 acres of dry beans for fall harvest mostly Pintos and Reds with some Blacks too.

Yeah, it's kind of mindblowing for me at the moment, we have John Deere tractors with infinitely variable transmissions that are in communication with the baler via data link and the baler sensors control he tractor speed and rpm to make an optimum bale. Far cry from when I was a kid on the old 656 Farmall pulling a 2 string baler. Gonna take a bit for me to fit in to this.

You're cutting hay, and we just had a 45 load steel order proceed to the rolling mill hoping my loads take a while and have to go through heat treat, otherwise they'll release mid next week and have to be hauled out ASAP. Fingers are crossed.
