Actually, thank you for the entertainment. Watching those big smiles on the gals faces was priceless.

The biggest problem with religion is those who claim to know Jesus, then turn around and deny Him with their lifestyle. That is what a unbelieving world, simply finds unbelievable.

Before you die, you should have a will with extra copies. The old saying "No one will screw you faster than family" is bloody well true.

If you'd been able to make it over, you'd been able to witness the winner of the hurling competition. It was Epic!

Hey guys, I just wanted to thank you all for allowing me to join you briefly on Friday. While I'm bummed I wasn't able to stay and hang out with y'all more, hopefully I will be able to make the OR shoot and the next WA shoot. For those of you I actually got to talk to, it was a pleasure meeting you! I'm looking forward to next time!

It was great to see everyone after a year hiatus!
CoffeeVixen, thank you yet again for keeping everyone fed, coffee'd up, and on the right track! For all the folks that hosted this (Rob, Brush5.11, Jim, etc.) thanks sooooo much!!! For all the folks that worked so hard to set up the steel and get things up and running, thanks!!!! Thanks to 4x401 for being the official timer and general badass to keep us safe and our heads in the right direction. Thanks to Brother Wayne for yet again the awesome spectacle of launching an anvil, a couple times. That just never gets old . And he is so ready to share his power of black powder knowledge goodness .
Tuscanraider, someday you gotta share with me your secret to your energy. I need to bleed some off you dude!
Yet again Milsurpmonkey brought out his cool off the wall stuff. Both vintage and black powder. Thank you for letting so many people fondle and shoot your cool stuff.
I'm sure I'm forgetting someone but be assured it was great to see and talk to you all!
All the folks are so cool and welcoming. I cannot wait for the fall gathering of miscreants!

PICS, PICS, PICS!!

The lady in charge!
Many thanks to Dawn for keeping score, taking pics, and making Sunday breakfast! ..



And all the miscreants in attendance, many hearts are broken on the Drop 15...













My old friend Paul cleared the course, and with a poodle pooper! He's only been shooting since January of this year..








We missed our Brit Hack...








The infamous TEAM SHOOT!!







My old friend Pauls wife Helen, absolutely slaying the 200 yrd. team shoot targets!! Only been shooting since January as well! You go girl!







Unfortunately, there weren't any pictures of the other assorted shenanigans like cannon fire, anvil launching, etc...

But as always, a great time away shooting, eating, and imbibing with great folks.

Sorry I missed this. Looks like a typically great group of people and fun event.

It was fun trying to dope the wind, and it always seemed to die off between events, though I'm sure your A-Team would've had no problems with it.
You missed a good enough time Jeff, wasn't the same without your brand of humor.

Im glad you guys had a good time. Sorry the weather wasnt a little better and Id like to apologize for forgetting the FEH signs. The weather today and yesterday were great. Got my farm work caught up and got home in time to take my grandson for a walk. Hes 9 months old and a little chunk. We were going to hike about a mile but grandpa cut it short to about 1/2 a mile. 20+lbs. was more than enough for my knees. Currently grilling some pork chops with a little Texas style Rub and some homemade Asian style plum grilling sauce and a wee dram of Dalwhinnie for the cook.

Please. Never. Apologize... for the weather. I've been there for worse.

It wasn't that bad, and we all had a great time. Just having access to the venue you provide is a privilege we ALL appreciate, believe me.

The wind was a minor irritation compared to times of no grass on the ground. It at least keeps the bloody dust down some. Besides, it makes the longer ranges more of a challenge. Did anyone else get burned by the sun to the point of having lizard skin? I haven't been able to shave for days.

I was definitely cooked a bit...my recent haircut didn't help the situation either.

Wind, rain, freezing temps, and blazing sunshine...just another wonderful extended weekend at Brush511's shooting paradise!
