Eclipse shoot. Revised!!!

Aug 21st Warrenton Mo. 1:15 pm to 1:17 pm

2 min of shooting glow in the dark clays during the total eclipse.

Bring a shotty and a few rounds, of either shot shells or favorite adult beverage. (adult beverages must be consumed after shooting stops.)

Festivities will start around 11 am, and end sometime after 3 pm.

37 mm flares also welcomed, along with a adult lawn dart competition.

Full auto (machineguns) and rapid fire is encouraged.

LW G will be available to shoot gently,



along with the HK21, and going to zero a LUX FN49 sniper.

You only live once.

Need a volunteer to shoot 500 rounds through the MCR upper to get it broken in. Ammo will be supplied.

Weird Things Happen with a Total Solar Eclipse
Everyone talks about how visually stunning it is when the darkened Moon fully covers the face of the Sun in a total solar eclipse. And indeed, it is! But there are other unusual, truly strange happenings that occur when the Moon passes in front of the Sun. If you arenít prepared to look for them, some of these weird phenomena are so fleeting that you can miss them. Following are descriptions of a number of those novel occurrences to be looked for on August 21st.

Revised. Do not plan to travel on the 21st. You can arrive Sunday and hook up your camper to 110v or limited sleeping inside at the location 3 people.

You are free to pitch a tent and rough it.

Me and Blondzilla will drive over that morning, shoot most of the day, and drink all night. We will stay in the nearest Motel 6 or just roll up in a blanket, tucked up under the open tailgate in case it rains.

That's how we roll and I've seen us do it

You had better have your dang lawn darts zeroed in too if you want to win the door prize

Would a rookie new comer be welcome?

I was just thinking how I needed to do something shooting related for this.

I could contribute a flashy 11" FAL and a semi RPD along with a few other fun things

You are welcome to come, but Evansville is right in the path of the total eclipse.

Okay Safn49, I'm about 75% sure I'll be there. Mrs.ss is still trying to to make it work, but just came off vacation not too long ago and co-worker is looking to take some time off. We should know more by Friday.
Really want to make it happen so we can have face time with You and Invictus 77 and
Mrs.Safn49 and Mrs.I77.~ss

Negative on shooting AR's at glow in the dark clay pigeons as they are launched from the thrower. She will have to use a shottie to shoot at glow in the dark clay birds as they are launched like the rest of us mere mortals.

and buy her a FAL, not a poodle shooter.

Will you have a good 100 yd range set-up on Monday?

WEG challenge?

Sure will, but you can't use the 7 yard to 100 yard rifle/pistol range and the trap range at the same time. The 100 yard range crosses and is perpendicular to the middle trap range. Trap range doubles as the adult lawn dart range.

I'm pretty certain we cannot in the 2 1/2 minutes of darkness:

Shoot the WEG challenge, adult lawn darts, glow-in-the-dark clay pigeons, and any 7 yard pistol shooting simultaneously bro. Me thinks you misunderstood the question but it is all good. That was not what I was suggesting.

It is all good and we WILL work out the details and we WILL be safe in everything we do I am certain. It is all good.

Thank you for hosting

You would be surprised at what you can do in 2 1/2 min in the dark
