Oh! I think we chatted up the hill before the VTAC stage. At least, I don't remember seeing any other enfields out there that day. Welcome (back) to the site.

I'll run the 20K in January.


I'm running the first 10K with an AR, and I'll run the second 10K with an FAL.


I know that that is backwards, so I won't officially be in the FAL Retard Challenge. But I can live with that. I will, however, be bummed to be *increasing* the load-out for the second run rather than lightening the load.

But to quote Matt, I've got a strategy...

Well, if no one throws down the gauntlet.

I'll be running the FAL then an AR.

At least that's the plan.

You'll still be in the running for the "Cockfighter of the free world" award.

Can you retain your title?

I hope so!

Is this a traveling trophy, where I need to bring the patch in case I have to relinquish it to the victor? Or is my Year 1 patch safe on my hat?

I think as long as what you are doing is pointless and painful, Al will be OK with it.

Yup. That was me. Tall dork with an Enfield.

Thanks!

So far we're having a conversation among filers.

We don't know yet what Al has in store.

Confused yet?

I hadn't thought about it.

I'll throw it out there for discussion among the filers.

What's the reigning title holder say?

I'll bring the patch. If someone can take it, they can have it.

Different every iteration from what I have seen and this next time it will be something like running the second 10k with an UZI and a Trench-gun with bayonet attached!

...I know, he is watching
