Let me get this straight for the drop 12 match....

(12) 762 boolits at 55 cents each is $6.60

(24) 556 boolits at 28 cents each is $6.72

So if just shoot the drop-12 targets with my 12 FAL boolits, I will get almost a 2% return on investment on my cash outlay over shooting the poodle shooter?

Heck yeah! I'm shootin' an FAL just to save expenses!

I have my 12 boolits packed and ready in my shaving kit

I will have a 6 pack of Sam Adams with me. If you drop 15 with only 15, I will give you that 6 pack. I didn't say they would still be full.

I would never do that to Rich. He might lower his blue cup, take a look at me, and notice that I'm not as good looking as I think I am.

No farting around the camp fire? You PNW guys need to publish a rule book.

I suspect my 2018 invitation might get "lost in the mail"

Farting around the fire is OK. Just don't be sitting next to 4x401 when you do it.

The rules are imparted more by gestures and one syllable sounds than by the written word.

Hmmm, I can think of no reproach or social insult
in which 4x401 would waste a blue cup.

Did you not offer him beans around the camp fire?

Was that when JonnyP and I were comparing single malts or was that Sept. 2016 or 2015? It's all such a blur.

Been out twiddling with "Dodgy", my old beast motorhome. Got hot water and Central air HEAT working. All pretty amazing for a cheap '76 model. Roof air works too when I run the genny. I kinda like this concept.

Now it has me thinking of upgrading already. Seen quite a few nice big ones lately for decent prices. I'm only into this one for 2K plus new tires.

I miss my old beater '76 Champion. Finally got rid of it because the coach was literally falling apart. Sure beats a tent

Yeah... I got a bit of rot at the bottom of the wall skirts, but at the floor line and above it's good and solid. I do need to replace 2 roof vents, but duct tape works for now. Since it has the Dodge Van cab, I could just turn it into a welding rig if the camper section goes bad.

PICS!!!

I'm tempting myself with the idea of a smaller motorhome. Seems a camper and truck add up to more than you have to pay for a smaller motorhome.

I need smaller for launching a small boat and turning it around at my house.

Yeah, but small is beautiful. Bigger = more cost, maintenance, prep time etc. The payback isn't always there. If I had my druthers, I'd chop in the Jeep and motorhome for a full size diesel and cabover camper. The missus disagrees, therefore we keep the RV

I just perused the OP to see who was coming and noticed Sunday morning will be the Milsurpmonkey's "Ginger Fifth Challenge" long range event.

My schedule has changed and I no longer have to leave out at "O dark thirty" for the airport on Sunday morning, so tell me about the Ginger Fifth Challenge???

Does it involve a redhead and a fifth of bourbon?

PS - I was still hoping but now it is official, Blondzilla will not make this trip with me

1 popper at 200 yards with a single shot

Weapon must not have been fired on Sunday

Iron sight only is non negotiable

Shot is to be taken from a bare bench, with no aids other than the bench itself, and your own limbs (no bags, no slings, no bipods, no sleds, just a bare bench, you, and your weapon)

Popper must fall for shooter to advance

All shooters falling the popper advance to the clay pigeon shootout. Rules for shootout are as follows

Clay pigeons at 100 yards using same weapon as the 200 yard shot

Each shooter will have 1 pigeon to hit, and 1 shot to hit it with

Missed birds are eliminated shooters

Birds will be reset each round

Last shooter standing wins the Ginger Fifth

Dang it. I was just planning to bring the 15 boolits for the "Drop 15" match. Now I suppose I will need the whole box of 20

If the Ginger Challenge goes long, would one of you guys trade me a couple extra boolits for whatever leftover beer I have from Saturday ?


PS - That may have been the funniest post I ever made here.
I really said "leftover beer". That is some funny chit right there

No worries, I've shot with this bunch before, there'll be plenty early eliminations on Sunday morning. That Saturday night fireside chat will really bugger your brain.

It's the smoke from the fire that causes the fogginess on Sunday.

Must be that "liquid smoke" stuff, for that smoky flavour you know.
