Possible DFW shoot in the future.

Hello everyone. Things are getting kind of back to normal at the river and I talked to the owner today and got the OK for another shoot. This is just a preliminary heads up to all to check back later for news.

We are not talking about September or October. Maybe Nov, Dec, or Jan. We'll see what happens.

I'll post a new thread for the actual shoot if it turns into a go.

James

Hey, James! Glad to see you around here.


And since I'm doing business in DFW these days, I'd love to crash this party if it works with my travel schedule. I'd also like to get a picture with Ol' Dirty if that is a possibility. Your rifle and your review of it is how I decided to buy my first FAL instead of getting the G3/HK91 I was looking for.


Meaning, "This is ALL your fault!"

You would not regret it. That was the most fun I've had in decades. It's too bad it's going to be cold. I would liked to have camped out and had adult sodas with the group.

Yep, wish we could have all hung out afterwards. But it was a cold mofo that morning and later in the evening. Not used to being that far north during the winter.

Has a day been set yet? As usual, I'll stagger my story ass out there bringing homemade libation.

Got my key a couple weeks ago... Just drove through Jacksonville today and thought of those guys in the "bowling alley" as I drove by on 69. Hope they are doing well.

Count me in if I am not out of town...

PS - I am going to bring my AK that I can bump with my finger. I hope the ATF doesn't make me register my finger... (and yes it is the middle one I use... )
