Back home, safe and sound. Just want to shout out thanks to everybody for another excellent event! Dave, for being a great host and generally good egg. Rob, Dawn, Rich and Jason for running another great set of events and Terry and Robin for the pistol clinic.

Awesome weekend, look forward to the next one!

I talked to my sister in law this afternoon, Brother Wayne got home late yesterday afternoon. He wasnt having a very good day today. He's having problems with his pain meds interferring with his sleep. Basicly he's stoned and the haluciations are waking him up. She's going to try to get a change in his meds. They fused 5 vertibrae in the lumbar area of his back.

I'm sorry to hear that Dave. Please extend our thoughts to Brother Wayne for a speedy recovery!
JohnnyP, Coffee Vixen has lots of video of you and others Friday night...

Another thanks to you Brush 511 and Jim, and 12v71 for all the work to put this on.
A special thanks yet again to Coffee Vixen! You just plain rock with all the wonderful food and herding us around all weekend. Keep us posted. You know what I'm talking about.
Pat, we'll get 'em next year! Don't give up faith!
Jason and Rich, another year of your hard work has paid off!

Soooooo many people make this such a great event. It truly is like a family. A dysfunctional family to be sure, but an awesome dysfunctional family!

It was great that Countershot was able to fly in!

Met some new folks too and they were all great!
It was great to see 4x401's better half there. And she is a heckuva shot .

Unless you're there you just cannot understand what a great bunch of folks that put on and come to these events.
Definitely looking forward to the next event

Some of you that left early missed "The Faux Fire Scare of 2018"

Edit: almost forgot. Brother Wayne is unto himself with black powder cannon and anvil launchings but you and Boyle did justice to him. On both launchings! They were awesome and you guys should be proud! Just don't tell him about the tape measure and flashlight level

Give him our best regards. A few doses of that single malt would be my sound medical advice...
Srsly, sorry to hear he's been through the ringer, give him mine and Tommy's love.

Thanks to all those who make this event happen twice a year, we all know who they are . How C.V. tolerates such a group of wankers is beyond comprehension, but I doubt things would run as smoothly, if at all, without her herding abilities.
I have a couple pics of the conditions all endured, when the pics thrad goes up, I'll contribute them at that time.
Hope to see you all again soon, and prayers up for Brother Wayne.

Of this you can be sure. I'll be looking to move my little DAO 9X19 on, and go back to a M-1911 A-1, should've never sold mine. Thanks for the eye opener Terry, I learned something to be sure.
