WOW ! Awesome list of attendees.
Many names I have seen on the files.
Would love to meet and greet everyone.

Sadly I have a conflict with a family obligation which may take the entire week+.
There is a slight possibility I can get out of it but slim.
Put me on the "maybe list".

PS, I have a revolver. :-)

Ken!!

We would love to see you, and I miss your attendance at this shindig.


Duly added with the hopes you can sneak out for a day or two.

I wouldn’t worry about that.

There are other things to fret over. 😉

We are bringing the Cruise Monster motor home... So, being snobs and special and all that, We would like to have a spot on hardpack down in the middle kind of reserved for us. Maybe off the right fork headed north where Jeff parked last year? Might save a huge tow bill.

You can have our spot - no problem at all.

We usually get there through an 'S' turn between the trees that I wonder if you can negotiate in the Cruise Monster. The guys in motor homes have usually been closer to the 'center' - by 4x401 & sportsnut - where the road is harder.

But I don't care either way. C'mon down!!

If there is enough interest, I would like to do
a night shoot with pistol lights.

We'll play it when we get there Thursday morning. If anybody scouts it out that would be cool.

And who were you thinking of? I have a couple in .22lr, .38 special 5 shot S&W, and a .38/.357 Taurus I’ve never fired. The unfired (except by the factory) S&W 27-2 .357 mag in original presentation box with original paperwork will NOT be coming with me 😂

I'm interested in the night shoot with pistol lights. Of course, night shooting isn't going to get in the way of my beer drinking, so that's not a concern of mine.

I'm assuming that this is Friday night? I'd think that most people will be planning to putt guns away after the King Shot.

This. I wouldn't be that keen to do some long-distance target shooting with lights - although I'd definitely be about multiple engagement distances.

CQB handgun shooting in the dark = No drinking before hand. Everyone already knows this, but I'd hope we'd all be sticklers on that one.

I'd definitely hang around to watch that.

if I ever go for a cowboy gun, it's gonna be a Colt Peacemaker or copy thereof. When I was a kid I read my grandfather's leather bound Time-Life books The Cowboys and The Gunfighters until those pages were worn out. i was always a fan of the later Colts

At least he will never drop and lose his magazine, or have to figure out which spare mag goes in which frame!

I think I have one of those oldfangled rotary dial crank fire jobbydo's in the attic. Might have to blow the cobwebs out and find a "speed loader" for it...

For those attending the Oregon event.....

...........today is what I would classify as a perfect Summer Day in this AO.

Perfect blue sky.

A lovely 79 degrees.

16% relative humidity.

^

Pay attention to this.

The Range Prick will be reminding you on June 19th.

Yeah, I'm amazed that 12V junior is in. He's taking the Valkyrie out for a double 200yard zero check and buying 9mm to borrow my Beretta. Should be a lot of fun.

Our nearest Bi Mart is 100 miles west of us, just before the stupid started they had 1000 round buckets for what sounded like a good price. $125ish ? comes to mind. A friend bought a bunch. Hey that works... He owes me 25 bucks for a Wolff spring set for his High Standard .22. I'll take some in trade.

Thanks for that, Otis......tomorrow.....

Showers and possibly a thunderstorm. Some of the storms could produce small hail, gusty winds, and heavy rain. High near 69. West wind 6 to 11 mph increasing to 16 to 21 mph in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 31 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.
Saturday Night: Showers and possibly a thunderstorm before midnight, then showers likely. Low around 38. West wind 13 to 18 mph decreasing to 7 to 12 mph after midnight. Winds could gust as high as 25 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.

I hope some of that rain makes it out east of Bend. I'd love for it to rain every other day for two weeks leading up to the shoot.

Think of the sauna like conditions when we get wet / soaked pumice and 90* desert heat.

Oh, and sportsnut - no matter what Rich pays you to leave the rain gear at home, I'd like a chance to match it for you to bring it.

Let's just say that I don't love the rain.
