I put out two new gongs today. Better bring your A game for these, both are 9" wide with one being 30" tall and the other only 12". For those that remember how the river bends to the left these are as far around the bend as you can get and still see them.

If you haven't booked your room there is a brand new Comfort Inn right across from Holiday Inn. At least it looks like it's open.

Yep, sounds fun. That's gotta be 500+

Booked at the HIE in Desoto. Wife said she's coming. Sure I'll piss her off between now and then and she'll back out

The weather report for Desoto Texas calls for 80% chance of rain Friday and 40% chance on Saturday.

How accurate do you think this is?

It's says about a 1/4" on Friday. I'm got my fingers crossed that it won't happen either day.

Yesterday would have been perfect.

Forecasting a week out is a guessing game.

I think there is only one in Desoto. I think MP and some others are also staying there.

Holiday Inn Express & Suites Dallas South - Desoto
1310 E. Wintergreen Road
Desoto, TX 75115

I think there is a cracker barrel next to it but it doesn't come up on the map anymore in that area.

Called the front desk and yep it's the one with the Cracker Barrel. There's an outback up the road a couple of clicks

Thanks Pat. I just tried to call IGH and also Hilton who has a Hampton Inn just up the road. Both calls apparently went somewhere overseas and could not accomplish the mission

I'll book a hotel when back on my work laptop tomorrow evening with a simple click or two. I have been on vacation this week and still trying to be hard headed about not logging on to that laptop unless necessary

.....or I will sleep in the back seat of the rental car. I've seen me do it

I booked there because of points and pet friendly in case the wife wants to go. I'm still kinda on the fence if I really want her to go especially cold and rainy. 56 for a high with north wind of 15MPH is damn cold for people that live below I10. She'll start whining. Rain chance has moved down to 50% on Friday. Dallas area can get to be a mud hole this time of year.

The only way to tell what the weather will be like on a particularly day is when you get up that day and go outside. So we'll see what the weather is like Saturday.

Wow,

This sounds like a blast. I will be out of town for this one, perhaps if there is another I can make it. Finally got my first FAL, DSA izzy this year.

Shit, I need to bring a chainsaw to build a fire or dig this wool coat I have out from somewhere it was packed 5 years ago. Man it looks cold north of I10 toward yankee town Texas

Yup. I'm at the Desoto Hampton Inn, a 1/4 mile or so North of the HIE where most are staying.

I think we will be good to go on Saturday. I had probably 15 FAL shoots and 5 church shoots and have never been rained out. I do remember one time it poured down on Friday well into the night but come Saturday it stopped. I was very muddy but we got a lot of shooting in that day. If you have any rubber boots you may want to bring them.

Might as well check in. Looking forward to the get together! I'll have a few toys there as usual.

To answer the couple of above questions.....

I'm fairly qualified to give a Randy report since he works out of our shop. He is fulltime at a nearby SO nowdays (Sgt. - midshift). He only comes in maybe, at most, 3-4 days a month. When he does he is very busy with many projects.

MP..... Randy may attend. He advised that if he did not he may have something ready for you that he wanted me to deliver.

And as for an FFL, yes, I have one.


It will be great to see all of you. It's been quite a while.

Hey can you guys use nametags with your screen name on them? I know some of you and vice versa but I don't know all of you.

I'll be wearing a t-shirt from Fal Fest with my screen name on it.

I look forward to finally meeting you

Personally, I'll be really easy to spot. Mid-50s guy, bit of a beer belly, gray beard, probably a camo or khaki shirt. I'm sure I'll stand out in the crowd

On another topic, are we planning for drinks, dinner, or other get-together somewhere Friday evening? I'm staying at the Hampton just 1/4 mile north of the HIE where some of you are staying, so in the same neighborhood in Desoto.

Assuming my flight is on time, I should get to the hotel around 5:30 and could meet up somewhere at 6 or later. Any thoughts or suggestions on this topic?

There's an Outback, On the Border and El Chico all right there. Probably all will be packed.

You are our local guide James. Guide us brother.

Pick your favorite one and a time, whoever can do so will converge there I'm sure.

The wife and I will be at an event elsewhere in town until 7:30 or so but I'd like to come down and have a beer or something afterwards if anyone is up for it. She pointed out that our event isn't offering a meal so I assume we'll be looking for supper somewhere.

If y'all are meeting for dinner tomorrow night, I can run down there after work.

I had my C1A1 at a Church shoot last month. It was the first time I used it after taking the entire front end apart fior work, and when I rattled off 20 at 100 yds, not one single hole was on the paper.
So tonight, to the indoor range and on to the 25 yard rifle lane I go.
I thought I screwed in the front post the correct number of turns, but I obviously was way, way off.
Dangit! this crap is too much like work.

I'm bringing a pot of homemade chili with chips and cheese to top it for Saturday. Not that Wolf stuff that looks like before you eat it the same way coming out.

I have been back and forth over the last few days about making this shoot. Have had pretty much zero time to prepare since I noticed it on Tuesday.

At this point I think I am going to try to ironman it and make the round trip from Buda in one day. Hopefully I can make it by 8 on Saturday.

This relo shit is so f’d up I desperately need some nitrocellulose based stress relief

I plan to show up for the morning and will bail at the first release in the afternoon

What I bring will depend on what all I can find in boxes

Bring that buffalo rifle too and we'll launch some football-sized lead down range!

Just FYI - A quart Mason jar of moonshine shows up when they X-ray your checked bag and results in questions from TSA, or so I've heard

Weather up: Little bit of rain came through about 8-9 this morning and lasted about 30 minutes or so then that's it. Northern blew in but not that cold, it's 46 now. Got a wind blowing which should help dry out the ground. Sky is clearing gradually. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny.

Looks like it should be good to go tomorrow.
