Luckily for you, James' range is south of I-20.

If he is gracious enough to have us back.

Well I hope Mr James is ok. This has been a great event in the past. I brought my 13 year old son last year and he couldn't stop saying it was the best time he ever had! He shot ~ 1500 rds thanks to the fine folks from the files and their posties.

I have been a few years and ALWAYS had a great time. I have moved from the area but recommend it if you can make it.

BTW: It is not Jame's range, he has to get permission from the land/range owner.

I've been thinking about it but the problem is it's been raining so much for the last four months I don't know when it's not going to rain. I like to give about a two month notice so everyone has time to plan.

We'll see how it the weather goes in February and maybe get something going then.

I'd say an emergency meeting real soon. It's the best. More fun than a man deserves.

I'd like to come to the shoot. Hope it works out. Hey James, how is Randy doing these days? I haven't had any communication with him in the last year or so.

Would love to see something get put together. I missed the last few because I didn't know about them until after they happened.

yeah I don't collect like I used to, Never sold anything though. Hoping to get back into making new purchases soon Ammo prices never dropping back to the pre-obama days put a damper on my range time.

Hope you are doing well also brunop.

Texgunner: Yeah I haven't posted in a while but have been lurking lately.
