for those of us who are new to TFL shoots, where is the desert location? I may have to come a little late because my class at SLCC doesn't get out until 12:30. Lets make sure and come up with directions for us "not so crusty" TFL guys.

This group is really starting to rock!
The April get together sounds like an event not to miss. Looking forward to the details (where & all that) later. Count me in.
As for the desert location, it's west of Lehi in Tooele county. Go west from Lehi on State Rt. 73 through Cedar Fort and Fairfield. Just after crossing the county line, bear left where the sign indicates the historic Pony Express trail. After that it depends on where we decide to be. There is a prominent monument about 5-7 or so miles after the turn off (on the north side of the road with a little parking). (GPS N 40 deg 12 min 23.4 sec W 112 deg 17 min 35.5 sec) It would make a great rallying point. The last two times I have been out there to shoot I have gone south on the road that is directly across from that monument. Pretty good terrain down that way.
By the way, my sunshade/UFO has fallen on hard times and is not what you could call fully serviceable nowadays. Suggestions appreciated.
The gas grill liked the last trip so well that it wants to go again.
I think a neighbor of mine will want to come on this one. The more the merrier!

Since the previous TFL Gathering point has been locked up to shooters - the new location will have to be further west... We are still working on specific details.

Wow. Lots of folks.

Utah TFL is growing rapidly. I believe I speak for all when I say that everybody who is a safe and responsible gun user/owner is welcome. We have some very knowledgable folks here, and personally I look forward to doing some heavy duty plinking.

This get-together should be awesome.

Too late, Caeca.
That president is out of office now.
I suspect that a couple of weeks ago some kind of political "contribution" might have gotten us some serious privileges out there!
I'll be bringing at least one shooter with me on this trip.
Starting to get fired up about the 24th!

Ummmm...

Debating on going or not. As much as I'd like to--I'd rather save ammo money for a house. Maybe I'll just come and watch the fireworks.


*sigh*

Question for skyder

Didn't you say you have a chronograph?
I got a 1991 Compact I would love to get some Data out of.
That and my NAA Mini. If I could find the equation we could do the math on peoples guns.
Shoot 3, Average, work the math.

My friend is bringing some cardboard targets. We do timed shoots where you have to run a course of about 7 targets, from 2 meters to 25. And move from 1 to 2 positions. From the draw. FUN FUN FUN.

Right-o
I told the chrony it could go with us and it can hardly contain itself. Must have been talking to the gas grill about the last outing!!
Is this going to be a press on regardless of the weather event or are we going to have a plan B readied?

Looks like there will be at least 3 people coming from the Logan contingent of TFL lurkers and sometimes posters.

The weapon roster between me and my friends (as best as I can remember):

L1a1 FAL
Springfield M1A loaded model
Bushmaster Dissipator
Bushmaster Shorty
SAR 1 AK
SKS
Ishipore Enfield
Turk Mauser
Springfield 1911 Stainless loaded model
Ruger p91
Beretta Border Marshal
Glock 19
Feg Hi-Power
Beretta M21
Taurus snubby .357
(2) Browning Buckmarks

And that is with leaving shotguns home. I can only imagine having to explain to the UHP if we get pulled over and the car is bottomed out from all of the firearms.

"Do you have any weapons in the car Mr. Correia?"
"Yes Officer, about twenty or so."

Now that might be a bit hard to explain.

And I think that maybe we should start a new thread, with the pertinant meeting times and places at the very beginning. This one has become kind of complicated.

Clock is ticking. Man I'm pumped this is going to be awesome!

And the one in April by Utah lake will be great too!

Are we going to meet at the gas station in Lehi like last time?

We should start another thread with all of the pertinant meet info at the start and take a roll call.

This is going to be great! I'm going to go into debt to buy ammo.
