Ben (and others),

I am still looking for a Computer/IT job where I can work in a Datacenter/NOC building, managing, and working with servers. I am open to any suggestions. Post here or email will work.

If I haven't found anything by July 11th, I plan to take the Cobb County PD test..... I already have the test booklet and info.

Thanks

Anyone that's coming Saturday, that has a digital camera, try to remember to bring it.

Weather?

What's the drill if it's raining as seems possible at this point?

I will be there unless it is a frog strangler! Even if it does storm, if it looks like it will blow through, I will be there ... in which case I will have my Georgia Red Clay Clodhoppers on.

Wish I could come. I have to work this weekend (fri-sat-sun). I'd love to bring my new AR15 shorty and try it out. Maybe next time...

The 1st Annual Fort Valley Out Of Towner's Invitational Unlimited Mixed Gun Match was a great visit ... and a whole lot of powder was burned up!

It was a fine time! TFLers present were Spartacus, TomB, Spectre, Joe Klug, Edmund Rowe and yours truly.

Spartacus brought an Uzi ... my first time on one of those.

Spectre brought the Beast, a Mossberg bolt action 12 ga shotgun. It was beastly with three inch Federal 1 1/4 oz slugs! That sucker would leap right off the rest ... I had to lash it down with some parachute cord!!

TomB brought a sweet Browning Hi Power.

Joe Klug let me shoot his CZ97, but I liked the 75 better. That's the first time I've ever seen the 97. But the surprise for me was the Beretta in .45 ACP. I liked it! Very manageable, very accurate.

Edmund got out of his car with a .45 on each hip (Glocks?).

Lots of plastic out there today. But I held up the 1911 crusade with a 1991A1 Cmdr and a Mech Tech upper on a Springfield Mil Spec lower.

Someone shot a Makarov for the first time ... Joe? Another convert.

All were safe, hot and tired, come 5PM. Pics soon.

I'm envious. Uncle had me working in the morning. I wanted to get my hands on Joe's CZ97 again damn it. . Oh well hopefully there will be another one soon.

Hope you guys had much fun.

Spartacus is out like a light on my sofa. Something about a day of shooting that just tends to wear a body out. (Then again, maybe it's just the schnapps. )

Wow! After the potentential for gloom, we had a beautiful day. "The Beast" does indeed kick- I'm can't post long-I'm icing my shoulder!

Bud, thanks for the help with the sight-in and setting this up, and thanks to y'all for coming.

Just the six of us showed, but it was a good time. We talked about you guys ... just like we promised. We weren't disturbed from shoooting (or braggin') all day. 'Had the range to ourselves. Not even a club member showed up until we were pulling out.

Let's do it again once it cools off, say, October?

Sensop,
I was upholding the 1911 tradition also, with a Kimber Classic Gold Match. I like Joe's CZ's and am a Makarov convert now. Even though I've always considered DA/SA self loaders to be a perfect solution in desperate search of a problem.
It was great spending time with you folks. Definitely have to do it again.

How about Advanced NEXT Saturday?

I'm loosely planning on going up to Advanced Bullets next Saturday. I've got this Anti I'm tryin to get to go with me... I've convinced her it's a great hobby, and now she wants to try it.

She did the Shoot-no-shoot simulator at the Atlanta PD Academy, and now wants to do the real thing. Can you blame her? I just hope she gets the day off of work.

Sensop,

Thanks once again for setting that meet up for us. Like everyone else, I had a great time. It was well worth the 300+ mile round trip. And yes, I will have to seriously think about getting one of those Maks. It was a lot better of a shooter then I was expecting.

Setting up another meet down there in October might be a good idea. I'll do my best to make it. The FVGC is a great place. I couldn't believe we were the only ones out there on such a nice day.

One helpful tip for my fellow TFLers.......when someone posts directions to a place you need to go print them out right away. I made the mistake of thinking "I'll visit the thread the night before the meet and print them out then". Bad mistake on my part as the forum was down Friday night and Saturday morning. I spent about 45 minutes trying to find someone who could point me in the general direction of Fort Valley Gun Club. Luckily, I was able to find such a person and just got there a bit late.

Ben, If you want to meet at Advanced next Saturday I can probably be there around 1pm. I have an appointment at 10am that I really shouldn't miss.

Joe
