Nah, I can readjust my schedule.

20th works for me!

Let's shoot!

Mike - Would you call the range tomorrow and be sure SFI doesn't have a class on the 20th? If they do, it will cut down on the available positions by half = not good.

(Yes, I know I could call, but you see I'm a cheapskate - it's long distance for me. )

I'm beginning to think that no one actually works at the NRA Range, as I seldom get anyone to answer the *$#)(^&#$)( phone.

Ok,

Good call, Mal.

There IS an SFI class on Dec. 20.

I'm trying to find out at what time, but no one has returned my call yet.

Given how efficient they are at the range, I don't expect anyone will, either.

We may have to postpone this until after the Holidays, or move it to the next day, Friday Dec. 21.

I'll let you all know when I find something out.

I missed the last shoot at the NRA. Do they do group reservations, or is it a 'first come first served' thing?

Now you know why I don't like to call them long distance (you probably already knew). I can spend enough $$ to buy a box of ammo just twiddling my fingers while on hold/ignore.

OK, let's move the time up to 8:30 on December 20.

SFI firing goes from 3 to 8 p.m.

I figure by 8:30 hopefully they'll be off the lanes, and we can shoot.

Hopefully we can shoot.

I'll be there. I've got a stack of Bin Ladin targets that are sized just right for that range too.

Thursday it is.

Ammo shipment from Natchez just arrived (Merry Christmas to me ))

Saw Dr yesterday, he's satisfied with progess, I start physical therapy Tuesday, based on that evaluation, I may even be able to drive [safely] by Thursday.


The trend is up>

I may have a problem.

I think I've torn the rotator cuff in my right arm. I'm going to try to get a doctor's appointment, but it's tough for me to do much of anything right now that involves motion of the arm above the waist.

I don't even want to think about trying to shoot with it right now.

I'll make it if I can, gents. If I can't shoot, I'll at least come to hobnob, and perhaps have dinner at Ruby Tuesday's afterwards.

I'm going. I thought that was clear.

A friend of mine who doesn't post here is going.

Mr. James was intending to come, I need to check in with him.

Well, I thought I was going, but Im not sure now. My travel plans were messed up yesterday and instead of returning to DC at noon, I didn't get back till after 8. So, While I am desperatly trying to play catch up here at the office, I am unsure If I will be getting out in time to make it. I may show up "fashionably" late though

See you there. I'm going monocaliber tonight - all .45 Colt. Well maybe a mousey caliber also.

If anyone wants to request a specific caliber for a tryout, this is the time to do it. Between Mykl and Michael, they have most of 'em covered!

The real question here is, who was the Marksman (ie, gets a title for paying the fee), and who's the High Master?

Well, I obviously tubed that one. My only defense is that when employed, someone inevitably expects one to work...

Take-II in 'O2?
