Nvrquit,yep I am and yep that was the one. I resisted the temptation to whip out the plastic but got their business card. The guy manning the table said he`d probably take $425 for it and that they might even take a partial trade. A trip to New Castle may be in my future if I can decide which gun(s) I`m willing to sacrifice. Sounds like I missed out on shooting some neat stuff.... DOH! Marcus

No DOH, just show...

Marcus,
That's gone'a be a long ride, as New Castle is just this side of Ohio.... I know as I was there once as a youngster. that was one very long bus ride to a tournament.

Ray's a pretty good gut to deal with and he'll probably be back at the Forge show in December. If you really want the 1006, set the deal up via phone and do the transfer when he's here in December (if he's coming). Better than the drive, IMHO.


Hey Jerseites! Are you talking about a LIVE turkey shoot?!? OOOOHH, if so are you a blood thirsty bunch (after my own heart). If so, who's going to pluck the feathery beasty's after they've been done in? An exploding turkey head is just a little better than an exploding cantelope(but not very PC in today's world).

Until next time!

nvrquit................

No. It isn't a live turkey shoot! One shoots at a piece of paper against others and sees who can get the most pellets into the circle or other object printed on paper. Shells are provided by the host so everyone is shooting the same brand and amount of pellets. Winner of each round goes to next round or you can buy extra chances and try to beat the winning score again. Are Turkey Shoots just a Jersey thing? I don't believe so. Your pulling my leg nvrquit!

New Castle

I thought New Castle was in Delaware just across the bay (river) from Pennsville, NJ. Is this a different New Castle?? Quantrill

I read about a turkey shoot in a recent National Geographic. I'm serious. We urban elites have to learn about obscure backwoods customs somehow.

Afterwards, can we go on a snipe hunt? SodaPop can hold the potato sack.

New Castle, as in Pennsylvania....

Quantrill,
The dealer I and Marcus were referring to is located in New Castle, PA. This is located approx. 4 miles from the PA/OH border. Nice bus ride if you want to take a very long nap or really test your spouse's love by asking them to share the drive.

Ray 3rd,
Yes, I've heard of the type of turkey shoot you mentioned, but I've also seen(I'll admit that I not good enough) archers shoot at LIVE turkey's heads for their turkey shoot. Don't remember the distance, but it was a bit out there. I also thought it made a nice teaser to ask!

David Park,
Nah, lets give Soda a rest... we'll get the actor that played Fraser on Cheers for the Snipe hunt(now, does anyone remember that one... or was that an eldritch?!?).

BTW, please excuse the horrible spelling on the previous post, asit was done in "drive by" style. Later!

Well I'm back to sunny PA from Miami and it sounds like I missed a good'un.
Hopefully the next event won't be long in coming.

Ray,

Mike

How about November 10th?

I just picked up 1200rds of SA .223 and ordered 1000 230gr bullets and 1000 62gr for reloading.

I'll be ready for ya in another month!!

I never got to shoot half my guns. I had to play range officer and school teacher last time. I hope to have new sights on my Colt by then also. I got a new slide stop got to test out the GI 1911 mags tomorrow.

Anyone want to hit W&W tomorrow? I'll be there!

Another shoot? I still haven't cleaned my guns from the last shoot! (I must be getting lazy like Jody.)

I'm not buying any more guns this year (just like Geoff ) but I'm hoping to add a scope to one or two of my rifles before the next meet. Hopefully my car will be fixed by then too.

Will this be the "Shoot, Sneeze, and Shiver in the Snow" meet?

I think Jody Hudson would make a good Santa. Why don't you put on a Santa suit and we could have a family TFL gathering in December?

Late season TFL shoots...

Sorry, but I won't be able to make any late season shoots.

After the last IDPA match of the year (nex Sunday), I've already promised the spouse that apart from hunting and the occaisional gun show, that all the weekends for the rest of the year are her's to scheddule for us.

Just one of those things... Daniel'san require "balance".

I'll just live any shoots until the new year vicariously through the rest of those participating.

BTW, Tigershark, nice pics. The wife even recognized me in some of them. I did notice though that I need about five to ten thousand more crunches... getting a little of the paunch back.

Shoot safe, shoot well!

We're all clear for November 9th then.

I just got back from putting 400rds threw My mini 14 and about 200rd threw my AR WITHOUT A HITCH!!

Soda's M193 clone loads are Winchester quality.

I gotta pay a little more attention to the "reloading" process for my AR. I need a few more USGI mags.

My Colt 1991A1 works with the GI mags now, too.





November 9th is on the Calendar.

What's it gonna be called?
