HAHAH Yeah I thought that was you. You were in a dark Greenish car right?

I tried to stick around but I had to get out. I seriously have to only bring one gun to these things. It was crowded there and it took forever to wait for everyone to stop shooting so we could change targets.

My Fal worked and I learned how to hit something at 100yds with an AR.

I also learned how to "IMPROPERLY INSERT A MAG IN AN AR" oops sorry Geoff

oh and I saved all my targets that I shot at 400yds. The one I shot with my FAL is hilarious. I set my MOA too low and put a bunch of rounds in the dirt right in front of the target. The rounds bounced off the ground and went sideways into the target. I had about 12 147gr bullets enter the paper sideways. It's the most bizzare thing I've ever seen on a paper target.

When I got home, I noticed a C-shaped cut in my forehead. If only those Russian brass-spitters were as dangerous to the targets!

Thanks to everyone who helped me break in my FAL. Once we figured out it was shooting WAY to the left, things improved rapidly. The unfortunate side-effect of TFL meets is discovering all the stuff you absolutely have to buy. I'm sure DSA thanks you.

If it gets too cold for you guys up in PA, maybe you can make the 3-hour drive down to the NRA indoor range for a future meet.

Did you get hit by someone's Brass? I was surprised by the number of FAL's that were at the range that day.
It won't get too cold for some of us.

Where is Justin and Kyle? Darogue and Jhuang?

If it is above -10 then I am good to go, for the most part. I was suprised by how WARM it was Sunday.

SodaPop,

Yeah that greenish blur was me driving down that road. I noticed you had a slow mover infront of you

Also guess we need a sign or something to let people know "Hey this is TFL right here, come over and say HI!" I am certain I will be out there again SOON. Will drop you an email, or PM then.

K80Geoff,

I like the hat you were wearing Sunday, I need to get one!!!!!

Sorry guys, this past Sunday was my turn to host the Eagles football party. No guns, but at least pizza, wings and beer were present. Will have to catch you guys next time.

jthuang ,

There is a place right up 663 (about 4-5 miles from W&W), that has big screen TVs, Pizza, and BEER!!!!!! PC Pub in Pennsburg! For PA it is a rather nice bar... Atleast from the ones I have seen around the area.... Nothing like the Red Hill Hotel :barf: Well atleast there the prices are mad cheap!!!!


9mmMike,

I have to post a picture that I took of someone's hat at W&W.....

If it was the one that Geoff was wearing, mine was still better. Just ask him!

Mike

PS. Thanks to Geoff for his help at the patterning board. Next time I'll bring some paint. Thanks also to Ted for the newspaper that I had to use to pattern my SG.
One thing I know for sure now. If we are ever atacked by the Wall Street Journal, I've got it covered!
And finally thanks to SodaPop for reserving and guarding all the tables!

Dead, that's me in the picture, ponytail and all.

Soda, yes, I was hit by brass from someone a few benches down. It caught me right below the hat and above the glasses. Now I know why you set up on the far left. My shoulder feels pretty good today, but I still have a headache.

I enjoyed the shoot. I wish sighting in that muzzleloader hadn't taken so long, I really wanted to try the AR at longer yardage.
Maybe I'll get a decent buck to make it worthwhile.

I'd like to join, looks like a decent place to shoot, especially for the longer ranges.

Good to meet you guys!

David Park-You wouldn't happen to know what caliber hit you would you?

I was happy to see Water and Wings followed threw and reserved the tables for us. We should make the next shoot a Rifle shoot or a Pistol shoot. That way we all hang together a little more.

Where's Dinosaur??? I mean Mr. Personality?

Dead,

Thanks for the pointer -- I had to host the party at my place though. Although your place sounds a lot nicer than mine, I couldn't fit a TV bigger than a 32" in my apartment so that's all I got. Would have been nice if the Eagles won.

Justin

Soda, I'm pretty sure I was wounded by lacquered 7.62x39, as there was plenty of it laying around.

I think I found an explanation for my occasional failures to feed over at the FAL Files. If the magazine lips are too sharp, they can dig into the brass cases. I noticed deep scratches in some of the jammed cartridges, so it seems I'll have to smooth the lips on a few mags, especially the "new" one that came with the gun.

I ordered a sight tool (and some other stuff) from TAPCO, so hopefully I'll be able to finish sighting in the FAL sometime.

Anyone hear from K80Geoff??? Looks like he never made it make to NY, maybe he is held up in PA somewhere.

I think we should designate the shoot as either a Rifle, Pistol/HD shotgun or Shotgun shoot. We need to find a range where we (TFL that is) are the only ones there. The range got too crowded this time.

I bought a little bit of everything and got to shoot only my rifle most of the time. The shotgunning was a bust (OK I forgot the roll of brown paper Mea Culpa!).

Those guys on the PISTOL range with AR's and MAS whatevers were verry annoying and their range etiquette left something to be desired. At one point that clown with the French MAS whatever was firing across the range from right to the left side.

We had no way of knowing who was TFL, I am almost sure that some people showed up and left. Maybe we all need to get TFL hats or MOLON LABE hats and (UGH) name tags :barf:

C'mon you guys in PA, find us a private range.

OK I am as much at fault for this as anyone, If we are going to have a shoot someone will have to do some organizing and set up a table or something. I guess I will volunteer next time

Dead, whatinhell were you up to You were walking kinda funny and grinning too much!

K80Geoff,

I know a few people around the area. Will have to ask about other ranges. I know they shoot, just dont know where. Maybe you could just bite the bullet and buy some land in PA????

Oh and ummm I think I had too much coffee Sunday.


We do NOT need to wear name tags, just need a sign that says "TFL here, say Hi!". Or just walk around asking "Hey are you with TFL???"... That worked for me, at the first shoot. Then, again ONLY TFL was there that day in the cold/rain.
