Sensop - I am good for any weekend in September. Just set it up and let me know.

Might be a good time for some buggars-on-the-grill ?

I'm looking toward the end of Sept ... hoping it will start to cool off some.:)

I have a new AR to bring to the discussions...

Closing on a house the first weekend, after that I'll come, you decide...

I know I'm busy on Sunday the 9th. Other than that I -should- be free. Just let me know what is decided on and I'll do my best to be there.

Sorry, no exploding targets this time. We used up all I had at the last meet. :)

Considering that Utah is far, far away, The Peach might be a consideration for this Cavalier.

Tho I might go to the Krick instead.

Decisions, Decisions. :D :D

We'd be glad to meetcha TR!

August 21, 2001, 08:54 PM
Too bad we have some range restrictions. I'd REALLY like to try a gas can and some tracer! :D

I reckon I could settle for army men shot down with .22's at 10 yards or so.

I'd REALLY like to try a gas can and some tracer!

A can of gas might be a bit much but if we visit Sensop's range I can bring a can of carburator cleaner that will do nicely.:D


August 21, 2001, 11:17 PM
Heh. Maybe we should talk to him before we plan how to destroy his range! :D (Wonder if he'll let us fire a few tracers? Anyone have a .308, in case Spartacus can't make it?)

I've been really lax about getting to the range lately - can I play (if the wife'll let me, of course...)?

Where is this happening? I'd love to show up.

Ft. Valley Ga Gun Club. Sensop is the host member so I will let him provide further info. P.S. Sensop - I received my Cool Springs Club membership in the mail today. :D

I definitely won't be able to make early Sept. Later in the month?

Bud Helms
August 31, 2001, 06:05 AM
Aaack! I forgot to check this thread for a week or two.

Here are directions: FVGC Map (http://members.home.net/rifleer/fvgcmap.doc)

Fort Valley is about twenty miles south of Macon and, say, eight miles west of I75. It is an outdoor range with covered shooting sheds and dirt berms for backstops. No facilities! Bring your own water and strikin' paper!:D

All non-Georgia residents will be required to present properly stamped visas for entry.:cool:

Later in the month is not a problem for me. I'm looking at the calendar and 15, 22 and 29 are the third, fourth and fifth Saturdays. Sundays are fine for me too. That'd be 16, 23 and 30. What say you all? I'm thinking 22 Sept.

Edmund, any training class conflicts?

You guys need to get there early so you can see Spartacus and Spectre pull up in a Mustang convertible with five or six rifle cases sticking up in the air. I meant to ask: Did you guys get any long, suspicious stares coming down I75 last time?

22 September might work. To be honest, Sundays are usually better since -everything- seems to happen on Saturdays but the 23rd won't work for me.

Oh well, whatever we come up with I'll try to be there and maybe even a bit earlier than last time.:)


The Rock
September 2, 2001, 09:51 AM
How about later in the month? I'm thinking that later on might be doable.

I'm closing on a house in mid Sept so that is something I can't miss.


September 3, 2001, 04:49 PM

We may have had some suspicious stares- but if so, they didn't last long! ;)

Besides, we're perfectly reputable-looking individuals! :D (and I'll claim so, until you post the pics to disprove it!)

Bud Helms
September 8, 2001, 07:56 AM
Well, it's looking like the 22nd of September. That's two weeks from today ... I'm already planning on another down in the December.

I wonder if a certain individual that jumps out of perfectly good airplanes for a living will be able to make it. And Hube too.

We need to see more of the Atlanta TFLers come down. I haven't met most of you guys.

TR, I hope you can make it.


It's too late ... pics were already posted on the last gathering.:) You realize you are judged by the company you keep?

I'm working the weekend of the 22nd. Dang!!

I'm in, I wanna play too! Somebody holler at me @ [email protected] if this comes about.

I'm building a house, need some R&R. :(

Tom B
September 13, 2001, 07:14 AM
Sensop - Is 22 Sept the firm date?

Bud Helms
September 18, 2001, 03:47 AM
How do I miss these posts?

Yes, Tom, Sep 22 is firm.

I will have the range open at 0900.

Who all is coming down?

Tom B
September 18, 2001, 05:05 AM
I will be there. :D

Kent White
September 18, 2001, 07:14 AM
I'll be there. What are we shooting? I need to know so I have the right toys...and have my -CENSORED--CENSORED--CENSORED--CENSORED--CENSORED- together.


Kent White
September 18, 2001, 07:17 AM
Anyone have a .308, in case Spartacus can't make it?)

Spectre, I can bring my Scout rifle, but I don't got no tracers.


Bud Helms
September 18, 2001, 07:54 PM

It's a free for all ... :) Bring what ever you want to shoot or show off. If Spartacus brings his Uzi, it would be a good idea to help with the ammo (like I didn't last time.:o)

Can't, gotta work. The Hot Rod Power Festival is this weekend too! Man, everything good has happened on my work weekends this year! :mad:


Joe Klug
September 20, 2001, 12:44 AM
I'll try to get down there but I can't promise anything right now. Things are changing daily and I now have a campaign to try to get off the ground too.

I'll try to post something one way or the other on Friday night.


Derek Zeanah
September 20, 2001, 06:36 AM
Not sure if I'll make it. Wife is leaving for a month on the 23rd, so we may choose to spend the day together...

Byron Quick
September 20, 2001, 08:58 AM

How did I miss this? Oh well, folks, there is not much chance of my making it but I'll try to get someone to work for me Saturday night.


You didn't come close to expending my ammo:D In fact, I came home with ammo for the Uzi. Was kinda disappointed.

Joe Klug
September 21, 2001, 11:07 PM
Unfortunately, it looks like I won't be able to make it either. Hate to say that since I really wanted to go. Oh well, maybe next time. There's just too much going on right now.


Joe Klug
September 23, 2001, 01:48 AM
Well? How did the meet go?

Tell me it rained and everyone was miserable so I won't feel so bad about missing out.:)

Seriously though, I hope you had a great time. Anyone take any pics?


Rainbow Six
September 23, 2001, 05:59 AM
Yeah, somebody fill us left out folks in!:(


Tom B
September 26, 2001, 07:34 PM
Sensop do you want to tell them about this sorry state of affairs or should I? :confused:

Bud Helms
September 26, 2001, 09:01 PM
Go ahead, Tom.

Tom B
September 27, 2001, 06:10 AM
Just Sensop and I showed up! :mad:

Joe Klug
September 28, 2001, 02:37 AM

Sorry to hear that. I thought for sure you would have had at least 5 or 6 folks there.

I wish I had been able made it. A month ago I thought for sure that I would be there but this election thing came up and I haven't got a lot of time to prepare for that.

Maybe we could do an indoor meet this winter. The time we all met at Wolf Creek in Douglasville went pretty good.
