well thats it folks. your ftf forum shoot is dead in the water.
2 months to prep, 20 excited people toyed with it, but eventully petered out.
100 invites and one guy signs up.
ozarkfrog and i will have a little informal lesson one on one.
i'll carry the free ticket over to oct's meet.
oct will be different. im not going to chase down 100 guys and combat 100 excuses.
i'll just post it up and if you come you come.
43,000 posters here. only one signs up.
wow.
there was an old saying in the seal teams i remember well....

"dont give me 99 reasons why you cant, give me 1 one reason you can."

how fitting.......ozarkfrog must be a SEAL.

Maybe I'm a little sensitive today, but your comments rubbed me the wrong way regarding this shoot. As far as excuses, I didn't even need to respond since the request to attend was not solicited by me. Also, just because I am a supporting member doesn't obligate me to drive 12hrs round trip to shoot skeet which I have no interest in. I don't even own a shotgun!

I'm with ya on this, dielsel fuel will kill ne that far, plus my wife is pregnant so I'm saving as Mich money as I can, I posted a post on shooting backyard trap with a cut down shotgun and was offered a free ticket to this, I don't really have the money to go that far with the expenses and now I'm being ridiculed for not attending, that is B.S. and I think I'm done with this forum, because yes I was rubbed the wrong way too, I appreciate the offer but when I say I don't think I'm gonna go and I keep getting bugged with offers.

There's no need to be smug and spiteful that nobody can take time off work and spend even more money to travel and shoot. We all have our own lives, don't be pissy we can't put them on hold at your beck and call

i have every right to be upset. i can plan 1 year out, you guys cant? im driving 3000 miles round trip for you guys to do this. and you guys cant figure out a yes or no for a weekend?

dont shoot me. shoot yourselves.
i did this for you guys and gave you 2 months to work it into your lives.
may i remind you....you guys asked for a meet...all i did was head it up and offer my home.
the shame isnt on me my friend.
may i remind you of the june 11 smg invite?
case closed.



so be part of the solution, dont add to the problem.
help pass the word and start planning in ink, for oct 2013. not pencil.
itll be the next gracious offer i'll make.
but i aint calling any of you again. its not worth my time.

sorry your feelings were hurt.
what about me?
350 pm's, 100 excuses, never again. i quit.
