we are down to 11 maybes.
unless we have 10 yes's, im not ordering 600.00 of targets for this meet.
its that simple. i cant tie up my funds on a promise.
and if you come anyway at the last minute and expect to shoot, i cant promise targets will be on site.
so its one of those 'either or' situations.
either we have 10 people pony up, or i aint ordering targets. last time i had a party in va., i ordered a keg on promises that 100's would come. no one showed. it wont happen again. i dont throw parties and pray people show up any more.
if people find out they can come past the target order deadline, i will do my best to have enough on site. i can process your tickets up to 27 feb from here in va.. after that, i cant guarentee your ticket will make it to you by meet day. so, youll just have to come and have it at the counter waiting. just pray i find targets to have for you locally.
hey...no skin off my back if this doesnt happen. i have a barn to paint. i gave you all a 3 month headsup to plan.
you all asked for a ftf meet, i provided one. i provided means for others to donate tickets to the less fortunate, i offered ways to pay for the shoot with labor by painting my barn, i even had ftf even considering prizes. but no one has done anything. period. so, i did my part as a fellow forum poster. in doing all this, i defined what kind of man i am. i do what i say im going to do.
now life goes on.
if some of the fellow forum members hadnt warned me that weak commitments tend to be common place here, i would have been shocked. but being informed has prepared me for no's.
it really strikes me as odd, some wouldnt hestitate to drive 900 miles for bbq and a knat infested picnic, but balk at a real live free shooting event on a gun forum. odd indeed.
so, call me soon and say yes, or this thing looks doomed like all the others.
and like i said earlier, youre all welcome to use my grounds for a non shooting get together. just dont look for a red carpet.
if any of you are going to do this, you need to do it now.
otherwise i'll be up on the barn painting 9 mar.
the chief has spoken.

for those considering the meet, here is your bug out list:

* shotgun, 12ga or 20ga. must have shoulder stock. must be in working order. suggest pump, semi, o&u, or sbs.
* interchangable chokes both IC & FULL. SKT will be fine too. if you dont have a gun with interchangable chokes, bring two shotguns...one with a full and one with a skeet or IC choke in it.
* 10 boxes of ammo, 7 1/2 or 8 shot.
* ball cap
* safety glasses, clear or smoked.
* shell pouch if you have one. (dont buy one, i have some you can borrow.)
* ear plugs, not ear muffs. those big dorky ones will interfere with your stock fit to your cheek.
* batters gloves. nice but not needed.
* 10 gallons of nerves
* 1 humble pie
* and 8 hours of energy
