ironhorse......its the same model gun we used at the meet. its a little more worn out, but its handling is the same. odds are i'd suggest at the least, a new recoil spring. its a good 15.00 investment to keep it going for another 50 years. i have the details on springs. just ask if you win. call and ask the guy if the wood is cracked anywhere. have him look close in the forearm. ask if the stock is loose if you twist it at the receiver rear.

I will be traveling about 8 hours. A total of 486 miles. I'll be arriving sometime Friday and staying in a hotel nearby. I'll be heading back for Illinois Sunday morning, I imagine.

I'm skilled? That doesn't sound right. I'm completely new to skeet.

I'll be living in Arlington at the time, so here's what it will be for me.

510 mi - about 8 hours 15 mins

Maybe just a little more If me and Trip decide to carpool.

If more want to come, itll have to be a different weekend. Itll still be ftf shooters, and a steak dinner. The new squads will need to build up the meet and pitch in, as did the 5 oct group. Treat it like a whole new match from the ground up. Give me time to order targets and recover from 15 shooters, so plan the 19th of oct if you want it.
