20. Don’t walk past the far edge of the houses unless loading the bunker.

Please explain this to me. What is "loading the bunker"?

its very easy to forget where you are and if you poke your head around a corner....you can find a shotgun pointing at you. never wander past the houses edges and for goodness sake, dont look in a target window where the birds come flying out! the machines are COCKED AND ARMED when running.

i will walk you guys around to show you all this in the safety walkaround.

Winds, think of the bunkers as the field artillery to our small arms. They have to be loaded and readied to fire too.

Sticking your head in the window as Bobski is reminding us, is really no different than sticking your head in front of the muzzle of our "cannons". It's where these clay pigeons come out at upwards of 50ish MPH. Plenty enough to kill a person if they're not lucky, or seriously eff their whole world up if they are.

Shooters like you and I, and the other competitors, I don't imagine will be loading the bunkers very much unless volunteers are asked for.

By the way, Bobski, I hereby volunteer for anything you may need to keep this shin dig running smoothly, as far as extra hands.

If the guns are loaded with rock salt, it'll be just like high school!

this is the bunker. inside it is a machine with targets. every 135 rounds, my staff must load it again.
we must go forward of the line. ceasefire is called and a cone or hat is put up on the roof to tell everyone someones in there.

I've been down in Jamaica for my son's wedding and a whole lot of "celebrating". I am now in Florida visiting Cane. When I get home and am all done having fun, I'll be back on here more often.
