I look forward to the next get together with everyone,it's always fun meeting other members and shooting guns together.
it was a great day yesterday. yes i was very well wore out and hurting from yesterdays activities and paid the price today for it, but i would not have missed it or trade yesterday for anything. it was well worth it to meet the great people i did yesterday.

and yes, Sam's is still awesome eating!

I was able to get a few photo's of everyone shooting guns.

RaySendero brought his 458 WM cannon,and I think everyone was impressed with the recoil that it dishes out. This guy can shoot,Ray and myself were shooting on the 200 yard range,and he shot an amazing group with one of his 270's. Just one ragged hole,with a hunting rifle,I was impressed. I forgot to get a pic of the target.

Here he is shooting the big gun,notice all the padding he's using to keep the recoil down!



.....
Thb, Axxe,

Got home Saturday night and my internet was down - still is

I've got some pics too, but can't upload them from work. Will get them as up soon as I can recover.

Great meeting everyone!!!

well a week ago today we had a most awesome event here in Texas with some of the great members of this forum coming for many miles to attend.

it was great fun and awesome to meet these members and make new friends. i am happy to have been a part of it.

if you get the opportunity to have a meet and greet in your area or to attend one, do it by all means. i wish that we could have a much larger one at some point in the future with more members able to attend. i had a great time, and the only thing that would have made it better is more members able to attend and more time to spend with them.

I wish I could have made it but something came up and I just couldn't .
But I am working on my own range. And we could have it at my place.
If your really nice I will even BBQ for you guys.
