    :D
    Hickok45 is out shooting when it's 100 and humid in Nashville. He looks like he's dying out there but has a big smile on his face. Toughen up Winds! :D

    Sounds like stalkingbear has a range something like Hickok's. Should be a lot of fun!

    What, you mean Kentucky gets hot? ;) I spend most of my drive time in the deep desert southwest. Thats hot....

    Seriously a shooting weekend sounds pretty good. Its been a while since I've taken any time off for myself. :D

    I'm thinking it might help for you to hold the gun with the barrel horizontal. That vertical direction will only hit the ground or the roof, resulting in your unfortunate symptoms... ;):D

    StalkingBear, I'm the same distance as rn-Cindy, so I'd love to come! Do you have a range that can handle Bertha? If so, I'll bring her and people can take turns! Oh, by the way, "Bertha" is my Barrett 107A in .50 BMG.

    Sounds good to me! That will give me a chance to get her better where she's undergoing daily cancer treatments in Louisville daily. After this is where they take almost 1/2 her leg below the knee, then reconstructive surgery. Hopefully by then all the running around like a chicken with it's head cut off will be long done! No sweating buckets for me then. Winds, you really think I'm a decent shot?

    I'm sorry but only have a 100 yard range, hardly challenging for Bertha. If you want to bring her there's no sound limitations though.

    Oh, yeah. I forgot to tell you, Bear. He can also be a smart ***. He makes me laugh, too. :D


    Fall it is, then. I'll see what weekends I'm off and offer up a few dates we can all vote on.

    Well it's about 100 miles from Indy to Louisville, and I'm about 30 miles south of Louisville so I'd say about 2 1/2 hours to Bloomfield.

    Just so you old timers know...theres a new thing called "google maps"..Type in where your at right now on the top line, then type Lebanon Kentucky on the bottom line, then press enter....It will tell you all you want to know about how long / far to get there......:D.

    There's always a way to make it a challenge. We'll keep it to iron sights and only fire from the shoulder standing. Everyone's okay with a 30 lb rifle, right? :p :woohoo:

    I kinda think I'd droop with a 30# rifle! ATTN: I live near Bloomfield now, in a trailer out in the country. Still have PLENTY parking area though. EXTREMELY easy to find too!

    Wait. What? You have to pay for air????? Where and who's responsible for this??? I can use a map & compass so why try to rely on something that might quit when I can easily memorize the whole trip before I start?

    Bloomfield Indiana or Kentucky?




    Speedways around here charge a dollar!!!! Caseys are still free though. I never have to worry about it though because when my grandpa was still here he converted all the fittings on a 20lb propane tank to all the standard air tool fittings for me. He used to make all kinds of neat things like that. Keep it in the bed of my truck and with 150psi it'll fill 5+ tires
