Shooting GTG 18 Oct @ 2pm

Looks like most people said that the 18th would be the most promising. Weather looks like it is going to be beautiful all weekend. So here we go:

When: 18 Oct @ 2pm
Where: Ralph's Range in Tom Bean, TX
Fees: $3/Hour
Range Phone number: 903-546-6524
Address: FM902 and Joe Bob Road, Tom Bean, TX (just south of Sherman, TX)
Google Maps (don't know exactly how accurate this is): http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&sa...ed=0CBAQ8gEwAA
Range Details: Basically an open range with a 12 foot high 50 foot long berm. Has target stands for 1x2x8 posts (you bring 1x2x8 posts to tack targets to), Anything legal is allowed (speed shooting, holster draws, FMJ, AP, Tracer, Title I/II, .50 BMG, tannerite). ~120 yds max range. Bench/seated/standing/prone all allowed.

I guess they don't have any targets there, but I made 4 targets out of plywood and 2x4s, so if you don't have anything to shoot at I can help.

Color me there, though I'll shoot for 2, but might be there as late as 2:30pm.

I'll just be bringing my XD-40, unless anybody wants to figure out how to sight in my grandpa's old .30-30.

Im a maybe. I'll be coming in from out of town that morning.

If I show up, I'll either bring my m60, mg42, or mp40. Or maybe just a garand. Who knows, depends on how much cleaning I want to do after wards.

Thanks for the PM Ghost

Consider me a distinct possibility, if I come i'll be bringing the AR, the .45, and the 9mm.

Hopefully I get all my crap done this weekend.

Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them.

Winchester 94.

Fixed iron, but can adjust the vertical. Gun shoots to the left, and I can't figure out how to fix that. Afraid to use tools on it as I don't want to damage/break the site.

Well, this sucks. I don't think I am going to get my AK47 in time. I ordered it early last week (mon/tue) and they said I should have it in 7-8 days. When I called them to get an update all I got was their voice mail saying that everyone caught the flu and they are severely low on manpower.

I am still going to the GTG, but I will just be bringing my handguns and shotgun. Assuming I get the AK47 sometime next week, I will probably go back up there next weekend.

Don't think so, but I wasn't sand bagging it. Its never been shot until I pulled the trigger a few months ago.

Normally not that bad of a consistent shot.

Would you still be interested in next weekend? I am really disappointed that I didn't get my AK-47 in time, So I will probably be going again next weekend.

Everyone who is for sure in should post up, i'm still in the deciding phase.

If enough people are going, I'll go; it'd be cool to meet some of the people on here.

Alrighty. Guess I should load up some mags then. I don't have very much .223 at all, but I figure what the hell, I'll bring it anyways!

I may do more watching than shooting, but I'll bring the pistols out too....my .45 XD rarely gets to leave the house....probably feels neglected.

Thanks, guys. That was fun. Wanna thank Mike125 for setting up the targets & stands and for shooting your 12ga. Dead wood FTW! Also thank NTexas_VStar for letting me shoot your AR-15 and XD45. Always love to shoot those AR's. Oh, and that kick azz grip for your 45!! Where's the pic?!?

Can't wait for the next one, or the clay-pigeon shooting if we schedule that.

Oh, here's a video showing that grip I was trying to do today:

I agree, I had a great time. My brother wouldn't shut up about how much he liked shooting the AR; I might have to bump it up on my purchase list.

I watched the video. Are those 1911s chambered in 45? They didn't seem to kick up that much when fired. Is their grip that good or is there something that I am missing?

HAHAHA!! That pic rocks! Tactical bi-pod on the XD FTW!! lol. Just ignore the fact that it flew off on the first shot, lol.


I had a great time, it was great to meet you guys. Thanks for letting me shoot your XD .40 Ghost, I think I'm gonna get my hands on a 4" XD .45 to see if I wanna carry it. And thanks to Mike for getting the stands and all that setup....next time I'll bring a bunch of wooden pallets and maybe we can set those up with some T-posts.

And no problem on ya'll shooting the AR, I'm glad everyone enjoyed it. Now I just need to restock ammo, but hell, it was worth it.

We most definitely need to do that again. I'd probably be down for a clay shoot sometime soon. I'd like to see what Mike's shorty-shotty could do, lol. And I'd bring my cheap Mossberg. I'll look into it and post up.

Oh yea, before I forget, and since I didn't see anyone else post it up;

While we were there shooting, a truck pulls up with a couch in the back. Nothing wrong with that...just gonna un-stuff the couch, lol.

These people ran through several rounds of various weapons...shotguns, pistols, etc. Then they decided that it wasn't enough. They had not gotten XTREME enough yet (read: dumb)

They busted out the mini-dirtbike, and one dude charged the couch on the mini bike firing a full sized .45 lefthanded. I'm not making this up.

It was....interesting. When Mike, Ghost, and myself were walking back from paying, they were setting up for the second charge.

Thought I'd throw that in there before I forgot about it.

AmmuntionToGo has some good prices on thier 55gr FMJ http://www.ammunitiontogo.com/catalo...3-556-fmj-ammo

Those prices don't include shipping, but shipping was $15 for 1k of ammo. You can get Wolf steel cased ammo for cheaper, but I think I am going to take a break from Wolf to see if that cures my jamming and misfire issues.

I knew we were going to get a few laughs when that guy got out of the truck with that cheap ass pleather trench coat on.

It looks like they had a camcorder, so look for them on YouTube

And X eleventybillion on the trenchcoat...I didn't say it, but that's because I figured we were all thinking it.

Those prices don't include shipping, but shipping was $15 for 1k of ammo. You can get Wolf steel cased ammo for cheaper, but I think I am going to take a break from Wolf to see if that cures my jamming and misfire issues.
Thanks for the link.

I haven't bought from them yet (although I have heard plenty of good things about them); I normally by from www.ammoman.com. All of AmmoMan's prices include shipping so it makes shopping easy.

Meh, shit happens sometimes. I'll probably be going back Saturday afternoon, assuming my AK comes in this week. If it doesn't I will have to cancel my order, because I leave for Afghanistan on Sunday.

I would wager they were 9mm, since it was so damn fast getting back on target, but who knows. Just the technique sounds good and my CHL instructor buddy was telling me they (TX DPS) were teaching that style to the instructors when he went in for his re-certification (for instructors) a month ago.

Oh damn! Yes! Those were red-neck crazy if I ever saw! Too bad the one kid never blew himself on his a$$ firing that shotgun in that odd, lean-way-back stance.

Did y'all see Ralph (red Silverado) at the end of the range watching them when we were leaving?

I did some research on what gun Todd Jarrett is using and found this:
http://www.armedforcesjournal.com/bl...?s=2004_videos

The Todd Jarrett video is the same one posted previously, but click on the .45 shootout and Jarrett talks about the gun (last minute of the video).

looks like it is this one:

I wasn't sure if that was him or not.

Well...heck. Then I really need to learn that grip, if he's speed shooting .45 like that!

Thought it was sure. Not positive. Either way, that person was really eye-balling those yokels.
