Jesse,

Get up with Robin, he has come down to our last two shoots in Cross.  He is from Simpsonville.  Our next shoot is on February 11th.

Al

thx Al,
i saw robin was close, will pm him this evening,

funny how dates line up,
2/11 is my second 45th birthday.

what time is the event? might cajole the family into letting that be my present, and we celebrate either the 12th, or 10th.

summerville, eh?
or is it cross? (which i am guessing is near summerville

Cross is located between Lake Marion and Lake Moultrie, about 20 miles off of I95.

It is about 30 miles from my home in Summerville.

thx for the tip on where to find the photos,

a few questions:
1) what distances, in general
2) b.y.o.t. (&T)?? (bring your own tent, (and table)) - just wondering how much kit id need to pack, set up, and then take down.
3) how much air? i have a little 90 cu inch CF tank, and three cylinders to go on the gun
4) usual start/stop times?

i am working for the date in march,
and we are moving in march anyways, so april will be pretty busy domestically
may will be getting almost hot (to me)

so feb 11th seems a dream.
just trying to visualize things better, to decide  if i want t campaign to be away from wife/kids on my birthday (it IS mine, right? not theirs???)
and celebrate on sunday instead.

will definitely come some/often, looking forward to meeting folks, and learning a lot.

I usually set up targets  at 25, 50 ,75,and 100 yards. Some 10-15. Tree line is 105yards. Bring your own targets. First time you can shoot some of ours. I got a bunch of those plastic cardboard election signs to tape targets to. Collect them day after the election.

I bring a couple of foldeing tables and chairs and a pop-up tent overhead canopy.

I use a shot bag and some bricks to shoot off or a Caldwell tac driver bag.

I try to bring less guns but it still usually gets to be 10-12, ammo, tools, Extra scopes if one breaks. Water and snacks. There is a store a few miles away and a public restroom at a boat ramp a couple miles away. Some t.p. in case the restroom is out.

We try to get there by 9am but you get there when you can. Last time I couldn't make it till 1030. Start packing up about an hour before dark or when you tired or have to be home.

I don't shoot pcp. You'll have to ask the other guy's about air. It want be a big problem. Bring a hand pump if you have one. One guy has an electric pump.

My trunk and back seat are full  when I come.

You can shoot any gun I got. Most guys are the same. You can learn a lot or learn it your way. Fun stuff. It ain't competition. Usually 4-6 guys and a couple of gals. Lots of fun talk so bring a thick skin.

Later, Tim.

Hey James, I shoot with the guys and gals in Cross, S.C., I grew up in Charleston but have lived in Savannah, Ga for many years. I checked the map and you're about 170 miles from Cross. It's a 130 miles for me. 2.5-3 hours.

Our next shoot is Sept. 2nd. We took a couple of months off for the heat. If you want to GPS it, 440 Arch Dr., Cross, S.C. Between Santee and Moncks Corner. I 26 to U.S. 301, across to Santee, then S.C. 6 to Cross.

If you go back up this page you'll see where I told a guy what we do and what to bring if you have it. If not we got room and stuff you can use. Also if you go back to the S.C. Fun Shoot thread you see our thread, Big Als' Low Country Fun Shoot. Check in and say hey. About page 3-8 has a lot of pictures of us shooting. I'm the really good looking guy with red hair.

I'm planning to go up Friday night and get a room at the Econlodge, cheap, so I can get to the range early. If I leave on Saturday I can't get there till late then 3 hours home.

I'll PM you a phone number if you want to talk about it. Look forward to meeting you.
