Ok,

as i was just laid off of work 2 weeks before the GTA fun shoot, i obviously won't be able to attend.  Lets try and have our own.  i understand it will only be 3-10 folks and thats ok!  just a day where we can all get together and shoot somewhere.

I don't have anywhere local to me where i could do such a thing, but i'd love to do it.  thoughts?

I'm in western PA.  judging by the GTA location map we have quite a few over here... chime in folks

I'm not near you, but wouldn't it be great if the GTA had branches all across the USA with small fun shoots in every state?  with one central national funshoot.  maybe hold shooting competitions to fund everything. just imagine if nobody had to travel more than an hour to take part in an airgun shoot competition/funshoot.  where they could interact with fellow airgun enthusiasts and buy, sell, and trade gear.

well that's where I see things going, and hopefully what you are trying to do will be a part of it.

Ed, There are some guys near Uniontown putting together a fun shoot .... that's only about an hour away.  I think they are looking at June or July.  I also recall Ohio locals working on one, as well as Pyramid will do theirs again in August or September.  I'll keep you posted.

Now, let's get your priorities straight, forget fun shoots, let's get you some work.  I know a lot people here in the Pittsburgh area, and might be able to get you an interview somewhere.  Why don't you PM me, tell me what you do/did for a living, salary requirements etc..  Not promising anything, but will help if I can.
