Thanks BB.   I know it's short notice but creek water has that effect.   I'd like to plan a bigger fun shoot later in the year with more notice for you long distance folks.  Covid-19 killed the last one.
Disclaimer.... This is not GTA relateded.   Just good folks enjoying common airgun interests

I get it Cap... it's short notice.
Betty Lou and I will be here shooting and y'all are welcome to join. No special plan. We'll figure it out as it goes.

Oh man!  I have my daughter coming into town for the weekend, or I would have been there for sure!  I really want to check out your new place and the new & improved airgun range! 

I love my daughter and love seeing her, but when she comes to town, my days are filled with cooking!  She sends a list of her favorits ahead of time, so we have time to shop and do all the prep work!  This weekend I'll be grilling Chicken Fajitas, Royal Reds, Salmon, Oysters and smoking a Meatloaf!  Oh, and all this in one weekend!   :o

I think it may be a better idea to plan something during my shutdown. It will be begin on June 27 for 2 weeks.
I'll check with Betty Lou and we'll give a sooner notice.
Paul, yes we definitely want you to come.

Can't make it this weekend.  I might be up in Geneva/Samson Al in a couple of weeks.  Definitely sounds like Paul needs to be there.  Reminds me of the old Southern Baptist mantra, "If you feed them, they will come!" ;D

Paul, what are Royal Reds?

Just going up for a quick visit with the In-laws.  Hopefully get to do some pesting and maybe try getting into the NUAH club using the old chicken houses to block the wind.  Never shot my airguns at over 35 yds or off of a table/rest before. ;D

Paul, what are Royal Reds?

Shrimp!  They are amazing!  I'm surprised you've not heard of them, the are from the Gulf from the Florida Panhandle to the Mississippi coast, in deep cool waters between 800 and 1,500 feet down.  They don't range as far south as where you are, but you'd think you could still get them there.

Paul, yes we definitely want you to come.

I will do my best, let me know the projected date as soon as you can so I can clear it with the Boss and make sure we don't have other commitments!

Thanks Paul.  We had some huge red shrimp at a restaurant last year, we asked about them and were told they were from South America.  The wife has been buying them in the store but they are just labeled red shrimp.   ;D

I asked by better half how she'd feel about a weekend in Alabama (with the requisite explanation why... :o) and she was all for it then she reminded my of my 12 hour "leash" - 6 hours each way. She was referring to me giving my mom her insulin shots twice a day. That sort of put a damper on my planning but I wish you guys tons of fun and I want pictures!!!!

If only. That sounds like a really good weekend. Just too far from Aotearoa. Please post lots of photos. Plenty of the guys and the women wearing cowboy hats
