Folks,

I've been watching this thread with interest, the date doesn't work for Lilly and I.  We flatlanders need to get together more often.  BTW, we were at Mike Melick's shop and I bought a FWB 124 for Lilly.  It is a left hand model,,, and so is Lilly.

Thank you for thinking of us.

Sorry you guys can't make it, I may try to do another in the spring also. Going to see how the first one works out here then go from there. 1st time having anything out here like this. I have a good amount of open space. Just shy of 3 acres, bonus is my nearest neighbor is a half mile or more down the road. Bonus also if you see a ground squirrel and the shooting lane is clear. Have at that little buggers. 😁

I just picked up a new to me rifle so  who’s up for a group NUAH? This gun should do great at 100+. Had to slum and put weaver T-36.

I'm in!!! Doubtful my gun are, but I'll give it a shot.
But I'll probably just be a witness to your attempt/success. I have some election signs for taping up targets way out there. What new gun did you pick up Steve?

And sorry you can't make it Bob. It won't be the same without you and Lilly, plus a timed can shoot.

And anyone can use it to try for the NUAH.
The little pill is the .177  16.2 gr that I shoot out of the Wolverine.

I plan on attending, any idea on times yet?

I had just finished putting FX no limit rings and zeroing the scope on my Streamline for some 100yd shooting. Did something stupid and broke the rifle. Totally my fault. Don't ask, too embarrassing. Now it's at SPAW being repaired. If the weather cooperates I may try 100 with my Marauder and just use hold over.

Looking forward to meeting you all

Haven't figured out a time exactly yet but I was planning on a afternoon into the evening shoot. Say 10 am til dark or something in that range. Adjust it as it gets a bit closer to date. I wouldn't mind getting in on 100 yard or more targets. Anyone have a air compressor that they can bring? Thinking drink and snacks will be a bring your own just to keep it simple. Dish to pass if you would like. If you have a canopy please let me know. I have a screened in shelter house. I have a extra fridge in the garage if you want to store cold drink or snacks.

How are you set for shooting benches? I have 2 sets of saw horses (taller than normal) that I use for moving around and a couple of  stools if you need them.

Will we be able to back a car or truck up to the shooting area? Trying to decide how much "stuff" to bring.

Yes should be able to, address is 6539 w rink Rd Lena IL, 61048 if you would like to look at Google maps of the property. Should be able to either make a big semi circle or have multiple ranges at different locations.
