My only free Saturday this month is October 26th, the 12th I have to run a open house for my legion Post. 26th gives me time to get porta potty and more targets made up.

The 26th sounds good here. Hopefully the weather cooperates this time.

Sweet!If you are going through the expense of getting a porta potty, I think we should all pitch in a little to help pay for it.

Oh yeah, I got some of those bottle blast caps too! I'll bring them, as I don't have too many to use them. The 26th should work for me.

We'll have to get our pooch out of the area before those get hit.

I'll be bringing a bunch of .22 cal JSB, H&N, and Crosman pellets to sell, trade, or just share (even Hades). The JSB 18 gr and 25 gr pellets shoot the best for me, the others are just taking up space in my drawers so I'd like to get rid of them.

Same here, so far the day isn't looking to bad. May be a tad windy but I can deal with a little wind. Long as it's not storming again it's green light to shoot. Will adjust targets so wind isn't affecting them. Corn is being harvested so on your way out please everyone watch for deer!

Thanks for the heads up on the deer.
Is everyone bringing their own food (sandwich...)? My wife was going to make brownies and bring some big bags of chips but I don't know what anyone is planning on. If anyone is BBQing we could bring better stuff but with the weather is hard to know what to make.

I have a grill i can bust out if anyone wants to grill up some food. Who is all coming out? Trying to get a idea for headcount, Got the portable toilet being dropped off tomorrow. will start putting out targets tomorrow. Parking will be in grass north of house. I will try to mark it out sometime. If you need two get a hold of me you can text me at eight one five 990 SEVEN NINE five 2. I can talk but when i am on the phone with new people i get MS brain fog and freeze up lol sorry. But if need be i can talk. I only have a hand pump for air. If someone want to bring out a pump let me know and i can run a extension cord out. Might do it anyways so everyone can charge phones and ect. Please bring something to drink, otherwise i will have cold water on hand. If you have any Medical issues the closest hospital is 25 or so minutes away. Please do not forget to bring any medications with you. Cant wait to meet all of you and perhaps do this again in spring if it works out

Thanks for doing this! I am planning to be there. What time should we start arriving? I almost bought a Hatsan Spark pump the other day, but then something came up (literally when I was about to hit the "order" button!) and I've had to put it to the side for now.
