Brandon I turkey hunt just north of you in Monroe WI.

As a new member, I would love to participate. I joined to learn more about air, and think meeting other members would be great.

Weekends are best for me, but I could make a weekday if needed.

Hope to see you at the next fun shoot. Lots of nice people and you can try out nice guns too.

Thanks Tater. Getting to try some nice rifles would be great. I am planning to get a pcp, but not sure how much I need to spend. I go from a Maximus to a HW100 price range, but struggle with spending a lot on an air gun vs another powder burner.

Once you spend the money up front for the gun, pellets are a lot cheaper than bullets to shoot. :)

Not to mention the never ending ammo assembly line. I need to get back at it. I have bunches primed and ready to load.

But my Geo LDC will show up today in the mail so I will be able to stretch out my 1300kt as far as 80 in the backyard.  Woohooo!

The little thing with the Walther barrel is way more accurate than I can shoot.

I've been reading this thread with interest.  My wife and I would be up for a road trip.  We'd like to bring our Daisies and come play.  I hope our schedules can match up.  We are ready for this virus stuff to be behind us.

Same here. Should be able to make it no matter what.
It was pretty cold last time there, we are all due for a nice day out.

We're getting close. Been keeping the field nice and short. Should have plenty of targets for a fun shoot now. Just need virus to end...
