I had a great time Jimmy.   Please say thank you again to the women who did the grilling.

Thank you for hosting.   I did get a few photos and will get them edited and posted.

Saturday was even better than Friday. Good food, stories containing a modicum of truth and bushel of embellishment, everybody shooting somebody else's gun, things exploding, trading and gawking....

add in good food and perfect weather and it was awesome!  Having to leave came much too soon, but real life is unforgiving in that respect.

I will have to downsize my pictures, but I will get them up at my first convenience, probably a few days.

Here is a link to the photos I took.  I was only able to make it for a few hours on Saturday, so not many photos.  I also tested out the GoPro (clone) that I bought a couple months ago.

And here are the shots I grabbed.  https://www.dropbox.com/sh/1a1rtavp0rdoszh/AAB5fgXCrOJXu8F59izUMZoma?dl=0

It was too much fun to mess around taking pictures all day! :-)

It sounds like we may have another go at this next year, Jimmy promised the weather will be as good as it was this year.  (We need to put him in charge of weather for the GTA fun shoot, da man got connections LOL)

Did I mention he even had an onsite compressor???  I don't know how many guys actually needed it, but how cool is that??

Wow, I am wore out. We had a great time this weekend. I want to thank everyone that come out to the first Southern Indiana Pellet Fling. We  had a great time, The weather was perfect. I can say for sure this group of people are the best there are. Not one person did not ask if there was something they could do. Not one didn't ask if anyone wanted to shoot their guns. Bob H, and his lovely wife showed us a game they play with tin cans that is one of the funnest things I have ever done with a pellet gun. By the way they gave us all a little spanking with their shooting. Don't let those two  fool you with their easy slow tone. When they set down with an airgun they are all that and a cup of coffee.
We got to make some new friends that I can hardly wait to see again. I got to shoot some air rifles I can only dream of owning. And some that have been tweeked to perfection. No matter what you were shooting if you needed anything someone was there with it or something you could use. Geronimo must have had 300 lbs. of pellets. I have never seen so many. He just set them down and said if anyone wants to try a different, pellet here they are.
To all that did not get to come. You really missed a good time. But everyone that did said they would like to do it again next spring. So the Second Sat. of April 2018 will be the 2nd. Southern Indiana Spring Fling. It will be held here at the barn again. Mark your calenders, it will be a great start to the shooting season.

Thanks again to all that came and all that helped,

Jimmy

Jimmy,

Lilly and I want to thank you for allowing us to attend.  You have a wonderful place to shoot.  You and your family are terrific hosts.  You all treated us as if were family.  There were so many fine rifles available to see.  The weather was perfect.  Lilly and I could not have asked for a better outing.  There were many GTA members there,  I still don't have the faces and names tied together.

I believe there were some very nice rifles that found new owners. 

We look forward to returning for the 2018 'Fling.  I'll bring my padded shorts, 'cause I might get  whooping'.

Again, thank you so much for your hospitality.

Mark,

Thank you for setting down and shooting pistols with me.  That is one fine pistol you were shooting and you were shooting it well.  It is alway a pleasure to visit with you.  (His can kicked my can.)
