Jerry.

 We are heading out tomorrow too.  We look forward to visiting with you and Nicole.   I really hope the weather cooperates.

We had a grand time last year.

We are/were looking forward to seeing you and Lilly too Bob. I really hope the weather changes fast.

I really hope so. Even if it means leaving Friday, especially after talking to Jimmy on the phone. Jimmy seems like a great guy and I was hoping to meet you too Hoosier.

I am still planning to be there, unless I hear it's raining pitchforks and grindstones Saturday morning.
The airguns I bring might change though. ;)

From looking online, it still looks like it's going to rain all day Sat. and most of Sun. Have you heard anything different locally Jimmy?

Well $%(&#$, the weather looks horrible all weekend so I guess we will have to miss this one. If it wasn't 6 hours we would take the chance but...
Thanks for the invite Jimmy and I hope the weather holds back and all you guys can get some shooting in.

I am on the fence due to the weather. Targets made, spinners and knock-downs got a fresh coat of paint, sleeping bag is in the truck.
 I guess I will keep an eye on the storms. ::)

Having seen Jimmy's man cave (well, actually it's a house), it will be easy to get out of the weather if something rolls through.  I had a huge ton of fun last year, sorry I don't get to come to this one.

All my gear is staged and ready to bug out.... BUT
I Just found out I have to work.
Line 13 Extruder broke down at 1:30 and it ain't good.
 We are already 2 days behind on shipments from it and now this. Saturday mandated for my Crew and I need to be there to manage. We will be lucky to get it back together by Wednesday but  probably Friday next week.
 Welcome to my life as an Industrial Maintenance Manager. >:(

Hope it's going well for you all and your weather is better than here. Cold and rain.
Still would be better than being stuck at my desk, in here on a Saturday.
At least I can surf GTA.  ::)
Don't feel bad about it one bit since I am salary and not getting anything for it.

Somebody post some pics!

Friday definitely was the best day to shoot. Had alot of fun. Saturday morning rain had moved in but sometime that afternoon it stopped for a few.  the wife and I decided to see what her dad (Jimmy) was up to...by that time it started drizzling rain. When we pulled in Jimmy, birddog and geronimo was sitting out in it shooting! Lol...well we couldn't let them set there alone so we pulled out the rainy day rifles and shot. The drizzling rain did stop and that's when things got interesting...not so much the shooting...geronimo is a mobile gun show and just about every rifle ...has a price...just about every rifle!  I think my wife was about to buy it all..lol
She bought her a Urban in 22 and my son in law bought an urban in 22 and my daughter bought a 25cal Springer. .
It was a good time listening to them dealing..

It's raining now. We will probably still go down to the barn and set with Jimmy for a few..I still have to bring my tank and compressor up to to the house..
Wish the weather was better so more would have shown but that's the way it goes. Indiana weather gotta love it.

We rolled in Thursday afternoon.  We shot until dark, what a great place to shoot.  Jimmy and his family are very hospitable people.  We spent the night in our small camper.  Friday was beautiful and shooters started to roll in.  Would you believe I got sunburns / wind burns?

There were opportunities to shoot many fine air guns, guns that I had only read about.  The target layout was amazing, you could shot any distance that you might desire. 

It was Lilly's and my 45th wedding anniversary weekend, Jimmy and Cheryl supplied cake and ice-cream.  It was a very nice surprise and Lilly and I really can't thank them enough.

We had a good time, next year we'll have better weather.
