Canopy's are an option. We only have enough room for about 15-6 full canopy's. We line them up along the shooting line. First come first server sort of speak. Some folks will have room to share. You can bring your favorite targets to shoot if you like but last year we had over 700 targets out there plus shoot n see stickers for the back boards.

Not even. As it stands, the police always visit anyway. But their visits are always pleasant. We don NOT want to change that. Plus the neighbors (inside the city limits) would probably have us put UNDER the jail.

I had gone to a shoot with my son in West Virginia.  At the end of the competition, the host loaded a cannon with a bowling ball and fired it off.  Very powerful, very loud, and once was enough for me.  The ball went into the woods about 200 yards away after going probably 200 or 300 feet high.  There were no close neighbors and it is a good thing.  As a side note, we were all shooting WWII fire arms from the US and Europe; and the targets were from 50 to 400 yards.

To answer the question:  The police, the neighbors or me?  <---Here, it would be my police department that would have trouble with that kind of joke.

you guys are aware that the 11th is mother's day, and being that most of us did not come out of an egg, we might have to come up with some cock eyed story.... (but then again, we hunt, so "embellishing " might not be so rare after all...). No really, my wife will kill me...

Lucky for me I live in Travelers Rest, SC.  I can just drive down Saturday morning for all the fun and games.  Since I am very new to GTA I am looking forward to meeting some of the folks from these forums.  How early does the activity start at these things?

I don't care what I gotta do, I'm going to try my hardest to be there.  Only 875 miles for me.  That sounds like 12 hours of driving.  Not that bad.

Wow....shaping up to be some great raffle and door prizes available at the Fun Shoot. Already getting donation sent and promises by some. Will be some NICE airguns available to buy raffle tickets for.
How about a TAU-200 Senior Laminate? We're talking a retailing new for $850 Co2 target gun. :)
How about a new Trail NP Limited .22 with a GRT-III installed? And I'm thinking when I get this one in hand, since it looks like a Phantom style stock, seeing if it will slide into a Remington Summit stock. I will toss that in if the winner prefers a nice wood stock over the synthetic one.
How about a new Benjamin Regal Nitro? If it fits, will install a GRT-III in it too. I bet it will work.
How about a new Powerline Target Pro 953?
How about a custom made set of Walnut grips to fit the Crosman 13XX, 22XX, 23XX, 24XX series?
Oh, and rumors are there will be a new .25 MRod on the raffle table also. :)
Just getting started, I haven't even put out my request to most of our vendor/members. This year is shaping up to be a most excellent event. Dave (grumpy) and his wife Nancy have volunteered to cook up the Saturday meal. Should be most excellent.
I look to having more very good raffle items and hope to have at least one door prize for each attendee. Maybe more!!!
Make your plans to be there. Should be a most excellent time, as usual.
See ya'll there!!!
