It's about 5 hours for me but I'd love to come down. April might be a little nippy for a tent though.

@Mark - Isn't Bob H's shoot usually around that time too?

That date is, of course, up to Bob's good graces, but the last one was one Memorial Day weekend. You may have to set your tent up in the car. :-)   
Forgot about the camping option, I have a bag that's good for it.

Ok, It looks like this is going to be a go. I talked to a couple of locals that are in. At this rate we will have a good shoot and a lot of fun. What do you guys think of a woods walk? I find them fun and something differrent. Just clangers and trip targets set down the trail.

I have a camper and can do primative!
Come April I should be more than ready to get it out of hybernation for a journey
 ;D

A camper isn't primitive! Do you have A.C., microwave and a shower in there?!!?!?

"Primitive" in camper talk is no satellite TV  ;D ;D ;D  But we better be nice to HoosierDaddy, he might have a generator to keep his toys running, and none of us will sleep! (We can set it next to Jerry's tent   ::) )

That sounds like fun!  Back in the day when I shot black powder, most of the shoots I went to were like this. ...of course, all shots were iron sights and offhand, who wants a "primitive challenge"?    Tomahawks?  Flint & steel?  (Primitive challenge as a fun option, not like the whole event would be like that.)
Besides, it would be horrible if a tree rat would be so unfortunate as to step into the line of fire..   8)

Yes, while my camper has a/c and a microwave for when there is 120V.... it can be an oxymoron to call it primative when youu go "off the grid" without any hook-ups. That to us is LP for the stove/ fridge/ furnace and lights/ waterpump are off 12V. Water is all contained wether it's fresh, black,  or grey.
Far from roughing it but my days of tent camping are long gone. ;)

Just giving you a hard time because all we have is a tent.   :-[

If had the money for a camper and somewhere to keep it, I buy one immediately.

We are making progress with this. We have 7 here and 6 locals within 20 miles of me that said they would like to come. We are going to have a good time. I would like some help planing. I have very few targets. What do you guys want to shoot? I have all winter to make some. Things we shoot are just about anything that will make a noise or swing when hit.  Bottle caps hung from string, metal hung anyway you can, spinners, malt balls set on golf tees, they poof when hit. Smell good to.
Help me out here and we can make this a fun weekend.

You can never go wrong with plastic soldiers, suckers (or hard candy), necco wafers or chalk pieces.  Any fruits or vegetables going bad? Execute them!  Save your soda cans!  I have two or three auto-reset targets (two of them are just good up to ~20ish fpe), a low power swinger and a high power swinger (made for centerfire pistol).  You can also make swingers out of old spoons from a yard sale, but I recommend you flatten the spoon end with a hammer to reduce unpredictable ricochet.

I imagine most all of us have spinners and other targets we could bring.  this way you only need to worry about your local guys having something to shoot at.

Having the place to shoot is the most important part and you having that covered is fantastic.

Not to mention that Binford aka Steelplinkers is in Indiana, and I'm sure he would be happy to sell us a few of his top notch targets!  :-)  (And I'm not exaggerating at all when I say top notch, his targets are friggin' works of art. They will also take the pounding of my 50fpe rifle like I was shooting spitwads.)

I have 3-4 election signs that work great for taping targets to. Each one holds four 8 x 11" targets.

Hey guys,

Ben from Steelplinkers here,

We are just a short drive from north Vernon, about a half hour.

I have no idea how the dates will work out, but my wife and I would be interested.  Might even camp if you have trees, we sleep in any weather  ;D

I'll work something out with Jimmy about targets, even if we can't stay and shoot I'm sure I can atleast provide something fun to shoot at.

Thanks Ben!  It would be awesome to have you come out and play with us!  I'll have to give Dave at R Arms a call and see if he can make room on his crowded social calendar. :-)

You must be close. I live 8 miles south of North Vernon just 2 miles off 3 on 750 south. You can find me on Google. I am in the middle of no where.
     Ben mentioned having a field target course.  He said if we wanted to shoot a FT course he would bring the targets to shoot at. We can keep it casual and just shoot through to learn how that is done. Or what ever you guys want to do. Let me know, I will have to check with Ben and find out what I need to do to make a course. Myself I would love to see what shooting FT is all about.
    For sure, the shoot is on. I have several people that are coming for sure. Everyone is welcome. Get the word out, it is going to be fun. Bring your shooting equipment, and something to eat, just in case my wife will not fix us something.
