Brian from The Woodlands

Not sure that I can make it as I won't know my schedule until about 10 days out.

Couple of rifles, couple of Glocks may find their way to BCS with me, but I really need to get to the range soon so that I don't embarass myself in front of everyone. ;J

How close is parking to the actual line? Will the vehicles be within sight at all times? I'm not comfortable having a bunch of weapons stashed in the car if I can't see it.

Also, is this open to non-GT members? Some of the folks I ride with may be interested.

I've made it to the DFW meet at Backwoods, the (1st) NFA meet at the Trinity and meet in Andice, I suppose I could make this one too... ;f

I only have a Mossy 12ga, Glock 32 and a MAK 90 at the moment.

Anyone else in the Lewisville area wanna car pool?

EDIT : I guess it would help to read the original post huh?

Guys, RichardH247 is looking to FLY into DFW Airport from Phoenix on Friday, and I'm wondering if anybody in the Dallas area would be willing to help him get set up with a hotel there (and transport from DFW to the hotel, whether it be a hotel shuttle or you picking him up or whatever) and then let him bum a ride down to Bryan and back the next day. Thanks.

Also, what do y'all think about having each person pay a couple bucks extra (exact price depending on how many people show up) for us to have that banquet room for an hour or so lunch? I think it's worth it for the A/C. I'm gonna try to get something lined up for food too. Still working on that one...

Hey, what happened to the picture of you riding a motorcycle and wearing a drysuit?

To answer your questions, the firing line is very close to the parking area. The cars will probably be about 50 feet from the firing line, and all will be visible. You won't have to worry about not being able to see your car.

And yeah, we'd love to have anybody come out! However, I'd like to maybe keep it contained to direct friends of GT members, so we're all still interacting as a group. I remember at the Andice shoot, apparently some AR-15.com folks got invited, and it wound up segregating into basically two different shoots at the same site. Since I haven't run this by the owner and since I'll be giving him a better attendance estimate (based on posts here), it might be best to not wind up with two different events at the same place. But yeah...I'm certainly encouraging my friends to come. ^c

Hi Ghetto. If schedule permits, I may be able to offer the carpooling services. I'm in the Friendswood area, so it's relatively close to you. Bad thing is I'm not sure if can make it because I'm in the middle of planning a trip. I will know as time progresses.

It was too big so I substituted a more appropriate shooting photo.

OK guys. The shoot's coming up in a month. Time to start bringing things together a bit and finalizing it all. I'll do a "roll call count" later on tonight if I get a chance, but for now, I wanted to check on a few outstanding things I saw in the thread. I want to do whatever possible to make sure as many people can come as possible, but I can't do it alone.

If so, I will need a pick up at the airport and drop off, plus a hotel room, all of which I will graciously tip for. I can fly from Phoenix to any airport if someone is willing to give me a ride from the closest hotel to the range and back (and have some beers on me afterward!).

My name is Richard, and my friend's name will be either Camy or Jennifer (or both). I will not post pics of them on the Internet, however, but I will of myself.

Also, I only have use of one leg, so I will probably sit there and drink beer more than I will shoot. But I know both Camy and Jenn will take full advantage of the offered course. KEEP HANDS OFF OF THEM, lol. I'll even buy lunch (steaks!) for everyone. I need a vacation.

Can anyone point me to a good airport where you'll pick us up Friday night and then drop us back off on Sunday? I'll pay you for the effort. Also need a good hotel; nothing fancy, just a bed and place to shower and have coffee.
Richard, did anyone ever step up to the plate and try to help you with airport pickup and transportation to Bryan? Guys, if anyone could do this, I think it'd be really nice, esp. since it looks like Richard's willing to pay quite a bit to come to this.

No, sir, no takers yet. No biggie if it can't happen.

I guess I should have been clearer with my response. I think that we definitely need the room with AC.
I live on the NW side of Houston, so it's a fairly short drive for me.

Not sure now if I can make it or not. Found out just now I'm being sent to New York for a couple weeks starting July 25th, which means I'll probably be flying back on the 6th of August.

Sounds like there isn't quite as much interest as I'd hoped for and as people had expressed in the unofficial "Time to plan another Texas GT shoot" thread.

turn out

15 sounds like a lot to me. Especally with a shotgun side match. I assumed we would do all this in one day. I'd like to head back to Austin by 5PM.

Will there be "safety officers" or this an informal shoot?
That is... it takes time to run everyone through a stage.

just my $.02

I'm not sure what you mean by shotgun side match. There won't be any "range officers" per se. It's an open range where you just have to conduct yourself responsibly. Everything is in view of the range shop though, so I'm sure they have to tell people to quit being stupid from time to time. But what I like about ranges like this is you can do whatever kind of shooting you want to, not just the stupid "stand there still and fire at the target downrange" kind of thing. But about the shotgun stuff and "stages"... There IS a separate shotgun area with clays and traps and whatnot (not something that I'm into), but we don't have any firm plans for using that. I'm sure you could do it if you wanted to, but I'm more interested in "practical shotgun shooting" on the pistol range, where you shoot at stationary targets on the ground rather than flying clays. Not sure if that makes sense...let me know if I can clear this up any further.

Thanks for the explanation. I was trying to get a feel on how this will go down as I have never attended one of your events.

The “shotgun side-match” is what the club I shoot with calls practical shooting with a shotgun. We set up a standard pistol type COF using steel instead of paper targets. Then with a shotgun we naturalize steel targets / poppers. I guess they call it a side match because it uasually follows the day's IDPA shoot. So it's an extra (uasually one COF ran twice for best time)event to the IDPA shoot.

I am a safe shooter. The “safety officer” comment was to determine if this will be a “competition” shoot or just messing around with guns. Either way, I’m in.
