Title: South Carolina Fall Fun Shoot
Post by: Gene_SC on September 18, 2008, 01:05:00 AM


Hey guys, are we gonna have another GreatFUN SHOOTagain before Old Man Winter Sets In?? Would sure love to hear some input on this. We all had so much fun on the last one that we gotta have another one.

Question is WHEN AND WHERE? Any ideas? Anyone care to take charge of organizing it? Lets see some hands guys and gals...:)

Big Daddy Gene, It would be a pleasure to take part in organizing another fun shoot. Got two large Boston-Butts in the freezer, and a very well-seasoned smoker for some BBQ. I could be the catoring chairman!!!! What ever I can do, just let me know. tjk

Gee, tjk... I had no idea you were one of the South Carolina crew.

 Did we manage to put our shoes on the correct feet and wipe the drool from our face before goin' outside to plant turnips and whup our kids today?

 JUST KIDDING, for God's sake. Don't get all angry! I'm sorry, I'm sorry! Aaaaaaaah!

Gene,

 That anything like shrimp 'n grits? I'd kill for some of that.

 Actually I lived in the low country a few years back. HH, Daufuski Island, and up in Columbia. Spent a couple of years right across the line in Savannah and Tybee Island too.

 And seein' as how I'm in Oklahoma, I guess I have no right, or every right, depending on how you look at it, to poke fun at y'all. We okies not only have no book learnin', but no common sense either!

 Sounds fun, though.

 Seeya,
 Parks

 PS: Man, those are some FUNNY pictures!

I was wondering where my grill went.
Title: Count me in....
Post by: Bhawanna on September 18, 2008, 02:16:07 AM
gene, i posted something about this several weeks ago looking for a "place" and got no responses.  looks like finding a place is going to be the biggest obstacle.  finding a place that we can have "facilities for the women" and can shoot up to 50 yards is a little difficult.  your backyard was great...is it still available?....count me in wherever we have it.  i'll bring targets, crown, cigars and whatever else you need for me to do......

What part of Bama are you in? I'm in Daphne, which is in the SE corner, Mobile area, and I'm always looking for more people to shoot with.

Ed, I think Roger and Timmy share that BBQ. If you notice the picture was taken in Roger's back yard and for sure that is Tim's toast on the sticks... LOL Gene

As much as I enjoyed Gene's shoot, S. Ga is just too much driving at 4.00 bucks a gallon.  If Gene  has it at his place I'll be there.
Title: Re: South Carolina Fall Fun Shoot
Post by: tjk on September 18, 2008, 01:42:31 PM
OK then, as soon as I hear when and where, I'll burn a few vacation days, borrow a pick-up, and head south!!! Have tent, will travall, Along with the smoker, grill (if I bring the Gas Burner on a tag-a-long), Cooler, lawn chairs, etc,etc,etc.!!! tjk

I’ll try to be there no matter what location is decided on.  The wife and my trusty dog Bubba are always up for a road trip in our comfy RV.  I’ll make sure to bring an extra grill and hearing protection in case the big bores are active..

Southern Georgia might be feasible but if on the east coast I don't know that I'll have the dough.  I'm still paying for this Weihrauch 90.  I'd love to be able to take a little time off and attend.  I'll bring my prized 350 Mag(poo-poo starter) with me.  My Gamo's are pretty nice too!  I've got a tent, a couple sleeping bags, whisperlight stove and everything needed for the road trip!

man, I hope this works out.  I missed last years'!

Post by: Curioguy on September 20, 2008, 04:09:55 AM
I’msure I can make it any time in October. My first choice is Fix’s place in Brunswick (my wife and Bubba like the Georgia cost) but I’ll try and make it wherever the majority decides.(http://../jscripts/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-cool.gif)

Looks like Im gonna be leaving Wends. for Alabama. Gonna go do some work on my Moms Mountain house. Not shure how long Im gonna stay. Had lunch with her today & she said Im welcome to host a get together fun shoot there!! :D  She has a 5 acre lot with a HUGE deck overlooking a 50 acre lake!! (Big Bores would be welcome!!) 8)  It would be too far for most of the S.C. Gang Im afraid,, but better for others?? Besides,,, I dont recall any rules that say we cant have TWO Fun Shoots!! :p  Good idea Mike,, but,,, I was WAY ahead of Ya Buddy!!LOL!! I,ll post up some pics. when I get there!! Its in Ft. Payne Al.,, way up in the north of the state in the mountains. Just a thought..... Well,, I,ll bet Mike (Splash) will come shoot with me!! He He!!  :)  Tim.

Yeah Tim, I can probably make it to the opposite corner of the state. I believe there are a few members, in the B'ham area as well.

Mike, you are welcome to hangten off the bumper of ol Betsy. Don’t be too worried about speed, cuz just the other day I could only get her up to 42mph heading down I-10. Not much room in the back but you’re welcome to snuggle with Bubba in the front cab. Warning though, he gets real affectionate in the middle of the night, if you know what I’m talking about. (http://../jscripts/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-surprised.gif)But he sure is cut, right? (http://../jscripts/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-wink.gif)

Post by: SweetCrazyOne on September 20, 2008, 01:16:35 PM
Maybe we could have an "GTA shoot"& offer in several state regions. I'm not sure how far some of us could afford to drive to. Gas is very expeinsive & doesn't look to be going down anytime soon. I wouldn't mind traveling to Alabama or Georgia but if your traveling out of state you have to have a place to stay or to park. LOL I know some could even share rides & share expenses. You know I could even stay here in SC. I know how the female tag along throws things outta wack.:0  
Good luck on finding a location!

Come on guys and gals fix if fixing to have the shoot at his place. Paul, I’m willing to



come in a day or two early to help you setup if it’s a go. I have a 5th wheel trailer



that I’ll be pulling and will probably stay at a campground in your area. That way



others coming in will have a place to sleep.

I was hoping that someone here in S.C. would hold the Fun Shoot this fall. I had talked to Roger early on and he suggested a fall shootout and said he would help out the best he could. I am sorry that I cannot hold the event this fall but for sure next spring I should be able to hold another S.C. Fun Shoot. I hope someone could pick up the stick here and run with it. We all had such a good time at the last one, it would be a shame if we could not have another one before old man winter arrives.. We do not need that much room to shoot. Just need a place to sit and some targets and they do not have to be 60 yards out either to have fun...:) I know I would enjoy any type of shooting event. Remember it is all about having fun. Showing off our babies. Chewing the fat and meeting new members. Come on you guys here in S.C. lets figure out how and where to hold this event. Gene

J & I have been talking about a fall fun shoot. We held one last year at him mom's place.  I felt that some were not happy with how it was organised. J has 5 acers, with trails & some cleared areas. We would like to be able to host but we would need some help & some ideas on what ya'll would like to do. I have my own ideas but I have only been to a few shoots. The few shoots I have been to weren't as good as the one at Genes or even at J' moms.
1) Kids fun shoot
2) different targets on trails
3) Bench shooting

What do ya'll think & what kind of ideas do ya'll have?
Title: Re: South Carolina Fall Fun Shoot
Post by: Gene_SC on October 08, 2008, 11:13:28 PM
Sherry, I would just like to get together with everyone and shoot, chew the fat and watch J fire off dim BIG BORES...)  Different targets would be cool. I could bring a few of my home made ones. I could bring sodas and other goodies. The shootouts are just fantastic. I enjoy them immensely.
