Great stuff Roger. I am in need of some Blallistol. Ernie drank most of the Ballistol that Tommy got me for Christmas..:) I may be looking for a scope but not sure about a new gun. Depends on what you have..:) I hope it is first come first serve..:) I will be there early..:)

Looking forward to seeing you again Roger. We had a great time last time we met.

Well guyz and galz (I assume).  My name is Tom/TAJ45, newbie to air stuff, been invited to the shoot at Tim's on John's Island by Tcups.  We almost crossed paths when he needed some primers as my son lives in Columbia and we were heading that way from Beaufort.  So, as shooters do, we got to chatting and Tommy spoke of an upcoming 3 day w/e blast.  Tommy is vacationing on HHI so I invite him to the range I frequent etc and so forth.  Not sure if he'll be able to get a kitchen pass for that Thurs night or not.

If it is OK with Tim, I will show up at Tommy's request as wife is going out of country on a mission trip so just me and the cats.  Will only be day tripping as we have church Sun.  Have an R9 for sale, blue lam stock,  I will bring w/o sights (don't know where I stashed them when I mounted the scope) but they're around here somewhere.  Now have an R1 iirc with a scope that'll get down to ag distances.  Tommy said centerfire or rimfire is OK too so would like to bring some of that along IF OK with host.

Creds:?  NRA Life ' 76, SC CCW instructor cert pending, BE shooter, BR shooter (kinda), IPSC shooter/instructor on occasion, NRA Pistol Instructor.........love to teach.  Charleston Naval Shipyard official refugee, lived W of Ashley after Mt Pleasant and looked Hugo in the eye.  Was a member of Palmetto Gun Club in Chas when living up there.  I be just an all around good guy............big grin............like to have safe fun on the range.

Have 2350 posts on the Varminthunters.com board and less than 500 on Rimfire Central.  Have never stiffed anyone on an internet sale but have been stiffed for several hundred $$  ONCE.  Looking fwd to retirement once B. O. sends me enough stimulus but until then will continue machining metal to pay the bill$ and support more illegals..........   :((

I realize this should probably go on the main forum..............will try to find my way over there but seems germaine to the John's Island shoot.

If anyone needs any 7 1/2 Rem BR primers, I have a few and can bring with...............Also, Timmy, what should I bring to add to the larder?  Don't have any hogs to butcher for the BBQ but now that I think about it, I have a neighbor that keeps buying ckickens to feed the 'yotes so could pot a couple of those but I don't do feathers, as in plucking................ but can bring some drinks, being a Pepsi man...........I may drink a girley drink but I don't shoot no girley pistols.....heh heh.

Hey, Tom!

Welcome also to the GTA site!

Sure -- bring a few of the small rifle primers.  I think I finally have everything I need to start working up some .223 Rem target rounds.  And for sure, I can use some of your expertise and instruction in both shooting and reloading.  

Have you ever seen or shot any big bore air rifles?  You will meet a few "interesting" folks at Timmy's shoot, including my "special friend", J.   J likes really big air guns He does a little metal working too, as do Gene Curtis and Bob Werner, so you will be right at home.  Timmy is more the woodworking type (and J is no slouch either, when it comes to woodworking), but hey, you need both friends with all kinds of skill sets if you are going to get serious with the "hobby", no?  I understand Roger is bringing in some new glass for us to play with as well.  So, you are warned in advance that you will be falling in with a "diverse" bunch of folks who all  have one thing in common.  We love to shoot.

Glad you can make it and looking forward to  meeting yet another on-line friend face to face.  It is always a good time when we get together at Timmy's.  Thank you, Timbo for hosting yet again!  Can't wait until next weekend.
