    Not this week/weekend, Loads of O/T to be had and maybe even a Fire trip. Then we go on vacation to the Ore. coast. I'll try to catch up next time.

    Well I went to a shooting range, and I did not like it at all. I much rather prefer going to the mountain. I was also thinking we can go get food at a sit down place like Apple Bees or TGIF or somewhere along the lines of a low-priced-yet-still-good restaurant. Saturday would be ideal for me, but I have a few friends who like to join and Monday works better for them. So, Saturday or Monday?

    NOTE:

    Please be very careful when shooting up at LARCH MT. Yesterday a arrant round impacted inside the Correctional Facility parking lot, shattering an employee’s truck window. There were visitors less than 20 feet away queuing up to enter the facility to visit their Inmates. This is not the first time this has happened, we get several rounds impacting inside our perimeter every year. The gravel pit East of four corners is directly in line with Larch Correctional Facility. Please be mindful of where you shoot and know your impact area. I am amazed that no one has been hit by these arrant rounds.

    Unfortunately this is a short weekend for me so I'll be spending the day with my wife and son. I could probably talk her into letting me out for dinner on Saturday. Joe, were you thinking the Applebee's on 99th Street, next to McDonald's?

    Well Saturday is the best evening for me to get away. I work next week, appointments Thursday, drive to Cali and back on Friday, and rest on Saturday. Sounds like Mech and I can make it, maybe BW will reply later today. It's a weekend, could always see if some of the northerners wanna come down for it.

    I'm leaving for Taiwan on Tuesday, so Monday's out for me.

    If yall can pull something together for Saturday, I'll do my best to come along. I checked with my folks last night and they're unsure of how busy the weekend might be. So I'd say go ahead and make the plans without me; if I'm free tomorrow then I'll let you guys know. Otherwise, have a good time!

    Ok, let's meet at Wholesale Sports on 4th plain (so I can buy ammo) at 3:30pm. We will make it to Larch a little before 4pm. We can shoot it up for a couple of hours then head to Apple Bees on 99th St. by the I-5 overpass. Lets plan dinner at 6:30pm so we can have plenty of time for traffic and travel. I hate being rushed!!

    Sound good?

    So I called Applebee's and spoke with General Manager Aaron Hunt. I explained that we'd like to have dinner there tomorrow. I asked about whether or not his restaurant has a firearm policy. He said he'd be more than happy to have us and that restaurant policy is to follow state and federal law. He also informed me that they had a situation there once when several patrons were carrying firearms. They consumed quite a few alcoholic drinks and some other patrons were getting concerned. I told him that would not be a problem.

    Anyway, Aaron was a real nice guy and seemed open minded about firearms in his restaurant, despite a bad experience before. We'll see how things go tomorrow but I think we'll be happy to give this restaurant our business.

    Yeah, it sounded like they weren't in the lounge but were in the restaurant portion. I told him that I don't drink when I'm carrying and as far as I know, none of you would either.

    Well I don't drink in general. It's a personal choice... I certainly wouldn't drink with a gun! That's just asking for trouble.

    Hey Joe, I've managed to clear my plate enough tomorrow to make the range trip; unfortunately, my folks want me home for dinner, so it looks like I'll be bugging out after the range session.

    If you can PM me your phone number and I'll send you mine, that would be great; I screen my calls pretty heavily so I don't answer any unknown numbers.

    Or, I'll just see you at Wholesale Sports at 3:30PM.

    You can try out my 357 revolver if you want. The rounds are about 13-14 dollars for Lugar 9mm. I am not sure if they sell them cheaper if they are different brand. I shoot .38 and .357 which is about 22-27 dollars per 50. Anyways, can I get a head count for tomorrow? My wife is going to come shoot with us too, so maybe bring some extra guns!

    I'll PM you my number mech, and if anyone else needs it, let me know.

    Joe~

    3:30PM* wholesale sports! dont forget

    The goats keep the vegetation short. The hill is kind of a pain to mow.
