    I think a cookout would be cool. Some ribs and chicken or something.

    Any ideas when you guys would like to get together? I'm thinking maybe do a lunch in the first week of February. I know Saturday's are usually the best for most people. We just need to find a time and place, so lets get some ideas going.

    BTW: Jerry if you want you me and my buddy can get together for lunch if you would like, and we could always use anther range buddy. Just let me know.

    Sounds like 901 place . I used to live there when I first moved down here. I'm only a mile away around the corner so I'd definitely be in for a local meet up and possibly handing out fliers.

    Kevlar, PM sent.

    Okay guys I'm suggesting the lunch meet up for Feb. the 5th at 12 p.m.
    So far the OC friendly places are-
    Cracker Barrel
    Chick Fila
    Starbucks
    Firehouse subs
    Arby's
    Subway
    bruggers bagel's

    If you guys have any other ideas for places I'm open to suggestions. My first pick is Cracker Barrel, good service, OC friendly and reasonably priced. Let me know what you guys think.

    Count me in. Cracker Barrel sounds good to me.

    Is that the one off of I-85 by Billy Graham?

    So where does everyone go to shoot?
    I'm in east charlotte.

    I don't like firepower in matthews. I go when I really have the urge for killing paper, but that is maybe every 6 months to a year.

    Are there any places in charlotte with a good indoor range, and possibly a long range area?
    I have heard good thing about Shooters Express, but it is almost an hour from me.
    I have never heard of Elite Training Academy.
    Are there any clubs in the area?

    I used to shoot once or twice a week when I was in Raleigh, and my yearly round count was about 15k. Now it is about 1k.

    Ok I live in northeast Charlotte I go to Shooters or elite . Elite is nicest and is closer to you and is only open on fri and sat. There is the CHARLOTTE RIFLE AND PISTOL CLUB little pricey for me. The nice the about shooters express is even though its indoors 25 yards but you can shoot rifles at Elite you cant except 22lr. There is a outdoor range about 45 mins from me i have not been to yet but would like to check out when i get a decent rifle. I used to go to the range once a week but havent been able to for a little while but now I can shoot a little more but would really like people to go with. To get to elite you go down 485 to exit 51b and go down east independence for like 2 miles and its on a side road so should be someone close to you and I would gladly go there on a fri or sat with you if you would like to go there sometime other than this week though.

    Never been to cracker barrel, surprisingly enough, but I'm in.

    Maybe we should do an OC meet at the Subway where the worker shot/killed the robbers! [sarcastic...kind of]

    Don't care for Cracker Barrel but would still go if you guys want to . And I know that generally there are ones that are OC friendly but has anyone confirmed the one that were planning on going to . I wouldnt make a list of OC friendly from reports of experiences in other towns all managers are different.
