    BHM Shootout / Meet 10/22

    Hello All


    Every year some aviation enthusiasts who are also firearms enthusiasts meet at the FOP range in Pleasant Grove Alabama, just outside of Birmingham, to enjoy a fun filled day of shooting. We have been doing this every year for 6 years now. All are welcome as long as you have a mind for firearms safety. The date of the event is Saturday October 22 and before we go to the range we meet at a local members business and fix a huge breakfast for all. Then off the the range for a day of fun. If you have any questions please PM me for photos of past meets or other information.

    Info on range including range web site

    FOP Range Inc.
    91 1st street
    Pleasant Grove, AL 35127

    I hope to see some new faces there.

    Cheers

    Mike

    Are y'all taking over the range, or just going to be on the public part of the range? I like to shoot at FOP, but I don't get out enough to buy a membership.

    Hello

    Every year we use range number 3 and the plate range but due to low numbers this year we will most likey only use range 3. Let me know if you are interested in attending and I can send you a few photos few last years meet.

    I have planned some movement drills with some cool targets so it should be fun.


    Cheers

    Mike

    One of my favorites. I'll cross-post to Alabama Open Carry.

    How does the "aviation enthusiasts" part fit in?
    Guns don't kill people. Drivers on cell phones do.

    Most of the people attending belonged to the aviation site www.airliners.net, that is where the idea for the shootout came up. Most work in the aviation industry, myself I work for Soutwest. So we talk shop at breakfast saturday morning and blast away on saturday afternoon.

    I had talked to a friend at FOP about reserving range number 3 and the plate range but it looks like because of low turnout we will only do range 3.

    Cheers

    Ah. Now your screen name makes sense in a new way (SWA TPA Mike).

    Sounds like it might be worth the 2-hour drive from CBM, if I'm back by then. My wife can drop me off and do some shopping in The Big City. How much ammo, targets, etc. should people bring?

    Thanks for your help posting on the other web site but because of low interest we have had to cancel the meet. Maybe next year.

    Thanks Again
