Anyone planning on being there? As of now, the weather looks like it will be good, if not a bit "warm". I've had some interest from a couple of new shooters which is always good.

John said there would be no shooter's meeting this week, but he did request stages if anyone wants to submit some for consideration.

Should be a good one. Hope to see some of you there.

I'm gonna try to make it. I haven't even picked up a gun since the Classic though. I was taking a sabbatical from shooting because I could feel myself starting to burn out. Let's hope this doesn't hurt me too much.

Oh and theres the matter of a new gun I'll have to break in.

What? It's here? What do you think? Can't wait to see it.

For what it's worth, I haven't picked up one up since the Classic either.

Well....... It was SUPPOSED to have shipped to Steve this week. I'm actually about to call Venry now and see if it has. I'll pick it up whenever I come back into town Friday.

He sent me pictures though and it looks SWEET.

I've got my new holster and mag pouches set up too. Ghost holster and the CRspeed STI mag pouches.

I may not be fast, but damned if I don't look the part.

Just got off the phone with him. Not looking good. He's still not got the frame back from hard chrome. He's going to call them to make sure it's on its way and then he'll assemble it and ship it to Jackson.

Does UPS run on Saturdays?

You have to pay extra for Saturday delivery, but they will do it.

Who knows, maybe it will already be en route from the chromer and he will receive it today or tomorrow. If so, Steve should have it Friday. If you want to borrow some known quality mags for the match, you are welcome to mine, although I imagine yours will do fine.

Send me some pics or post a few if you get a chance.

I sent Venry 4 mags, and he's including one with the gun, that he says run with everything from factory length, out to long loaded ammo.

I'll email you the pictures he sent me. I'm going to add a new thread in the firearms gallery portion of the site once I get it in and I can take some better pictures.

I thought it was "unwritten rule" never shoot a comp with a new gun before thoroughly testing. Testing meaning running atleast 500 rounds through it. I wouldn't do it, but that's just me.
Can't wait to see pics of it bet it is going to be a beauty.

That's a wise rule, really, and I would definitely follow it on a major match.

However, I wouldn't blame Will at all for shooting it in a local. I'd probably run a mag or two through it before the match and if all went well I'd shoot it. Sure, you are opening yourself up for some frustration that way so you have to be ready for it, but I would take the chance.

Well assuming it comes in this weekend, I'll shoot at least 200 rounds through it before the match. If I don't have the chance, I'll shoot it anyway.

Fat chance I won't be shooting this thing! And besides, my gunsmith guaranteed it'd run with anything.

Hoping for the best,

Will

No word from the smith. Looks like I'm gonna miss this one. I guess I'll just have to practice and come back in July.

I hate this.

Weather's been nasty on this side the past few days. Anyone know if this is still on? I emailed John but haven't gotten a reply.

I got an email from John not 5 minutes after my post

Right now we’re on. We’ve been getting a little rain every day but with the sun out like it is the ground is baking back hard as soon as it quits. I’ve been out cutting my grass so if my yard is any indication we’re good. Cliff is going by the range this afternoon and is going to give me a range report. I’ll send out an e-mail once I have the word from him.

John
