    When is it and where, exactly, and where is a place to stay? I might mosey up there this year. Got lots of trading gear, which I hate to get rid of; I'm a hoarder. You can never tell...as soon as I get rid of something, a week later I need it.

    You've got a PM. Last time I mentioned a place to stay............somebody ended up booking a motel, 200 miles from the shoot.

Until I know, I can't make any plans to come to the SE shoot because my stuff might be packed and on a truck when it happens.
    I'm in the same boat. I really want to attend this year. We're planning on putting the house on the market the first of May. It should sell quickly I hope. This way we can break ground on the new ranch house in June or early July time frame. If it does and we can get it all packed up or the wife will let me bug out for the weekend I'll be on my way!

    If I do come and someone has an SBR lower with stamp they can bring, I'd love to bring my new .300 blackout Mod 0 upper to shoot. I won't have the stamp until fall it looks like.

    Bring it, I don't have a SBR lower, but I DO have a pistol lower. So you can still shoot it, just without a stock.

    If it would have been closer to the OP, it would have had more impact. CPJ responded because he's miserable and that's all he thinks about.

    When: Memorial Day weekend, every year for the past 13 or so.
    Where: My farm near I-65 and US Highway 64, between Pulaski and Fayetteville TN. PM me for exact road directions or an address you can plug into a GPS unit.
    Lodging: I negotiate a group discount at the Motel 6 at I-65 Exit 14. We usually use 20-25 rooms.
    The main shoot is on Saturday, but folks usually arrive on Thursday or Friday, and sometimes stay over for a Sunday breakfast before heading home. We have a group meal on Friday night at a local restaurant. Meals on Saturday are potluck, with some VERY good cooking involved by several people. The shooting is fun- - - - -the eating is fantastic! My daughter and son in law host a campfire circle on Saturday night with a lot more good food and general jackassery until midnight or later! Come on by!

    That was eight years ago with my ex and I did something about it. So far this one is working out pretty good and if you ever come to a shoot again, you'll meet her.

    Just pointing out you were in a similar position to CPJ. You just don't have his shining personality...

    Bring whatever you want! But aren't you the one with the custom Tikka .243? If so, bring that.
    No real competition, other than the Marshal Dan shoot. It amounts to the best three shot group at whatever distance, typically the farthest we can get. We've tried other competitions, it's not worth it. They either get stupid complicated, and honestly we don't have time for a bunch of formal crap. Just be safe, and shoot. There's a lot of shooting going on, and twice that amount of bull shootin. And eating. Lots of eating.

    I'll see if I can do a little judicious tree trimming and stretch the max range out a little this year. I think I can make to 350 or so if the bush hog and the tractor cooperate.

    The main issue is the limbs way up high where the deer stand is located. In between the trees there. The ones way up high.

    There's always lots of handguns and many folks try to bring long guns that are out of the ordinary. Some pretty cool and historic rifles usually show up.
