Who's interested in doing another/bigger Texas Shoot soon?

Hey all, I can't speak for Big Chief or Bullsi but I felt that our quick informal "Texas Shoot" get together in Lockhart TX went great earlier this month.

What I would like to find out, is if anyone is interested in putting together another "Texas Shoot" this summer. Ideas on dates, locations, etc are welcome!

I vote on the range in Lockhart TX again (great range), sometime in August or early September. Who else is interested? ADRidge, Bullsi, Big Chief, etc?

    Hey, we share pics with you guys of OUR shoot.

    Oh, oops. I didn't see that. :jester:

    Well, in our defense, the forum crashed the day before the shoot.

    Finally regaining my strength, losing weight helps, and I'm getting around mostly via a cane now. So it would be of great interest to me.

    I'd be bringing only handguns and probably all .45acp but that's fine anyway. I'd also bring a female companion, of course.

    Give me a bit more info on the Lockhart range, shotgun. I assume it's outdoor and that's fine with me.

    And don't forget, Sat Oct 22 (day after the apocalypse), everybody is invited to the annual Montrose Beer & Gun Club cookoff and music fest here in Houston (100% goes to charity). Shotgun came last year and seemed to have a good time. More on that later.

    Dates I'd likely be unavailable: Weekend of 10/22, being the Montrose Beer & Gun Club event. Also my bday is 9/9 but I could celebrate any weekend since there are no formal plans, and heck, I could celebrate at the shoot!

    I am interested. But it always depends on work.

    Sounds good to me, but I may have more schooling (2 weeks) in Huntsville/Redstone Arsenal in mid September. Another trip to that BBQ place:drool2: sounds good too, but maybe after shooting this time.:applause::guns:

    Whatever date is convenient for you guys is fine with me.

    Chief, be sure and get in touch while you're in Huntsville. Maybe we could meet up at Larry's Pistol & Pawn, and drool over some of their stuff. They've got an indoor range there, too!

    Sam,

    Here is the range we went to: http://www.ctxpta.com/

    Tentatively I'll be on orders with my unit from 15-29 August, so it may be September when I can pull this off.

    Shotgun, thanks for the extra info. Really sounds good. A perfect "day trip" for me, meet some of the club members, pretend I'm a better pistol shot than I really am, take some good pics.

    Oh, yeah, Sat Oct 1 I've got Boz Scaggs concert tickets but hopefully another day will fit just fine.

    I would love to come down to my second home for a weekend shoot; trouble is the scheduling. Stay tuned...

    Same here. I have spent half this month on the road, and next month is looking like it could go sideways as well.

    I'm game. Just let me know when and I will try to be there. May be traveling quite a bit in sept/oct, but I can move those trips around

    How does the 3rd weekend in September sound to everyone? August, unless my Army orders change, just filled up for me.
