    Well there are two matches being planned for  November and December –
    Paul Stakun is putting together a big event for the Dade city club -AOA might put up some real goodies -Paul will probably chime in with more details –
    and the guys in Desoto are planning a sanctioned match for December –
    so it should be good for us in Florida?
    and you would be more than welcome to use one of my rigs,John 
    Look forward to seeing you again –

    I found the perfect scope for the BenchRest 50 yard shoots 


    Imagine attaching this beauty beast on top of your rig! 
    80 mm front optic!

    Thanks Kim! 
    It was an interesting trip to say the least -hard to be fresh after 14+ hours on the road – 
    I know now that I’ve got to figure out how to get to Oxnard by Plane- with my equipment –
    I will never do another long distance drive again – ( long distance will be a max 3 hour drive) ! 
    I’m thinking of maybe using a container shipping service – wooden crate loaded with guns and gear – that could be shipped to the event via semi trucking —
    I’ve got 2 months to figure it out though –
    kind regards

If you had some friends, you could ship the equipment to them.

    If you are planning on the Pyramid Air event in Ohio, I’m 30 minutes or so  from there and 10 minutes from the CAK airport.  I’d be happy to have that Thomas waiting for you when you land :)

    Could even let you warm up on my 25M outdoor range is you like.

    will then just fly out –easier tan trying to get all the equipment through homeland security –

I can’t do Aug, this is my month to get my Jeep ready for my sponsors, I have to get it to Orlando for a vender show. My 4th year doing it, keeps me supplied with free parts.
    Besides I’m without a gun still, hopefully I’ll have something to shoot in a few weeks.

    Feels Good to be at my Home Range – lots of wind today but easy to read when it comes out of one direction most of the time –
    Gave the Barrel a really good cleaning -lots of leading and crud —


    cheers

    Thanks Jimmy – this was my first practice since Salem – felt rusty – Pun intended 😬
    But proably need to blow though a few thousand pellets to get ready —
    I talked to Mike on the phone yesterday? _ I’m getting confused on even what day it is? Thought today was Thursday 😬
    I think Mike said it would be ready by the end of next week?
    i went to the FedEx office today,brought an empty pelican rifle case and the Ranolph pelican case,asked if I needed to put them in boxes to ship?
    the manager said nope -just lock em and fedex would apply the labels directly to the cases –
    I think I’ll try to ship everything but me —LOL 
    ‘then all I need worry about is my carry on bag -which I’ll put the 2 scopes in –
    lots of planning goes into this travel to shoot stuff_-
    going to be another Desoto match coming up —
    could be a lot of matches for the Florida boys – with Desoto and Dade city events –
    Paul Stakun is putting together a big event for November -and then the Desoto club is putting on a sanctioned match for December –
    I’m really exited that there could be lots of shoots
    -peace and Red Bull Grease

    I won’t be at Todd’s shoot Saturday but will be at another shoot south of his in NY on Sunday.
    I got my tanks back from a VIP inspection today and the employee hit me up for $15 more than it cost me last year when I got it back from the owner of the scuba shop. I’ll need to get myself a compressor, shoebox more than likely sooner than later. I don’t need a fast fill and 3200-32400 on my scuba tank last’s me a month or more given the shot count i get with the S500. My practice this evening wasn’t great then again I was laying on my right side most of the day in an attic.

    Back to my FT match I hope to score much better than what I did in april on the course as I have my clicks, ranges and shooting position figured out.  Then again I have Saturday off so I’ll be out shooting three times at least during the day to make sure everything is working right.

    Wish you good luck at your shoot –
    I think everybody should have a small air compressor – 
    I need to purchase a guppy tank -to take to the NATs —
    ‘we are getting some of that weather that was up your way —
    I think it followed me down – when I was passing  through Jacksonville – I could hardly see the road in front of me – and hell -nobody was slowing down! Crazy people —-
    Good to have your ranges set — just practice !
