Many, many thanks to Ye Old Furt, Alan, Tomscathanger, Kx59, and of course the South Texas Gunblogger's Community Organizer, Southern Belle (I've shamefully left someone out, but like an idiot I didn't write down a list of all who showed up; please leave a comment and I'll update the list for Fame and Posterity).
Great company, comradeship, and conversation, while making things go "bang". The venue - Lone Star Gun Range - was exceptionally relaxed and hospitable, even after the recent tragic death of the owner. But the Range Masters were knowledgeable and friendly, and the accommodations were all that you could ask (OK, we could ask for something less than the 147° temperature, but that's hardly their fault).
After, we adjourned to Black's BBQ in Lockhart for more company, comradeship, and conversation, this time accompanied by this barbarous but strangely seductive brisket thing so popular here.
Thanks to everyone for sharing their guns, and it was nice to go to a blogshoot where I could share mine with people. Oh, and I now know how to get literally everyone in the firing line to put down their gun and come stand and watch you. More on that tomorrow, but it involves this:
Range report on that baby tomorrow, but thanks to Ye Old Furt for letting me shoot her. I'm still grinning ear to ear.
UPDATE 26 June 2011 09:39: Shilo1862 was the one I shamefully left out. Mea culpa.
