Reminder: Southwest Florida Blogshoot - November 14

When: Saturday, November 14 at 12:30 PM

Where: Manatee Gun and Archery Club, Myakka City, FL

The date is far enough out to give folks tie to plan.  It also will be after the election and whatever post-election excitement we see (hopefully) but before Thanksgiving gets too close.

The range will charge $20 for a half day's shooting.  There are 100, 200, and 300 yard ranges, plus a 25 yard pistol range.  The Queen Of The World is planning to make some sandwiches.  If we get enough people (15) then we can reserve a private range at the club which has 25 - 200 yard ranges.

Leave a comment if you want to come.  TQOTW and some of her girlfriends are planning on coming, so bring your better half.

The following people have said they are coming:


Derek Ward


Big Country Expat

The following are maybes (would love it if you could confirm in the comments):

West, By God

Mr. Garibaldi

Tom Lindsay


Great Scott

Sean Sorrentino


David L


Unidentified Victim


If you're not on either of these lists but want to come, please leave a comment.

Tsgt Joe says he will be here January - March, so I'll organize another blogshoot in February.

Can't wait... might have the Serbian War Criminal With me... Sapper is a definite (provided he doesn't have to work)

Dixie Dennis, The Queen Of The World is planning on a fried chicken picnic. Fixins would be appreciated.

DixieDennis said...

Got it.

Divemedic--what do you shoot? I may be able to help out a bit on the ammo, assuming you're not shooting a GE minigun!


Charlie Foxtrot said...

I'm a definite maybe - depends on the Department of Fun Prevention's approval. The late notice isn't working in my favor...

@Dixie: Gonna bring 9mm and 5.56. I have some, but I am worried that I am going to be needing every round that I have in the near future.

DixieDennis said...

Gotcha covered. I reload by the 1,000's. Have a bit put up.
Don't let anything stop ya from practicing.

Charlie Foxtrot said...

I'm a definite if Eta doesn't spoil the show.

I can bring a crock pot full o' beans if there is somewhere I can plug it in.
