Man, that was fun and a HUGE thank you to everyone who came. It was actually JayG's first New England Gunblogger shoot that got me into blogging,way back in the day and there is a real sense of camaraderie in these events. Both Miguel and Big Country have their own AARs posted, and you should go check them out.
Of course people brought their guns. A popular saying up at the New England blogshoots was "We have enough guns to invade Canada." Kevinn Creighton of Ammoman - a Canadian from Calgary - was quick to point out that it wasn't enough to invade his part of Canada.
The turnout was very good - final count was 20 which is really good for these. There was a mixup at the range where they didn't give us the private range, so we only had 25 yard shooting, rather than a couple hundred. That will get fixed next time for sure. But people had a lot of fun - these are as much about meeting folks in meetspace as about the shooting. There was a lot of support for doing this regularly, and so I will start planning the next one, tentatively scheduled for February.
I will put up a post later about more of the social aspects, but wanted to give you a sense of the shooty goodness that was had.
