A bunch of new faces around here the last year or so, and there hasn't been a meetup for some time, so.......

Looks like a pit trip is shaping up nicely for saturday the 28th of april.

Put it on your calendar, be there or be square.

This was initiated by the guys on arfcom, and part of the day will also be spent cleaning up the range and making it look nice. It has come to the point where we either maintain it, and prevent it from looking like a garbage dump, or lose it.

This is no exageration. If it hadn't been for the efforts of a group of dedicated (largely machine gun) shooters, I doubt the pit would still be open. Like anything else of worth, you have to maintain it to keep it around.

So if you're coming, at least bring a couple heavy duty garbage bags, and I hope we can work with the DNR again to get a dumpster that day.


Now, the fun stuff.

I'll be bringing a couple AKs, a couple shotguns, a couple .22s, a clay thrower, and assorted handguns in .45, .380 and 9mm. If there is something in particular you've wanted to try out , PM me and if I don't have it for you to try, I'll try and find someone who does. You simply bring the ammo, and you can shoot all you want through my guns.

Is the glocktalk crowd just not interested in meetups anymore? The other michigan forums have had good interest, and looks like will produce a good showing.

I should make it in. I might have a business trip planned to LA which I'll be trying to get out of this week.

Come on East MI people. Where is everyone?

Good, I was hoping to have an AR or two there for my new (5'3") indian friend to try out. Shes never shot anything before, but certainly had a good time holding all the stuff I pulled out of the safe. A 5.56 will probably scare her less than an AK or shotgun.

I usually try to get there just before noon, but will try to get there a couple hours earlier to get some cleaning up done before the bulk of the shooters show up.

Where are you coming from? Carpooling is certainly a possibility with other guys. I won't have room myself.

Maybe someone near ann arbor you could ride with?

Check in at www.ar15.com/forums/forum.html?b=8&f=39 or http://www.migunowners.org/forum/showthread.php?t=19591 and see if anyone from that area is going.

I'll be wearing my Koontz-Wagner Electric camo hat, so I should stick out a bit. Looking forward to putting some faces with names.

"Maybe". If I do I'll bring a couple ARs, a couple pistols, and whatever my son wants to shoot.
