Who would be interested in a meetup at the firing line in westland?

Shoot for an hour, try out each other's stuff, and then dinner 10 minutes north in novi. The tradition is hooters after shooting, and there just so happens to be one in novi. :supergrin:

Get some trigger time in, have some wings, BS about guns and whatever else.

Whos in?

when are you planning this

10 Ring Tao
06-11-2007, 22:33
No date yet.

This is my weekend on at the hospital, so this fri-sat-sun won't work for me, but the next weekend will.

But really, the best times to go are weekdays.

Best for me would be a weekday evening.

I think I could be talked into it depending on day and time.

Did someone say Hooters?

I'll watch the thread and see if I can do something now that I am totally single again.

Haha, nice hail...

Like I said, weekday evenings are the best.

I think they close at 9, so to get an hour in, we need to be on the range shooting by 8, or a little bit before then.

I'm good for just about any weekday evening with a couple days notice.

06-12-2007, 21:00
I could join but it would have to be Wednesday, Friday or Sunday nights.

(I work Mon, Tue and Thurs nights. Sat night I could make it but normally go to church.)

Hooters? ummmmmm... ok.... :shocked:

10 Ring Tao
06-12-2007, 21:10
Ok, so how about we call it wednesday night at 7:30?

Don't worry about hooters. Its a family restaurant, and you see more skin on baywatch. Last time I was in there, there was a group of at least a dozen kids no older than 12, out to eat after some kind of competition.

The only ones who make a stink about it are the bible thumpers, politically motivated, or those who make assumptions based on its name and have never actually been in one.

Heh, as much as I'd like a lapdance after some shooting, we'll be in mixed company (hopefully), so I think we'll stick with the family joint. :noevil:

I purposely left it open ended, but the 20th is probably a lot more likely.

Hailstorm
06-13-2007, 05:55
Oh, this is looking good. Thats my off week with my kids so I should be free. However I do work till 7 pm that night. But, I shouldn't be late. 10 Ring is buying the ammo right?:supergrin:

What about July 11th?

As far as I know I am free any Wed.

Hailstorm
06-14-2007, 05:24
I have 50/50 custody of my kids. I get them one week, she gets them one week. This is my week. So, the 11th would also suck for me.Sorry.This may be harder than we thought:sad:

06-14-2007, 12:55
May I suggest that we do this on June 20th, then do a second one on July 18th?

If any of you have a S&W mp9 compact I would really like to shoot it. I didn't see it listed. Darkside I see you will be bringing a full size maybe I could try that. I shot what I think is the fullsize today and found out what really reaching the trigger is like.

Now I know one of the reasons I have had trouble with my draw grip... my hands don't fit my G 19 right. :dunno:

I am still planning on going Wednesday.:banana:

:therapy: How many guns does it take before I find one that fits?

darkside852003
06-17-2007, 23:33
Only one gun its called the 1911.

I might not be able to make it out there this Wednesday. But the following week is clear for me. But if I wait for next week I will have a few new guns to break in.

G21sf and G17:banana: :supergrin: :tongueout:

I'm going to try to go, if my wife doesn't go into labor. (She's due any day now.)

Is there a rifle range there, or just handgun?

06-18-2007, 21:03
I would like to join you guys. I`ll try my best! BTW I think it`s handguns only but it seems I heard them say that a .22 rifle is O.K. one time when I was there.

I've shot my 10/22 there a couple times. It may even be rated for .223, but you'd have to ask.

I hope I can get my final done tonight, and keep my wife from giving birth until the weekend so I can make it over there!

Ask for Don and tell him Mike Thiede from MGO sent you. You'll need to be on lane #8 (i think that's the one) and can shoot a rifle.

OK, my thumb is sore. :banana: That means fun time:banana: Sure hope I didn't forget what end the bullets come of.:shocked:
So, whats every one bringing?
I am bringing
Kimber Royal Custom .45
G17
G20
G21

And If catch anyone making off with my Starline brass. You get to hold the next target:tongueout:

10 Ring Tao
06-19-2007, 18:53
I'll bring:

Glock 17L, Glock 19 (9mm)
AA .22 conversion kit for G19 (.22)
Kahr P9 Covert (9mm)
Keltec 3AT (.380ACP)

Might bring:

10/22
Norinco 1911 (.45)


If you want to shoot any of those, bring some ammo of the caliber noted next to the gun. Walmart winchester 100 round value packs are the best way to go.

Xenia
06-20-2007, 00:05
I will be there with my new gun. I have not shot it yet!

Loading my mags is a pain in the .... gluteous maximus, I am on the lookout for a decent mag loader that works with this. The mag loader for my former Glock works better then nothing, but I have to lean it half off the edge of the table and hold my mouth... just right... to get it to work.

I am sure holding my mouth just right is the secret!;)

Sure did. Thanks guys, it was great.

It was also great to shoot. I got to shoot a kimber .40. But, it is too much for me.

I learned so much from y'll. Thanks.

Plus I got the scenic route around the S.W. area of Michigan too! Lovely day for a drive, lovely night for the return trip, via Daton, OH. BTW, I just now walked in and sat down to say I arrived back. It is 2 a.m. I REALLY need a GPS map system next time I win big on the lottery.

BTW, I liked how my gun shot. I had one hiccup where the slide came open with one bullet still in the magazine but I had not yet put 100 shots through it yet. Good thing someone was there to let me know I just need to shoot it more.

Hailstorm
06-21-2007, 16:17
Hey, that is a .45 cal. Big difference from a .40 :supergrin: Yea, next time tho. No wings for me. Barely made it home:shocked: Glad Xenia didn't mention I drive a little fast:thumbsup: She can shoot thats for sure. Once she gets a stance I think she will be even better.

An advanced class should show Her how to move and shoot. Which was the stance I showed her. Hope I can make it the next time. So, the three of us can complain about every one not making it again :wavey: :tongueout: :wavey:

LOL, yeah I've gotten the brass face twice with it on the .50. I've got the conversion barrels for .357 and .44 and but the .50 is the one that makes for the most fun. This is probably the only gun that literaly punishes you if you limp wrist it. :)

I might be able to make it out there Friday as well. Since we need to be in the range shooting at 7:30, how about a 7 p.m. meet up in the store? That way we still have a few minutes if anyone is running late.

Anyone got anything special they want to try? I could bring CZ-75, Sig 239, FN Highpower, STI Spartan 1911, S&W Model 15 or Model 65 .38 Special revolvers and maybe a FN FiveSeven (if they allow that on their range - You'd have to pay for the 5.7 ammo as well).

DaveA
07-16-2007, 12:55
I'm going to check and make sure I can get out of work in time to get there as well. I'll let you all know tomorrow (Tue). If I can make it, I can bring my DE .50AE/.44/.357, The S&W 1911PC or the G21. I've never been there...are they rifle rated?

I saw a post somewhere that stated TFL had 1 lane for rifles. last friday I asked the big guy there about it and he looked at me as if I were nuts. maybe it's a secret. all i got was the scrunchy-faced confused look so i moved along. maybe i confused him because i was already shooting 22 and 357 rifles that day.

Sorry I missed you all. I had a private lesson earlier but wasn't feeling well all day. I started to go tonight but I just wasn't feeling well. I literally was driving there and turned around and headed back home.

I think I am coming down with something. Probably just a little virus.

I ended up at the doc. I have strep throat and an inner ear infection. I asked if I was contagious and she just laughed and said... "you think?"

I hope I didn't give it to anyone but am glad you all were spared the risk.
