Upcoming Texas GlockTalk Shoot (August 6) Roll Call!

Mark your calendars, folks! It's that time of year again! Time for the 2005 Summer Lone Star Glockers Shoot! This year it's going to be on Saturday, August 6, at the Allcorn Creek Shooting Facility in Bryan, Texas. That leaves plenty of time for us to spread the word, make openings in our schedules, and save up for guns, ammo, and traveling expenses!


About the Facility
Allcorn Creek (www.allcorncreek.com) is a very nice shooting facility with three separate grassed 35 yard pistol ranges (w/covered firing lines), one 100 yard rifle range (w/covered firing line), and various skeet/trap stations. Additionally, there is an indoor air conditioned pro shop with ammunition and rental guns available. We will have an entire pistol range to ourselves, on which to shoot pistols, tactical shotguns, and possibly carbines. As I mentioned before, all the ranges have covered firing lines, which will be much welcomed in the heat. We can draw from holster, draw from concealment, and shoot while moving. Many ranges won't let you do that! Each pistol range has berms on three sides, so we would have our own area to ourselves. And if some folks want to wander over to other pistol ranges and/or the rifle range, that will be fine too. He did ask that we refrain from shooting any full-auto guns though.

The owner of the facility is going to offer us flat range fee of $5 per person (it'd normally be $5 per person, per hour!). I'm predicting us to have at least 15 or 20 people show up, so this will be a great deal for all.


About the Location
The facility is located northeast of Bryan, Texas, about 10-15 minutes from Hwy. 6. I have posted a detailed map below showing how to get to the range from Hwy. 6 and Briarcrest. Bryan is located right next to College Station, and is in a good central location for people coming from Houston, Austin, Waco, DFW, and Tyler. I've also posted a map of Texas showing whereabouts it's located in relation to these cities. I have also posted some directions on the best way to get there from some of these cities, just to make things easier. I went to school in College Station for four years, and still spend about 1/3 of my time there, so I'm very familiar with the area and will be able to help out with any problems or questions (such as where to eat, drink, buy ammo, etc.). On the other thread that I started a while back about this get-together, several people said they would be willing to carpool with others coming from out of town. So if you are interested in doing that, please mention that in your roll call post.

Roll Call Instructions
If you are planning to attend, please post to this thread with any of the following information that you're willing to share. I think it would be nice to at least be able to put names and usernames with faces beforehand. I know that I forgot half the people from the last GT shoot I went to because I'd just learned their names that day. ;f

Quote:
Your name (first, full, whatever):
The location you will be coming from:
The guns you will be bringing and wouldn't mind letting others shoot:
Your picture (if at all possible):
If you are willing to pick up other GTers who are looking to carpool, or are looking to find a ride with someone else, please post that too. Also, if you would prefer to get a hotel room for the night after, feel free to mention that. And of course, post any questions or comments you have.

We will begin at 11:00 AM and shoot until about 4:00 PM (depending on what everybody wants to do). At that time, we will travel in convoy to C&J's BBQ, which has delicious brisket, among other things (great sandwiches too). After this, you can organize more plans if you wish, or those who want to can head back home (should be around 6:30).

OK, I think that does it for now. I'll post more as things come up. Thanks so much guys...it's going to be a blast.

P.S.-be sure to bring your own factory ammo if you're interested in shooting other people's guns

Be there too. But, I don't wanna give out info on the board. Sorry. I do live in CS, though. I may also have 2 co-workers with me as well.

Hey, does the range now supply target stands? A co-worker said he went last year and you had to have your own...

They have low-ground stands that hold sheets of cardboard. Since we're going to be shooting so much (and will be shooting shotguns), I'm going to attempt to bring some large sheets of cardboard with me to replinish (refrigerator boxes?). But if anyone here already has a lead on some cardboard (hell, and maybe some extra target stands too), that'd help me out a bunch.

I am going to try to be there. I have shot at Allcorn Creek. It's not fancy, but it is nice. Be sure to pack plenty of fluids.

May I suggest checking grocery or furniture stores for big boxes to tear apart and use as backers.

Those directions are very accurate. Print a copy if you aren't familiar with the area.

Depends if I come back in time from China or not. If I come back on a Friday, then I'm definitely in.

I'll make room on my schedule and try to be there.

It's not too far out of the way to meet some folks, and since I do appreciate all the condolences so many people extended to me through cyberspace last week, I'll take opportunity to extend handshakes and, yes, hugs in real life.

Good call, Andrew. A time might be the only thing I forgot to include. ;i I might have done it on purpose though, cause it might be best to see who all is going to be coming from where and then pick a time based on that. I would probably say sometime around 10:00 or 11:00 though. It'll take the DFW and San Antonio folks somewhere around 3 hours, and I'd hate them to have to leave earlier than 7:00 or 8:00. Unless they're just complete masochists and would WANT to leave at 6:00. ;i

What do y'all think about a time?

10:30 or 11. That way the DFW/Houston/SA/Austin folks don't have to get up too early.

Let's say 11:00, then we can take a lunch break at 1:00 or 1:30. Sound good?

I may have a new job here in the coming weeks(would have to move too), so I have to see what happens with that before can say yes or no.
Being an Aggie, I know how to get there, and if the new job doesn't get in the way I will be there.
