I know a couple of people had expressed interest in a mid August get together in Austin.

But.... we're officially slackers... having conducted approximately zero planning so far.

So here we go:

AUS MINI-MEET PLANNING THREAD



Unless I heard wrong Queso was already going to be in AUS 8/6 - 8/10. I think that 8/11 - 8/12 would probably be our best bet.

Do we know of a range we can use?
- What kind of range fees are we looking at?
- Any limitations on ammunition? (HP only?)

Oh, and who's with us?

I'm down, let me know, anytime in August works for me.

There is Red's Indoor Range. $12.50/hr I believe. There is another range off Hamilton Pool Rd, where Travis County Sheriff's practice. I think it's $5/gun.

No Glocks welcome.  duck

You should show up. Katie didn't think guns were her thing either, until I took her to the range  Smile Now she's getting her carry permit  Smile

if it's a mini-meet why does it need a big planning thread?

Big or small....its kind of tough planning a meet without talking about it. I live an 8 hour drive from AUS, so its not like we are all from the same area  Smile

Mini, as in I don't plan on expending 1,000+ rounds in AUS... which is why it's also a BHM warm up.  Wink

As much as this sounds fun, I will be at a conference in Orlando that weekend.

I would like to do one down here in S. FL.

I have access to a private range, and I have plenty of goodies to shoot.

It would probably be next year as BHM is an expense for all those attending.

Any interest?

Definately. Although I'm sure BHM will be fun, there is no denying there's GOT to be more exciting places in the world than Alabama  Silly
