  It figures; Just as this was posted,I ran into a snag. It is not a game changer ,but it would be a lot more convenient if I could move this a week earlier, Mar 29-31. Is there anyone out there who has taken time off and could not come if the date was changed? If I do not hear any complaints in a week I will assume that it is not a problem and change the shoot date. Sorry for any inconvenience!  >:(

I will be out on business from the 28th until 5th.   I do know that the Jesse James Frontier Shoot in Kearney is the 6th.   I am hoping to pull off the Jesse shoot, doubt I could come home, get packed and hit the road again in a day, and ensure my darling wife would let me back in the house.

  DRYDOCK, Not sure of round count yet. Since we are doing 2 shoots in one probably around 20.

I'd like to go. Will bring my .54 plains rifle, .62 fowler and a navy-six if I can make it but I just got word last night that my wife's business is going under so I am tightening my belt and working with her to get set up at another company out here.

Dave:
Hang a sign on the gate GTT.  Gone to Texas.  Come and set up a business here.  The weather is OK and it is not too far to the buffalo range.  Plus we may seceed from the union over Mr. Obama's new gun controls.

Texas is a pretty good place to live.  It is hell hot in the summer, winters are mild if you dont live in the Panhandle.  Anything is possible in the Panhandle they have had about 2 feet of snow up in Amarillo over the last 2 days.
