She who must be obeyed wants to make the Nebraska trip this year!!!!  Will check to see if Shirley our nurse friend from Minnesota will make the trip down.  Rumor has it Anne's sister is going to chase us over in her car and then go to OK to see their brother in Snyder after the Muster.  Anne and I will prolly head to Montana and AK after the shooting gets done and the steel gets put away.  I hope to be there Monday or Tuesday to help set up. 

Winter Range set up starts Tuesday, I get to be Delmonico for the set up crew and cook for 70 Plus folks.   I cheat and actually buy 2 meals one pizza and the other fried chicken the rest I cook but use turkey roasters and propane camp stoves  vs dutch ovens

3 March will be finished and all the gear cleaned and stored then can start working on loads. 

Will the long range targets stand up to Silver tip Romanian 7.62 x 54 ammo or do I need to use straight fmj?

Nothing I've shot them with has even dimpled them. I'm sure we could find loads that would, I just haven't so far.

Silver tip is Steel Core Light ball.  Should not be a problem.

I've shot at them with factory .375 H & H loads, and only made marks in the paint.  That was at fifty yards, too.  You'll be fine!

The registrations are starting to roll in. We've received several from new shooters and a couple from folks who've missed a couple of years.

Looks like my friend Ron Jones of Lincoln is coming up to help me.  He's off work till after the muster, but he hobbled in the other night and bought his lottery tickets on his new knee.

I'll have him bring his Tommy hatchets and stuff in case anyone wants to learn or play with them.

Oh, in case he wins the big one can a C-130 be landed at the Sargent airport?

We're still trying to decide if he should buy or just charter, Mary his wife says she's cool with it as long as we get a proper pilot in case Lucy their Basset Hound wants to tag along. ;D

I keep thinking they should replace the "jet plane" airport sign there with one of a crop duster.

We're at 32 officially registered. There are 13 more who always come and/or I know have motel reservations. Looks like it will be the biggest one yet. We might even sell out.  :o

If you can land a C130 on an aircraft carrier unarrested the Sargent airport with a 50 Ft. wide 3000 Ft. long paved runway should be a walk in the park.
