2020 Dept. of Missouri Muster April 18,2020
« on: October 05, 2019, 12:56:35 pm »
Starting with 2020 muster Iowa and Illinois will share the duties. Lt. Col. Long has graciously accepted Div. of Iowa's offer to hold the Dept. every other year. Hopefully this will help some of our western members attend moving farther west. The muster will be held @ Brownell's owned Big Springs Shooting Complex  (bigspringsrange.com) approximately 12 mi. south I80 @ exit 182 Grinnell Ia. There will be 3 skirmish, precision pistol, precision rifle ( out to 300 yds.) and a side match @ 500 yards !!  Big Springs is an all weather range , with shelter on all four ranges. The shoot will cost $30, lunch and beverage will be provided. Round count has yet to be decided.

WD demonstrated this range to me, and it is excellent.  This will be a fine match to attend, and a good time of year.

I will check with Colonel Strong to see if the Gun wants to come along with me.  Someone will have to furnish the Gun's feed.  Hungry bugger!!!

Lt. Col. Long
Keep me posted if the gun is coming. Does it require anything special, or will it eat anything? As long as it's a cast bullet.  I'll  make sure it has something to eat if it makes the trip.

If anyone would remember I would think it would be you Ken!  Didn't you spend the whole day feeding the gun(loading magazines)a year ago?
It is far better to remain silent, and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt!

The general's belief is correct!!  Smokeless powder, please...  Black is a royal PITA!!??  20 rounds per mag per shooter.  I will get off of my back pockets and either secure permission or not.  Will keep you posted.
I have it on my calendar so me and the Illinois mobile command post will attend.  Since I got new eyes I ain't got no excuses.

I plan on setting up the Friday before the range is pretty busy I can't set it up days in advance.

The Gun has permission and Col Strong has given his blessing.  I don't know for sure, but he might attend too. ;D ;D ;D

   Thanks for the update, I'll make sure there's plenty of rounds to fed it.
