Meet & Shoot - January 11th - POSTPONED
« on: December 23, 2014, 02:29:17 PM »
Meet and Shoot is postponed due to weather and attendance.

What: Meet & Shoot! Grab your guns and come on down!
Where:  Gun Corp's range, formerly known as Down Range. (https://www.gun-corps.com/)
11744 Wrong Road
Bryan, TX 77808


When: January 11th, 2015. Time TDB, but probably 10ish until people have to leave.
Who: You, your friends, your wife, so long as they can handle a firearm safely feel free to bring 'em along!
Why: Hanging out with cool people while shooting neat guns. Need I say more?

What I need from you: Hey guys, I'm going to take point on this. What would really help right now is if you can post below that you are going and how many you are bringing with you. If we have fifteen or more guys I'll see about getting some kind of discount from Gun Corps.

That's it! Just let me know you're coming. Also feel free to setup rides in this thread.

Range info: Gun Corps's range is outdoors and has minimal rules. Basically as long as you don't do anything to make the RO think you're an idiot you can do what you want. They are rapid fire friendly, so long as they aren't concerned you're missing your target.

Range fee is $10 for all day* pistol/rifle. Add $5 if you want to shoot steel. Pistol bay is up to 25 yards, rifle range is 100 yards. They also have 5-Stand for $10 per round (25 clays).

*They do say that its for 2 hours unless there isn't a wait list. I have never seen them busy enough to have a wait list. Last Sunday I practically had the range to myself.

Confirmed going (this is just for my reference):
LrdPlatypus & girlfriend

Shipwreck
magnawing (flying in? That's dedication!)
mgh

Maybe going:

Huh, I thought that info was on the website, I guess not?

I'll update the OP but the range is outdoor, rapid fire friendly, and 10 bucks all day* for rifle/pistol. Add 5 more dollars if you want to shoot steel. Like I said I'll try to get us a discount if we have enough people, it sounded like they might be willing to do that.

*they do say its for two hours if there is a wait list. There has never been a wait list thus far.

Have you flown with a firearm before? Its surprisingly easy so long as you're prepared.

I'll probably be in.
40kHammer (Kenny) is moving back to Houston on the 8th and starting his new job with Spring Valley Village Police Department on the 12th. Whether or not I come to the shoot depends on his schedule for the 11th. If he is free that day then we will be there and there will be 3 in my group. I'll update when I find out more on his schedule.

I'm looking forward to shooting steel. I wish there were somewhere local with plates.

I've checked into the regs and I see that, as far as the airlines are concerned, it's pretty simple.   But....I'm flying out of NJ, one of the most unconstitutional states in the nation.   Technically, I'm breaking state gun transport laws when I walk from the shuttle into the airport with it locked in a box inside of my locked suitcase.

Ah, I can't help you there. But as far as the airlines are concerned, just follow the guidelines on the ATF website and arrive an extra hour early and you'll be good.
