    Now worries - babj is right... If this pans out, we ought to make it a somewhat regular thing. Or we could all spill into Dallas Target & Action Shooters - I'm guessing they could use a healthy dose of the other Austrian pistol. :D

    Oooo, subversion! When they see the quality of our Austrian weapons, they'll be forced to switch. Well, maybe some will, after all, they are Glockers, and you've all seen our Steyr car license plate holders, right?

    Smarter than the average Glocker. :D:D:D

    Sucks, ETH, but oh well. As Syntax says, we'll see how this first range trip goes. If it works out well, we'll have others. You can always come up during a non-hectic week.

    Concerning subversion, I think its fine. But we first have to establish ourselves and our unity. We need to draft an oath that we all take (with our BLOOD!) and then make preparations to usurp the main positions within DTAS. Patience and dedication, my brothers, and our Will will be met.

    Real quick, I picked Sunday because of ETH. Since he is unable to make it, do we want to try for Saturday and skip the church crowd? Or do we want to keep it for Sunday?

    Either works for me, but I think I have two people scheduled to attend that probably can't make it Saturday... I'll check and report back.

    We can still do it on Sunday if that's what we have to do.

    Yeah, Sunday is fine.

    Okay, so we're set for Sunday the 21st.

    I figure if we meet to eat at 9:30 or 10am, we'll beat the Sunday crowd.

    Okay, we have an adamant no for IHOP. Any other ideas? I know of the "Original Pancake House" which is damned good, but a bit on the expensive side. What ideas do you all have for eating?

    I figure once we finish eating, we can head over to the range. The range opens at 10am and closes at 8pm. We will probably finish eating by 12 (this gives us 2 hours to eat and talk) and head over to the range by 12:30. We'll have as long as we want to shoot.

    Ok, so range location and time is set (within 30 minutes). Issue now is location to eat (time is set to avoid church crowd. We can go earlier if you guys want).

    10 is good. On second thought, it's whatever - any of the breakfast joints are going to be the same. So I ought to be bringing two plus me - what does that leave our headcount @?

    Sorry about that! Haven't seen the wife in a while and, uh... got sidetracked.... In any case! The range is still a go. I'll be sending out a PM to each of you verifying information and giving you my phone number. Let me know if there are any changes. We currently have a reservation at IHOP for 16 at 10am this sunday. The address and phone number is below.

    We'll meet up at IHOP, eat and talk, etc, and leave to the shooting range afterwards. I have three hours scheduled from the start time of eating to the start time of shooting. This will give us plenty of leeway time for getting lost, making an ammo run to walmart, hitting on hot waitresses (I've requested a pretty one...), etc.

    Let me know if anyone has questions. If anyone else wants to join us, the location is posted below. Send me a PM and I'll see if I can update the reservation. No promises, however. (still no reason why you can't come join us, just might have to make an adventure out of it!)

    ================

    Here's the count:

    JW, wife, friends(2) = 4
    syntax, silverx0ne, fnewendaiku and friend = 4
    vxskaxv, wife, friends(3) = 5
    michaelmew, wife and friend(1) = 3

    Total: 16

    Oh, good news about IHOP. I called in to make a reservation and they didn't have any reservations at all. Now, mind you, it's only Wednesday, but still a good thing :) 10 am should beat the Sunday rush. I'm going to get there a little bit earlier to physically get the seats.

    It seems I'm bringing 3. Good job setting it up, JaegerWulf :)

    Did someone say they were bringing a camera?

    two plus me = 3 (not two, including me....) Anyways, are you only bringing yourself and one other person? If so, that's fine. Won't have to change reservation. Sorry for the misunderstanding :) But! That is why we are handling it so far ahead of time. That extra person will give Babj the chance to still come down! Or ETH if he wants to leave his wife behind... which I don't imagine he would... hmm...

    Oh, and I do intend to bring a camera. Shouldn't stop others from bringing their own though. We'll put up an album here for all to see afterwards.
