    Let's pass the word on this one!

    I hear Elton John is gonna be there!

    So don't nobody miss this one!

    Just in case Elton is not someone's taste, I hear Hannah Montana might stop by - no promises - but if you're not there, you KNOW you're gonna miss her...

      :)

TaosGlock,


I was under the impression that you were going to be at Ron Peterson's this weekend buying guns. Of course gun related supplies and accessories purchases are expected.

This will be a pleasant surprise for those individuals who attend the IBC. Your photographs are legendary.

I don't see the print out until thursday night, but from PMs and such, we have David, David, Dale, Chris, Geneva, Sophia and Ryan.  We've asked a bunch of people, but you all are locals, so you have to come!  Fred is the official Shoot Boss/ director, but I am in training on this to run future events.  SamD is coming and of course Dan.  Dan, Fred and I will be staying at the Extended Stay Deluxe opposite Intel, so pretty close. 

Yes food is good:  we can't really make stuff, but we'll be glad to help eat! 

Also, think about what you might want to do for Monday:  we would like to get in a little extra history and a few hours of 'mock' Appleseed.  If we can drive out somewhere and shoot for a couple of hours, that would be great... I am guessing the ranges would be busy, so if any of you have a secret spot, that would be great.  You can even invite some friends and give them a short preview of what they will get at an Appleseed, but the idea is you do a dry run on instructing in a small and low key environment.

Finally, we would like to have a few different rifles for you all to touch and learn how to work -- so you know how to make them safe and can understand them enough to help out with ball & dummy drills or malfunction problems.  I am thinking some of those bigger bore centerfires we might see on the line, like an M1A, M1 (en bloc/stripper clip fed rifle), SKS, AK, and FAL.  We could bring our own, but if some of you have these, it would be great for everyone to try.  Even an original Ruger 10/22 might be good to bring:  all of ours have add ons to make them easier to use... I could see that you all would need to help out a new shooter who cannot get that bolt release to work! 

So maybe you can discuss among yourselves who will bring what.  Then we can fill in if you don't have something.

Post by: Devnull on September 02, 2009, 12:44:26 PM
I'll bring an SKS, AK and a CETME.

Geneva and I talked last night and this is what we have on food so far.

Geneva: Enchiladas w/green chile and without, Green bean casserole.
Chris: Refried Beans, Tamales w/red chile, some sodas and such.

Anyone else care to sign up for something? Someone else could do the drinks too if they choose.

Chris,

I'll be happy to bring some drinks.

Karin and myself need to go by Sam's Club this week any way so I can pick up some drinks while we are there.

Thank you sir! I think were expecting around 11 people. We have a max of about 15 (Were going to be shoehorning some. Hehe!) so somewhere between 11 and 15.

Chris,

What do you think, three cases of drinks?

One each of Bottle water, Ice Tea and Coke?

Post by: Devnull on September 02, 2009, 01:41:23 PM
I would imagine that should do it. We also have a water cooler and a coffee maker here. (It's going to be some of Al Smith's coffee. Yummy!)

Anyone else want to bring something?

Post by: NMMI9100 on September 02, 2009, 01:54:12 PM
Excited to hear there'll be such a good turnout!

I can bring an FAL, Garand, AR15, & a G3-clone (PTR).  Of course Devnull's go the CETME and except for the selector, the G3 and Cetme are the same Op System. Both my 10/22s have the bolt release mod.

I'll also make up some dummy cartridges in 308, 30-06, and 223 so we can SAFELY play with cycling these rifles.  I don't have any 7.62x39 dies or brass so I can't make any of those.

Bring it anyway! I would say the more examples the better. Also getting to see the differences in the sights would be an eye-opener for most. (I HATE the sights on my CETME...  :'()

I will also be bringing my AR-15 but I am pitifully low on ammo for it... It's a new caliber in my collection...

It's an IBC, you won't be shooting much, if any.

It's always great to have a variety of rifles on the mock Appleseed firing line, so the students get stumped some (that makes them do the right thing, ASK the shooter).

The last IBC I worked, I made sure there was a Carcano on the line, something most folks have never bumped into.

    Officially as of this post, there are 7 pre-regs. I knew rumors of EJ being there would bring 'em out - all 7! :)

    We'll have room for walk-ons, as it's no more trouble to teach ten as seven - or twelve.

    So talk to your friends, your neighbors, your co-workers, your relatives. These things don't come that often in NM (but I hope and expect they will be more often in the future, as some able local IBC-teaching talent will emerge from this weekend).

    So, keep throwing out the net - in fact, I hear Madonna may put in a special surprise appearance... :) O0

    craK, just say how many you want... :)

    BlueFeather will understand when and if she ever gets to meet ya!! :)

    (BF, after this weekend you're gonna be so overrun with IITs - I plan to make any shooters at Monday's "mini" into IITs - as well any hitchikers we come across (;D) - that you'll be able to send ITTs all over - just to get rid of 'em! I mean, to get 'em out from underfoot!) O0

Are we sure that this job needs to be done? Has someone else contemplated this age old question and decided on a course of action?
Is it in the best interest of the group to provide fattening carbohydrates?
Will I make an individual who is having difficulty controlling their weight feel left out or make their life more difficult?




If I remember I'll stop to grab some bagels.  ;D

Since I think I am the only one struggling with his weight I think I can assure you that I have the ability to avoid the sweet doughnuts and oh so tempting bagels.

Only one struggling with his weight, my butt.  Constant battle here, pal.  I'll bring some Coke ZEROs and if I can con my wife, some of her homemade guacamole....Garden is full of Cilantro, tomatoes, jalapenos, and chile...I just need an Avacado Tree. Guac is low carb, you know.  The chips just aren't.

Loaded up 10 dummies each for 30-06, 308 WIN, & 223 REM as well as 5 for 7.5 Swiss (i'm bringing a K31 but the bras is high).  I also have dies for 338 Lapua, 300 WIN MAG, 270 WIN, 7mm MAG, 45-70, and 6.8 SPC but I can't imagine anyone bringing any of those for a demo...Maybe if Dan brings a Moisin, he'll bring some dummies.

I put the word out for you last night crak, all the NM IIT's and the El Paso contingent too. Hopefully you'll get a taker or two.
Spent a few years in the area and enjoyed it.
Kaysville is a nice range and nice people too.
Plenty of liberty loving people there too, and a few can even shoot  O0
