Surprise response to going to a shoot
« on: July 08, 2010, 11:28:51 AM »
I'm heading for my first shoot in August.  In mentioning it to a few people I now have my wife, 2 of her friends, and 2 women that are in my karate class all going with me.

One of the parents of a kid in my class asked for a flyer. He has 2 kids, 12 and 13 he's taking. Another adult student who's a sheriff wants to take his kid to one on another date.

I've barely mentioned it and already have 10 people besides me wanting to go.  ..:..

Trying to scare up a couple of loaners for the 5 women going with me. (Or see if I can get by with using it as an excuse to pick up a Marlin 795 ;) )

Quietman,

You deserve that Marlin, brother! Job well done on getting others interested! ^:)^ ..:.. ^:)^

Well, how about both.  Buy the marlin.  If you still need a rifle I have an older marlin tubefed bolt that needs shot I can bring out (or have my girlfriend bring if I can't make it.).  Not perfect but either I or the girlfriend will be using the 10/22.

Shoot me an IM when we get closer to the event if you need the marlin bolt gun.
