  • Aussie who would love to participate!

    We don't get a chance to fire guns even close to what you can handle in America!

    Last year, stupid jet lag had me sleep through my alarm and I missed the shoot.
    This year, I will be setting multiple alarms and will have another Aussie who is also keen to shoot. We will not miss it this year!
    I don't know what ammo to bring, but I will be happy to throw in fairly heavily for the opportunity to participate. I think it is great that many of you are generous enough to allow us poor people in more restrictive countries a chance to try out your firepower.
    I can't wait!

    PS... I will be at Caesars that morning, is anyone leaving from there? Would be keen to throw in for a good bit of extra ammo if someone is able to drive us from there!

    that's part of the reason i love to host this event. and the reason why folk like you can get in for a $5 discount.

    it may be a pipe dream of mine that people in Commonwealth nations remember their heritage of being rough-and-tumble explorers and such. maybe you're not all going to head home and vote out/overthrow/behead the awful leaders who are stealing all of your rights... but at least i can try to plant as many seeds as possible that one day might blossom into something new if your climate ever changes politically.

    i haven't seen anyone post about that yet in the ride sharing thread, but with Black Hat still going on there must be some other folk i'd suspect.

I don't feel cool when I go there. I'm tired of seeing John Mayer's face pop up. I feel like I'm being hustled when I visit there, and I don't think their product is that great. DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."

      So appreciative of the opportunity!
      I am a little bemused by the fact that I am spending less than the people that bring the hardware. However, I do understand the premise of your strategy and think that it is cool.
      As far as I am concerned, it is just an extra $5 I can spend on ammo for generous sharers.
      Is it enough for me to bring ammo money, or is there something more I can do to help out on behalf of the "un-frees"?

      .
      It is my experience that these things only move in one direction. Once you lose rights, you can't get them back until there is a complete overhaul of the system.

        Yay! Un-Frees of the world unite... so long as local enforcement and laws allow us to do so <sigh>

          hehe, that was partially the idea.
