        Shade? Are you kidding? Have you seen the SIZE of some of us?

          On another note, can we get a 'fire in the hole' if/when someone fires off that .50cal that was there last year. The cannon was suprise enough, that thing was terrifying even on the other side of the hill.

            I was six feet from the cannon as it fired. I think it sucked my toes out through my throat.

                True..but if I get shot at again, I'm blaming you. I'd blame the Oreo but I can't stay mad at it.

                  I'll blame him too if I get shot at but everyone should be forewarned, I was trained to fire back when fired upon.

                      well, it's something other folk have thought about... specifically, other folk meaning me. ;-)

                      the main reason for the registration fee at the DC Shoot is because that's what i use to pay for the rentals of the shade canopies, tables, and chairs. so it's not hard at all to find shade, if you're on the line or in the hangout area back a ways.

                      if you are neither of those places, it can be rather difficult to find shade. we are, after all, in a desert.

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."

                          If we are there, as always, our stuff is open to visitors. Some of my "stuff" requires that I (or ShortGrrl, for the "stuff" that is hers) be there "in control" of the item to make the ATF boys happy. Weapons regulated by the National Firearms Act of 1934 fall in to a special class, but we can still share them if the owner is "in control" of said item.

                          Information wants to be free, and the most important information is "they're just gun nuts; they're just homos; they're just hackers" -- they are no different from you and me, just people who want to live as they choose and experience what they want. That's how we live, and we're glad to share it, at the unofficial DC shoot, or at our place if any of you funny talkin' folks end up in Arkansas.

                          I'm happy to see that a little reaching out matters to you guys. Make friends, shoot what you can.

                          Rock on, hope to be there.
                          I'll be crossing all my little aussie fingers and toes for you guys, as you and ShortGrrl were very friendly and most welcoming last year, and I enjoyed your company (and your firearms!) immensely. You ever get the gremlins worked out of your AR? I was lucky enough to get through a clip without issue, but poor old Bigman tried three times without any luck. (He did get to fire the Browning though, so that worked out OK. :P) Hope to see you in a few short weeks!

                                Ah, yes, thank you. :) Apologies, too much bad TV and not enough time around real weapons. Stupid restrictive firearms laws!
