I can't come because that is the release weekend for Monster Hunter Alpha. Though if anybody wants to swing by, I've got a book signing at the Jordan Landing B&N for the first half of the day, and Layton B&N the rest of the day.

    If you start driving now, you should be able to make it with plenty of time to spare.

    That will give my lovely bride WAY too much time to boobytrap the house for my return.
    Unexpected cross-country trips (especially ones she doesn't go on) make her a tad testy.

    I'm signing at Jordan Landing from 12:30-2:30 and Layton from 4-8. There's pretty much no way I can make it to Provo during that. You guys have fun and shoot something for me. :)

    You should try and come from 9am to 11am or so.  Or maybe the WTA contingent can swarm the Jordan Landing B&N during lunch time.

    I've got a lunch date at 11:00. (basically I told all the fans where I'm eating lunch before the signing so they can swing by and say hi, Thai Delight at 6200 S and Bangerter).

    You guys are more than welcome to come and swamp the place. :)

    FYI for any of you that enjoy trap and skeet, or want to try it, there is a gun club adjacent to the city range we will be on.  Last time I was there it cost $5.50 or so for a round of trap or skeet.  They should be open while we're there.  Norseman, correct me if I'm wrong, it has been a few years since I've been there.

    I love skeet but I suck at it.  If it's there, I'd love to try it again.  $5.50 seems reasonable.  Do you know how what you get for the $5.50?  20 Clays?

    Edit: Found the info.

    I'm in the same boat.  Skeet is fun and challenging, and lets just say there is plenty of room for improvement. 

    And cool! It is only $5.00!  Open every Saturday, so should be good to go.

    One thing I think we will need is target stands.  Some Wood and Plastic Board would help too.  I've got a staple gun but I think I need to start hoarding cardboard form work.

    Plastic yard signs like they use during election make excellent target backers.  Target holding frames is where we'll be short.

    As far as what guns exactly to bring?  The longest range is 100 yards, and the pistol bay is pretty wide.  Meaning I'd mostly to leave the scoped bolt actions at home, unless you're trying for dime size groups at 100. Or, if that is your intent, that's fine, but we won't shut the range down every five minutes to check groups, so bring a spotting scope. I think most of our crowd will lean towards training/combat style stuff rather than bench work.  I suspect it'll be a little rowdy to do serious bench rest stuff anyway.


    The biggest key will be portable stands, bring 'em if you have 'em. 

    No shade except right on the firing line, so if you want to sit and relax without muzzle blast, bring some pop-ups and lawn chairs.  Bring snacks/liquids as well, there is no concession stand.

    Cool. Sounds like I'll bring my milsurp trio:



    And my AK. Maybe the .22-250 on the off chance there's a trip to a dog town.

    Probably going to order the 20lb bulk bag of Tannerite this weekend too.

    Nearest dog towns are at least a hundred miles out. ;)

    Should be here on Tuesday.  Now I need to pick up a bunch of 1x2's and remember to bring some screw, a cordless drill, and the staple gun.  Another thing I need to get are some tent stakes in case it's windy.

    I have three home made wood target stands that I will be bringing. Have a range kit with staple gun, some basic tools, spray adhesive, etc. For noise makers I am planning on bringing an M1 Garand, M1 Carbine, Ruger 10/22, Smith & Wesson M&P 9, Smith & Wesson 327 TRR8, Colt Commander, CZ-82, Makarov PM, and whatever else I can fit in the car. Everyone is welcome to try out whatever catches their eye.
