San Antonio isn’t but a few hours northeast of there

Having just driven it this afternoon, it's 139 miles. :) Depending on where you leave from and end up. That's from the start of I-37 to wherever the roadside signs say is San Antonio. The downtown SA exits are exits 141, so a couple of miles farther.

So that makes it about 2 hours, a few minutes more or less. Not too shabby! :)

I understand the finances aspect. I'm not going to be able to stay in the cottages with everyone else.

That has changed, I might be able to afford a cottage after all. Might even get my wife to come, she really likes the area, and I think she might like to see who all these people I'm always talking about are. She might even take a few shots, she's been known to do that. I went down there with her earlier this week for a conference on Mustang Island.

Now scheduling will be an issue.

I have a new job, but I'll have no vacation. Plus that's going to be getting really close to a "Test shot" deadline at the new job. They spoke of overtime being needed... at time and half. :)

Hopefully, something can be arranged to get me to Aransas Pass on Friday night.

No, but I guarantee I did have some similar duds back in my younger days.

My Mom has a picture of me wearing similar duds, along with similar holstered "six shooter" standing in front of a similar vintage car. A '53 Pontiac to be exact, green 4-door V-8. Like this, only green.

We had that car from the time it was new until we bought a '62 Ford Galaxy Wagon, with bigger V-8.

Your ‘53 would have had a straight eight. Pontiac didn’t introduce their V8 until 1955 along with Chevy.

So, Mom. What if a Freeper can’t commit that far out and just shows up at the range on the designated day?

Okey dokey, I might just take the risk of getting shot. I am curious if I should bring the .45 LC hogleg and lever gun combo, or the reach out and touch someone (at 300 yards) bolt gun? Maybe the .38 snubbie or a wondernine would be fun?

I’m tinking maybee iy need get heavy dooty shocks for da car for ta carry ammo.

You can never have enough Robert Earl Keen. Or .45 ACP.

I just spoke to Mr. Schwenke about having the shoot on his range. He said that would not be a problem, but he upped his price for non-members to $20.00. He also said (this time) he could not close the range to members ~ I told him that would not be a problem, as we are a friendly bunch that doesn’t mind sharing.

He did not remember us being there before, which he said, is a good thing ~ it means we weren’t “rascals”.

The last time Allegra & I were in the area we found a really, really great seafood place, those that arrive Friday night can meet for dinner there. Still looking (not very hard though) for a breakfast meeting place.

The after the shoot meal and social hour(s) will be held at the cottages where most of us are staying.

What do you folks say about the after the shoot meal being fish, that was caught the night before from the pier of the cottages? (Between all of us, I’m sure we could catch & filet a few fishes).

I think that is it for now.

The Mrs and I can bring up some homemade canned goodies.

Do you mind if I ping a couple FReepers in my area?
