Skip to comments.8th Annual TexasCowboy Memorial Shoot ~ Planning Thread
Posted on 10/14/2012 2:59:02 PM PDT by TheMom
Because everyone had such a great time at the last shoot we are anxious for the next one.
The date for the 8th Annual TCMS shoot will be June 8th, 2013 and will be held at Dietz Gun Shop and Shooting Range, in New Braunfels, TX. Providing we get the OK from Mr. Dietz I will call him this week to discuss our coming to the range.
Staying in the Pelican Bay cottages this year was a stroke of genius, so we will again be staying in cottages. The cottage pick for this shoot is the Cypress Creek Cottages, in Wimberley, TX. There are only twelve cottages at this place, and as of this writing 7 of them have been reserved. NOTE: They require full payment at the time the reservations are made. Wimberley also has some very nice hotels in the area in the event all the cottages get rented.
Making it a three & a half day weekend will be the plans for many of us, that way we can enjoy the area and have lots of porch time.
The Friday night dinner & Saturday breakfast places have not yet been decided. There is still plenty of time to figure out those details. Saturday after the shoot lunch will be provided by our own chef ~ cpdiii (Thanks Charlie!). Suggestions for the Saturday night meal are more than welcome.
My thanks to mylife, penelopesire, LuvW, BuckeyeTexan and NYTexan for their help in getting these plans going.
Looks good! And no caliber restrictions. The twins will be pleased.
Wow! Thank you. I believe that the blue cottage is ours. It looks really nice. Great pix!
Woohoo!! Looks just dandy!
That looks great and relaxing.
Thank your friend.
Awesomeness, BB! Thank your friend for getting these great shots!
I’m ready NOW!!! :)
Thanks for the pics
Damn, brother. I think it would be worth stretching however hard I had to, if I could get a crack at shooting one of your fine rifles. Man, those look sweet.
Honestly, nothing would be better than getting to meet a bunch of my fellow Texas Freeps in person. That would be the real treat.
Me and Mommy are putting some beans back into the business in early 2013, so finances should have improved enough for me to afford the hike by June. I’m honestly going to give it the old college try this year. Thanks for the reminder! (and the tease!)
The Henry in .45 Long Colt has the recoil of a .22.
I’m thinking the 45.70 GOV might be a little stouter!
Hope to see you there.
I might just get me an old pickle jar and start throwing my loose change in there to make sure :-) I'll bring my .40 S&W and anything else I can scrounge up by then.
Speaking of which, have you seen this? Kel-Tec KSG Bullpup Pump-Action 12 Gauge Shotgun UPDATE! - Gunblast.com - YouTube
I am so looking forward to meeting you. I do hope and pray that you and your beautiful family can make it.
Looks like it will rattle yer teeth!
Same here, Lady. I've got to hustle to make it happen by next June, but I think we're going to have a better year than last. I'm feeling confident we'll make it this time around.
My next project is a kit to convert a Daisy Red-Ryder BB gun to .50BMG.
Looks that way, but users report that the recoil isn't bad at all. Has something to do with the bullpup design, from what I recall. My wife already wants one for her birthday next summer.
Hee hee... You'd get a million hits on YouTube.
