1. Due to the amount of SPAM from foreign countries lately, we have made the decision to manually approve all new members. While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes. Thank you for your patience.

    As the meet gets closer, we'll probably post a food thread to see what guys want.

    For those that didn't attend in 2015, this is what Tactical 10/22 is all about:

    So I thought I would explain what I had in mind for 'Tactical 10/22' by posing this question:

    What would you think about having to engage multiple targets from multiple shooting positions while shooting over, under, around, and through various pieces of cover? All with a rimfire rifle.

    If this interests you, read on. If not, you really need help. Take off those skinny jeans and renew your Man-Card for goodness' sake.

    Any rimfire rifle would do. The course will be set up so that someone with a 14 round tube magazine will be able to go through all stages without reloading. If you have your own 10/22, all the better. I have two 10/22's and five (25) round magazines that I will share if you don't have one. You will simply have to supply the ammo. If you happen to be flying in from Alaska, I'll supply your ammo.

    Let me know what you think or if you have any questions.
    IMG_4825.JPG
    P.S. - I imagine that at least one person will ask about using an AR-15 for this course. Unfortunately, the answer is no unless you have a rimfire conversion kit. We'll be using steel targets and the standoff distance with an AR means we could only use one range at a time. With rimfire, the standoff is much closer, so we can have both ranges operating at the same time. Open range on one, Tactical 10/22 on the other.

    Well brother I am planning to come and not allow this to keep me down. I have a renewed spirit in the new me. And I may be down that way around that time getting treatment so I would just stay over. Just need to use a guest cabin possibly but if I can I will camp. Not allowing his to tear me down. And I want to do the tactical 22 course!

    Unless a large influx of cash happens, likely not making it this year. Not having financial issues as much as I am purchasing a lot of new guitar, band and recording gear. That said, hope you guys have an amazing time. Last year was outstanding. I'll likely have most of this stuff bought and have the excess funds to make it out again next year.

    I'm in! Coming up on Wednesday so I can be there for the carbine class. I will not be bringing the meat radar or Bosapah. He'll be working seven days a week at that point.

    Glad you can make it. I'll let you and Skab decide on the pig roast. It was delicious, but a lot of work for the guys involved.

    I think the milk can dinner is a no-brainer as long as we can get @rphumble to guide us along.

    Well if everything goes according to plans I will be able to make it this year. Depending how I feel. I will have treatment that following week so I will fly back home and fly to Chicago to start cycle 4 then only 2 to go but that can change. But I will be there for the onion rings. Can't have any adult beverages what so ever one med I take can kill me with alcohol. But that's ok I'm in it for the onion rings anyways!

    Don't forget I learned Everything I know about milk can dinner from Skab. Hows that go " I taught you everything you know. NOT everything I know." or is it "The blind leading the blind." If I guide the way. I forget. I am planning on being there.

    Well I may have to crawl down the hill but I will be here. I look forward to meeting my brothers who I have yet to meet! Plus I can't wait to have that creamed corn again!

    I'd love to make it, but we are a little new-house poor this year. How long do I have to decide and still register?
