Posted 18 August 2004 - 07:27 PM
Everyone seemed to welcome us "new members" with open arms and made us feel like a part of the "gang"!!
Murray and Jan, we may take you up on your offer for a visit....
Mike, I do believe I owe you a couple....every time I turned around you (or someone else??) stuck a new bottle in my hand!!
CJ, I think I owe you one, too!
Tracie, you mentioned that you don't ofteln look at this site, but if you do, it was nice finally meeting you and we look forward to next year!
Gordon and Frank, it was great talking with you both (Frank, thanks for the books and Gordon, still waiting for an e-mail with details about a Colt??
Peter, we'll get busy on a tax-stamp tee-shirt soon but need to know your size!!
Too many other fine folk to mention, but safe to say that we will be attending more of these eventys in the future!!
The FBI tour was great and the shoot was a blast (all family members got through without getting yelled at by the RSO's....everyone was safe!!. Dinner was delicious and we look forward to meeting more folks next year. If any of you get up toward Minnesota, do drop an e-mail and plan on stopping in if you can.
What more can I say.....you folks are all SUPER!!!

My jaw was bouncing off my chest!! ....and still is! And my family was happy with how they shot also, and I'm proud of them for giving it a go in spite of much apprehension about how they would do and that everyone might be watching them! Hopefully next year we'll see more families shooting also!
At any rate, we are talking in great seriousness about the show in Phoenix......any advice on how everything goes there?? Never been to that show but I understand its just a big gun show for class 3 stuff. So do you folks get together and paint the town red or????
I've always wanted to see that big boneyard of vintage airplanes the Gov't keeps near there but I don't think it's open to any tours. But I'll check into it if anyone else might be interested??
Thanks again everyone, for being yourselves!! We look forward to many more years of good friendships from you all!

I was the RSO on firing point 4 working with you and your family. You do have a lot to be proud of. It was a pleasure working with your family and it was great to see that you have instilled in them a respect for, and safety with, full auto firearms. Glad you made it to the show and hope to see you next year!

The SAR show is not just class 3. It is run in conjunction with the "Cross roads of the West" gun show which is quite big and the SAR have one hugh hall in the State fair ground which is all class 3 guns and parts and everything eles.
The Champlin fighter museum is really worth a visit also. It is at Falcon field at Mesa and you could easy spend a day there.They also have a machine gun collection. They have figter planes from WW1 WW2 and modern ones to.
We all hang out with Gordon, Meale and Doug Richardson. It is a lot of fun.
See ya there.
I have book my flight. I fly up on Nov 27 and have been told that I will possibly be in the 747-400 jump seat again.

Looking forward to more good company!
