To all,

The January shoot at the range in Gibsonburg OH is this Saturday. A day of, well, feezing your butt, shooting, BSing and some more shooting. The fun starts 9ish and goes until we're all too cold to carry on. For more information and directions, you can go to Schutzenfest.com.
We do plan to have a black powder volley fire event. Why? we like a lot of smoke. :grin:

Oh yes, I will have my USA made Enfield this time around. The P-14 hasn't been out to play in quite a while, so she gets to go. My No1 MK 3 really, really doesn't like cold weather so it's the spring and fall shoot for that one.

No 1 MK 3 from the Lithgow Arsenal. Came into the world in 1941. Must have gone to New Guinea as much as it dislikes cold weather.
