    Is this meet and greet going to be like the one in Houston, with the Sig reps and the rest? Or is this going to be different?

    I'm not all that active on the forum, but I'll try to be there. Corpus is only an hour drive and I'm down there all the time anyways.

    I'm pretty sure starry, CCP+RC, and Sharpshooter don't allow tannerite, so is there some other range or accommodation I'm unaware of where maybe we could do some really fun stuff like that? About the most I've been able to persuade the RO to let me do at starry was bumpfire a little bit. ;)

    Also... ya'll want to go to B&J's for pizza and brew afterwards? Its been awhile and that place is great for get togethers. The beer is a bit pricey, but they've got a great selection and lots of great beers on tap that you won't find anywhere this of san antonio.

    Unfortunately since this would be the first forum organized event down there, we wouldn't have the resources or connections to get something setup quite like the Houston events yet. Since both Alan and I are here in Austin, and with trying to balance helping others to setup events in all these 4 major corners of Texas, we won't have the time or money to take 100% control of setting these things up and organizing everything. That's why we really need local help in setting up these events, meaning someone local to the area that is more familiar with the area. There are a lot of great firearms related companies, instructors etc all over the state too. Hopefully if we can get some decent sized events going in an area, then maybe we can convince some retailers, instructors, etc to come out and participate.

    The best thing that could be done to make an event like this successful is to spread the word in your area and try to get as many people out to the event as possible. Also, if you happen to know of any firearms related businesses, firearms instructors, etc etc down near that area, then let us know and we can see about possibly getting some to participate.

    Thank you Monica for helping set this event up.

    I would like to show up but I don’t care for that location. (However, I do like to shoot ) There is a Corpus Christi Gun Club and the Starry Shooting Range in the area. I have not been to the gun club but heard that it is quite good. I believe they have everything from target shooting to tactical shooting and even have advance skeet shooting ranges. These may be places for a future meeting. I go to the sharp shooter only when I have no other alternative. They have poor ventilation and when there are a lot of people shooting, it can get pretty nasty in there. The last time I went there I was blowing black soot out of my nose. Also, some of the workers there are extremely annoying and for some reason think that anyone with a 9mm is a fool. An open air range like the Starr Ranch or Gun Club may be a better health choice, and have a friendlier atmosphere. Also, B & J’s does have an awesome beer selection.
