    Okay everyone, the next meet and greet is going to be 2 weeks from now, July 11th (Saturday) at 7pm @ Location TBD

    Last time we got some of the basics ironed out, so lets start working on more of the specifics. Judging by the poll results we're going to start off with a basic refresher course of firearms safety and basic operation with pistols, and then move on to more advanced pistol related stuff as well as more CHL and self defense related pistol usage. We will of course not be doing this at Joe's, as it will be for future meetups. ;) The main thing I want to get ironed out at this meet is sort of a game plan of specific topics to address for future meets. I already have plenty of ideas and can easily structure this on my own, though I want to make sure everyone is on the same page and get input from everyone else so that everyone is involved and is getting something they want out of this.

    Sounds good. I will try to make it.

    A suggestion I have for good training in basic rifle marksmanship skills is the Appleseed Project. They have shoots one weekend every month in Davilla on a private range. It is excellent training for the $70 it costs. Women, active military, and under 21 are free.

    Absolutely! Appleseed has to be the most cost effective training out there. Only thing that sucks for me is I work pretty much every weekend. ;)

    Is it cool if I drop in just to say hi and drink a cold beer or two ? I don't think I'll be getting involved with the training stuff but I have always wanted to put a few faces behind all those goofy user names.

    I will be teaching a class that day, but may be able to sneak in after I am through. Isn't Baby A's 30.06 posted? It is http://www.texas3006.com/view.php#anchor4 sorry I won't make it.

    The Tavern on 12th and Lamar has big tables for future reference.

    Thanks for pointing that out Hoji. Give me some time guys, I am changing the location and will have a new one posted later tonight. We're definitely not going to waste money at a place that doesn't respect our rights.
