New event for FW 2014

#1 Post by Bluerock Brimley » Tue Apr 30, 2013 9:28 am

After this year's raging success of Brad's potatoe (in deference to a distinguished VP) gun shoot----I suggest something of the following nature:

http://now.msn.com/william-daniel-lloyd ... ith-bb-gun

.....called perhaps the "Darwinian-Detonation" event? Or, perhaps since this the "NOT" board; the "NOT-Validictorian-of-your-class" event???

....open to more ideas.......

Anyone is free to set up their own "event" as I did for the GSG-22 guys. Does anyone know if Rockie's proposed single shot event occurred?

Does anyone know if Rockie's proposed single shot event occurred ? Yes,one entry. He won also.
I think you mean "tumblers"
The shell you buy, the gun you shoot, the size of the bore or the clerk at the store telling you what you should do doesn't determine your actions, ethics or ability.

I saw two single shots on the course and Milton loaned me his for a couple of tries. Don't know if they declared a winner, though.

....."validictorian" = a lesser known but more prestigious award to being "valedictorian" awarded for being top of your class at parking cars.

I shot my cheap assed NEF Single Shot better than all the rest of my Crap I hauled up there !

I do believe I got one or two report pairs with it.

Ah, the benefits of not keeping score!!

I was able to snipe several of Larry Brown's "survivors" with MM's SS. No real trick, Larry leaves a lot of them to ensure survival of the species.

When my brother moved back from Alaska, he wanted to set up a Punkin Chunkin range at the ranch. Unfortunately, the big C got him before he got it done.
