I know we've got at least a few OPERATORs behind enemy lines in the Austin Pocket with me. Why haven't we had a shoot since Tracer Tong left?
I don't live in Austin but I'll be there the weekend of July 5th for RTX. Last 2 years I had a hard time wading through all the bars that sell bud/miller light and other flavored piss to college kids while trying to find a place that sells a good dark beer. I won't have time for a shoot that weekend but if you want to grab a drink I'd be down.
If I remember correctly starduks/Txoperator is still in the area for the next few months, so there's at least one other in the area.
yo! i'll be in atx till the end of december. cliff what days exactly are you going to be in town?
Roughly the evening of July 5th through the afternoon of the 7th. There hasn't been an official schedule posted yet but going off of last year I expect to be in the convention center all day Saturday and Sunday save for lunch. However if you want to get together for some food or drink my evenings will be free.
I'll be around then, I'm up for a meetup.
When ammo becomes possible to find I'd be up for a range day in liberty hill.
Sounds like a plan. I'm sitting on about 900 rounds of 5.56 and enough buckshot to last me a while, but I need 9mm so I can actually practice with my carry gun goddamnit.
If Im not working I'm up for a bit o range time.
Hell. If we're looking at a weekend, I'm down. With the university being out of session for the summer, I'm looking at quite a bit of time off.
I'm always up for an opchan range day!
Range day in LH? So I wont even have to leave town to meetup? Let's do this.
So this is the weekend. I'll be at the Austin convention center until around 5 or 6 and up for food and drinks thereafter on Friday and Saturday evening. Who wants to meet up and where?
I'm up for hanging out, send me a message if you have a plan.
CenTex shoot, at the Lonestar Range in Lockhart.
Either the 26th or 27th of August. (next thursday/friday)
I'm bringing my Mak90, 10/22 takedown, 870, and PF9
Aug 26/27 is Mon/Tues. Any chance to reschedule for a weekend?
I will be in Houston on the 4th of September, and moving to Austin within 3 months.
I hope your bodies are ready.
I must be high!! (not really)
I meant the 27th/28th (Tuesday/Wednesday)
Reason for those days is they are my only days off from work, and I have a friend visiting, and I am taking him to the range (he owns a bunch of guns himself).
Hoo boy, you'll be pretty close to the AZ rape train.
Maybe uh, maybe there should be another Danderdude Hog Shoot.
Heading to the range this afternoon around 2-3pm. So far I have 4 people coming with me.
Mak90, 870, 10/22, pf9, wasr10/63, cetme, ar-15, ar-15, glock, xd, nugget, and mak90.
confirmed toys being brought to the range.
Twas a good range day.
Sad none of the operators showed up.
Surplusoria and I shot with our friends instead.
Mo pics mah nig? Post moar.
I am on the ground in Houston.
I'd be down for driving south for a shoot in the near future. Hopefully when it ain't so goddamn hot.
sounds like a plan
I'd really like to set up a shoot with the Austin/Houston/San Antonio triangle of OPERATORS soon, especially since weather will be cooling down shortly. Doesn't need to be a huge deal, but a decent range or piece of land where we could get together and meet up would be excellent.
I'll be heading up to Austin in a few weeks for a work thing, will advise when so if anyone wants to grab a drink we can go do so.
I'll also be in San Antonio in the next few weeks also.
Shoot is stickied in /t/, hope some people can make it!
Anyone in the area want to do the local IDPA carbine matches?
busy sunday :(
Me at the new range in creedmoor
Looks like a nice place. How's it compare to Lone Star?
From what I've heard, it's great, good long range, an "explosive" range, tannerite and old cars and whatnot.
Haven't been yet, technically, tried to go weekend before last, but they were closed, still building up it seems.
The City of Creedmoor has obtained a temporary restraining order against The Shooting Ranch from operating until we have a hearing in District Court on Jan 23rd. Until then we will be closed. We will reopen very soon! Sorry for the inconvenience. Additionally if any friends of The Shooting Ranch would like to have their voice heard please attend the City of Creedmoor meeting on Thursday Jan 16th at 7pm. They will have an open forum for you to voice your opinion. Feel free to show up to support the 2nd Amendment.
Question for Austinbros:
What ranges in the Austin area allow automatics?
If indoor, do they allow rifle calibers?
What about steel cased ammo?
Didn't see this, I never check /meet/ anymore, probably call Best of the West, I know you won't be able to fire autos at Red's or Eagle Peak, Lone Star in Lockhart is also no autos IIRC.
Thanks for the info.
I'll call Best of the West and ask them.
Best of the West does allow autos in the tactical bays, but you have to qualify before they'll let you use them. Qualification is shooting at 250 yards.
Dang. Why does Austin suck when it comes to allowing automatics at their ranges? Almost every public indoor range in Houston allows automatics (some are pistol cartridge only, but almost all of the new ranges allow automatic rifles). Hell, most of them rent autos.
Most of our ranges are outdoor and outside of the Austin area.
So liability of outdoor ranges...
We only really have a couple ranges in Austin and they're indoor. Basically the establishment of new ranges never happen in Austin because well it's Austin. It's a nice city and all but the politics are different from the rest of the state.
It used to be decent but it's getting worse with the incoming population of Californians.
IDPA shoot on Sunday at CAPS Club
