Announcement: East Tennessee Spring Blogger Shoot
I have finalized plans for the Blogger Shoot, which, contrary to what some think, does not involve shooting at bloggers. Everyone is invited and here are the details:
Who: Invitation is open to all. Bloggers, readers, lurkers, reporters, gun nuts, hoplophobes, or anybody else.
What: Spring Time Blogger Shoot. We will have the entire indoor range to ourselves.
When: Sunday, April 23, 2006. Arrive at about 4:45p.m(ish) and we will begin shooting at 5:00 and last at least until 6:00
What you need to know: The four rules of firearms safety:
1. All guns are always loaded
2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy
3. Keep your finger off the trigger until you’re ready to fire
4. Be sure of your target and what’s behind it
What you need to bring: $10 for range time is all that is required. However, some additional recommendations are:
Glasses, if you wear them
A hat with a bill (such as a baseball cap). This will prevent any warm brass from bouncing off your forehead
Comfortable shoes and clothing
Additional money, in case you need more targets, ammunition, or have the urge to buy something
If you wish to bring your own weapon, that’s great. But it is not required. There will be plenty there for you to shoot. If you do bring your own, pistol calibers only
An open mind: Listen to what the Coal Creek staff have to say and follow their instructions. It’s for safety’s sake.
Future event: There is planning underway for a second outdoor shoot later in the spring to give folks a try at various non-pistol calibers.
Thanks to the folks at Coal Creek for giving us the space.
If you plan on attending, leave a comment or shoot me an email so we can get a decent count.
I’ll post this announcement again in the future.
