One If By Land, Two If By Sea

My favorite gun range was flooded this month in the incredible rains that Indiana had. Atlanta Conservation Club. I've always felt welcome there, as a guest or a member. They regularly have open houses that are very family oriented and worth taking the time to go, to try your hand at the shooting events which are regularly a part of Club life.
Dang, I forgot the Mausers.
Our table was a little under the weather there in the photo but it should be up and dry now. (picture from 45shooter at webshots)
If range conditions permit and we don't have significant rain, the club will host their regular club IDPA match at ACC on Saturday, July 3rd. Check the website for further updates.

Someone did mention in one of the gun blog comments that the tactical guys shouldn't let a little water stop them. Swim fins? Check! But what about collecting the brass? We could get some Cormorants which the Japanese train to use for fishing and. . . . . . .
Hope to see everyone out there real soon.

  4. The weather and the seasons are a changing, I don't care what the government says.

    I hope the range dries out soon for you.

  6. New challenge: shooting from a canoe or with hip waders on as your slog from station to station.

  7. For a minute, I thought that you took pictures of our conservation club in Sullivan County. I have pictures of out rifle range table almost completely underwater. I was told that the shooting table that I made for the range and which weighs well over 150 pounds floated away a couple of years ago. Good old Indiana rain.

  8. "But what about collecting the brass?"

    You could just leash a johnboat to the shooter as they go through the course to act as a brass catcher then deduct points for every piece of brass that lands in the water. :-)

  9. Do it recon style. Pop up from underwater and tap.

  10. Well, from this old Submariner, I don't see any problem in getting some torpedo tube time at your range, but I noticed you seem to have left your revolvers at home. Unless you have them spread out on the next bench?

  11. B, on the table with all the weapons spread out, there is whats appears to be one of the XDMs. Would that be the new 45?
