0800 to until we are proficient or bored.
NWOP. Under the bridge.

No gear necessary. Propane, shells, rockets, and launcher provided. Please bring your own if you have it, I only have one tube.

Lunch and possibly a planning session afterwards.

RSVP.

Seems a little premature to schedule just tube drilling in my opinion which is why when you asked me about it I said we should plan this and the DOPE closer to the LC date. ::spetsnaz::
In any case, its not like anything else is going on so what the hell right?
I should be good to go but may use the time to finish putting together an M72 tube.

That's the point. There IS nothing else going on AND I would just go out and practice alone otherwise.

There will be another closer to LC. It will be at SASCO and have a moving target, cough, Braden.

I, more than anything want to theory craft with everyone using a stationary target, a graffiti bullseye on the bridge abutment.

Did I just now read a correctional officer recommending use of graffiti? :shock:

Trent, I knew you were always a bad boy at heart. :lol:

I intend to use painter's tape not paint but it is still vandalism none the less. Just not permanent. Jed suggested we take my tent to OV and shoot at it. The entry to OV is nearly impassable with the rains. So, a target taped to an abutment sounded good to me.

Btw Kiley it's not really a DOPE more of a familiarization. In basic we got to shoot a couple 40 mm rounds at a shot up WWII tank. It didn't matter if you hit, it was just to taste it. That's what the intent is here.

Can't wait to see the LAW.

Got it and after thinking about it agree it was flawed thinking that we only do one of them.
A bullseye is great for figuring out power levels and also for having a circle to jerk in and theory craft. I think at some point you'll want to hit an open area of Avra Valley or SASCO and practice on vehicles.

I'll start another thread about the mortar and launcher I was texting you about so as to not clutter this one up.
