another shatty forecast for Thursday nite at Oakdale

Postby rugersol on Thu Jun 17, 2010 10:18 am

As of 11:00, we're still on.

But I wanted to make sure everyone understands, no matter whether we call the match or not, there is HAIL and DAMAGING WINDS "forecasted" for late-afternoon/evening. If ya just bought a new Porsche, don't blame us if ya get hail-damage just because we went ahead with the match. :roll:

My best guess is, if there's rain/storms tonite, they'll develop just to our west, and move in. At which, it's going to be very difficult to predict whether we can get some shooting in, before they get here.

Again, we'll use the the http://blab.krok.us/ system to notify everyone if the match is canceled. It may be canceled at 3:00 ... it may be canceled at 7:00 ... or not at all.

Hope it holds out. Nobody wants to see it get cancelled, and then see me go straight to Chili's for 6 hours... Ugly wouldn't describe it.

What range at Oakdale? I probably won't be able to get out of work early enough to make the new shooters briefing, so I may just be observing. I like to watch.

ok I'll bite.

What the hell is in your avatar? Did somebody make a S&W into a blunderbuss? Was that revolver used on an old pirate ship by any chance?

Either that or they replaced the barrel with candle stick holder...

:D

Except if that was true it wouldn't fire properly :lol:

My serious guess from the tiny photo, is its a custom machine barrel, meant to keep more weight out at the muzzle, to reduce muzzle rise or something along those lines.

But blunderbuss, or pirate gun is more fun. Looks like its got the old trumpet shaped muzzle. Wonder if it'd shoot forks and knives, broken glass, etc just like the old ones.

Match is cancelled, radar doesn't look so good.
We also have a tornado watch.
