    Romney said in debate1 that they were illegal.

    before you buy your tix, you Founders should wait to see if we're in a middle of a Civil War first or buy refundable tix.

    House Amendment 777 to H.R. 4332 banned civilians from possessing FAs that were not registered as of May 19, 1986.

    As they were the cheapest and easiest to convert, there was a mad rush to convert a variety of AKs. An AK converts by drilling a hole and adding the appropriate FCG.

    I think that KC could be a rally point regardless.

    It might be smart to set up KC like an indian country remote outpost. ..... jus sayin
    .
    patrols, radios, op's, concealed presupplied firing positions, and the rest of all that grunt stuff.

    KCR is set up this way. The regulars who hang out there are right out of Red Dawn

    I think I might drive down for a couple days of it. Looks like about 750 miles. In the old days, that was a one day trip; that might be a bit more than I want in one day, but flying is out of the question. So I'll take two days if needs be. Besides, I have a cousin in Dayton where I can crash.

    Truth is, I'm a lot more interested in patting the paws of other monkeys and prowling the gun shop than shooting.

    @ghrit, meet me at Tony Packos in Toledo, I'll drive the rest of the way, down to Knob Creek.
    The kids watched the vids with me tonight from previous events. They want to come too!
    I think they mentioned 'Dad can we camp there too!'

    I'm looking at my calendar and would be flying in on Thursday night with the hope that @phishi could pick my up from the airport and flying out Sunday or Monday. When I used to go to the shoot every six months, I'd drive and camp. I might bring my tent and bag but won't have any of my normal load out gear for food, coffee etc.

    It's been 25 years since I've been there and it's only a short drive away. I need to go. I hear ammo sells out in just a few hours on day one.

    A number of years ago, we bought a pallet of .223 and around 2000 rounds of .50BMG
    This was before the increases in ammo prices but i think my Federal .223 was around $90 per 1000

    Ok I am hooked. There are so many of you I want to meet. Tickets? In advance? Where at? Exactly please? and a contact phone number for when I get close but lost?

    @VisuTrac - Will throw that into the idea pile, thanx. (No, I'm not camping ---)
