    You can buy em at any Beef Jerky Outlet. Pretty sure there's one in Cary, don't know about any others. They got some damned tasty jerky, too.

    Sadly, I will be unable to attend next weekend. My son Daniel has his last football game of the season that day. It’s a special bowl game, and I wasn’t aware it was taking place until last week, and have held onto hope that it would be rescheduled. Y’all have fun, be safe, take pictures.

    Of course, you're doing the right thing. That said, you will be missed.

    So my daughter happily gave me a reprieve from her 11th birthday escape room adventure at the beach and she can now take another friend in my place...plus, now I won’t embarrass her in front of her friends! :D Don’t worry, her actual birthday was Tuesday and we already celebrated, so I’m not a total loser dad! I guess I’m in for Saturday at BO!

    I don’t want to read back through all the pages/threads, but what’s the deal on bringing guns for others to try out?

    I want to bring a few fun toys to share so what would you guys want to shoot? PSA AK-V 9mm, PS90 & Five-Seven 5.7mm, Galil Pistol 7.62x39, PTR MP5 9mm, Kriss Vector Gen1 .45...prob a couple other weird ones I’m forgetting. Have plenty of ammo to share for each as well. Oh yeah, Robinson Arms XCR (early gen) 5.56, CZ Scorpion and Keltec Sub2K 9mm.

    Thoughts or votes from the peanut gallery?

    Thanks! Yes, but only 1...G21 that uses the same mags as the Vector. Luckily the wife isn’t coming so I don’t have to explain how each of these are one of a kind collectors items! ;)

    Well turns out we're not going to make it... Was getting the RV ready for the trip this evening after a grueling week only to find a puddle of coolant under the front bumper.

    Hoping for a quick fix like a hose or fitting... No such luck... Water pump is shot...

    So instead of driving down to Battery Oaks, I'll be buying expensive parts with peace symbols on them this weekend...

    Y'all have fun and take lots of pics to rub it in...

    Yeah, that's exactly what @Chdamn said when I texted him earlier...

    Got a $400 Mercedes water pump handy? You can bring it over and help me fix it tomorrow morning and we can still make it...

    I told him he could borrow my new pop up. He said he didn’t have time to black light it and run the steam cleaner.
