Well not really. I am not going today. But if you are, why don't you post a message here so perhaps other like-minded individuals will do the same.
Then people can socialize in person. You could say where and when you are going, and some sort of distinctive description so you can be identified.
Example:
Today july 12 khsc rifle side. Look for fat guy in orange pants, and green Paracord bracelet. Around 2pm.

This could be an ongoing sticky thread.

Thanks for the second.
In the same way that this forum is the internet gathering place, the range should be a physical gathering place
for members to meet. This thread should encourage these face to face meetings.

I like the idea. Just be aware of who is watching. Perhaps people get a 2a hawaii sticker and put on your gear for identification purposes instead.
I think, therefore I am armed.

I'm no winner this year. I'm going to try again next year if I survive the Doctors at Tripler.

Ok guys, this thread is here for you to tell others that you're going to the range so you can socialize in person.
Isn't anybody going on this beautiful Sunday morning?

Good seeing you again too, oldguy! Unfortunately I need to work in order to afford ammo so I won't be there tomorrow. But I'll keep an eye out for you the next time I go. Good luck on the Gold Dot testing.

I know it is supposed to rain but I am headed out to KHSC tomorrow (Sunday).  I am usually sitting at bench 94 on the rifle side. I will be there from 7:00am until 10:30-11:00am. I usually shoot some sort of black powder rifle/pistol but since it might rain I will stick with smokeless since black powder is so unreliable when it rains.

I will be testing some trigger mods I did on my 300 Blackout and if they work well I will be doing some load development for it. Also, I will be doing some load development for my Mosin Nagant as well.  Come on by and talk story for a while.

I am usually shooting on Sunday mornings as I am a member of the Black Powder Shooters of Hawaii and we meet Sunday mornings for shooting until we go to Zippy's for lunch. If you never noticed, we built and maintain the last 6 benches on the right side of the rifle range. We usually shoot anything from black powder (Pre Civil War) to antique battle rifles to modern rifles and everything in between. We are a friendly bunch and if we notice someone standing behind us drooling we will usually invite you to shoot what we have. Come on by and we might have a doughnut or two left over for you (bribe).  :shaka:

I'd be interested in hearing your impressions of the True Blue powder. I have not had a chance to load with it yet but I use 124gr JHP and FMJ bullets so your loading would be similar to what I would use.
