Rained Out

The Garand and CMP match this morning were rained out.  Drat.  I spent several hours last night loading up .223 to shoot my AR in the CMP match, and got up at 7:15 to make the match.  Oh well, some days you eat the bear, some days the bear eats you.  I’ll try again next month.

Bitter and I are attending a Friends of the NRA event tonight.  Since Friends is a program to raise money for the NRA Foundation, I can’t do any EVC electioneering outreach there.  But I can introduce myself, handing out my business cards, and hoping later I might get a few people signing up to my e-mail list.  Outreach is going more slowly than I would like.  One problem is the people who have time to do this tend to be older, and tend to not have computers and e-mail.  It’s hard communicating with these people and getting information to them.  I kind of feel like I’m in the wrong generation for trying to get people involved in local efforts.  We can bring a lot of new ideas, and new methods of organizing to the gun rights issue, but that doesn’t do us much good if the people I’m trying to reach don’t have the means to integrate with it.

    Spent the day in the pouring rain scouting for Moose. Of course it was warm and dry when we left, the sky opened up 3 miles in…. Found tracks and scat, and soaked to the bone.

    The local VFW and similar groups are good places and most are getting into email.

    Just keep at it.

    And thanks, Ed

    Wish I had the time to shoot more. I just can’t find it at all. And with the kids getting older . . .

    Hopefully, Ill be able to get son #1 out sometime this winter. Hopefully over Xmas. Get him shooting a single shot .22 And then maybe take him snowshoing/grouse hunting.

    Otherwise . . . the number of days on the range are going to start really decreasing. ANd this damn sunday hunting ban is just really getting under my skin.

    Curious, how does one find out about these events? Can anyone attend?

    There are a few ways to find out, but mostly they go by word of mouth and club newsletters, and such. Sometimes it’s hard to find out about them if you’re not in on the club circuit. But they are usually open to the public.
