Nice leisurely 16hr trip from N.Florida will put us there late Thursday. Found the best(Dixie Lily) hush puppy mix ever made still available on line. Hey Jack! Am I going to have to bring grits too? With all that corn you guys grow do they have grits in the stores or does it all get made into ethanol? Regardless, be prepared for the best hush puppies and cheese grits to go with the fish.

Come on guys. Join us for some shooting and gun viewing. There are no fees, free food in the evening. There will be some distance shooting, unmarked distances on some targets to test your skill at judging distances, some clay shooting for those who want to use their shot guns. A good restaurant for a great breakfast at very reasonable prices. Sarge756 will be cooking his famous hush puppies and cheese grits to go with the fried fish that I will be cooking. Plenty to eat and a variety of beverages. BBQ pork on Friday night with the appropriate sides.

There will be an opportunity to see many model 8 & 81 rifles and a chance to shoot the police models with the extended 15 shot magazines. Watch 81police test his skill with the FSMR replica of the only rifle of its kind. I will make my carbines available for shooting but you will have to pay for the ammo.if you want to shoot some pistols and revolvers, I will have some available.

Regards,

jack1653
