Gun Blogger Rendezvous - Range Day (Day 2) and Cabelas

Some more pictures of the Gun Blogger Rendezvous.

I think this picture is the first day just meeting and getting organized before leaving for Cabela's.

We arrived last Thursday and had a tour of the local 125,000 square foot Cabela's.

We were ushered into the Gun Library where I got to handle an Armalite AR 180 and whole bunch of other cool rifles, pistols and revolvers. I felt like a kid in a candy store.

I, unfortunately, didn't take any pictures except for the outside of the store!

The next day we had a breakfast sponsored by Rachel Parsons of the NRA. She was supposed to speak to our group but she couldn't make it because of some kind of medical emergency. Hope she is better! Thanks for the great breakfast!

After that, to the range! The 240 yard gong is out a little past the big numbers. If you click on the picture you can see what I'm talking about.

Had fun shooting stuff, especially out to 240, and 410 yard gongs.

I brought my Robinson Arms XCR rifle. It preformed well shooting the gong! Especially with the 7.62x39 round! I was standing and hitting the gong out to 240 yards, I think the plate was about 18" across. The optics consist of a AimPoint CompM4s and the 3x magnifier.

Here is Dan Hall the GunUp founder shooting the KRISS Super V.

These are the last of the random images.

Overall the experience was great and I met a lot of great people!

Mr. Completely did a great job organizing the event, activities and mustering up all the great sponsors for raffle prizes. KeeWee, his wife was awesome too, they sure know how to throw a great four day party!

I'll be there next year!
