What: NuggetFest, 3 days of camping, hiking, target shooting, etc
Where: Scrivner Range near Russellville
When: November 11-13
How much: NuggetFest is free homies.
There is a pistol range that can accommodate about a dozen people and the rifle range goes out to at least 150yds and has several shooting benches and various distances. There is a nice vault toilet at the range.
The campsite is right down the same road as the range, you just turn off a mile or two earlier, it's fairly small but cozy and there is a creek that runs through it that does have fish.

times youve embarrassed yourself at a gun store
>just turned 18
>want to get into guns. Plinking, cc'ing, maybe even building
>I was young and excited, fuck off
>walk into this store in town, ive been in there before with my dad and looked forward to the day I can go in on my own
>side note, I had been asking my dad to go with me as a father-son moment, but he kept putting it off so I went alone
>walk in and the store has about 7 old farts hanging around the counter
>all talking stops, everyone stares
>feel awkward but go up to the counter and just start looking
>theyre still looking right at me, all stares
>show them my ID, clerk scoffs and gives his friend a funny look
>ask if I can handle a USP
>I might buy it thats why
>he sighs loudly and puts it on the table, giving me a look like im bothering him
>point it at the ground, have trouble getting it out of battery and none of them show me ( i had never handled more then a shotgun) so I just put it back and ask for a few more
>rinse and repeat, old guy is staring down at me like an idiot, I try to start conversation by talking about grips or triggers or my "experience" and he just "Hmmms" quietly
>granted most of my experience was what I read online and I probably tried to hard but still
>finally he asks if im getting anything or what
>say Im going to get some cash and come back to get something, NOW he seems mildly interested
>fuck this place and all the old farts in here
>leave, never go back out of embarrassment, takes me a month before I get the courage to try another store that was much friendlier

You're a police officer working an extra job at a restaurant. A Muslim-looking man walks through the door wearing body armor, carrying a semi-automatic rifle in the low-ready position, geared-out, looking like he's ready to go full tilt, but... you live in an open carry state and he isn't breaking any laws. He begins looking around the room, and he doesn't see you yet, but you have maybe two seconds before he does. Do you...
A) Draw your weapon unload on him, fuck what anybody says. Better to be tried by twelve than carried by six.
B) Wait for him to level his weapon on someone, possibly you, before you draw your weapon and attempt to respond with lethal force, or...
C) Respect his Constitutional rights and approach him and politely ask him to leave the premises because he's making the customers uncomfortable.
Cool shit you used to do as kids

>Live in Minnesota right next to the woods.
>Every day after school head out into the woods with friend, we'll call him T.
>Some days it is like -10 degrees F out because Minnesota.
>We go out into the woods for hours at a time, sometimes staying out until midnight.
>Pitch black out, we discovered so much cool shit.
>Had a factory nearby where we planned an operation to sneak into it, we snuck past security and into it, was fun as fuck.
>Snuck around someone's house and then hid underneath their porch in the snow when they got suspicious.
>Occasionally jumped from high places and into the snow because it's Minnesota and snow can get very deep.
>Had a place where T and I would have a play war and we would jump off a small cliff outrunning imaginary enemies and land in the snow and roll down a hill to safety.
>Made spears out of bamboo sticks and went hunting in the summer for small game. Never caught anything but fuck if we didn't get close.
>Saw graffiti in a tunnel one day, T and I went out the next night with paintball guns and smokebombs to conduct vigilante justice.
>Just as we predicted, we found a guy in the tunnel that night doing graffiti.
>T on one side of the tunnel, me on the other, we both throw in smokebombs on each side.
>I hide near the entrance of the tunnel and stand out of the way while T stands in front of his end and sprays into the tunnel with his paintball gun, hitting anything in there multiple times.
>Suspect comes running out of my end, only to get a bunch of paintballs to his ass from me.
>He runs away, smoke is pouring out of the tunnel and it looked very cool.
