I've got good news and bad news...

Good News: Tactical Firearms Training, LLC has gotten things squared away with the city and contracted to run the public pistol range at Eagle Creek Park in 2012 and beyond. They'll be opening for the season this weekend. Hooray!

Bad News: It's supposed to be raining this weekend.

Good News: There's a covered firing line. And less chance of a wait, since Cletus doesn't like to get wet, plus he'll probably be sleeping off his hangover from tonight's IU/Kentucky squeaky round ball game and the gunfire would only amplify the soundtrack to Zulu Dawn that will no doubt be throbbing behind his temples. So come on out, unless you're made of salt or sugar or some other water-soluble substance.

Wish I could. Knob Creek is probably flooded out due to the rain today and I need to spend some time with my Russian BoomenSchutzen

Tomorrow morning is vet day for the Large Feline, might make it later in the afternoon.

I think I'm aiming for Sunday morning, fairly early.

re: rain

I've been known to say to my sons what my father said to me.

"Don't worry, there's no soap in it."

"squeaky round ball"

Funniest term for Tree Hockey I ever heard!

Hold what you got, everybody, a derisory comment involving "tacticool", or "mall ninjas" comes next.

And the Lord knows, you will always have a leg up on me on this sort of thing, but take a step back, why don't you? You're talking about a trip to a pistol range with a covered firing line.

I'm not a robot--a robot wouldn't immediately regret the comment I just committed. No hope for me, no hope for me...

Mike James,

"And the Lord knows, you will always have a leg up on me on this sort of thing, but take a step back, why don't you? You're talking about a trip to a pistol range with a covered firing line."

Exactly. Hence the comment.

Dude, really, I think you are reading way more 'tude into that sentence than is actually there.
