A lady friend and Calgunner (SierraApril (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/member.php?u=59820)) is coming in from out of town this weekend to help me celebrate my 49th birthday. . .

She's never handled a gun before, so I thought I would show her how to do it.

Anyways - she wants to meet more Calgunners, and wants to try out a bunch of different guns. . .

If anyone wants to meet us - we'll be there around noon. . .

Post in this thread to let us know you are coming!!!!!!!

That's 8/1 - THIS Sunday. . . at Chabot. . . starting around 11am or noon. . .

EDIT: SierraApril is now planning to stay an extra day so that we can all have a small "after party" after Chabot. She has to work the very next morning, and she will have to drive about 2.5 hours to get to work - so we won't be partying all night - BUT . . .

Those who are interested are invited to come back to the 'hood with us, and join us for food and drink at my crib in the most dangerous and notorious part of Deep East Oakland. Booze and guns in East Oakland. What could possibly go wrong?

Just kidding! Standard Oaklander "party disclaimer" applies. If you will be drinking, you will not be handling firearms. . .

ALSO - Sierra has indicated that she is somewhat nervous about learning to shoot - but I told her we will take care of her - and that as a team - we will make her feel comfortable, etc. . .

Ruh roh!

We'll try to swing in for a bit. Unfortunately most of the collection is in purgatory until we're re-settled. We do, however, have a Mesa Tactical PG Rem 870P with recoil buffer (and plenty of full house #00-1) she can play with.

I have at least 2 AK's ready to go if you have ammo. The others are curing their finish.

I just talked to Sierra - she's really hoping as many of you can come as possible. . .

Even though she doesn't post much - she reads a lot here - and really does want to get into all the shooting stuff that we do. . .

Posted on FB - but it's acting strange!

I invited 88 people - and it showed that I invited 10. . .

I'm like WTH?

So I invited the other 78. . .

But - people are messaging me and telling me that they didn't get invites. . .

Sierra is one of them - LOL. . .

I can loan you my TI-92 Plus :cool: if you can get away with it. The thing solves step by step, just does not give you an answer lol.

Just saw this...

Oaklander, Happy Birthday! And I certainly would like to return the favor you did me by showing up tomorrow with a bunch of guns for your friend to try. Is she interested in revolvers at all? I have a pile of "ladylike" .38 Special models she'd be welcome to shoot, and plenty of easy wadcutters and a bit more snappy +P ammo. Also have a couple of .22LR revolvers. (LOL, shall I just pack a sampler kit?!) ;)

I'll be there at noon. Don't think I'll make the after party, though.

I might bring a kid. I might bring a new (old) shotgun to try out.....(it depends on whether I can find any ammo).

If it's a 12ga, I have some birdshot hanging around you could have. I don't even own a shotgun right now. I think it's #7.5 Federal Game Load. Let me know if you want me to bring it.

it's a 12.

Maiden voyage. You're welcome to exercise her a little, too. I've a handful of 00 TAP rounds to see it it's got a little thump.

I know it was Oak's birthday, but it felt like mine! Thanks to everyone who came out and let me shoot their guns!! Especially Elrcastor, Gio, Drick, PurpleK, Illiana, Michael (sorry...I can't remember your CalGuns name) Gadjeep, DiscoBayJoe....I know I'm forgetting people and I'm sorry. It was just SUCH an incredible day!!! Thank you, Davidoff for your excellent instruction and patience. Thanks Saigon for the delicious burritos. And Thank you, Oaklander, for taking me with you!!! Best day ever, and the start of a new addiction!

Here's me and my new Mosin!

Thanks everyone! Best birthday ever - cool people AND guns!

Sierra was a real trooper - she shot a gun yesterday for the first time - and STARTED with an AK, then an AR, then a FAL, then a Mosin, then a scoped 700, then a Glock!

She's hanging out with the wrong (or right) crowd. . . I foresee an EBR addiction in her future. . .
