Super stoked my friends! Hit up IVE today with Ready_eSeVe and snatched up that Glock 22! She's a beauty! Still overwhelmed by the people here. Gotta wait my 10 days and still meet up with Baboosh when the equipment comes in and then we will set up a shoot 'n' Que very soon. Keep you all posted! One Love!

I know how important getting back in to shooting was for me after my injury and with the price of ammo I had to donate. Wish I knew about this place before, sure are plenty of good people here. Wish I was closer I am interested in what kind of equipment you end up using so keep everybody posted. Any chance of a local paper doing a short piece when he receives everything or at least a letter more good publicity can't hurt.

So we're exactly at 95% of the goal I'd originally set.
I feel comfortable saying that at this point "we're good", meaning if we don't raise anything else we'll be able to do all the things we set out to. A couple of items on the original wishlist have been graciously donated and therefore lowered the "out of pocket" costs I originally projected into the $1500 total.
I don't want to discourage anybody who still wants to contribute (There were people contacting me telling me they could donate at a later time).
I'm thinking to leave the fundraiser open through Friday for those just tuning in or those who had to wait till payday.

With that said, basically, WE DID IT CALGUNNERS!

I'll keep post #3 updated w/ an accounting of how much was collected and how funds were used. Anybody who donated and wants any detailed info, please feel free to pm me.

I'm not sure that I'm taking the lead on the shoot but I'll keep everyone posted about the meet n' greet as details become available.
From my convo's w/ kevrok805, I get the feeling the meet n' greet is crucially important to him. He's really grateful and appreciative and would love to say thanks in person.

Also, I just have to say that this whole effort has been great. I find myself laughing and smiling when I think of it. It was like a living breathing thing and it came together so nicely and in mind that's a reflection of the spirits of all involved.

Whoever's David and donated within the last hour, please pm me or send an email through the contact button on gofundme.

It's looking like a duplicate transaction went through twice for $50, total $100.
If that was a mistake, please let me know so I can see about getting it refunded ASAP (Don't know what to do but I'll talk w/ gofundme for resolution).
Resolved.

Small correction, we're currently @ $1475. There was a duplicate transaction sent in and I've refunded it, everything should be good now and the actual total reflected.

Hi all, just stumbled on this thread. I'll check walmart for 20g ammo. they usually have the bulk 100 round pack in 20g. I'll post an update. If note, guess I'm going to Bass Pro in Rancho soon lol. although they may only have 250 cases. We'll see.

Ok my friends I couldn't help myself. Went into IVE today with my buddy to take the G22 on a little dance. Although I couldn't shoot it myself it had some smooth action. My friend was jealous as he had just bought and brought his SW M & P .40 to shoot. I can't hardly wait to set up the equipment and fire it myself. What was even more cool is that everyone at IVE seems to know whats going on and they can't wait to see it all in action too. This whole thing has been AWESOME and I can't wait to meet you all. More info coming about a Shoot n' Que. God bless & Thank you all!

Kevin

Got my laser attachment today & 300 rounds of ammo yesterday! I am jumping out of my chair! So excited! Here is an update - I called BE Adaptive today and apparently my equipment was just shipped today (bummer). But anything good is worth waiting for. Right?

Shoot n' Que will be scheduled soon! I might be more excited to meet and hang out with all of you! Really a dream come true. Calguns has been so amazing and I hope to be at the next meeting at IVE. One Love Ya'll...

Kevin

Ok folks I talked Baboosh. He bought me the entire set up I need to go shooting. One of the most generous things anyone has done. I really wanted him to be able to be the first to shoot with me, but unfortunitely he is extremely busy. He is going to ship the equipment to me and should arrive on Monday. My boys will help me set it up and I should be able to rock n roll next Friday at the monthly Calgun shoot at IVE. I am beyond excited. I'll probably show up around 5:30ish. Would love to have any and all come check it out.

But please if you have a minute show some love to Baboosh for kick starting this dream of mine.

Also shout out to Ready_eSeVe for setting up fun to buy my boom stick! (Glock 22) we also got some accessories - range bag, holster, glock mat, new SS guide rod, etc.

Island View Enterprise hooked up a silver membership and have just been overall super supportive and generous!

Last - Blueline ammo just hooked me up with all my cleaning needs and ammo! Super Rad!

And... ALL OF YOU! Thank you all so much! One Love!

Kevin

Major update 03-23.

I've basically finished up with the funds (See post #3 for details)!

Just waiting for a range bag and I'm meeting w/ kevrok805 next week at the CGSSA chapter monthly shoot 03-29 to deliver the remainder of the gear. Come out to the monthly shoot if you've got the time, kevrok's setup should be ready to go by then.

I've elected to give the balance of cash leftover directly to kevrok ($122.96).

He's gonna need some gunsmithing for the parts we got + parts Blueline hooked him up with, so he can use $$$ for that.

Also, I think the "official" meet will still happen but Baboosh has been busy and we feel he needs to be there. So kevrok can also use the remainder to host a meet n' greet. We'll anounce more as it comes together.

I'm going to try and get good pics of all the gear and post it up.

I have receipts and info for all items purchased. Anyone who donated and wants to view these, contact me and I'll provide you with copies (personal info redacted).

I can't say enough how thankful I am to everyone who contributed $$$ and helped with this. THANK YOU ALL.
