That's a fact!

This is our set up. We have the shade, benches, refrigerator in the truck with cold water, samiches and snacks etc.. it's a first class operation!

I just hope the shooting is better than last year.

I have a buddy who actually did that.
He regrets the decision.

Wish I was going to the TOR. Lived in Denver for 13 years and attended 5 or 6 in Paonia. Fantastic rally, grassy park with lots of trees and shade. Great music but most importantly--great riding all around the area.

Circa 2006...

Sorry I shall miss this but after riding most of June and planning on riding most of August, my kitchen pass has been restricted this month

Maybe next year.

Need to give KBiK another 12K service and new treads so we can fit another 10K miles into 2019

Not to mention your arse probably needs a break too. I've got 2 more trips to Colorado planned by the end of Labor Day weekend. That last one with the wife and several other couples to Durango.

You are right Jim, my arse does not like the current Sargent seat on KBiK so I am seriously looking towards ordering a RDL

Look forward to seeing you in Colorado in August!

If your speaking about the suppressors.. We shoot the cans on every rifle we have. I've shot enough with them now through the years I really don't like shooting without them. It's nice to be able to shoot without ear protection and it don't spook the vermin as bad either!

Yes the suppressors. I guess I've been out of the game too long to remember the PC name for silencer.
Without giving specifics where do you guys do your varmint shooting? I know a guy who shoots down around Cortez somewhere and then I've heard of places in South Dakota.
