I know this is somewhat a labor of love for you Roger, but I wanted you to know how much we appreciate your efforts. Itís not easy organizing these things; everything fell in place exceptionally well.

Thanks again, James.

Roger,

Thanks again for putting this together. I know it takes lots of time and effort to to do this. Gary did a very nice job as the RSO and I enjoyed his comments.

It was great seeing folks from last year as well as meeting new people. I really appreciate your instruction and suggestions on how to be a better shooter.

Wish I could have been there this year but have work obligations which unfortunately have me in Virginia (boooooooooooooooo!!!).

Next year I will be at ShotShow at this time so hopefully they don’t run together!

Being a past attendee I know Roger & Gary run a great range with great drills and I wish I could have been there for the fun and friendship!

See you in Berryville!

Two photos from range staff

One is the group photo, and the other is the drone photo of a drill on the firing line. Enjoy. Anyone else that took some photos during the event can post them also.

Looks like it was a great day with a nice group of shooters. No Sunday shoot this year?

I went back this morning to the range, and everybody seems to have had some things that they had to do on Sunday - it was cold, cloudy, and windy this morning. When no one was showing up, I finished putting the target support sticks in a pile, pulling the barrels into one place for the range staff to pick up and transport, and picking up a bunch of brass. My hips, legs, and knees only lasted for about an hour an 15 minutes of that picking up brass stuff and I was done; probably got about 700 rounds of 9mm cases, and the guys shooting .45 were pretty diligent about picking theirs up to reload so I only got about 100 of those.... that's still 100 more than I went to the range with!

Thanks for the kind words brother - we always work for all of you to learn and have a great time (as you already know!). Looking forward to seeing you in Berryville! Stay safe, shoot well, and God bless.

I had lots of fun at the meetup with my fellow Wilson Combat shooters





In all seriousness, thanks again Roger for always organizing such a fun event. I look forward to it every year, and appreciate being included despite the fact that there are only a few Wilson parts in my 1911 LOL. It was great to see everyone!

Funny as heck! No one cares what anyone shoots. Though WC is sort of the “theme” it’s more about fellowship and sharing a passion than the brand of pistol in your possession.

That being said, I wouldn’t bring a NHC to Berryville...just sayin’ !

Well, I finally had time to check the thread. I concur with everyone that Roger did a great job for all of us. I had a really good time and a very soggy drive back to New Braunfels that evening. Next year (pending the weather forecast) I plan to stay over and enjoy a Sunday PCC session with Roger.

Being a "super senior" make the weather a bit tougher to endure but watching the young gun studs in their T shirts braving the environment brought back fond memories of earlier years and much better nervous system.

Hang in there Roger and enjoy the new press!

Ytown1911 nailed it well, it is much more about fellowship than gun brand. Whether you shoot a 1911, striker gun, whatever, its all the same to us - we like meeting fellow gun guys and having fun together. We typically have Glocks, Sigs, CZ's, Wilsons, Baers, Browns, and all sorts at the mini-Bashes - we all have a great time and meet new friends.

Olds442guy - how did you do on that competition on Sunday?

Thanks for asking! I shot pretty well, it was a good first USPSA match for the season.

Fun fact for this subforum, I have had a Wilson Bulletproof extractor in that gun for right at 31k rounds, still going strong. Never had to readjust it even. I had Rob fit two way back when, but at this point I doubt Iíll ever need the spare, especially since I donít shoot this gun much anymore.

What casing is this?

While at the Mini Bash we were collecting some brass and one of the guys found this case. A bit strange and none of us could identify it.

Anyone out there know its origin?

Very cool! Looks like yíall had a fine get together. Although I didnít attend, I too am appreciative of Rogerís efforts. Roger has a tireless commitment to help others improve, along with a spark to foster friendship, that does not go unnoticed.

Looks like an AR forward assist button to me.

Looks like simunitions or marking cartridges.

That was my guess when they showed them to me at the range. Sorry you weren't able to make it this trip. Stay safe down there brother.
