    I think we should mention this next time. I think it would draw in some people. Also, great job on the display.

    I thought it went well. Although my first year, it looked slower than other years. I think Indy dropped the ball some on that. So note for next year. Also, next year I'll try to bring out the 22 pistols i have as well, so there is a bit of variety. They had about the longest line as well. I heard the SCAR was a big hit, so I'll be glad to bring that again.
    Also, very liked the display, although i didn't get to see or spend too much time there. Loved the variety and difference of weapons there. Great collection from everyone

    Maybe next year we can ask the DNR about having 2 rifle and 2 pistols set up, instead of 3 rifle 1 pistol

    Great minds think alike. I like to think this event is a work in progress and how can next year be better to educate all who show up. A BIG Thank You for all who helped make this happen.

    I heard 1 DNR guy say that that weekend was Graduation weekend in the area and that could be one reason for the low turn out. We might check on that next year.

    First off, THANK YOU to all the volunteers and organizers!

    I was at the 22 pistol table, and although it started out a little slow, it was nonstop all day. At one point I looked over and there was not a single person at the 22 rifle tables, and there were three people in line for the pistol. Having a second pistol table would be good.

    I went through 500 rounds at the pistol table. I would load five magazines with five rounds each, and most people would go through all five. Maybe next year it would be best to only go through four magazines. Most people that shot the pistol had never shot a pistol before, and every one went away liking it.

    The pictures that PhotoNinja took are being loaded to imgur right now, so I will start posting them soon.

    You did a great job over there on the pistol as well. I was next to you with the 22 AR. If we do, i have 2 other 22 pistols for next year. So, if we have 2 stations we'll have a spare pistol as well. Of course I am sure others might volunteer their's as well.

    Well, I had my m&p 22 pistol there as a backup, in case of problems.
    I also have a neos.

    I love this event! It's fun to stand back and watch the reactions of both parents and kids, as they enter the shooting stalls, timid and uncertain then walk out with a big grin on their face. Several of them seemed pretty darn proud as they walked around with their targets.

    Food was great, conversations were fun, weather was great and I couldn't ask for a better group of people to teach others about the love of guns!

    FYI: pictures are taking longer to upload than expected but they are coming.
