Is there a specific target we will be using for the competition? 

We used the small ones at the 2014 competition but used the larger ones for the online competitions.

I think there is still time to order a batch of them online.

That's a great question. Since you are the winner of Top Gun 2014, would you be willing to select the target, buy the amount of targets needed, and bring them to the reunion? Mary Lou and I will reimburse you with a Tarawa Reunion check at the reunion.

Ok, will do.  I will get a batch of the 12" Birchwood Casey Eze-Score targets like the ones we used for the online competition.  And a batch of the 8" Birchwood Casey Eze-Score targets we used at the 2014 Top Gun COmpetition. 

The biggest difference is the RED center is larger on the 8". 

I shoot using both of them, so I needed to order some more anyway.

Targets have been ordered and will be shipped to the Vegas house.  Still lots of time left if anyone other shooter would like to suggest a different target.

I am in Florida, but when I get back to Ohio, I will count the number of people interested in Top Gun 2016 and let you know. Remind me if I forget.

No worries, I've ordered PLENTY and got the confirmation they will be delivered to Nevada.  Any leftovers come home with me for Cris and I to use on the range [smile]

Hey Steve, you seem to have forgotten the targets we discussed when you came up for the 22 Fun Shoot a couple of weeks ago. I will have plenty of them. We should have everyone fire at least one round at them to use as a tie breaker.

Jo and I are in route to Texas today. Will see everyone there in August.

Add 4 more, 27 total. I am a little concerned about the Top Gun party bus. We may have to rent two of them.

Maybe they have a larger one.  I know Cris and I will meet you all at the Sam's and then we will drive over to the range.  I have room for 2 in case someone wants to ride.  Also, if anyone is thinking about bringing their own firearms as checked baggage (see your airline's website for more info but all allow it in TSA containers), I will provide pick up, storage, and transport of any weapons and ammo at my house in Vegas.  Especially if anyone wants to do some extra shooting while we are there.
