Open Invitation to a shoot at JJH's range on 25 July

Discussion in 'Shooting, Hunting and Fishing' started by jumpinjarhead, Jul 11, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  3. Very generous, I may be interested if you do it again, shame I need a lot of notice for leave.
  4. Rough neighbourhood, is it?

  5. Obviously, the response is going to be "Not now."
  6. 'Sorry for the late notice--my bad. We have shoots fairly regularly so if you get a travel opportunity let me know. We really don't need much of an excuse to fire up the range.

    Awww shoot

    And its there, THAT gun its in the list.

    Your a gent for making such an open invitation to such a thoroughly disreputable bunch of fellows. However unless I've won the lottery I to am going to have to decline.

    the concept thought of an ARRSE Georgia crawl is mighty interesting :) just a thought for future reference.
  10. Not from the UK if you are a full UK citizen. There is a visa waiver program for certain countries.

    Take a look at.
    Visa Waiver Program | Embassy of the United States

    Please be aware that if you come you will find that we spel phunny. Also, if someone in the US south offers you tea they probably mean a beverage that is cold, sweetened and contains ice. Try it! It may seem odd but is actually quite refreshing.

    Caution re beer: Much of the beer in the US tastes like the product of a horse's kidneys and will be served cold. I suggest you might enjoy a Sam Adams beer which will be a bit more like what you are used to.

  11. Apparently, there's ponies.

    I have a credit card, and am not afraid to use it.

    Big J just had me out on the "She won't go" thing because I can't even get to the bottom of the road, but I made it to Stuttgart. Call me out again shitto.

    Do you have pink guns?

  13. My British friends who are coming in September said the US Homeland Security paperwork is ridiculously complicated. But if you can endure the bureaucrats, the smell of cordite in the morning will allay any lingering frustrations.

    This is from the US website:
