What was the reason for the Friday or Saturday arrival question?

Charles is thinking of giving his Deadly Force Seminar on Friday evening.

Well, I knew that he was thinking of offering it. But I don't think - at this time - that I will be able to attend. But if my schedule changes, I would love to be able to attend.

I put Saturday down - I hope I didn't shoot myself in the foot if things do change ...

Sorry. I can't speak for Charles, but you are correct that he is thinking of it.

It also gives them an idea of a headcount so they can judge how long they need to wait at the range for those showing up late on Friday.

I don't remember that being an option last year.
You know what would be really cool - if the name tags could have our Avatars on them as well. :coolgleamA:

Probably would be too difficult to setup and would require color printing - so it's probably not that practical.

I kinda had the same thought. But then realized that would be asking too much. ;-)
Besides, some of y'all change avatars like you change underwear. :lol::

Getting our screen names on the name tags is a big improvement over last year.

Last year there were a lot of people there that didn't recognize one another
because only real names were on the name tags.

Well, I live here so I would be glad to try and help if needed as well on Friday. I have been to his seminar before. Awesome. Love to hear it again. But tag helping on Friday as well for those of us that can, if nothing comes up at work or my Mom, I am willing help if needed. Also range setup on Friday. What is needed for that?

Thanks for volunteering to help Gary. Marc handles sign-in on Friday evening and Saturday morning, but he can always use help. Plus, he is giving the first seminar Saturday at 9:00 am. I'm going to ask each instructor what they need in the way of props, etc. so we will have an equipment list for each clinic. I'll keep a volunteer list of people willing to help with set up, so please send me an email at Charles@CottonFamily.com.

Thanks again,
Chas.

OK, not finding the answer for some reason:

I thought I read a mention of bringing a carry vest, or similar. What is the expected attire: Formal 007-shoulder-carry, back-woods-in-your-face drop-loop holster (my favorite), or full-gonzo competition carry-vest-and-CamelBak combo? :mrgreen:

OK, seriously, do we need vests, or just holstered (and cold) firearms) for the activities? And, no, not asking about CHL carry -- that's been answered.

According to an earlier post by jbirds1210..."Unloaded in a holster is perfectly acceptable at PSC."

I saw a few folks last year who were "open carrying" in a holster with no mag in the gun.

Thanks, I remembered that one, as relating to whether concealed carry firearms were allowed.

This is more along what is needed for the actual mini-/clinic activities, and I didn't say it clearly. This really is to feed my ignorance of the activities. Would a vest, or something closer to a carry rig, be more appropriate for going through the drills? Or would simple holstering be sufficient?

I see now. I thought you meant just walking around in general. ;-)

I will let someone else answer that one. :tiphat:

For anyone interested in Forum Day:

Don't think that you are required to sign up for anything. If the seminars/clinics/mini-clinics get full, just register for General Attendance, so we know how many people for lunch, and come have some fun. :clapping: There will be open shooting including but not limited to Texas Stars, possibilities for 1-on-1 mentoring and lots of opportunity to meet lots of like-minded folks! :thewave

Also, the "Drills 4 Skills" mini-clinics are being expanded to 8 participants each, instead of 6.

:txflag: :patriot:

Thanx,

Absolutely great information!!

I did General Attendance only last year because the classes were full and I still had a blast. We were able to get into some of the seminars (not mini-clinics) because there was space or folks didn't show at the last minute. And the Texas Star keeps folks going all day long. If you're not shooting it, you're cheering others on. It was great fun (although it's an ammo eater to be sure).
