The "Snob Cup" Trip
You recall that we initiated the "Barnes
Rich Snob Club" for all those silly enough to be interested
in Barnes airguns when there are cheaper ones available.
We initiated the "Snob Cup"
shoot for friends to gather and enjoy Barnes airguns once again
at "Bob's Range" in Corbin, Kentucky.
Are you ready for a road trip? Let's
It was a beautiful trip. Nice to get
out of the shop ... ;?)
The Fall colors were beautiful in Western
Saw some great stuff. Look at that
rock strata ....!!
That was good for the soul ...
Once again ... Baymont Inn was good
to us and provided group rates for our event. We always find the
facilities to be excellent and enjoy the stay.
There were a good selection of Barnes
Airguns at the event. Others were present, but went home before
we thought to orchestrate this picture.
People always ask me if I'm going to
be at such and such a show, etc. How can they see Barnes guns?
Where will they ever be able to examine and shoot one? Well ...
hope this answers that once again.
Here we fire up the grill and start
Saturday Evening's events ...
We appreciate those who took the time,
made the arrangements, and stood the expense of attending. We
provided a meal for all Saturday evening. Kelly and I brought
along wild Russian Boar sausage from a Boar I'd taken with a Barnes
airgun. We also brought sirloin tip roasts of buffalo from my
Feb. 05 Buffalo hunt with a Barnes Yukon 58 airgun.
We sliced the roasts into pit beef.
Fried up some onions and peppers for the boar sausage and laid
it on some nice rolls.
Cooked it all slow .....
It was dark before it was all ready
But we all thought it was worth the
wait ... ;?)
Man ... that was good!
As we ate ... we sat around a fire
pit Bob had laid out. It was very crisp outside by then ....
and we all enjoyed the fire very much
while we swapped stories ...
The weather was great for the event.
This is not quite all of us ... but most. By Golly ... nothing
is getting into that shed!
Lewis and Clark even stopped by the
Hunting Camp range. It was a historic moment! ......... ;?)
And the Big Winners were!!!!!!
First Place BRSC winner: Kenneth
(also previous 1st and 2nd place
Second Place Tie: "J"
And third ... a previous Cup
1st place winner ... Kent.
Well done gentlemen!!!!! ;?)
Unable to blast away with "Justice"
at Bob's place due to neighbors ... we took a short trip to a
range Monday morning before packing up. Here's Jay with his new
We sat out a gallon of water in a bleach
jug. Drew down on the critter ... and ....
By GOLLY that was satisfying!!!! Yes
- that's also alot of backer wood in the air. We timed that pic
just about right!!! ;?) A sharp eyed reader also tells me the
plume of dirt from the slug is also there. And, that streak at
the end of the plume just might be the slug itself ... "leaving
the building!" ;?)
Can you say "Hydro-shock"?
Nice shootin' Tex!
This is a start ... I have many more
pics to share.... as well as many from the attendees who took
pics all weekend. We all had a great time.
