We arrived fashionably, although not intentionally, late to the Broadripple Brewpub and found a full house. Smiles and introductions all around - new faces and old friends.
We ordered some beer and settled in for a pleasant evening.
Mike modeled his new Hawaiian shirt - not only does it show off the blue in his eyes but it conceals a pistol, too! (yes, folks - alcohol and firearms at the same time, and yet there was no blood running in the streets. Imagine that.) There was a gentleman in attendance wearing a kilt which might also serve well for CCW, if only through the element of surprise. (nice gams, by the way.)
RobertaX liveblogged the event on an antique typewriter and was kind enough to let everyone have a go. Caleb had never used a typewriter before and was confounded. (& look at that stylish Gun Nuts Radio polo shirt! Now available!)
I had a turn, too...
After a few hours of conversation and laughter, and with our bellies full of pub grub, some of us headed back to the porch. Yes, THAT porch.
My friend Les drove all the way from Illinois (that's him below, the guy in the brown shirt talking to Caleb) with some exciting news. He started a women's shooting group at his range and is now wanting to help people learn to become riflemen - at a Chicago Appleseed! If you're in his area, please consider attending. It's a worthy cause if there ever was one.
Mike and I had a grand time, as always. Thanks to everyone who showed up and made our time in Indianapolis so special.
p.s. We won the Cup Of Turonistan for being among the people who drove the farthest to attend. Here it is in action. (No octopi were harmed in the filming of this video.)
I was just informed by Robb Allen that I'm officially an official gunblogger now!! YAY!
