I have mentioned a get together at NRA and
I think it would be great to go see the
VietNam Memorial built by Dr Victor Wesphall
in memory of his son KIA in Nam.
I've seen it and recomend it to anyone who
can get to Eagles Nest NM. It is not very far
from NRA head Quarters and could be
considered as a second tour if Gunslot
members can plan a meet.
It has my vote lol as if you haven't figured
that out

I'm just throwing the idea out there, no plans
have been made or talked about
I just think it would be great for a bunch of gun nuts
from GunsLot to meet at NRA in NM

Does GUNSLOT have a store
Maybe a ball cap with GUNSLOT logo
or a patch to put on your shooting vest?

shirts and hats. You can PM Quinton or Marvin and they can let you know. Quinton told mein a PM a while back that they still had them. I think the price was 15 or 20 bucks for each.

As i understand it, and this was before the NRA involvement, the site was a dedication to and for his son.. and its beautiful.. Count me/us in.. we need to put this together.. I know its a lot further for a lot of you, but NM is the perfect location as far as being gun friendly, and the idea of both the VN memorial, and the NRA seems like a perfect idea to me.. When CW.. or maybe we should get everyones input on this as to when it could be done.. base it on whats best for the majority..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

I'm just getting the idea out there, I think mabe
plan it for summer of 2011. Give some time
to make arrangements.
I went to the memorial just outside of Eagles Nest Nm
and it is one of the best I've seen.
