If I remember right, one you guys has a shop in Louisiana.  Since I haven't sold the 900+ rounds of .303 ammo that I inherited I'm thinking I might pick up a shooter to get rid of this ammo.  And to keep around.

What I think I want:  Something with a date of right about 1944 that is a good shooter.  After the ammo is gone I'll put it away with my 1944 M1 Garand and my 1944 Russian M44 Tula...

He lives near Bayou Lafourche south of  LA1 between Napoleonville and Thibodaux not too far from Lake Verret. Some very good Crabbing in that lake. Rhino, Cotton Mouth, my son and I had some good times there running traps.

Unfortunately I'm going for work...even more unfortunate is that I'm taking FOUR DAYS to do what will amount to about 3 hours of work...the project manager in charge of this project needs a boot applied in a strategic location before I agree to make any more trips for him...

The good news is that if I can lay my hands on a good .303 shooter, this trip will be worth it!!

I'm in Houma now, and will be free after lunch.  Tomorrow morning I fly out to a platform, and as far as I know I fly back in Thursday morning (SO stupid - I have about 1 hour of work to do but I have sit on the stupid rig for nearly 24)

I thinking either this afternoon (Tuesday) or sometime Thursday I'll give you a shout to see what you have available in a good shooting 303.  If you have something you want to part with for the right price I can't pick it up till Thursday since I have to be at some places that would freak out completely about even the thought of a firearm...

I recently read an article about a guy that used to take his rifle on the school bus when he was a kid so he could go home on a different bus with his buddy for the weekend....


EDIT - I did reply to your PM

YEp I remember bringing my .410 to school in My gym bag broke down so I could go by a Buddies house for the week end ...My mother would not bring Me and His Mother worked ...had a few friends that did that .. now if they find a spent casing in your jacket pocket you are expelled .....

I used to get every thing ready in the morning for Ship Shoal , South Timbalier bay , Grand Isle , Pecan Island , ..... when I worked at Chevron Heliport ...out of LeeVille .... that was years ago ofcourse ..Last time I went out it was to Shells Bull Winkle platform ..... I flew out of PHI Heliport in Ameilia just south-south west of My house ....

I'm actually a Designer/Drafter just going out to look at an existing crane on BP Pompano.  They want to make some changes and I need to see "what's up" before we just start changing things.

I have a buddy that was an electrician on Bullwinkle for a year, but a month ago they moved him over to Auger...

I'm about to head over to the heliport, so I'll check in with you Thursday.

Oh, did I mention that I HATE to fly??

I loved it when I was out there .. and then I got lucky and got on at the Heliport in LeeVille ... the Lead Pilot was a friend of My Sted Dad .. ( Not the reason I got the job though ) I got the job becaus of My Millitary experience .. I fit right in with the ex-Millitary pilots .. and Messed with the non -Millitary pilots with them and would never get in trouble for it ..LOL!!! I would have stayed there but Upper Managment changed and they changed the work schedule fron 7 and 7 to 5 and 2 and I was low man on the totom pole ... But hey it led Me to bigger and better things ...
If all goes well I should get off work at normal time tomorrow .. and should be back here by 4:30 PM ..

Well, everything went sideways and I ended up having to make 4 stops once I got back onshore, and in order to get home (Houston) at a decent hour I just bolted...

I'm quite certain I'll be back in the area sometime this year - I have two more projects for our office in Houma that I'm working on, so I'll keep in touch and maybe a nice shooting rifle will come along.

By the way, what's the ballpark price for a decent shooter right now?

Ball Park price would be hard to figure .... I have herd from an unreliable source (My Brother ) that a freind of His found one for $189.00 .He lies often to get a good responce in his favor though ..It is possible if some one had one left on the rack from 2 years ago ... That price is the same price I sold one for to his freind 2 years ago ....so Ya see what Im talking about ....
as for your trip home you passed with ina half hour of my house if you went back I-10 and about 20 minutes if you went Hwy 49/90 through Morgan City .... the last Enfield I sold went for $290.00 I think.. would have to go back through the records .....But I have not seen any at the whole salers I deal with ... the last ones I bought Cookie Monster got one and it was a speacial order .. I have the other on the sale rack in the shop .....dont recall the price right off hand ....
I have an old Army Bud that Lives in Houston that comes over to shoot and visit now and then .. its only a 3 1/2 hour drive I think ...
Cookie is headed this way this morning  just talked with Him and He just hit the Louisiana state line ...
As for the shooter ..I will keep My eyes open and post if I get one ... Cant promis ya any thing . as I have not seen any lately

I"m at home in NW Houston with a house-cleaning woman (my woman, cleaning the house) and a sick kid...I might be coming down with something myself...  Slept 11 hours last night and still feel wiped out...
