Traditions

Unread postAuthor: sandman » Sun Jul 01, 2007 3:43 pm

OK, i was thinking bout all the people having meets over the summer and bout IPLA.

since i know of no traditions to open or close IPLA meets, lets start one

I was thinking of starting with the loudest/Worst C:B ratio ex: (55 gal drum as chamber and 1 foot of brake line as barrel). And ending the meet with the most efficient cannon ex: (.8 C:B metered propane gun).

Well i see a problem. What if not everyone brings combustion guns, alot of people have pneumatics also. so what about starting and ending with a volley of all the attendees favorite guns?

IPLA isnt realy a real organization. its has no real management but is mostly just a bunch of people that like to shot stuff. if you want to do what you suggest everybody would only shoot once and also it wouldnt be as fun to have to shoot when told. rntt and modx's both have good and more realistic ideas.


Just a side not moderatorx and redneck one of you need to change your avatars i get confused and was about to rant about double posting

EDIT: 500 posts woo!

But I changed it anyways. :)

Just start your own man. (Although a 55gal drum w/ a 1/4" outlet is a bomb)
The Las Vegas meet always ends with a bang, so there is no reason for an organized 'Tradition'
