    Let me know if anyone would like to meet me at our facility in Franklinville to see if it would work. Our warehouse is currently full of items that we're sending overseas to Troops, but it should be empty in about two weeks, and available. Just let me know. SpareRib

    Franklinville would be great for all the Davie co. CSC guy's.
    I am all in for this. Maybe RJT can bring his hot dog wagon.

    Sounds like an awesome idea. If anyone here is on the Lightfighter forums, members there do similar meetups all the time that seem to go well-beyond very good. My timing always sucks for making one, but there is always BBQ, shooting, camping, etc..
    Both the place in Dunn (Easy access via I-95) and the Triad Tactical facility in Franklinville both sound like solid options if feasible.
    I think pinning down a date is the most difficult part.

    I've also got a large BBQ cooker that can be used. Haven't cooked a pig on it yet, but sure did damage to a goat! Let me know if any one would like to visit our facility in Franklinville or if you're in the area, just stop by and ask for Sam or Donnie. SpareRib

    That almost puts you in Ramseur, doesn't it? It definitely puts you near the Blue Mist, a favorite place to stop of mine when I used to trip to Raleigh regularly. :)

    Yes, right down the road from the Blue Mist. Great place to eat! Our facility is located between Franklinville and Ramseur.

    Timing will depend on whether work permits me to attend. If I am around I am definitely in.

    Are there any special laws that must be observed to have this Swap Meet? Is it like a gun show? I will check with my partners at Triad Tactical Training Center and get some dates that would be good for our location. It it's around Labor Day or shortly there after, we should have our 400 yd. rifle range open. Of course, if the members would prefer another location, that's okay too. I'm sure it takes some time to get this event properly planned, organized and marketed, so it is important to pick a couple dates that are available soon. Count me in to help. SpareRib

    I have nothing to offer in the form of a venue, so all in all my opinion matters little -- but I think if someone could host it at the time (Triad boys???) then, Saturday, September 7th looks like a pretty good date. (Too bad 9/11 didn't fall on a weekend!). Plus, having it on the 7th would help pass the time as it creeps by the day before the NFL season starts!

    Okay, Gang, I haven't seen any more responses about this Swap Meet. If we want to use our facility in Franklinville, I need to nail down a couple potential dates. Sept. 7th and/or 14th could work for our location. One thing that everyone needs to know about our warehouse is that there is no air conditioning (yet) in the warehouse; which can be tough on a short-fat-man like me (I'm a professional eater!). Waiting for a little cooler weather (Oct?) may be better. We have tens-of-thousands cases of cookies and coffee that we're shipping overseas to our troops and if we're going to use our place, I have to make sure that the warehouse is cleared of all these items before we can have the meet there. I'm very new to this group and I've never put together a Swap Meet, but I'm willing to dive in and do what I can to make this happen; either at our place or another. I'm not really sure who I should contact to get this ball rolling?? If you know, please send me their contact info and I'll make some calls. Thanks! SpareRib

    Rib-my $.02.....

    Pencil in a date that works best for you and your facility and roll with it, start a new post and keep it bumped every few days to keep the word out there. There are 14,000+ members here and not everyone can make it work.

    Hey Gang, I've taken Butter's advise and my partners and I have scheduled Oct. 5th as a date that we'll open up our warehouse and range for a Swap Meet. Our facility is located at 5068 US Hwy 64 East, Franklinville, NC 27248. Our training facility is called Triad Tactical Training Center, LLC or T3C. We're a work in progress, and have just opened up to 25 yard pistol pits. Our goal is to have our 400 yd. rifle range open before Oct. 5th. Putting this event off till Oct. 5 gives us time to clear out our warehouse of the items we're shipping overseas to Troops and the weather will be cooler. If anyone would like to help plan this event,please contact me ASAP.

    Thanks!

    Thank you SpareRib for taking the initiative by picking a date and offering a location. I have placed it on my calender and look forward to meeting other CSC members. I would also be willing to help organize. Feel free to PM me with needs.

    What time will you open the doors for people to arrive? I suppose everyone should bring their own tables/chairs to set up in your warehouse?
