    Hi Folks,

    So it's been mentioned in a few posts but it's time to make it more official. A few of us are planning a testing event in South East Florida, somewhere between Port St Lucie and West Palm Beach, the exact date and location is TBD, but we are thinking to do it between Christmas and New Years and I have a few sites scoped out that should be good. @drtoddw will be in town and would be providing our testing equipment. He has Lidar guns including the Prolite, Ultralyte Compact, Truspeed S, DETC, and DESL. One of the dragons is an older firmware, the other is new. He also has some Radar guns as well, so perhaps we might do a little radar max range testing on a nice 12 mile flat straightaway if time and interest permits.

    I would LOVE to have a Stalker XLR/XS/RLR to test with as well as it's a super common gun and seen a lot in this part of the state, if anyone has one they would be willing to loan or rent to us please let me know. We will have ALP, TMG and maybe even Blinder HP905 in the mix so it should be an interesting event to see how they all do against the guns on hand.

    Plan would be to meet up before hand someplace near the testing site (grab coffee etc) to go over test conduct, fill out the testing sheets I have made up with vehicle and setup info and ensure that everyone has their systems setup for testing. This will level set everybody on how the testing is conducted and give us all a chance to meet each other. We will head over to the chosen test site and perform the test. Ideally one person who is not actively testing can sit with the shooter and write down any punch through distances that occur on the testing sheets as we go so we have good records at the end of the test as to how folks did. At the end we can provide result sheets and evaluate any setups that failed to perform well and perhaps tweak them. After testing if folks want to hang or grab food we can do that too :)

    If you are interested please let us know, and we will get the dates and locations out when plans have finalized. If there are any days in that week that you can't work with let us know, we will do our best to try to find a date that most can make. It's around the holidays so hopefully some folks are off work, but at the same time folks may have plans with family too, we will do our best.

    Feel free to tag any others that are down this area or might be interested.

    I'm interested! Ideally, the weekend would work best for me, but a M,W, or F would be possible given enough notice.

    I'm off the week of Christmas so this would definitely be of interest to me. I'm finally getting my TMG three head setup installed this Saturday so this i perfect timing. Thanks to @thebravo for organizing something. I'm a located in St. Pete so this will be a bit of a drive, but based on the guns would definitely be worth it.

    I'll let everyone know when my plans are a little more certain. I will be down in the area from the 24th through the following weekend (and perhaps into the first part of the following week).

    I will also update within this thread as my schedule becomes clearer.

    Yea I know it's a drive but it's fun and we can make a day of it between laser and radar stuff and grabbing some food/drinks :)
