12th Annual Oregon FAL Shoot (June 22/23 2018)

Official Shoot thread for this summer's Shoot.

We used to talk about food and other "assignments". Now we mostly talk mild trash and ask who would be willing to 'run' (host, manage, whatever) which events.

I'm guessing that 4x401 will do the Drop 15, and Tuscan Raider will do a Handgun Event.

Other events we've done in the past are:

Otis Event = multiple targets out to 500 (or 600)

3 gun = mini three gun thing

Team Shoot = 8x13 plates at 200

RowJimmy Challenge = 3 clay pigeons at 50 yards (iirc)

Moses Match = plate run @ 200

Mil-surp Bolt Gun = plate run out to 300

My suggestion only is that we do the following:

Friday morning = Handgun (set in stone)

Friday noon = ?

Friday evening = RowJimmy Clays (normal schedule - but we skipped this last year...)

Saturday morning = Drop 15 (set in stone...)

Saturday noon = ?

Saturday afternoon = ?

Saturday evening = King Shot (set in stone)

Can we get some feedback on which of these ^ events we want to shoot?

And after we get that feedback, can we get some volunteers?
"How we burned in the prison camps later thinking: what would things have been like if every security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if during periods of mass arrests people had simply not sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, ham- mers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand. . . . The Organs [police] would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers . . . and notwithstanding all of Stalin‘s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt." - A. Solzhenitsyn, Gulag Archipelago
