Thanks for that. Haven't seen those for a while. That wasn't really that long ago.

Well I know it won't be the most important thing to him, but you might as well tell him that there will be a bunch of guys out there hoping to shake his hand and tell him 'Thanks'.

I'll be first in that line.

Bump to remind anyone who cares even a little bit that the shoot is LESS THAN 90 DAYS AWAY!!


And to say that this schedule of events from the early part of this thread:

1400 to 1700 = 3 Gun (brunop)
1900 to 2030 = Rowjimmy (Brush511)


Saturday

0800 to 0830 = Safety Meeting
0830 to 1200 = Drop 15 (4x401)
1000 to 1400 = Moses Match (12v71)
1400 to 1600 = Bolt Gun Run (Tailback)
1730 to 1830 = Dinner gathering
1900 to 2030 = King Shot (Everyone and No One)

Should probably be adjusted so that there isn't so much overlap between events - as this kinds screws the 'hosts' of each event. Looking for feedback, and suggesting that Friday looks like:

0830 = Safety Meeting
0900 = Handgun (TR)
1200 = Otis Match (Otis61)
1500 = 3 Gun (brunop)
1830 = RowJimmy (Brush511)


And Saturday looks like:

0800 = Safety Meeting
0830 = Drop 15 (4x401)
1200 = Moses Match (12v71)
1530 = Bolt Gun Run (Tailback)
1730 = Dinner gathering (everyone)
1900 = King Shot (everyone & no one)

Well hopefully I will be able to make the trek this year....don't know what is happening as of yet, but Momma and I have been talking about finally taking a bit of a vacation. Always dependent on work and available funds. I've been looking about for a 4WD pickup so a bit of my funds are tied up in that.

...speaking of which...if you guys happen to know where a decent 4WD pickup is with a manual gearbox and a V-8 (that is not a whole lot) is I'd like to know...

Long time lurker finally getting involved after many years. I am planning
on attending. Nickmil, 4x401, and Elkaholic have spoken highly of these
get shoots. No problem loading up the vehicle with rifles, ammo, tent,
food and booze.

Where exactly is this event?

Ft. Moe Spambo??

That was a stupid question...

Be good to see you there. For many reasons we don't divulge the exact location in open forum. We send out that info by pm. I can tell you that the general location is around Pine Mountain Oregon, approx. 35 minutes East of Bend.

Yeah I saw that. Since I would be sleeping in a tent, I am not sure if I want
to go camping this time of year. Is this shoot east of Yakima?

Sorry, just saw this Spambo. The shoots just S.E. of Prosser, in the Horse Heaven area. Current forecast is lite rain Fri/Sat, daytime temps upper 40s - low 50s. Overnights low 30s.

Lotza tents at this gig, myself included. Its not as uncomfortable as most would think.

WA. Will have to look at a map.

We (and I don't remember who "we" is...) agreed that we (meaning 'I') are going to print and post this schedule around camp so that we all (shooters and event 'hosts') can count on certain times to be 'on' and certain times to be 'off'.


Also looking to remind people of this little tidbit:




and to remind everyone of two things:

a) it's probably time to pack the truck, and

b) it's probably time to get that pool going on what time I arrive Thursday. And who is setting the over/under on that deal?

Should I throw in a Garand and a poodle popper?

UPDATE:

I spent the entire day today with cancelations and re-routes and more cancelations and more re-routes and more cancellations. Basically I flew to Detroit, hung out for the day, then flew back home. I am now back at home and will NOT be at the WA shoot in the morning (grrrr).

Not yet sure what my June looks like, but the OR shoot is now back HIGH on my radar

That sucks.

The Washington shoots are fun and a bunch of good guys I like the Oregon shoot a little better because I can bring some toys that are not aloud in Washington.

Elk I'm skipping this one too but even though I like that long range match in WA you have, I'm going to skip that too. I'm playing down my shooting to save some money and make some family brownie points this weekend(shhh).

I'll still try to make the Oregon shoot but I will be tenting from a high mpg sedan if I can swing it and no ATV for resetting targets. Somebody should bring one.

That is more guns than you can shoot in a weekend unless you show up Thursday for the 'sight in' and plinking.

Or, alternately, you can shoot a different rifle in each of the different events and see how that works out. Sometimes I go this route. We're not set up to be very competitive, as we frequently have guys with comped ARs and scopes shooting against guys with Garands.

Just depends on what you want to do, but I always err on the side of too many guns rather than not enough.

Invictus77 -

Dude, that sucks so hard. I was hoping to see you and introduce you to some of my clan. OTOH, there will be many more of my people at the Oregon shoot, so on a personal note we can wait the 8 weeks.

I think most of the guys from the WA shoot are going to be at the Oregon shoot this year. You might kill two birds with one stone...

No doubt. I've still got steel, chain, 2x4s, and deck screws in the van from the February thing. I doubt I'll get it out of there just in time to put it back in...

Yeah. Mark was sure from the beginning that this activity was stealing from PP. It might be, but PP themselves make it difficult to figure out by their own guidance on their own website - which is quoted by another poster.

Meanwhile, I don't give a damn what he thinks, because he has a selective memory about his own awesomeness.

Just depends on what you want to do, but I always err on the side of too many guns rather than not enough.
Thanks for the info. I'll bring the .308 rifles and leave the poodle poppers at home.

It's a pretty big maybe for me, but if I can get enough time off, I will really try to make it. Put me in the maybe list. BTW, The Washington Spring Lead Fling was a hoot.

You know what that means, right?


Time to shoot rifles to get ready to shoot rifles.

Shot today while working a boring day at the range.
Might have a new drop 15 toy.

It is with a heavy heart that Tom and I must drop out of this gathering. Big sisters Senior graduation is now scheduled for June 9th at 6.30pm, so there's no way for us to get there in time.

Delighted for my girl, totally bummed that I'm going to miss this one yet again. Still, it's a once in a lifetime milestone for my eldest baby and we have to be there.

That is such a giant drag. I sure was looking forward to seeing you and Tom there.

But this makes sense - you gotta do what you gotta do.

But wait, just clear up one thing for me...

If I'm going to be HERE... who's going to in my place standing around the campfire drunk and making German Scheisse jokes?

No one is going to fill those shoes.


I suggest a cardboard JonnyP cut out. Everyone can take pictures and put them up on the Files. A few weeks after the event it'll be *exactly* like you were here because you won't remember much about it anyway, and the pictures will be the main proof.

Fabulous!

I'll Fedex two black trash bags of Chinese asbestos and lead plushy stuffing that you can randomly spread over the range for Jonathan to pick up at dusk on Saturday. That way he won't miss out either

Better throw in a half bag of kitty litter so that the "British Hack" shoes are properly filled

Tuscan Raider seemed to be familiar with the concept. Tailback also spent time in the Land of Very Organized People, so he probably also knows about Scheisse jokes. They will not, however, deliver the humorous side of Scheisse in the same incisive way.
