Oregon Shoot Administration Post

1. Please bring cash money $7 per person for the Blue Throne, and $10 per shooter. As usual, Snowhawk Jockey is the Bag Man. Please don't make him chase you down...

2. All shooters please plan on attending the 0800hrs 'Shooter Safety Meeting' on Friday morning. We'll talk about events, timing, and safety

3. Please make sure you are NOT bringing steel-core ammo (I'm looking at you, Russian Surplus....) to this event. I guess it goes without saying that you should also NOT bring tracers or Tannerite

4. 0800hrs. Saturday morning is the shlomo Salute in remembrance of our great friend, Mike Brennan. He came, he saw, he crushed it, and then he left us. Some of us want to raise a toast to the five-year anniversary of his passing, and there *may* be a bottle of something fitting - though I'll leave that to the experts. It'll be short, but I'm going to read something that Mike wrote. Others are invited to say something as they are so moved. We'll finish with a three-round volley of as many rifles as want to participate. For the sake of safety, this will be somewhat formalized, so be prepared to stand up, get in a line, and keep your rifles pointed above a 45* plane.

5. Loaded handguns around camp = in holsters. Please.

6. Loaded rifles around camp = Don't do it. Please.


Please post if I've left anything off this list, but please don't post if it isn't specific to this topic.

Questions are welcomed, as always.

Someone shoot an extra 3 rounds for me.

I remember sitting around the campfire, late
at night as usual. Conversation got deep of
course, and at one point Mike was quoting
USC code. I remember saying to myself, I have
got to hang with this guy. A lot!

The Lord decided he needed him next to His side
the following day. I give thanks for the opportunity
to have met Mike.

Yep, but you gotta bring your own vibrating wand. And can you put fresh batteries in it, this time?

He already contacted me to be sure I was bringing my generator. Says the 110 AC model {like the one he uses at home} is much more reliable and doesn't run outta juice after a couple of hours in..

Friday @ 1300 ~ Dos Equis Challenge.


There will be a detailed shooters meeting at 1300 hours regarding this stage, as it is new to most of the Oregon group.

Rifle racks will be on station- use them.

Actions open, bolts locked back, no magazines in rifles, and dust covers on AR-types OPEN. Yes, I am a prick regarding all of these rules on my stage.

The AR option is this-



https://www.brownells.com/shooting-a...prod24867.aspx

There are NO OPTIONS for other rifle types.


IF ANY of the above rules is an issue, bring your rifle to the line CASED, and I will instruct you on your procedure.

Actually It is from experience at certain past events, NONE of them were FAL shoots, of course !

Someday, I might tell you about them.

I am SO glad that my demeanor has mellowed in the last 10 years.

I never had the opportunity to meet Shlomo (Mike). I have heard what a great guy he was. I would be Honored to it have a toast and shoot 3 rounds.

The more the merrier!

Shlomo is still available, here on the files. He wont answer your PMs, but you can search his posts and peruse the countless quips, gems and pearls of wisdom.

Edit to add: brunop, what do you think of putting a highpower target at 50-100yds and we use it as an aiming point. Since we dont have blanks, it would keep the projos grounding sooner, where we can see them, than later, where we cant.
