Truly some of the classiest people I have had the pleasure to meet.
If you are within a few states, this is the place to be next summer.

No kidding - I wouldn't know what to put together if I hadn't been reading other people's shoot threads.

It would be great if we had several hundred acres to play on, and we could get 400 to 600 yards out of the deal, but we aren't there yet.

I'd love to see the Stimpy Shoot, FAL Fest, and Oregon FAL Shoot get on regular schedules two or three weeks apart. I'd like to see some brave soul complete the trifecta next year...

The front sight is off more than an RCH, but he already confirmed that the windage was 'right' (clicked three to the right and then counted '17'. Since 14 is 'normal', everything was good. Elevation, though, is another matter?

I think the AR was normal, but there isn't enough shooting time with it. The Mosin, however, had to have been knocked around when it fell off the car.

i know that guy well enough to know he wouldnt just leave the mosin only to run over it by accident. he had the jitters going on and to get out of owning up to sucking he left it there on purpose so he would have witnesses attest to him running over the front sight. and furthermore id like to point out the fact that he stated over and over he wasnt going to shoot at all until he realized vagabond wasnt gonna show

That one is going to be talked about for an entire year. Or more.

I was thinking that I might be a little burned out on setting up the FAL shoot, but this is just whetting my appetite again. I can't wait 'til next year - there's so much to see and do. And witness.

Here, here just can't wait. Just leave's you wanting more!!!

And we all know that maybe, just maybe if that lil bro of mine wasn't so dang cocky thinking he was gonna take the Drop 8, with just those eight rounds I just might not have taken third n kicked his ASS with a whopp'n 20 seconds to take out 8 guys Swweeet (so does it count that they where just standing still!!?)
Just a real feel good moment Couldn't have ever done it without my trusty spotter.

Damn. You people know how to cook and eat. I've never been to oregon but have been to washington state quite a few times. I think the north west has some of the best scenery in the country imo. Jerrys photo of the top of the mountain and the creek are nice.

Looks like typical falers to me. Shootin, eatin, sitting around bs'in, and enjoying the outdoors together. I might have to attempt the trip one of these years. Probably an awesome drive.

now now mrs beginners luck. i know it may seem cocky to only load 8 but one must attempt to set lofty goals and do their best to reach them.

and really i didnt feel like i was competing with any1 but myself and i even that was half hearted.i really felt relaxed and was just enjoying the activity as well as the chance to talk smack to all my closest friends. by the end of the day i was doneage. i played pretty hard all weekend i think the quads and resetting the targets took it out of me.

hats off to jeff and greg for staying on top of it the whole time. and every1 else seemed to pitch in where it was needed well almost every1. jeff-
that was a ton of work and i couldnt be happier that you were the one that took the day as far as shooting goes. i was impressed i was glad to see you finally decided to stop being that guy dan o your shit was un fu$Kd that day

Nope...I'm not the guy who runs over his own rifle with his Jeep just to avoid having a bad day on the range. Don't forget sonny....I was shooting LE qual's while you were still filling your Underoos and pissing down your own leg while your mommy changed you. Just sayin' I've DONE bad days on the range a'fore.

Truth is, the Mosin accident was embarrassing. 1800 played a part in that afternoon and were I not in the wilderness, it never would've taken place since the Jeep wouldn't have been moved while I was in that condition. No matter, I've inspected the rifle and don't see where anything got "adjusted", either from the run-over or by "outside forces".

Tuscan's confirmed he was referring to the watermelons but his post infers some trickery to a rifle, hence the statement..."might have to do something like that to brunop's FAL next year".

VG's denied any wrongdoing and I'll take him at his word (just as soon as I shoot the AR at a 25m zero target and see if the elevation's been changed).

Hey pink....don't let your brother get to you....you truly had a great day of beginner's luck!

Oh, and the day I don't shoot a match outta fear that someone...ANYone might beat me hasn't and won't happen. Vagabond's rifle marksmanship isn't what needs addressing....it's me smoking him and that damn spastic-plastic pistol that needs to take place in front of others. THE 1911 WILL REIGN SUPREME!

Whew!!! That was close.

And now I'm going to be hiding my watermelons, pillows, and rifles - not necessarily in that order.

Pink308 - it isn't beginner's luck. You got in a good groove and did your thing 8 times in a row. I was saying that you want to make the groove happen every time, and that is what takes practice.

Remember, everyone, that next year is only 51 weeks away. I hope Vagabond and his plastic pistol show up...

10-4. Depending on your route you will see some really big country along the way. We hope you show up some time when it works for you.

Peace.

pluskat dont be such a gay its called joking. only its in written form so its hard to know the context and connotation or intent in writing a joke. your paranoid ocd tendencies coupled with terrible punksheashen is whats causing you to assume any1 making a reference to you is calling you out.and id like to point out your a va jj i know vaga would have to make this a priority to have a chance at showing you up. now as to your issue w the glock i gotta say im willing to take that challenge on myself and go head to head glock against the 19asaurus rex. and no one messd w ur gun and yeah i know i know clearly your like 40 years older than me so i would naturally assume youve been shooting guns since the great flood of 53. no need to get all vagged up and serious w me and throw down the LE reference.....again.

id also like to point out that i in no way intend to diminish how well pink 308 shot that day. im psychd that she did that well and am glad that one of my sisters shares in the fun of shooting w me. however if shes here on the board and hanging w us i think girl or not she deserves to take some grief. so please keep the mr nice guy crap to yourself she knows what being picked on means and she can take it. she is a good shot and every time ive gone out with her shes impressed me.now if we could just get her to train that damn dog

Where was the exact location for this shindig. If I google directions to Oregon it takes me to the center and says 1 day and 5 hours. I'd be going through Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah and Idaho before getting to Oregon.

So yeah i'm betting it'd be nice. Though I hear kansas is super flat. I've only been to Trinidad in Colorado but lived in Utah for a few years. It has nice scenery in places. Also lived in montana which has similar forests and such as washington/oregon.
