No, I got the bromance covered :rolleyes: All joking aside, I think this could be a lot of fun! Stop hating Gio, and make your way out to Panoche for a real zombie shoot!

But it's so much fun to tease you about your BroMance shooting date you set up a while back ;) Depending on what is going on and what day it is I will try to make it out. There is a Clean-Up Day set for the 17th of this month so I will be going up there for that or for a Zombie shoot. Main thing is getting my AK 47 Pistol in my hands before then ;) Either way zombie targets sounds like a whole lot of fun to blast at :43:

Turbinator - You mean just post them in other threads or start a new thread with a link to this thread? Sorry, never done this kind of thing before.

Actually, how about doing what I did - add the URL to this thread in your .sig file - that way everytime you post somewhere else, and someone reads your post, you get exposure?

This way, you can pretty much cross post in EVERY subforum without really spamming the board. :)

Sounds awesome
Some friends and I got together a few years ago in Panoche and had our own Zombie Shoot fest
66_-Hhumq_E


Was lots of fun and I drew all the targets myself. I wouldn't mind drawing up some more, if people don't mind shooting getto Zombie targets. Might help keep cost down. I still have something like 60 targets left, but can make more
I also have the stands I made and most did survive, so we could use those too.


I wouldn't mind putting a video together like the one above too, so everybody will have their own video to take home and watch over and over.
What I did with our's is tried to also add everyones pictures and vids to the CD they got, so they didn't have to look at everyones eles pictures... Because who wants to look at a bunch of dudes shooting zombies, when you can look at yourself blasting the undead... I mean who's cooler then yourself... LOL

Let me know
I've been thinking of doing another Zombie shoot and this may be exactly what I'm looking for.

LMAO.. I'm glad I could inspire someone...lol

I think I have probably around 20 surviving target stands.
They are made out of PVC and wood. I had help making them and we had a sort of assembly line going to get them all together. I think it took us around maybe 10 to 12 hours all together. I think we made close to 30 or 35 stands.
But sadly... well not really sad... with all the bump firing and rapid buck shot shooting some stands didn't make it... LOL

But If I can make it I'll bring all the stands and targets I can fit in my Durango. I also have a stock pile of milk jugs and 2 liter bottles. So I can bring those too. And if everyone wants and if I have room I'll bring my clay thrower and 200+ clay pigeons...

I'll see who I can get to come. The 1919 isn't mine, but I see if my buddy can make it.


man this is sounding more and more fun, now that I'm thinking about it

Maybe what might bee cool too is to list calibers that might be there too, so that and firearms people want to shoot, but don't own, they can bring ammo... As long as people don't mind sharing... just an idea


I'll get a total of how many zombie targets and stands I have and I'll let you know.

I wish I could participate, but you guys always seem to plan these events at Panoche Hills BLM the same weekend as the Gun Shows! I missed the Pinata Shoot due to the Cow Palace Show, I'm going to miss the Clean-Up on the 17th due to the Vallejo Show, and now I'm gonna miss this one cuz of the Cow Palace Show. LOL! I'll make it out there one of these days!

Well heck....if knucklehead is coming out I'll have to join in. If sorrenson gets on this we will have a timer so we could actually see who's the best for that magpul stock.

I had a target stand made out of PVC and it worked fine until I figured out my EOTech was off. Shot a couple pieces but it lasted all day long. Look up home made targets and it gives you good directions.

I like the idea of a moving target. That would be really interesting. Gives everyone a fair chance to see what they could do when one is coming at them. We all know some zombies are faster than others.

here was my original plan for my target stands..

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v213/GORZACK/Zombies/targetstand.jpg

You can see the frame that I made... the nice thing about the frame is it folds up pretty compact. the other part of the diagram is my plan on how to make head shots really count

- attach paper zombie target to cardborad backing.
- place loop of twine, string, whatever to back of cardboard right where zombies head is located.
- blow up balloon and attach twine to hang balloon from top of stand.
- slide balloon through loop on back of target.

Now when you shoot at the target the only way to drop the Zombie is to hit it in the head and pop the balloon.

that or just attach the target to the stand and only count head shots....

Well the 7th isnt a firm date, If there are a lot of people saying they cant make it and the following weekend would be better, I am cool with that. I was just throwing that out there. No this Zombie shoot has morphed into a bigger shoot than I expected, and with the fundraising aspect and larger number of people it might make sense to push it back a week to allow for preparations. We will have to see how fast people can get the *spit* together.

I think my work obligations for that time frame just cleared up, but I'm in Tunis' boat, the weekend of the 7th is problematic due to the Cow Palace show - I've volunteered to donate my labor, and will probably need to stop by the show to stock up on ammo anyway.

If anyone can get some hands on some old pallets or something, might be cool to set up barricade type shooting

I'm gonna try and get some more 12 gauge online... maybe OO and slugs

I would set it up to have more CQB then what is in the video, so shotguns and handguns can be used more. reactive targets are always great but involve a lot more setup and reseting. It would be awesome to do some driveby strafing from the back of a moving pickup at least for the video sake.

Looks like a lot of people interested. This is turning out great. I have a bunch of 2x4s that were cut up for Christmas tree stands that can be put together on the range, but they are small about 3ft long, but its cheaper then PVC.

Maybe we should do a poll to see when everyone can go.

If we are going to this as a night thing I will most likely sleep out there just to make sure all the zombies stay dead.

Naming the calibers is a great idea. I'll be bringing

ruger .45-if I still have it
10/22 .22
.223/5.56
12 gauge
7.62x54r-anyone is welcome to use some of my 7.62 ammo as its expensive if not bought in bulk

I'm getting excited:43:

Anyone planning to camp over night (if they even allow camping)?
It's gonna be a long drive back for some of us......

And last I heard BLM don't allow "paid" shoots (please correct me if I'm wrong).
Guys getting together to shoot is fine.
But paying to an organizer to shoot is a no-no.
I'm all for donating to then Calguns Foundation, but we should work out the logistics and how to legally get the funds to the foundation without BLM rangers shutting us down for our good intentions.

BTW....I hope to make it pending work.

I could really use the magpull stock. Sounds like fun to me. The RC cars will surely get wasted. Camping is allowed and I probably will.
But somehow, I'm afraid the donations will be spent on targets and ammo.


Maybe we can recruit some gang members or Home Dopot guys to wear these. That would be much more realistic than watermelons. ;)


This one is $12:

I don't think we should do a minimum donation, but we could try and get a raffle together... and anyone who donates is in the raffle and/or shoot... something like that... I sent an email out to a vendor and just waiting for a reply... But if we can't get a raffle going then maybe just donate something and you can shoot

I used to be a member of a SUV club and every christmas we would do a toy's for tots collection... and anyone who brought a toy got a ticket for a raffle... made it fun ande also helped a good cause... That's kinda my line of thinking for this

Just trying to get stuff together for a raffle... just some thoughts...

on a side note,
I did do my tally of target stands and zombie targets...
As it stands right now:
70 Zombie Targets
17 target stands
I may be able to make more stands if funds allow it

Hi. I'm really interested in coming! Me and my brother are huge zombie/gun fans. This is perfect!

Just bought myself a Mossberg 500a with 28" and 18.5" barrel with full stock and pistol grip. It's my first shotgun, not my first time shooting.


Hoping to head to Panoche Hills for the first time for some BLM shooting beforehand. I'd like to be able to load up more than 1 shell at a time ;)

So I googled directions from my house to Panoche Hills. But once I get there (the main sign).. where do I go for trap shooting and the zombie range later?


Thanks!

I don't think anything has been discused yet of exact location of the shoot... That would probably be a good idea to get locked down... LOL
I know there is a usual spot inside that most calgunners go to and meet up(not the one outside the 3rd gate)... Someone has a google map with it saved... Let me see if I can find it.


On a side note There will probably be a raffle. At least I know I'll be recieving some things to add to a raffle... not sure if anyone else, besides me, has had any luck with any vendors yet... Not sure on quantities yet, but I should have some things to give away to people...

Haha, guess you're right.

I've just never been to Panoche Hills.

I've only been to Shaver Lake with a group of friends for some good ol' fashioned clay pigeon hand-throwing shotgun shooting.

I'd like to be able to shoot some clay pigeons with my newly acquired mossberg 500a (which I literally pick up tomorrow at 10am) at Panoche without shell capacity restrictions (like at closed ranges) ;)

So I was wondering, when I go to Panoche, is the land past the "Welcome sign" fair game for public shooting? Of course I'd only fire in a safe enviroment (against a hillside, in full view of anyone, etc.)

LOL well I only got one vendor... Not sure exactly what yet they are sending, maybe a couple of hats, bumper stickers, and window stickers... not sure on quantities yet. I'm gonna call Weekender tonight and see if we can start getting things together... I thought that the Magpul stock was gonna be for whoever got the most head shots or killed most zombies with the best time or something like that?...

But Target stands might be a good idea... I only have 17 full stands, but I have 70 Zombie Targets... so depending on how many Targets we want at one time, right now we are limited by how many stands I have. Mine are like the picture I posted up above

I think a raffle is a great idea. All the prizes listed sound fantastic. Especially the mags :D. 10 or $20 sounds reasonable. It's for a good cause. The Rangers will probably show up sometime. Legal configurations only. Maybe we can get them to contribute also. We could charge them inspection fees.... $5 per firearm examined and $10 for each 4th ammendment right broken. ;)
The usual spot would work. I could post signs to direct newcomers to the area. Has a date been confirmed? What is the planned time frame? When can I pick up my new AR mag. :) ? J.

Hey guys, Baron and I are going to have a call tonight to discuss the logistics of the shoot. We will talk about everything we need to get, and how we will structure the event.

Current concerns are:
- number of targets
- Flood Lights (or Shop lights) / Generator - I dont see a good way of doing the night time shoot without them
- Overall Amount of tannerite

I've got 50+ pounds I can bring out. :D

at panoche! yesterday we scouted the area pretty well and the spot i think will be the best is down in the valley area to the right theres 2 sections divided by a little hill and what the game will be is a time of 90 seconds per a shooter and they will need to go around the hill to "aquire" their target and the one with the most head shot or BOOM :43: will win thats how i think we should do it

diginit
10-18-2009, 9:30 PM
That sounds like the usual spot. Is it? Is there a set of tire tracks (not a legal road) leading up the hill? What if there are 2 booms? No. of shots allowed? I run 30's in my SU. A printed list of rules would help clarify this. Just because I believe in fair play. (Don't you wish everybody did?)
I'll bring a small weber with extra space for anyone's whatever as usual. Some extra hot links or burgers. Cokes, chips, Etc. What else do we need for this to happen in good order?

I think Bob should call in sick. Or he will miss alot of fun like I did on the cleanup shoot. Maybe I'll start a poll to this effect.:D

As this shoot is becoming more sophisticated it is time to think safety. especially for the night portion. We are going to need some sort of night time standard color to identify each person. such as the neon necklaces you see at night events,perhaps we can tape them to our backs as I am sure most will be all mall ninjad out in camo.
I am by all means not a party pooper but we are now talking action shooter in an open environment and am sure many have never tried that before. We really need an RO with experience at this point.

Night time body illumination is a must. Also, a clearly defined range line that only the active shooter crosses.

I very much like the idea of the targets being on the other side of the hill from our staging area. No amount of body lighting will save us if someone trips in the dark with their finger on the trigger.

What ever you guys do, make sure to be on the safe side. Don't cut any corners with regard to range safety. As fun as a night shoot can be, the live range area should be lit up to provide adequate lighting to prevent any injuries. One screw up could shut Panoche down. Just my 2 cents.

how to make tannerite

The below information is for educational purposes only. I take no responsibility of its contents. I am not a lawyer or an expert. So if it doesn’t work, or you get in trouble with the law its your own fault. Do not email me questions about this.

Well after a week of people begging me to post the recipe to a "reactive target" I decided to type this up. I was going to have pictures and suppliers listed but the demand for me to post it has prevented me from finishing what I had planed.

This reactive target is very similar to a name brand version already popular to the shooting community. They share some similarities and some differences. My version does not produce as much smoke and only works in enclosed containers of about 10 ounces or more. The trade off is that mine produced a bright flash, which looks cooler.

This reactive target is similar to the popular commercial version (Tannerite) in that it's a binary explosive. Which means it’s made up of two parts, and why it is legal to own.

You must follow all the below rules or else you will be in violation of the law.

Rules:
1. The two parts must be stored and transported separately (in different containers).
2. Once you mix them together you must use them immediately. You cannot mix them together and then drive to the shoot site or store them. This is why its legal to use this mixture. When the two parts are stored and transported separately it is legal. However once you mix them together it is an explosive and must be used on site.
3. Use of the explosive must not harm any one or any thing(except for targets at the shoot site) or be used in any way that is unlawful.

Ok now that's out of the way below is the mixture.

95% AN 5% AL by weight

AN = Ammonium Nitrate
AL = ALUMINUM POWDER

AN can be found online or at a local agricultural/fertilizer store. It comes in a 50lb bags at about 0.27-0.33 cents a pound. Very cheap. Make sure you get the bags marked as

34-0-0

and NOT urea nitrate.

When you purchase the AN in this form its coated with a some stuff that allows it to release slowly so you must prepare it for use. This is very easy to do.

Go purchase a cheap blender (actually buy 2) at Wal-Mart for $13 bucks.

Next fill the blinder about halfway and turn it on. Grind the stuff up until its about the consistency of about table salt. Since every blender is different you will have to experiment with the correct setting to get it correct.

Since AN is actually pretty stable until around 840 degrees Fahrenheit the heat generated in the blender will not set it off. But to be safe do this in a well ventilated area with NO open flames.

Once its ground up I recommend you purchase some of those re-sealable paint buckets sold at Wal-Mart for a few bucks that are air tight.

Store it in this because it is hydrosorbic meaning it sucks up the moisture from the air. You can tell if its absorbed moisture from the air if it is clumped together in hard clumps. If this happens break the clumps apart and dry it out.

Now the AL is just as easy to prepare. You can find it online really cheap at about $7.00 a pound. You want to purchase it in 300-600 mesh but you can save some money by purchasing it in meshes less then 300 and grind it up your self with the second blender you purchased.

It's a good idea not to use the same blender you used for the AN because it can cause contamination.

To grind up the AL fill the blender up about half way. You want to get it to a very fine powder like flour. Since every blender is different you will have to see what power setting works the best.

Once its ground up I recommend you purchase some of those re-sealable paint buckets sold at Wal-Mart for a few bucks that are air tight.

Store it in this because it is hydrosorbic meaning it sucks up the moisture from the air. You cant tell if its absorbed moisture from the air if it is clumped together in hard clumps. If this happens break the clumps apart and dry it out.

Now that you have your two containers one with AN and the other with AL its time to go to the range. Once there to mix it together you are going to need a kitchen scale. You can find these at Wal-Mart cheap.

Start with the following to make sure it works:

100g AN mixed with 5g AL

Using a 20-ounce coke bottle with screw on top works best. Pour the amounts into the container and shake them up until they are mixed together. Remember once you mix them together you must use them at the site. You cannot drive or store the stuff mixed together.

Also remember the formula for mixing:

X * 0.05 = Y

X = Weight of AN

Y = Weight of AL to mix with that amount of AN



50 pounds of AN = 22,679.6185 grams

so using the above formula

22679.6185 * 0.05 = 1,133.980925

1133.980925 grams = 2.5 pounds of AL

So for every 50lb of AN you purchase you will need around 2.5lb of AL.

Now once the stuff is mixed the only way you can set it off is by shooting it with a .223 or above rifle or a number 8 blasting cap. Don't try setting it on fire, it makes a big gooey mess and around 840 degrees Fahrenheit nasty things can happen.

Once you have the stuff at the place you want to shoot it get back about at least 100 yards.

Have fun.


Ok below are some places I found to get the materials online.

E-bay has lots of people selling Aluminum Powder, this is probably the best place to get it.

Ammonium Nitrate can be hard to find locally if you don't live in a state that is primary agricultural. I found it was best to call around to local farm supply stores and ask. If they don't carry it, ask them if they know any one whom sales it. So long as you are not purchasing the stuff in huge amounts most people pay no mind.

You can purchase the stuff online, but shipping can be expensive to some areas.

This place has the stuff, the link goes to 50 pound bags for like $12, there online order cart didn't work for me. But you can call and order it that way with a credit card. Remember you want bags of 34-0-0 fertilizer.

ATF Regs.

17. Are binary explosives subject to regulation under Federal explosives laws?
Until the compounds are mixed, they are not classified as explosives and, therefore, are not subject to control. However, once mixed, binary explosives are “explosive materials” and are subject to all applicable Federal requirements. A person who mixes or combines compounds of binary explosives for the purpose of sale or distribution or for the person’s own business use is a “manufacturer” of explosive materials and must be licensed as a manufacturer under the law. [18 U.S.C. 841(h); 27 CFR 555.11: definition of “manufacturer”]


48. Is a manufacturer’s license required to acquire and mix binary explosives?
If the individual purchasing the binary explosives is engaged in the business of manufacturing explosives, i.e., mixes and uses them in the operation of a commercial business (for example, operating a quarry, or providing the service of removing stumps or boulders from a farm field), then a manufacturer’s license is required.
An individual farmer who merely wishes to mix the binary explosives to remove obstacles from his field and provides no other outside service would not need a manufacturer’s license.
Please note, however: A Federal explosives license or permit would be required to obtain any explosive device, such as detona¬tors, used to initiate the mixed binary explosives. In addition, transportation of any explosive material, including mixed binary explosives, without a Federal license or permit is prohibited. [27 CFR 555.11:


81. Is smokeless powder designed for use in small arms ammunition subject to the explosives storage requirements?
Smokeless propellants designed for use in small arms ammuni¬tion are exempt from regulation under 18 U.S.C. Chapter 40 and the regulations in 27 CFR Part 555. However, it should be noted that persons engaged in the business of importing or manufactur¬ing smokeless propellants must have a Federal explosives license. Additionally, smokeless propellant designed for use other than small arms ammunition is not exempt. Therefore, explosives products such as squibs, fireworks, theatrical special effects, or other articles that may be utilizing smokeless propellants are regulated and must be stored accordingly.


86. Are there storage requirements for oxidiz¬ers, such as ammonium nitrate?
In general, no. However, when a magazine or bin containing ammonium nitrate is located within the sympathetic detonation distance of other explosives or blasting agents, it must be stored in accordance with the table of distances in 27 CFR 555.220.

Ok I am in as turkey season opens on the 14th. Also have a coworker who will be making targets and has a generator. I have some flood lights 2 to be specific.they are good ones two lamps each on a tripod.

Also talked to my Snap-On dealer and he said he would kick in some stuff for the fundraiser raffle. Perhaps gloves and safety glasses and I am working him to give up a streamlight stinger.He is cool. A gun guy. If you need tools pm me and I can give you his info.He services Livermore and Antioch.

We need more people to show.

As far as being an R/O I have no experience but can help out if need be. I have an eye for safety.

Me and my co worker will be there early to help setup.

I'll go .. and bring a couple more with me most likely.

I have some zombie headshot targets .. I think they are from Zombie Squad's website. I'll copy a hundred or so. They aren't big, just 8.5 x 11 but would be great for close range targets.

I'll bring at least one RC car and try to have a target stand rigged up for it beforehand. I don't care if it gets blasted as long as I get some shots in before hand - and after. :D

.22lr, 9mm, .45, .223 and 12g at a minimum, might bring some others and not sure what my partners will bring.

I have a bright red Jeep, I can help run targets if needed.

I won't have room for work lights, generators, etc.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. The person who told me about this spot was saying it would be perfect because the terrain provides a backstop all the way around where we are shooting and would let us shoot at different angles, maximizing the amount of shooting we can do at once!

SJgunguy, perfectly fine for you to do in some yotes with your NVGs or optics, but good luck calling them in with the amount of gunfire that will be going on!

Shhhhhhhhh........ not really, who says we gotta be quiet?

How many pounds of tannerite were used on those yotes? We had the same idea for varmint hunting. Find a big nest of varmints, put 5 pounds of tannerite down, bait it, and then play the waiting game!

Self defence or the defence of innocent others, including livestock. I have no problems. To take a life to survive is acceptable even in the Bible.

Any word on the new spot? How did it look?

My friend and I went by Party America, or whatever the store is called, on Sunday to pick up some halloween decorations. There was nothing to get! I looked extremely hard for something to blow up...

Here is what i did end up getting:

- 5 pumpkins (2 large ones, and 3 medium size ones - Got them all for $10 bucks!) These gourds are extremely fun to blow up!

-1 unicorn pinata!

- 10 Pack of glow sticks with cords (I don't know about you guys, but for the nighttime portion I plan on attaching some glow sticks to myself to make me more visible...

-Picked up some Mall Ninja gear specifically for the event too - I typically would not do this, but it sounded like way more fun to shoot wave after wave of zombies in military like gear.

Did you try a spirit store? They always have halloween crap for sale through Thanksgiving.

Yeah I did try that store as well, I went last Friday. They had plenty of costumes and other junk, but no Halloween props like skeletons or anything like that. I have gone to 3 different places and found prop selection to be extremely limited :(

(I assume you mean a Spirit Halloween). There is one right next to my job, so I have gone over there a few times.

I gotta go by Oakridge mall, there's a party america and a spirit there. I'll take a look, I don't have much money but i'll see what I can do. Unemployment sucks.

Guys,

I'm looking forward to this meet like everyone else. I want to thank the guys that are organizing it and I hope we have a great zombie killing time.

I'm sure that safety is the number one factor here as there will be a considerable amount of people, guns, and tannerite.

Which brings up the main point of my post.

I have absolutely no problems with tannerite and setting things up to get blown up by it or setting things on top of a tannerite charge in order to launch it into the air. I get a huge kick out of it and I'm sure everyone else does, judging by the amount people are saying they'll be bringing.

However, I do have an issue with anything setup for "launch" at NIGHT. By launch I mean, anything of significant size, that will most probably go up a significant height and it being night, not knowing where it will come down. During the day this isn't too much of an issue as we can all pretty much try and run out of the way.

We've all seen videos of propane tanks, steel drums, etc, shooting hundreds of feet in the air. In some cases, right up, over and landing BEHIND the firing line. I'm sure we can all agree that this poses a big threat to our safety as well as our property (picture a 55 gal drum coming down on the hood of your truck).

I'm not trying to be a Debbie Downer, but just looking out for us.

I am 100% behind you on this one and this has been talked about and the last we spoke of i think we wont be doing much blowing up at night (target head shots was the only thing i was aware of or maybe pumpkin full of tannerite which is great idea someone brought up but i really dont think we are launching anything at all past dawn

I agree. objects should not be falling from the sky at night time. I have no problem with them falling during the day though.

Much good is coming out of the safety discussions. It would be important to make sure all shooters are aware of the rules. Maybe someone could write up the rules for a safe shoot and hand out a copy to all that show up. Also it should be agreed upon to assign a couple of guys to RO duties to keep order and safety on the minds of all if this hasn't been already discussed.

Hope all you guys have a great time and please take lots of pics for posting.

How many guys are going to the shoot who are from the east bay area, Concord, WC, P Hill, Antioch, San Ramon, Dublin area? Would it be good to caravan down together, maybe meet up before everyone hits the road at say, Ihop or some place for breakfast, eat, then convoy down together? It eliminates people getting lost and stragglers. We are planning to head out at around 9:30am, and be back later that evening. Who wants to join in? Gio? Baron?

Diginit,

I thought the same thing, but after talking with the ranger I have been enlightened. In fact, it turns out most of the critters are nocturnal and are active after nightfall. Some of them are stupid enough to not be frightened by loud noises coming from 50 to 100 yards away. There are even endangered types of mice there, just to give you an idea. I was at Richmond range a couple of weeks ago and a cat meandered accross the line of targets on the 100 yard line while people were firing very actively all around. Just saying if you see something dont get tempted... :43:

These are wild animals. They're smart and know how to survive. Not some stupid domestic that is used to the sound because it was raised next door.

This is Barons post about the other spot. Looks perfect to me. As laong as were not in a firefight from the high ground.



Sorry guys I'm fighting a head cold today...

But I did check out the second spot. It's perfect and yes you guys are correct on the location... The driving wasn't as bad as what was posted above. It seemed really really compacted to me and I don't see any reason why a 2wd car couldn't make it. I never had to put my durango in 4wd and never slipped or anything.

BLM did contact us. And yes they did tell us about the need for a permit for this large of a group. They are willing to waive the permit this one time due to us not knowing about it and there wouldn't be enough time to obtain one anyways. BLM is being real cool with us. They do know about everything we are planning for this event and they have no problem with any of it. I have talked with them personally and they actually do like us out there (CALGUNS) because we take out more then we take in and do a good job cleaning the place up. Heck Sunday I took out 2 garbage bags full of old Brass and cassings, plus some old shoes others have left out there. DFG was really the one who was getting worried, but BLM has talked to them and it's all good. Like I said BLM is being really cool with us. So I feel it's only fair to consider a friendly suggestion. Plus the location had a real "end of the world feel to it... Kinda like a "Hills have Eyes" sort of feel.

Here's some pics of the Location from Sunday

I think this spot would be perfect for the shoot.
There's good backstops all the way around. There's only one way in and out, so no chances of any random person driving through the shooting lanes. Also it will be easy to set up 2 shooting courses in opposite directions at the same time... as long as we have enough RO's...
Lots of room for parking and camping

I have recieve Items for the raffle, so that's pretty cool
But if some people don't want to go to the new location and want to shoot at the usual spot it's all good, I'll return what ever doesn't get raffled off.
I'll have my 17 targets and 80 plus zombies for whoever wants to shoot.
I'll send out emails tomorrow with the exact location, but it sounds like most people already know where it's at

Right now I have to get to bed and get rid of this cold in time for this saturday. So hang tight I'll be in touch people
