Sounds like fun but I don't know if I could make the 8-10 mile commute :)

Problem would be, what to bring?

I will see, now that I am 21 I can hit up the handgun ammo more often, means more shooting..

Anyone have any good ideas for exploding targets?

How about a cheap line on pumpkins? Better yet, use your weapon to "carve" your pumpkin.

You can get pumpkins at grocery stores for 3 bucks each.
there are good directions on the DFG website.
http://www.dfg.ca.gov/lands/wa/region2/oroville.html

i might make it
though i don't own any specialized zombie slayers
just a couple of deer slayers, mostly bolt guns in 30-06
some semi 22's
and shotguns of course
oh but i do have a lee enfield which was made for war :D

Thanks for the info. Can you tell me who manages the property? Is it DFG or BLM. If it's BLM, then I can't take my "legally registered" zombie killers on "their" property.

Come down 99, turn left onto hwy 162 and go over the afterbay. Approx 3 miles from the light, turn right onto Larkin road (just after the airport/industrial area). Drive approx 2.5 miles, there will be a small road on your left called Rabe Rd (there is a sign for it on the right just before the turn). Once you reach the top of the hill, the shooting area should be visible.

Gregchico
10-25-2009, 8:37 AM
As far as exploding or reactive targets, please don't forget that you have to haul all your shot up crap out after the fun is over. Fish and Game is looking for any reason to shut the place down.

Not only that, but I believe that exploding targets are not even legal to use here. Best to just shoot targets and make sure that EVERYTHING is taken when we leave.

I'm in +2. I might bring some target stands, if I have time to make them between now and then.

Flying Bones
10-27-2009, 8:22 AM
Ok...for clarification...

Dont bring anything you're not willing to haul away.
They rules state only paper targets and clay targets are allowed at the range.

It's going to be a lot of fun and a great meet for fellow calgunners! Did anyone else get a T-shirt?

Barabas
10-27-2009, 8:38 AM
I plan on bringing my trailer if I bring target stands. I can haul junk away too if need be. Do they have benches?

I've never been to the Oroville range, the DFG site doesn't have a whole lot of pertinent info on it.

Sounds good. Everyone should prepare to haul what they bring, maybe a little more no problems that way.

They have 8 or so benches, I can't remember off hand exactly how many.

The range extends out to 550 yds give or take. It's a decent place to take some midlength shots on zombies.

We wont be able to "reserve" benches, but the earlier we're there, the more benches we will have.

Bring a chair, you'll have no worries!

Great question.

How many of you will show up if it's raining?

Barabas
10-27-2009, 4:04 PM
My wife and I will, but my other +1 might flake if it's really coming down before leaving Sacramento. He's made of brown sugar and melts in the rain.

Flying Bones

Barabas
10-29-2009, 6:46 AM
I'm shooting for 8:30ish, but realistically, 9:30-10am or later given my +1's propensity for tardiness.

Flying Bones
10-29-2009, 11:06 AM
I'll be there early. We'll say start time 7:00am. Everyone has different schedules, but you can be sure that someone will be around starting at 7ish.

I will show in the early am with an AK if raining, more toys if not.....

Cjones38
10-29-2009, 2:21 PM
I'll be there early. Weather.com is showing 0% chance of rain and a high of 75 for the 95966. I'm thinking rain wont be an issue.

Flying Bones
10-29-2009, 7:10 PM
I've got about 40, yes 40, zombie targets printed up!

They're on 24"x36" paper so bring a target stand that you can staple one to and you can have one of my zombie targets! This are definate kid pleasers.

What do you have in the works?

Flying Bones

Any plastic bottle full of liquid with a threaded cap explodes nicely when hit.

I couldn't get the target frames finished before it got dark, so I won't be bringing those. Are there frames at the range, it looked pretty built up on google earth? Gotta have something to shoot at.

I'll be out there! had a late night tonight (friday) but I'll be out there hopefully around 10 if I can wake myself up early enough. My .308 700 needs new target practice with the new stock and bipod.

Just got back! What a sweet day! It was a blast shooting and slaying zombies, let me tell you. Could have had a bigger turn out, but there is always next time. Some good shooting, good people, sweet guns and zombies, cant really go wrong. Hopefully some pics will get posted up here in a while, but I just wanted to report that it was a great day of shooting!
