I was thinking of having a camp and shoot at the ranch sometime soon befor it starts to snow,Any interest? let me know.
I`m looking to keep the groups small under 10 to 15 folks we have camp sites with water and outhouses they also have BBQ and covered cook areas.
Their is a nice pistol range and we set up a rifle range from 100 to 300 yards and I might have the 1000 yard targets set up by that time.
I`ll post the prices later tonight.The ranch is by Moutian High Ski Lodge in Pinon Hills.

I was actually thinking one would be fun on BLM land... if you can camp on BLM lands, that is.

Yea there's BLM land that you can camp on, although I'm not sure if there are places where you can shoot and camp. They might not allow shooting in camping areas for obvious reasons.

Meh, as long as they're within a mile or so of each other.... I don't live too close to BLM land, AFAIK, let alone land that'll let me shoot. Anything shorter than an hour or two beetween the shooting and camping is acceptable to me.

Well, I just found out that we will not be in the SoCal area until pretty much the Xmas weekend. I thought we would be there mid-December or so.

I'll catch this one on the next run. Please keep me updated. :)

However I live in the area so I don't know if I would necessarily want to camp. Maybe I could come by for the shooting?

Open for everyone I think the first one should be kept small 10 to 15 shooters, I`ll call them and confirm a couple dates then post them.

Perhaps some basic ground rules of shooting.

Like types of target that is allowed. Is it just paper or can people bring reactive targets? I like shooting at a fully shaken soda cans.
Clay targets ok?

Is there bench for shooting or do we bring our own?

Those are few I can think of.

Sporting clay`s we have a area for that too but we dont have any throwers so if your interested in shootin clays you`ll have to being your own:)

Just let me know when :) By the way.. I'm not using those "warm" .44 rounds at the indoor range anymore. It a 25 yard range, but I still get stuff flying back at me! I had the blood to prove it! They are accurate as heck I must admit though. I shot 1.5" groups (offhand) at 15 - 20 yds using those loads. Must start reloading.

Don't remind me. Lowered Acura RSX with nice soft race tires. You'll make it.. but don't do it if you love you car. If you don't mind going slow and getting dirt in every crevice of your car.. go for it! It's not a steep path.. just bumpy and dirty.

My girl is running a spare on her SUV (secondary vehicle) right now. As soon as we get that replaced i'll be back up guaranteed.. hopefully this weekend. And no.. I will not shoot the Wolf .308 through my rifle :)

Fallow the Big Jon signs I`ll have up from here.

Just to let everyone know the ranch is now colsed to the public and you will see signs saying no entry as long as you tell them your with Jon you wont have any problems. Also please don`t shoot from the roads going into the ranch, some Cal Gunners wanted to hit the hicking trails and shooting at Jacks or Quail by the roads won`t be a good thing, thanks big jon

Wow! I just found out about this. I heard some mentions of the "big camp & shoot" in other forums, but had no idea what they were talking about. This sounds fantastic!

Unfortunately, I have a prior commitment on Saturday and I need to utilize Sunday for last minute cramming before my final (I'm working on my Master's part time). I definitely want to be kept in the loop for any future C&S's. My wife would love it, too.

Y'all have a great time!

I would really like to see some OLL builds if anyone has them. Especially one with a MM grip. I had to sell my lower to pay some bills awhile back but I plan to get another and build up this time and I want to see what others are doing up close.

I don't have a monster but you are welcome to try my U-15 detach mag stock

Thanks. I hope you will be there on Sunday. I plan to be by at about 9 or so.

The closer we to this the more excited I get.
