UPDATED!!!!

So turns out you guys like Sunday's better than Saturday's, but since some of you go to church Sunday's, I made the official date for the first meet Saturday the 28th of April. We will meet at 7-7:30am right in front of southbay rod and gun club. From there we will leave at 7:45 on the dot to the shooting area. Il talk to some other calgunners and see who's willing to meet up earlier to setup targets and shooting areas. We need to travel to the shooting area as a caravan since the roads are narrow and dangerous for cross traffic. Il bring along a cooler with some drinks. Be sure to pack a lunch if you plan on staying awhile. Also don't forget to bring plastic bags to pick up your shells and toilet paper incase the moment comes. Other than that please post a comment with a "IM DOWN" and if your bringing stuff for us to shoot, post it as well. We need gongs!! The more the merrier!


haha, i kid about the meet and shoot, more like meet THEN shoot. id like for this to be a bi-weekly or monthly meet. the location will be pm'ed to those only willing to meet with us as a group so we can all join in to have fun and pick up our own trash. not too far from southbay rod and gun club. you must bring your own food and drink since theres no place local to buy supplies. i also suggest not coming on am empty tank since the closest gas station is 15 miles away but AN HOUR DRIVE. of course be smart; no alcohol or drugs. also be sure you have proper identification since you will be checked at a BP checkpoint. make sure all firearms are legal. no in terms of rules for the range, there are some.

1. WE MUST PICK UP ALL TRASH INCLUDING SHELLS, nothing left behind to leave a good impression with the local ranger.

2. we can only shoot at targets with a sufficient backdrop. myself and a few other calgunners will be going this sunday to scope out the location and plan so shooting areas.

3. leave your beamer or mercedes at home. you need atleast a suv, truck, or a car with high clearance to go there. no need for 4x4 from what i saw, really all you need is clearance to avoid hitting the large rocks embedded in the road.

4. no destroying live wildlife or trees. NO EXCEPTIONS, unless its a rattle snake and your about to be attacked theres no reason to be shooting at anything but the targets we/you set up.

5. theres no bathrooms. plenty of bushes, if you need to go #2 then bring some TP or baby wipes and a plastic bag, no burying anything. we take home all waste except for urine.

6. not a rule but a suggestion, please dont bring along people you know who arent interested in shooting or irresponsible kids/teens/grownups. we dont want accidents or closing of the land.

thats it, you can go all full auto GTA dual welded on your targets as much as you want. be sure to bring some targets!!!

also for those who wish to bring higher powered rifles/handguns/shotguns. please remember to pick up your shells, i cant stress that enough.

so if your interested in going please say so in a post below, also dont forget to vote in the poll to pick a day. most likely a weekend but who knows!

as soon as i have a solid headcount il pm location info to everyone going. cutoff for headcount is monday.

Osophat, thanks for taking this on.
I picked Sat but also sundays are good for me....oh and every other friday.
I drive a lowered 59 chevy truck so I have to coordinate with the wife to use her truck, Still it's doable for me looking forward to it.

I'm in x2 (son included). Saturday works best, but Sundays can be done too.

Can meet up anywhere in SD to plan, just need some advance notice for family scheduling coordination.

osophat71
04-03-2012, 8:38 PM
im down. also il be contacting the ranger tomorrow to find out if i can stake steel gongs in the hillside for plinking. i think we would be good with maybe 4-5 gongs for timed challenge. the last thing i wanted to mention while its on my mind is if we can all pitch in, we could buy .22 ammo in bulk. not sure what brands or prices are yet but ive seen CCI blazers 5000 count for $140.

I voted for Friday and Saturday. I have every other Friday off.
Saturdays can get crowded out there, so if we chose a Saturday, we need to get there early and set up targets to hold the spot.

I can go Mondays or Wednesday's . I already go out to southbay every other Monday .im headed out there this coming Monday . If anybody else is going let me know. The weekends are too busy to head out there, so during the week is always a good time to go.

osophat71
04-04-2012, 7:48 AM
That's what I was thinking since I have seen it get some what crowded before. I'm sure if we go early enough maybe 4-5 of us. We can setup targets for our group

I can't say for sure I'd make it every time, but I live fairly close to that area(Jamul) so I wouldn't mind coming down when my schedule is free.

It definitely does get crowded on the weekends. It was deserted when I went on a Thursday, but both times I have gone Saturday and Sundays its been really crowded. Last time went out around 9am on a Saturday, had to do some driving around to find an empty area.

Just spoke with the LAW. We got the ok as long as no one tries to make a profit off of it and we stay under 40 people. Also sorry for all you hard core shooters but STEEL CORE AMMO IS NOT ALLOWED. Also we can put up gongs!!!

04-04-2012, 4:11 PM
Thanks for putting this together. I can go most any day. But I'll be coming from the north county. I don't have a truck but my friend does so I'll be riding with him. I have some steel plates a couple of "walking" targets I got at the gun show.

osophat71
04-04-2012, 6:40 PM
yeah!! this is becoming a reality! anyone is welcome to bring their gongs and reusable targets. as for the motorcycle, if you dont mind riding over gravel, rocks, and mud, then sure you can go there no problem.

on a side note, my wife wants to know if any ladies will be joining us?

Whos in for this Sunday?

Even though I had emergency surgery last night, I'm still going on Sunday! I don't care if it hurts I just wanna shoot. Also as an update, looks like Saturday is suitable for most, don't forget to vote for the days that work for you!

Also Sunday is Easter......

It's ok I understand, besides I had planned to go shooting for my birthday anyway 5 months back, just my luck that it came on Easter. I don't want you guys to leave your family to go shooting so don't worry about not going this Sunday, it's really just for some of us to go scope out the area to figure out where we can setup targets.

Well three of us showed up. Osophat and Agent88, it was great to meet you guys.
The area is pretty good for outdoor shooting. No cost factors into that opinion for me.
I set up and shot the Savage MKII at 50 yrds while Osophat and Agent88 kicked it shooting thier pistols. I got to shoot Osopahats GSG 1911 and now I want one. Also shot Agent's 22/45, that is a sweet pistol, I fell in love with the trigger and front sight.
My Savage ran flawlessly but I was not able to get the scope to hold zero, I finaly gave up about 1/2 hr after the other two guys left. I'll try again in a day or two.
A cpl pf pics as a bonifide.

enjoyed meeting you both. Next time I'll bring some steel (I need to buy some) and add my 10/22 to the mix.

We need a gong 50-100 yards out!

Don't have one but I've seen marlins in the big5 ad for around 150+fees. They post the ad on their website. Ruger 10/22s have been as low as 210-230.

Looks like you guys are planning to meet on the 20th, pm me for directions. I work both sat and sun so it's a no go for me but it would be nice to keep this going as a twice a month thing. Please remember to pick up all your trash and your casings, I can't stress that enough. Also to those interested in my health issue, turns out I'm allergic to nickel, yes the metal, which is basically in damn near everything including my gsg 1911. So now I have to wear gloves like a lady.

First time to that location(actually need someone to PM it to me) as well, but I'd be down to carpool. Where in Esco or we could meet at the transit center or something. Desertjosh - what time did you decide on? I canceled my plans for tomorrow(sat) so I'm not a zombie sunday so whatever time you are meeting, lets make it a great meet. I've got a target stand I can bring.

Around 8 or 9 is fine with me still. Theres no real address, its off campo rd right past the border patrol check point in dulzura. Its about 200 yards off the road that you have to walk. Ive never shot there but ive seen the cars parked outside the gate. It looks like it gets busy. We could also meet in jamul if you guys want.

dlichterman and I ended up going to the spot just past the BP checkpoint. There were a few other shooters there at 10AM. Luckily, a group left and we took their shooting spot. We were able to set up under a large tree and set up a target about 15 yards down a trail. There is also a permanent target stand that is there about 90ish yards down.

dlichterman and I ended up going to the spot just past the BP checkpoint. There were a few other shooters there at 10AM. Luckily, a group left and we took their shooting spot. We were able to set up under a large tree and set up a target about 15 yards down a trail. There is also a permanent target stand that is there about 90ish yards down. We ended up shooting there for about 3 hours.

It was a nice location, but don't forget sunscreen. This is gonna be hurting tomorrow.....

Glad you guys were able to get out there. I ended up going shooting, but much later in the day at South Bay Rod & Gun....

Can you PM me where y'all were at? I think I have an idea since I saw some cars parked a bit past the USBP point...

See you guys someday hopefully!

I'm pretty much free all weekend, I work nights normally so I'm not a big "early" person. Let me know what is good for you. Pm me.
