You sure the range is open to anyone? Don't give out bad info unless your sure. Not looking to piss anyone off, just would hate to have anyone turned away from such a good event.

I am sorry for the confusion but i did not give out bad info.
Wile you have good information, I assume you got this off the websight, let me make this clear we are not using the Rod and Gun Club, wile I use that location on a regular basis it is poorly maintained and not a covered range, plus it is inside the base.

The range i am reffering to is the CATM range used by our military for small arms training. it is located off of highway 1 on Butts road.

And this ^above^ is good information for those wishing to compete in some of are monthly matches at the VAFB Rod and Gun Club. JUST CALL AHEAD.

Good news! I've been trying to find people that shoot the Dewars to find out if it is worth the drive from santa barbara.

Also: I'm not sure if you're associated with the running of the appleseed event, but if you are, I'm an IIT if you need more hands.

Need to talk with Dano on that one, i am also an IIT also but only because i lack time to associate with project Appleseed more. I live up here and I am just coordinating with Appleseed and the base. We just received the range familiarization training on Friday. Dano is working on the date but we were talking June/July time frame. Again when I learn more I will share more but it is approved only need the date.

I would welcome more participants to the Dewars match. On a side note are you interested in going to LAR&R? i drive through Santa Barbara to LA for the NRA Matches mostly Prone but some 3-P. They host regular 2400's 3200's and a 6400 All American coming in July if your interested in those shoot me a PM and ill get you more Intel.

I assure you, this is on base property but not inside the Main Base area, that is what allows this event to be open to all.

this should help, the range i have for project appleseed is off of highway 1... hmm like you are headed towards Marshallia Ranch Golf course.

I work in that general area and it's NOT inside the wire. :D
Be aware though that VAFB does put out notices/warnings from time to time to stay away from the area due to "Live Fire".
I wouldn't go wandering around out there on your free time. The base Air Police can be pretty hard nose sometimes, and their Armed. ;)

Watching this thread for further info. Sure hope it's a go. :)

Ok my bust. the confusion :confused:
Your OP
"There is going to Be in Apple Seed Event Here At the Vandenberg Rod and Gun Club"

then,

I am sorry for the confusion but i did not give out bad info.
Wile you have good information, I assume you got this off the websight, let me make this clear we are not using the Rod and Gun Club, wile I use that location on a regular basis it is poorly maintained and covered, plus it is inside the base.

The range i am reffering to is the Cadam range used by our military for small arms training. it is located off of highway 1 on Butts road.



It's all good. just kinda odd..

Thanks to you are in order for organizing this event.

No offense meant, but a clarification I suggest is that it is CATM (Combat Arms Training & Maintenance) - not CADAM :)
