The last shoot/ clinic was awesome...Thanks again to Pete and Timberwolf for an awesome time.

Its now time to start planning the next shoot. So what do you guys want to do? Anyone have any good ideas?

When do you guys want to do it? I think it would be cool for the club to either go down to that palma range out by jicko (he is going to ask them about getting the club in there for a shoot), maybe a desert shoot, or maybe we could all show up to one of timberwolfs matches at a place to shoot....

I can't wait to start using everything timberolf taught me...

Well I'll put it the same vote I do everytime.. desert shoot!

As for the monthly match at APS.. we should all just go to that but still have a regular meet.

The Palma range is the one that has all the rquirements, right? NRA membership.. can only shoot on certain weekdays.. requires annual membership AND a daily range fee.. shooting on weekends requires you to shoot at a match first which then has more requirements and fees?

yeah palma is all weird but jicko said he would talk to them about our club and hopefully bypass all that bs

Unless you a big fat guy like me that is the best way to get some of this stuff for cheap.

I was thinking of getting some SCPRC stickers made up and wanted to know if anyone knew where to go to get them done?

we also need to figure out what logo we are going to use if we even want to use one.

I'm planning on making these and selling them at cost....

anyone want to try and design something?

Its only 40 miles from Bakersfield. And yes, there are PLENTY of places to camp and shoot. Lots of BLM land everywhere.

Wish I could get off to attend that - it sounds like a great class.

As to the next place to meet . . . well I can selfishly say everyone needs to converge at my match on 09/29 - it'll be the last night match of the year. I'm also up for a desert trip somewhere in between Mojave and and the junction down at the 395. Or y'all can come shoot at APS - I'll put out some additional (smaller) steel and some poppers up on the hill and maybe speak with the powers to be about getting a "club" discount for everyone.

Whatever we decide though I'll need a couple weeks notice, especially if its non-APS related so that I can make sure and get covered so I can get the day off. Now through Christmas is our busy time.

As to a club emblem I had toyed with a mild dot with So Cal Prec Rifle Club on top and One Shot One Hit below it for the books I'm trying to arrange a goup buy on.

Copper city rd in Barstow, it's about 1-2 hours from most of la/oc. Theres a couple good spots with plenty of room for tents, and you can shoot out to 500 yards. I'm going out there this weekend, so I can scout out the best possible area for a safe and fun group shoot if anyone's interested.

500 yards? We were spoiled by Pete's ranch. I dought we could do less then 800 and be happy.

Sure you could go further, possibly much further but, you will have to walk through a lot of brush and maybe a couple hills, which might be kind of strenuous for you old farts. JK

Timberwolf

We can do 500 yards at ASR - I need distance, the long distant sound of steel clanging on a distant hill, the faint aroma of coyote crap . . .

Then you're ready to go. I have a call I'll bring.

Last weekend I called in a bobcat to within about 15 yards. Didn't shoot him, just watched him walk around inquisitively. He ended up trotting off after he probably winded me.

If you guys are interested, I know a place to setup for coyotes thats about 10 miles from Petes place, on some BLM land. There are plenty of camping spots and shooting is just fine for miles around.

Uh oh - guess I'd better see if I can find one of my old licenses (haven't had one in about 2 - 3 years) so I can get one. Wonder what a 175SMK will do to a song dog.

With their relative overpopulation and the havoc they wreak on domestic animals (as well as other game animals), I will kill evey effin' one I see. We've had quite a few domestic turkeys get nailed by those fleabags. Its not necessarily for pleasure, its depredation. It just so happens I do derive some pleasure from it.
Jason- I can go out every weekend. I'm gone this weekend for deer, then the next for ADA convention, then I fly out for Texas. I'll be back on the 6th. Its a holiday weekend if you guys wanted to stay at Petes place and we could hunt a couple days. Let me know.

I'm also not into the coyote hunt idea either.

If we're going to do 'yotes shouldn't we wait 'til it gets a little cooler so their pelts are a little fuller and not so skruffy. Don't know about up there but around the desert they're looking rather rough.

There are specific game tags for deer, bears and pigs at additional cost.

I'm in for whatever - I've got a class the weekend of 10/13 & 10/14 (most of which will be in the desert shooting little targets far far away) and don't know my scedule for APS for October yet.

My offer still stands for APS - don't mind doing a little extra to accomodate.

Lets just get something set and shoot.

any hint, of what stages are going on? 800yard + cb, and 100yardish 5 dot, moving target, and what else?

i ain't afraid of trying anything, worse comes to worse and i don't hit it, i'll keep practicing it till i can shoot it consistantly for the next time.

09-20-2007, 4:58 PM
The only thing I'll confirm is there will be a CBS stage and a 100 yard dot drill beyond that I haven't decided yet. I'm pretty sure there'll be three stages precision and 2 tactical.
