It will be on the 16th. Since I am unable to confirm a spot for certain (I dont want to waste anyones time) so we may move this to somewhere near Dulzura. A member has said they know of many spots that need to be cleaned.

If you're in, post in this thread. I would like to meet between 9 and 11 am. Post if you have a truck (pending on exact details, 4x4 might not be necessary). Might be a good idea to get at least 2 people per truck so fuels costs can be split between the occupants.

I will be there. I have a rake, shovel, and some 5 gallon buckets.

I can make it on the 16th. If we can get to this place in a truck without 4WD, I am in with one other person. Please let me know.

THE 16th IS ON!!

candrews0480 has contacted me and says he knows of a location(s?) near South Bay Rod and Gun. If this works out, great. If not we will go to my location, about 40 minutes from Downtown. I cannot guarantee it will be a dirty location but hoss_hk has implied that likely it will be dirty. Either way we can meet one another and work on putting a name and a face to our screen names.

I will likely have calguns shirts for sale ($20 - all proceeds go back to calguns) plus some stickers and paraphernalia to give away for free if anyone is interested. If you want a shirt, let me know your size and I will see what I can procure.

I am also in, but I need to hear what the terrain is. I might be able to get a truck but it won't have 4WD, so we we need 4WD to get there I will probably have to park and bum a ride from someone. That's OK I can still make it that way.

I don't see the list on the first post being updated. Will it be? Is the op going to PM us with the directions to the place? If we need to meet up to ride in we will need to figure that out also.

That sounds fun. I am down. I drive a 2WD pickup, and may bring a friend. I am coming from Clairemont.

I can bring trash bags, and haul them back out.

I don't have a lot of ammo though. Anybody know where I can pick up some 5.56? or 22LR? Or have extra they can sell me?

musick
02-06-2013, 5:47 PM
Quick update.

Hopefully this can become a regular thing. Also i need to know what kind of terrain we will be facing.

As soon as i find out which vehicle is appropriate, i'll set up a pickup schedule for any tag alongs.

Adam

According to gmaps, the terrain looks manageable for a standard pickup. 4wd should not be needed.

I'm in for the 16th. Me and a friend. I have my 2wd grocery-getter jeep. If we're going out near South Bay Rod & Gun 2wd is all you need. I was out there a couple weeks ago and we had a great cleanup. I'm ready for more!

Glad we're doing this. Hope we can make it a regular thing. Thanks for putting it together!

Its more North than SBRG, but in the general area. I hope to make a cleanup happen every other month at least. It depends a lot on how this one goes.

Hope to see you out there!

Please count me in. The location by SBRG does not require 4x4 but a truck or SUV is recommended. I drive a Dodge Journey (crappy SUV/crossover) and it can make the trip but barley. Parking in both locations is limited so carpooling would be a good idea. I have sent the locations I know of to Musick. I would be willing to pick up one or two people along the way from Escondido as long as it's not too far off the 15 frwy and your willing to chip in on fuel cost.

Quick update everyone - the access rd entry might be locked. That means we might have to park on the side of the rd, hike ourselves (and our gear) a few hundred yrds to the site. With this in mind - PACK LIGHT!

Additionally, sd_fire is working on finding a spot that might be another 15-20 min. drive but we could drive right to the clean up spot. He will be getting back to me early next week.

I will post updates when I get 'em and will put together a list of essential gear to bring.

EDIT: I have 3 locations passed on to me (Thanks candrews0480) but it is a bit further South. Good news is the areas are in desperate need of a clean up. Its going to happen either way.

musick
02-08-2013, 6:07 PM
The 3 locations passed on to me is 35 minutes from the 125/94 freeways and we can drive directly to the site.

Sound good?

Roll call confirmation!

Who is still able to make it? I think we should meet at the Target parking lot on 5500 Grossmont Center Drive #1. We arrive at 0900 and leave at 0915. Exact spot will be determined soon. We will be heading South from there - I dont want anyone to have to backtrack, so if you are South of the mall, let me know and we can meet up somewhere along the way. The 'Spot' is about 35 min. from Target.

If you have room in your vehicle for another set of helping hands, let it be known. I think it would be really cool and fair that if you do carpool with someone with an open seat, you chip in for gas. I know I am willing to do so.

I'm in for sure. I live in Chula Vista so if you are planning on going east by the sbrg somewhere I think it would be better if I meet you somewhere east instead of driving north just to turn around and go back south. I have a civic and will take it as far as the road goes however depending on where I might need to just in the back of someone's truck at some point. Keep me informed. Please

Thanks for the response. Again, I dont want anyone backtracking so we will work something out for everyone South of Target.

I look forward to meeting you....and everyone else.

FYI - a 2WD truck will be adequate for this location. sdnative13 might need a lift from the rd. to the site. Speak up if you have room.

candrews0480
02-11-2013, 6:34 PM
Count me in for sure. I'll be coming down from Escondido. Anyone in north county (san marcos, escondido, vista) that wants a ride PM me. I could also pick someone up if they are off the 15 between the 52 and 78. If you can't chip in for gas I will more than happily except 9mm ammo for gas :)

Just to be clear, I have planned this as a clean/shoot/clean event. No one is obligated to stay for the shoot/clean portion.

Bonus points for offering shade. Prelim. weather indicates low 70's for the area.

musick
02-11-2013, 6:49 PM
Some recs. for those who are participating. Not mandatory - just want all to be comfortable:

Recommended Bare Minimum For Clean:
Water (if needed, I can bring 4 or 5 gal.)
Hat (wide brim to protect neck and face is a plus)
Sunscreen
Gloves (economy grade welders gloves are cheap and offer good protection. Ill have some latex gloves to give away but they only realistically offer protection from dirt)
Garbage bags/cardboard boxes/5 gal. plastic buckets (bags wont hold much weight - plan accordingly)
Shovels/Rakes (not everyone needs these, but too many is better than not enough)

Optional:
Snacks (if wanted...nothing that requires cooking)

Plan To Shoot:
Eyes and Ears
Safety mindset

I will however be out on Friday picking up brass and cleaning up at least one area I know of. Man I'm bummed. Once again sorry for having a brain fart. :banghead::banghead::banghead:

Yes, La Mesa is the spot. 5500 Grossmont Center Drive #1.

I still need to take a look on Google Earth to find the exact area in the parking lot we will all meet, but it will be by the outskirts away from the mall itself and near an entrance to the lots.

Ill keep updating this thread when I have more details.

Not sure of a way to recognize everyone, but I will have on a straw hat and be arriving in a gold suburban.

Did this. Asking Rmatt and Askrobert. Awaiting replies. Feel free to contact me by phone or text asap so that I can cancel with the person who doesn't get back to me before the other.

Either way, I'll wing it and jump in the back of a bed of something. I pay in cash and 9mm bullets.

Will be riding with another member from target. He may be leaving early (brief shooting), so once we get out there and someone wishes to stay longer and has room for me on a return run to target, i'd be glad to ride back with them. If not, I'll do a round trip with him.

Things will run smoothly once we all get there and can chat and organize in real time. I in no way want to inconvenience anyone in anyway. So I will do what works the best for the truck drivers.

I'll pay in cash or ammo. Prefer cash.

Thanks for all the quick responses and ride offers. You guys rock.

Thanks again guys!

Just fyi for everyone I reload, trade, barter used brass and although I am not asking anyone to pick it up for me if you finds spots with brass on the ground and no one else has use for it would be much appreciated if that info was passed onto me. Brass caliber does not matter. Thank you in advance and truly wish that the 16th was a Friday not Saturday so I could join you guys.

ImYourSalt
02-13-2013, 4:59 PM
this is gonna be fun. I've got gloves, etc for myself... Bunt don't really have any rakes or anything like that.

Probably just gonna shoot some 12ga, and .22.... .223 is too expensive these days. Here's my question:

Are there any rules as to what kind of targets we can shoot (Steel, Paper, Clay Pigeons, etc..) ?

thanks~!

candrews0480
02-13-2013, 5:37 PM
Most targets are ok on BLM land... with that in mind just remember what ever you shoot you have to clean up. Paper and steel are usually not an issue but clays are too messy to clean up. The rangers in the area ask we don't shoot clays out there because it's to painstaking to clean and most people just leave them. Even the "bio-degradable" clays take years and years to break down so you are left with bright orange pieces all over that don't go any until it's picked up.

This sums it up well. I hope its obvious, but no electronic waste, appliances or anything flammable and/or explosive. It may not be specifically forbidden, but it is simply irresponsible IMO.

To emphasize, what ever you shoot, pack it out.

I am bringing my 8 year old son out to shoot for the first time and have NO ammo. I have looked every place in a 15 mile radius of my house and can't find ANY! If there anyone can help me out please PM me and let me know. I will have cash in hand just let me know what you want for it. He is really excited to come out shooting with his Dad for the first time and I really don't want to disappoint him.

Thats something Im looking to promote with my cleans - diversity. Men and women, old and young, fathers and sons...

I cant offer the # of rds. you are looking for, but will bring enough to fill up a mag or 2. No charge. I can also bring my Beeman R1 and plenty of pellets if you want to start with that since I will be cutting out early. May not be the real thing, but it is an awesome piece.

Let me know.

I can spare 100 or so. PM me your name so I know who to ask for ;)

Should be easy enough to spot. He'll be the one with the REALLY excited 8 year old. :D

Looking for a little help here! Does anyone that is coming to the clean up have 100 or 200 rounds of .22lr they would be willing to sell me the day of the clean up? I am bringing my 8 year old son out to shoot for the first time and have NO ammo. I have looked every place in a 15 mile radius of my house and can't find ANY! If there anyone can help me out please PM me and let me know. I will have cash in hand just let me know what you want for it. He is really excited to come out shooting with his Dad for the first time and I really don't want to disappoint him.

Thanks in advance if anyone is able or willing to help!!!

This is really awesome. Wish i had some 22lr. by the wheelbarrow full to support. All i have is 9, 5.56, and 7.62. Really excited to have the yougsters join us. Really special. Someone get this guy some rounds!

Thank you everyone that offered to help!!! I was able to get some .22 ammo this morning. I got to Walmart at 7am and waited until 8am when they started selling ammo. See everyone tomorrow!

Sorry guys, I have to beg off. Been fighting a stomach ailment and I thought it would be OK, but I'm still under the weather. I hope to make the next one. Many thanks to Musick for organizing this!

Is there any room left in any of the vehicles departing from the meeting spot?

Thanks to all for your interest/commitment to the event. We will be rolling out to the location with more than 12 individuals and as a first time organizer, that is the max. I feel comfortable guiding. Pre/post cleanup pics will follow and stay tuned for another event in March.

Looks like you guys have a full house. I'll keep an eye out for the next one. I'm curious, what do you plan on doing with the trash you collect? Will folks simply take it home and toss it in the garbage on trash day?

Trash goes in trash cans - on the way home, at home or at work. Metals/glass goes in the recycling bins. If people want to sort/keep the brass, more power to 'em.

So, nobody met up? I live in Chula Vista so I went ahead to the blm spot where I thought people were headed. Nobody's here. I guess my friend and I will just do our own cleanup and head home.

I saw some calgunners out here and apparently the big group broke apart to go clean up & shoot in separate areas. We're all doing our own mini-cleanups.

Had a good clean/shoot/clean session today. Officer Funk paid us a visit and thanked us for doing our part. He drew me a map of a couple other places that need cleaning next. He left me his business card so we can let him know when/where we're going.

Real nice guy and a definite supporter of our efforts. He mentioned he's noticed that the areas are cleaner. Let's keep at it!

With the exception of a certain member's behavior, the meet and shoot was great. A lot of the areas that were in need of cleaning were currently being used by others, so we scouted ahead for other opportunities. A few members (not sure about the bulk) went on their own "mini" groups to cleanup a certain area and shoot. We, the truck I was in, were able to cleanup a good bit of the left over shotgun rounds and packings, plastic trash, and large pieces of skeet, as well as our own brass of course.

My ride and his buddy were really great people who I wish to have an opportunity to meet-up with again. I had a really great time.

Thanks Musick for organizing this. After a few rounds squeezed off and a couple bags full of trash, it was a wonderful experience.

Thanks again to all who came!

I'm glad to hear the clean up went well. Some people need to realize the logistics of getting a large group organized to meet and head to an unknown location can be taxing. Also phones tend to be picky out there so checking messages and email can be difficult. Musick and I are volunteering our time and best effort to keep our spots clean for all of us.

Thanks to everybody that has taken the time to help us out.

Ok guys, I'm missing exactly ONE piece of .40 brass. Which one of you took it? Hmmm? :p

Great day of shooting and even though we broke up into smaller groups, I think we got a lot accomplished. The group I was with managed to remove a full trash can of debris and the remains of an old (and very large) television. Kudos to the others who have done cleanups out there recently...I don't think I've ever seen that area so clean! Great meeting you all!!

Thanks to all who came out and participated today. With only the one issue aside, all things went pretty well.

In the future, with my events, I would like to ask that no one posts contact info on the open forum - PM's only. Also anyone interested in the clean should contact the me directly for meet spot info.

With that out of the way, myself, candrews0480 and son and randver and daughter did our mini clean. Our area was clean when we arrived and we left it the same way. All 5 participants were outstanding, safe individuals that I look forward to seeing at events in the future. I had a great time and enjoed the Mosins tremendously.

Sorry we all got split up but maybe that was for the best as we were able to do multiple mini cleans. Bear with me all - this was my first event and hope to do better in the future.

One more thing - white pickup guy (sorry forgot your name) you have a rake of mine and a large metal mesh strainer. Please PM me so we can arrange a transfer of the items.

Thanks again all!

Hey musick and everyone else it was good seeing everyone coming out. It is a nice area out there but it did seem quite full on the weekend.

Thanks for organizing and I'm up for future cleanups.

Between Musick and my clean ups, we should be able to keep enough calgunners going out there to keep the mess at bay. I have already taken 3 groups out , and they have gone great. Each time we clean at least 2 different spots if possible. I'm happy to hear that the spots are still clean when you guys got out there. That's a good sign. My groups usually go out during the week when it is not so busy out there.

I can usually get out there by 4pm during the week. More than enough time with the days getting longer.

Hi guys!

I am a bit late to the party on this one but would love to be involved in the future runs! I am recovering from C-spine fusion so cant do any heavy lifting for a while and no shooting till December, but I have a Nissan titan 2wd with a soft shell along with plenty of field tools and assorted gear that could be useful...

Look forward to meeting up for a bit of hard work and good times!
(and for after clean up debrief purposes I am also a homebrewer... :cheers2: )

just checking in. me and my cousin did our own mini cleanup two weeks ago when we shot. we literally packed 95% more than we brought in which was just brass on our end. we ended up picking up peoples clays, milk/water containers, soda cans, and other crap. Please let me know when the next one happens.
