Default San Diego BLM Summer Cleanup

I will be planning a clean up out at some San Diego area BLM in the next week or two. the date is not set yet , but I will try to get a solid date as soon as I figure out all the details.
It will either be monday July 8th, and wednesday july 24th.

Wednesday July 24th:
We will be meeting up around 6:00AM at a neutral location nearby in a shopping center so we can get last minute food, drinks, gas, supplies, etc...

It is really hot, so we will only be out at the location for around 2-3 hours, so if you only want to come out for a little bit, that is fine. This is mainly an opportunity for some fellow shooters to come out and meet some new friends and help to keep our BLM clean. I will be going out regardless of how many come out there with me, but ideally a group of 5-10 would make the clean up go real fast and not be too crowded.

No posting of the final location or personal info in the open forum, all important info will be through PM or email.
We will clean first, then shoot.
No exploding targets, or steel ammo on steel targets because it is so dry out there.

I will post updates on this thread. Hope to see some new faces out there!

There are multiple locations. Depending on which one needs to be cleaned the most and number of volunteers, will dictate which one we go to.

I won't be able to make it on either date, but would be more than happy to volunteer for another clean up opportunity.

Myself and SDFire went out and pulled in what we could. Not bad for two guys. Overall the site was pretty clean e Celt for the shotty wadding and hulls.

Someone was working on rack and tap drills. Found a bunch of 45 blanks.

Tested a new (for me) way of hanging my steel targets with a pair of shepherds hook plant hangers. Worked great with a Saiga at 75 yds.

Hopefully there's another, maybe during the weekend, or, if it hits one of my off-Friday's I'll be there! Can't during the week otherwise!

Thanks for the hard work keeping it clean! One day, I'll get out to one with the fiance to shoot! (And clean my mess, of course)

Thank you

Do it was actually not too bad out there. We picked up a few bags of trash, and got about an hour of shooting in before it started getting hot out there . When we go on the 24th we will head out about an hour earlier to avoid the heat.
It seems like our efforts are keeping the various BLM spots clean. Hopefully some more people can come out next time and enjoy the great work we are doing out there.

Oops, my bad. I superimposed the 22nd for the 24th. Can't make it on the 24th. I can make it if it were the 22nd.

I was wondering if anyone had a wagon that we could use ? Like one of those radio flyer type with the wood panels and off road wheels.

I have a radio flyer with standard wheels, 2 of which are rusted immobile which you basically have to drag through the dirt.

I would like to to try to make it, but am unsure if I can yet.

Just remembered that the 24th is the first day of school for our district so I guess I'm out for this time around. Hoping to make it to the next one.

So it seems like most of the volunteers backed out. I only have around 2 others that said they could make it. So I will be at the meeting spot around 6:30, and will probably only clean and shoot for 1-2 hours if there is only a couple of us . The area we go to is accessible by normal car, and we will hike around 300 yards to the spot. If any others want to go, send me a pm with contact info, and I will try to get back to you before we head out tomorrow.

Well we made it out to te spot and it was pretty clean so we did a little cleaning and then some shooting. We had a sheriff drop by as we were packing up and hassle us a little bit though. Was asking if anyone had any "hi-cap" magazines , and then proceeded to tell us that it was a felony to be in possession of one. But other than that, he just asked a few questions , and names etc... Then told us to be careful when any helicopters were overhead, and then left after about ten minutes. So other than the FUD from the sheriff about the magazines, we had a good time .

So for those of you that are heading out there, be wary of the sherriff's department guys. They seem to be looking to hassle shooters. But be respectful and just explain that you are out there to clean and enjoy the blm .

Sorry I missed the 24th morning. Ended up drinking with an old buddy I have not seen in a while. Sorry to hear about the sheriffs coming by and hassling you. That is never fun.

Yeah, he was hassling us about "hi capacity" magazines, and then asked for everybody's info. So be aware that the sherriff's are looking to start hassling people about laws that haven't even passed yet.

Based on the description, I think I know the spot. Sounds like a tough situation sdfire and company encountered.

Two of us had an entirely different (i.e. positive) interaction with government employees on BLM last Saturday. It sucks not all are knowledgeable on the laws but not all GE are out to hassle us.
