Default Oroville Clay Pits: Thursday morning, May 10. Join us!

Oroville Clay Pits. From the intersection of HWY. 70/Oro-Dam Blvd. (main drag), head west about 3 (?) miles, make a left at Larkin Rd. About another 3 miles to a small little road (left); Rabe Rd.

Sorry but the bikini clad supermodels (pick up brass, hang targets) have left. They said it was cruel and unusual punishment to make them wear bikinis in the rain.

Bring your own brass picker.



Berm? You see a 400 Mtr. Berm? Where?
How do you expect me to hit it, when I can't see it?

It's a drag having to work on weekdays. A wise man once told me that work is overrated.

Thursday, huh? Time?

A few CGN'ers TRY to get together at OCP, you know, brotherhood type thing.

One guy doesn't like weekends, the other guy has to work; another can't make it because he stubbed his toe....you know the drill.

We have fun, sometimes run out of tables. I like to sit, drink coffee, jabber jaw, take a shot; more jabber jaw. Guy with the spotting scope: Low, high, missed!

Get there early and get a table!!! Sun's starting to come up at 6:00? Argh, too early!!!!

I don't blame you for doing it midweek, the weekends are always packed. Last time I couldn't get a table and there were people sitting in between tables and it was too crowded.

I'll be shooting a Mosin Nagant, I have a Honda with Ham Radio Antennas on the trunk.

tileguy has one of those big (penis extension) trucks. Just look for an Arsenal on the tailgate.

We used to bring snacks, Dutch3 brought a stove and brewed coffee. Lately we've just been shooting; I bring my own thermos of coffee and a "tactical" pillow for my shoulder...

Ok, NO PROMISES. But I have been in communication with innumerable "brass ladies"...

This is what you're going to get: if you are a good shooter and "bang the gong" at 100 yds.

Can you say WINDY. Well only 2 of us members showed up + one non calguner I invited. It was really windy and we didn't stay too long. But still nice to get out to the range and make some noise.





I can see why people want to keep shooters off their land. There was a lot of trash left out there. I really can't blame them for not welcoming us.

This is what you are supposed to hit! 400 Mtr.; Come on "man-up"!


PRIZES, PRIZES and PRIZES. Bang the gong, win a cupie doll.
And...a date with the brass lady. Ah, Windy soothing...

I don't want to hear any "wahh school" excuses for the gun show on the 19th and 20th. We all know you're finished by then.

Hi guys. New member in Oroville and I'm definately interested in getting out there with you all in the future.

I'm hoping Berry Creek Guns can locate a Sig516 Patrol for me (fingers crossed) but if that doesn't pan out any leads would be appreciated.

Guess I figure mine will cost me a little over $1700 all said and done but it will be built the way I want. I did see a guy selling CalGuns lowers. I liked the design and almost bought one.
