I'm always down to volunteer, just need to know where I'm needed. Don't be shy, let me know what/where.
Also, I have some serious speakers for the movie if needed however I don't have an amp to push them. The MTX are a pair of decent dj monitors and I have a set of professional movie theater speakers if needed

Both of these require someone to collect, categorize, transport and handle the items on site.
One of the primary problems we've had over the years with any event is getting folks to volunteer to handle or be in charge of the event itself as well as tear down and cleanup.
Everyone wants to attend the event and all think its a good idea but when it comes time to actually put forth a few hours of Volunteer work few step forward. What happens then is we work the same old Volunteers to death and they fade away, beat up and tired.

That is what I've been seeing over the years, 263,000+ members and if you look back over the years you'll see the same Volunteers over and over stepping up to take charge and then they fade away.

Its what I've witnessed from my little corner of the Central Valley.
This SSZS I think is the longest lasting event we have on CGN and it is entirely due to mrlonewolf's and a few others personal efforts.

Because I'm lazy and I don't know. Can anyone tell me is this going down in the north, central or Socal? I know the location is a secret but a general region would suffice.

So Cal...

In the Calico Mtns, north of Barstow... It's one of the most perfect areas for shooting I've visited. You can really stretch out the distance here to test yourself and gear!

Went out to the site this past weekend. The weather was beautiful. The road in wasn't to bad. Most of all of the sand has been compacted. The two danger spots on the road hadn't gotten any better. Truthfully the two spots were in about the same condition as last main shoot.
Some trash in the area. I was able to pack out a lot with the group I had. A lot of shotgun hulls on the ground. Was probably the most disappointing.
The main ramp going up to the range is completely filled with rock. about 75 yards to the right there is another ramp I was able to use and even pull a 12' cargo trailer behind me up it. I believe its doable with a small car.

Excellent recon work, but is there any chance you could make the font for the photo labels a little smaller? They're too easy to read

I'm a man of my word and for that I make no apologies.

Under my watch, Ladies, minors and first time shooters will always have a blast.

So, uh, then if I identify as a "lady" can I shoot your ammo (no pun intended)?

And, FYI - I'm bringing a drone, some community targets, and hopefully some community firewood.

I have no idea, impossible to predict my travel schedule. A couple weeks ago I got sent to Dubai with 12 hours notice. So I sort of just need to pack clothes the night before SSZS, and hope that I'm taking them to so-cal and not europe the next morning.

This survived the firing squad for use with Mosin Madness last zombie shoot. My target stand didn't do as well. No plastic allowed. The head of the lastest design is formed from rabbit fencing and masking tape.

Update.

We are just shy of the 30 day mark.

The initial super secret posts will be updated shortly ( I do appreciate your communications guys but due to event's rispect I'll not disclose GPS before the event), this is part of the concept and anticipation/fun to the biggest free event in this part of our country.

A spread sheet will be created for fellow volunteers / donors who would kindly are offering participation.

Once again, thus is your family event and any help is highly appreciated.

New communication equipment has arrived and members of our beloved family are assisting me in order to bring the stuff up to par.

More top notch LED lighting towers have arrived as well, I think I'm going to have to do douse the contraptions so the C&Rs can light up the night again.

I'm still need quite a few items to make our event happened and I hope you will open your heart and participate with donations/voluntary work.





Lonewolf.

Really the inverse, bulletproof glass is usually polycarbonate, but any polycarbonate thinner than about an inch is not very bulletproof

We were out at the spot this weekend. The road in is passable, although we will see if the rain does any more damage to the usual problem areas. There are two ramps, one at the flat and one on the left end of the line that will provide access for cars and trucks.

The site is very green with new brush and wildflowers everywhere. Campsites all look good and most of the fire pits are still intact.

Guys, we're going to have some cleanup to do at the firing line. There's a lot of 22 brass and aluminum casings of various calibers at the line. I've got two magnetic pickups that I'm bringing with me that I got at Harbor Freight. They were $10. If we could make a serious effort before and after the shoot to pick up the casings around us, we could leave the spot cleaner than before our event.

Thank you sir!.

Please keep us updated about road conditions if you would, we are expecting more rain this upcoming weekend and it'll be nice to know what our fellow brothers hauling RVs need to do.

This was taken yesterday.

Just stay on your left and your should be fine.




Also, I'd climbed to the long range target and gave it some much needed TLC.






Yup, it's still there, now you will be able to see it and stretch the scope to the max...

* Edit.... I'd found the location of our other longe range target but unfortunately it is no longer there, only the wood reinforcements remains.

I can't believe the local federation of desert steel scavengers made it all the way up there to haul that 1/2", 24" diam steel gong.

More power to them I guess....

Nope, The target is always there and periodically maintained for the pilgrims.

From the south side of the line you should set your scope at 700 + yds.

Remember, you will always be shooting uphill ( so the 700 + yds on the flat should be compensated for elevation....) on top of that, wind is a real factor on top of that hill.

Enjoy!.

Addendum.

One important thing about the remaining long range target.

That target is a 12"× 24" steel plate.

Big deal....... so what's so special about a 12x 24" target?.

Answer.

Center mass at 700+ uphill yds!.




Open invitation to all of our family members to join us at the long range shooting station.
