Arrow NorCal C&R Shoot @ Oroville March 11th! *LOCATION CHANGE

Hey folks! Sorry I haven't gotten this thread up with the shoot date sooner, I've been busy with school and work that shooting has been the last thing on my mind. With that said:

The new shoot date is MARCH 11TH!


Due to weather variability and unknown access to the Oroville range, the location has been changed to a private venue (PM justin4fun if you are interested)

Where: Contact justin4fun if interested

When: Saturday, March 11th from 6:00-7:00AM to whenever we all leave. (Try to get there as early as possible, the range fills up pretty fast on Saturdays)

What: Primarily C&R's, but bring whatever you want! Modern, medieval, we love it all!


Since this is a free, and unmanaged shooting range, we have to bring some things that we might take for granted most places.

1. SHADE, it may be March but that's basically the end of spring to be honest, this isn't Seattle or Portland. So if you want maximum comfy shooting, bring shade

2. TABLES, for shooting from and to put the guns on. They have some concrete tables, but they get filled up pretty quick on a good day (of which this will be for sure).

3. COOLERS/ICE CHESTS, to keep your food and drinks cold through that mind cooking heat of March

4. WATER, the Oroville range doesn't have any. Don't forget to buy a couple of flats of water or fill a water cooler and bring cups! Hydration people, it's necessary if you want to be there and have fun too.

5. CHAIRS, try to bring them if possible. It makes shooting and just sitting there talking infinitely more comfortable.

6. TARGETS, they do not provide targets there besides what people left behind (which is arguably a lot), so I suggest that you bring your own paper targets and cardboard/wooden stands, or other "reactive" targets, AKA, watermelons, old milk jugs filled with water, you get it.

7. FOOD, and what's better than a POTLUCK! Bring whatever you want! Hotdogs and hamburgers are wonderful and easy to cook, all we need is someone to bring a small charcoal grill or something else to cook on. If nobody can bring that, I'll have a Coleman propane stove


8. THE SUN, it's March, so it won't be as bad as it *could* be, but it's still there, so bring a hat

I can't wait to see you all there! If you wanna come just comment below or PM me and I'll add you to the list! And if you want add what you'll be bringing below, that'd be great since we love to talk about it before we see it

2. Paulie Lugnuts +2

Yes we do, if only to find out who is bringing the party barge for a shooting platform, and the Zodiac to check targets. Flaoting targets would be cool though.
Dutch, Pete, and others, hope you all are high and dry, and made it through the chaos of the evac.

I believe the line of shotgun shells on the road indicates the high water mark which is about 1 foot higher than the current level.





These are just me playing with the panoramic function...



Water as far as you can see...

Dayum! I knew it was flooded, but not like that, going to be awhile before that dries up. Greg, thanks for the pics!
Okay Ian, postpone, or we just have it at Justin's?

That is even closer to me, so of course I am down for that location change.

Looks like that range will be out of commission for some time. Be interesting to see how flooded it will be after this next gullywasher blows through...

I'm willing to host a smaller group. Will need to know who and how many. It's quite muddy here but no standing water. I do have some steel targets out but always looking for more. No trash please unless you will clean it ALL up. Only 100 yards right now but it's still fun. It will be up to surplus to make the call as it's still his shoot.

If that's alright with you Justin, I'd love to take you up on the offer; I don't think the new Lake Oroville will be dry in time for the shoot.

And on the plus side, no brass hounds walking about stealing my 5.56 brass
