Default Monthly WEGC C&R Shoot - February 12th

The monthly C&R shoot is coming up on February 12th

The range is private, but we usually have enough members to take new people as guests. If you are thinking of going and are not a member, please post here, we'll try to make sure we can get you signed in (cost for guests is $10 for the whole day)

As of today the range is open and the creek is passable for all cars, current information:

http://www.wegc.org/wordpress/

Directions to the range:

http://www.wegc.org/wordpress/?page_id=9


February will be Arisaka month for me, I'll bring a bunch in 6.5mm, 7.7mm and conversions to 8mm Mauser and 7.62x39. I'll also bring a couple of Mosin sniper rifles to sight in

We can bring back a fun bolt action competition? Mosin volley?

No, nothing new. It's my Russian SKS that I've had since the late 80s.

Now it gives me an excuse to clean the cosmo off my yugo m59..

...on another note I got an email from WEGC stating enrollment has reopened. So for those of you on a waiting list or have been waiting to sign up, perhaps this is a good time to make an attempt.
At least, until they close it again.

Cool! I'd love to bring my Arisaka out. Would you happen to have a set of go/no go gauges for a 7.7? I had a gunsmith do a chamber cast of mine, but I'm curious how it would do with the gauges.

Sounds like we'll have a nice showing of SKSs. I wonder if we can convince Bobby to make it out and bring out his SKS collection.

My first SKS was a like new YUGO. Unfortunately the importer [ century ] was too lazy to remove the grenade launcher adapter to make it CA compliant they just cut the barrel and installed a very crude muzzle brake on it complete with allen screws holding it on. I never got over that mickey mouse muzzle brake and finally sold the rifle.

I am planning on going and am a full member so can sign in someone. I might be able to bring an extra SKS for someone to shoot in the volley.

I still have some weird short range training ammo in 7.62x39. Used to be super cheap.
Only issue is it's SUPER corrosive :P

My SKSs and AKs cycle the stuff just fine- goes to show how over gassed those things really are

Default Very Windy Today

I live near the 15 and Summit. It is very windy and cold. Something to consider if you are commuting any distance. I'm going to renew my limited membership, otherwise I would pass.

So did the 35 minute drive and ran into WEGC River https://imgur.com/gallery/nYn2G

My humble crown Vic was not up to that.

It is the highest i have ever seen it, I am a old fool for crossing it in a Rav 4 but i made it . So did another 2WD Rav 4. I have more ground clearance than a standard car but only a little.
I had a great time,wish we could have had a plan B to park cars before the RIVER and come in together.

Forging the creek was interesting. I made it through in my RAV4 fine but I could see how easily a lower car could get stuck.

It was pretty windy today and the targets were wobbling around quite a bit. I was trying to sight in my new scope but the target had so much movement that it wasn't really happening. There must have been 5 or 6 inches of movment each time the gusts picked up. Still had fun with the SKS volley.

Even with the miserable windy conditions, it was a fun day for me. Got to shoot uncommon guns and meet cool people. Hope to make it next month as well.

If i did not enjoy shooting C&Rs once a month with my WEGC buddies so much i probably would sell everything but my 1911 for home defence.But i do enjoy it a lot. I feel sorry for shooters that never come out with us. Shooting at the local public ranges and putting up with all the craziness sucks.
