Asked my friend who rides up there to keep an eye on the gate for me. If anyone else makes the drive be sure to post to let us know if it reopens.

Level III fire restrictions were put in place on Aug. 8 throughout the forest which prohibits shooting until the end of the fire season.

In the past it's repoened once 2" (cumulative) of rain have fallen. I took my thirteen year old & his friends camping for a few days and intended to go shooting up there on 8/10 as well, I checked the Los Padres website to make sure it was open, the only closure I found on the site was Ojai so we went, CLOSED. I don't mind them closing it during fire season, I just wish they placed a notice more prominently located spot on their website. The next day while taking the boys to Red Rock I saw ranger Larry drive by and flagged him down. Apparently they had just closed it on Tuesday and said there was a notice on the website but they put it in a weird spot. Anyways, he's mentioned they have the seasonal fire fighters sitting on their hands doing not a whole lot so this might be a good time to get things cleaned up well. He thought maybe he could possibly get 20 extra hands. I can't spearhead organizing this but I can help pick up stuff and I will get the signs up once the date is set.

Count me in once the date is set. No mind for me if it's closed to shooting. We can always bring some bows and arrows !

There is a lot junk out there, but there was also a lot of shootable objects still there as well. Is the goal to wipe the place clean or do we usually leave shootable targets?

Clean up efforts rake up the loose trash & throw away the big stuff. It's pretty much impossible to try and leave targets.

Gotcha. I was unclear on how clean the cleanup should be since the next time the range opens people will undoubtedly drag out more junk to shoot and we start over again. I was guilty of bringing some melons to shoot but I have been told that biodegradable food targets should be eaten inside a week by the local flora and fauna?

I too would be willing to help with range cleanup when I'm available. Being new to the Santa Barbara/Goleta area and CG, I would like to get to know fellow shooters around here.

I did some research and it seems from the past few years, the range (isn't its official name the Arroyo Seco Bowl?) usually reopens about the end of November/beginning of December? If it does, we need to get this cleanup done before the range re-opens, correct?

I plan on shooting my Mosin, Garand and some more fun toys up there as soon as it opens again and would like to participate in the clean up effort.

Also, an article in the Santa Barbara Independent that suggests closure until mid November or the "end of fire season".

I am up for it as well, but there are only one or two posters in this thread that have the connections with Marborg to get the dumpsters out there we would need.

We are starting to get some rain, shouldn't be too long now...

I'm new to the forum, but want to help as much as I can. I've been shooting here for the last ten years. I would love to help get the range cleaned up in time for it to reopen. If we get a date set I will contact marborg and try to get the dumpsters set up. I know them pretty well, sure they will be willing to help us out.

Yup. It's right in that area. Not sure what set it off and not sure when it will be out. But you can follow the news about it here; http://www.kvta.com/news/

Well if it burns the range area there will be less trash to pick up and there will be no reason for it to be closed since there would no longer be a fire hazard.

Well, I clicked on the link to see if there was any further news on the fire and was confronted with this, which has resonance with me if not actual relevance to the issue at hand.



KVTA News Thursday October 18, 2012

"Oxnard police now say they shot and killed an innocent bystander Saturday night in La Colonia because they thought he was one of the two armed suspects they'd been chasing on foot. During the chaotic running gunbattle with the two suspects, 24-year-old Oxnard residents Jose Zepeda and Justin Villa, they apparently lost track of Villa who was found later wounded by gunfire hiding in a shed. Police say when they came up on Zepeda there was another young man standing nearby that turned out to be 21-year-old Alfonso Limon. Officers, thinking Limon was Villa, fired on both Zepeda and Limon, killing both of them. . . Police say 9 officers fired their guns during the entire incident. "

There more about this available by clicking the link.

Nice one Oxnard PD on shooting and killing an innocent bystander. If you have ever lived in Oxnard, you know that Oxnard PD doesn't exactly have a sterling reputation to begin with. Wonder if this will result in some long due comeuppance for them or if this will just be swept under the rug?

We have been getting some much needed rain, hopefully they will open the Glass Factory again soon.

Very sad indeed. Oxnard is truly a cow's testicle of a town - one side or another, its a bovine scrotum all around.

That being said...



DRIZZLE!!! lets hope for more! Might get into the Glass Factory before mid nov!

btw i heckled the Forest Service @ the Goleta Lemon Festival - basically if we get 1" of rain within 7 consecutive days, the range will be opened

Ah jeez, just what you would expect. According to the locals, we are all full auto shooting, drunken rednecks. The reality of it is that we could do a monthly cleanup and it would still look bad because of a few idiots just leave their junk, then a few more, etc. Unless there was a full time security person, it is going to look like various levels of what it is, but they also don't understand that at least the area is contained. If they close it, this same mess will be scattered all over the national forest, amazed that with all of the supposedly intelligent SBers up there that they don't realize this.

I agree, it is a disgrace that certain shooters are too lazy to pick up after themselves, but as usual, it is us law abiding citizens who pickup everything we shoot and more and bring it home to dump, that get blamed. Let me know when the cleanup is. I will bring a camera and we should post a nice little video on the Calguns site about our cleanup efforts, we could point some of the supposedly unbiased media in SB toward it to prove that we do our part, we can't help it if there are drunken idiots who don't.

Yeah I agree, I mean, being able to shoot up there is a privilege and based on being responsible. Anyone going up there to shoot should know better and to be mindful about picking anything up that they bring up there before they leave.

Seriously I went up there one time during the weekend, and I saw some guy blowing up fire extinguishers (about 3-4 of them) with his AK-74 and didn't even bother to clean up his mess. I should've probably called him out on it. Cause every time I go up there, my friends and I only bring paper targets and bio-degradable stuff, not fire-extinguishers, electronics, glass bottles, and other crap.
