Yeah, but I sold my boat years ago because it was just a hole in the water that swallowed my money.

Now, if there was a shooting range on the lake...

I can understand that. Hopefully, we will have enough of a presence to deter any irresponsible behavior.

I met Quinc there one day last November or so. It was a nice day, but it had rained heavily for several days prior. The range was completely flooded, with only the berms sticking up out of the water.

We both remarked it was the cleanest we had ever seen it.

So, you were running an "active shooting" scenario? Did you clear the house after it fell?

Sounds like fun.

Meaty, not Quinc, and I am the one with the brain half off. Lol. Steel vs 5.45 and 8x57. The steel lost badly.





Just woke up, crashed pretty hard right after I left. I timed it just perfect so only my co-worker got to see me at the grocery store looking like a moron who can't walk. Wonder if he thought I was hammered.

The camera guy (me) screwed this one, a little more to the right; might have gotten the flash. Check the flying shell casing.

Yall should join us next time. Stay tuned (shoots/meets forum) for the next event, or the next small shoot.

It is my special blend.
lol, no, it is just tobacco, i swear.
That mosin-off we had shooting the berm was pretty fun, we both need some work, I think.

I forgot names.
That was me with the ridiculous mustache.
In the photo with 4 of us, from left to right(from your perspective), it is Dylan, my friend from the air force, just had hip surgery, he was in a bit of pain and kind of shy.
John, I beleive, he said his sn was JDB or something along those lines, his initials.
Me
Edin, MightyEd, apparently he just signed up.

550 yards (aka ~500 meters... in EUROPE.... and Oroville)

The berms are in hundred meter increments. The actual ranges are just in front of the berms, where the targets should be...
100 meter, or what's left of it, is on both the left and right sides of the "road".
200 meter is on the left.
300 is on the right.
400 is on the left.
And, 500 is the butte in the middle and off to the right of it.

My friend, Edin, took these.

I believe these are jasonnorcal's firearms.


ChicoDan and Dutch_3, then the guy who sold me some ammo, correct?


The little folks got to have fun too.


ChicoDan and Wicked Pete.


Myself, warming up for the .50


Edin on the .50
