Let's get something going. Camping and pew pew, perhaps. Pew optional, although I know a nice place.
Been living here since June, and I have never interacted with the OPchan community in person. I'm tempted to join one of these shoots sometime. I'll be hasgunz again soon. However, meeting some of you guys would involve telling my girlfriend about OPchan...which, I'm not so sure about.
>not having a gf who knows about and posts anon on OPchan
Well, maybe if y'all would stop saying "niggers" all the fucking time.
At this point, it's part of OPchan's charm.
How northern NV are you talking BTDT, I'm only 3 hours from elko.
Opening the general "throw your days off in here" so we can all work something out and have at least a couple bros come along this time.
In addition to the EOSC range where we'd usually go, there's a spot in Kemptville that we can go shoot innawoods at with 550 yards of distance to target, but it would be non-restricted only. No pistols or AR-15s/SBR Vz-58s.
So yeah, when are you all available? I'm off every Friday to Sunday.
So yeah I'm going to EOSC for noonish.
my bike work hit a snag, I can't join you this time :\ Now I'm just hoping I'll have everything done in time for work tomorrow, because fuck public transport in this city.
You all missed a really good day of shooting.
>fuck public transport
Yep, I hope your bike is fixed too because the first thing I'd do in SHTF scenario is burn all forms of public transportation out of pure spite.
I'm not going to lie, the sketchiest part about the last month has been having to rely on public transport and an unreliable motorcycle. It used to be I felt safer with the bike because if SHTF, I have a highly mobile form of transportation. Being stuck wheel-less actually made me think about how fucked I'd be if SHTF at some point before my bike was 100%.
You might be an Operator when...
oh I would really like to go a shoot. I'm about two hours away from the last shoot in grenville. I would def be down if there is amother shoot.
Is there any interest in a Defcon meet next year? I had ought to have both an automobile and financing sufficient for a roadtrip if others are interested.
I'd be down for a big road trip meet up, but I personally have no interest in going to Defcon.
Dammit. I want to see what defcon is all about. Probably be like the village idiot there, but I gotsta know. And flying sucks such enormous cock now, that it is drive or bust.
Yeah, because being groped by a VIPR team at a train or bus terminal is so much better than being groped in the airport.
If other people wanna go and do Defcon, I'll shrug my shoulders and go. And have a good time, most likely. But for me, if I was gonna go on the road to do a big convention or event, Defcon probably wouldn't even ping the radar.
Defcon's...okay. I haven't been since Defcon 11. Hopefully, increasing popularity in the last decade will have made it a little less painful. Social awkwardness, ahoy. Rolling with a group it'd be pretty okay, but unless you're deep in the voodoo expect panels to either be A) Fluff you'll totally understand that may also be amusing, or B) Fact-heavy presentations that 9/10 of the room is going to get the general gist of, while the remaining 1/10th eat, live, and breathe the subject matter.
Driving wouldn't be bad. Long, but not bad. I rolled through in a beater with no AC and survived, though I looked a little funny with a sunburn gradient that went from boiled lobster red on the arm I kept propped up in the driver's side window to pasty-pale on my right side. Just lotsa water required.
I might be down, assuming I'm even remotely near the PNW by this time next year.
Ok ... Myself and SwissGuy are the two RI people on here, that I know of.
There is at least one venue that I am aware of that has open to the public access.
Tiverton Rod and Gun Club has both indoor 25yd handgun and trap.
Peace Dale Shooting Preserve has 5-stand and a clays course.
Make yourselves known, OPerators.
Pay no mind to the oxymoronic state motto.
Anyone up for a bar meet in Providence? I know the owner and bartenders at a really awesome joint in town, great food, cheap 'gansett, and good atmosphere.
Heyyy SwissGuy .... I myself am planning to attend this along with a few other local Amateur Radio OPerators
Looks like fun for $5
This could also be something MA&CT bros could possibly enjoy as well.
Judging by the vid, this could actually be winnable :)
>self sage for edit
I have not been able to find 9mm around for months, so likely gonna have to pass unless you have a few boxes of 9mm laying around you're willing to sell.
Stopped at D&L in Warwick the other day. They have 9mm.
The pricing is still high though.
$30/50 or so for WWB. Eww.
$249.99/420 Federal M855
Though I did get some CB shorts for $11/100.
OK. It was a great time at the pin shoot. Probably about 30-40 shooters. Relaxed and fun atmosphere. Great folks. The fudd crowd was nonexistent.
YES I rocked the hot pink muffs for the day. My son seems to have misplaced mine.
SwissGuy, if you get the chance .. Sept 8 is the next shoot. $5 entry.
If any fellow OPERATORS plan on coming to San Diego, or already live here, and want to go to Seaworld or their waterpark Aquatica, I work there and I'll hook you guys up with cheap tickets if you'd like. I might as well make use of some of the shitty benefits of this job
No catch, just a bro trying to help other bros.
My girlfriend wants to go though it is a drive out from los angeles
Shoot me an email if you want.
Oh man, I love both SeaWorld and San Diego (nn..no commie) and would love to go once the GI bill is a thing again and I have 3 day weekends every damned weekend.
If any other AZ operators are willing to ride out in a full on gay mini cooper meet me in TAZ and we'll go see some dolphins and shit.
Pax Regit Nos!
Anyone up for some urbex? I think it would be fun to meet up with some of you guys and see if we could get into the old bunker up on Kelly Butte.
I'm so down! Haven't done any urban exploring in too long.
I'd be down. Theres also supposed to be an abandoned npp somewhere in western washington worth checking out.
Anyone care to recommend a good shooting spot near seattle? A friends flying up from ca and wants to pew pew, but I dont wanna drive all the way to gravel pit. If anyone wants to tag along, feel free to hit me up, plan is Saturday (the 24th)
Also looking for eastside ammo shops, preferably with the cheap and the obscure european milsurp ammo.
I could be game, depending on date/time and whether or not I notice the updates to the thread before it's over.
Me me me. I wanna urban explore and I wanna shoot stuff!

You can't buy anything that's non-C&R because private sales are banned in California.
Yes you are correct.
If private sales are banned in cali, then what does the buy-back count as? Because the way I'm seeing it, it looks like people are selling guns for gift cards.
The government is buying the guns from them. It's okay when the government does something that normal people aren't allowed to do because being in the government magically makes you a better person than the unwashed masses.
So we discussed this a bit on IRC and I wanted to make a thread to try and feel this out. We have a lot of operators along the coast and great distances in between.
I think the central area would be NC or GA with GA being selected because so many operators are already in GA.
How many people would be willing to travel, for like a weekend or a long weekend for a bigger meetup? I don't really have any clue where we could do this in either location or how it'd work, are there areas to camp around that locals could point out, ranges, etc?
I'd be down to drive from CT if we can get something solid planned out. GA is the farthest though because that's like 13/14 hours, and that would have to be like long weekend or some shit.
I have to get back to work. So, DISCUSS! Really just want to see who would want to try and get something going and to see if it'd be worth it or not.
yeah it's a bit of a trip depending on where you are in the area. if you're stuck looking for a range, i think North Raleigh Guns is still planning on opening a facility somewhere on the northwest side of town although i don't have any real idea about the specifics.
>>2824 and other NCbros
it's looking more and more like i won't have enough free time shoot on my own, let alone to organize anything until after August. however, a local/semi-local shoot is definitely something i'd like to do and my shooting buddy is on board as well.
Cannot get my friend to pick up. He may have changed phones or some shit. Oh well.
Looking to hit up the pistol range for a few hours sometime between the 26th through 29th..I dont know of any reasonably priced outdoor ranges within 100 miles of Jacksonville, Fl.
Maybe Revived you could set up a fl/ga shoot?
don't really want to shoot when it's 100F outside.
hell, I hardly even shoot during the summer. I think i've been out like twice in the last 2 months.
I've been busy as hell lately and I'm not sure I could get approved for vacation in August. I'm still shooting for maybe the second or third week of August.
anyone in or around this general area?
This is a re-post, but I will be manning the suppressor shoot at the Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club this Saturday from 1400-1800 PST. If you're free, come and try out some of the goodies we make at work! PBEAR mkII related.
>The 3rd annual KRRC Silencer Shoot will be held on July 20, 2013 from 2pm to 6pm. Price is $5 for the public. KRRC members and people who bring a suppressed firearm to the event participate free. There will be suppressed firearms available for use by the public free of additional charge.
>The Kitsap rifle and Revolver Club is located at 4900 Seabeck Hwy NW Bremerton, WA 98312. The website is Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club Click on the address in the upper right corner of the homepage to see a Google Maps locater for the range. http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=4900%20Seabeck%20Hwy%20NW,%20Bremerto n,%20WA%2098312
>I will have a dozen suppressed firearms and about 3000 rounds of ammo available for public use. I am hoping that others will bring their suppressed firearms to the range and show them off. This is my best chance to see commercially manufactured firearms and compare them to my own.
A2H Actual's shop will have like 6-12 suppressed guns to shoot, including my short PBEAR, a couple .300 Blackouts, my .308 bolt gun, some .22 pistols, and our kickass integral M&P 15/22. We'll have limited supplies of ammo for you to shoot, donations appreciated.
>If you have a firearm with a threaded barrel that is suitable for use with a silencer, please bring it and if one of mine fits, you can use it. I have silencers that will fit on 22, 223 and 308 pistols or rifles with threaded muzzles
>Any dealers and manufacturers that want to display and/or demonstrate their products are invited to join us. Please call in advance to reserve a pistol bay for your use. Each bay has a table weather protection.
>In 2011 the first Silencer Shoot was a great success in my opinion. The event was free, many people showed up and we had 2 dealers show up to demonstrate their products. The second year in 2012 was much less successful as we had just reopened to shooting events after Kitsap County shut us down over noise and zoning complaints. The price in 2012 was $15 and many people thought we were still closed to shooting.

I know it, I wish I had more advanced notice myself. It was kind of a last second decision we made at the shop last week. I'll try to take some pictures and videos.
Well, fuck a duck, I think I might be able to make it. Anyone wanna carpool from Oly?
Nice meeting you, dude! Hope you had as much fun as I did.
Shit, I totally spaced it was Saturday, I coulda sworn it was the 28th, not the 20th. My memory sucks ass.
Oh well. Hope you guys had fun.
Yeah, that was a grand old time. Hopefully see you at another meet soon.
Anyone from Switzerland?
I usually shoot in Bellach at the Schiesskeller, almost every Tuesday at 20:00 o'clock.
If you want to have a meeting there or somewhere else in Switzerland, just post something in here!
Some of the rules:
>can't shoot high caliber rifles without noticing the guy that works there.
>30 francs for half and hour and 50 francs for one hour.
I'm Portuguese, I've been living in Switzerland for over 10 years and I can speak Swiss German without problems.
You're that dude from Reddit.
Yep, that's me.
Here's the website from that shooting club in Bellach in case anyone is wondering.
I'm going to be there next Tuesday at 20:00 maybe even a bit earlier.
