I will be attending on the 28th. Anyone else here who will be going?
Anyone? I'll post pics here or in /m/, or even /t/ if I have a lot to say when I get back.
I'm not from NY or yankee land at all for that matter but, I must say that's a really good idea. I'm not sure if this sort of thing has ever been suggested on here before but hopefully this will catch on. Especially now, with the limited availability of ammo it will still give operators a reason to /meet/ and still get something done.
Good turnout at the rally. I'm posting pics in /m/ for those who are interested:
Anyone going to the battleroad zombie apocalypse run and shoot biathlon this weekend, up the road from the lead barron's place?
who's going to be in Nashville tomorrow? probably late but whatever.
/k/ommando/OPChan Meet & Camp out
I am proposing a meet and camp out at a time to be determined. This post is strictly to gauge interest. I will re-post with further details. There are 2 people interested at the current time.
Details: Will be held on a private ranch in Starr County of Texas. This event must take place BEFORE deer season, so that we don't disturb adjacent land owners. The nearest town is about an hour or so away so supplies should be thought out ahead of time. There will be no running water or bathrooms available.
Supplies: Basic camping supplies and first aid. Bring appropriate clothing for season/environment. Anyone not familiar with the RVG, I would advise you not wear shorts or sleeveless. I do recommend boots (for snakes).
Weapons/Ammo: Nothing illegal. No illegal explosives. Tannerite or similar is okay. NFA weapons are allowed (bring paperwork in case of law enforcement obviously).
Conditions: You must provide me with personal information before you are allowed on my property(a part of a contract). No alcohol while handling firearms, ever. Nothing illegal. Do not break anything. Don't be a cunt.
*If you break any of these you will be asked to leave.
There's plenty of room to shoot and go exploring. Hog hunting is okay, target practice is okay. All of this will be determined later.
Further details: To add to conditions: Firearms safety rules must be followed at all times.
Please contact me @ email@example.com with what you plan on/who you plan on bringing, or etc if interested.
Cameron County k/ommrad here. Need more info. I have a possible 4 people in Cameron County who MAY be interested as one has land in the Roma area. I'm also buds with Denny Church and Kevin Ramsey in Hidalgo county (in case you are familar with them. Kevin has organized Appleseed shoots in the past)
By the way I will contact you by email if they are interested. It is just shooting ammo these days with the panic is just... well fuck.
Good morning everyone. Me and a small group in northern Illinois from the other Chan are planning a few shoots over the next few months and we would like to extend our invitation to our Illinois Opchan friends.
The first shoot is most likely going to be in roughly 2ish weeks at On Target in Crystal Lake.
The second shoot will be sometime in early January, location still to be talked about.
Then in the semi near future we have a person with private land in Macon county down state that is going to host us. That shoot will most likely be in spring before the farmers plant. For some of us this shoot will also almost certainly include camping innawoods on the adjoining private property. Our hosts only require that you be at a minimum of 18 years old and there may be a Hold Harmless agreement to cover the land owners' asses. This shoot is still in the somewhat early stages of planning.
I am also working on a longer term plan to do a group shoot at the Aurora Sportsmans Club. This is still in the VERY early stages. ASC is a private club with the only 1000 yard range in Illinois that I know of as well as multiple handgun and rifle ranges, an indoor handgun range, trap, and archery ranges. This one will almost certainly cost money as we would need to rent the facilities for the day. Depending on the number of people I am going to see if a group buy on bulk ammo will be possible from one of the local gunshops as well as possibly getting a company or 2 to donate prizes (possibly raffle or competition) Like I said, this is still in the VERY early stages and most likely wont occur until fall of 2013
My email is included in this message. We also have TinyChats every few days to get to know each other a bit better and organize out ideas.
I am in the Chicago area as well and tried to set up a shoot a few years back that sputtered and died because almost nobody responded. I would love to get in on this. How do we get in contact for more information?
Count me in!
Just click OPERATOR for my email. We have a second guy managing the first few shoots. I am mostly concentrating on the ASC shoot, though they are being slow at getting back to me so far.
It would be great to have 2 more people :) I think you 2 make 10 so far. I would really like 20-30 by the time we make it to summer. I may also set up my own northern Illinois "club" website, but that is also really going to depend on how many people we get.
of course Illinois shooters come together and want to meet several years after I sign up and ship out. It figures... if I'm ever around I'm down I guess
So, me and my buddy are going to be scouting the Northwest in the hopes we can move up there before California's registration bullshit kicks in. It looks like we'll be crashing with RTF, and I figured theres a bunch of OPERATORS up there, so we might as well see a few of you guys then. We are planning this around Dec 16-Dec 22, so anyone wanna grab dinner and drinks while we're in town and debate AR vs AK and 9mm vs 45?
I'm thinking Portland Thursday Dec 20 would probably be best for us, but thats subject to change.
Oh damn, I thought I just dreamed the second time. :o
Alright, we'll be back in Portland tomorrow if you guys can make it. Going to text the guys who showed up last time when we get into town. Can everyone do about the same time (6ish or 7ish)?
Yeah I'll be there. Meet at Randall's place again?
Hey guys, looks like we'll be meeting at Rogues near PSU at 5:30 PM tonight. Any OPERATORS who wish to join us tonight is more than welcome to.
Another good meet guys. Hope to be able to meet with you if I'm ever in the Portland area again!
So are any of you faggots in the Havelock NC area?
Most of my buddies are deployed. My nearest frat bro is in VA Beach. My roommate hates the corps and is a communist that I can only hang out with in small doses before wanting to kill. And I see enough of the guys in my shop at work.
Very few NC Operaters are anywhere near each other.
You ever wanna hang let me know,im over on mainside base just past the hobby shop man.
Email up for cntact. Old throwaway one JIC
So anyone around this neck of the woods apart from me and Sandy?
I'm on the NW side near BW8 and 290. Perhaps next weekend?
Sounds good. Hit me up via email and we can trade info.
Also we don't have to go all the way down to thearmsroom unless you just wanna ride. There are ranges really close to both of us. The only real motivator for me to head down to arms room would be to light off the 930 really since I have not shot it yet.
I might go check these guys out this weekend and see about potential crazy ass range rules around ammo.
And you say Shilo is ok?
I've stopped by Sportsman's outlet, but not shot there yet.
I shoot at Shiloh every once in awhile, it's a decent range.
Pistol cartridges only, brass cased ammo only, no magnum or unjacketed rounds. I don't believe they allow shotties. You can bring your own ammo. Fee is $16 after tax. They're open Saturday and Sunday.
So this run and gun is happening in Buckholts, TX one weekend in Feb( The same town where we had the last really bit regional campout). Since it's Feb- it will be coat/ hoodie weather. I'm still going to rock my MarPat kilt though.
I've signed up: is anyone else going? I was going to only hit danderdude on his cell phone, but this would be good for everyone to know about. It's not as long, or miserable as the Pecos run and gun( I posted an AAR in /fit/; but it will have three miles of obstacles to traverse and seven stages spread out over three miles. 150 rounds rifle 175 rounds pistol minimum. Gongs at unknown ranges for 50 to 400 meters.
Be there, or be square.
Aww shit, they're running it at Bud Adams Ranch.
The guy who runs the ranch and his wife are pretty good family friends, and I've worked a pecan harvest with them. I might have to sneak in.
First off, as soon as I clear my second console at the 911 center my days off are going to change, probably to something shitty like Tue/Wed. I also have a total of 2 days vacation time for the next year that is being saved for when I really need it. Chances are no dice on a shoot yet.
A non-operator friend and I are in the works for planning a roadtrip to see a couple of our friends abroad. In the picture it shows close to our launching point, and our two destinations. Our plan is to leave failinois southward, and then head eastbound(and down) to Jacksonville, NC to see a friend at camp LeJune. From there we will go to Albandy GA to see another friend who recently moved down there. This will take place durning my friends winter break from college. We may also hit up southern Mississippi, there's a fat girl who wants to fuck. I don't really think I want to, so that's kind of up in the air.
Here's where you guys come in.
1.) What are major things we should hit up on our way? Help us decide which route to take and what stops we should make along our journey.
2.) If anyone who is either on or near our path of travel and might want to meet up and chill, let yourself be known so we can plan it in.
I'll post more on this when I either get more information, or I remember things that I forgot to say here.
I live up in Indy, if you were planning on taking 70 to go east.
Well upon second look I see that if you drive on those little yellow lines south to Georgia then you come within like 30 minutes of my house, I'm in the south east corner of TN
Your route is probably going to take you directly around my fair Raleigh, NC. I've done a woefully bad job of entertaining out of town strangers in the past.
As of now, I think we'd head eat on 70 to Indy to meet up with SomewhatAgedAndArmed, then we'd probably turn south to meet up with PJ, and then, further south to see JonNathe. We'd head east from there to Jacksonville, and may pass though Raleigh.
Then we'd roll south to Georgia. Next time I see my friend I'll try to get an exact depature date planned out.
I like where this is going.
LETS DO THIS ALREADY!!!
so i guess we need to pick a date?
Hey guys post what weekends y'all are free for the next 2 months. I'm going to get a tentative date setup. Thinking of a desert shoot if that's all right with you guys.
This upcoming weekend, though I have pitifully little ammo and I dropped 2 of my supposedly torture proof circle 10 mags so now they're broken and I'm down to 3 mags.
I can't find all off the loose cartridges either...
bump for ideas.
I'll be in Vegas with my brother in about 2 weeks, going to be stopping by TGDBM's place of bidniss, I would be quite interested in meeting any Operators in the area.
