Sup Opchan. Gonna be visiting Seattle this Memorial day weekend, and planning on being in Portland for a collector's show that Sunday.

RTF/Lei/Others in Portland area, are you guys available around Sunday 5/25 ish after tactikool and I finish perusing the Portland Arms Collector show, probably around the afternoon? Grab some drinks, catch up? It's been a while.

Portland and Seattle, quite possibly the only two places where your 'stache may not stand out as absurd. Just, you know, ironic.

I've got no plans for the time you're around, but it is extremely unlikely that I can scrum together the resources to kick it down to Portland at this time. If something local comes together, I might show up.

Unlikely. I am for all intents and purposes immobile outside of Seattle. Looking for a van to help fix that, and a job to further address the issue. Shit's just not been going real well for me on that front.

So, we're probably going to be shooting in the PDX area, I'm sure if other OpChanners want to join in they are welcome to! RTF knows the precise location of the range I'll leave it to him if he wants to post it or not.

I haven't been up there since, but the last time we were there, the roads kinda sucked. One thing we might do is just park at the camp site at the bottom of the hill, and drive in the gravel with our more capable vehicles only.

I think heading in the back way that goes under the power lines is definitely easier on vehicles.

Ok. Just got back. So both ways are decent actually. And also, the "new" way that we all took back on our return trip last time is downright civilized and also way faster. I shall be using this route for now on unless they fill it up with giant boulders for gravel again.

Just got back home in LA from a flight from SEA. It was great meeting up with everyone in PDX again and having a great time shooting! Definitely hit me up if any of you guys ever happen to be in Failifornistan, at least we can still have some guns.
>> No. 3453 ID: 18bb47
OK, guys. My contract here at Cessna in KS is up in 18 weeks, and I've been looking at moving back to the PNW, because my parents are in the Boise area. Only there's not a lot of A&P jobs there, so I'm basically drawing a 500-mile circle and looking in those areas.

Which brings up Portland. There's a fair number of jobs posted there, and once my contract is down to a few weeks, I would like to have a pretty firm idea of where to apply and where to avoid.

From a local's perspective, is the area decent for gun owners? Would working in PDX and living north of the border be the way to go? I know they won't recognize my WA out-of-state permit, is getting an OR CCW a pain in the ass?

What about long arms?

My email is where it goes, and/or reply in the thread. I'll also be applying for jobs up in WA, but I know the laws there are friendly enough that I can handle it.

Thanks in advance.

Forgot I wasn't on my home comp. This is more like it.
>> No. 3455 ID: 22504e

OR CCW is pretty easy. Only marginally more difficult than the WA one. You have to take a short class about where you can carry and shit like that (which can be online) and should only cost like, ~$30. Then you will receive a certificate which you bring with your ID, letter stating your "need" (could be pretty much anything, including living close, or working in OR), and finger skin over to a OR sheriff office of your choice after arranging with said sheriff's office for an appointment.

The area overall is very gun friendly, both WA and OR. Though OR is still more NFA friendly. WA you can have SBR's, AOW's, and suppressors. In OR, you can have any NFA.

As far as living in WA and working in OR, well, I currently do that. IMO, there's no real reason other than liking the particular neighborhood or whatnot. You still have to pay OR's income tax. And if you shop near your home, you will pay WA's sales tax. I mean, if you get a job at PDX, it may be easier to find a non-shit, non-super expensive, neighborhood on WA side close by than on OR side.

There's a couple of other airports in the area as well. Dunno if you work on the big jets or not. But Hillsboro airport is also a huge one, though mostly cargo instead of passenger like PDX is. There's also Troutdale airport a little to the east of PDX. It's much smaller though. Plus, a smattering of tiny airports lying around.
>> No. 3456 ID: fd3911
Looks like either state is goodago, then. Thanks, bro. I've seen jobs posted for both Hillsboro and PDX, I'm cool with whatever as long as it's not a megacorp union shop like an airline or Boeing.
>> No. 3457 ID: 19fec5

You could move to The Dalles. We have a little airport across the river that's undergoing a big expansion recently.

Please, man, PLEASE. I need to meet friendly folks, and it never hurts to get some info on the good and bad places in town right at the beginning.

Speaking of which, is the area between Hillsboro and (pic related) in SW Portland bike-friendly? I'm not sure if I can afford to repair my car AND move to Portland, and so I've been considering getting what I can for salvaging it and using that to buy a bicycle for the short-term. Also, it may not be economically wise to repair, depending on the costs involved, which I'm still trying to figure out.
>> No. 3554 ID: 485ab1
>>3553
Portland is pretty much the bike friendliest place ever. It is a good city for temporary carlessness.

See you soon bro.
>> No. 3555 ID: c1c101
>>3553
This city also has pretty damn good public transit. You're looking at about 16 miles to ride from the area indicated to the airport. And that means either taking on a pretty gnarly hill or adding distance circumventing it.

If you're gonna ride, your best bet would be to cut north and catch the MAX Blue Line. Or you can hop a bus and get to it that way. Either way you'll get off by the fairgrounds and be just a few hundred yards from work. If you add in the 12 bus, you'll have under a mile of walking involved. A monthly TriMet pass is $100, and you'll easily get your money's worth out of it versus daily fares.

Where you're gonna be living, with or without a bike, it's very realistic to do without a car for a while.
>> No. 3556 ID: 84c0d7
>>3553
That's a pretty long ass bike ride to Hillsboro airport. I would do what the others said and go with public transit if you can afford.

>>3554
>>3555
>>3556
I should have clarified that the pic related is the Orthodox church I'll be attending, not my future apartment. So it won't be a daily ride by any means, I was just hoping that it's not brutal if I live between the two somewhere.

But, thanks for the info! I should be goodago either way, and that's what I was hoping for.

Alright, gents, now that I'm in PDX and mostly settled, I am not going to waste a single weekend of not living in KS by staying indoors and playing vidya. Instead, I'm going hiking on Saturdays.

This is the first hike:

http://www.portlandhikersfieldguide.org/wiki/Wind_Mountain_Hike

I don't want to make wild guesses about how long it will take, but since it's partly a conditioning hike for BCEP through Mazamas and Mt. St. Helens this summer, I'm going to be carrying my ruck (and as always, my rifle and ammo) on the hike, and moving at training speed instead of lazy sight-seeing speed.

If you want to come, email me or text me, and we'll carpool out there. I plan on leaving PDX at 0900, and being back in PDX by 1600 so I can be showered and at church at 1700. Not that it should take anywhere near that long, of course, because it's only 2.5 miles.

Alrighty, so I was out running in the woods and found a decent place to shoot, so I'll be going there again next Sunday (22 March). It *might* be called the "North Fork Wolf Creek" road, but I left a trail, crossed a river on logs, and never saw a road sign on the logging road where I walked on it. Googling the trail I was on isn't working, it just comes up with a state forest. Stupid tablet...

I'll be going there directly after church, so meeting at St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church in Beaverton at 1300 makes the most sense. I don't think anyone will bother cars left there for a few hours.

This location may be viable for a run and gun, so expect me to do some tunning while there.

Email posted, use it if you want to come.

we managed to salvage some cardboard from a box lying around the gravel pit. luckily, somebody else had left a washington arms collectors publication for us to use as a center mass-sized target.

the steel plate target soren had brought along. it was fun trying to hit the thing at about 20 yards from a shitty rekt bbq tray, navigating through the gun smoke while trying to make out the target with your weapon light.

AAR:

Conditions were better than could have been asked for. Clear, cool, dead calm, moderate humidity. Star light was just bright enough to illuminate ground. Tried a few variations of the following drill: Run 20 yard up to about 4 yards of the target stands, engage with pistol, two shots each, run up to grill (about another 20 yards if my beer addled memory is to be trusted) engage steel at about twenty or thirty yards, shooting about 4 shots.

Ranges need to paced off in the daylight as course is set in the future, as fuck if we are gonna figure it out after dark.

It seems that standard rifle loads produce sufficient smoke as to obscure the target after but two or three rounds at night. This was a problem presenting with all three lighting solutions, and with each wolf gold, standard wolf, PMC XM193, Federal M855, and torn down and reassembled M855. Hypothesis given initial results is that rifle loads are simply too smokey to retain a sight picture in conditions while remaining stationary with longer strings of fire. Proposed solutions are relocating after double-taps or changing shooting stance.

Several variations of course tried, including standard, added alternation between pistol targets, added reload between pairs of rifle shots. Each proved both challenging and amusing for at least myself.

Shooting while moving course of fire proposed but opposed by majority.

Bounding fire course of fire proposed but tabled in the interest of further training.



Target stands worked admirably. Lighter weight PVC easier to reassemble on sight, but do not hold up to strikes as well. Standardization of pipe diameter will ease maintenance. New stand sustained several strikes to one of the uprights, resulting in subsequent failure in the part. More careful target placement, smaller backer, or several centered targets could all prevent future stand damage.

Clearest result is that rifle lights are necessary for night shooting. Head lamps improperly illuminate sights, impeding proper sight employment.

I should be down to hit this one, provided a few things are true. Namely that I'm not dying of plague in 9 days and I can ride up with Soren, as my current wheels are somewhat less than ideal for a road trip and I'll happily pitch in for gas. Also provided I won't have any personality clashes with anyone else who goes. I'm sure this allusion isn't lost on porncop at the least.

Got a call today about a contract gig fixing 737-800s near Everett. I've been unemployed for 8 weeks, so I'll take it.

Won't be official until next week, but it looks like I'll be headed that way soon.

Unless anyone knows of a spare bedroom on that end that can be rented out to a guy with a dog, I plan on sleeping in my truck.

I don't know how long the job will be, so it's not a "move all my stuff" move. I'll take the basics.

I plan on returning to PDX after the gig is over.

Unless something huge changes.

But in any case, looks like I'll be headed north on 8 June. We're meeting up somewhere in that AO that Friday, because we need to.

Unfortunately, it's a bit of a pain in the ass to to it by the book at a local range, because nobody's got a 25m line. Ideally I'd like to do more than just zero and stretch my legs a bit after, especially since I want to see how close the BDC on my new optic is.

Managed to hit up the Monroe pit that Soren posted. Not bad at all, aside from that fucking gate. Reasonably clean, too. If I'd been able to get my van back to the pit itself, I'd have been able to clean up the whole thing in less time than the round-trip walk took, and had a bunch of trash bags with me for just that purpose.

I wonder if there's a way to get a key for those gates, or at least request they be unlocked for a couple days at a time?

Yeah, that fucking gate helps keep the tards out. They did a bunch of work to close up the alternate paths in recently which I haven't seen ANY tards since then. The guy who showed me the place does good work keeping it clean, but thanks for lending a hand. He's been trying to get a key for a year or so so he can drive his truck up the path and pick up all the trash, but he keeps getting bounced around between agencies and logging companies and has since given up iirc. You're free to try your luck though, I'd love to be able to get up there without having to do the hike (though i guess it builds character)

Sunday evening, 9 August. Meetup at the Monroe walmart at 1530, travel to the pit from there.

Also, on a totally (un)related note, I have a buddy that's selling a car. This is relevant because it doesn't go in reverse, overheats on the highway, and is basically a rolling piece of shit. He's kinda unlikely to get an offer on craigslist, and will probably have to scrap it.

I kinda want to buy it for scrap prices, trailer it out to a shooting location, shoot the hell out of it, and then drop it off at a scrapyard.

Uhh, so during the drive back from PDX, where Tacticool and I picked up my gun safe, my surfboard, and his new M1A, the rear diff on my truck blew out the oil seal, followed shortly by the everything else.

I spent all day yesterday getting it rolling, it can do that, but it's entirely non-driveable. The T-case doesn't work (might be a simple linkage issue), and with the rear driveshaft gone, there's a lovely new vibration that I can't drive with. Until I can replace the rear axle housing and (almost certainly) the driveshaft and/or U-joints, my truck is down.

Now, there are quite a few similar rigs around town in the various junkyards, and I've seen a couple parts rigs on craigslist, but that's not my immediate problem. The right now problem is that I have to get to work, otherwise I've no money for anything, parts or otherwise.

Is there anyone here that has a spare car I can borrow for the short-term?

i used zip ties to secure the tape switch i got with my mini-scount to the top of my pic rail. they seemed to hold fine after 100 continuous rounds despite being mounted directly on top of the gas block after.

Anyone else feel like spending the night out at the range pit? I don't know (or particularly care) what the weather's going to be like, and I feel like throwing up a shelter half and just sleeping out there, especially given that we'll probably be out there until midnight anyways.

My concern with the plan is how profoundly unclean others are when they use the pit. My proposal is either finding a camp a little ways off or crash at my place. I have done a little scouting and found a few little roads near there that would work.

If you have both a couple of flashlights and some sort of tape, you have all of the shit you need. The tacticool shit is much more slick and pretty, but you can do what needs doing with just those. Hell, we didn't even give Soren shit (or at least, not much) for his afro-engineered light mount. And besides, we can let you try some different light set ups, see what might work for you. Just bring some range fodder.
>> No. 3881 ID: f2c4ed

If it works, it ain't stupid. That fuckin' flashlight is still paracorded to my rifle, too.

I have to step out of the night shoot, I don't have enough money to buy bullets in sufficient quantities to make for a worthwhile range trip.

AAR: Shoot was a success. Most attendees were not opchanners. Safety was a major concern, but seemed to be good overall. Two issues that arose were the difficulty of head counts prior to courses of fire and positive identification of admitted shooters. A proposed solution was looping a light into shooter's kits.

Most illumitation solutions seemed adequate. It seems that the shooters without illumitation on their secondaries had to improvise, some using their primary pointed by their support hand at the target.

I am considering adding a light to my kit to make ninja belt light and pistol use more similar to that with my edc shit. Some manner of dump pouch might also be nice, as having a place for empties will help, though dropping them into my jacket proved sufficient.

>A proposed solution was looping a light into shooter's kits.
some of the shooters had glow sticks looped around their tacticool gear, or just shoved between their earmuffs and skulls. i always make it a point to bring a few of those every time we shoot at night to loop around my war belt.

> Some manner of dump pouch might also be nice, as having a place for empties will help, though dropping them into my jacket proved sufficient.
i ended up picking up an old SAW pouch yesterday when i was casing out milsurp stores with tactikool, which i'll probably use for shotshells if im not using it as a dump pouch. also, huff puts hi-vis tape on some of his mags for easy identification when dropped on the ground.

Getting into the busy time of year so I don't have too many weekends open. My schedules pretty restrictive, so if it has to happen on a weekend I can't make it I completely understand.

I can get either of these weekends off (including Fri) just need at least 2-3 weeks advance notice so my boss can make the schedule work.

October:
10/11
November:
28/29

Why not try to make this a monthly thing? That way folks can sometimes make it, and sometimes they won't get to, but it's not going to be the only one we do that season.

October 16-18 works for me, so would the week after that. I'm probably going to be arms-deep in my truck the 10th, unless things go *very* well this coming weekend.

But let's also go for Nov 27-29 as well, because damnit, camping's fun, and we should do it more often.

Gonna have to vote for late Nov too. At this point it's questionable whether or not I'll have a day off before December.

I've really got to get my shit together. Seems like I've missed every meet or shoot due to work or some other bullshit.

I'll be going camping up inna hills on the night of 27 November. That's Black Friday, because I'm not going to go shopping, and don't really even want to be out around town It's going to be about 2 miles to the campsite from the trailhead, but it's a mean two miles. This will be a "IT'S HAPPENING" camping trip, meaning bring your backpack and your weapons.

So, in view of a burgeoning need to not be inside, I've decided that the first FRIDAY of every month will be my camping night. Locations will be determined on a more or less unplanned basis, and may involve rain, snow, and/or misery.

ALL camping trips will involve carrying the full SHTF load, just because reasons.

Ya'll have my email, hell, most of you have my phone number, so if you want in, just lemme know.

And there's always next month.

But tonight, I'll be at the Monroe pit. Saturday's not going to keep working, though.

We need to find a range where I can drive this thing all the way to the backstop.

I'd like to keep it functional for as long as possible, so we can do tactical vehicle shit with it, but I also want to take video (good video!) of through-the-glass shots at targets inside and out to get an idea of how that affects things. Engine/drive train are "please don't shoot", the rest is goodago.

It cost me the equivalent of a single shift of OT, and renting a car hauler will be about $50 + fees to bring it out for a day of shooting. I'll drop by DMV tomorrow, but I won't be getting plates or insurance for it because there's really no point for a car that won't be roadworthy at all, and barely is now.

To me, this is totally worth it for the added benefit of being able to engage a target through a windshield, because I for one don't really want to do tactical drills in my daily driver just in case I accidentally a round into the dashboard.
