That range has been hosting regular competitions and events through the shutdown apparently without issue. I've done two long range matches there recently and had a good time. Looking like it'll be another great fall/winter NV season in OH and PA.

Man, I would love to do this. I'm in Ohio, I just did the TNVC armed pro class, but I'm going to be moving away next month...

Let me know if there's going to be any hot chocolate at the range??

Link Posted: 9/19/2020 8:31:27 AM EST
I'd potentially be interested if given enough time to make travel plans.  anyone have info on the PA group?  that would be a little closer to me haha - but would be cool to hang, learn and make new friends.

Couple different things in play for the PA crowd right now. There’ll be a SnipersHide meetup north of Pittsburgh at a 1000yd+ sorta range - more distance shooting, less running around tactically. Then the Pgh group will be kicking off monthly as well. Doing an intro lecture/demo on Oct 8 just north of town.

Here's the club that hosts the stuff close to Pgh on a monthly basis - https://www.rosedalesportsmen.org/night-shoot/
The guy from the club running things is good about posting updates on FB, so I'd recommend following the club there too.

If you're in the area, we have a Facebook group for night shoots that you can hop on if you reach out to me. The SnipersHide meetup is I believe about a month out and there'll likely be a fresh post put up about it soon. Here's the previous discussion that was happening over there - https://www.snipershide.com/shooting/threads/gauging-interest-east-coast-long-range-nv-thermal-meet-up.7021581/

I believe you can reach out to Crossgun directly to get on his email list for the OH events. Not trying to fill up his thread with our stuff, but it's just across the border so we overlap pretty often.

EDIT - correction, SH shoot looks like Nov 14 at this point. I got my dates mixed up... I love the fall, so much night shooting to be done!

I will bring a thermos just for you and only you.  

Anything else I can do for you sweetheart?  Maybe I could supply functioning gear that would be properly sighted in? How about that?

(this needs a bump)
Functioning gear? Please.. I like it when me $400+ RMR decides to jump off the slide. It spoke to me.. It said, "I want to be free.. FREE, I TELL, FREEEEEDOM!!"
... and as you can tell, I can't even send an emails... the struggle is real

What about s'mores by the camp fire? (Asking for a friend)

Darn, I heard the event was cancelled. I had all my gear laid out . Hopefully we can setup another time.

Those interested and qualified plan on Saturday, November 14th

Range issues out of my control forced the change in date but appears all has been resolved and we are GTG

Im not vetted yet, but thats the same day/night as the other nv shoot/meet up in Ohio.
(And the same weekend I drill )

Yeah sorry about that. Didn't see anything else on the calendar when we scheduled the long range night event for the 14th. Definitely a different setup than the more dynamic drills-focused times at the training group events. Both should be great though!

Even though I probably won't be able to make it. I really appreciate you setting that up. I was just talking to another member here about doing something similar in the southeast part of Ohio. Just needed to find a range and then reach out to industry to see if they'd sponsor/attend. I had the idea that an "intro to NV shoot" would be a great marketing and sales opportunity. Then i saw your post haha
Link Posted: 10/15/2020 6:44:07 AM EST
I’m stoked to finally move to the area and join in on these events. I’ve been vetted, but live in eastern PA for now, though if my cards fall how I want, I’ll be local this upcoming summer.
Link Posted: 10/15/2020 9:49:50 AM EST
Depends on how much you love/hate driving, but I'm 4 hours out and it's way worth it. I'll be catching some rack, locally, this time though - did the full monty (drive/shoot/drive) last time and it almost killed me. Hell, I may be doing it just to watch this time...but we'll see

WATCH?  What the hell does that mean?  

Bruh, your point man for the patrol cause I know you miss it.

I understand that some of you are caught between a rock and hard place with both events.  I bummed myself as I also wanted to attend what JW has planned however range openings are far and few especially at night.  As mentioned programs are different and great times will be had at either event.  Looks to be a great evening as of now for either location.

Bruh - A-U-R-O-R-A  P-R-O's I should be good, based on all my testing down to NL4, especially with a PERST-3 Illuminator - but you never know. Gotta pressure test to find limits - but I'm realistic, they may not work. Back here on the farm, I'd just use IR, but can't do that at an event, as it screws the other guys. You and the other Dave put out good info, so it will still be worth it to absorb knowledge bombs.

Oh good god, you just gave me a flash back of Ranger School - "Roster Number 212, you're now the PL for movement to and setting up, the Patrol Base, you have 10 minutes". Guesss I better dust off FM 7-8 and the Ranger Handbook

Yes my son, I must continue to be a bad financial influence on you.  In addition to mine I believe we will have 1-2 more.

PM @crossgun there is a vetting process
Link Posted: 11/1/2020 8:05:43 AM EST
November 14th!  Less than two weeks out for those interested and following and after the time change!

Great evening planned and looking forward to being on range with my night vision family.

STAY DARK

Link Posted: 11/2/2020 8:42:02 AM EST
Gang, I don't recall seeing this in the emails, if I missed it, mea culpa - but this costs crossgun money out of his pocket, so bring at least $50 cash so we can reimburse him.

It's on.. See everyone Saturday.
