So we talk about it a lot, and the Colorado site does it pretty regularly. But we haven't done an "official" AR15.COM Colorado shoot before. So how about it?

Let us know if you are intersted.

Let us know if you have a preferred spot to have the thing.

Let us know what dates you can make it. I'm thinking August or September. That will give us time to plan it, and get 'er done before the snow flies. And if it works out, we could and or should do such a thing on a regular basis. At least once a year.

Ideas? Suggestions? Now's the time.

I'd like to attend!

Pawnee sounds interesting, I haven't been there yet but I have been to both of the COarfcom locations for a handfull of shoots.

Mid to late September (if not early October) should be good for me. My wife should have a new job by then and stuff.

I I think an ARFCOM Colorado shoot would be great. If its in September could you try and make sure it doesn't conflict with the Tactical Resonse Carbine Course?
Link Posted: 7/8/2005 11:01:00 PM EDT
I'd be in but I either need lots of notice or we can't do it on a Saturday. I have Sun through Tues off.

If it's in Sept and we get a firm date i can probably get the day off.

Goes without saying. I'd never fight for attendance with Yeager. (Not that I could.)

I think we petered out over here.

I know we had wanted to get active and have you guys come over. And attend one of your shoots some time. But..... <shrug>

I have Tue, Wed, Thur with every other Fri off if anyone else with a F**ked up schedule want's to plan a shoot. Grasslands is good.

Pawnee is nearly Wyoming!

How about....somewhere in the middle, like Woodland Park


I know, I didn't make the last few. The dog ate my homework...

I like to see a shoot happen , I'd prefer northish Pawnee is a good place to shoot . But I could travel some , whatever . RL

If in Sept., I'm in. Post a date and location, I'd love to meet the CO crew (and have a fun shoot, too!)
Link Posted: 7/13/2005 11:01:19 AM EDT
I'm in this would be great just let me know when
Link Posted: 7/14/2005 12:12:01 PM EDT
If you do it before Sept, I will try to be there.

After that, I will be at the two way range far away from here...
Link Posted: 7/14/2005 8:23:37 PM EDT
I'm game, any time any place lots of notice. We have got to do this!!
Link Posted: 7/15/2005 4:30:56 AM EDT
Okay looks like there is enugh interest here, lets start picking some dates. I've heard lots of notice a couple of times so lets say September. (If there are no objections.) And for now, we'll assume a Saturday shoot day? Unless someone has another idea.

Option 1
September 3rd is a Saturday and the begining of Labor Day Weekend. We may want to avoid this due to the holiday, but its open for voting.

Option 2
September 10th is a Saturday and is the second Saturday of the month.

September 17th is off the table due to the Tactical Carbine class in Pueblo.

Option 3
September 24th is the last Saturday of the month.

Option 4
September 5th is a Monday, and is in fact Labor Day. I'll just throw this one in for another option.

I'll let this sit a day or two, and if there are no major objections to Saturdays, I'll post a poll or something to help fix a date.

10th or 24th
Link Posted: 7/16/2005 6:25:13 AM EDT
I'm in... with some advance notice (see other input at COARFCOM)
Link Posted: 7/16/2005 9:16:46 AM EDT
Labor day weekend is out for me I will be camping.

The 10th and 17th is black powder deer season I will be hunting

That leaves the 24th if that is the day everyone picks I'm in.

Me too. I'm all there.

Let me know!
Link Posted: 8/1/2005 11:10:29 PM EDT
I have Sun,Mon off but with enough notice I can make a saturday, or just bang in sick.

Any thoughts for somewhere in the middle of CO for us in the southern regions?
Link Posted: 8/2/2005 4:32:44 AM EDT
If anyone knows of a site in Central Colorado that might be good. Traditionally the Colorado site shoots at Pawnnee for North shoots and Woodland Park for South shoots.

Any suggestions for alternate sites are welcome.

How about Harris Park, north of Bailey? It's hard to arrange a shot past 150 yards, but it is relatively central.
Link Posted: 8/5/2005 10:46:32 AM EDT
FWIW , I may not be able to particapate My wife got laidoff last night , So we are back To surrvival mode ...again . High Tek Sucks .

At least I put a nice revolver on "layaway" at one pawn shop the other day ...... (I sure as hell wouldnt do it today) and a Yugo 47 paid for and on the way from Samco .

The Bailey area might not be too bad an area for those of us on the western slope. The Grasslands, while a great place, would be a heck of a drive for us.

I'm beginning to think it might be tough for me to make it. Sept. 17 would likely be the best weekend for me, but it's pretty well out. Too late in the month and I'll be preping for deer/elf season in Oct.

When is the "elf season"and what would be the app. round?

I'mm thinking like 22-250. Small and fast.
Link Posted: 8/6/2005 5:19:24 AM EDT


.30-06 w/180gr Nosler Partitiions.

We grow them big and tough around here.


Damn, I'm always doing that. elf/elk

regulation states for elk the round must be .24 (6mm) caliber or larger, expanding bullet of 85 grains, and 1,000 lbs of energy at 100 yards, not sure what to use for elf?
Link Posted: 8/8/2005 8:06:05 PM EDT
If we should have one in late September because two of Arfcom's famous or should I say infamous New York members will be coming out here to shoot prairie dogs and we might be able to make a Colorado Arfcom Shoot.
Link Posted: 8/9/2005 12:32:54 AM EDT
the Godfather and his family are coming this way? omg


pawnee is out of the question too freakin far for everyone.. thats why we don't usually go there anymore (we go up near Lyons now).

thats what really sucks around here.. no real nice place we can go that's central to everyone.

No silly. For Elves, its Elf Bowling. And to get the maximum velocity on your bowling ball, you need one of these:

Sept. 10th at Pawnee sounds good.
I just moved to CO. Who can make this happen?

I would like to participate but weekends are tough. Not impossible though if it were closer to the Front Range than the Grasslands.

I guess I am not much help but wanted to tag the thread and give it a bump.

Sept. 11th is the dragon man shoot.

Sept. 17th is the CO ar15 site shoot

So how about Sept. 24th? As far as a place to shoot Harris park would be a good place as well as Woodland park or St. Vrain canyon.

I am posting on behalf of the CO ar15 site to try and get as many as we can to attend so let me know what all of you think about the 24th.
Link Posted: 8/29/2005 9:30:35 AM EDT
Sorry guys, I've been a little tied up lately and didn't have time to tend this thread.....


Let me review it and we'll see what we can do.
Link Posted: 9/12/2005 8:48:50 PM EDT
Bump. Anyone still interested?
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 12:05:54 PM EDT
I just found out that the 24th is clean up day at Harris park so that wont work. I will also be going up to help with the clean up since I do shoot there often. If anybody else can come and help it would be appreciated. We are going to meet at about 9am. The forest service is closing down ranges left and right because of trash so we are trying to keep this one open.
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 5:59:51 PM EDT
In addition to our monthy (CO-AR15.COM) shoots, we're kinda working on a 2 day event for next year. So come on over and check in and give your input.
