Looking at Jan 16th for the next night shoot. I need to run this date by the board at the next meeting. Let’s plan on this date for now. I’m thinking I might run 2 dates in February as well but will cross that bridge later.

@laxman09

Doing very well, as I hope you and everyone is as well! Just been laying low on gun stuff with it being election season and the covid-19 panick. Dependant of the time frame of the activities I will try to make it out. Weekends are tough right now with the kids being so young and my wife working an opposite schedule from me so we don't have to pay for child care. It sounds like a blast and is definitely an area I need practice in.

Ha, very similar boat here. I want binos, but we're trying to build next year so I'm restraining myself.
Link Posted: 12/21/2020 1:21:47 PM EST
One of the many sweet things about that shoot, is checking out other guys gear before you dump money into a certain set-up you've only read about on-line.

Like I did.

I should be there with my binos, which are available for anybody to check out.

I would like to try to attend.
However I am not NV poor, just archaic, mostly
I have some sort of frankensteined gen II (I think) that was set up with a camera lens and the focal length is off, needs some spacer to get it to focus clear(ish)
Also have an early Vietnam war era gen I signal light - my Dad got this of the LST‘s Higgins boats.  Probably needs a new battery,  uses an odd size.

And have a newer ATN scope, but not tried it yet.

One of these days will get a PVS14 preferably white phosphor

Come out and shoot with white light. Plenty of guys were there last month with no nods and just wanted to check some out, shoot with white light, and get to know other shooters.

Id actually like to see that old stuff.

As of now we are going with Jan 16th for the next shoot. We will have a few things going on before the shoot starts. I’m thinking around 3pm we will have a demo in the club house. Josh from Patriot Valley Arms will be joining us for the night shoot and he is bringing some rifles in for people to check out. Of course they will be equipped with night vision units to shoot with. Also Filipe from Elite UAS will be there. He is a new distributor for Photonis and will have units on hand to check out. A lot of people have been asking to see photonis tubes lately and this will be your chance.

Pretty sure it’s $20 if not I’m overpaying, worth it.

I probably won't shoot as much this time. I'll still be there though.

ETA: Price is $20

Sounds like a great time.
Unfortunately I will not be making it, as I have another obligation at that time.

Happy new year fellas.

Yup! Had guys from Harrisburg and Philly show up last month.
Link Posted: 1/5/2021 1:30:50 PM EST
Hey guys next meet up is less than two weeks off. Sat 1/16!

NO NODS ARE NEEDED to show up. Come shoot using your wml. Come check out different nods. Come meet new people who share the same interests.

Cost is $20 cash to rosedale sportsman's club if you're shooting and I believe free to just watch and hang out.

Don't feel intimidated either. I only shot at night once before and that waals last months shoot. Everyone was very helpful and @hill_monkey (who should be there too) is a legit good guy.

Shoot me a PM if you have any questions.

It sounds like at 3pm they will be showing off some stuff in the clubhouse and around 4 gearing up for the shooting.

I'll probably be there closer to 4.

I can say the same laxman, he's good people.

Also, the fella that was gonna bring all the photonis units isn't able to get his hands on them till Feb. There's a guy coming from the other side of the state (that Geissele employee I mentioned last shoot) and he's got a set of photonis white phosphor binos that I'm sure he'll let yinz look thru.

Yeah my round count will be quite low. Probably a mag or two at most.

Someone should bring a portable grill

Bit of a drive for me but I'm going to make it as long as nothing crazy happens at work earlier.

Just curious, anyone on here from Washington County? I'm just over the line in Allegheny and my go to range is in Washington. Feel its past time to start networking since everything is going to shit.

Same. I don't know what to expect in terms of shooting, but I'm planning on coming. Bringing the wife unit, a friend, and possibly another couple.

Is this just a casual shoot? Or any sort of organized competition? If it's just casual shooting, maybe I'll bring a suppressed rimfire SBR with NV-capable sight. I have a decent supply of rimfire ammo.

It's an organized shoot but by no means a competition. Last month there were a ton of shooters, so it gets pretty busy. Bring ear/eye pro for sure. There is "open shooting" so bring your rimfire gun and someone will let you peek through some nods for sure.

I'm in Allegheny out in the vicinity of P.I.A. and there are a handful of other guys from Washington/Allegheny/Beaver counties as well. I used to shoot at a club down in Avella but they went super fudd on me so I joined a great little club out in Beaver thanks to @laxman09. Welcome to the group.

If you are on the fence about coming out, just do it!  Its a good time, even if you dont shoot. Check out gear, meet some arfcommers, and get out of the basement.

Where: Rosedale Sportsman Club
When: 3pm (to check out gear and shoot the ma duece if interested) or 4pm to start gearing up.  Shooting stops at 10pm.
Cost: $20 if you shoot, I believe its free to just hang out and watch.

@mbx5
@ditw
@beagledad
@jq66­
@pa452

Ill be checking arfcom once I get there. Ill post a pic of my helmet tonight or tomorrow so you have an idea of who to look out for.

ETA: This is NOT my club or my organized shoot, but a shoot open to the public. Im just pimping it because its the perfect time to do something new that few will have a chance to unless you own a private range.
