I got sick before the last one, but will make the next one. Looked like a lot of fun from the pic's.

ETA: The Pe Ell range if available.

Is the previous location out of the question? Looks like some nice digs for this type of event.

What about a fundraiser type thing?



Money raised could go to a worthy cause (or even upkeep/repairs @ the range we use). If it was for a good cause we might even get some sponsorship from instate industry...? Just saying....

Seems as if the last one went really well and was well recived. I just hope the next one is not on a weekend that I'm not working...

Does that mean you want it on a weekend you are working?


ETA: I have a rimfire now, so I might be able to go!!
Just don't do it in July or November, because I will be out of state.
Link Posted: 6/22/2008 7:17:00 PM EDT
Had a great time at the last one... I'd be very interested in another one!
I'm not saying I'm going to volunteer for food duties, but I'd be happy to contribute.
Link Posted: 6/22/2008 7:25:42 PM EDT
Hell Yes. Please let me know.
Link Posted: 6/22/2008 7:32:35 PM EDT
I would do again but woudl hope the drive would be a tad less for us northenders,,,

Though I would be all in to carpool to help with gas. And since it is only one day...
Link Posted: 6/22/2008 7:33:56 PM EDT
depending on when, i might be in. hopefully will have my spike's based rifle done soon, and have a 1911 in 22 too. but lots going on with summer and projects and a wife at 32 weeks... :D

We have a nice multipurpose range at the Capitol City R&P Club.

Nearby there's a clubhouse with a kitchen. However, for this many people we would have to bring in our own grill(s).

I could bring this up at the next board meeting on July 11. How much money can we dangle in front of them?
Link Posted: 6/25/2008 6:27:11 AM EDT
I think Mommity and I would love to do it again. Maybe even carpool with 2 more people. 3 if they're skinny. Gotta be a Sunday. Only day I'm available. The Pe Ell range wuz da bomb. But, I sure would whine if we end up with something closer. After 15+ years, I dropped my membership to Tacoma Sportsmen's Club, so I can't offer that venue. Maybe we could find a pit or something like that, maybe south/east Pierce or Thurston Co.

What's the small bore range like there? Looks like it's about the same overall distance as the last place for us southerners.

I don't have a grill to bring, but I'd be willing to bring 50 or so franks (and some $$)where ever we end up.

Working on getting some solid information. I have a feeling that this will have be put on the agenda for the next board meeting.

Just got a hold of the club president.

Apparently there is an application procedure during which various board members running the facilities are supposed to review and approve. I will have more information once I get the application form which includes the fee schedule.

Not out of the question at all, that I know of. But a few had wished, and mentioned, interest in it being held more local to them last time. Proper manners and all...

Thanks FishKepr.
Hell yes! I'll check with the few Clark County operations. Not much in the way or metal .22 targets, but much more "local" for some of us.


Edit: honestly, I just want to go shoot. & a .22 shoot this summer would be outstanding! I don't care where or how much.

I was originally told the the fee schedule would be with the application. It was not.

Had a chat with the person responsible for the CCRPC multipurpose range this evening. Apparently for an event like this we need to supply our own NRA certified range safety officer. Is there an RSO in the house?

I asked about fees. He's not sure, but said that matches at the multipurpose ranges typically run about $5 per person. I've shot matches at the high-power range which usually run more than that.
Link Posted: 7/24/2008 11:02:23 PM EDT
any update(s)? … my GSG-5 came in today
Link Posted: 7/24/2008 11:35:48 PM EDT
No cat herders (RSOs) available?

BTW, the application also specifies that all food handling at official events at CCRPC must be done by certified food handlers.

Too much red tape for WA ARFCOM?

F'n guys up North! They already make all the libtard/socialist laws up there, why do we need to cater to them for shooting locations too?

North, Smorth, the south will rise again!

Bump for a last ditch effort to get you sorry yankee saps to quit scratchin' your bag for two seconds, and plan something in your own neck of the woods.

If not, we'll have to either do something unofficial, like just meet up at the LCR pit, or organize a repeat of last time... with different cooks or sack lunches.



LCR works.. It's a good hour plus for the Clark Co. boys, but about an hour for Seattle people... Probably won't work for the far north enders, but oh well!

LCR pit or the range as before works for me! What about a Pot luck? Everyone bring a favorite dish... If there is enough food, awesome, if not awesome!
Link Posted: 7/26/2008 4:32:09 PM EDT
I'll be there wherever it is. That said, I was the first poll vote, and I voted for Pe Ell cause the facilities were perfect for what we do-- so since the vote is 100% in favor of Pe Ell, you can close the poll now.



(See me grinning? It's a joke, son, a jo-- oh, never mind--)

I'll get to it soon. Things are starting to lighten up.

Keep in mind that just about any one of you are welcome to come down here on any weekend and we'll go shooting. I'm usually already going or thinking about going anyhow. Holler anytime.

ETA: moved to IM; more appropriate.

No certified ones I guess. I only know one, and I'm not inviting that prick anywhere.

I'd say that is probably too much red tape, at least for me to deal with at the organization level. (I'd be fine attending if someone else dealt with it)

Thanks for checking in to it for us.

So, anyone else have any great ideas for getting a rimfire shoot off the ground at a more central location for the guys up north?


I'm an NRA CRSO

When is it?
