well, does anyone on the site shoot? anyone who does shoot, get out here on saturday. and well will shoot. we will have burgers for everyone. you bring chips, drinks, whatever else. and lots of ammo. make sure you bring your fun class 3 and NFA toys.

if you want directions message me.

about 15 miles north and east of greeley
39 miles east of fort collins
31 miles east of windsor.

and a long way from denver but come anyway.

IF YOU DONT WANT TO MEET A NOON, WE COULD JUST SAY 10AM AND LATER. BUT MEET AND SHOOT AT THE PAWNEE INSTEAD. To shoot near my house we need to get there about the same time and drive in. But if you want to get there whenever we can just shoot at the Pawnee. not right where everyone else shoots, we have a decent place away from most of the idiots. then you could straggle in from 10 am till whenever. i would be willing to say out there all day untill late afternoon. let me know by posting.

Wish I could. We're at half staff right now with all the public schools closed and parents staying home to watch the kids. Being a bachelor, I don't have that excuse.

What time works best for you on Saturday ?

And should I bring my F-250 or would my Honda Accord make do ?
Link Posted: 10/29/2009 4:00:45 PM EST
the car is probably fine. although you will have to park up the street. i dont want anyone knowing i let japanese cars on my place. just kidding. i am sure the car would be fine we dont have much snow. and it will probably melt some by then. and i am good about anytime.
Link Posted: 10/29/2009 4:23:44 PM EST
Saturday huh? I haven't shot in a while, that could be fun! IDK though, I do have a lot to do. Are you talking a private area or Pawnee?
Link Posted: 10/29/2009 4:56:09 PM EST
Saturday huh, what time?

Link Posted: 10/29/2009 5:10:39 PM EST
Saturday? ohhh.. what time? I have to go to DIA at 10am.. but.. I could load up the car prior....

Where you thinkin of shooting? I could bring the .50 if you have enough room..
Link Posted: 10/29/2009 5:50:43 PM EST
we can shoot on private with the .50. i dont have steel targets for the .50 though. or we can shoot at the pawnee if you prefer.
anytime is good but if afternoon is better for some, just set a time and we will go with it.
Link Posted: 10/29/2009 6:03:37 PM EST
10am or later is perfect for me. If there's anyone coming from FTC, gimme a shout and we can carpool.

Link Posted: 10/30/2009 5:12:12 AM EST
a truck might now be necessary. i will let you know this evening. we didnt get much snow. but we do have large drifts.

anyone interested in doing burgers and stuff? i can provide the beef. if someone brings chips, beverages or whatever. i will try to get to town today to buy propane for the grill.
Link Posted: 10/30/2009 7:46:58 AM EST
I'd be down with doing burgers.

Just a quick question where do we go for all this fun?

Noon works form me since I am coming from the south.

Link Posted: 10/30/2009 1:13:17 PM EST
I would love to but sundays are all I can make, maybe a sunday for the next group shoot.
Link Posted: 10/30/2009 1:20:58 PM EST
I'll be more then glad to buy supplies Hbar. IM me with whatever you want me to grab at Wally, and I'll bring it out with me.

Link Posted: 10/30/2009 1:23:47 PM EST
I'm in at noonish, from Fort Collins! Might try and carpool or something. Have a 4wd truck with room for 3 more. :)
Link Posted: 10/30/2009 2:41:21 PM EST
i will put out signs that say Arfcom.

1 will be at the place where hwy 392, county road 74 and county road 69 meet. then i will put one at the end of my drive.
Link Posted: 10/30/2009 4:56:08 PM EST
Meeting at noon will work for me - I can bring my beat up 12" steel gong that is good for .50 use. I haven't been out there since we did that clean up in the spring, but I liked how the area gives plenty of long range shooting options.
Link Posted: 10/30/2009 5:55:57 PM EST
Looks like my 10am trip to DIA turned into me 'entertaining' the people I am picking up till the boss' flight comes in... such is life at a law firm.

ps - HR does not think taking them shooting is 'entertainment'... (although I could expense ammo, how sweet would that be)

Looks like I will have to wait yet again to play with the .50..

So... if anyone wants to hang out with lawyers from 10am... till.. who knows when... No you can't use them as targets either.

If anyone wants to put down at $10k deposit you can borrow the girl :)

No I won't accept wives or children as a deposit lol..

I honestly think my boss did this because he WANTS to shoot the .50..

I'll keep my eyes open for more gatherings.. I want to get this Barrett broken in!

i think we should cancel then. if Monky isnt bringing the fun toy. well i guess we can trudge on without the fun one. But you should bring it up sometime.
Link Posted: 10/31/2009 6:59:22 AM EST
imitationdave and I are on the way!
Link Posted: 10/31/2009 7:00:42 AM EST
I'll be leaving the pad in an hour myself with Djkest.
Link Posted: 10/31/2009 8:23:44 AM EST
Leaving now.
Link Posted: 10/31/2009 10:52:58 AM EST
Man I wanted to come up. HBAR hows about a raincheck?
Link Posted: 10/31/2009 12:47:02 PM EST
I agree.. RAIN CHECK!

So done with work for the day now.. and it's only 4! I could get up there and shoot a couple times before dark..

Anyone bring any NV gear? lol
Link Posted: 10/31/2009 2:15:42 PM EST
How the hell did I miss this!

I'm all for a good shoot sometime soon.
Link Posted: 10/31/2009 3:41:39 PM EST
when ever anyone one wants to shoot i am probably ready. but today wasnt the best day. snow + sun = stuck.

we did get to shoot the big 50 bolt gun today for all of you who missed out. ha ha.

now if monky brings ronnie and chris's 50 we can see how it shoots.

WTH guys??? No pics??? Sheesh...

Link Posted: 11/2/2009 5:20:16 AM EST
That's better. Hey HBAR, what distance is the "range" out there??
Link Posted: 11/2/2009 8:22:13 AM EST
I only took one pic, this is me touching off the 50. It go BOOM

Link Posted: 11/2/2009 11:36:28 AM EST
we didnt make it to the range. but where we shot here in these pictures you could go 850 yards i think.
but if you make it another half mile or so you can shoot to at least 1200 yards. maybe more.
