Time to do a pit shoot. Looks like TRG won't be here until January so lets go to the Chehalis pit on the weekend of 12/6 and 12/7.

Can you say tannerite, propane, glowsticks and tracers? I knew you could!

Any ideas, suggestions or comments will be taken at this time!

camping there or is it just a show up each day thing?
Link Posted: 11/19/2003 5:09:07 PM EDT
I always camp there but not everyone does. The nighttime B/Sing, campfires, and tracer mag dumps are the best!

Them roads might get a little rough with snow on them, especially with the triler on. It's all good though, we can just get a big assed fire going to stay warm once we make it up there. Propane in the snow would probably be fun! Can't wait!

Yes, I'm pretty sure I will be there. Not positive on camping yet. Might need to give another arfcommer a ride down from Gig Harbor.

Hope to see you all there...

Well, ARFcom is back on the line.

Did everyone show up or was it delayed?
Link Posted: 12/7/2003 6:43:35 AM EDT
It was canclled due to poor weather conditions and I assume bad road conditions too.

Guys, it was a beutiful day!
Link Posted: 12/8/2003 1:17:55 AM EDT

Ya, I went up there with a couple of other guys and had a blast, shot propane, tannerite. Had a bunch of pop up displays from a store as targets, like the ones in the theaters. Also had a life size mummy from a halloween store, it took 308 rounds all day without being destroyed, even took it home to use it again.
It was sunny and clear skies till about 1pm and then it rained a little so we set up a huge awning and shot clays till it cleared up again.
The night shoot was fun too, but the propane didn't seem to go as good because of the cold weather. This time we strapped 2 glowsticks to either side of the tannerite and just aimed in between them, worked pretty good. Buddy had the new springfield scope for his springfield m1a, with the illuminated recticle, worked much better than the trijicon at night, although we had a full moon too. We did a little Bob Lunden style shootin with the pistols too, my Beretta sounded like a 93r. They extended the pit to the north quit a bit also, alot more room to park and it made the range longer too.

Best part was, we had the whole pit to ourselves cuz none of you camera toting pussys showed up......

Yes it was a beautiful day for shooting! I remember waking up sat morning and seeing the sunshine, then thinking that it was to bad no one posted or e-mailed me directions when I had requested them.
