A free rifle with every post!


It seems to me that there are people constantly asking where or who I can get this done through. I think that we need to beef up and maintain our local information page.

What would you like to see different? I think things are pretty good. IT might be bennifical for others to scout out more places to shoot. We're a good team.

Not skin, but...............



I think we're doing OK, we've had quite a few new members show up recently......of course we've probably scared away a few too .

As a whole we seem to get along great, with a few exceptions, but that's people, not the boards fault. Team Orygun kicks ass !!

I think the suggestion to scout out a few more places to shoot is a good one.

I can go shoot at the CVSC range, but punching holes in paper gets boring after a while... and I have a whole box of Tannerite to play with sometime.

Before he left, Bang poste a map and directions to a few places he used -- basically just places further up in the hills than Brown's Camp. I have been wanting to go and look at some of those for a while, but only getting home on weekends stopped that.

There is so much public/Fed land in Oregon -- most of the state, in fact. We need to lay claim to a bit of it to shoot on.

An organised effort to locate a few new areas would benefit all of us.

Would be a bit of work, but I was actually just thinking today that it would be nice to have a schedule/calendar of local things going on... anything from a big get together to someone saying "hey, I'm going shooting over here; anyone care to join?" I don't know, just think something set up like a calendar would be easier than trying to track down posts or creating new ones. Kinda like if last minute you're bored, check the calendar, and see something like "oh, Boo is going shooting and says anyone can come. Cool, think I'll join."

Well, the dream is nice. Just my .02
Link Posted: 12/20/2005 1:43:13 PM EDT
It's a good idea, and problem one that should be started in the summer or spring when the shoots pick up steam.

I agree but I would also suggest completely non-gun related gatherings also. We do that up in WA and usually have a decent group of people who show up to drink a few beers and share a dining experience. It's a good way to meet others before you meet up with them armed out in the woods too.

I think a Calendar is a good idea. I can put something together for us like I've done for my training schedule [this is just an example, not a shameless plug]

http://www.awesomewebmaster.com/kennel/calendar/october05.htm

It would be nice to get a running order of the Oregon members too so people do not miss out on the boss things like "Coyote Shoots with Patty."

Of course part of the 'fun' of the board is amnesty so this later suggestion might not be possible.

Up north we had a contact list kept by a trusted individual that contained names, screen names, email addresses, phone numbers, etc. These were of course given at each individual's discretion. If you only wanted the list to have your email, then you just gave your email. Some of us provided cell phone, Instant Messenger ID's, and a city or regional location.

For the calendar, we could use the same software I used for the old AWB website -- it has a calendar, which could be protected so only members could edit it: http://nooregonawb.com/calendar.php

Oregon only Team forum to keep out the riffraff.

I have a obtained certain intelligence on a possible operation to have a little fun with the enemy, but I don't want to give it away on a public forum...

It's probably just because they don't like the new Mod....

Not that I've been here all that long, but I have noticed quite a few newbies showing up ( am I repeating myself? ) which is a good thing. But I will admit that we ( OK, I ) probably do scare some of 'em

Link Posted: 12/21/2005 3:52:54 PM EDT
I don't think we should do too much active recuriting. Maybe if you see someone in another forum from Oregon stop by and send an IM with an invite. WE can all do this from time to time.

Is there a way to bulk IM all Oregon members? I'd think that if there was a way, you should send out a bulk reminder to pop in here every couple of months. I have come across several Oregon members that forget that this area exists. It also seems that most of the action in here is from the members in the upper valley area. Is that because most of the events are held up here or are the events held up here just because that's where the most vocal group is? I think that you should have a few more events in other places and see who shows up.

Also, an AR15.com table at the shows would not be such a bad idea. However, I could see a problem with the number of passes given out per table.


Just random thoughts.

Link Posted: 12/21/2005 4:39:55 PM EDT
I can only speak for myself, but the reason I am hesitant to post half the time is because I don't really know any of the people here. The reason I joined is from when I ran into a few members at the end of a shoot and they recommended that I drop in here to see when events are. Being a social shooter, I jumped at the opportunity to (hopefully) find a group of friends to shoot with. But that's the catch; You post to talk with friends, but you find friends by posting. It's another reason I want to be part of another get together... easier to talk and exchange information in person.

I like Patty's idea of someone trusted that would have contact information on others. I for one wouldn't hesitate to make it easier for others to get in touch with me if they want to do something or needed help.

Anyways, I feel like I'm rambling. Long day at work (only internet connection I have for now) and am ready to go home. Safe paths...

I do think that it should be all of our responsiblity to IM other Oregon members when we see them (if we do not recognize them) and invite them to the homtown forum. One of these days there will be an issue with our hobby/sport/lifestyle where the larger the voice we have the better off we will be.

As for the location of our shoots, at last count roughly 75-80% of our members (who post) are located in the upper valley area. Seems like a slam dunk for out functions to be centered in or around the area with the largest attendance in here.

Trust me, nobody more than myself would love to have something more central than they are now, but if the shoe was on the other foot.......

Car pooling works wonders



The team only forum idea was not to exclude people, per say. I just don't want to run into what those guys at CalGuns ran into where they got screwed by posting stuff in a public forum. Much like the intelligence I obtained searching the Oregon forum on another website. Imagine a news crew showing up to one of our shoots to do a hit piece to gain support for an Oregon AWB.

I'm sure we wouldn't do anything to warrant negative reactions, but there are always people with an agenda.

Maybe I'm just paranoid.

ETA: I will start sending IM invites whan I see OR members I don't recognize. With time the Oregon ARFCom team will become the Oregon ARFCom Army. I will resist the urge to use the "M" word.
Link Posted: 12/23/2005 5:59:44 AM EDT
Another angle…how do we get the word out to people not participating and to others who know nothing about the site? How do we advertise? I tell like-minded shooters at work about this site and another Oregon Gun site but haven’t got them in deep enough to reap the rewards…

I know one thing that helps the forums thrive and that is more participation from the “lurkers”. These are the guys and gals reading and never posting for reasons listed previously. Intimidation to post may drive some of the apprehension…Hey lurker; jump in it’s ok.

I’ll keep doing my part to get people interested….
