We were shooting up at the pit yesterday and some people just drove up about 20 feet away and got out and started just walking around getting setup.

I mean, sure its fine if they say hey were gonna be shooting over here that way or something but they just drove up ignored us and stuff.... wtf? They were close enough we couldnt comfortably go check our targets with them shooting.

We waited a good 5 minutes and stopped shooting but they still had ignored us so we started shooting again regardless. Surprised the younger of the 5 of them quite a bit. So I loaded up the .308 figured its louder than his 357 maybe and sure enough it was.

I mean, I dont get it? I thought it was pretty much policy to atleast give people a wave or a hello?

(snows also gone enough a tiny compact could get up to memaloose pit)

I also saw a few "LOST DOG" posters, I also found the dogs body. So if thats any of your dogs, someone shot it in the head 4 times with a .22 while it was sitting on its doggy bed and then covered it up with a dirty sleeping bag. Thats atleast where I found it anyways. :(

My own personal rule is if someone is already there, I go somewhere else.

I'm a bit more social. If I'm already there shooting and someone pulls up, I'll initiate contact. I do this to find out the demeanor of the newbees. If flags go up, I leave. They're cool, I get to shoot their stuff. I always watch them and they mishandle the weapons, I'm gone. Moderate beer drinking is ok with me but if they're into the liquor, I'll leave.

Should I pull up and there's room for me, same thing.

I pull up and no room, I go elsewhere.


YMMV.

Ill usually approach the person/ group at one point or another and see if theyre ARFer's. If not then Ill either keep and eye trained on them or head to a different spot. Ive seen quite a few safety hazards.

where is the dogs body? My girl and I will be heading up to Memaloose this sunday, I dont think we would like to have a run in with it.

... if I was alone, on the other hand Id make a puppet out of it.

j/k thats sad that it happened, poor doggie, bad people

Damnit.. I just washed the truck from my tuesday shootin/muddin trip up there.. I'm gonna have to get it dirty agian.

im kinda mixed on the issue. When I head out to the pit(a dif one in molalla), I always pull up real slow with the windows down so I can hear if anyone is there or not, if there isnt I yell "YESSSSSS!", if there is oh well. Usually I enjoy the types of people you meet when shooting on public land, always interesting convos and getting to check out dif guns. havent had any iffy experiences yet but I know what means "I should get the fuck outta here now"

Sheeple are a social animal. Ever notice how when you park your rig way out in the far end of a parking lot, because you don't want any dicks or old ladys hitting it when they open their doors, that it never fails that the next car will pull up about 6" away from you? You go to the market and are looking at an item on the shelf, guess what, some dick wants to rubb shoulders (and take long showers with you, probably) and look at the same fucking product? Same at the gun show, I look at a table and some cock sucker walks up and stands there looking at the same fucking thing! I HATE SHEEPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have you ever considered therapy? I sense some animosity towards towards things social... like society and towns bigger than 3 people.

Makes me want to say, get the f*** out of my bubble...

Its to the left up over a ridge in sort of a bowl area. Someone probably saw it and shot at it, walked up and went "Oh shit" and finished it off (seeing as it was a .22)

Thanks for the feedback.

Yeah I know what you mean about trying to find an empty pit, we had to drive 2 hours and then the people that were there (bayonetting phone books no less) finally had left. So we got out and went shooting, an hour or so later is when the other people drove up.

Reason we had to go to one of 2 pits there (the other had a couple who just was sitting in their car cause it was so windy and cold) is I was trying to sight in some rifles and needed atleast 100yds. Of course on the way home every pit was empty, but then again it was around 4pm.

i was up there yesterday in my Jetta at the spot before the pit.. *it seems more privete and you dont have to worry about other yahoos shooting when you want to check targets*

i dont know maybie we should all get an idea what everyone drives and meet up with thouse people when we are up there.. that way we can keep an eye on eatchothers backs..

Here is an Awesome IDEA!!.. Like handicap Mirror Tags.. Why not a Bright Orange ARFcom TAG.. Put it on your Rear View Mirror when you approach the Shooting pit.

You guys keep talking about "other pits" and this spot "before the pit"... I have seen some seriously unsafe things out at the old rock pit (never felt really in danger, but some of those fools sure should) and always am looking for other alternatives...

Ive never been to any of the pits that these guys mention. Ive mentioned on here before a few times about the pit I go too, its in the Molalla recreation Corridor. about 100 yards shooting space.

Man, you ain't kidding about that.

When I was working at Sumitomo, the closest restroom to my office was the main building restroom.

Row of urinals, 5 of them. I'd walk in, nobody in the restroom, and take one at the end.

In-freakin-variably, the next guy to walk in would, out of 4 other urinals to choose, TAKE THE ONE RIGHT NEXT TO ME.

I'm sorry, but that's got to be a warning sign of gay disease.

Messed right the hell up.

Maybe you should go see your proctologist. I hear that it's extremely contagious.
symptoms include: excessive redecorating, frequent viewings of Brokeback Mountain
and development of a severe lisp.

Remember kids IT CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE.

Please refrain from using the word "gay" associated with disease. Some members are a little sensitive to the whole "gay" comment thing.

I saw on TV they said "Broke back mountain is a good date movie" .................WTF? Take a girl to see a gay porno......................what a novel idea!


What's with the lisp anyways? My x-boss told me it's from giving soooo much head, so why don't chicks talk with a lisp? They must just talk that way so they can spot another one in a crowd?
