If anyone is even interested in gathering up some people for a mini AR15.com shoot please post here
I usually go to blow off steam after work to Ft Dix Range 14 to shoot a few bad water jugs and targets
the more reactive the better
plus XM193 is the flash hiders nightmare
any interest? those interested should bring very FLASHY ammo
I found XM193 does great and can be seen on all lanes there...
I need to know what 7.62x39 does the same for my AK oops SAR1

Sorry Rob(FMJunkie) if it stomps on the saturday shoots but school is hurting my weekend playtime now....Maybe we can plan that night shoot we were talking about


Maybe you can sticky this post

what time does the range close?
Link Posted: 10/6/2003 2:58:51 AM EDT
it is supposed to close 8pm and they called it closed at 7;20PM ish this past friday
Link Posted: 10/6/2003 4:38:10 PM EDT
The range closes at 9 on Wednesdays and 8 on Fridays. However, depending on the crowd and the mood of the RO, they sometimes call the last cease-fire a half-hour early to make sure that they can CLOSE by 8 or 9.

And, this time of year is great because its getting darker earlier but its still not bitter cold. Very fun and interesting shooting at dusk and night...

I'd be up to go. Problem is I usually get home from work too late unless I cut out early, which I can do every now and then. I suspect a lot of folks are in this same boat. You'd probably have better luck trying to plan a one-time thing. Pick a Friday night in the next couple of weeks (like, 10/17 at 5 or 6pm) and let people plan to leave work early...

well Rob you being the ringleader or our beloved AR15.com C/O
maybe you can help put something together
mini friday night blast
I dont know the RO well enough to get a lane or two for a few crazies

I'd be willing to meet you guys on 10/17 for a Mini-Blast. Last weekend I was shooting up some old PMC that makes a nice big flash in sunlight. I think I still have some left over. I'm also curious to see what the flash looks like from an AR-10 with a 16" barrel. I guess we'll find out soon enough...

There's a good shot I can take a 1/2 day tomorrow Oct 10th & shoot in the late afternoon & evening. IM me, I'll check before 11 am. I'll be driving down from North Jersey.

great chance i am going depending on weather
but i think i am going

I would like to come down to see this if it's gonna happen.

I just joined the site last night cause i'm looking to build a rifle soon.

I'm a former 0351(Assaultman) and Security Forces Marine so the M16 and M4 platform are nothing new to me, but since i've been out my finger has been getting a little, shall we say....., itchy.

I'd like to get some eyes on some of the "kit" versions so I can make a good purchase if you guys don't mind me showin' up.

Link Posted: 10/10/2003 3:11:28 AM EDT
I will be there friday afternoon after 5ish
ER lets me out at 4 so Iwill get there ASAP
and sure feuerdog you can show up
we are all cool here at the site

I will be in a little red honda civic hatchback
look for the big muzzle flash
I will have my 2 Glocks and AR15 and AK47 oops SAR1

Welcome to the board, Feuerdog.If yor Rifle isn't complete by 11/8 aka The Great Pumpkin Shoot, there are plenty of them to go around at our gatherings and many variations.

Hey 555R, Sorry you can't make Saturdays for awhile, we'll always save a spot for you.I may have some vacation days left so maybe we can plan a Mini on a WED. or FRI.later on. Good luck in school. BTH
Link Posted: 10/10/2003 7:40:30 AM EDT
555R & anyone else, I'll be there around 4-5, I have a black 2 door Honda.
Link Posted: 10/10/2003 12:42:29 PM EDT
its raining as we speak 4 40PM
I dont think i will make this
Link Posted: 10/12/2003 11:23:47 PM EDT
I'd like to thank zbrane for letting me check out his AR and Kimber the other night, and for putting up with my questions and comments.

I'll definately be using the Fort Dix range in the future for my pistol practice and rifle work.

We even got to check out an SAR(?) AK47 that another guy down there was plinking with.

The weather was fine, and the range was dry, but a little breezy, no biggee.

I'm sure i'll see some more of you guys at the Pumkin shoot.

Sorry its a little late but, welcome to the board! I hope you can make it to the next BLAST, its a great bunch of guys and you'll get to see a lot more variations on the AR theme...

As for the fireball shoot, here's a pic I took this past weekend while attending a shoot down in Virginia... (that's what night fire is all about!)

Link Posted: 10/13/2003 2:17:13 PM EDT
well i missed out and it was raining where i live so I didnt go
I might try to get there this friday again
fireballs are the bomb
Link Posted: 10/13/2003 2:23:19 PM EDT
how do you guys capture the fireball with your camera .. do you take an mpeg and snag a still shot from it ? .. or what ..
Link Posted: 10/13/2003 3:12:25 PM EDT
its all timing... I had the guys do a round of 'fast as you can' rapid fire and took three or four pics. Just happened to catch it right!
Link Posted: 10/13/2003 5:56:22 PM EDT
damn looks like my muzzle flash
what ammo is that
Link Posted: 10/15/2003 11:25:54 PM EDT
I'm planning on taking Friday afternoon off to shoot at Ft Dix. I hope to see a few of you guys there!
Link Posted: 10/16/2003 12:37:06 PM EDT
well if the ER lets me out early enuff I am planning on being there
look for my blood red honda civic or the muzzle flash
Link Posted: 10/18/2003 11:12:36 AM EDT
Hey, nobody was there Friday, Antonio and I had the whole place to ourselves. Rain held off until the end. I took some avi movies with a small digital camera. Looks pretty cool on the small camera screen. If anyone wants to see or host them, let me know.
Link Posted: 10/18/2003 2:16:05 PM EDT
for starters I couldnt get there
computers were down and made life hell
Oh well there is always next week
Link Posted: 10/18/2003 4:09:54 PM EDT
Zbrane and I had a great time blasting pumpkins yesterday. They make a very nice reactive target. Sometimes a bullet will just make a small entry hole; sometimes chunks are sent flying 10 feet in the air. I plan on bringing a bunch of TAP ammo & pumpkins to the next NJ Blast.
Link Posted: 10/18/2003 5:29:13 PM EDT
suggestion
small hole in the top of the pumpkin
fill with water
use tap polymer tip ammo
Hornady TAP ammo
explodes good
Link Posted: 10/19/2003 3:13:40 AM EDT
You guys are BAD, captured evil pumpkins forced to drink water and then shot, what will you think of next, torture them with Happy Faces painted on them ?
Link Posted: 10/19/2003 5:42:49 AM EDT
hmmm maybe fill them with ballistic gelatin!
Link Posted: 10/19/2003 8:04:01 PM EDT
I was there Sunday afternoon...a million hunters in camo there
it was weird
they take one shot every 10 minutes...
No offense however to any of them or anyone here...
there were some big bore muzzleloaders there.
I think I kinda pissed a few off as I would rapid fire almost every single time
or do 2-3 round burst fires and an occasional 15 round blast.
plus the SAR1 would chuck empties onto the next guy in the lane next to me

I want to try and be there Friday again
anyone game?
Link Posted: 10/23/2003 9:22:59 PM EDT
555R, I won't be able to make it tomorrow night. If I can get some time off I'm hoping to slay some evil pumpkins on Halloween, though.
