    Some gas money would be nice. Keep checking this thread, we'll coordinate rides as the date gets closer.

    Getting closer, everyone.
    Have we decided on Nov. 5?
    Have we decided on Yuma?
    On a range?
    Let's start to nail things down, so we can all plan our lives accordingly.

    The 5th is fine for me. Yuma works. Don't know anything about the ranges there other than what was posted.

    Can we have the California people meet together somewhere along the way so that we can all caravan together and not get lost?

    Where along the way can we get the LA/OC/SD people together?

    I think that is a very good idea. Somewhere along the 8 east would make sense, I think.

    I was gonna suggest The Jacumba Exit gas stations as a good meeting spot due to familiarity and the gas.

    As for ranges, the Rez dump is kinda small. 4-5 cars at the loop at most will fit.

    The small range (#2 in the pics)is at the end of an off-road vehicle area, so there is a ton of room there. It is an old abandoned range, so no rules or RSOs there. And if any of you are into R/C aircraft, you have to drive right by an R/C aircraft field out there, so you can geek out on that. Those old-timers out thare are pretty serious.

    Adair is a range, but I have never seen an RSO or any range personnel out there. Last time I shot there, it was with my Ordnance shop from MCAS Yuma. We had a cooler full of beer out there. I don't plan on drinking and shooting, mind you, just trying to give you an idea of how relaxed it was when I was there.

    It has plenty of room, and a 1,000 yard range. It is worth checking out at least. Fortunately all the areas are fairly close together. Oddly enough, Adair also has an R/C field.

    I googled Sprague's, the main gun store in Yuma and found this:

    Really good info.

    That exit would also work, but the good thing about Golden Acorn, is we could ditch some of the vehicles and carpool from there.

    Adair works for me as well.
    It has a camping area, which might be an idea for those of us coming from pretty far away.

    Camping area huh. I was planning on crashing on the Marine base but if they have areas to camp then cold ones in the eve around a fire sounds better.

    Exactly what I was thinking.
    Shoot all day Saturday, cold beer, cigars, and steak around a fire, leave Sunday morning. Sounds like a perfect weekend to me!

    Just have to make sure SWMBO doesn't object to staying overnight, or wants to come along herself (might be a problem with the little one though).

    I don't know if it is still there, but when I left in '01 there was a C&R/Surplus store right across the street from the MCAS Yuma front gate. Owner's name was Rick, lots of info on C&Rs as well as a lot of neat Curios, (Tokarev, Remington made Mosin Nagant, etc, etc). For those of you who still live in free states, (like AZ), he sells EBRs as well, like CETMEs, AK variants, etc.

    I bought my M39s from him as a reenlistment present to myself.

    His shop is worth checking out, provided it is still there.

    Radio controlled aircraft strip? Can you shoot at the planes? :)

    Sounds like Dry Creek. :)

    Anyone else very much looking forward to this?
    I'm going to try to bring a bunch of pumpkins, since it'll be right after halloween. Ought to make for a good time.

    Any idea what sort of legal issues there might be in trasnporting our weapons back and forth over a state line?

    Obviously it is kosher since Yuma gets swamped with Cali dove hunters on Sept 1, but I was wondering what the rules are, (More concern about coming back in, I know AZ doesn't much care.)

    Unless you get stopped crossing the border to California, I'm not sure how they could prove you brought a weapon back from Arizona. And even so, if it's registered to you in the state of California, I don't there's a problem.

    Is anyone from a bit further up north than San Diego willing to do a carpool thing?

    That's the problem, though. Not everything here, (Long guns for instance, and pre-registration/DROS handguns,) has to be registered. There is a border checkpoint on the way back, and they ask questions sometimes.
