Last time was great so lets try it again with more people.
According to the Club's web site (I assume we will go to the same place?), the only open days in May or June are:
July is wide open as of now.
So far, all of those dates work for me...
I know RockRiver is interested...will send a PM.
May 28/29 is no good for me. Any other time would be fine.
You can count me in. I had a great time shooting and meeting everyone last time. May 22nd is out for me as I'll be out of town. The only day in June that isn't good for me is the 12 as I'll again be out of town.
Let me know what is good for everyone.
How far away is is from Western MA?
As of now, looks like the date will be June 5th, or we go into July.
Let's plan it like this:
JUNE 5TH, 11:00AM
$10 per person range fee.
List as of now is:
Ex-MA Hole: Yes
Mi Amigo and His Amiga: I will ask
Glock Glocker: ?
Mrs. rcm: Yes
Third Rail: Yes
To be Mrs. Third Rail: Yes
Directions are pretty easy- 93N (or south) to Route 89N (right before you get to Concord). Get off at exit 2. Left at end of ramp. Go 4-5 miles, and Pioneer is on the right. As far as landmarks, there aren't really any. Best bet is to watch for the "Entering Dunbarton" sign; it's not too far after that. Pioneer has a big white sign. The road to get in is a dirt road, ok for cars to travel on. We can meet at the clubhouse. I will probably be in a blue Audi- if the weather is nice, then I may be in an old Impala.
What can and can't you bring for guns and targets?
Sounds good to me. I talked to "Clocktower" and he's in as well.
Is this still rolling here? May I invite myself?
Hi rcm. It's an open invitation and anyone in the area is welcome to show up. It's a lot of fun. Bring plenty of ammo.
Targets- Paper ONLY. NO plinking (unfortunately).
Guns- No auto, no .50s.
Anything else, just ask, and I will find out.
Is this an indoor or outdoor range? Distances? Ammo allowed for shotgun (shot, buck, slugs?)
If the date works out for my fiance and myself, we'll show up most likely.
Out door range is what we will aim for. 50 and 100 yrd rifle, as well as "private" pistol area.
I don't know of any shotgun limitaions...
I am updating the list above.
Also- it is a $10/guest range fee
Oh boy! I'd finally be able to try buckshot, birdshot, etc.
Count us in, barring any unfortunate events.
Hm.... so, I have to ask - what is everyone going to bring, can I shoot it if I bring ammo, etc.?
Never hurts to try.
Thirdrail- You can try whatever you want! I'd LOVE to try a shotgun- can't say I've ever shot one.
I'm bringing a bunch of 9mm ammo (P99QA), as well as some .38 (642, Mod 10) and .22 (P22)and 30-30.
The other guys have some NICE stuff. Rockrivr1: What do y'all need?
If my two friends come again, they will be bringing ammo this time!
I have lots of 30-06 (200 or so), lots of .22lr, some .38spl (50 rounds), and I can spend a few bucks on whatever else we'd need.
And, of course, I'll have to get a few more boxes of slugs and buckshot.
EDIT: Just told my fiance that there will be at least one .38 there.... She said she'll have to use her female charm to get to test it out!
Hummmmm, looks like I will have to empty out the safe for this shoot.
I'll bring a lot of the same stuff I brought last time. M-4, M1A, Garand. I'll leave the 50 cal at home. To bad though. Love shooting that thing. I may mix it up and bring my SAR-1 and maybe my FN Police Special 308 Bolt.
LOL, yeah ammo. Have them bring LOTS of ammo.
I have a nice HD Mossberg 500A that I'll bring along as well. Third_Rail tell your future wife I'll bring my S&W 66 and 686 Plus for her to try out if you tell me your recipes and methods for making BP.
Rockrivr1, would you like me to bring some 30-06 for your M1? It's the Korean stuff, but near as I and the two others that have used it can tell, it's non-corrosive.
Also, anything else we need in terms of ammo I can get more in the coming weeks. Just can't spend too much on it, maybe $50 or so.
Recipes for BP? I have all of the recorded recipes, from the first early Chinese to the current Swiss mixture.
If you're serious (it's hard to tell on the internet), I'll type up my methods for making it, take pictures while I make a batch, etc.
If you bring your SAR-1, you'll have a friend for life. I'll even pick up a few boxes of Wolf, if that's acceptable fodder.
Ex-MA Hole, I HAVE to ask this... does this range have a "don't load more than X rounds in a magazine" or a "one shot every X seconds" rule? I'm sick of 5 rounds and 5 seconds (and then getting yelled at for "rapid fire"!)
EDIT: Thought of one last thing... Does anyone have a .22lr revolver I could convince them to bring? As much as I love larger calibers, just plinking at the paper with a .22 is nice sometimes. (And it's a guilty pleasure, seeing as I don't have a .22 at all!)
I'm in and will probably bring my wife. She will bring her carry .38 (632) so, third your wife is welcome to shoot that as well. If someone needs .38 ammo that day let me know we can bring xtra.
I will need directions, just an address in Dunbarton will work. Dunbarton is where this is right?
Looks like I'm bringing my .38spl ammo for sure!
Jessica will be very happy about that news.
Third_Rail, Actually I'm very serious about the BP stuff. I've always wondered if it's easy or hard to make. Don't go out of your way, but if you have any documentation you can easily print up, I'd love to have it. Hummm, now I have to convince my future wife that I'm making some type of plaster or something in the back yard. That's not going to be easy.
I'll also bring the SAR-1. I will warn everyone in advance that every once in a while it does give back a little trigger slap. Nothing bad, but can be a surprise if not expecting it. Take my word on that. I guess it's a pretty common thing with these Romanian setups.
As to your how many rounds in a mag question, last time I was loading up 30 rnd mags for my M-4 and everyone was shooting them off as fast as they could pull the trigger. That was fun! I'll let Ex-Ma-Hole say for sure as it's his range, but no one seemed to have a problem with it then.
As to ammo, bring what you want to shoot. I'll be bringing things that shoot, 38, 357, 40, 45, 223, 30-06, 308, 12 Ga and 7.62x39.
I also have an old S&W model 6 22lr revolver. I'll bring that to. Wow, you know now that I think about it, I haven't shot that 22 in a really LONG time.
Looks like we'll have some fun, no? I'll buy some ammo if needed, but wow what a collection we'll be using.
The largest semi-auto I've fired is a .30 Carbine. The .308 and 30-06 should be fun. (Not to mention the .223!!)
Name some brands (Wolf, Federal, whatever)/types(FMJ, SP, HP, LRN) of ammo and I'll pick some up in the coming weeks.
One last thing.... Is the SAR-1 double hook or single in terms of the trigger group?
The SAR-1 has a single hook trigger group. You can buy a double hook trigger from Tapco or some other vendor, but they cost. To me it's not worth putting a $100 plus trigger group in a rifle that only cost $300. Then again, I'm sure there wouldn't be any trigger slap with the new trigger. From what I understand I can take the existing trigger out and do a little work with a dremel to take care of it. I just haven't done it yet.
I usually use the Walmart White Box stuff for most of my plinking. As to the 30-06, I've used the Korean stuff and it seems to work fine. I stay away from the Korean 308 ammo as I've had some cartridges with splits in the casings. Very very bad. You can't beat Wolf for the 7.62X39 ammo and I'm currently using some surplus South Africa ammo in 308. It's pretty cheap. As to the type, just get yourself FMJ. It's usually cheaper that way. No use wasting good JHP or SP for plinking.
$100? Hardly... more like $40.
Here is a link.
Hm, so WWB .223? I can buy Wolf in 7.62x39mm, so that's taken care of. I'll bring some of the 30-06 and .38spl as well.
$40 huh. Hummm, not sure why but I thought they were more.
Yep WWB 223. They come in boxes of 40 rnds for pretty cheap money. They seem to work fine. I've also used PMC and others. I never tried Wolf 223 yet. Not sure how well they would work.
