Depending on the amount of vehicles, it may difficult to park if we all leave the sultan park and ride at the same time. Please bring a map or save the route on your smartphone to the location in case we need to leave in a staggered fashion. Also the name tags are probably a good idea to make it easier to ask someone for help. I believe I get service with Verizon at the spot, so I will check the thread regularly in case there is stragglers.

I'm sure it goes without saying, but alcohol or recreational horticulture will not be welcome at this group shoot. Please don't forget eye protection, ear protection and your toys to show off to the group! :thumbsup2: :bigsmile:

Things I and my non WA-gunners are bringing

Two flats of water
Magnetic sweeper
rakes and shovels
leaf blower
tarps

I am going to bring my bug out medical kit....pretty much everything that would be needed.

Table.
Folding Chair...I only have 1-sorry
Tarp
Couple pair of gloves...will try and get more.
Does anyone have any trash cans to bring...easier to use the bags with.
I could only scrounge up 5 contractor bags, I will see if I can get more.
Going to try and pick up a leaf rack, for shotgun shells.

I picked up a discover pass yesterday.
I will have 2 open spots (back seat) in the Bronco Bronco...if it doesn't filled up with stuff.

-dimwit-

I hope to meet a few morning people, that would like to do weekend shoot out there.
I am getting tired of shooting paper, by myself-haha

I'll be in a maroon F-250 with room for a couple people. I got a Discover pass yesterday. I'll have a wheelbarrow, rakes and shovels, I'll also throw in a tarp.

I'm planning on stopping at the Sultan Bakery for breakfast if anyone is interested around 9am-ish.

Here's a bunch of photos I took. The day started off a bit rainy, but that passed pretty quickly. There were actually a fair number of people who basically just showed up at the wrong time to go shooting at the pit, but they decided to stay and help, and I'm hoping we get a bunch of newly signed up members out of it. The clean up took about three hours, but there were lots of hands to make the work go quickly. We could have easily used 2-3 more wheelbarrows to move all the bags of trash, but the young bucks got them moved out to the main road where the county will pick them up during the week.

Congratulations to Matt for putting this together, this kind of stewardship of our shooting spots is what's necessary to keep them open. He brought together a very diverse group of folks, recruited others on the fly, and shepherded folks who showed up later on into doing the right thing. It was a very inclusive affair, at least from my point of view and I'm glad (if tired), that I was able to take part.

We really need to put a "cleaned by WaGuns" sign, although to be fair easily more than half the people there were not from WaGuns (hopefully they sign up).

This guy worked his ass off moving trash from the site to the road, but he had several others as company to keep the bags moving in the right direction.
Image

Out at about the 130 yard mark or so, these guys did a really nice job getting lots of trash out of the bushes as well as the clean ground.
Image

Here's the view looking back toward the road, there were still plenty of bags to be moved.
Image

Notice the drone. Hopefully we'll get the video as the drone pilot was one of the guys we Shanghaied into helping.
Image

Image

Looking pretty clean, huh?
Image

This is the shotgun-only area that's to the left of the main pit.
Image

This is the pile we packed out (or I should say, mostly the young bucks packed out). That's Matt on the right with the gloves, and his dad, Greg in the foreground. You raised a good kid Greg, well done.
Image

The DNR guy taking down names and handing out receipts for hours worked. His first sign up sheet got completely smeared in the rain even though he tried to keep it under a plastic bag.
Image

The Belle of the Ball I think, my custom Mosin Nagant was a big hit. Most everyone took a round at shooting it, and gong at the 130yard mark took a beating (thanks Shanghaied group for bring all the nice targets!).
Image

Image

Image

She didn't want to shoot it at first because she was afraid of the recoil, but I convinced her to try one shot. Then she asked to shoot more...
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The Uzi was nearly as popular as the Mosin, maybe more so.
Image

After shooting the Mosin, he was fairly convinced that there might be one in his future, and he's never owned a firearm...yet.

That was a fun day. It's too bad we have to do that at all, but it was nice to meet some of you.

I'm now 100% convinced the 12 gauge is the weapon of choice for lazy slobs who won't pick up after themselves. That or anything that shoots 7.62x39.
