This is the last update before our 2nd Annual (?!?!) Northeast Blogger Shoot (alt. title: Meat, Greet, & Skeet). Previous updates can be found here, here, here, here, here, and here
Here is the final list of participants:
drmac (& Mrs. drmac)
For any who may be interested (Bruce, Weer'd, I think you guys are the closest), I've got room in the truck for at least a couple of passengers. I'm on the North Shore, so anyone coming from the eastern side of MA/lower NH is more than welcome to park @ my house and ride out with me (it's about an hour, considering that I will be carrying enough ordnance and ammo to conquer Canada and will therefore be traveling at exactly the speed limit the whole way...)
Everyone is exhorted to bring their own bug spray, beverages (bring lots of water, as it's supposed to be hot on Sunday), chairs, and, most importantly if you're not a shooter, shooting gear. At the very least, pick up some disposable ear plugs; ideally get yourself a decent set of headphone-type muffs. Also, if you don't have sturdy eyeglasses or sunglasses, please invest in some eye protection.
Targets should be either biodegradable (read: watermelon, etc.) or easily cleaned up (cans, plastic bottles, etc.) NO GLASS - no computer monitors, old TVs, etc. If you've got an old washing machine that you'd like to riddle with bullets, feel free to bring it - as long as you pack it out at the end... I'll be bringing a stack of paper targets as well as some laundry detergent jugs filled with water, but those go quick, so... Milk jugs and 2L soda bottles are quick and inexpensive reactive targets when filled with water (please fill before-hand, as there's no water near the range).
Also, if anyone has camera/video equipment I'd be more than grateful. I've got a couple of ideas I'd like to get on video, and would appreciate it if someone could run video for a few minutes when we get a moment. I'll be bringing my camera and tripod, but the more the merrier. Plus my battery doesn't last very long...
An e-mail will go out shortly with directions to the whole group (at least those I have e-mail addresses for, hint hint...). We're getting together at 10 and shooting until we get thrown out or fall over from heat exhaustion, so plan on a long (but fun!) day.
Ordnance can be found in one of the updates, as well as comments for several updates. I'm planning on bringing extra for everything I've got, but if you want to bring extra ammo, I'd say that 7.62X39mm (AK/SKS), 7.62X54mmR (Mosin Nagant M44 and M91/30), 12 gauge, 20 gauge, and pistol ammo (9mm, .38 Special, and .45 ACP) would be the safest bet.
E-mail's open for any questions. Also, if for any reason your name is on the list and you can't make it, please let me know ASAP. Thanks!
That is all.
