Me and a friend during a training session August 2008.

It rained....ALOT. The gravel pit turned into a mud pit. Here's my 92FS just before cleaning right after I got home. It never hiccuped, or failed during the session.

Keep in mind that all the gear pics are after a fair amount of mud was washed off by the rain......

For what it's worth, I know that the terrain is not really the best area to practice tactics such as these, especially considering the confined area, heading into an enclosed space, etc. But we account for the variables as best we can so safety isn't compromised and it's what's avalible so we use it.


The crew is good, solid people who've got their heads screwed on tight. No safety violations, and they're competent running on the hot range.

These pics are also only representative of a few of the many sessions that we've run. We normally don't do a lot of pics.

Thanks for the compliment.

Not sure what you mean by "organized".

If you mean as in how organized the classes are, then yes, we are very organized. The importance of having everything understood, practiced, and carried out appropriately prior to going live fire is very important.

It has always been my goal for the students to leave with the same amount of holes in their bodies that they arrived with. I have been successfull in this matter with one exception and that involved myself.

About the rocks, we've found that back splash is only an issue at shorter ranges and therefore either set targets far enough away from the rocks that we can get close to the targets, or if the targets are on/in the rocks, the instructors call cease fire at an appropriate time during the exercise. Keep in mind that ceae fire does not necessarily mean the end of the exercise as the tactic involved in the oct. session involved fighting through the enemy position, setting 360 security, calling in ACE reports, re-distribution as necessary, then moving to a rally point off of the objective in the event of a counter attack/artillery/etc. A smart enemy always has his own positions ranged and targeted.....;)

About that singular incident, well, it involved the rocks. The place we train is an active gravel pit, so throughout the summer, it changes a lot. We arrived one sunday to find it greatly modified and we set the targets too clost to some fresh rock.

We were shooting for a good couple of hours with a few small backsplash reports and even a .45 cal copper jacket that turned into a frisbee that most of us watched come flying back behind the fireing line.

At one point I called a string of fire and all of a sudden, it felt like someone flicked me in the chin rally hard. I ignored it and called another string of fire and looked down for some reason only to find blood dripping down my gear and M4.

I waited for the string of fire to end and told the guys to hang tight. I turned around, headed back to the med kit, got a gauze pad out and one of my Traumadex packets. I stuck the traumadex covered pad on my chin and held it there for a few seconds until the cut clotted up and held the patch in place.

We checked the targets and the back of the cardboard was filled with shards of rock, lead, and copper. We moved the targets to a safer location and finished the course.

A few months later I was in the dentist for a teeth cleaning and they decided to xray my teeth. They found a wierd object in my jaw and asked what it was. Apparently I have part of a copper jacket in my chin that I can't feel from the outside but come up on an X-ray.



Insofar as our group being organized, we are not a militia or anything like that. We are just a bunch of guys who enjoy training, learning how to better mindsets, our knowledge, our guns and gear, etc.

Like I tell everybody, this is about becomming a more competent gunfighter so that should worst come to worst and your family or community needs you in this capacity, you are equipped with the mental and physical tools to step up and make things happen.

I also encourage them to find training elsewhere and in other areas such as disaster response, first responder/first aid, ham radio, etc. etc. etc. I remind them that this part, the shooting and tactics part, is only one very small part of the bigger picture, and the most fun part insofar as training goes, but a necessary part non-the-less.

Great pics guys, I can relate to back splach, I nailed myself shooting steel with a .45 a couple of years ago. It got me real close to my manhood, believe me I dont shoot steel standing that close any more.

So with that said, its supposed to rain alot weekend buts supposed to clear up the next week, so we have almost two weeks to put a training day together. I know we are all on different pages as to are leval of training.

It looks like Douglas Ridge does not have anything going on the 14 & 15 .If anyone wants to go out we can shoot on the 100 yd range, make sure the long guns are sighted in, and also run a couple of pistol/rifle drills. As i said Im a RSO so if we had another RSO. or instructor to run the line for part if the drills, I want to shoot too guys, we can start seting it up.

So what say you all ? or should we go some place else?

Lets get together and so this.

Be safe.

I could easily see myself driving out to run some stuff on the 100yd range. Considering I now know that piece of grass quite well after a 3 day class out there.

Rob if you can secure us a time lets see what we can make happen.

It looks like the pistol and 100-200 ydr ranges are open, no out door class being held the weekend of the 14-15. We have a big 100-200 range , which Id like to use, so should not be a prob getting a few of us on. The nice thing about shooting in November is the weak of heart are home.

Yeah, I was really excited when I heard about them. Occidental Phoenix Stronghold is the line. Tim Thurner designed. Me Likey. A little pricey, but little to no lead time. Bought from Ross Road Bags.

Just got these honeys put on yesterday. Three clips thru them and I am satisfied that I will not be putting the Warrens back on any time soon. If anything, maybe a bigger dot on the front. To soon to say though. I'm gonna run it this weekend at a handgun class, and will post a report then.

Everything else in the PNW.
Last September in the Eagle Caps, Glacier Lake to be specific.
http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m222/alvincullumyork/P1030731.jpg

Whats better than hiking in the wilderness? Hiking in the wilderness and lighting things on fire.
http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m222/alvincullumyork/P1000176.jpg

And since its a gun board.
My dad and I were sitting along a ridge calling coyotes for about 30 minutes. It was starting look like a no show for the dogs so we where both zoomed out to the max looking down some canyons. All of a sudden I heard my name in a loud whisper twice and as soon as I turned around I saw the dog at 25 yards and and heard my dads 7mm mag BOOM. He couldn't find it in his scope and was trying to get me onto her when she saw him and started to run so he hip shot and missed. I saw the snow kick up right behind her heels and she took off. I pulled my gun up and tried to find her in my scope but that is hard to do when when its at 14 power so I put it down by my hip and started to accurately fire due to pistol grip, high capacity death magazine, and shoulder thingy that goes up. each shot I got a little closer and about the seventh one I caught her right in front of the rear legs. When I came up on her she was eating her intestines and then tried to come at me but thankfully my kimber didn't malfunction and I put her down. A day hunting with my dad is about as good as it gets.
