    February CRPC shoot - Debrief

    I'm going to reserve the pistol bays at CRPC for probably the first or second weekend in February.

    My thinking for this event will be an emphasis on CQB with common rural and urban obstacles, and defending (or assaulting- it's your mindset) against multiple threats.

    I may do an urban course of fire in one bay and rural in the other, or perhaps suburban theme in one bay and a parking-lot scenario in the other.

    I'm thinking there will be 4 courses of fire - one each with battle loadout and carbine including transitions, and one each of just pistol w/ reloads in common street gear.

    this is basically just off the top of my head- input, as always, is very welcome

    keep in mind, weather will most likely be shit-ass cold and suck-balls wet, so if you're lacking in gear (got good waterproof/insulted boots with good tread?), now might be the time to place some orders (or be miserable!).

    all for now, will update as necessary

    Barring major conflict, I'll be there. I know they were doing the action pistol there the first Saturday of the month but don't know what the schedule is going to be like this year. I think they are shooting .22 indoor for action pistol in January. February, ?????
    I will keep my money, my freedom, and my guns. You can keep the "change".

    no fees as of yet. since we're an entirely open-enrollment/non-exclusive/non-fee group for training only, they haven't asked me for money yet. it's quite possible CRPC might want us to start paying a small fee at some point, but for now it's just whatever costs we incur on our own- ammo, target stands, targets, CRPC membership dues for those of us that are members, etc.

    i haven't worked out the course of fire yet, so i'm not sure on round counts. right now, i'd say you should plan on having 500 of primary and 250 of secondary, but we may only use half of that.

    clatskanie rifle and pistol club, located about 5 miles south of Clatskanie city limits. good little range, and my usual training grounds.

    it's actually not too far for you washingtonians- closer than portland, i'd say, and a damn sight closer than TCGC or DR.

    46 4'21.46"N
    12313'41.00"W

    Just come down I-5, rip through longview, cross the bridge to Rainier, OR, go west on Hwy 30. it's about 20-25 minutes west of the bridge, if you don't stop. Bob's Sporting Goods, in Longview, which is only 2 blocks out of the way, usually has ammo on sale, and generally not-too-bad prices in general.

    2 pistol bays reserved for February 7th. I requested all day, and will probably set the meet start time for 11:30, to allow time for guys to drive out and for setup time. I'm still working on course of fire- again, if anyone has anything they want to work on, drills they're interested in trying, etc- shoot me a PM or post them here.

    also, I could probably use some help with setup and takedown- i doubt i'll have too much trouble getting help, but if someone wants to commit to it, all the better.

    feel free to show up any time before 11:30 if you need to zero or want to get some other trigger time in, the rifle range will be open, and it does have a short side for pistol. the rifle range is, unfortunately, open to the public on weekends, so you may have to compete with strangers for range space, but it hasn't been too busy lately.

    as i said earlier, weather will probably be typically northwestian for february- plan on warmish clothes and rain gear.

    NEW PEOPLE SIGN UP! don't be at all intimidated- this is a very friendly, encouraging get together. like wichaka's sigline says, train at the speed of a gunfight- so all drills have a competitive edge to them for sake of making you hurry the **** up and get your shots off. but we're all here to help each other improve, and that's exactly what we'll be doing out there. so dont be scared- sign up and show up! fun shall be had for all.

    Almost forgot- we'll probably also do some low-light at the end of the meet. True night shooting requires special approval and supervision from range leadership, but in my reservation request to the RM i stated that i'd like to run some low-light drills at dusk.. not exactly "night shooting." i don't see any reason that should be a problem. i don't think most guys get the opportunity to do much low-light, so hopefully that'll be a little bit of a treat.

    More to follow...

    went and ran a few pretty fast-paced drills in one of the pistol bays today.. think it'll be a good shoot. run'n'gun, situational awareness, weapon control/manipulation/reloads are all to be put to test. the bays are nice for CQB, as they're small and confined.. almost claustrophobic. really adds to the sense of urgency, as your targets are in your face. being bermed on three sides, we have better than 180 degrees of fire in there.

    is nobody planning to attend, or do you all just trust me completely?

    please check in here if you're coming. damn seattle/everett shoot is bogarting all the interest!
