So as the title states, I’d like to gauge interest for a long range NV/ thermal meet and greet hide style . I have permissions to some land that most likely can get us 1k-1200 yards after the crop is cut. (This fall) at the very least 800 yards. This is 3 mins from my house and we can BBQ at my place afterwords (edit: or before hand) and drink plenty-o- beer. 😂
I’m near Hershey PA, accommodations for yourself will be on you, and you must have some sort of night gear to join. This isn’t a “ let me come check out others cool toys without bringing my own type of thing” lol
So if your in Maryland; the Virginia’s, Ohio, NY etc... and wanna make the drive. Or if your extra fancy and wanna fly down, your welcome to. Let’s plan this out as a group. It’ll be on a weekend, most likely a Saturday night. And it’ll be in the fall. No cost, but if you wanna pitch in for some steak and beer it’s kindly appreciated as I know you savages probably eat like wolves combined with fat bastard from Austin powers.
lol
Regards
Felipe B.
Edit : there’s two hotels that are decently priced maybe 1/3 mile away from both the farm and my house...

Guys I know most people on here have seen the cool toys before and have land to shoot on. This is meant as a get together to meet like minded individuals and shoot different and cool gear!

Also.. might be smarter to bbq before hand considering this is a night shoot.... although I don’t know how beer and guns will mix / resonate with some of y’all.

I should add suppressors are a big necessity ! I still have to check with the farmer if we can even shoot unsupressed at night , I’m assuming most of y’all that have night toys have enough coin to invest into proper hearing protection!

    Go around!
    Going “around” is even worse — NY!:eek:

    I’m from NH (dad still lives there). MA is the original communist state. NY followed and doubled down. Then CT, the “Constitution State” according to their lying-ass license plates, went and tried to prove they’re even more commie than MA and NY. Of course, then there’s NJ, which is both the armpit of America AND the model that Commiefornia aspires to be.

    Poor Piper. He’s surrounded worse than Custer.

    Will update this in the next couple days with more info. As well as a poll on when we should do the meet up. Majority weekend will win. I’d essentially like an RSVP and will limit it at a certain number of shooters, that will still be determined. If all goes smooth and turnout is good there’s nothing stopping me from doing this every couple months?!

    Will be updating thread accordingly as more details become available. Still working with the farmer to allow this to happen! Biggest obstacle right now is cattle, if someone shoots a cow on accident !? Well it would be a cluster fuck lol 😂

    Might be helpful to wait for fall/winter for foliage so cows are extra visible.

    Or show him that Cratos watching mice in a field, if that doesnt convince him might find a new property.

    I'm hoping this lands on a weekend where I can make this.
    I have a bunch of NV and cans to use, and shooting LR in the dark is my favorite.
    Little less than 12 hours for me, but this sounds like it'll be worth a scenic drive 😁

    Update: I’ll have a final position by the weekend. If he says yes I’ll need forms filled out for every participant claiming they are responsible for their own actions & that there will be no responsibility/liability on his part. Shoot his equipment or livestock you pay the bill.
    Also might be a caliber restriction , (as in no .338lm Of 50bmg lol) suppressed only & it’ll top out at either .223 or .308. If y’all are cool with that we will make this happen most likely.

    Here’s what I just sent him based on what we have talked about/ what his concerns are. Hopefully this nullifies some concerns as far as accuracy of these weapons & of the shooters. Biggest concerns at the moment seem to be shooting into neighboring farms & or livestock/ equipment...

    “Alrighty so here is my idea. Barbecue / meet and greet / Nightvision / thermal long range shooting event. Once a year, Limit capacity would be 15 shooters, on a pre approved night of your choice. Range 600 yards and in(or maybe 800), in 100 yard increments with steel targets at each range. One firing line, I'll be the range master making sure everyone is safe and that nothing can go wrong. Caliber restrictions .308 or .223 and under. These are considered small calibers that fit in short action guns. Bolt action firearms only. Suppressors/ silencers will be mandatory. Everyone will fill out a form weeks in advance saying you (the owner) are not liable for any wrong doing, and that they are responsible for any damage to your crops , livestock or equipment. All of these guys either are known to me, or friends of those known to me. No random people, all have references for being safe shooters and all compete in long range shooting. Most of these guys can shoot a 2-4” group at 500 yards, just so you have an idea; we won't be doing any unsafe shooting or anything like that. All of these guys have 10k-30k+ into their rifles and night gear . This isn't some sort of low budget guns or low quality room for error type shooting. These guys are professionals. There will most likely be half a million dollars worth of Nightvision equipment being used, so by no means do I want you to think it's just some folks dicking off on your property. There will be a set of strict rules to follow”

    Did I miss anything ?
