Phoenix meetup(s)

#1 Post by davidpinaz » Sun Oct 08, 2017 11:25 am

I'd like to meet up with some Phoenix area gun folk, maybe make it a regular thing, going shooting at a range and/or in the desert.

Anyone up for that?

I'm also looking for a more liberal CCW instructor so my girl and I can get our CCW's. Any recommendations?

Thanks all!

I'd drive down from Prescott on a weekend for something like that.

Woo! I don't know any desert spots to shoot at, yet. Hopefully someone else will chime in for that part, unless you know of some.

But, I'm down with some range time.

I'm a tad South of the Metro in the desert.

Pistols on occasion out back, informal rifle distances about 15 min away.

PM sometime.

There's always Ben Avery, I guess. If you're willing to go out toward Apache Junction and beyond, there's plenty of wide-open in the Superstitions area. If anybody wants to come up this way, I have a membership at a huge outdoor range just north of Wilhoit, and guests are always welcome (as in it's free). By huge, I mean twenty acres, ten of which are developed into pistol pits and a 100yd rifle range with some targets up the side of a small peak which take the range to 300yds. Target stands, steel poppers, and benches with shade are already on-site. I'd be delighted to play host.

I'm down... I live in South Mountain Area ( technically Phoenix ) - don't like indoor gun ranges would LOVE to find some
private land to fire off a 100 rounds or so. New to the area not 100% sure about driving into the Desert and shooting away,
I understand that if you end up on a Reservation and pull a stunt you can get into some real serious trouble.

Temps are falling into the high 80's... time to get out the sweaters - let's go.!

So we have Prescot, N Phoenix and way S Phoenix. Do we want to meet first, have a drink or something, or just go shoot?

If everyone is good for it, let's plan on, say, in 2 weeks? Either the 11th, or the 18th?

I'll drive to whichever, North or South, but I kinda want to be fair to everyone, heh.

The 11th and the 18th are both fine by me.

I'm not. I'd be happy to share my email with anyone if that makes things more convenient. I do have a Diaspora account... :ugeek:

It seems the 11th wasn't going to work for me, heh! Let's plan on the 18th, and since it looks like just you and me (and my girlfriend), we can come to you. How does early afternoon (1-2p-ish) sound? Did you want to meet for a drink/lunch first?

Sounds fine to me! Lunch or whatever would be good; I think I know just the spot. I’ll PM you my email and phone.

If you ever decide to head to Las Vegas, stop in Kingman for some coffee and table talk. There's also a world class range here comparable to Ben Avery and I have a friend with a 500 yard range on his 40 acre ranch. The range at the Mohave Sportsman Club is $10 a day for non-members but my friend's range is free. You just have to keep quiet at my friend's ranch about the LGC.

No takers so far. I know it is a few miles (paved, even) to our place South of the Phx metro.

Some family even made it from Sweden, so it can't be that bad :-)

Seriously, I'd love to meet any of you with some time on targets.

Since I'm retired, my schedule is busier than ever, but marvelously flexible.

Your toys or mine.

PM me.

I'm down for a meet up in Kingman and/or South of phoenix. Unfortunately, I tend to hibernate a bit when it's this chilly out, lol! We should definitely plan some things in March and onwards, though.

And one of these days I'll put up a post on our last meet with AzAndy up in Prescott...man that was a blast!

I'm all for a meet up in Prescott, Wickenburg, Carefree. Anything in the east valley or south I need 2 days since I'm an old fart and drive slow.

I know its been some weeks since this was last posted in but I live in phoenix and would be totally down with meeting, even if we're talkin a several hour drive.

also as far as open spots to shoot i stumbled on this map and was curious as to people's thoughts about it's accuracy, specifically has anyone shot around the spots west outside of phoenix?

Since folks had to drive all the hell the way up to Prescott last time, I figure it's my turn to do some driving. Subs and Doug and harriss, I'm sending you my email so we can work something out. (David already has it.) I'm okay for any Saturday or Sunday.

Back on. Sorry I was decompressing for a while after exposure to NRA trolls.
