N.J. informal pistol & shotgun shoot..........

Come one, come all to an informal "Thanksgiving Day weekend" get together of TFL members on Sunday, November 25th starting at 11:00 until the sun sets. The shoot will take place at the Buckeye Gun Club in Barnegat, N.J, 10 miles outside of Longbeach Island. Facilities are provided at the club house. You must bring any food or beverages you wish to consume during the day. Bring your own targets and ammo. We will be patterning shotguns, as a lot of people are asking for this, and we will be doing some informal pistol shooting. The range will be exclusively for TFL members and anyone else that is accompanied by such so this is a great time to meet the people behind the log on names that we interact with. No magazines that hold over 15 rounds are aloud in the State. When transporting firearms they must be in a locked container and in the trunk or as far away from you having easy access to them(for pick-ups behind the seat if possible). Ammo is to be in a seperate container and locked also. For directions to the club PM me and I will PM you back with them. Please only bring pistols, shotguns, or black powder rifles. The range can handle up to five people at a time and you can shoot at the 50yd line or the 100yd line but not both at the same time. The cost to each person is NOTHING! All that the club asks for is a donation for using the facilities. If it is supposed to rain that day we will change the date since it is an outside uncovered range. Thanks, and I hope to see a lot of you there! : I think I've covered all the bases!

Check the N.R.A's web site to make sure what you are bringing is legal in this state

This is a great idea! Alas, I have just sent my 870 barrel away for a bit of back-boring. This is the one that I will need to pattern but I do not think I'll have it back in time. ):
I will be ready for the next winter shoot though!
Have fun gang.
Mike

I'm going to research those Gun Laws in NJ. I have to look for something to lock up my guns. I don't have anything as fancy as K80Geoff does. Does it actually have to be LOCKED or just in a closed container. I drive a Mini van and don't have a trunk. Do they sell ammo there?

N.J. Laws....

SodaPop,
They don't sell ammo or targets. Bring your own food or there are stores close enough to order pizza, sanwhiches etc. Under N.J. laws they must be locked up and not within easy access to you which means all the way in the back of your mini-van. Look it up at the N.R.A's web site and it will clearly spell out the transportation and storage of firearms under "possesion" while going to and from the range. Any questions feel free to ask.

Ok I have the roll of brown paper already in my SUV so I can't forget it this time. Bring you Shotguns or use one of My 870's

What kind of target frames does the range have?

Trying to figure how to set up a 3' by 3' piece of paper to shoot patterns.

Club location.......

SodaPop, K80Geoff,
HaHaHa! You'll never find it! Just kidding. The offical address of the club is 501 Rt.72E, Barnegat N.J. The closest point of reference to the club for you SodaPop is the intersection of Rt.539 & Rt.72E. That intersection is the first traffic light on Rt.72E from the Lebanon State Forest Circle were Rt.70 & Rt.72E meet. Staying on Rt.72E go through the light and count 16 telephone poles on the right hand side. At the 16th telephone pole(I believe it's mile marker 14/5)turn right into the driveway. Welcome to the Buckeye Gun Club. What direction or road can you easily access? Rt.38 or Rt.73?

For K80Geoff, if you are comming from the shore area(Garden State Parkway)take the Manahawkin exit onto Rt.9. Rt.9 will run right into Rt.72W. If you go out of Manahawkin before finding Rt.72W turn around. When you are on Rt.72W stay on the road until you hit the intersection of Rt.532 & Rt.72W. Stay on 72 and keep looking to your left. You will pass a Mansion on your left with a cement wall. After the mansion there will be reflectors on a telephone pole, 2 or 3, that is where you will make a left. If you make it to the light you went too far. Turn around and look for the 14/5 mile marker and make a right into the driveway. The impact area is 16'x4' of compressed particle board on a wooden frame. Behind the frame is 4' pieces of telephone poles stacked 7' high with the soft side facing the shooter. Behind the poles are a 6'deep hill of dirt compacted into the poles so you will have no problem puting up your 3'x3' piece of paper for patterning. Any other questions? Feel free to ask.

Rifles??

I thought the invite specified pistols and shotguns. What is all this talk about rifles of any type? Ray, please straighten us out on this. Is the shotguns patterning only or is there traps?

DEAD, listen up..........

All I requested is an informal shoot for pistols/shotguns. I do not wish to have rifles at this time at the range. We will probably do something to that extent the next get together. We will be patterning shotguns, shooting pistols, and geting to know your fellow enthusiast. I have a skeet machine that we will hook up to shoot after we pattern on K80Geoff's paper. Can anybody else bring clay pigeons? Any other questions feel free to ask. Are you coming DEAD or are you still out?

Nov. 25th

Dead,
I just reread my last post and thought it sounded a little too strong. No offence meant or intended. I didn't want to be the guy who showed up at a gun fight with a knife (or a rifle shoot with a pistol as the case may be). If you are strictly a rifle shooter and want to come, let me know and it would be my pleasure to bring a pistol for you. Quantrill

Yes on the slugs and buckshot. I'm gonna bring a box of clays also. Rovert, can you get some bird shot since this trip you'll be without firearms?

Can we shoot other targets? I have a pile of AOL CD's I have been itching to blast but have not had the opportunity. I would clean up the mess afterwards of course

Soda Pop, don't forget to bring some of those large cardboard box covers!

Ray --

Depending on whether you want to keep this a TFL event or not, you might get some nibbles from NJGunClub on Yahoo (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NJGunClub .)

Prolly won't be able to make it this time, but I hope you guys have a lot of fun!

Best,

Okay....this is wierd....I do most of my TFL browsing at work (shame on me, I know!), but I didn't get any PM alerts till I logged in at home...even though they are both logged in, same OS, same version of browser. Wierd...

This is a great idea, getting the NJ TFL'ers together. Unfortunately, I can't make it this time. I'm spending my weekend up in Lancaster with my Godparents. Haven't seen them in a long while, was planning it for months. Next time I'll try to move heck and earth to make it, though.

I'd only ask that someone be so kind to provide an after-action report....I think a nice synopsis of all the fun will be an extra kick for us to make sure to be at the next one!!

Ray, my schedule's changed and I'll be there. Please let me know where/when it is and also what you'll need from me in the way of ammo.

Also, if anyone who's coming owns any of the .45 Glocks (21, 30, or 36), I've been trying to try one out, without luck. Would appreciate it if you could bring it along!

Thanks,
- pdmoderator
