Shotgun Shootout! @ Clinton WMA Sunday 8/16

Recommended Posts

UPDATE - Had a great meet on 8/9, but there were others who expressed interest in the following Sunday 8/16. Leaving this open for anyone to "sign up" if they want to get together and bust clays that day.

_______________________________________

 

This meet is open to anyone that wants to bust clays in a safe manner joined by people of similar likes and passions. Everyone stresses safety 100% of the time and should be compelled to raise an issue or call someone out if they see anything unsafe going on. Forum members often bring friends and family and as long as they follow the safety rules, everyone ends up having a great time.

 

If you do not own a shotgun:

- Yes you can still come and hang out with the group

- Yes you can buy some clays and ammo and borrow someone's shotgun (I have no problem lending mine and most if not all people we've shot with don't have a problem with it either)

- and have never shot a moving target up in the air, there are plenty of experienced people in the group that would love you coach you and have you busting clays in no time. I shot my first ever clay with a shotgun at the first meet we had a few years back.

 

WHERE: Clinton WMA clay range in Clinton, NJ

ADDRESS: 26 New Jersey 173 Hampton, NJ 08827

WHEN: Sunday 8/9

TIME: 9am at the Clay range

Please try and bring everything you can in terms of a gun, ammo, and clays. A rough check list of what to bring:

- Gun(s)

- Ammo (birdshot #7, 7.5, 8)

- Clays

- Thrower if you have one

- Eyes and ears

- Shell pouch

- Beverages/snacks

- Weather appropriate clothing

- Chair

 

If you can't bring some things, we will have plenty of stuff there. If you've never shot a shotgun before, an experienced shooter will try working with you to be able to dust a clay by the end of the day!

 

Gun rules to remember:

- Always treat a gun as if it was loaded

- Keep your finger off the trigger until you're ready to shoot

- Never point the muzzle at anything you're not willing to destroy

- Always be aware of you're target/line of fire

- Keep all guns unloaded until you're on the firing line

 

We need at least one person with the group to have a hunting license. If you're coming, please reply to this thread and note if you are bringing a thrower and/or have a license.

See you at the range!

Thanks for making up for me slacking, Lalo. Summers are always super busy with me with working a lot combined with plans on the weekend so it gets hectic. Once September gets here I should be less busy and will be on top of organizing shootouts, hopefully two a month.

RF, are you going to keep us in suspense and wait until we see you at the range to tell us what's in the box? C'mon!

I'm tied up the first two weekends in August, for the Sussex County Farm and Horse show. I have to work our federation of sportsmens clubs tent sat and sun both weekends. Arnold donated 4 cases of clay birds to us before moving to Florida. I picked them up last week, thanks again Arnold and good luck with your move to America! I'm good for any other weekend. With my thrower.

    • I find it interesting that over penetration is a concern with a 357 revolver but not an AR?  The 357 is pushing a bullet with a relatively large frontal area out at 1200ish FPS.  The AR is pushing a streamlined little bugger that's quite pointy at close to 3000FPS.   To the OP: What is your home's layout and size?   Do you share a wall with  a neighbor?   Do you have a spouse/kids or do you live alone?  Do you have any training on firearms? Do you understand the differences between "ball" ammo and defensive ammo? Are you someone that can actually point the muzzle of a firearm at someone and attempt to destroy them?   No need to answer these questions in the thread.  They are posted just to give you something to think about.   For me, I have a striker fired, semi auto pistol with passive safeties next to my bed with a flash light.  It is loaded with defensive hollow point ammunition.  Why?  Because my home is small and my neighbors are close.  HP's expand in walls and dump their energy into the plaster better than ball ammo will.  When I miss my intended target with HP, I feel some reassurance that the bullet will stop in the wall/ceiling/floor before hitting someone that I did not intend to hit.   That's me. If I had a larger house and/or more land to "defend" I would consider an AR for home defense.  But for my scenario, my choice makes sense to me.  It may not make sense to or for you.   I have owned more than a few AR's over the years and have never considered them in a defensive role in my home.  They are toys for me.  I have a battle rifle, but it's not what sleeps next to me.  It is, however, the gun that I would use my pistol to fight to get to if the time came.  In the world, it's a very versatile tool.  In my home, hard pass.   And, by the way, if you're simply looking for an excuse to purchase an AR, by all means have at it.   Good luck.
    • On second thought what the OP really needs is a belt fed MG, crew served if possible so his wife can get in on the action. 
    • Thank you so much for the offer. Gonna send you a pm.
    • Sandpaper should do it. I mean the pistol grip is held on with a bolt up through the bottom of the grip and a nut dropped through the bottom of the receiver. Shouldn't be any fitment there. Stock has a couple screws, take them out and wiggle it off, wiggle the new one back on. Maybe sand the stock a little to fit. The lower fore end slides into the receiver and locks in with the latch. That fitment might need sanding on either end. The upper fore end rotates around the gas tube. There may also need some sanding there. But with upper and lower fore end, I'd try wiggling them to fit first.
