Mayhill/Runyon farms
« on: July 15, 2010, 06:46:32 PM »
Ok folks looks like the EIP will be going in tonight for an Aug shoot at Runyon Farms
Halfway between Alamo and Artesia. Only 25 yards available but the range fee includes camping and "A river runs through it".
Lets press this one.
Also working for a tabel at the gun show in Roswell 31Jul-1Aug to promote this one.

Sam, I could probably help you on one of those two days at the gunshow.  Give me a shout if you need me.
Jeff

P.S.  I'll see if I can get my wife to go 'camping' with me and the guys the weekend of the shoot :)  We haven't been in a while.

Thanks Jeff,
Hopefully we can get a table at that show. If we do you are welcome to ride over with me, save a little gas.
Called them this AM, we may be "space available" but a free table is a free table.

As always we are short of promo time so getting the word out is critical, esp since we need to cover a range fee to use Runyon's. 
I won't be able to camp out, Gloria will be in Az at a trial she scheduled long ago so I'll commute,need to come home and tend critters.

If you're going to commute, and are offering a ride, I will help out on BOTH days.  I was trying to avoid paying gas both days and don't really like to do overnighters without the wife.  Also, I have a small folding table we could set up outside if they don't have space inside.....might be another option, if they will allow it.  Oh, and what are the dates for the shoot?  I think I can get a couple of people to get involved.

Hey Jeff, glad to see you here! Xsail here from OK. Ducdog, are you SB'ing? I'm in there for 14-15 but Strawberry won't be able to attend. While it may be cooler up there, it won't be down here for the critters. I'll be awaiting the flyers with baited breath so I can get them distributed down here. Got a 2atf function tomorrow so that'll be good! :)....O.L.

Here is a Google earth pic of the range area. The road on the right side to the river is where we go in. The big white spot on the curve of the river is just to the left of the burm and range. Camping will be between these 2 places.

I spoke with one of the Otero County Sheriff Deputies a little while ago, saw him at Lowes home improvement.  I mentioned the shoot to him, and what Appleseed is about..... He got a glint in his eye.  We might just see him and his wife, along with a few other deputies at this shoot. :D

Jeff,
Remind them this one is 22's only, and because we are short on range space they need to pre register

I did let him know it was only a 25 meter range, and I did one better.....I told him to come to this site for the info on it.... :)  I still have to email him a link to here, but that's easy.

Woo Hoo, Nancy is starting to get a little excited about this shoot....... I bought her a Mossberg .22 (don't yell at me for doing business at Wally-World, it was $117, the scope will be about $70, sling swivels $9....can't afford much more right now) and we'll be hitting La Luz on Friday to give it a test run.  I told the guy at Daves that I was looking for a .22 to Appleseed, and he smiled......reached into his safe and pulled out an all-weather 10-22 already set up for $290.  I told him I couldn't afford it now, and bought 3 boxes of 333 bulk ammo.  I probably need to get back there with a flyer for the shoot......if Sam doesn't beat me to it.

Jeff, "and we'll be hitting La Luz on Friday to give it a test run."

Make sure it runs reliable with that ammo. There's nothing more frustrating then gun problems while drinking out of a fire hose. What model is it?....O.L.

It's a Mossberg 702 with synthetic stock....and La Luz is the 'test-drive' for it.  I don't want to get in the mountains and discover that it doesn't function well.  If I'm not happy with it I'll have time to get the cash together for a different rifle for Nancy, but I may not be able to get the 10-22 I want.  I DO like the fact that the sights are adjustable for both elevation and windage....even though it will be scoped for Nancy (Trifocals suck).  Friday will give me, and Nancy, the opportunity to become more familiar with it....and decide if it will work out.  I broke it down and cleaned it last night to get the 'factory oil' off of it, and it seems to be fairly simple.  I still have to find an extra mag for it, but Daves MAY have one (or two);  I have to hit Daves to check out their scopes and slings anyway.

wishing you a wonderful day.

Jeff, it should be fine. Push comes to shove there'll be loaner guns there. Work with her on fast mag changes. Don't know about the 702's open sights, the ones on the 10-22 are junk.

If she's like me with the glasses, they tend to ride too low with a scope where I'm looking through the top frame and have to push them up on my nose. What helps with that are muff type hearing protection. The muffs help hold them up. Just a detail that helps me.....O.L.
