    Hubert suggested this for the LaCrosse area, so why not for us too.

    A get together to let fellow shooters try other handguns, long guns and holsters. Maybe even help one another be better shooters.

    Lets see who is interested, what types of guns and then we can set up a date and location in the Chippewa valley area.

    I will take the lead on this, but welcome help. If you have land that we can legally shoot on that would be great. Ranges are ok, but with the amount of people and firearms, someones private land might be better. My property will not work for this.

    Please list your location, firearm with caliber and holster type.

    So basically a very adult game of "I'll show you mine if you show me yours?

    I think it is a great plan, there are several pieces of equipment I would love to try before dropping money on them.



    If this takes place on a Monday, I may be able to come out and play too.

    I may have our spot to shoot. Some crazy racecar driver has a nice location and we may even convince him to cook some burgers too!!

    If you don't want to list your firearms on the site, PM them to me and I can post a list that does not have anybodies name associated to a firearm.

    We can make this happen!

    P.S. - I do not work for the GOV'T, Brady foundation, or any other group that wants to register your guns or take them away. Thou some of you have some guns I would LOVE to have in my collection!!

    Right now, we are looking at mid July. Our land owner is getting married June 26th, so nothing before that. Next weekend is July 4th weekend. So, 10th, 17th, 24th?

    Does anyone have any portable targets, shooting benches or rests (like a Lead Sled or Ranson Rest)?

    Also, we would like to keep this to under 25 people. We would also like to keep this to OCDO and WCI people. Your kids and spouses are welcome. If you want to bring a buddy (non OCDO/WCI), YOU are responsible for their behavior. So, if you have any questions about their firearm safety, leave them at home!! This is someones private property, not a range. We will have some folks work as "range officials" to keep things safe, but you will be expected to act like responsible shooters.

    I might be interested depending on the date. With work and the family it's hard to commit to something more than two weeks out.

    Pistol:
    Glock 17 (Full size 9mm)

    Long guns:

    Stag Arm AR15 in 6.8 SPC (right hand)
    Savage bolt action in .270

    5, we are slowly plugging along. I will try and solidify a date. I like July 24th, but need to talk to the land owner first. I should have an update tonight.

    Sorry, computer problems.

    Looks like the afternoon on July 24th. I will post a complete gun list when one of the others who will be attending forwards it to me.

    Also, remember that ammunition is not cheap. So, that being said, part of the reason I want folks to post the caliber is so you can purchase/bring your own ammo to shoot in other folks guns. And...factory ammo only for use in others guns. If you want to use re-loads in your own firearms fine. Your gun, your ammo. My gun in your hands...factory ammo only. Some people do not know or understand SAAMI standards. And, I would not want to be responsible for wrecking someone elses gun is I reloaded incorrectly.


    This is going to be a fun day!!

    I desperately want to shoot a Taurus Millinium Pro PT145, which is a .45 sub-compact and a .380 LCP to compare. I will bring .45 and .380 ammo.

    Well, well, well, I received a PM from a local guy who has.......











    Barrett M99 .50 cal BMG :what::what::what:


    A BARRETT M99 50 BMG!! If he can make it he plans to bring it. Before you all go out and buy all the 50 ammo before I can get any, stop! This ammo is very very expensive, so do not buy any ammo until he gives me the 100% that he will be there. He may also be able to sell ammo for a very very small fee over his cost ($.18). Also, he may have requirements as to which brands and type of 50 ammo. This gun is also very very expensive!! MSRP on a base model is $4,410 from Barrett. His Barrett, his rules!


    Damn, I hope he can make it. I will have to work a little overtime to buy some ammo for the 50 now too.

    11) This web site is focused on the right to openly carry properly holstered handguns in daily American life. Do not start OFF TOPIC threads or discussions such aspromoting the carry of long guns. Long guns are great! OCDO co-founders John & Mike and most of the folks on this forum own at least one long gun - but due to urban area issues of muzzle control, lack of trigger guard coverage, and the fact that the long gun carry issue distracts from our main mission to promote the open carry of handguns in daily life, we will leave long gun carry activism in the capable hands of the future founders of web sites about long gun carry

    Welcome to the forum, and thanks for your input.I like the pretty red letters.

    P.S I believe we were talking about shooting long guns, not carrying them, although it is hard toget them from place to place,without carrying them.

    CarryOK - Have you read this thread I started? I am trying to help other OPEN CARRY people to make smart choices before they purchase a HANDGUN or HOLSTER by getting the opportunity to shoot a variety of HANDGUNS before buying one.

    Yes, I understand the rules, I am in no way intending or telling anyone to "open carry" a long gun. That has only been said in this thread by you.

    If John or Mike believes that I have broken the rules by posting that the local folks can bring a long gun to our little get together, I will edit my posts and keep all the "long gun" talk to PM's or email. I am not trying to cause trouble, I want to help others enjoy firearms and learn the right, safe and legal ways to carry!

    also, you are from OK, are you in the WI area of the site trying to cause trouble? Curious?


    Carry ON!!


    PS - John or Mike - if you believe I have broken the rules please PM me and I will make any changes necessary to correct this issue. Thanks.
