    Open Carry Picnic in the Wausau Area - Oct 9, 2011

    Open Carry Picnic in the Wausau Area.
    Sunday Oct. 9, 2011
    Noon until 4:00 PM
    Marathon Trap and Sportsman's Club - about 5 miles West of Wausau on County Highway N

    Food and Beverage will be provided. Donations accepted to offset the costs. I have invited Senator Galloway and she has accepted the invitation. Also, I have invited a couple of trainers/instructor so they will be available for a shooting demonstration, discussion of defensive shooting techniques and/or some one on one coaching. Still working on the details

    The picnic is open to all Wisconsin Carry, Inc members and their family and friends as well as like-minded men and women in arms. Let's celebrate the gains we have made during the last year in promoting and securing our right to carry.

    If you can help with grills, cooking, etc, please let me know. Also, this picnic will need to be RSVP, so if you are planning to be at the picnic let me know. I need to know how much food and beverage should be purchased.

    Keep this date open. The picnic is on, rain or shine. MTSC has both nice indoor and outdoor facilities.

    Being it on a Sunday and such a long drive, that would be a no go for me.

    Just don't expect me to get out my paintbrush and my cans of red, orange and yellow. Although, I suppose I could fly over the area with some spray cans. I'm glad you'd like to be here.

    This is a family event although there is no playground equipment. We have not decided on what will be shot yet. I have some instructors coming and they get to decide. The club has trap, skeet, and metallic silhouette accommodations be we will not be using those.

    Thank you PK, I seem to forget the new technology for finding one's way. I'm a map, compass, go-that-a-way kind of guy.

    I really need to make one of these soon so I can meet some more folks here. I will be in Ripon for a Wounded Warrior IDPA shoot for fundraising that day. If you can't make the picnic but could make the WW shoot, I strongly encourage that. It's a fun way to donate to a great cause and get some range time too.

    The Marathon Trap and Sportsmanís Club range consists of a trap and skeet ranges and handgun only, metallic silhouette, ranges that includes IHMSA Big Bore, Field, and 22 Rimfire. There are about six or so members of MTSC that are also Wisconsin Carry, Inc members, most of them signing up at the last gun show here. The silhouette shooters said they will allow some shooting at the various targets. You may use only handguns and handgun calibers. Only 22 Rimfire handguns may be shot at the 22 sized targets. Field pistol is limited to straight-wall handgun cartridges. The range master will have final say if a gun/cartridge combination is not allowed to limit target damage. The distances for these targets is pushing the limit for handgun use and we would probably alter some of the distances keeping in mind minimum safe distance for splash-back but yet make it somewhat achievable. Using a 357 mag or 44 mag on the Field or Big Bore targets is certainly within limits. You could bring your deer hunting revolver and test your skills. Range protocol must be followed. Open carry protocol must also be followed. So any carry gun will remain holstered unless you are on the firing line. Any other handguns that you may want to shoot must remain unload and preferably encased until you are on the firing line. Eye and hearing protection are required on the firing line.

    I will also have a portable target stand for paper targets.

    Since the shooting needs to regulated for safety, we will block out times for particular types of shooting. If the invited instructors need the range for their programs, they get first dibs.

    The extended weather forecast for Sunday is
    Sunday: A slight chance of showers. Mostly sunny, with a high near 70.
    What did you expect for Wisconsin?

    If you have specific questions, PM me. If you haven't RSVP'd me yet do so by Thursday. If you don't remember, do it again.
