    Hello all,

    Moved up here a year or so ago from the dark place that shall not be named. I have been doing my best to get involved politically, and take new people shooting.

    Built a few ARs since moving and want to focus on training and possibly competition this year.

    Live in Vancouver with a 4x4. Down for meetups/shooting trips.

    Thanks!

    I don't know if I have the patience for high power to be honest! Although I am always down to try new things if they don't have a huge new gear requirement .

    The only rifle I have that might work is this thing. It is very much a work in progress, as it was the first AR I built when I moved. Wearing a 1-4x currently.

    IDPA could also be fun. I didn't think their were any matches in SW WA.

    I am really hoping to get into something involving steel, as that RING is just so addicting.

    IDPA first Saturday of the month at TCGC. Speed steel at TCGC first Sunday.
    Falling plate match at Clark Rifles 4th Sunday. If interested in Highpower
    try a 100 yard reduced course to start. Cascade League is geared towards
    new shooters. Equipment is loaned to new shooters. The service rifle match
    next weekend is full but March 25 Cascade League at DRRC is a good match for
    a beginner.;)

    Welcome.
    I got the 09TACO
    Old Man Emu and no lean

    Be sure to get onboard with this :
    4-7-18 Jones Creek Area Cleanup

    Do that and you will meet the folk, learn your local public shooting areas, win prizes, eat good food and help clean up.

    I got an 01 with a conservative lift. I don't remember the brand, kinda a Franken truck build. No lean, but I love how charismatic leaning Tacos are.

    I am actually already signed up for the 4-7 cleanup . I don't have a facebook, but Bill knows I am coming .One of the spots we are cleaning is my favorite. Should I empty out my truck for a dump run after? Or do we just bag it up?

    Smaller stuff gets bagged and hauled off that day.
    Bigger stuff (pallets, etc) gets hauled to the dumpster as well.
    Anyone can volunteer truck space and it's a short run to the dumpster.

    Roger that. I don't have fancy brass pickup tools, so want to at least be able to help with heavy lifting and the truck space.


    Thanks for the info!

    Thanks SealSniper! I thought the sport was clubbing seals, sniping them seems too easy?

    Thanks. That looks a little too far for me and my old truck though.
