Default Question
not sure if this is the right spot to ask this, so I apologize and please move as needed...

In trips you guys set up, do you ever combine shooting into trips when you stop at a spot to camp?

Good question, we have never done that. I think it is because that we are so loaded up with camping gear that guns ammo and targets would take up too much space. Hand guns would probably be ok.

Ah, gotcha. I always save a little space for a rifle or two, plus ammo for them as well as for the piece I carry.

I'd be fine but make sure the kids and/or animals are contained prior to firing. My dogs would have to be in the car or they'd freak.

I can't recall any time where we went shooting at camp, but I wouldn't be against it. Generally everybody's too concerned with getting camp set up, eating, getting a fire going, and drinking.

George and Diane would look at me in a bad way if I brought a deer/elk rifle. There is always a place and time to practice certain skills.

I usually take a .22 to plink with, usually suppressed so it doesn't bother anyone.

Agreed... IMHO, Many forms of shooting practice arw not compatible with exploration/overlanding/camping type trips where, much of the daylight hours are taken up with the basics of setting up & tearing down camp in order to spend the bulk of the daylight hours exploring.

If an event were to be advertised, and organized as primarily a target shooting activity/venue, I believe that would be appealing to those with a different interest than exploring/overlanding.

I am not against target shooting activities, as I throuoghly enjoy doing so, I just don't believe that is the primary focus or interest of those in this ORP group, and to be frank, I'm also pretty darned picky about who I share shooting activites with, as there is a significantly higer risk associated with that activity, than overlanding and exploring via 4-wheel drive vehicles.

Cool. Was just curious. I grew up off-road exploring with my dad in the Owens Valley and we'd always stop and plink for an hour or 2 if we found a nice spot. Was just curious how other's felt here. though I too am picky about who I enjoy 2A activities. thanks for all the input folks. Looking forward to meeting a lot of you in the future.

Hey George and Diane,

If I recall correctly we did do target shooting on just one trip. It was on a lady's private ranch near Wikieup on the east side of the 93. I remember that the Duckface was there and so was Maddogjeeper. I shot the 'zombie' .223 gun that the Duckface brought and didn't like it. I also remember that a stick punctured Duckface's radiator.

Am I crazy or do you all remember this too?
