    Default Turkey Shoot!

    In case anyone wants to join me.

    Every year a group of us take off Thanksgiving morning and head to the desert. We spend the morning shooting while the gals prepare for the dinner. We're not being selfish. They want us out of the way!

    This year its a real small group. Anyone is welcome to join in the fun.

    Location is west of Lake Pleasant entrance (Lake Pleasant Rd), north on Christian Camp Rd.

    I'm bring steel targets as well as paper targets. It should be fun!

    I picked up these AR500 targets from Jeremy at TheTargetMan.com Just had a chance to clean up some slag off the full size silhouette and mounted some chains on them.


    Full size IPSC silhouette. 3/8" thick! Oh man, this is going to be fun!



    12", 10" and 8" AR500 plates. 3/8" thick! Should make a nice "tink" sound when struck.



    In case anyone wants to meet up, we should arrive there around 8:30am. Here's a LINK to google maps and the LON/LAT are: 33.83799, -112.33569

    I am going to pass James. I would like to but family plans take precedence.

    No plan B.

    It was a real blast. Glad you made it out on such short notice.

    Here's some of the limited photos/vids I took.

    My cousin running the MP5 with suppressor.

    We had a lot of targets out there. From left to right: 8" steel plate, full size steel silhouette, 10" steel plate, 2/3 size steel silhouette with reactive center and swing hostage, 6-pos dueling tree, and 3 IPSC paper target stands.


    The AR500 plates took the punishment of 22LR, 22Mag, 9mm, 40SW, 45ACP, .223rem, 7.62x39, and 12ga heavy bird loads. The shepherd hooks from home depot held up the weight of the plates like a champ!


    Not a bad looking splatter from the AR-15.


    My neighbor Keith at his first try of a 1911. He's now shopping for one! Gotta love the 1911 in 45acp.
