What: A firearms shooting get-together
When: TBA: Defcon 10 (Saturday, August 3rd - 8AM)
NOTE: DO NOT LOAD ANY FIREARMS UNTIL EVERYONE HAS MADE IT TO THE SHOOTING LOCATION, AND ALWAYS KEEP THE MUZZLE IN A SAFE DIRECTION. I.E STRAIGHT UP OR STRAIGHT DOWN. OR DIRECTLY DOWNRANGE.
Failure to follow these rules will result in you being removed from the shooting location. These are not hard rules to follow, and these rules should never be broken any other place you've ever shot, so there's nothing new here.
Who: Gun totin' DefCon attendees. ( any FBI folks want to come? ). And the media is always welcome to report a positive gun story.
Why: Why not? It'll be fun as long as no one dehydrates, or goes crazy and shoots someone.
The Plan: We will meet outside at the main entrance of the hotel from 7:45-8:00a.m. Be sure to have all your guns, supplies, ammo, etc. ready to go. Once everybody is there we will leave for the shooting location. If you will be driving, and wouldn't mind giving DC-shoot people rides, please let Me know. - so we have a good idea of how the caravan might work. - you don't have to drive there with "us", but it should be fun, or at least suck less then a normal commute.
What to bring: Legal firearms, ammo, eye and ear protection (see note @ bottom of page), water, sunblock, targets that will decompose, or that you will take with you, trashbags (might be provided for you), cash if you need to shoot someone else's ammo/whatever (that's between you and them).
What not to bring: Illegal/unsafe firearms or ammo, alcohol/drugs, anything that you aren't prepared to take with you when you leave.
NOTE: If you have something you want to bring but aren't sure if it will be allowed, play it safe and don't bring it, or at least ask Me before bringing it along..

I won't have any firearms in NV. Can I still shoot?
No. The Official Defcon Shoot is primarily intended for people that will have firearms with them in NV. If a bunch of non-gun folks show up, I don't know that they would be able to shoot anyone else's gun, or that there would be enough eye and ear protection for everyone. Try to make your own arrangements for equipment before the shoot. If you really want to go and you don't have a firearm, maybe you want to find a firearm owning friend Friday night. Note: If you are under 18 years old you are most likely SOL.
What are the range rules?
Why should I secure my firearms?
Imagine the headlines... "A hacker's car full of firearms stolen"... (don't misplace a van full of Class III weapons like some folks do). You may want to check if your hotel will keep your firearms in their safe when you aren't out shooting.
Who do I talk to about going?
Please RSVP if you will probably go.

Recommended - quality over the ears style muffs - (with earplugs is even better) - If you have a spare pair or two of "ears", please bring them. - If you have none, you can still come, someone might be able to loan you good ear protection... If worse comes to worse, you can reimburse someone for in the ear style plugs ($1.00). The in the ear plugs do not protect your ears as well as over the ear protection - moderate your shooting if that's all you have.
