Rumpshot's Revenge 2012

Postby Rumpshot » Tue Apr 03, 2012 2:45 pm

Time to set the date for RR 2012. Halloween is in the middle of the week. Last weekend in Oct or first weekend in Nov. Does anyone have a specific preference?

There is a local bullet caster that owns a .50 BMG, and a .30 cal. Both mil-spec full auto. He is interested if we are not the same weekend as the Big Sandy shoot.

I would like to have an actual .45-70 match or two. I was thinking our 265 yd gong off-hand, iron sights for one; and something a bit further, rested, any sights. $5.00 entry, winner take all. I believe Flintlock Tom, AzMark, and myself would all be interested. Bring a .45-70 or borrow one and join in the fun.

Count me in, but I can't make it the last week-end in October: my son's birthday.

.45-70 match? Check!
$5 entry fee? Whoa!! I had no idea I was in the presence of "High Rollers"!! LOL!

I'll bring a couple .45-70s and enough ammo to share if anyone else would like to participate.

Gotta start planning right now! We want to be there the same time as Flintlock Tom, but have you noticed that the first weekend in November comes just before Election Day? We'll need to do absentee ballots; we couldn't get back to MO in time to vote in person. In This. Very. Important. Election!

How about a percussion revolver match?

*IF* things go the way we hope (unless my mom's heath radically deteriorates), I'm looking to fix our RV with some extra funds from my 401(k) - (it NEEDS 7 new tires, smog check, generator tune-up, engine maint, refrigerator repair/replacement, water heater repair/replacement, and some cosmetic repairs), but that's FAR cheaper than trying to get a newer RV for my sun-sensitive wife, who REALLY wants to go this year and see everyone again (especially Rumpshot and his wonderful wife).

I miss heading out and shooting with the rest of you folks, as well as the meeting and greeting of forum members, and getting ready for Rumpshot's only helps us get ready for other trips during the year and subsequent trips afterwards.

Besides, I'd REALLY like to shoot a .45-70, and/or a "Quigley Down Under" gun, and see how it feels (ESPECIALLY IF TANNERITE IS INVOLVED).

So, we're HOPING to make it to this year's RUMPSHOT'S REVENGE (finances willing)!!! BOTH of us are simply ITCHING to get on the road, and RR is a GREAT motivator to help get my wife get enthused about going!!

Dino suggests absentee ballots. I have mine ordered.

Tom can't be there on Oct 26-29.

Dino and Little Sister sound like they want to be there. 308Mike and his lovely bride want to make the trip.

.45-70 matches are in the works. A request for a percussion revolver match.

A NEW gunshop in Chino Valley owned and operated by a young couple from Wyoming.

Let's get this set for Nov 2, 3, & 4,2012.

Halloween pumpkins should be available for sacrifice. Need to make plans for a Tannerite purchase. A trip to the scrap steel yard is in order to acquire more clanger steel. Gonna need some younger legs to hike clangers out further along the hill and further up the hill. Maybe build a brass catcher.

Good News. The Big Sandy Shoot is the weekend before RR 2012!

That means that we are not competing head-to-head with the Full Auto Shoot in Arizona.

How the area for camping at the site? Fairly level for the RV? How about the drive into the site?

Level is no problem. The drive in is rough, but I have had my 26' UHaul box truck up to the site. John drives a car that should only be driven on pavement into the site. Go slow, plot the tree branches and you should not have a problem.

Okay, talked with Home Six and she says we're not going to Australia until after the new year. She's ready to come up for the festivities. Y'all want the 20 pound loose Tannerite or the half pound charges? And does anyone have an old car they don't want? Ice chests are for wusses. :lol:

Going to be an exciting three weeks for us. Oct 21-22, we'll be at Shakespeare Ghost Town; the next weekend we're going to be in Mesilla, New Mexico doing Civil War stuff. Then we've got RR.

Loose is good. I have containers. A car on the National Forest would not go over well at all. Glad you are rescheduling the Oz trip. It is worth taking.

Acquired two new pieces of steel yesterday. 2'X2' square of 3/8" diamond plate and a ~20" circle of 5/8" plate. About 140 pounds worth of steel!

These will need transport UP the hill. By someone who has NOT had a heart attack in the last 5 years. Youth is good! :lol:

I will get both drilled for mounting.

I think the diamond plate will be easy enough to pierce with rifle fire. The round should be a bit harder.

Thinking of using the diamond plate for the .45-70 competition. Round nosed, lead slugs should make it ring without doing too much damage. Our current long range target is about 265 yards out. I hope the new .45-70 range will be further....

The date is approaching, who is coming?

I'm bringing at least 1 and maybe up to 5 people depending on schedules etc. I'll know better as things firm up.

I have about 3 pounds of Tannerite left, but that is clearly not enough.

Little Sister and I have been planning for this since 2011. I'll be bringing some of the same guns as last time, and the Rogers&Spencer for the revolver match. Our accommodations will be the same as last time; close to the book store. We'll try to arrive on 1 November to help set things up.

I am definitely coming and "Flintlock Virginia" is making noises like she may come along, too.

I would like to provide some tannerite targets as well, but, it is the consensus of the CA gun community that the stuff is bordering on illegal here. Could I order some targets and have them delivered to your house in Chino Valley, or maybe the book store?

Until it's mixed, or there's specific laws prohibiting those specific chemicals, it's kinda' like possessing the items to make a dry-ice bomb (or vinegar & baking soda with an empty two-liter bottle) and not combining them. Even when Tannerite is mixed in the proper ratios, it's still not explosive unless hit by a high-velocity object.

Yes, I agree, but the legal brains over on CalGuns.net make a pretty good argument for not touching the stuff.
There are lots of gun stores and vendors at gun shows that sell the stuff in California, but, in CA, paranoia is sometimes the safest path.

We are really looking forward to being there and also, to meeting some of the others I only get to read about.

It would be really nice to see "Flintlock Virginia" as well. I really hope she comes too.

As to the match last time, that wind must have been pretty selective...... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Tom, you have the bookstore address and we will accept delivery there.

Little Sister looking forward to you and your brother too.

Fiscally things have gotten better for us. The bookstore too. But I believe I will make a Tannerite acquisition soon. Planning on a bulk buy and use my own containers.

John Looking forward to seeing you up too. There are a few Arizona folks that don't make the trip. Would be good to see you too.

John and anyone else that has considered the Tea Pot Inn, B&B, they have closed up shop.

Yogi, Arizona, about 35 miles north of Prescott in the Prescott National Forest.

All targets are set across a small wash and up the side of the canyon wall.

Rumor has it that Tannerite is inbound for RR 2012.

I visited with Mo and her husband Jay in Boise on Thursday. They are contemplating joining us this year. The whole event is looking better and better all the time.

Yay, Tannerite! Just laid in a new box of .451 round balls and a couple cans of fresh caps. Searching my old storage turned up some forty-year-old Italian caps and two cans of FFG.

Just need a new wedge-screw for the old 1860 .44,.....

Thanks! I was just thinking about taking the screw from the 1851, but it's Uberti and the 1860 was made in Belgium. I'll bring both the .44s along with one of the flinters.

Lately, Sue has been making fabulous cookies; chocolate-chip-and-walnut, and chocolate-chip or raisin oatmeal cookies. I'll see if we can bring some along and not eat them all on the way!

I think they moved a while ago. IIRC the thread about the tree limb hitting their house a year or two ago happened as they were getting ready to close on the house in VA and make the move to ID.
...even before I read MHI, my response to seeing a poster for the stars of the latest Twilight movies was "I see 2 targets and a collaborator".

They moved about a year and a half ago. Still getting settled, I think.

Well, rats!
Virginia found out last night that she has a performance on Nov. 3rd, so she will not be coming. She's sincerely bummed.
That also means that I'll be camping at the site.

Two boxes with return address from Tannerite are on hand.

I just placed an order for a 20 pound bulk order.

Looking for a rough head count. Think I know most of who will attend this year, but not sure about a couple of you folks.

Mo has indicated she and Jay probably won't be here. :cry:

308Mike, what is your status looking like?

BE603 any chance this year?

Workin, you have been pretty quiet of late, any hopes?

Yogi, Arizona is really pretty in the fall.

Got a B&B right here in Paulden that I have linked to, should be a nice place to stay if you are so inclined. The Teapot Inn, Chris and Mel stayed there one year, has gone out of business. Coupla motels in Chino Valley. Free camping on the National Forest and room to park RV's in my yard.

Need to visit a couple of folks locally tomorrow to see about the Class 3 situation.

Lots of Tannerite on hand or enroute.

New steel targets.

Lots of clay pigeons.

4 New boxes of 16 ga. shotgun shells acquired this week.

Setup to start on 2 Nov. Early arrivals welcome, even earlier than the 2nd. :D

I thought the All you can Eat fish dinners had stopped, but need to check, I have been told they are still going on, on Friday evenings.

Firming up head count. Me + 1 99% definite. +2 more 90% pretty firm.

Looking like arriving Friday evening, subject to change - may be Sat AM.

Just checked with Home6. We're gonna marathon drive from El Paso Thursday. Rudy can help Rumpshot's Home6 with stuff Friday. We'll stick around until Sunday afternoon, then head back to Tucson, then home on Monday. Looking to bring a target base and frame for paper targets. Probably fewer guns and ammo this year. Also will probably bring some books for the bookstore.

Definitely bringing the M1917, probably the .30 carbine automag, the 20 gauge, couple more pistols and couple more rifles.

We're still not in good enough financial shape to replace all the tires on the RV (which are rotting after being on the rig for more than 10 years). Doing so would require the equivalent of a mortgage payment and then some (to replace all seven (7) tires, one being the spare - but if we get eight tires we can get ONE tire for free!). I wish we could afford to do everything to allow us to attend RR, for more reasons than you could imagine.

Right now, I'm working a part-time job doing photography (NO WEDDINGS), and it's helping to pay the bills, but for now it feels like I've been resurrected after being unemployed for OVER THREE YEARS. Even working part time is a HUGE morale boost!!

I'm still looking at what we can do to get to RR (and BOTH of us want to go this time, my wife misses Dana and Cathy and everyone else), but for the time being we're still watching our pennies and making daily expense priorities, as well as raiding our 401(k)'s to keep the house. Winning the lottery would be a blessing, and much of our money would be used to help others (which I'd REALLY LOVE to do), but there's that little thing of winning the lottery first before we could designate the money for them. ;) ;) :roll: :roll: :roll:

Little Sister and I are still on! We've done the maintenance on our transcontinental vehicle and are lining up our finances. Just today, I found another Moisin-Nagant M91/30 in re-arsenaled condition so that we can compete with similar rifles.

We also have reservations at the same Chino Valley motel as last year.

Well, it appears I may have a work opportunity which coincides with RR, even though it's temporary work, it will likely allow me to head out to the range and get some shooting in with Y'ALL!!

If this is gonna' work, I need to dig through my stuff and find what I want to take and limit it to only what I can bring in my Honda Civic. So far, my wife is agreeable and I still need to talk to my mom and her care-taker (since she's currently going through Chemo, and since I told her she wasn't going to be the ONLY one of our family in public with a hairless head - "Chrome Dome" - I told her I'd also shave my head to be like her, but I want NOTHING to do with the nausea and vomiting/diarrhea that also goes along with the Chemo treatments).

So, if you see me there, I'll likely be sporting a "Chrome Dome" for my mom. As I have also started cleaning pools to make money, I need to let a few folks know I might not be around for a few days (but since the water is now getting colder, they can go longer between cleanings). I'm working on doing what I can to make arrangements to attend (WITH MY CAMERA), and if so, I hope to get some GREAT shots of the participants of RR 2012!!

I can't say right now that I'm going to be there, but at this point it's better than a 50/50 bet, and looking better all the time. We can't afford to bring the RV (with new tires all around, and vehicle registration since it hasn't been on the road in 2+ years - and the fridge is broken [but ice blocks & a cooler can handle that], and my wife is telling me I need to spend some time away from taking care of her and my mom), so the more WE (my wife and I) discuss it, the more likely it looks I'll probably be attending (WOO HOO!!!!), even if it's without the love of my life :cry: .

She'd like to go, but is trying to start up her own business. I want to help but can't be in two/three places at one time. I'll also need to limit the amount of guns and ammo I can bring in my car. Regardless, I'm REALLY leaning towards going unless my mom is having a major procedure, but I also know she likes to see me getting out and shooting, even if she can't be there (I've taken her shooting MANY times), so, I'm working on it (my mom also has a police problem with the next door neighbors which I'm working on).

At this point, it's looking quite likely I'll be there for RR 2012!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :D :D :D :D

BUT DON'T FORGET TO VOTE SOON AFTERWARDS!!!!

Getting closer.

Looking at the weather forecast and watching the nighttime temps, it will be cool. I think it was 27 this morning and forecast to be about the same on Friday night, then warmer Sat and Sun next week. Daytime temps in high 60's - low 70's. Sunny, no precipitation. Come prepared.

Friday will be setup day. I have a handful of targets. I don't have the silhouette targets yet. Not sure if I will get them or not. I do have a couple of new steel targets that are heavier and need to be humped up the hill.

The place we ate dinner on Friday night last year is closed. Kathi proposed we go to Pizza Hut. They are half-way between the book store and the motel.

Making final preps for the trip. Our four-legged family members will be in the kennel on Tuesday and we will follow the same travel plan as last year. We should be able to maintain comms during the trip using Little Sister's lap-top and our mobile modem.

One more day and a wake-up!

I'll be hitting the road on Thursday afternoon and expect to get there early Friday.
I'm really looking forward to this. This shooting week-end will cap off a very busy and expensive month.

I had to sell 4 guns for supplemental income, but ended up buying 3 other guns!?
Probably going to have to sell a few more guns before Christmas.

Well the latest look at Weather Underground holds for clear skies, daytime temps in the mid-70's and night time lows between 25-32. Should be great weather for shooting.

Got a bunch of AZ folks that should attend that have not checked in...

Kommander, AZMark for two. I know there are more folks lurking.

I talked to Kommandr recently and he said he couldn't get time off from work.

Update for me.. one of the guests has just come down with a flu and woke up with no voice this morning. Shes probably not coming, but insisting her fiance still come with. On the possible upside, it was her work schedule preventing us leaving friday.. so we might be there friday afternoon/evening.

I'm here now (helping him with chores needed to be done around the house prior to RR since I'm already here), and he's already gone to bed. He figured you'd probably meet at the bookstore, but guessed it'd be around 0900 or thereabouts. He'll check the postings and email after he gets up (around 0530 or so), and probably tell you 0830 is okay. But depending on what else is going on, he might say 0900 (9:00 AM) would be better (we still need to pull the signs and put them in the trailer, post them, etc., etc.). He's a morning person, I'm not (at least until I've had my coffee).

Does he have your number if he needs to/wants to call you?

Outside, it's been getting pretty cold in the mornings (in the mid 20's), so for those of you looking to camp out, PLEASE plan accordingly. When the sun comes up, it warms things up nicely, but the air is still pretty cold. Had a semi-nice sunset tonight. Don't let the cropping fool you, it was nice, but was only a very slim portion of the sky (with the clouds, I thought it was going to be better than it was).

Perhaps we'll get better ones in the next few nights! I hope you brought your NOR shirts! :P :P

The Mrs. will be at the store about 9 to open up.

I need to stick close to the house til the "blue" room shows up. Will be getting the signs out and sorting out targets.

By all means stop by the store and visit before you make the run out to the house.

So glad to make contact; will be at the store at 9:00. We have books to drop off. Have not heard from Flintlock Tom yet. Numbers for him are not working.

Sent contact number via email to Rumpshot. See you today.

For those heading out this way, just follow the signs:

IMG_5357_RR_Sign_x1000.jpg


After a while, you;ll see the camp through the trees:

IMG_5380_RR_Camp1_x1000.jpg


When you walk up to the camp, you might see something like this:

IMG_5354_RR_Camp2_x1000.jpg


And for those of you looking to get into the .45-70 competition, Flintlock Tom broke out his beautiful new High Wall:

IMG_5330_Tom's_New_45-70_High-Wall_x1000.jpg


We picked up some paint to repaint the metal targets to help identify the ones to be shot only by .22's and handgun rounds. A couple of the large softer targets are starting to look like Swiss Cheese! Flintlock Tom is tent camping at the range/camp, and we told him it's going to get pretty chilly - possibly down in the 20's!! We hope all that food from Pizza Hut this evening helps keep him warm!! :D :D ;)

Dinochrome and Little Sister are here as well. We hope to see some many more of you tomorrow!!

The first day is written in the history books.

Ten people at dinner last nite. Two of which were new folks. :D We even had Birthday Cake for Dinochrome. There were 5 NoR shirts at dinner. Kim would be proud.

At the range we had 12 or 13 shooters and 1 visitor.

New targets are holding up well. 1" steel round at about 60-65 yards is heavily pocked, but not punctured. 1/2" diamond plate at 300 yard has lots of dimples and only a couple of holes in it. The 265 yard steel plate is also heavily dimpled with quite a few holes in it. It has been left in place and someone else is taking advantage of it, which is okay by me.

The .45-70 challenge took place mid-afternoon. There were 4 competitors and the winner was using a borrowed Buffalo Classic and borrowed ammunition. Two Buffalo Classics, a Sharps and a Highwall were the competition guns. JohnOC was the big winner.

The road into the site has seen some maintenance and is not nearly as rough as it has been.

The weather was absolutely perfect. Very light to no breeze all day yesterday.

I'm starting to think we may have to do this again.

I had my camera but did not get any pictures at the range with it. I did get a little video on my Tab 2. Will try to get that posted later today. Do have a few photo's from Saturday night dinner too.

308Mike has a big pile of photos to post.

Next year will be the same weekend. 2 & 3 November, 2013.

I'll get around to resizing and posting some pics when I get some time after getting home. My mom isn't doing so well and I just had an abscessed tooth extracted (it was making contact with the lower tooth on about 20% of the surface) this morning. They gave me nitrous oxide (first time I'd ever been exposed to it - but I didn't really need it as long as I had enough Novocaine), and the tooth came out a LOT easier than they expected because of the infection - which I had REALLY knocked down by taking heavy does of antibiotics prior to my appointment (while I was out of state). This explains why it felt like my tooth pain was moving from my lower jaw to my upper jaw and back again - it was all referred pain and why it went down when I took the antibiotics and Ibuprofen.

I want to thank Rumpshot for, ONCE AGAIN, putting on ANOTHER great shooting experience, including the THREE POUND Tannerite milk bottle Rumpshot made. When it exploded, the sound echoed up and down the canyon, reverberating back and forth off the walls of the canyon. IT WAS AWESOME!!!

Also, we had some pumpkins which we set on Tannerite containers, and they made GREAT explosive targets (note the chunks of airborne pumpkin)!!

The exploding target on the 3/4" steel plate burned like a magnesium flare when it was hit. I'm glad we didn't start any fires!

We had a great time with good friends, met some new friends, and made it home safe.

Now it's time to start planning for RR-2013.

That particular target was a "True Shot" target, also frequently referred to as a "Sure Shot" target. Here's the photo I shot of the target while it was in "FLARE MODE":
