ASC night shoot

https://www.google.com/calendar/rend...rue&output=xml



This night shoot will be announced of the ASC Forums. Nick Drakulich is the leader of the rifle portion (shot either with NV or naked eye metallic), Nancy Donaldson will run the pistol/flashlight events


Night Shoot 50 & 100yd, check the message forums
Sat, June 30, 7pm – 8pm


Quote:
Start time will be 2000 hrs (8:00 pm) on Saturday, June 30. There will be a check-in process, confirmation of appropriate equipment, and a safety briefing. Details may be refined up until shoot night, so make sure you are there on time for any updates or you will not be allowed to shoot. Observers are welcome, but must stay a safe distance behind the firing line and must have green or yellow glo sticks or filtered light to wear. (No red or white light.)

Reminder: Anyone who is known to have ingested alcohol in the hours before the shoot will not be allowed to participate. RSO decision is final.

A few lessons learned from the April and May shoots:
-Scopes and gear shake loose. Tighten everything before it gets dark. Bring a red filter light to use at the firing line in case you need to search for something that you have dropped. Make firearm safe before looking for, adjusting or replacing parts and accessories.
-Bring chamber flags or use a second glo stick as a chamber flag.
-If you have a white gun light instead of a night vision scope you may be asked to shoot a separate relay so as not to ruin others’ night vision.
-Changing positions from prone, standing with sticks, shooting from bench, etc. are all permitted. However, firearms must be made safe (open and empty w/CBD) and laid down before changing from one position to another and then re-acquiring the firearm.
-Expect that RSO’s will walk behind the line continuously, with red lights, to check for safety issues and illuminate around benches. This is not negotiable; no one will be exempt from having an RSO with red filter light on or around their position.

Shooters must have appropriate shooting/optics equipment to acquire and hit targets in low light, and yellow or green glo stick or similar illumination to wear so that they can be seen when going up and down range. Red lights will be only for Range Safety designators at or behind the firing line. Do not wear white lights that will affect night vision.

Participants may shoot either pistol or rifle or both.

No tracers!

Two stages will be set up in advance of shooting.
--One range for pistol with the firing line at less than 15yd distance. Only paper or balloon targets allowed.
--One for rifle at the 100 yd range with preset steel targets courtesy of the Practical Rifle team. (Shooters: Do not bring your own steel or reactives unless you check with Nick ahead of time and he says ok.)

Nick Drakulich will run the rifle stage (Rifle Boss.)
Doc Adelman will CSRO and run the pistol stage with me.
Anyone else who wants to help please show up at the range around 1930 (7:30 pm)

Procedure
Shooters report to a check-in station to sign in, confirm shooter has glo stick, record time in, and assign a bench. Each participant is assigned whether he is shooter or spotter for first shoot. Spotter role is to: signal to confirm that shooter has returned from downrange, confirm "safe" and assist shooter as needed.

Each bench is issued one red glo stick that will remain at the bench and be used for signalling by spotter. Shooters identify whether they are shooting pistol, rifle, or both. If rifle, check in also at rifle stage.

Shooters gather around for updates to safety or shooting procedures.

If there are enough shooters, two participants are assigned to each bench or position. One is the shooter, one is a spotter. Everybody sets up gear at assigned benches, firearms remain cased until instruction given to take them out. Under RSO supervision in advance of shooting, instruction will be given to open pistol bags and remove magazines so as to isolate them for loading while range is cold.

RSO’s with red filter lights and red glo sticks close the range for target posting. Red 360° LED strobes will mark the range as closed. Shooter goes down to post targets.

1. Spotter loudly announces “ready” when his respective shooter has returned to the bench, and raises the RED bench glo stick to signal ready.
2. RSOs scan the range and walk down behind the line, confirming that each bench has two persons stationed.
3. CRSO/Rifle Stage Boss announces that range is hot. Instructs shooters to open cases, load and fire at will.
4. Shooter shoots for ten minutes. All firearms placed on benches or ground will be made safe when not actively being fired.
5. CRSO/Rifle Boss calls ceasefire. Instructs shooters to make all firearms safe, "show safe" to Spotter, insert chamber flag, return them to cases. Spotter observes and raises red glo stick to denote “clear.”
6. If all clear, CRSO/Rifle Boss announces closed range and posts red strobes. Shooter goes down to check targets, spotter posts his targets, all return behind firing line.
7. Spotter and shooter trade positions at each bench.
8. RSO’s turn off red strobes and announces “Range is Hot” to indicate range is open.
Repeat 1-8

CRSO calls halt at end of shoot. All firearms are made safe and cased. All shooters check-out before departing.

is this for members only? can someone get me in as a guest?!

I have 2 rifles that I set up with red killlights for upcoming hog hunting and this would be PERFECT opportunity to test this equipment, and I would not mind running my HD handgun with my TLR light for practice!

What do you do on a night shoot without tracers or flashlights?
