Northeast Meet and Greet

I know there are some of us on here from the Northeast. Anyone feel like getting together once the weather turns for the better? I'm in central NJ but would be more than willing to drive a bit, I'd say anything within six hours would be doable. I would host it myself but NJ doesn't like apartment dwellers with evil black assault guns shooting out their window

As far as timing I'm open to just about anything while recovering from getting my shoulder scoped, but with the amount of snow on the ground it might not even be feasible until April/May. Anybody have any thoughts on the matter?

If anyone is a member at Range 14 down at Ft. Dix, that might be a cool place to have it. I may have a membership myself by that point anyway. Nice facility with a 200-yard range but everything would have to be NJ legal

I'd be up for driving a bit as well if someone's got a better place.

I'm Southern VT....Our range here sucks, but there is one thats in Keene NH thats pretty nice.

The problem is, VT, NH and ME are pretty free as far as guns go, you can bring most anything here to shoot. Inbetween we have MA,CT,NY,NJ where you really cant bring any guns into the state unless you are passing through (yes, there are grey areas....). That makes it tough for a "middle ground" meeting place.

I'm in. Can't host because "NY is no place for conservatives." But I'd be up for traveling to wherever we decide to meet.

Holy crap, the hardest part of a get together is figuring out what state is free enough to do so? Drive your happy asses over here to Northern Michigan and It'll be a lot easier. Just bring a camper or monies for a hotel.

PA is probably the best that's centrally located and not fascist. I don't want to host, but would try to attend.

and leave your Short Barreled rifles at home. So, really, Michigan isnt the no-brainer you claim it is.

There is legislation that is hopefully to pass soon to make SBRs legal in Michigan. Regardless, MI is not really a northeast state.

PA definitely makes geographical and political sense. The question is do we have someone with property where shooting would be safe/legal

The problem will be finding a place you can shoot out any real distance. In PA, the land of hills, you need to find a farm.

100-200yds would be more than enough... Just the ability to have WW3 on your property and have the neighbors not call the cops is priority number 1.

If you've ever been to a big group shoot, it's more just people throwing lead into dirt than anything else.

Whereabouts is your family's farm John? Would you need us to bring anything?

That would be ideal. You're east of me, which may suit people better as well.

I'd drive an hour or two for something (I'm in Lakes Region NH). I don't have anything that awesome to shoot, but trigger time is trigger time. My friends do have some neat toys though.

This sounds like an awesome spot. Unfortunately for me up in NH, Wilkes Barre is almost 5 and a half hours. Might limit my ability to participate.

Unfortunately for you fags in NH, there probably aren't enough members to justify moving it closer. And closer would have to be the fascist state of NY, which might as well be a BB gun shoot meet and greet. (assuming BB guns are still legal there)

I see there is a direct flight from my home town to Wilkes-Barre, but it's pretty spendy. I guess I need to check my available miles. That would be pretty cool.

I'm in for something in PA... I won't go to NJ, NY, CT, MD or Mass due to firearms laws, but I am definitely up for a wheeling and shooting get together. I can bring plenty of guns.
