Shooting at Poco: Handguns and semi-auto rifles

We'll be doing the second of 2013's Port Coquitlam shooting meetups March 23rd, with more to follow later in the spring.

Beginners are welcome, as always!

Anyone who wants to join us who HAS a firearms licence, please DO sign up, if you're willing to bring guns and supervise some newcomers - please note in your RSVP if you have a licence, are bringing firearms, and are coming to help out. I will adjust the total available spots and waitlist depending on how many people we have available to provide guns and supervise.

The Port Coquitlam gun range is located at 5000 Harper Road in Coquitlam. Cost is $20 per person for the day payable to the gun club by debit or cash, plus bring some cash for ammunition, or better yet, bring some ammo with you. I'll bring lots of .22 ($10 for as much as you want to shoot; I was providing this free, but it was getting expensive!!), 9mm ($20 for 50rds), 7.62X39mm ($10 for 20rds), and 5.56X45mm ($10 for 20 rds) for anyone who wants to buy some, and will bring a variety of semi-automatic rifles and handguns for people to try.

Range opens to the public at 11. I can supervise a maximum of three people at a time, with people taking turns, so unless other people with licences sign up, the first six without firearm licences to sign up will have spots, while anyone else RSVPing will be waitlisted.

I'm going to do to do this in two groups, one at 11 (the range opens to the public at 11:00 since daylight savings time took effect), the second group at 1PM. When you RSVP, please comment in your RSVP which time slot you prefer, 11 or 1, and I will try to accomodate.

If you want to bring a guest, please have them join the group and RSVP.

If you have to cancel, please do so no later than the evening of the Thursday before, so I can add any waitlisted people. I'll update the groups below as people sign up:

Has licence and bringing guns - Roger, Yehen, Gabriel, Luca

11:00 - Raheel, Nicole, Amy, Andrew, Colin, Shawna

1:00 -  Izzy, Jo, Jarrett, Ben, Brenna, Murugan Sam

Last details - bring eye protection (glasses or sunglasses are adequate), ear plugs, and something to shoot at. I suggest printing off some targets or, failing that, bring money to buy some at the gun club - some good printable targets are available at the following:

Finally, people with a history of 'no-shows' or last-minute cancellations in this group may be moved to the waitlist or bounced without warning in favor of people who have reliably showed up or not had an opportunity to shoot thus far.

* At the request of some of my volunteer assistants, when moving people from the waitlist to 'attending'. I will try to balance the group between male and female members - the concensus is that it's more fun for everyone that way :)

      I can't get mine to upload off my phone... I'll try again later. Got a couple of good shots of you with the G36

  • Gabriel

    Thanks Roger for organizing the meetup. I had a blast trying out my new handguns with the group.

    March 23, 2013

  • ROGER E (aka "Minion R.

    Hope those of you who showed up had a great time, and I'm looking forward to seeing some photos :) I apologize for the fact that the optic on the Ruger handgun wasn't working - I'll make sure it has a fresh battery next time! Those who were no-shows (Ben, Jarrett, Raheel, Izzy, Murugan Sam and Amy): you are not welcome to RSVP for future meetups I host. I debated removing you from the group, but I decided that was a bit excessive.

    March 23, 2013

    • ROGER E (aka "Minion R.

      And thanks again to Yehen, Gabriel and Luca for helping out - it was really appreciated :)

    No licence. First timer. Can I bring a +1 ? Btw my +1 has a licence and her own guns

    March 20, 2013

    • ROGER E (aka "Minion R.

      Michael, you're going to be waitlisted, guaranteed. However, if you and your friend want to just meet us there, you can shoot with her, and if she's willing to assist Meetup members and maybe let them try her guns, we can try to get you some trigger time on the meetup member guns as a quid pro quo :)

  • ROGER E (aka "Minion R.

    Hi, all, I was just informed that the range opens to the public at 11:00 since daylight savings time took effect. So, the time for the morning group has been changed to 11AM. My apologies in advance for any inconvenience!

    • ROGER E (aka "Minion R.

      Hey, Shawna, as it says in the meetup description, "If anyone wants to swap times with one another, go ahead, just let me know, so I know who I'm meeting with each group". If you can manage to swap with another member, let me know, and I'll update the list.
