For new people, this is a family orientated shooting ( & camping) event on BLM land in the Barstow area. I'll be editing posts below with additional information as I plagiarize it out of previous threads.

Calguns/CGSSA Zombie Shoot General Information.

This is a 100% family oriented event created by our members for our members, families and friends. It started out as a single day event, and has evolved into a camp and shoot event with much more than just shooting.

Step 1. Sign In.
Step 2. Grab your spot on the line.
Step 3. Claim your camping spot.

• All local and federal laws will be strictly followed
• All attendees must follow range commands and safety guidelines
• See range officers for more info before shooting at night
• Minors must be accompanied by a guardian at all times
• You must clean up all targets, trash, etc before you leave

Prohibited Items:
• No targets made from plastic, trash, glass or electronic equipment
• No wood with nails, screws or any metal objects in campfires
• No tannerite, explosives or fireworks of any kind
• No drugs of any kind
• No alcohol / intoxication on firing line
• No loaded firearms off firing line

What is OK to bring:

* EZ ups and Canopies, chairs, tables, ice chests, lots of water, drinks and ice, camping equipment, hats, sun screen.etc.

* Food for the Potluck ***we are going to need at least 5 propane BBQs.***

* Paper, biodegradable, organic and steel targets are OK.

* Bikes, Quads and all types of ATVs are welcome (please check you tag color).

* Generators and flood lights.

* LOTS OF Fire wood for the campfires, more food, drinks and popcorn for the zombie movie.

* Trash bags, rakes and containers to clean up the place after your shooting session.

Please let's be prepared to leave the shooting location clean and ready to be enjoyed by us and others in the near future. If you finish your shooting session please remove your targets and any material related to your shooting practice (trash, ammo boxes, spent cases,etc).
If you would like to "donate" your targets to a shooter next to you, the people receiving those targets will be responsible to remove them and clean the spot after the shoot.

Remember, preservation of our land is a must...!!!!!!

What is NOT OK to bring:

* Plastic, glass or any kind of electronic equipment to be used as targets.

* Wood with nails, screws or any kind of metal objects intended for the campfires.

* Tannerite or any kind of explosive targets and fireworks of any kind.

* No Drugs of any kind are allowed nor will be tolerated in our event.

* No steel core ammo will be allowed, as always, we will honor and respect our local and Federal ordinances ( do not confuse steel core with magnetic ammo).

* No Alcohol is permitted during our shooting sessions and BBQs, any kind of Alcoholic beverages must be kept at the camp ground and/or inside your vehicles at all times. This rule will be strictly enforced.

Useful tips and tricks

* If you're bringing a tent/canopy/shade/whatever, bring plenty of weights to hold it down as there are strong winds around noon to 3 PM every day. 2 years ago, several blew down range as well as a table or two blew over with guns going everywhere.

* Organize items list for those going to the store or coming up in the middle of the day or different days. Example would be ice, food or bug spray.

Location and directions:

The event site is located just 15 miles NE from Barstow. Final directions are posted a few days before the event, and taken down shortly after. It is a secret after all.

A 3 mile off road drive is needed in order to reach the campground and firing stations.

Motor Homes, toy haulers, trailers, tents, etc. are Welcome and invited.....Plenty of room for overnight campers.
