Woke up to the smell of smoke yesterday....

Hopped outside to see what I could see- looked north about an hour away and could see a brushfire starting up in the hills. Pretty common sight in this area this time of year.

Pop on the tube and grab a cup of joe...veiwing the ground from the chopper-cam I notice a very familiar road, then the canyon, then.......my favorite outdoor range surrounded by flames.

It was horryfiing.

The blaze started about 2:00 a/m...they suspect arson. The news crews never failed to mention at least every 3 mins 'the blaze first started by a gun range'.....arse-hats. They also failed to mention the place is a ghost-town after 5:00 p/m. It was probably arson and if it started at/near the range at 2:00 a/m, it would be charred wreckage by 7:00 a/m, not surounded by fire. The media here is truly clue-less.

This Range is an icon for me as well as a respite from the total insanity of L.A.
For me it's an island of normalcy, decency and discipline...and mutal respect among peers. It's sort of a 'temple' for me out here during the week- I never see a squid here during that time, just regular-Joe's sighting in, chrony'ing, testing a new build or just plain enjoying the facility and the Sport.

I may or may not be able to do some sighting-in up there Friday. But that is not really a factor right now, my thoughts are with Paula and Kevin right now....I called but can't get through, I hope they are ok and so is the Range- it's an owner-opperator type of deal and the employees sacrafice a lot to keep it and the sport they love so much alive in the sea of adversity that is So. Cal.

I hope the rats get caught and get a hemp neck-tie for their trouble.

Viva Angeles Ranges.

Whew...Not to be distasteful about it, but I was afraid in might be the range at Pyro in Ventura County. I know the rancher that owns the Pyro rifle and pistol range there...

If it was arson I too, hope they get caught and hang high...

I hope your friends are alright, and if it was arson I hope they get them.

As the others all said Stove....hope your mates are all ok and they haven't lost anything.

Bastard young fellas are usually to blame for fires like that...more often than not torching a stolen car.

Hope they get 'em, and when they do they should be shot with a ball of their own crap...at high velocity!!!

Cheers, Vince

Thanks gang-

Seems a homless person got burned to death in the area. That makes it murder, if it was arson.

And Vince- me thinks you know about range fires...you all have had some Woppers!

These fires get started for a myriad of reasons. Bum camps, partyers, downed lines from winds and the ubiquitous ciggy butt out the window.

Then there's the nut cases that wait for prime conditions and torch the joint. All of a sudden like you'll see 3-4 fires start up at once 50-100 miles apart.

People are sick out here. And on a regular, seasonal basis.

I'm not in danger.

But it made me think, what am I going to grab first if the sheet hits the fan?

I took stock of how complacent I've gotten and need to reorg some things pronto.

Rucksack with ammo, water, pemmican and Clif bars. (not a wetsuit, sunscreen, surfwax Laughing )
Make sure the fuel cans are full.
So are the water jugs.

Important Papers? Screw that- I'm grabbin' my pack, the 12ga, the .44, and my CR250. What could be more important than firearms and a XC two-wheeler when IT is comin'?

Barrraaaaaap! C-ya!.... Razz

Alllllll right!

Aint been able to reach Kevin or Paula- phone lines got torched, but, they displayed this message on their web site:

The ranges are open for business.
Phone service will not be restored unitl 10-22-08

continue to web page

Boy am I STOKED.
Can finally do some 50yd zeroing and some long range fun-shooting w/ the cartoon-gun Friday.

No offical word on the cause...may have been auto-related from what the news says....I think there was a match off site atta private range that weekend and I'm praying it wasn't started by one of ours in error...if it indeed started at 2: 00 a/m, I doubt it soo.....

This is a huge relief and I cannot wait to go see them.

Woohoo! Very Happy
