To all attendees:

An email will also be sent out, but this is easier for a quick message. Even though it was not specifically stated on the itinerary, you can plan on having a fair amount of time (on each day, likely) to shoot each others’ pistols/rifles/PCCs. There is no doubt everyone will be bringing at least one gun someone else wants to try.

So feel free to bring along whatever you like but be prepared to share and share alike

(Empty) Range Pics

Went down to the range we will be utilizing for our weekend and had one of my RSOs snap some pics.

First pic is basic view of the backstop and where we will be doing (most) of the shooting from. As you can see, nice and wide open

Second pic is taken from about the 50 yard line.

Third pic is from about the 150 yard line. The closest of the rubber "seats" to the picture is about 120 yards to the backstop. It has the little circle of weeds growing around it.

No worries about the weeds I will be getting rid of those soon enough

And we will be using everything out to 100/120 yards, including drills which necessitate moving closer and engaging...so get ready to move those feet and pull those triggers

Everyone, as always, is welcome to bring any pistols, rifles, or other firearms they wish to practice with, drill with, and allow others to try out.

That’s the Saturday night festivities at my place! Despite the chance of weather, everything is still going forward.

As far as Thursday night, everyone just let me know when they get in town and I will hook up with you. You all have my number. Thursday afternoon I will be doing final preparations at the range so we can get started right away on Friday morning. We will also discuss where breakfast is going to be.

We can definitely do something Thursday night if those who are traveling are up for it. I did not plan on anything but I’m not opposed to it. The location where you are staying has plenty to do in the surrounding area.

We will be fine. Rain is only 40%-50% on Saturday (as of now). That means 100% around here but it’s no concern we won’t melt. Plus it’s great training to not always shoot in optimal conditions (as long as there is no lightning, which isn’t anticipated).

And it definitely won’t ruin the cookout that evening

So I have a question, any chance of night shooting? I have a new toy I want to try under live fire

In fact, I had asked about that before arranging the location because I had some drills in mind for at night. However, the range does not allow it so we will play the cards we are dealt

For those who were unable to make it this year for the inaugural NE Ohio 1911 Bash I am happy to report that it went very well.

First and foremost I wish to thank the Struthers, OH Police Department for lending us their spacious range, to City Machine Technologies of Youngstown, OH for donating a bountiful amount of 1/2" AR500 steel for shooting anything we desired at (and DAMN they are heavy!), and for my RSOs/trainers who graciously donated their time to ensure everyone was safe and learned valuable skills while at this event. A big thanks also goes out to aestheticpilot who photographed and filmed much of the event for us to enjoy for years to come.

Folks started to arrive on Thursday evening and I did my best to greet everyone at the hotel though, after prepping the range for two days, I was quite tired. Everyone was in by late Thursday night/early early Friday morning and we met early for breakfast/coffee then headed out to start the weekend's fun!

We began the day with a briefing of the weekend's events and got into warm up drills for a few hours to get the "cobwebs" out of everyone's system. Once we were all warmed up we began the fun drills and friendly competitions, including many mainstays like the El Presidente, 1-to-5 drill, barrel drill, and numerous other exercises developed primarily for defensive skill building. There was a small break for lunch and we wrapped up the day's events around 4pm. We ended the day with a Bash favorite - the Battlefield Pick-Up Drill which gives everyone a chance to try each others' blasters and see how well one can shoot with a "foreign" handgun or rifle under stress. The "Coolest Gun Award" undoubtedly went to a shooter who brought a pristine-condition H&K P7 which most of us have seen but never had the chance to fire (he and D.1911 got the first shots, then the rest of us played!)

That night we traveled to Downtown Youngstown for dinner at Avalon Pizza, a very popular Italian food (mostly pizza) destination in our region. Like other Bash events, we seemed to get bit by the "something at a restaurant had to go wrong" bug but we made it through and enjoyed each others' company before continuing on with our evening much more stuffed than when we started.

The highlight of this evening, quite unexpectedly, was the Oktober Fest going on in Downtown. We all journeyed over to the Rhine Haus Beer Hall where several of us, myself included, partook in a good ol' fashion axe throwing contest! Without a doubt D.1911 was the evening's champ with three solid bullseyes. Who says alcohol and axe throwing don't mix?! After a bit of fun we retired for the evening to rest up for more fun the next day.

Saturday morning it was early breakfast and coffee once more followed by a few warm up drills at the range. Saturday was "concealed weapon" day so everything that was practiced and drilled focused on drawing your carry gun(s) from concealment, reloading from concealed mag pouches, and engaging targets through realistic scenarios and firing positions. Use of cover, fast target acquisition, target discrimination, and firing from typically unpracticed positions (on your back, through a car window, etc) were all conducted. Several drills even involved getting the shooter out of breath before engaging with a firearm to help build shooting skills while exhausted. It's important to note that only one hostage was shot in this day's courses of fire

Saturday evening consisted of a cookout at my place with loads of fun, laughter, adult beverages, the glass fire pit, and one of my dogs not taking much of a liking to apipeguy's beard I think we got even more stuffed than the night before and I thank everyone for the contributions made to the cookout (except the Michigan cookie, that could have stayed in Michigan....)

Due to Saturday evening's festivities and a kind request by the range master, Sunday's shooting did not commence until 10am (it was better for everyone, really!). One of my local Police Sergeants/firearms trainer provided a morning of valuable rifle and weapon transition training which we followed-up with several drills to test the use of all the skills built up over the weekend, including use of cover, shooting on the move, quick reloads from cover, and more. Due to the extensive setup of this day's courses of fire (all of which began at 50 yards and moved inward) time flew quickly but we ended with two friendly pistol competitions to wrap up the event: a round-robin of "5-card draw" and "Battleship", both courtesy of Birchwood Casey and their unique gaming targets (look them up online). We then policed the range for brass, cleaned up, said our goodbyes and "until next times", and left each others' company friendlier and more proficient with a handgun and rifle than when we started. Like many Bashes, we all made friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.

Pictures are still being compiled by me from everyone that was taking them for the event and I promise that I will have some up soon.

Once more I want to thank everyone that participated and I hope everyone that attended (and more!) have an interest in returning in 2020!

We all had a fantastic time and Ytown did an excellent job planning, setting up and running the show.

As always new friends were made and we all enjoyed each other’s company as much as the shooting.

The Michiganders will be back next year!

It was a great weekend, tiring and intense but very good fun and great shooting. Lots of excellent shooters and Jason had a great lineup of drills that normally are very hard to implement without access to a range like the one we had access to. Big thank you to everyone who made this event happen!

I will be coming to be next one for sure!

Really AWESOME folks, special thanks to J and his RSO crew for organizing it and pulling off all the planning - everyone who has been to a Bash knows the planning that is involved. Really and truly wish I could have attended this inaugural event, but work and family was in conspiracy this time, so I will plan on making the next one J! Congrats to D.1911 for the axe-throwing domination!!!!

We very much appreciate you YTown for setting this up and your great RSOs (including apipeguy, who as we all know cannot help himself )

I like being able to do drills I enjoy and truly get practice with concealed carry with the new drills, although I may have to buy an Axe now.

Cannot wait to see the pictures and videos!

Well, these photos are waaaaaaay overdue. My apologies on that. Many of the attendees may have more but these are the ones I was able to get hold of.

I had some range pics posted earlier. This is one more, plus some of the AR500 1/2" steel IDPA targets made for us by City Machine Technology of Youngstown. Note the promo hat. And YES...I took the time to spray paint one of them in Ohio State colors. Go Bucks!
