PA Nuggetfest location is now on the /k/map. Follow the link to make it easier to map out directions.
There is Grice gun shop and Bob's surplus in Clearfield.
Walmart in DuBois and Clearfield.
Several other shops in the area.
The key is that out here "Nearby" is about 20-30 minutes.
You're more than welcome to do so at a nearby FFL or private transaction in accordance with local, state, and federal law off NuggetFest property.
I usually send out a spread sheet to everyone via email so they can list how many people they're bringing and what gear and firearms. Wasn't planning on doing it this time since fewer and fewer people have been filling it out. But I can send the link out tomorrow night if you guys really want it. There's also the thread in the forum mentioned here >>28586484
bring 5.56 and 9mm and you can shoot my future guns all you want. IU dont care if its .223/steel/brass/5.56/whatever. Just have fun. magdump all you want too.
To anybody who remembers last fest how i literally gave out 1k rounds and didn't really care....I can't just do that this time too. Sorry. I'll bring as much as I can but if you guys want to shoot MSAR you are welcome to have your own ammo or find it somewhere and play with it. I don't care about shooting anything I've handled more guns than will be there but I want people to enjoy stuff they have never handled before. I'll give out as much ammo as I can but don't be upset if you see me giving out ammo to some people but not you. Its not because I hate you it'll be because I ran out. Also i passed my fucking final and am very very drunk.
I also have a PC that fits pretty much any size ever. If you never wore a PC and want to play around with one you are welcome to wear it and feel special too. I really just want to give people chances to play with things they don't get to anywhere else.
You autistic fucks, the host doesn't want you doing this shit at the meet. How fucking stupid are you to not understand this. Grow the fuck up and act like you have some social skills for once in you tiny little lives you retarded wannabe sovereign citizen do what ever you want and fuck what ever happens to people around you. Jesus fucking Christ I hate you anarchists who refuse to follow the easiest of direction.
the dictionary defines "nugget" as "a lump of something"
why do i simultaneously feel like i'm bringing too much and yet not enough
I'll be bringing at least one item from this photo.
>As always requests for the traveling surp show?
well, for one you're going to be hiking around in the woods in the cold, if you'rr staying the whole 3 days then you dont have enough food, you're going to burn that many calories just trying to keep warm.
where is your water supply?
you're going camping, not fighting a war, why is your loadout geared towards tactical operations and not in the woods wilderness camping?
in addition to the three MRE's, the woodland sustainment pouch is filled with...sustainment.
my water supply is melted snow/camelbak in the midle/ not pictured nalgenes that will end up freezing anyways.
toilet paper is in the red stuff sack.
because /k/ made me do it. and my summer camping gear couldn't hold the bulkiness of cold weather clothing, ammo, a 4 person 4 season tent and a MSS bag.
I'll be bringing my General Motors M1 Carbine and what little ammo I have. You all are welcome to shoot that, one or two rounds per person, but anyone who brings .30 Carbine ammo can feed as much as you like to it.
Also does anyone know how the TSA feels about Milsurp ammo cans when it comes to checked baggage?
No but yes. lol
There will be a rules banner hung up at the range and a briefing each morning when the range opens and a quick recap after lunch. Pretty basic stuff you'd see at any range, a few extras like "Don't shoot the trees" but nothing crazy.
same gear packed into a 3 day bag. not as comfortable though, the filbe pack really has a better support system and could fit my plate carrier inside so i don't have to leave it out in the car
if a blizzard or shitstorm ends up brewing while at nuggetfest, will there be any places to weather it out like tents or at least tarps? I dont want to have to go into the fetal position to stay warm
i wouldn't recommend relying on other people for weather appropriate shelter, but it does seem like we anticipate bringing a few of you in from the cold.
or, just hang out with >>28596228
he might have room in his gorka
Yeah, those four I had were my bad. I was more focused on keeping vertical muzzle climb under control, forgot about keeping it from drifting to the right. Being a manlet is suffering sometimes.
I've got a question: I'm going to be hammock camping, but don't have an underquilt. Will a pair of thick wool blankets plus a good sleeping bag and pad be enough or will I just be miserable the whole time?
Odds are we'll be creating a tarp shelter around the campfire like we did when freezing rain showed up last winter.
I have more tarps now so we can make it fully enclosed on the sides this time.
Fair enough, we'll see you in the summer.
>Is PA about as east coast as it gets when it comes to NuggetFest?
Yes. Sorry but the few free states like Vermont and Maine are blocked by a minefield of very strict states like New Jersey and New York. Suffice it to say, it makes every aspect of logistics considerably more complicated and difficult.
That's fine /k/ommrade. There's always several people that can't get Friday off work or need that day for driving and show up Saturday, which is the day most of the target shooting and events go on.
Ignore him, Johnson is not known for making the most intelligent or accurate statements.
I don't have much experience with hammocks but it sounds like a good plan.
Never heard that prhase before but if it's not Legal in the state of Pennsylvania, it's not welcome.
Is this worth going to if I'm nogunz? I do have some firearm experience from boy scouts but I'm not a hardcore oper8to faggot like everyone else seems to be is so will I have a bad time if I show up in normie clothes? I really do like shooting funs and camping I promise.
Oh I've got that, a thick inflatable pad, much better than the closed cell foam pads I've brought previously. Just figured I'd get a second opinion on my half-assed underquilt replacement
Fuck, reading is fundamental. I missed where you said you have a foam pad. In that case, carry on. Be hammock camped in 30 degrees with just a thermarest and down 20* sleeping bag.
I was in a hammock at the last winter one. I was using an issued MSS and a thermorest pad and was quite comfortable. I suggest a bivy if you do not already have one, and you will want a tarp or something to shield you from the wind.
>select all images with trees
Jeez I know how to do winter camping. I've also done several wilderness survival outings so I plan on being as minimal (read: no portable generator and gas stove and space heater) as possible.
My only concern is being noguns and not having 5 full sets of milsurp gear like everyone else tends to do at other nuggetfests. I promise I am not a dumb moron either, I've been lurking /k/ for years to know the culure.
You're not a bad person, though you have put your foot in your mouth a few times before.
Absolutely, just bring warm clothes, a good tent/sleeping back and something to eat and drink for the weekend. It's going to be quite cold, so be prepared.
If you bring your own food I have a few cooking grates and pots you're welcome to use.
Chances are, if they look like a woman they probably aren't. And if they look like a man they might not be. I heard rumors that Sewfag and a few other tripfags here are women pretending to be male.
There will be a few cookfags making stew or soup or chili. Go to the nuggetfest forums and post in the cookfag thread. Bring some ingredients for the pot. Maybe a pound of beef and vegetables.
Not him but I'm interesting in this kind of talk
So I'm looking around online for ammo and this LAX ammo place seems to have REALLY good deals on rifle ammo, like 30 bucks for 50 rounds of .300 and 12 bucks for 20 rounds of .30-30 all name brand brass cased stuff. Anyone ever bought from these guys before, is there anything I should know? I feel like with prices this low I'm going to get shafted on the S&H.
Are you circumcised?
Haven't had any complaints on my exchange rate yet. Did have some doucher freak out that I wouldn't drop everything I was doing and make a chart for him the first time I offered ammo as an exchange medium.
made my day thanks fag
were you really surprised though?
Hammock, MSS (or other -30 degree bag), a pad, and a tarp to hang over. Thats what i did last year and i got hot st night, and stayed dryer than the tentfags. It was also my first time hammoxk campong.
Here's to hoping the CAF waterproof gear shows up in time.
>maybe he meant the one in the black shirt. :^)
there were two guys in hammocks next to me at NF, i was jelly.
a few nights on the ground isnt a big deal at all but i wish i brought a hammock.
>more NF spank material
I can be sweet and romantic and shit. I won't be, but I can.
Also if anyone has gearshift questions you can email me, post here, or post in the NF forums (though it takes me a while to get back via the forum)
Damn, I should really check the threads on the Finnish site. I've been pretty busy since Christmas. I'm going to start working some things out after this Winter NuggetFest next month.
There are laws about interstate gun buys...
Make sure you look them up.
Unless you live in PA.. then you are ok.
But you may not buy a gun AT nuggetfest. you may however buy one at a local gun store while you are on your nuggetfest weekend.
If they go to a local fun store or even take 1 step off his property line it is %100 fine.
Which is why annons are asking for local fun stores and asking where the property line is.
I live in Pittsburgh, and always consider coming up to nugget fest just for the day. (saturday) from like 10am to 8pm or something.
Does anyone else only show up for a day? Is this acceptable?
Well I might not make it to this one, weather depending. But now that Ive got a new job with a better vacation day setup maybe I'll be able to make the summer one. If I don't see you guys, hope you have a blast and stay safe
>really want to just road trip out there
>live in IL
>these are always like a 10 hour drive
>wife says i cant leave her and our kid behind
>be unemployed right now
Since i dont have a job tieing me down... How mad would my wife be if i just said "bye, ill be back on sunday!"?
So I thought I should bring something up. If you have a tent with cords staked into the ground, please for the love of fucking fucks do not put them across areas people are going to walk. The will get tripped over and ripped out of the ground as soon as it gets dark and may get someone hurt. The best thing you can do it get some of glow sticks and attatch them to the cords so people can actually see where they are.
Honestly you would be more well liked if you posted as anon and only said asinine things in person. That's why people are still happy to see me every year; I hide my shitposting.
what /k/omando wouldn't want the practice of walking through a booby trapped area/live minefield in the dark?
probably when a drunk fat neckbeard falls on your tent when you are trying to sleep in the middle of the night
You are not channeling your Russian properly if you cannot navigate a minefield in the dark while drunk.
where exactly is it, and can we go wheeling/atvs and jeeps and shit also what about alcohol ?
There is an ATV trail on the adjoining state land, but the property itself is not large enough to go wheeling around on.
Booze is fine, however once you start drinking you are done shooting for the day. This is for safety reasons.
It's near Penfield, PA. This map shows it in better detail >>28607336
There are some trails in the area that you can drive down if you'd like, just not the trail leading through the property. Anyone 21 and up can drink ,but drinking usually starts at the end of the day when the ranges are cold. You can drink earlier but once you start drinking for the day, you're done handling firearms.
If you have any other questions you can email me or check out the forums and website.
I'm slowly realizing exactly how fucking cold it's going to be that weekend.
Can /k/ recommend a good pair of gloves that will allow me to retain dexterity for shooting?
I think I'm fine with headwear. I could buy a ski mask but my shemagh actually keeps me pretty warm.
I think I've tried every sort of glove imaginable and my only advice to you is to get hand warmers. Any glove that is going to give you any measure of dexterity is not going to protect you from the cold and any glove that will protect you from the cold will severely limit your ability to do things with your fingers.
The best all around option I've found is to get a pair of knit or jersey gloves and then wear those half-finger/mitten gloves over them. This gives you decent dexterity but while still having an option for warmth. Otherwise, get a nice sturdy pair of leather gloves with Thinsulate and slip a hand warmer in.
One of the general rules is "Don't be a dick" which basically means, don't be a dick to people at NuggetFest. If you do that and follow the safety rules you're more than welcome and I'm sure there will be be people happy to let you try their firearms, especially if you have ammo/money to compensate them.
Glad you like the namefag I came up with.
Remember to put winter air in your tires people :^)
I have had excellent results with USGI wool glove liners under insulated mechanix. My hands get wet, but dry fast and stay warm. Sully might be bribed to bring some glove liners along.
Gunbroker usually has a couple good ones for rather cheap. Not really much of a market for them becasue many can't support smokeless, are in (mostly) retired calibers and aren't a Webley. Or you can go to Simpson and work on your gunsmithing skills with a rattled out double barrel.
>tfw can't get one becasue landlord is technically a felon
The only glove you'll ever need:
Seriously though get some cheap Milsurp wool gloves. They're the best. Thinsulate and Goretex are good if you want to spend more.
As much as I love milsurp (most of my light, non winter gloves are random pairs of tacticool gloves) the ones on the left are the best winter gloves I have ever owned. 20 years in Michigan give me valuable experience with the freezy cold shit. They're manzella ski gloves and they work great for shooting too, even with my Vz58 blasting gas into the palm.
SCUBA GLOVES better known as diving gloves keep hands warm . Also rubbing carnuba wax to your habds and feet will do wonders for warding off frostbite, then again what does retired SVD know about cold weather operating ope
I forgot my trip name thingy when I posted about the blizzard. Here in York PA we are supposed to get a great Nor'easter with tons of snow Friday into Saturday, can't wait!
I'm sure you will. My broke ass will be shoveling snow. And my manager can suck it if I don't wear my uniform in favor of dressing warm.
We can dig trenches! They are kind of like igloos except they are made of dirt and are under ground. And probably void lease terms but we can pretend we are poorly equipped Austro-hungarian troops.
Your van ain't making it to work Saturday if the snow pans out the way they say. I'd just call off now, come ride around in the snow in my suburban. I'll pick you up Saturday morning.
Right now the 15 day forecast shows mild temperatures and an inch or two of snow. I can handle that.
PAfags, how good is your Dept of Transportation at salting roads when it snows? I'm driving a FWD car and I don't have chains or snow tires. Am I fucked?
I would say they are too good at clearing the roads of snow. PennDOT likes to ruin all the fun of driving in the snow by removing it all before I get a chance to drift on any of it.
Then definitely call off, won't be any business happening anyway with all the snow. Call me then Saturday morning and we can hang out, go get Robs if they haven't closed due to snow... Ha
>doesnt live on a back road
I don't expect them to clear the road for the mine very well. It isn't really a public road that cars will be on.
That said, if you can't make past that, someone will make arrangements to get you into the camp from wherever you park.
I'm in Pittsburgh and planning on heading up for the day Saturday but my car is not built for the likely combination of unpaved and snowy roads. Is there anybody going from pgh that would be interested in driving up together Saturday, or how far is the walk from a paved location?
I don't think it'll be THAT bad. The girl's car is a Honda civic and she drives anywhere she needs to out here.
Now if you've got bald tires or DOT Slicks or something then yeah maybe don't try it.
I believe most anyone will be able to make it into town, and will make at least the small car parking lot.
Summer fest had a Saturn sedan all the way in the 4x4 lot.
To be fair, the Ferd sank into the mud from being parked, the Subie was on dry ground.
> TFW never posted the video of Creep and company jumping up and down in the bed of a bogged pickup truck while the wheels spin hopelessly
also does someone want to eat some 23 year old mre sugar and tang i found in SADF chest rig?
I am asian...
If you're coming from the north, there's also a walmart in st mary's and Elk County ammo and arms. If you're coming up on 322, you will pass by Belding and Mull in Philipsburg.
State Forest, the state park, Parker Dam, is close by.
More food. You have fuel, so I'm assuming the top bag is a stove of some sort. also, you'll want something other than just a sleeping bag.
If we get snow, yes. If we get sleet, no. You need to be able to keep the wind and wet off your ass. So two sleeping pads on bottom and an emergency blanket suspended under you. Also use the wool for up top and bottom. Your rainfly/tarp will be good for wind protection as well.
I'll be running a snugpak underblanket, a -15 bag, two thermorest ridgerests, a sol mylar sports utility tarp, and a rainfly. I plan on being warm. Worst comes to worse, I'll start a fire infront of my setup.
I unfortunately have another convention that weekend, but the weekend before a few of us are going up and cutting wood if you're interested.
Also, I'm always down for winter camping. I work at psu.
I literally just bought my first milsurp camo thing a week ago. Don't worry about it. Most people go just to have a good time in the woods and shoot the shit and guns.
Also, all heads up. If you lot get stuck sunday, I'll be coming over to help people get unstuck. I have a jeep with chains.
Not sure how this snow will pan out but I'll have local weather updates for you and will post pics from the weekend before woodcutting expedition.
Unless someone is inviting me to play with it, the status/existence of someone's dick is kind of a nonissue for me.
nigger does it look like thats every single goddamn item i'm bringing? do you think maybe i didn't spread out 100lbs of gear to take a photo for you to jack off over? do you even see a single piece of clothing?
goddamn nigger. thanks for turning your trip on so i can filter you out.
>He says about the chick that's tracking down WGW patches for him at SHOT
That truck got stuck because it was not a real truck equipped with 4wd. Also it had shitty road tires not good for anything off road and an inexperienced driver who kept trying to turn his way out of the swamp. Jumping up and down almost worked, if he got the wheel straight and drove out instead of turning and digging in more. Then anon brought out the chains and yanked that fucker out with his subie.
I know this because I was one of those asshole jumping up and down on the bumper.
Tea we're all like the japanese guys in the chinpokomon south Park episode compared to you. Seriously your cock should have is own zip code. Tea caused 9/11 with her morning wood from commifornia and to save face for the rest of men everywhere the government covered it up with "terrorists attacks". The only reason the US got to the moon first is because all they had to do was climb teas cock and jump the 10 remaining feet to the surface.
>tfw when you got a chestrig with nothing in it
Bring it. Embrace the gear.
Let it surround you.
Besides, there may be people there who can help set you up. What rifle/pistol/rock do you use most?
This'll be the first nuggetfest I've ever been to, what do?
That sounds nice, although I have never been one for ketchup on my eggs.
I had cereal and coffee today. The real fun starts when it gets a little cooler. That's when I start with the grits and syrup, eggs, and maybe some scrapple if i am feeling frisky.
I agree with the bacon thing. the problem is unfortunately no bacon was available for consumption.
>ketchup mostly for hash browns but I kind of mixed it all in a bowl.
I think I'm going to bring a pile of hamburger to nuggetfest so we can make burgers like a true burger. I just have to find my cast iron skillet I use for camping.
The important thing is to bring a cooler to keep the things you want to keep not frozen from freezing. You will most likely have frozen burger after 1 night if you do not use a cooler.
Look guys, Im all for pushing the limits, but wintertime in the middle of nowhere isnt the best time or place to find out if you're C Class can traverse the Rubicon.
If you're unsure if your whip can make it up everest then just save everyone (especially yourself) the trouble and possible damage and park in the lower lot(s)
Hot DAMN Guys!
mabye its true nuggetfest time of year is a magi/k/al time of year?
This /K/omando just successfully negotiated what shall be known as the Great DAKKA Accord with wife.
No complaints or bitching regarding purchase of safe(s) and gun(s) and or other firearm related paraphernalia in the future. This agreement has no termination date
All for the Price of a round trip plane ticket to AZ traveling with her mom.
I think there is at least an SCAR H in the future this year.
I dont know, I was already gone by Sunday.
Creep mentioned that in an earlier thread, but there were a LOT of holes and some deep ruts. I would assume that someone would need at least truckload or 2 of fill or gravel to repair that road.
Part of the problem seems to be as more and more people arrive and the road gets used that it deteriorates fairly quickly. If someone filled the holes and ruts with loose dirt Im not sure how long it would last before its back in dismal condition.
Even if the ruts and holes are partially filled, dealing with potential snow and ice is another problem entirely.
Im just suggesting people play it safe
I agree, with snow and ice even a paved road, with all the hills and dips that trail has, would be hard to get up.
I can recover vehicles with my suburban, but it may cost you, I cant guarantee no damage may result from recovery. Especially when it's nasty out.
We aren't trying to scare you, if you are confident in your, and your autos, abilities can make it then come up to the last parking area. But be careful.
Yes sir, gas ain't cheap!
here it is at the fall cleanup
after the med lot people arent getting shit up without clearance and 4wd
Anyone else legit worried about undercover ATF showing up to observe?
I'm not doing anything illegal and don't endorse any illegal activity, but after the blackpowderranger and saiga marine shit that happened at the end of last year, we've got to be under surveillance, no?
I just don't want to be on a watch list as a potential white supremist terrorist when hildog decides to suspend due process.
this meetup is probably the most fun you are going to have with your taxpayer money
dont be scared
If you are on a watch list it's from shitposting here and following links to various bestiality websites. An undercover ATF agent can't won't do shit and Creep doesn't keep a list of people so it doesn't matter.
Reread the post he's worried about getting photos taken and being added to a watch list not getting arrested for arms trafficking in a raid
Your probably alright but posting on this website already puts you down somewhere I'm sure

That's a negative, ghostrider.
He was atracked by the three legged bear that I almost hit with my truck when we were leaving on Sunday.
I was the last vehicle out, since Ash stayed behind.
> He wasn't eaten. He did drain most of the mud holes and then drove out. They are still there but were not as bad, but then it hadn't been raining for a while before I stopped by this summer.
well, she is crazier.
Im sure she's a great lay, but I've grown fond of my cats head being attached to his body and my truck tires not being cut to ribbons, so I try to avoid the crazy tang
