Haystack Mountain


Recommended Posts

  • Board Of Directors

Haystack Mountain is a free camping area on BLM land east of Lone Pine, CA in the Owens Valley between the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the west and the White Mountains to the east.  We go there for our annual shooting weekend with pistols, *****, and rifles, out to 600YD, during the day followed by tall tales told around the campfire at night.   There were nine of use this time.

Is that legal in CA?

Yes, as long as the guns are CA compliant and we follow state and federal regulations.

The only gun laws is the second amendment. It clearly state no other laws shall infringe. Which clearly states all American citizens can bare arms.  

 

So all the other laws seem to be infringing on the right to bare guns or weapons. Don't be sawed of shoot gun, too large of magazine, or any other laws they create to limit use or possession of said weapon that again is infringement.  Federal regulation does stop law enforcement or other federal agencies follow these laws too they are exempt from these laws. Seem kind of one side only focused on the American Citizen. Weird how the laws are so crazy now.

Looks fun! I don’t mind dry camping... with my generator of course! I haven’t been to the range  in awhile. Ammo is scares  these days. 

 

No generator require for me. I run silent power. I set out my solar panels and have 120 VAC power through the RV without making a single noise. Now if there was a shade tree I would park the RV under the shade and keep it cooler and the put my solar panels out in the sun.

My trailer has an outlet on the side for solar hookup. I’ve got one 100 watt panel.I should buy another one.  I have never hooked it up. I always forget to grab it. Having the microwave oven available for use is always nice. I’ve got a 750 watt inverter. I need to hard wire it into the trailer. So all the outlets work through it. Just haven’t gotten around to doing it. Plus I want a bigger one for that.

I've only got three 15w panels (45w total) from Harbor Frieght and been doing fine with that small amount of charge. I've been watching Home Depot for panels and have some wonderful solar panels for good price.  

 

300w of solar panels and solar controller too. 

https://www.homedepot.com/p/Grape-Solar-300-Watt-Off-Grid-Solar-Panel-Kit-GS-300-KIT/203505917

 

Now a kit like that I would think of possibly mounting just a single panel on the roof. Then hard wiring that panel to the controller and RV. That way while in storage it would have 100w worth of solar charge for the batteries and eliminate the need for city power for the house charger. The other two panels I would build a free stand frame like my current HF panels stand.

I'd be contemplating that while sitting in a CA jail for being noncompliant.   499243054_animated-smileys-weapons-0141.gif.ec68d9434acdb3df48384a1c9f44369d.gif

Im sure everyone was practicing social distancing laws

Yes, we were antisocial the whole time.  The closest camper was about 1/2 mile away on the other side of the mountain.

I have two golf cart 6 volt battery's in series, a 1500 watt inverter, and a 2k watt generator all in the front compartment of the 5er. You can see my 5er and the open compartment in the second picture above.  The generator gets real quite when I turn my hearing aids off and the closest shade tree is over 3 miles away.

They defunded the police so everyone calls @IBMobile. He has a small jail cell in the 5vr for those that don't social distance and refuse to wear a mask.
