Orange County MAG (Mutual Assistance Group)
« on: January 31, 2011, 09:24:12 PM »
Just a thought. If this isn't "appropriate" for the TSP Forum my apologies. Or if this is already been done please direct me to the right thread. I saw this idea on another forum I frequent. Has anyone here thought of organizing a Mutual Assistance Group for Orange County TSP'rs? The idea as I understand it is a group that generally practice survival skills together and lives close enough to help each other out WSHTF.

Interesting idea.  Unfortunately, all the folks I know on the TSP here live a fair distance away from each other (45+ min drive w/o traffic).  On the plus side, we could be a semi-local BOL for each other.   We can throw the idea around at our nest meeting.

I like your thinking Shogunn. :) If you take a look back into the many activities that the TSP'ers around the Southern Cal/Orange County region have done together, I believe you'll find that several of those activities included some sort of survival skill instruction/practice. What you're asking/hoping for would be great. The challenge would be in finding someone who lives close enough in order to have such a group. Let's keep expanding on the idea...

I'm interested as well... as long as I'm in town or not wrapped up in a project.

I think discussing this Saturday is a great idea.

Now that we have gone shooting at Burro Canyon and camping together as a group. I think we should take another look at this idea.

I've only lurked here on occasion and posted recently.   I've tried to get friends, family and neighbors involved but to no avail.
I live 'here' in Anaheim and would be interested in meeting up to meet and greet.

Once you participate in TSP a bit more, you'll see the meet & greet board open up to you. We meet up about once a month and it's a REALLY big group (20-30 people).

0861 You should like the meet and greet. I too live on the border of Anaheim / Garden Grove. You are not alone. Hope to see you at one of the meetings.

Hello Raptor.  My church has a shooters group.  We're looking to try and squeeze another shoot into our schedule before the holidays really hit.  I'll shoot you a message when it comes together.  We shoot at Evans Gunsmithing in Orange.  We are allowed to rent the police range and it can get a little tight spacewise, but we work it out.

so... how much of the forum is blocked off/off limits to new viewers? rather interesting idea that it should be set up this way...

Once you reach 10 posts, you will get more access, it keeps out the bots...
