    I just learned that there is such a thing as Pacific and Northwest States Airgun League (PANSAL) and that they are having an event near Caldwell Id May 6-8.

    “Welcome to the PANSAL Airgun Web Page! We are a group of airgun aficionados from the Pacific and Northwest area of the United States. We try to meet a few times a year to share our airgun enthusiasm through friendly target practice and camaraderie. Our main airgun gathering is “PANSAL Spring Break” which is a 3 day annual event that transpires in late April or early May in the desert BLM land of southwestern Idaho, (near Caldwell). Please check back at this website for a definitive date as April approaches.
    All ages are welcome! We embrace all levels of ability from beginners who are just discovering the magic of airguns, to the old timers who appreciate just how versatile and special these guns truly are. Pansal Spring Break offers a unique opportunity for air gun fans to explore and practice their skills from point blank to 100+ yards in field conditions on targets of all kinds in a safe environment. This is the chance to test out recently modified or newly acquired airguns and also observe other Pansal member’s airguns that you may have only seen online or in magazines.”

    I know nothing about this organization.  Is anyone here a member?  That’s about a 5 hour drive for me which I think is doable.

    Thanks for the heads up, never heard about it.

    Amazing how even in this little sport there are so many isolated silos of enthusiasts. One of the members in Bellevue is practically my neighbor:-) The site seems quite basic, but looks like they’ve been having events dating all the way back to early 2000s!

    If they have something within an hour or two from where I live, I’d love to pop in and socialize.

    There’s a Northwest Airgunners group too.  They meet regularly for Field Target shoots and indoor target shooting somewhere south of Tacoma.  I just found out about this group too.

    Anyone thinking about going to this event?  I need to request vacation days soon if I’m going to go.  It would be essentially a full day of driving for me to get there, and a full day to get back.  I’m not sure it’s worth it.
