The surviving family of Paul Ehline [an enlisted United States Marine NCO], is eternally grateful to all the vets and the owner of Lytle Creek Firing Line for its memorial service to Sergeant Paul Ehline. Recently, Gregory Horton (SGM, Ret.) of the Special Forces Foundation, also an inactive Marine, said his team would be there.
Each year a new person or volunteer seems to lay out an idea to help vets and also make people aware of the Firing Line. With resources for shooters dwindling, Lytle Creek remains one of the few ranges that can service large events, military memorial services, historical reenactments, etc. On May 13, 2023, they are hosting a fundraiser for the USMC Sergeant Paul Ehline Memorial Ride & Shoot Against Service Related Cancers, a 501c19 military service veterans organization.
This last year the Ride did an event in Texas, and USMC country star Tyler Jay was there performing in Houston, Texas. Also in attendance were several chapters of the Leathernecks Motorcycle Club International (The Originals) and several other local celebrities and social media influencers.
At the Firing Line last year, Taran Butler of Taran presented steel targets to the Marines, Riders, or the Marines’ Reserve Officer Training Corps, who then acted as the honor guard. A world-class three-gun shooter, Butler builds the guns used by John Wick in his movies. Also, Keanu Reeves trains at his private range.
We always have a Scottish bagpiper (also a Marine) who plays “Amazing Grace,” “Scotland the Brave,” and the “Marine Corps. Hymn.” The sound of various-sized rounds cracking the berm with loud bagpipes piping is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for many.
Everyone qualified gets a chance to shoot, and range safety is always number one, especially with so many Marines around. There is a raffle, and the LMCI and Marine Riders often sell food and refreshments. Taran gave out a lot of free goodies last time and let us shoot off quite a bit of ammo. We do it early to beat the heat, and the camaraderie among all the vets is palpable.
Future plans. The Firing Line plans to have a three-gun shoot, with vendors selling various self-defense items and other cool things and charities supporting vets and their families like the Marine Corps League. We will have a filming drone, it will be filmed for social media, and we will be sending out press releases and inviting the local ROTC and community leaders to cover the event.
Here is a link to the charity.
In a nutshell, Michael Ehline (also a Marine) lost his father from Agent Orange cancer during the COVID lockdowns. He could not get a proper 21-gun salute for his dad, as the memorial was shut to these burials at the time. The son got help from the LMCI, and the LMCI reached out to our range. We held the salute, which became a charity ride for vets and bikers.
One of the aims of the charity is to secure the same protections for West Coast vets as east coast vets are getting under the PACT Act and Camp Lejeune Justice Act. The organization supports safe riding and invests heavily in the veteran and M/C community to fight cancer and raise awareness. We hope your organization might be interested in supporting these honorable activities and causes. We have several ideas to co-promote the event with local vendors, like Harley dealers, that would benefit vets, riders, and their families.
We are also contacting local motorcycle shops to see if they want to donate a motorcycle to a raffle. We invite you to set up a booth and support this worthy cause. In addition, the charity is setting up a fallen rider’s fund if you are interested in participating in this program. If you know of any repair shops, hobbyists, or dealerships interested in raffling off some items, I think it would be a win-win situation.
The range will offer a special mystery bonus to show its support and get people back into the traditions of shooting we got to experience as a youth. Mr. Ehline specializes in Second Amendment rights and serious personal injury cases, so he will be available to answer questions. He may give a quick seminar on the state of CA self-defense rights post-2023.
We look forward to hearing back. Ehline Law and their personal injury attorneys have arranged a ride-and-shoot event at a Firing Range where guests will enjoy a motorcycle trip with food, music, and many laughs.

Details of the Ride & Shoot Event

Timings: 8:00 AM to 3:30 PM
Location: Lytle Creek Firing Line
The Memorial Motorcycle Ride is back again this year on May 13, 2023, and it’s bigger than before.
Hundreds of veterans, family members, and friends are expected to participate in the Paul E. Ehline Memorial Ride & Shoot, a memorial event that raises awareness about service-related cancers among those who served at military bases across the US.
A Tribute to Marine Sergeant Paul Ehline for a Good Cause
Paul Ehline Ride is a tribute to Marine Sergeant Paul Ehline and many other veterans who lost their lives because they could not get the diagnosis and treatment sooner. In collaboration with Michael Ehline, CEO of Ehline Law (premier personal injury law firm), we are hosting the Paul Ehline Memorial Ride 2023 at Lytle Creek Firing Line.
Come to Lytle Creek Firing Line for fun, games, and chit-chat, all for a good cause.
Previous Event Knocked Other Events out of the Park
Last year, on November 26, 2022, Paul Ehline Motorcycle Ride celebrated the 247th Birthday of the U.S. Marines at Tun Tavern, where we called in several chapters of the Leathernecks Motorcycle Club International, singers, and performers, including Aaron Holmes and John Gentry.
It was a fun-filled event where guests interacted with each other, had delicious food and beverages offered by LMCI and marine riders, and learned more about the cause.
There was even a raffle for a motorcycle by a local Harley Davidson dealer!
The Ride & Shoot Is Going to Be Bigger and More Explosive This Year!
This year, at the Lytle Creek Firing Line, everyone can shoot, enjoy mystical bagpipes played by our United States Marine Corps friend, indulge in mouthwatering food, and hear the Harleys roar. On top of that, there may be secret goodies at the end of the event.
Help Us Make This Fundraiser Event a Memorable One
Although we carry out these events to unite the veteran community over a couple of laughs, drinks, and a motorcycle ride, the main objective is to help those suffering from service-related illnesses. To do that, we request everyone attended to donate with a generous heart and towards a cause that is much greater than ours.
Your charitable donations help us support the veterans and their surviving families and let us continue to host such events to let Congress know how the West Coast vets stationed at military bases suffered injuries and that they deserve the Paul Ehline Justice Act.
Texas Paul Ehline Ride
Don’t miss out on the Texas event, either. April 22, 2023, will see an amazing event with country stars and vets standing up for the veterans.
