Sorry for the lack of posting this weekend, folks. Carteach spent the time volunteering at a local Appleseed shoot. Despite the bitter cold wind, and occasional snow squalls, people still came out to challenge that Rifleman score. All the shooters showed some measure of improvement, some a large measure indeed. One gentleman did achieve a score entitling him to the coveted Rifleman patch, and considering the low temps and 30+ mph wind gusts, it earned him the much rarer 'Winterseed' patch. Folks... if you haven't attended an Appleseed clinic yet, I can't encourage you strongly enough to do so. The skills alone are worth every second, with the history lessons being icing on the cake.
