Appleseed.... Just DO IT!

This weekend is being invested in Appleseed, not as instructor, but as participant.  #2 son is doing the clinic with me.

Folks.... I cannot reinforce this point enough.  If you have never done an Appleseed clinic, PLEASE sign up for one now.  Take your spouse, your best friend, your shooting age kids, your dad, your co-workers, your neighbor..... anybody you would like to spend a few enjoyable and highly worthwhile days with.

It doesn't matter if you don't know nuthin 'bout dat rifle shootin stuff.  They will teach you.  It doesn't matter if you are a national level competitive shooter.... you will learn something.   Most of all.... most important.... you will taking part in something important to our nation and our community.

In other notes..... with the most excellent help and sharp eyes of Gary and Mal (Appleseed instructors), I've found a few flaws in my skills and am working to correct them now.  The results?   A new high Rifleman score (238/250) and a clean Redcoat target.

Yesterday (Sat) the boy and I shot with .22's.  Today we both use our AR's in 5.56mm.   The ammo expenditure is worth it, as the basic skills training time is invaluable.

Appleseed... just do it.  You won't regret it, I promise.

Absolutely. Had a great time a few weeks back when they were in Georgia for a training weekend.

Always feels good to clean a target :D

I agree, don't pass up an Appleseed.
