Every time I think back to this shoot, I can't help but smile! Even though it was bitter cold, it was a great time.
to OnlyHitsCount and Rizzin on their change of hat colors. You've both worked hard, and have earned those red hats. Well done!
Also, congratulations and thank you to Bobby and Sparkss for taking on the orange hats. Being an instructor is often hard work, but it's a lot of fun too.
Looking forward to working a line with both of you.
Erin and John, I enjoyed working with you guys! Thank you both for your teachable attitudes and willingness to learn. Keep practicing those 6 Steps and come on back to another Appleseed!
Sparkss, I was so glad that I was there when you got your rifleman scores. Thanks for putting up with me.
Austin, I enjoyed working with you too. Do some dry-firing at home, and work on your NPOA and trigger finger. Great improvement from day 1 to day 2.
Elijah, good job on learning the steps to making your rifle safe.
Rick, keep working on your trigger control. It was great to meet you and I hope you can make it to an Appleseed in Mass.
Tim and crew, great to see you guys again. Thanks so much for letting me shoot your Remington 700. SO much fun!
Instructors, always a pleasure working with ya'll. We'll see you all again soon. (Hopefully we can get some SPRING or SUMMER shoots set up for Yakima.
Earl, I was so surprised and pleased to see you. Thanks for stopping by, even though it was only for a moment. Made my day.
And a big thanks to the range for holding another Appleseed shoot!
PS. I've only got a few Saturday pictures on MY camera, which are below. Rizzin will have to post the rest of my pictures which are on his camera. Thanks Joni and Earl for your great pictures too! The Jr. one is great, Joni!
