State Laws to be aware of:
It is the responsibility of attendees to know and comply with all State and Federal Firearms Laws.
Check State Laws. Make sure all magazines are unloaded during travel. Ohio case law says that having an unloaded firearm in the same vehicle compartment as a loaded magazine, means the firearm is "loaded" and you are therefore carrying a concealed weapon (even if in a case in your trunk). Laws are changing so please be sure to check as the above information may out date prior to your shoot.
A beautiful location for an Appleseed! Bring centerfire rifles for possible KD on Sunday, but 22lr is adequate. Please leave all firearms in your vehicle until after the safety briefing.
NO ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES
