Title: Central California Appleseeders - Check in here
Post by: V on January 22, 2009, 01:07:49 PM
Welcome to all the volunteers from the first central California shoot in Sacramento.

When you register on the forum post a message here so we can all find each other easily and begin the exciting process of building a central California nexus for Applessed. We have the Fresno shoot coming up and with your help we hope to get more ranges and more events in your area.

Folks, its your Appleseed. If you want/need more events locally, then jump in here and work with your fellow Rifleman to make it happen.

Once again, Welcome and thank you for making Sacramento in January so great. Lets make Sacramento April even better!

All Local Boots on the Ground

Here are fliers for Fresno and Sacramento (PDF and OpenOffice) you can duplicate to hand out at events such as gun shows, etc.

BaldDragn has the banner and he and Jules are registered to man tables at the Turlock and Stockton gun shows by Code of the West (http://www.codeofthewestgunshows.com/gun_show_schedules.htm)

The national flyer is here (http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=3930.msg37842#msg37842)

Go get 'em folks.

Cheers

Jules here with update of Turlock Gun Show today. We had lots of interest at our table, and V, the banner is grand! As a female it was great to share the positive experiences I had in January at the Sac Valley shoot not only to men, but the women as well. I believe we will have one of my converts there in April. She was seriously excited, and more so when she heard I would also be there. Feminine solidarity really takes off at gun shows. There were several Scout masters who perused the info with interest. Balddragn got a lot of leads of ranges that we can follow up on. We received nothing but positive remarks from everyone. Seeds were planted today. Thanks for the priviledge.

Title: Central California - The Clock is Ticking!
Post by: V on February 08, 2009, 10:10:15 PM
In his usual low-key way our state coordinator, Bob 210, has in this thread (http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=3771.msg53152#msg53152) quietly lit the fuse on Central California.

You guys asked for it and he has, courtesy of Folsom Shooting Club and Sacramento Valley Shooting Center, given it to you. You do remember your mother warning you about that right?

From April 18/19 2009 you now have a regular bi-monthly Appleseed at Sac Valley!

Well you might... because we aren't driving 400 miles each way every other month to lay it on for you. The volunteers who have already stepped up, and future volunteers that they in turn can drum up at the April 18./19 shoot, gun shows, etc., will have to supply the instructor force to make this happen!

We will certainly do everything we can to get you started, we will be there on April 18/19, but we have to be met by volunteers who are local. There is an Instructor Boot Camp scheduled for Piru, there is a shoot in Fresno and after April there is a Rifleman's Boot Camp again in Piru. Now before you all complain about the distance, someone's gotta give initially, if you can organize a date and place in Central California we can schedule an IBC for you there as well.

So we are not threatening to drop you all in at the deep end on April 18/19 (though that has historically been the Appleseed way for some of the old hands!) but we do need people to organize locally so we can work out a handover to an autonomous Central California crew...

Who can then carry the seeds further North...

This is great News Central California. We look forward to working with you all.

Thank you Bob, thank you Sac Valley and thank you to all those who are already stepping up.

Cheers

For those of you who wonder if an RBC (http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=5637.msg52902#msg52902) is worth it may I commend this blog entry (http://appleseedinfo.org/blog/?p=34) by our good friend Junior Birdman.

If you can't make the RBC (http://www.eventbrite.com/event/275502034%20%20) try to make the IBC (http://www.eventbrite.com/event/234710024%20) and if you can't make the one laid on, make one of your own!

Get the people together, find somewhere to hold it (there doesn't have to be any shooting at an IBC so anyone's back yard is fine!) and we'll come and teach you what you need to know to take the fight to your neck of the woods.

If not now, when? If not me, who?

I'm one!

Since the first Sacramento Appleseed, I was at full throttle trying to get ready for the Turlock gun show (and suffering from a bit of unnecessary stage fright about it). I wasn't going to volunteer for more unless I was sure I could finish what I started, so I was more than a bit uncertain about attending an IBC. I think future gun shows will take much less energy so I'm ready to do more. I see no reason for me not to get training first and qualify for IIT later provided that's acceptable.

The So Cal guy's and gals have traveled for us in Nor Cal. We shouldn't hesitate to travel for ourselves!

And if you can't do it for yourself... look at your kids... think about it again.

It certainly is acceptable which is why I asked your score. IBC's are open to Riflemen or those close to getting there who have attended at least one Appleseed. You and Jules would do fine at an IBC.

If you could do another AS event to get the Rifleman between attending the IBC and the AS you intend to teach at under the orange hat that would be good as there's not much time at an IBC to actually do any shooting and get you to your Rifleman unless your zeroed in and ready to shoot a quick AQT during lunch... ;)

Looking forward to working with you and Jules and the other NorCal IIT's

Heck, it is catching on down here watching you go forward with a passion...

I wasn't going to volunteer for more unless I was sure I could finish what I started, so I was more than a bit uncertain about attending an IBC.

BD hits upon something which affected me to begin with, "Don't volunteer I might not be able to finish it, I'll just screw it up for someone else."

A quote used by my mentor Bob 210 at his ASes in Piru cured me of that...

"I believe most men have more courage than they know of, and that a little at first is enough to begin with. I knew the time when I thought that the whistling of a canon ball would have frightened me almost to death; but I have since tried it, and find that I can stand it"  - Thomas Paine

Quote from: BaldDragn
I think future gun shows will take much less energy so I'm ready to do more.

Wise old bird that Paine guy  <:)

Folks, don't think that you can't make a difference or do enough to help. Don't look at other people doing things and say "I couldn't do that as well so I'll let someone else do it", or "There's probably someone else out there that can do it better than me."

This isn't high school, no one wants to see any one fail at anything around here.

If you step in and start doing something more willing hands will appear from nowhere to help you. Don't ask me how it works, it just does. Actually doing things and trusting in the goodwill of your community to step in and help is part of the forgotten heritage of real Americans which seems to have been indoctrinated out of us and which Appleseed helps us to rediscover.

Thanks. It turned out the prep work was 90%. Training for previous jobs kicked in once the public arrived.

Along those lines, I highly recommend that anybody doing gun shows, or other public speaking, fall back to the old standard and read "How to Make Friends and Influence People". It's old, so you can pick it up cheap, but it still works.

Just went to my first shoot as an IIT. If you thought that your first appleseed was amazing, you have no idea how much more amazing it is to teach at one. Helping someone get rifleman is sometimes better than your own rifleman score.

Juliette "Romeo's Hero"

Reading your post had me slow down, quit kicking myself for being so thick headed at my first Appleseed, and realize just how lucky I was to get my score and help someone get their score in one weekend. The best part was definitely getting the PM from a new rifleman and IIT, letting me know I've made a difference.

This is good, real good, and we're just getting started.

Balddragn & I met up with Double D at the Fresno Gun show this morning. Although we had no table available, we were able to talk to a lot of folks! I of course headed to the women who looked to me like prospects. I did talk to a few that were enthusiastic. One lady who lives in Tulare is thinking seriously about the Fresno shoot on the 30-31st of May. I had a great time; it is always good to talk to new people, and advantageous that I am not a bit shy. I told Double D, the worst that can happen is you never see these folks again. I learned by having ONE of the fellas I talked to at the Sacramento Tea Party is: he came to the Sac shoot! If we get just one person to respond, it starts a fire. Really. Even though I didn't shoot Rifleman that weekend(and slowly melted) it was a success for me to have reached one person who came.

Big thanks to Double D for working with us today. We will get the Central Valley covered, just watch us! ;)

Big thanks to Bald Dragon and Jules for the help with the Fresno Gun show.  I was definitely timid at approaching folks, but by the end of the day it was game on.  BD and Jules also helped secure a small place for us at future gun shows in Paso Robles, Bakersfield, and Fresno, courtesy of Mary from Fresno Firearms.  She is gracious enough to give us a small spot for free.  I set up a computer and monitor and had a slide show of the recent shoots going while I walked around and talked to people on Sunday.

I'll be coordinating with the local guys to see who can go to the next gun show.  Moose from Bakersfield said that he could make future gun shows there.  I'll be heading out to Paso Robles next month if anyone is interested in going with me.  Be forewarned, I don't have much in the line of paraphernalia, just a monitor, a computer, and a smile on my face.  ;D

Post by: BaldDragn on April 29, 2009, 06:14:14 AM
Here's the trick!!!

Each of us gets kicked out of the (gun show) nest with little training on what we are doing. Each of us had to put some thought into how we are going to promote this worthy cause. That means for now all of our displays are going to be quite different and even those thay have been doing this for a while will have much to learn from the new guy on the block. As long as we have a solid concept of what Appleseed is and is not I don't see how we can fail.

Showing up and doing the footwork is 95% of the job here.

In the future we will all have a chance to work show that overlap our areas and learn the new tricks that have been developed by the people in each are, heck we may even have things that we can give back to SoCal for all they've done for us.

Title: Questions for Central California Appleseeders
Post by: TrueGrit on September 08, 2009, 01:39:41 PM
I've sent a couple of messages from my inbox but it appears as though they didn't go through.

I'll ask ya'll if you can perhaps direct me, I would presume some of the information I seek is already in posts, I can not find them. The forum is a huge place to me and I'm trying to get familiar.


1) I need to find the location of the Lemore shoot in September, the forum thread. Is there a discussion going on?

2) I need help and instruction for successfully navigating odcmp. Is there a thread that takes me by my little hand and walks me through it here? 'Mongo just pawn in game of life', or so it seems for me at this juncture.

3) I ordered a rear peep sight for one of my 10/22's. My daughter liked shooting this style graciously loaned to us at the Fresno shoot. This style when purchased comes with a front sight.
Is this sight different, is it taller or shorter? Or is it just a better front sight, shape, bead, thinner profile et cetera.
My bottom line question is does that sight need to be changed out for the sights to line-up correctly?
I question it NOT being necessary since it comes with the rear sight, forgive my 'quick and dirty attempts' if this one is a Duh, Der or No-Brainer. If it wasn't why would they send them as a pair.

...I'd like to get some input before I fire up the torch and breakout the brass punches and mallet...

Thanks in Advance,

Russel

You are not alone in that feeling. For some it never goes away. For others it does. I'm not sure which is more worrying  ;)

1) I need to find the location of the Lemore shoot in September, the forum thread. Is there a discussion going on?
The information "Event Information Package" (EIP) for Lemore is here (http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=6055.msg56065#msg56065)
The other way of finding them is from the web page schedule here (http://appleseedinfo.org/as_schedule.htm). Click on "information" link by each shoot and it takes you to the same EIP pages above.

At the top of the page you can see the path of boards leading up to it. Go up by clicking on the links in that path to find all the other shoot EIP's.

We are talking a Ruger 10/22 here right?
All that should be necessary is the punch and mallet and the barrel being well supported, you shouldn't need a torch!

the techsights fit and form is a subject of eternal debate for some people they slide through and drop out, for others they need a bit of filing before they'll drift, etc. The main holding power comes from the little screw to tighten down plus (cue eternal debate II) some color of loctite. The sight will raise up in the slot and look ugly as you screw it down. If it falls out after use, tighten it more, use different color loctite, drill a little dimple for the screw to fit in (eternal debate III starts here). My sights have no loctite, were drifted in and screwed tight and have not loosened or moved with both LTRs having done many AS/Rfilemen. YMMV.

The techsights are aluminium not some heavy duty cast things so treat them with some care. No one is claiming they are battlesights turning a ruger 10/22 into something it is not. It is a cheap and cheerful way to get a battlesight functionality/looknfeel for practice on the cheap. The ruger receiver is aluminium so don't go mad on screwing down the rear sight either (eternal debate IV on loctite in the receiver starts here)

Cheers
V

PS the eternal debate is the LTR thread which I'm not going to provide a pointer for... "Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here" would be a better title for the thread.  @)

First of all thanks for the speedy reply.

It seems I got my answers in spades as well.

I'm big on physics and like the idea of extending the distance between the front and rear sights. I'm also a proof's in the pudding guy and noticed my daughter took to this 'style' of sight picture. Since mileages may vary in many things the bottom line is she likes it.

I've lathered my fair share of housings and assemblies with loctite and a pork barrel ration on the threads as it oozes up and out of the bolt. Just like the screen door in the summer and my dad, decades ago, I just can't listen. I'm a fan of loctite, of course I'm a subconscious fan of shaking, quick movements and rough treatment of equipment. Kind of like the way bull riders feel about IcyHot. I see it as cheap insurance even IF my semantics for the word 'sparingly' entails squeezing that little red tube for a long time.

Post by: TrueGrit on September 09, 2009, 02:14:21 AM
Dinky,

Nice to be with like minded people...

Thanks for the cute comment on Little Ms. B, she is easy to like, IMHO.

This brings in all the instructors at the Fresno Shoot...your time and patience is appreciated.

You guys ALL helped a little 8 year old sass and fuss put holes in paper. And never had any safety issues or concerns with the children.

Only with thick-neck know-it-alls already. Which I fear may be par for the course for you more experienced members. And which was all handled magnanimously, on the RWVA side.

I've mentioned this in a previous post but feel like saying it again...each instructor pointed out a different aspect to work on. Yourself Dinky, my elbow under my rifle. Each one that helped and improved my shot groups. I see no one aspect more important than the others, like balancing a plate on the finger, but each one of its time by the instructors. Like each one commenting on my technique as it improved.

While I care and wished to improve my own shooting skills it is my daughter and the history lessons sprinkled in with the days instruction that I weight most heavily.

Thank you, and 'The Guy", for traveling so far, sacrificing your time in hopes that the candle of knowledge stays aflame. I also heartily commend the others that so graciously volunteered their time for this 'local' event to me.

I keep kicking around notions of giving a bit more of myself when I see true dedicated efforts and sacrifice and an obvious devotion.

I love my country, my state, my county, my city, my family and my friends. I stand strong and steely eyed for each of them. I love freedom and my Momma. Big time. I assure you efforts that give of oneself to others strike a curious eye, from myself.

I do not take the members, instructors and staff as elitists that have nothing better to do. That have a vast and inexhaustable resourses, quite the contrary. If so you've fooled a sharp and skeptical individual.

But I see it more as a commitment, a drive or more aptly stated as a motivation. Do not take my words of praise lightly since I am a man of principle, IMHO. I wish to commend the efforts of Apple Seed and their staff in general.

If we see farther it is indeed because we stand on the shoulders of giants.- Isaac Newton

Russel

Use the loctite, but do not use the red locktite. You will never get them apart. Use the Blue loctite. (you mentioned the red tube)

I'll also take the obvious advice of using the Blue tube sparingly, as best as my personality type allows...

Thanks for the additional knowledge and advice. I'll use it and appreciate it.

Checking in!  Attending Coarsegold, CA event on 7/23 - 24 after being referred by a friend.  For reference I THINK he found the information at The Range Pistol Club here in Fresno where he is a member.  Not sure though.

Anyway, I am prior service (Army, 3 years as a 11C1P in Ft. Bragg, NC) from 94-97.  Looking to relearn all the skills I am sure I have left to rust for far to long and soak up whatever else I can from a 2 day event.

Live in Fresno,  CA

Checking in after attending my first Appleseed in Coursegold, CA. July 23 and 24, 2011.  A special thanks to "Romeo's Hero" (Juliette).

I have come away from the event very appreciative of the newly acquired skills taught by a very good instructor.

Thanks for coming by Double D. and allowing us to play with you many fun toys!  A good time was had by all!  Again, thank you both!

Mike
