Title: 2019 KS Appleseed Oct 5-6 Air Capital Gun Club near Wichita - New event up!
Post by: Lomshek on January 15, 2019, 01:01:09 AM
How good are you?  A Rifleman can put 5 rounds into a postage stamp at 25 meters prone unsupported.  No bag, no bipod, no bench. 
This is the size a target at 500 meters would appear.  That’s what we’ll teach you.

October 5-6 25 meter .22LR only Appleseed at Air Capital Gun Club near Wichita, KS (https://goo.gl/maps/MoEYKm84tEw).  .22LR only at ACGC (no centerfire)!

Notice - Smith & Wesson 15/22 .22LR rifles have been temporarily banned from Appleseed while S&W and Appleseed work to determine the cause of malfunctioning rifles that have created safety concerns. That may or may not change at any time.
S&W centerfire AR15's, all .22LR conversions and non-S&W .22LR dedicated uppers are allowed.

If you’ve wanted to learn the finer points of putting accurate rounds on target this is for you.  We’ll spend two days learning how to shoot the rifle from standing, seated, kneeling and prone with just a sling to help steady the rifle.  No bipods, bags or benches (although we do make any allowances needed for a person's physical limitations).

We’ll do our shooting at 25 meters using reduced size targets to simulate distances of up to 500 meters.  There’s no point walking back and forth to far away targets or worrying about wind and drop until you can actually put rounds on a simulated size target.  The 500 meter target is a 1" square (the size of a postage stamp).

Here's the link to Appleseed's national calendar (https://appleseedinfo.org/schedulemap/) if you can't make it to this one.

Here’s Appleseed's homepage (https://appleseedinfo.org/) where you can read all about Appleseed.  Lucky Gunner wrote up a review of Appleseed (https://www.luckygunner.com/lounge/what-is-project-appleseed/) and a follow up of lessons learned (https://www.luckygunner.com/lounge/top-three-lessons-learned-project-appleseed/) that do a good job of telling you what to expect.

The entry fee is $65 for adults, $25 for kids under 18 and $25 for all military (Active, Guard & Reserves) and police and elected officials.
 
We’ll fire about 600 rounds over two days.  The class is held rain, snow or shine as long as it’s safe to drive.  Dress accordingly.
 
At some Appleseeds centerfire rifles like the AR-15, FAL or any other military pattern rifle are also welcome.  Check the individual event for caliber restrictions. Any rifle action and any sighting system is allowed but the course of fire is designed around removable magazine fed semi-autos.

Shooters of all skill levels, including new shooters, are welcome.  To get the most out of the class, if possible, students should know how to load, unload and clear a minor malfunction with their rifle.

Here are some helpful links and info.

Online registration (https://appleseedinfo.org/schedule/?qstate=KS&state=Kansas)

Ammo - You'll need 600 rounds of ammo for the two day class.  CCI Standard Velocity and CCI Mini-Mag .22LR are two of the most reliable and accurate .22LR rounds you can get that's still reasonably priced.
