Title: Appleseed Ramseur KD Event AAR – August 9-10
Post by: Catch-10-22 on August 15, 2019, 11:03:53 AM
I know there is a formal AAR in that part of the forums, but I wrote up a waaaayyy too long AAR with a few pictures for MDShooters: https://www.mdshooters.com/showpost.php?p=5637210&postcount=75 in case anyone in MD is interested.

Thank you so much to BeSwift for subbing in as shoot boss for Annapolis so I could attend. Sounds like that was an amazing event as well!

I would be willing to run a similar type of event for the MD crew at Ramseur, if there's enough interest.

Probably later in the year (spoken, November and later); just let me know what's in the realm of the possible and we can make magic happen.

And by the way, with a write up like that, you’re writing the AAR next time.  ;D

But I didn’t know how it ended!

By the way, did you guys do the night shoot on Saturday?

Yep. As advertised.

The Wolfhound was running his dedicated 22lr upper out to at least 200, and Jordan actually came out and was engaging with her mama’s rifle that far as well.  DeadAnt and Alex were in, I think Vaportrace was out earlier running a 6.5 Creedmoor. 

Shame you couldn’t stay.  But like I said, we can set something like this up for the MD crew - I leave that for you and B to figure what works best for your cadre.

Indeed we did.  I started before it was dark with my .22 upper and rang steel.  300 yards with a .22LR is a lot of fun!  Once it was fully dark the ARs came out and the steel rang again.  The lights seem to have sagged a bit and only really illuminate to the 300 yard line.

You guys are killing me - sounds awesome.

I ended up driving back home that night after dinner, arriving at 1230am. Was on a plane to London Sunday afternoon and back home on Monday night. Similar to Monkey, no sleep for a few days but was absolutely worth it.

Brian and I will discuss and see if we can rally the troops. I think it might be a good incentive for some of our repeat Rifleman to take hats. Shannon and Chris are obvious potential anchor tenants as well.

Really appreciate the offer and thanks again for the invite!

That was a very nice write-up. Lots of wisdom in your summaries. Thanks for taking the time.
