Title: Caliber restrictions
Post by: dewritten on December 12, 2019, 09:09:16 PM
Hello,

I am in the early stages of research needed to attend an Appleseed event.

I live in Dallas, and would likely attend one of the single day events in Ft. Worth.

I found a reference here stating that only rifles .32 cal/8mm and lower are allowed. https://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=8162.0

Does this apply to pistol caliber carbines?
I have a 9mm carbine, will I have to bring something else?

A 9mm carbine is fine at 25 meter events as long as the range isn't 22 rimfire only (which Ft. Worth is).  So, for Ft. Worth, you would need to use a different rifle.  Perhaps a loaner could be provided.  Check with the shoot boss for that event.

Thanks, Tennessee Beast, for responding.  I missed this inquiry.

Please send me an email at debbie@padraic.com or call 818-991-6982.  We will need to contact the range as there cattle on the land behind the berm.

Thank you, CarrollMS.  I've reviewed and will direct other Texas Instructors to this thread as well.

Eventually someone is going to bring a 350 Legend to an event.

It would be easy to make the argument that the larger calibers are safer.  If I shoot over the berm with a M1 Garand, that bullet will go down range well past 1000 yards.  If I shot a Bushmaster 450 over that same berm, it will likely not make it past 500 yards.
