Title: Midland, TX - Oct. 16-17, 2021 AAR
Post by: Tejas on October 18, 2021, 04:18:15 PM
What a great weekend in Midland, TX – the first Appleseed shoot in this region in over 5 years. We had an good mixture of minutemen, regular militia, and alarm listers – 16 shooters ranging in age from 14 to “I’m not gonna ask”. Seven top-notch instructors, including some that drove as much as 300 miles to be here. Our shoot boss fought off the fatigue that goes with a difficult night, truly rose to the occasion, and started the day with the First Strike. From there we moved to the range, and after warming up with a Hits Count Target jumped into instruction.

This was an outstanding group of students. Attentive, eager to learn, and sociable; with experience levels varying from new to seasoned shooters. Teaching and coaching a group like this is a true pleasure. Just a few of the high points:

The marksmanship related high points are what makes coaching and teaching a pleasure, but the real joy for the instructors was the look in these student eyes as we told the stories that make Appleseed such a special program.

Midland is back!
