It was an honor and a privilege to be among so many patriots this Patriots Day.  As PHenry said, it was a Great Patriots Day.

Some noticeable firsts, too.  I believe this was also the first Nationwide Victory Volley that was broadcast live on Facebook.  Check this out on either the Florida Appleseed Facebook page, or on the Project Appleseed Kentucky page at and, if you haven't seen this broadcast, you are missing a treat.

For those that patched this weekend, congratulations!  For those that just missed getting a Rifleman's Patch, do not be too hard on yourself.  You now have the proper tools in your 'mental toolbox' to practice what you learned this weekend. Dry fire practice and some live fire practice and you will soon have earned a Rifleman Patch.

It was my honor to be with so many old friends and new friends this weekend.  Remember the Six Steps to Firing a Shot, and the Seventh Step of telling your friends, family, and co-workers about Appleseed.

The long drive was definitely worth it.  HUZZAH!

It was great to get back onto the Appleseed Trail with the first shoot of the year at Piqua. This was an incredible weekend spent with a wonderful group of Americans! 

The Buckeye Trapper started the history presentations in the morning with a little pre-history of what led up to the Revolution. Rattlehead presented the first strike and Chad did an excellent job with the second and third strikes.

We then spent the morning sorting out minor equipment issues while zeroing rifles, and going over all the basic Appleseed marksmanship instruction; we spent plenty of time to get everyone on track, which paid off throughout the rest of the weekend. 

On the first AQT of the afternoon we had two rifleman’s scores; Greg was shooting a bolt action, but that didn’t keep him from scoring a 222 (then reconfirmed on the next AQT with an impressive 237), and eleven year old Haley Beth reconfirmed her rifleman status with a score of 212. On the second AQT, Todd joined the ranks of riflemen by shooting a 224, congratulations to all!

A team 100-yard shoot was held Sunday afternoon. Shooters were divided into teams of three with twenty rounds each, then given forty five seconds to go from standing to prone and score do as many hits as possible into a full size silhouette; congratulations to team two with about 45 hits.

Thanks go to the instructors of the event, The Buckeye Trapper, Coyote 217, Rattlehead, and Chad. Also thanks to Blue Hat, Haley Beth, for helping out on Saturday.

Wreck: Yes, the mat is advisable. The "grass" is pretty sandy and sparse. Also, some red/fire ants. Sorry. No red clay to make you feel at home.

It was another great Appleseed at BVRPC!

Ethan and I are sincerely thankful for the instructors & IIT's sharing their time and knowledge.

Also there were a great group of fellow students who did some impressive shooting.

I have to say it was great that so many serious shooters showed up to keep me thinking they were there for my help. ::) Full lines at Douglas Ridge are great to see and be a part of. Thank you Kimber Custom for the sound system, my voice wouldn't have reached well without it, now if I can just remember to put the switch to the ON position. :-[ I would like to note that so many of the shooters came to be with others at an Appleseed and the Seventh Stepping really works, keep bringing friends and family and always tell the tales about the event.  :sb:  When you really get good, volunteer to help out the RWVA and Appleseed events. I look forward to seeing you all again on the range promoting Liberty, history and the tradition. O0
I'm in!
Patriots Day was celebrated at the NRAWC and 13 of America’s finest citizens showed up to be
 imersed in the founding history of our nation on April 19th, 1775 and learn the fundamentals of precision marksmanship.
 It was our marksmanship skills that birthed our nation. Below is a group pic showing both instructors and shooters.

This event was awesome, in part due to the great American patriots who showed up!

At the famous Jeff Cooper Range:

A big thank you to Kholin, AhhShoot, Slothman, Steel Dragon, Fox-WI, Beek and Winnequah Gun Club!

It's been over 25 years since I shot a rifle for a score, not just to put meat on the table. You taught me not only how to enjoy the sport again (and how to get rid of some bad habits) but also many lessons about our history I didn't know.

I look forward to attending another Appleseed soon.
