Good times!

On Saturday we had two contest winners for the high AQT score award:

The Menace CF high score
Falcon793 RF high score

On Sunday four of us all held two MOA groups on the 1000 yard range on a 24"gong!
Please join us next time.

If it happens, it will be one day of IBC, followed by a two-day shoot where you have the chance to apply the skills and principles learned.

How long is the IBC expected to last?

     The Patriot Pistol Class/Course (PPC) is very much a tempting carrot.

After Action Reports / AAR - Annapolis - December 7, 2019

We had 8 folks on the line for a cold, but not Winterseed-worthy, December clinic at AAFG in Annapolis.

This was our first clinic in a while that was all adults and while all were well versed in operating their specific firearm, all realized the challenge of Appleseed on the first Red Coat. This was also one of the first Appleseeds I have been to where irons and 1x red dots (prismatic, holographic, etc.) dominated the line - only 2 scopes in the whole crew.

You know it is going to be a great event when you get someone in period-dress and with a great store of historical knowledge. Mark was also a committed shooter with his stock Ruger iron sights and was able to score in the 170s on his first AQT ever using Kentucky windage. That is very impressive shooting. Mark was scouting out Project Appleseed for a potential private event. Hope you come back with the whole crew next year!

We had one Rifleman - Kirby scored a 217- Huzzah! Glad to have you back at an event after several years away. Obviously not too much rust.

But everyone else showed great improvement and all AQT scores were in the 170-190 range. Every person had their best and worst stages - some folks were experienced standing shooters and were nearly perfect in that stage, but would then drop a bunch of shots later. Others were the exact opposite. A few folks commented that they had not shot prone since they were kids.

We recommend a lot of dry fire practice to truly get a feel for the positions and your interface with the rifle. 100 dry fire "rounds" for every live fire round. Most importantly, practice your six steps and NPOA establishment and adjustment during dry fire. Next time, you will probably break through!

There were very few equipment issues but we are always available for questions on sling attachment points and sight upgrades here on the forums.

Thanks to red hat ABCgarand for his individual coaching and demonstrations - an honor to work with our most experienced red hat.

Pictures will be available at our Maryland Appleseed Facebook page soon:

You were all a joy to work with and I really hope to see folks at at a future Maryland Appleseed - events for 2020 are already posted here:

Hey, New Mexico!

Since we had an IBC in El Paso in the summer, how about we look at an IBC in the Albuquerque area in the spring?  They generally run as a Saturday/Sunday affair.

We'll need someone local to help recommend venues etc, AND.....

as an extra goodie to sweeten the pot, Ghostring has offered to come in a day early and conduct a Patriot Pistol class on Friday, provided a range can be found and ya'll are available.    ^:)^

We'll need to setting on dates, and a venue for the IBC.  If any of you locals are willing and able to help with the venue, please make yourself known!

Looking forward to hearing from you all,

Would love to (and would also like to get back on the Appleseed trail), but law school will be back in session by then. Hoping to make some shoots either free weekends next spring or in the summer.

Thanks for reading my posts and for responding! I'll make sure to take some pictures next week, I know a couple of us at least will be shooting service rifles slinged up!

Indiana has some serious Appleseeders too, I'm sure there are some shoots scheduled there soon.

Merry Christmas!

PS, on this date, 7 December 1941, the Japanese Imperial Navy attacked the US Navy base at Pearl Harbor, propelling us into the 2nd World War.

I just realized that you close your weekly posts with the same open invitation. I further realized that my immediate response is always the same...I WISH I COULD!!!

Any chance you’re gonna take your shoots on the road? ; ) Just kidding. I know you are not. But if you did, may I suggest you start in Central Indiana. I would love to shoot some AQTs and KDs with some dangerous ol’ Riflemen.

Oh, and how about posting pics once in a while of these shoots? I’m sure they would be very instructive.

Happy Holidays to the entire AS community - old hands and newbies alike!
