Piru Appleseed March 20-21, 2010
« on: February 23, 2010, 12:20:48 AM »
If you been waiting for good weather to attend an Appleseed event in Piru CA, now is the time March 20-21, 2010. The weather should be great. Not to hot not to cold and with a little luck no rain. The range is covered in green grass and the usual dust will not be a problem

Once again its an Appleseed Shoot Weekend here at the Southern California Dedicated Appleseed Range at Mike Thompson's beautiful range complex in Piru CA. (Wes Thompson's Piru Rifle Range, 6700 Holser Canyon, Piru, CA)

A chance to prove your marksmanship mettle against the dreaded AQT, to show mastery of not only your rifle, but also your self!

A chance to hear of the choices and sacrifices the men and women of America made on April 19, 1775 in response to a confiscatory British army.

A chance to again discover your inner Patriot, and to celebrate together with fellow Americans in one of your oldest rights!

You say you've never shot a rifle before? That's one of the things we teach; safe, correct, & efficient operation of your rifle.

You say it's been awhile since your rifle has been out to the range with you, for you to see where both of you are in that "relationship"? Bring it!!

We specialize in making you a better shot with your rifle!! If you do not have one, or if yours fails during the event, we even have .22's to loan out.....just ask before the event, if possible.

We shoot at 25m (82 ft) at a reduced size Army Qualification Target, scaled for 100, 200, 300, & 400 yd shooting.
We do not require the use of specialized gear, it really is a "run what you brung" shoot. We suggest the use of between .22 - 8mm rifles.

Iron sights, Tech-Sights, scopes, semi auto, bolt action, lever action, pump action, if you have it, & want to learn how to shoot it better, bring it!!
Bi-pods are not allowed, we actually teach how to get away from "needing them".....

Plan on shooting about 250 rounds of ammo, per rifle, per day. The range is our classroom, & we very much believe in teaching, & shooting.

All applicable California rifle restrictions are in place, if in doubt to what is allowable, please refer to:

*No detachable box magazines may be brought into state with capacity exceeding ten rounds. All Tubular-magazine 22s are OK.
*"Assault weapons" ban- If you're registered with CA DOJ already, you're fine and can shoot your AK, AR15, G3 etc. with no problem.  Might want to Xerox the DOJ document and keep it in the rifle case.  Do not bring an unregistered "assault weapon" into the state.  Do not bring an unregistered "assault weapon" to the range.  Similarly, unregistered 50 BMG is not legal.

Now, what is this going to cost you? Women, anyone under 21, and active military, reserves, and National Guard are given free admittance. Guys, 21 & older that are not in the military will be charged $45 for one day, $70 for the full weekend if they pre register here: or, it will be $50 for one day, and $80 for the weekend. In addition everyone pays range fees. They are $10/shooter/day.

We recommend you bring: Rifle, ammunition, hat, adjustable sling, shooting jacket, elbow pads, shooting mat (or carpet remnant), bag lunch, water/drink bottles, stapler & staples, pens, chair, and most importantly, a teachable attitude. For more information on what to bring go to click on the link below the picture of the Eagle.

Registration starts promptly @ 8:30 am, both days.
