GA Rifleman.
« on: March 16, 2010, 07:38:05 PM »
If you live in GA and have shot a Rifleman score stand up and be counted.  Simply put the location and date of your expert AQT.

Then, if you haven't already, let us know where you are at this thread:
http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=4644.0

I'll start:
March 15, 2009.  Toccoa.
With Boltgun71 lineboss. 228.

(Update:  We have 13 so far... O0)

First did it in November in Toccoa with a bolt .22.  Once.

Did it again on March 6/7 in Toccoa with a bolt .22 and a Garand.  Did it more than once and did it with a "real gun".  Now the patch can go on the jacket.   ..:..

Toccoa, Georgia, Nov. 14, 2009.  Son of Martha Shoot Boss, The Guy Instructor, sanderman79 Line Boss (what a trio!), 219 with my 10/22.  I am waiting to sew on my patch until I shoot Rifleman with my centerfire, which I have not had the chance to try up to this point.  But soon, soon... ;)

Same shoot as DrJohn above.  Scored by The Guy: 230 with a 10-22.

Okay, I got to the Radio Show late, after 9, and the audio was a bit choppy at times.  Listened in until the cut came at 10pm.  Sorry I didn't get to the GA board and wave a big howdy.

Col. Barrett and Shaftoe can attest to our most excellent Toccoa Spring-like weather and good shooting.  I finally can say I joined the bolt gun ranks with a 211 and 217 to follow, and was handed the coveted patch by our new good friend and instructor Bama/Derek Underwood.

I'll see if I can cycle the bolt on that Mosin as effectively next shootin' weekend.  I cannot make Augusta, but intend to be in B'ham for April 17-18, or if we can muster a Toccoa shoot I will be there!

I still need hours of IIT time to feel competent, but I want to contribute as much as possible.  Just finding that balance of other chores and the need to be an active participant and comrade to all of you fine Patriot Gentlemen.

I shot rifleman with my .22 in Nov 2009, under The Guy and SoM. Then I did it with my real gun (M1A),pretty sure it was a 223 score, two weeks ago in Tocoaa with Bama and Flathead.

Shot a 222 at the Augusta 20-21 Appleseed, which was my 3rd one. Although at Gaston S.C. I mostly helped my 8 year old daughter enjoy her first one.

Earned my Rifleman patch @ my first Appleseed, yesterday (4/17/10) @ Ramseur, NC (210 & 230).  Shooting my stock Bushmaster AR-15 w/ 1907 sling.  Shoot Boss:  7.62BBQ;  Red Hats:  Lawman, The Kid, Hawkeye, Iron Pony, kd_deadeye;  Orange Hats:  FourIze, HEAVY-CAV.  Impressive crew!

Live in Sandy Springs, GA;  currently working in Robbins, NC, staying in Southern Pines.

Will be seeking an Orange Hat at my next AS!

Good job.  Getting the patch on the first Appleseed is unusual.

Hey Ken!  Good to see you back online!

I don't really remember.  Was before the very first RBC in August 2006.  I was going to the monthly (then) RWVA shoots, did it sometime that year.  These were not Appleseeds, they were Saturday only, 8-5ish.  Usually fired at 25 yards for the first 1/2-2/3 of the day, then to the popups.  That way you had time to practice and improve at the things most people need the most practice on (position, NPOA, 6 steps, cadence) with the fun of popups as an incentive to pay attention so you can move on.  By the time of the 8-06 RBC I had done it a time or three (not that it wasn't a big deal, just that I knew I would do it sooner or later--I believed Fred when he talked about persistence.)  Shot about 2/3 as much as everyone else at the RBC as Fred and Believer had me calling the line and being general gofer.  Traded my M1A for a friends SKS for a day and a half so he could get trigger time with something else.  (BTW, my AQT scores dropped from 230s with M1A to 145 (!) with SKS.  I took that as a challenge and was able to work it up to 190s before Fred "suggested"  &) we trade back.  That's why I say that a stock SKS makes a perfect training rifle...)

That year (that wonderful year!) I went through 1500 rounds Hirtenberger and about 1000 rounds South African 7.62x51.  Hope I can do that again someday...

Although he's not a member of the forum, my youngest son David Jr. scored a 229 at the first Minerva Ohio shoot two years ago next weekend. George T was shootboss. It seems like yesterday.

Today, Memorial Day 2010, just 2 years later, he left for basic training in the US Army. He is the 2nd of 3 sons to have served. While proud of him, I miss him already and will pray for his safety every day.

Toccoa Sept. 11-12, '10. Scored 219 backed up with a 229.  Sanderman79 scored the targets.  Only shot on Sunday and just 3 AQTs.  I should have shot a couple more AQTs to try for that 237 I'm looking for but I could not resist the opportunity to try the steel gong at 300 yds.

Craig in Conley, GA

ps: still can't remember everyone's name but thanks to you all for the help and encouragement.  This was just my second Appleseed.

Thanks for *your* help and being willing to field the orange hat tossed at you.  We do hope we can keep it on you---and we want to see that 237.  How's that for setting the bar high?

Sanderman scored me as well at Toccoa, 217.

Best September 11th of my life!
