If my count is correct that is just 27.  Surely there are more than that.  Do we have any records that indicate how many in GA have shot a rifleman score?

It might be possible and see for the AAR's the number of Riflemen, but for an exact number I have no idea. I think the average is 2 or 3 per shoot.

Remember, part of being a rifleman is getting involved.  Going through the steps to post on this board is a great way to show you've earned it.  The 27 here have earned it.  May the keep earning it.

Your version of "ineffective" does not necessarily reflect the truth....
Having been "ineffectively" taught to the Rifleman Standard and having been "ineffectively" taught to teach others to the Rifleman Standard, I believe I prefer the "ineffective" over the other choice.

Waco, 12-11-10--shot 212. Did better 'n that in my mind, but the paper don't lie. Still room for improvement, and I won't be satisfied until I shoot a 250...hopeless optimist I guess.

Major thanks to Craig for having the gumption to introduce me to Appleseed during a business call. Just goes to show that ya never know when those "seeds" ya cast about may take root...

And thanks also to John, Fred, and the rest of the red & orange hats that gave me instruction, correction, encouragement, and information...all because they volunteered to do something that meant something to them. Seems to me that the spirit that animated you guys and gals to do this must be a lot like the spirit that animated others to do the same a few hundred years ago...go figger...

Did the tacco shoot in november 2010.  Shot 190's to high of 205 all day long.  Did the Waco shoot this Saturday (Dec 11 2010) and on my first AQT scored a 238.  Backed it up with a 235.  Both tests were done with a friends bolt action 22.  I'm seriously considering becoming an instructor, it's a fantastic experience and cause.  Thanks guys for letting me be a part of it!

Toccoa Mud Bowl, Spring 2008

236 and 226 back to back after finally borrowing two mags that wouldn't jam after 2 rnds.

SoM was shoot boss, TracerFire ran the pistol pit.

Flathead helped me dial in my first kit built FAL on the KD afterward.

Once my twins get a bit older, I'll be out there again as an IIT.

My first Appleseed on 9/3/11 I used my bolt action .22 and shot a 212 scored by DrJohn. Followed in October with my centerfire and a 217.

I qualified at my first Appleseed, at the range we own, on July 9 - 10, 2011. I finally qualified on day 2 after TnColonel convinced me to use a REAL sling instead of the nylon one I had on my Bushmaster Varminter .223. I shot a 223, with a .223, on the next AQT. Since then my 12 year old daughter Regan shot a 227 at Manchester, TN which of course required that I get my rifle out of the truck and shoot a 229.  Now, if I can just get my wife out of the 190's we'll have a whole family of Riflemen.

"Darkness is returning to Paradise. Are you ready?" Johnny Drake

"From the desert has come a voice crying in the wilderness, and his name is John. Johnny Drake to be more precise. But ask his disciples and they will tell you his mission is no less defined than the mission of John the Baptist, who first introduced the Light from heaven to the world over two thousand years ago. The multitudes listened to John, who told them that Jesus of Nazareth was the Way to God. Then Herod toke John's head.
  Now the question begs us: Will the world listen to Johnny Drake? And who will take his head?"   Quote from the book, "Sinner" by Ted Dekker

November 2011 at Toccoa, GA.  Dr. John was Shoot Boss.  Scored 217 with a 10/22...I think.  Now it's time to move up to a .30 and shoot Rifleman!  I tried this past weekend with the Mosin...alas no.  I will presevere!
