Santa Barbara Ca. April 17-18 Appleseed Event!!
« on: April 04, 2010, 09:16:54 PM »
This Appleseed will be held on April 17-18, 2010, at the Winchester Canyon Gun Club in Santa Barbara California.

Come out and joins us and celebrate Patriots Day with us. This event will include a volley at 1PM that will coincide with over 100 other Appleseeds across the country.

                      You just bought a new rifle? We will show you how to be safe, efficient and accurate with it.

                      You say you've never fired a rifle before?? No problem!! We will train you how to safely, efficiently and correctly operate a rifle.

                      You don't even have a rifle of your own? Again, not a problem. Make a note in the sign up comments and we will try our arrange a loaner rifle for you.

                      Rusty? Been awhile since you last seriously shot your favorite rifle. Come knock the rust off and give the equipment a serious
                      shake out.

                      You really know how to shoot? Come see if you can measure up to the standards set by the Rifleman heritage. Who knows you might
                      stay and decide to help pass those skill on.

Now, what is this going to cost you? Women, all under 21s, 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:

If you just show up at the door, it will be $50 for one day, and $80 for the weekend.

The above are the Appleseed fees. In addition there are the daily range fees for Winchester Canyon Gun Club which are $12/shooter, 17 & under $3/shooter, Range members $4/each

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.

Iron sights, Tech-Sights, scopes, semi auto, bolt action, lever action, pump action, if you have it and want to learn how to shoot it, bring it!!

Be sure that there is some way to attach a sling to your rifle. If you don't have a sling we can probably loan one if you have a swivel stud to attach it to!

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

We gather at lunch on site to explain the importance of April 19, 1775, the beginnings of our country and our Heritage.

Plan to bring a bag lunch both days. It is a long drive back to town, so come prepared to spend the full day.

Come learn about the choices made by the men and women of Colonial America and their response to an oppressive King. See if you can see any comparisons that might be drawn between then and now. See what your own choices are. They did that for us then, so we don't have to do it today.....

Please arrive for check in by 8:30am.

We recommend you bring: Sling; shooting jacket; elbow pads; shooting mat (or carpet remnant); water/drink bottles; teachable attitude; Bring plenty of water; If you have shade/popups bring those plus some means to anchor them against wind gusts.

We have only 24 spaces available, so hurry and get yourself pre-registered, so you do not miss out on this opportunity!!

We'll see you there!!
