First off, thanks to the instructors for the help. Thanks to the club for the range. Thanks to the shooters who ultimately make all Appleseeds a success. We learned together, ate together, worked together, and even had a little play time together (balloon toss).

Our success can be measured. 22 shooters made improvements from the first red coat to the last, 4 shot rifleman score (one with a bolt gun), 5 shooters hit 190's, 1 rifleman reaffirmed his skill, 2 asked for the orange hat, 1 will help out in other Appleseed matters O0

Don't forget about Team Concord who went 2 and 0 in the competitions for prizes. Go team Concord! :--- (Are we going to stand here while they burn our homes?) Who would have thought shooting out a TV would be in a marksmanship class and not out behind Bubba's shed. :)

To any shooters who may be thinking twice about the CMP Garands it's not too late for me to fill out a certificate for you, just PM me for it.

Our known distance shoot was only 200 yds but still worthwhile so thanks to jrturbo because without the second Red Hat we couldn't have done it.

Like I said at the shoot, all you shooters don't be strangers now. You will be hard pressed to find better quality people than those you met here.

Honestly, this was my honor to run this shoot for all involved and for that I thank the Lord God.
See you on the trail,
JoeZ

PS  pics will follow so keep checking in.

I believe that.   The threads may be worn on either the dog or the pinion.  It happens when you get old..... your screws get loose!  Don't locktite it.  Either go with Joe's suggestion to put a little teflon tape or replace the parts.

Hey Smokey Joe great to see you!

Also, I just love the picture of our shooter with the lever 308 smashing away at the 200.

I would like to say thanks for all of the great instruction and encouragement that I've had or the last 3 appleseeds.The initial invite from ashoot,e-mail encouragement from old glory,all the instructors along the way (yes i have ordered my own shooting mat) and jrturbo and muskyjerk helping me reach-out with confidence and tweak my form even more.A special thanks to my wife who couldn't listen to me shoot all the time without shooting abit herself and my 4 and 5 year old that would run the stopwatch for me.I'm all about making our world and country a better place and plan to help out with the appleseed program however i can...you made a believer outta me.(this is Rick the guy with the red bandana and electric tape on his gun)

Great pics everyone.

Welcome aboard reckless rick.

 If anyone wants to shoot at 200 I live 10 minutes from the Boone and go there quit a bit. Team Acton, I should think you would want to sharpen up a bit after Saturday's showing :-[

Rick, figures you would have electrical tape on your rifle.    :D ;D

It's time your wife gets in on the fun. 

See you on the trail.......... ..:..

I would like to thank all the instructors and especially JoeZ for making this a memorable event for all.  Way to go Guys.  WE at Appleseed have come a long way in 1 year.
