Welcome!  Glad you found us and I am glad you are interested in the program.  I live in the north-central area of Florida and will be at the St. Augustine and Bunnell shoots in the coming months.  The project is growing and we hope that you will have shoots near you soon.  If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to PM me and I'll help you any way I can.  Since you are in Largo, you are near to the Myakka City events and not too far from Starke and even Hernando.  Great venues and with frequent events.  Now that the end of the heat of summer is in sight, the fun gets even better.  See you on the trail!

The American Constitution is remarkable for its simplicity; but can only suffice a people habitually correct in their actions, and would be utterly inadequate to the wants of a different nation.  Change the domestic habits of the Americans, their religious devotion, and their high respect for morality, and it will not be necessary to change a single letter in the Constitution in order to vary the whole form of their government. - Francis Grund 1837

Hello fellow Floridian Appleseeders !!

I just attended my first Appleseed in Pensacola this past weekend at the Escambia Muzzle Loaders range, and it was a lot of fun finally learning proper shooting skills  ;D

Currently, the only rifle I own is my remington bolt action 770 30-06, so I brought that thinking it would be great to learn with  ++)  I was deservedlyteased just a little bit, and was referred too as the "Buffalo Hunter"   :D  But thanks to kindness of the shoot boss, I was able to learn on an extra 22 rifle he had with him  O0

The local Spring Hill range here doesn't really lend itself to practicing the prone position, but I can't wait to try out what I learned !!  I may pick up a 22 rifle, but I sorta had my hopes set on a M1 Garand as my next rifle purchase  8)


Anywho, just wanted to introduce myself and say HEY  ^:)^

(didn't want to call you by your initials)

a CMP Garand is a wonderful choice, also a bit pricey to feed while you are polishing up your techniques. if you build an LTR, you will save ammo money that can be used to purchase an M1 sooner. Assuming Orest and the boys don't run out before you order one  >:D >:D >:D

welcome to the forum and program!
But, the price they paid to win us our liberty? Few of us can comprehend it. Even fewer of us would want - or even be willing - to pay it. But all of us should know - at least - about it.

Here Here!  Welcome to the forum, Buffalo Hunter!  I wasn't able to make it to the event in Pensacola this past weekend, but I have heard from many sources that it was a lot of fun.  There is an open thread in which you can relate your first Appleseed experience, found here: http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=20586.0

Please, feel free to poke around a bit, join in the discussions, and if you are so inclined, volunteer to help out!  We've got a good crew of people around here, and would welcome any assistance you could provide.  PM me for details.

As always, if you have any questions, just ask!

Howdy from the East Coast of Florida, near Melbourne. I think I first heard about the Appleseed Project in a Mas Ayoob article in Backwoods Home magazine. Can't wait to gather up the young'uns and others in the clan and attend one of the weekends.

Sure am glad that there's a lot of folks that are thinking along the same lines about gun ownership and about this great nation of ours.

Greetings from Jax.  I'll be at St. Augustine December 8 and 9 and look forward to seeing what this is all about.

One question, around what time of day does it usually end?

Wow, I just noticed the previous post is a year old.  What's up with that???

Welcome Contra!

End times for Appleseeds vary, but we usually try to wind things down around 5pm on both days.  Sometimes sooner, sometimes later, depending on the students and their willingness to continue. 

The crew that works the St. Augustine events is top shelf, so be ready to learn!

I'm hoping to get to a Clermont shot first since it is the closest to my house.  After my first shoot I will possibly travel to others.

9mm4545 (Bruce) should have the 2013 schedule ready to go here pretty soon, and will surely post it up on the forum here.  You won't be able to sign up for an event until we get the EventBrite scheduling system ready, but you should at least know when the events are to take place within the next couple of weeks.

I'll poke Bruce with a stick tomorrow, and see what the story is with the Clermont events; he may already have the dates for 2013, just hasn't posted them yet...

Howdy from the  east coast of Florida.  I attended the Palm Bay/Malabar Appleseed on April 20/21.  It was my first Appleseed, but certainly won't be my last.

I am a member at PMRPC, where the Appleseed was held.

The Appleseed poster from the Palm Bay shoot is now displayed at a store in Titusville!  It is a mil-surp store, Gear-Up, on SR 50.  They sell stuff to shooter types, and the poster is generating interest.

Have been talking up the shoot, especially over the weekend at the Melbourne gun show.  Several locals are now wanting to attend June AS at PMRPC, provided they can find more .22 LR ammo.   Have also been talking it up at PMRPC when I went out practicing with my new Tech-Sight on Saturday, and was getting it dialed in.  Sure beats the stock 10/22 carbine sights.  No problems removing old front sight.  Liquid Wrench and a brass punch made it easy.  My group sizes are much improved!  I shot a practice AQT, and saw my score go up considerably from my previous best at the AS shoot.  Plan to get more range time this weekend, practicing "400 yd" shots.  Will no doubt talk AS up more then!

Have also been talking AS up with my Titusville and Orlando buddies at work.  We should see an increase in attendance for June at PMRPC, barring a hurricane!

Hello fellas, I just shot my first appleseed today. What a blast it was. Thanks to the instructors who were out there today, I have never shot this style before and they were a great help! I shot 213 on my first AQT with my 10/22! I am hooked and look forward to doing it again soon.

Welcome Floridanative to the Appleseed Project. Glad you enjoyed our 'SEED at Myakka and your welcome on the line anytime.

The reason you nailed the AQT was your positive attitude and your ability to take in the information, turn it around and put it back on the paper.
Your right, the Appleseed team there this weekend at the Manatee Gun Club was top notch  ~~:), except for that tall ol' guy with the porn-star mustache.
