Palmetto State Rifleman Check In HERE!

Every other state has a thread for their Riflemen to check in. So just as a way to keep up with you, check in here with your name, location, where you made Rifleman at, etc.

This is for Riflemen who are not yet an Instuctor.  We'll keep you updated with events in SC, etc.

Blume up here in Greenville,   I made Rifleman on March 4th in Gaston...

I'm hoping I can make it over to Anderson on the 26th... but probably won't be able to do both days... so will be a walk in.

I'll only check in here about every week or so...
Made rifleman on my first practice AQT
then went down hill from there......

We (Larry & Karen - Hartsville, SC) attended the Oct. 3 & 4, 2009 Appleseed in Gaston, SC. Lots of good teaching and practice but didn't achieve Riflemen until the March 6 & 7, 2010 event in Gaston, SC. Larry shot Rifleman on March 6 and I shot Rifleman on March 7. Great experience all around with great instruction. We recommend Appleseed every chance we get!

John Williams
Greenville, SC
Shot Rifleman (217) at Lima, Ohio, October 3, 2010

My brother, who lives near Lima, talked me into driving up to Ohio and attending an Appleseed with him.  I am glad I did.  It rained all day Saturday, was cold, windy, wet, and muddy.  Sunday was the same minus the rain.  I had a great time, and I learned a lot, and met a lot of great people.  As one of the Police Officers that attended posted "Missing your target in the rain while laying in a puddle of mud sucks.  Hitting your target in the rain while laying in a puddle of mud is lots of fun."

I saw in an earlier post on one of the other South Carolina threads that blume357 had approached Greenville Gun Club about having an Appleseed there.  Is there any news on this?  I live in Greenville County and an Appleseed in Greenville would be great.

Has anyone approached the DNR Range in Liberty about having an Appleseed there?

I have been talking Appleseed up with my friends since I got home and already have two interested, plus both of my boys are dieing to attend (have to wait for soccer season to end for them)

I am interested in helping, maybe even becoming an IIT.

Nice job!  I believe we are going to have another event in the fall in Gaston so come on out and bring some friends!  Or if you are anxious, head over to Augusta and enjoy the nice facility and hospitality there.

Tom from Blythewood - shot Rifleman (215) at Gaston, SC on 28 Oct 2012, despite not completing the 2nd Stage.   
Previously attended the Appleseed (Deathseed) at Gaston on 01 July 2012.

Looking forward to being able to start paying back to Appleseed by picking up an orange hat.

Thanks to Mantis, Taz, DrJohn, and all the rest of the instructors for giving me a LOT to continue to work on to bring these groups down.

Neil from Chapin.  Shot Rifleman (225) on April 10, 2013 in Gaston, SC.  "Cheated and used a scope."  Took it off and re-qualified with irons on April 11 with a 216. 

This was my 2nd Appleseed.  Both were great! 

Thanks to all the instructors who volunteer for this program!

I finally made it over the hump to get an official 220 to requal with irons.  I've scored a few 209s but initially made it over with a scope.  Thanks to Taz for loaning me some .22 to be repaid in liquid form with a beverage of his choice!   :)

A rifleman is a rifleman. Using a scope is not cheating. A scope does not improve your ability to shoot. It can improve your ability to identify and see a target.

If you are an instructor, please stop telling people that they are "cheating" if they are using a scope. You are doing a disservice to the shooter and to the program. A good shooter with decent eyesight will shoot the same score (or almost the same) whether using a scope or irons. A shooter with eye issues or even just middleaged eyes, may have major issues with front sight focus, and by using a scope (where the target and reticle are on the same focal plane) be able to alleviate those issue. A shooter with severe astigmatism may never be able to qualify without a scope. Regardless each of these individuals is a rifleman and none of them cheated.

I have shot 100's on stage 4 of the AQT with a cheap 4x scope and shot 98's on it with irons and glasses. I have shot 3 inch 10 shot groups at 200 yards with a .22 as well. But  I have never told a student that he or she cheated because they used a scope.

The reason that it is good to have an instructor be able to shoot above a 210 with both scope and irons isn't about shooting. It is about being able to teach and to work with the shooters to help them. That same instructor should also be able to rig a web or 1907 sling, to shoot a rifleman score at KD, and to understand that position, comes before NPOA comes before resipiratory pause, comes before trigger control. Finally, a good instructor watches the student, his muzzle and the results before offering up advice.
