Attending my first AS event next weekend in Toccoa Georgia looking forward to the shooting and the history, my Grandfather 7 gens back served in the Maryland Militia and was present at the surrender of Cornwallis. His son served in the War of 1812. Two of his grandsons served with Company K 62nd NC in the War between the States and my Grandfather served with the Army in WWII. Finally I served four years in the US Army Infantry and am a history buff as well.

Lunchbox,

Just wanted to say Hi.  I got started in AS last year at the end of the year and I just love the program.  Ramseur is a great range (you might have the chance test out what you learn at 25 yds on actual distance at Ramseur) and I predict you will have a great time!

Take care,

Sadman

We are looking forward to seeing you. It's a great range.

Walter -- thanks for the welcome!  You can call me Keane (my middle name).  I haven't attended any events and don't really know much about Appleseed but I'm researching & learning & chatting online with Mike Stineman.  I live just north of Charlotte in the booming metropolis of Concord.  I may need to go pick up a new rifle, though, because my only .22LR is a 40 year old lever action.

Keane,
 
That is excellent, Mike is really good guy who knows a TON about shooting.. Dont let a rifle stand in the way of coming.  Plenty of instructors have loaners.  The 2012 schedule for the Ramseur site was just published.  We should have the Charlotte area shoots scheduled sometime in January.  Pick one and sign up  :-)

Hi there TIEfighter77!  I was one of the orange hats at Ramseur this weekend.  I hope that you will visit us again!  Be sure to do that 7th step (bring some friends)!!!

Cheers,

David,
 
glad your first Appleseed was enjoyable for you...  Did you make Rifleman on Sunday ?  Are you planning on coming back in 2012.  We would love to see you come again and bring a friend with you..

EscalatorBuilder,

It was good to see you again.  I hope to see you in the new year on the Appleseed trail.  I'm not going to be able to make the Jan Appleseed but I will be there for Feb and subsequent events.  I'm personally looking forward to the Appleseed event in April as it has a special connection!!!

Cheers,

Sadman

Sadman and Iron Pony,
I am attending Ramseur on Jan 15 with a friend from Virginia.  I unfortunately did not get my riffleman patch in December, as my gun was severely "key holed" on Dec. 3.  Luckily Lawrence had an extra gun for me to shoot on Sun., Dec 4 and I had a much more memorable experience.  I have my gun back from Ruger and intend to come down on Sunday, Jan 15 using the ROC program.  However, I am not exactly sure how to sign up using this program.  I am intending on getting the blue icicle riffleman patch with my buddy Floyd, as I believe, Iron pony said it would be possible to get, due to frigid conditions this weekend.

Hope to see you all there (minus the Sadman).
