Hello all,
Thanks again to the Daniel Boone Club for use of it's range and this time thanks for the use of all the loaner rifles. Thanks to the shooters for coming out for a dip in the American Heritage pool. Thanks to all the instructors who came out to help and last but not least, thank God for the weather and opportunity to help fellow Americans. As always...pics will follow.

This was a very un usual Appleseed.  I believe all the young men have never heard of a gun culture, let alone never had the opportunity to shoot a rifle.  If we can get them for one more AS, who knows what fruit that will bring.

They were all so polite and respectful. I hope they can come again.
