I have checked and the fiance and I will be there.

I do not have ammo for a period rifle, but I have been wanting to try my VZ58 at known distance. Should be interesting.

We might give rockers to the original 9.9.9 crew (afore mentioned dudes being among them) as long as they are there in spirtit, and I think you arlready are mah brutha!

No child care available...guess I'm bringing my daughter.

I'm planning on camping out Thursday (and prob Friday) night.  Justin had brought up reviewing KD that night and perhaps in the morning.

Do we still need to be "non magnetic" at Piru in November?

Ok day before check.

This KD day is still going to happen? Ya or Na
Can we use bimetal ammo?
Should I bring anything for the BBQ?

Does anyone want to carpool?  I will be coming out of Azusa off the 210 and passing Monrovia, Pasadena, Montrose and a few other hamlets. 
I plan on being on the freeway by 5am to beat Friday morning traffic.
Should I bring an Easy Up?
Are there items still needed to be brought?

I want to carpool, unfortunately I will be getting the last few zzzzzzzzzzz's before I have to get up for work. I checked and yes Bob, I do have to work on your birthday. Can you believe it? Have a Blessed Happy Birthday Bob and Mike.

Happy Veteran's Day and a huge THANK YOU to All you Veterans that will be out enjoying a freedom that you have helped maintain. And as far as Active Duty Military, Thank You as well.  :bow:

Okey- back from doing prep alllllll day.

Magnetic Ammo Question: have not asked mike, my self. Anybody know if there's ever an exception up there?
I only checked in just now, maybe too late to call him.

I am gonna leave west LA around 0630, heading for the range. I'll get an answer.

Food is covered (Kool's BBQ), drinks somewhat,and desert is NOT.

If you wanna bring side dishes based on this menu:

Santa Maria Style BBQ (Dry rub Tri-tip)
Corn Tortilla's con Queso
Pinto Beans
Corn off the cob
Fried Potatos
Monster/Coke'/Seltzer Water
.

I have 20 stakes and 8 Single shooter target backers, that plan is to get there by 0800 and have two set at each KD station. Run all stages concurrent. At that set up, 8 shooters on the line. Expanding as man power and materials are available.


There's gonna be plenty of fun, and plenty of chores to go around. Come early, stay late and partake of as much of either as it suits you. 

To all the Piru bootcamp alumni, this is especially for you. You been running shoots and going all over serving this thing: Come have some fun. Come be in the group photo.

We gonna shoot.We gonna eat. We gonna fellowship.

Think of the guys who made sure  it is possible we can still  do it.

Thank you all for coming together on 2 weeks notice. I can't tell you how happy this makes me.

See you in 12 and a half hours!

Plus a few supernumeries, I'm sure.

And yes, Mike got the big invite. I hope to lure him over with savory Tri tip fumes.

Thanks for the pictures...  I think I finally realized something:

Great to shoot with y'all.  Big thanks to koolaid for the mighty nice BBQ, and bigger thanks to Mike Thompson for all his support.  Doesn't get much better than that.

Thank YOU all- It's hard to remember sometimes, that we are not alone in this or in life. Nice chance to gather and break bread.

Thanks to my friend Jason for coming out and running the BBQ (hey- he's from texas, right?)
I was asked to run more of these (two a year), so please be on the look out for the NEXT one on MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND.

Till then
See you on the trail......

Yep, good stuff, Thanks Kool, and Jason haven't had bbq that good in quite a while!

It is always good to see tho 'ol familiar faces again and really cool to meet those that I haven't yet had the pleasure.

As for goneJhonny (sp?), nice show bro, next time I'll probably have almost as much fun just spotting your AQT's.

Thanks to all!

I am at a loss for words that would accurately express my gratitude for you guys allowing me to experience this fine day with you. If thought out correctly, "overwhelmed" would probably be in there somewhere... Appleseed has had a profound impact on my life. A few of you were some of my very first instruction at Appleseed, a small handful I've met along the trail... many of you I'd only ever heard about in story and myth. Literally everything I've grown to know about rifles, marksmanship, our heritage and being a Rifleman - I've learned from those that most of you guys taught at one point or another.

It's an interesting morning when you show up to shoot... having never shot the intended COF's, surrounded by people that all seem to have known each other for years - knowing in your heart that your performance will not only be the judge of you, but the judge of YOUR instructors by THEIR instructors before them! It's even more interesting to be walking out to post targets, awkwardly muttering the SHF's, 6-steps & the NPOA drill repeatedly under your breath - trying desperately to not get caught / heard. Fortunately, the last on my mantra was to "trust your NPOA" (well... that, and you'd better not shoot anyone else's targets)!

A KD pin & a 1k patch later, I hope I did right by you guys. I gave it my all and will wear them proud!


Beyond the shooting, I got to witness a great many people who all seemed to share a truly unique bond - that were truly happy to see & encourage each other. I hope you guys realize how rare & special that is... no BS, no drama, no macho... just a Rifleman's Quarter (read: half) Mile and some wicked BBQ!

It was a long one for me, as I stayed in Piru to IIT the shoot up the road over the weekend (Dano bumped me up to an IIT3!). Still more trudging to do, but I've no plans on slowing down anytime soon...

As for goneJhonny (sp?), nice show bro, next time I'll probably have almost as much fun just spotting your AQT's...
Hey Andy, as far as this is concerned... I'm just SUPER relieved that we're on the SAME SIDE! Whew...

Anyhow, thanks again for having me! Count me in anytime / anywhere!

What a great event! It was good to see all the Instructors that showed up for this event. Good food, good people, good times. A special thank you to Koolaid for putting this together and taking care of the food! Because this is was such a great time, we will be scheduling this type of event on a biannual basis. It looks like we will do one on the Monday of the Memorial day weekend in May and one on Veteran's day November 11th every year! Make a point of attending. You won't regret it. Hope to see you there!
If ye love wealth better than liberty,the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom,go home from us.We ask not your counsels or arms.Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.
