Thanks to the Shawano Gun Club for partnering with Appleseed.

I have to put out a special thank you to both RustyRed and Reckless Rick for a absolutely great job of instructing.This program would not work without people like you.

Please welcome also, Wisconsin's newest Orange Hat, MaverickAR6.I see a bright future for Mike in the Wisconsin Appleseed. Thanks for stepping up.  O0

Thanks Mav for taking the hat.  You look a little familiar, have we met?

The Shawano club is a great venue to Appleseed, everyone who was there, lets try to sell it out next time.

You all know, you can shoot KD (known distance) from the same firing line.  Next time, I'm sure it will happen.

Lets hear from some of the students O0 O0
"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value."   T Paine

Yes sir, we have.  Remember the nasty muzzle brake AR from the Sept. 24-25 shoot in Shawano?  The one that kept knocking the hat off D-fly's head while he tried to card it?  :cool2:

Didn't bring any black rifles this time, went old school.

Finally found the pics from Shawano. Had a great time, trying to convince the wife to go to Suamico in August to try again.

You da' man Snidley! Now remember... going to Appleseed is about becoming an involved citizen, not just about shooting a Rifleman's score. but hey!... it sure is a good incentive!  ~~:) 

YOU are a great American! And concerning the wife coming to next appleseed shoot: Try weaving a little romance into the schedule and see if she bites. Hotel, candle light diner, jacuzzi, etc...  ^-^

Glad you enjoyed yourself!
