The one *consistent* complaint (or warning?) about Appleseed is one I hear from instructors: "Once you volunteer for a hat", the lament goes, "you don't get to shoot nearly as much". Having heartily agreed with this sentiment in the past myself, I decided to drum up some interest in the idea of a support-side-seed, otherwise known as weak-hand-seed, the-other-hand-seed or my-does-this-feel-odd-seed. I am hoping to have a bunch of instructors and IITs show up and shoot an Appleseed from the other shoulder. (Distaff-seed? Less-than-dextrous-seed?). I would personally prefer the July 14 Leyden AS, since that's one where I cannot SBIT, but any other AS would do as well. Extra points for centerfire and/or bolt action, I suppose. Double points if your dominant eye is on the same side as your dominant hand. Misery loves company - otherwise known as strength in numbers. Besides, with the large number of left handers on the line these days, I, at least need to figure this out.

   So, any takers?

, improvement of marksmanship?

Sorry, but I can't - within about 15 minutes my right shoulder will remind me why I hung up my rattan sword.

I tried shooting lefty last year just on a whim... and discovered that a sling is one of the FASTEST ways to get chronic tendonitis to act up known to dwarves man.  :(
Unhappy it is ... to reflect that a brother's sword has been sheathed in a brother's breast, and that the once happy and peaceful plains of America are either to be drenched with blood or inhabited by slaves. Sad alternative! But can a virtuous man hesitate in his choice?

I don't know as I'm up for an off-hand - but depending on the day an Instructors (and friends?) KD afternoon out to at least 200 would be awesome. :)

I really like the idea; the location and timing won't work out for me though.

It makes me think that we should be engaging those who already have Rifleman patches with other challenges. I do worry from time to time that people earn their patch and then go home thinking "been there done that" and don't come back again.

Tempting.  I doubt I'd be able to make both days, but I'll see if I can at least get away for Sunday...
