You cannot further the brotherhood of man, by encouraging class hatred.

Brother (and sister) Texans, sign in, please.

I don't know if I qualify as a Texan just yet.  I still think of myself as a Cheese Head, who's been living in the land of Hoosiers for the last 11 years.  However......  Due to some unexpected changes with work at the end of 2011, I find myself no longer living in the state of Indiana with Hawkhaven, Techres, Yellow House Jake, and the rest of that lot.

I'm now living in Austin Texas.  I will be working nights starting Jan. 18 from Weds. through Sat. which means into Sunday morning.  I expect this is going to keep me from being real active with shoots.  However I would like to help out in any way I can.

Also if you happen to be in the Austin area, and want to get together for, whatever, please let me know.  My wife and daughter are still in Indiana and will be until Feburary at the earliest.

Thanks all!
Lars

Attended several Davilla shoots last year and got my Rifleman patch there in December.  All the instructors, every time, have been wonderful.  Looking forward to next time...

I'd like to welcome ALL the newcomers to the forum.  O0 I'm thrilled that you've found us (Appleseed) and hope you'll come shoot again.  :~

Having said that, you can REALLY HELP   :sos: keep these events going by handing out some literature (tri-folds). You can talk to people  @@) or you can just leave the tri-folds in places where others will find them.  ;D

Please take your enthusiasm  ^:)^ to the next level. Hope to see you at shoot soon.  8)

BTW, Lars--welcome to Texas. You and your family will like Fredericksburg. Ask around then come see us. ~ Regards, Two Wolves  :DH:

A moral compass provides a basis for making decisions; an action is good or bad, right or wrong when viewed in the light of the individual's moral bearing. If no moral compass exists for the individual, then decisions and actions are made on the basis of purely subjective thoughts. This leads to "If it makes me happy, or makes me feel good, or if it's something I simply want to do, then it is right and good."

After an extended absence due to several lame excuses I'm back. I'll be at College Station this Sunday & back on the trail as often as work permits. Look forward to seeing all my old friends again & making new ones.

I think I overheard that Davilla is going to be regularly scheduled for the third weekend of every month next year.

I've been practicing up for my Rifleman patch for way too long now.  This year is the year it's going to happen.  But I don't see any events scheduled for 2013 around Austin.  Are those events still being finalized?

Looked for an intro thread, couldn't find it.  This is the closest I found so I figured it'll have to do lo.

Anyway, I heard about this program through some like minded friends in East Texas.  I live in West Houston.  I'd call myself an intermediate shooter but a beginner when it comes to rifle handling.  I shoot pistols quite often, and reload a few calibers as well. 

I am a 30 year old full time college student, married no kids.

I'm interested in learning more about this program and attending one of the meets in the near future (going to try to make it to College Station on the 25th and 26th).  Well I don't know many people here and am not exactly familiar with this sort of thing, but I like how it's focus is on the nation's founding principles, and improving marksmanship and self reliance, so I'm definitely interested in participating.  Any help, advice, or guidance is appreciated.  Thanks.

Mag357,

Good folks out at College Station. You can send a private message to "Sleepy Joe" or "Sir Not Appearing In This Film" as they are usually running the events out there.

You can pre-register for the May event here: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/6159253493

What to bring: http://www.appleseedinfo.org/as_prepare.html

You don't need to do anything special beyond what's on the list. Just come and experience it. Bring the wife too!

WrongWay here. Living in Kerrville since 2007. Hoping to get to the December Appleseed in Fredericksburg.

May not be the correct forum to ask but is the Fredericksburg shoot centerfire or rimfire?

Welcome Wrong Way.  Fredericksburg is either. Rim fire is cheaper but centerfire is more fun. We shoot about 350 to 400 rounds. Look forward to seeing you. Regards, Two Wolves
