All of you "Branch Davillians" have a great weekend down there at Scout's place.  Meanwhile, I'll be up here in Washington State scoping out a potential DAR and thinking of ways to give Texas and California a run for it's money in 2009.

Newbee up here in D/FW

Looking forward to Appleseed this Summer (2009) So that my Son and I can attend together...

Please... Let's have an event that is NOT in Far West Texas....Southwest Airlines still has a "COW" over Rifles as Checked In Baggage...

Not to hijack the thread but what issues have you had with SW Airlines?  I travel frequently and havehad no real issues with the handgun(s) that I nearly always check as baggage.  Is it an issue with charging for extra luggage?  They now let you put your locking container within a larger piece of luggage.  So I have a case just big enough for weapon, magazines and ammo and place it in my normal checked suitcase.

Hi everyone.  I'm here in south Austin.  I'm the co-founder of http://www.texasguntalk.com  I only just found out about the Appleseed Project a few weeks ago and am hoping to attend some events in '09.  :)  I'll spread the word about Appleseed on my forum and hopefully we can start getting some of our people out to these events, or possibly get enough interest to maybe get some new events going in places where there aren't currently any.

Checking in from the greater Houston area.  Had a great time at my first Appleseed and look forward to attending another (maybe a bootcamp if I can get the vacation).  Sharing my experience with family members convinced 4 to go in thier states.  I bought another 10/22 and hope to bring my wife or a guest to the next one.

If anyone in the Houston area wants to get together to do some practice shoot me a PM.  ASC allows you to bring your own targets and shoot sitting and prone.

Brand new member (DFW) and first post.

Just found out about this group and am very much looking forward to attending one of the events. I was surprised there wasn't something listed for DFW. Hopefully soon. Until then it looks like Davilla will be the closest location to me. I'm really looking forward to it.

Another new member from the Dallas area here.  I have enjoyed the shooting sports most of my life, primarily bird hunting, skeet and sporting clays, and plinking with a .22.  I have recently started shooting an AR, and had the mistaken belief that it would be easy.  "The target isn't flying like a bird, it's stationary right?  This rifle shooting should be easy."  Boy was I wrong.  Peering through aperture sights and shooting well with a non-scoped rifle is proving to be a challenge.  I am ready to learn.  In the meantime, I suppose I qualify as a cook.  Don't ask what's for supper.....

wcmartin1, thanks for your kind greeting.

Captmac, I'll be at the Millican shoot this month as an IIT, but I'm also bringing along new shooters.

I'll be doing an April 19th shoot, but I don't know if it will be in Millican, Davilla, or Corpus.  I owe POP a visit!

I'll also be doing a mid-May shoot, location again to be determined.
