Hey Y'all Sheepdog here checking in from our new digs in Lindale (north of Tyler).

Anything going on in this neck of the woods? I have been sidelined for a bit but ready for some TOG.

Hope to be meeting some of you soon.

Regards, Sheepdog

Hey Sheepdog - it'll be good to see you back in the saddle. Just to be sure - did you want to come back as an instructor? I'll have to get you reinstated since right now you are set as a retired shoot boss.

Oh and everybody - we do have a new range in Gainesville, TX (near the Oklahoma border) - even have a KD scheduled for December 5-6, 2020.

    Gainesville, TX Appleseed September 5, 2020 - One Day Event
    Gainesville, TX Appleseed October 3, 2020 - One Day Event
    Gainesville, TX Appleseed November 7, 2020 - One Day Event
    Gainesville, TX Known Distance Appleseed December 5-6, 2020

That would only be  about a 1 hour drive for Dan & Jason.

I just wanted to be left alone.

Hello everyone. Texasdawg checking in. I live north of Fort Worth in Justin and would like to find some Appleseed events to attend with my sons. Anyone know if there are going to be more events at the Gainesville range in 2021 or at other locations in North Texas? Thanks and looking forward to meeting some of you.

Hi there!

Here's a link to the Texas schedule as it stands currently. Check back often for updates!

Hello there, Our normal shoot boss for Gainesville mentioned that she may be starting one up around march. Its a phenomenal range and you'll have a blast, In the mean time Waco is just 2 short hours away with a equally impressive range. The next one is this month in January. And I believe it still had quite a lot of openings available. Hope to see you on the range soon bud.

Looking forward to meeting you, sir! And, of course, seeing if there are any broad-sided barns I might be able to hit...

New guy from Rockwall, TX checking in.

I've been wanting to do an Appleseed shoot for many years, but never had the geographic good fortune to be near one when it was happening. I hope to change that before the end of this year.

Hope everyone is gearing up for a great weekend in this amazing weather we're having in the DF Dub!

Welcome to Texas!

Rockwall - you're just a short hop from my area in Plano  O0

We'd love to see you out with us.  The two closest ranges to you will be Waco and Gainesville; both are excellent.  There's a fair chance that you'd see me at either one.  For Gainesville, the rest of 2021 is either private events for groups that booked up in advance, or known distance  :snipersmi (you'd want to do a 25 meter event first).  There will be more 25m events in Gainesville in 2022.  Waco has more open events, and generally meets the third weekend of every month.

Let me know if there are any questions we can help with!

Hello Everyone, Javier checking back in! My nephew and I attended several Appleseed shoots in San Antonio about 3 or 4 years back. We had a blast and it got me hooked on to shooting small paper targets.

I never quite made it to my Rifleman badge though, those rapid stages are not a joke. I think I came up 5 points shy on my best target. Needless to say that Rifleman badge has been lingering in the back of my mind as I've continued shooting over the years.

I'll be attending the Oct 15 and 16th in San Antonio and hope to improve my hold. I will see everyone there!

Welcome back to the party,  Javier! That SA crew is really something special. They'll have you back in the groove before you can say, "your preparation period has ended!"

Mrs. Smith,
They are the best bunch. I am always talking up Appleseed when I tell people how I got in to shooting. I shoot High Power now and I would not have known about marksmanship at all and this great discipline and community without them!
