First Day of the Appleseed.
I came to Poulsbo, a worried Shoot Boss, and I really thank bob 210 for delivering my shoot box on time Friday afternoon so I had the material.
I was happy it was a quiet morning drive across the Narrows bridge to Poulsbo, that the Range gate was open and their was a club RSO with the target line up and my two RWVA instructors setting up and settling in - waiting on me! And I knew Paulw but had concerns about anyone with a forum name like cubflyr - until I recognized his truck, it was Al who had really helped me in Custer WA just two weekends earlier. He could only work Saturday, but I was ready with a real crew for the weekend.
Then to the shooters. Seventeen came to learn. The first Redcoat was like: 17 shooters 400-1 300-1 200-2 100-3 HS-1 cleared target 0
second Redcoat 16 shooters 400-3 300-3 200-1 100-1-3 HS-7 cleared target 2
Instruction was quick and constant and picked up well. Lots of promise in marksmanship when some issues with rifles, ammunition and some dry fire will work out a lot of everyone's troubles. Dave made Rifleman score on the two AQTs of the afternoon and was willing to pass on his rifle to a shooter for use on the second day. Ever wonder how many muskets were passed on to others to keep up the action on 19 April, 1775. They shared much that day. for Liberty.
It was a great day to be in the RWVA, in Poulsbo and passing on the tradition and heritage. Thank you, shooters!
