Piru Appleseed Dec 13th-14th, 2008
« on: November 19, 2008, 05:13:27 PM »
Hey California,

          Another chance to attend an Appleseed right here in California at Appleseed's permanent RWVA range in Piru California.
         An opportunity to test your skills against the AQT (army qualification target) and learn what it takes to move from being an American rifle owner to becoming an American Rifleman!

          Bring your friends, your family, your coworkers, and immerse yourself in the heritage that is Rifle Marksmanship in America!!!!

          'Til the end of the year Ladies shoot FREE, under 21's shoot FREE, active military and guard shoot FREE.

          Hone those shooting skills, make new friends, and get back in touch with our Rifleman Heritage.

          Appleseed qualifies as a marksmanship activity under the Civilian Marksmenship Program.

Range: Wes Thompson's Piru Rifle Range

Address: 6700 Hosler Canyon, Piru, CA

Website: none

When:  Dec 13-14 2008

Range Fee: $10/day including children,  Free for  Active Military

Camping available: Yes, Space at range for 20 formal "camping area", no hook-ups.....nearest campground is Lake Piru Recreation Area (3 miles away).

Directions: Interstate 5 North or South to Hwy 126 West and travel about 10.4 miles to Center St.(Lake Piru Rec.Area sign)and turn right. Travel 0.2 miles to Orchard St.(stop sign)and turn right. Travel 0.1 miles to Main St.(stop sign)and turn right towards Lake Piru. This road becomes Piru Cyn Road. Travel 2.5 miles until you see white "Wes Thompson's Piru Rifle Range" sign on right side (Hosler Canyon road)and turn right onto dirt road and travel 1.4 miles. As you cross a stream bed, go thru a gate and vear left at the fork in road, you will see the office trailer on the left.Travel another 1.1 miles up dirt road to the Appleseed Event on the left side.

Hotels: 15 miles to castaic,(courtyard by marriot, embassy suites) 20 miles to valencia (best western, holiday express)

State Laws to be aware of:
*No detachable box magazines may be brought into state with capacity exceeding ten rounds.  Unless you owned them prior to Jan1, 2000; then it's OK. All Tubular-magazine 22s are OK.
*"Assault weapons" ban- If you're registered with CA DOJ already, you're fine and can shoot your AK, AR15, G3 etc. with no problem.  Might want to Xerox the DOJ document and keep it in the rifle case.  Do not bring an unregistered "assault weapon" to the range.  Similarly, unregistered 50 BMG is not legal.
Out of state shooters, don't bring military-pattern semiautomatics as they're almost sure to fall under the "assault weapon" ban.  M1 Garand and most 10-shot fixed-magazine SKS.are OK, however.  There is one SKS exception: Zastava SKS Carbines 59/66 are considered destructive devices in California and therefore may not be purchased, possessed, imported, or kept for sale without a permit.  (Having said all that about "assault rifles", there is provision in state law for out-of-state shooters to bring "assault rifles" to CA shooting events; anybody wants to try that out might want to read the statute for themselves and consult a lawyer-welcome to California.)
Transporting firearms:
 Transport rifles and pistols unloaded.  Pistols and "assault rifles" go in padlocked containers.  Car trunk is considered a locked container, but glove compartment, even if it locks, is not OK.  (I go the extra mile and padlock everything: firearms in one padlocked container, ammunition in another padlocked container.  More than law requires, though.)

No tracer
Ammo that attracts a magnet is prohibited at this range

Misc:   PLEASE OBEY THE POSTED 15 MPH SIGNS ON THE RANGE!! There are cattle free ranging along the road.

We will be giving away a FREE Patriot Membership to Front Sight Firearms Training Institute at the first CA Appleseed of 2009.

To be eligible for this give away, you simply need to have attended any CA Appleseed Shoot from Sept. 1st through the end of 2008, and you will be given a FREE ticket and an opportunity to win!

The Patriot Membership is the $5000 LIFETIME membership which allows 2 and 4 day handgun, shotgun and rifle courses at Front Sight for the rest of your life, FREE. These courses are $1000 and $2000 each without the lifetime memberships.

Just so everyone is clear, the membership details are as detailed in the link above BUT any BONUS offers on the Frontsight Website, free guns, etc., are not part of the memberships being donated here. You only get those bonuses when paying full retail on the website to Frontsight.
