Bringing friends... Just going for consistency. Bringing iron sights this time. Hoping to keep working on my fundamentals, and shoot Rifleman with the iron sights.

I was told that a Rifleman perseveres, so I am back for more teachin’!

Great weekend. Perfect weather.  Engaged shooters.  Everyone showed improvement throughout the weekend.  Congratulations to new Rifleman Randy and new Riflewoman Andie.  Huzzah!  Nice work on the part of repeat Riflemen Travis and Bandaid.  Ironman shot a 245 for his Distinguished patch!
 
There were a number of shooters pounding on the door with scores of 190+.  Justin with 208.  Dry practice really can help, even if just to smooth out those mag changes to add a few seconds for finishing the transition stage.

Nice to have a chance to work with IIT Schooner, who has re-located to this side of the country.

I really enjoyed this event, I hope you all did also.  Just realized I did not take one picture this weekend.

this was my first event, and couldn't have asked for nicer circumstances. i had a blast, and reviewing my AQT's and Redcoats this morning, saw some real clear improvement over the weekend (130s -> high 160s on my iron-sighted bolt gun), even despite the exhaustion and soreness in the latter half of day 2  ;D. i'll be coming back for sure, with loads of dry-fire practice under my belt. big thanks to janer for the loaner shooting mat, and all the other instructors for the fun stories and great lessons!

There was real improvement in all the students, myself included! I learned something knew at each of the Appleseed’s I have attended. A big thank you Whit, Janer, Flipper, Schooner and Ironbar. Y’all are great!

Had a great time.  Enjoyed meeting so many people.  Great bunch to be around.  Truly a dream come true to earn that patch.  So many bad habits to break and new habits to learn.  Started squeezing, holding, then releasing the trigger just in time to shoot that 211.  Thanks to Whit, Janer, Flipper, Schooner, Ironbar and Bandaid for the tips, guidance, and help.  Got home Sunday evening and discovered each elbow had a large blister.  Gotta bring elbow pads to Eagle Creek (aka Douglas Ridge) next month! ;D  First patch is only the beginning.

Nice shooting Ironbar! Huzzah!

So far, it looks like only instructors from the NW have earned the Distinguished.  Need to get these patches on the jackets of some of our students.
