Mercedes is the forum name for the shoot boss running the September 7th, October 5th, and November 2nd one-day events in Fort Worth, TX.  I suggest contacting her.  She may (or may not) have loaners available for you to use.

Also, if you wish to attend Appleseed events near your home state of New Jersey, I suggest checking out some of the events in eastern Pennsylvania.  We run several good events there.  You'll have at most a two hour drive.  The towns of Quarryville, Palmerton, and Milford all have good events.  I've been to many of those events, and I know the shoot bosses there.  They are good teachers.

MKNJ,

What month specifically are you looking to sign up for?

Mercedes doesn't typically have a loaner available.  Another instructor that is attending the same month may, though.  With enough advance notice we can also arrange to loan one of our rifles to Mercedes, who can then bring it as a loaner to the event.

Let us know

Hello mknj.

We still have room on the line in October and November.  We actually have a couple of others at the November event who have requested  a loaner rifle and our Instructors have been able to provide them.  I'm sure that we can obtain another for your use.  Do you prefer iron sights or a scope?  My email and phone number is below if you'd prefer to visit personally.
