Charlottesville, VA Rivanna Rifle & Pistol Club 2-3 November
« on: November 04, 2019, 01:52:25 PM »
Sold out!  We had a full line of 20 fine ladies and men this past weekend.  The Wolfhound, Bad Fishy, Horse Soldier and myself were joined by a Yankee from PA: Chainsaw, to tell some history and teach some marksmanship.  A fine time was had by all including, or perhaps especially our 5 youth shooters.   The weather was as perfect as you could ask for, contributing to one of the best weekends we've had. 

Sunday we broke our AQT train up a little bit with a pause for a Natural Point of Oreo drill. Two Oreos did not survive the carded sights.  The other 18 didn't survive the not-carded second volley. 

We also had the pleasure of minting 5 new riflemen, Luke, Zak, Mike, and Paul.

Who used the force (couldn't resist) to destroy the Oreo with sights carded.

Thank you Shoot Boss, Instructors, and AITs!. This was my second Appleseed. I learned a lot more than the first time (I was better prepared to listen and practice what I was taught) and really had a good time. I’ve already registered for Stafford in January and plan to bring one of my sons. I hope it’s a winterseed! Best part, I got over my stubborn and dumb insistence on using a right handed bolt action as a left hander. I’m looking forward to improving with a better fit rifle.

Thank you!
