This weekend we are doing 2 dry runs of the new Project Appleseed Pistol Clinic. Going to be a very full line. Looking forward to your feedback.

Unfortunately I had to leave early on Sunday, but here are the pics that Leia and I took : https://drive.google.com/open?id=1LtQoame7VHeNhptYPnu4r76ARVqtny4m


A huge THANK YOU  :bow:  to Kimber Custom, bluegrasscolonel and Ghostring ( & anyone else that had a hand in it) for making this event happen. This was truly an "appleseed" experience in terms of the amount of information presented. I am looking forward to putting the education I received over the weekend to practice. While I may have scored a qualifying score on Saturday, I definitely have room to grow (211 will not be my high water mark  ;) ) I was glad to see the red coat target used on Sunday AM as a baseline like we do at rifle events. I heard an idea floated around about having a similar target used, with a design specific to pistol events, which sounds pretty cool. Also, we tried to get Whit a chance to hit a qualifying score, but unfortunately he had to leave even earlier than I did, and only got one chance on Sunday.  I look forward to re-qualifying (with a better score) and rolling this out to the public.

Now, if we can just verify that this is the final form for the targets and the COF, I'd really like to see the patch I earned :)

I attended both days as a shooter and was not disappointed. Even though Kimber kept describing the event as a "beta" test, it served the purpose of introducing a lot of basic handgun shooting techniques that are especially important for those going on to more advanced training. I've had lots of handgun training and I always learn something every time. Spending 2 days as a shooter was great fun, even though I didn't do as well as I hoped. Looking forward to this program gaining traction in Appleseed. Thanks to the out of town instructors who gave up their time and energy to travel across the country to help make this happen.
