Instructor KD December 5, 2020 in Pelham, TN
« on: September 17, 2020, 11:42:39 AM »
What: Private 1 day Known Distance event for Project Appleseed instructors and invited guests. This is an old school “paper KD” following the shoot-walk-shoot format.

When: December 5, 2020  Registration at 8:00 AM CDT. We will be done by 5:00 PM or dark whichever comes first.


Where: Elk River Training Center Pelham, TN


Who: Preference will be given to instructors who have never qualified KD. I request that those who need to requalify wait until November 1 to register to give non KD patch holders a chance to get to the front of the line. We are limited to 12 firing points at this range. Anything wider than that is in the weeds.


How much: No registration fee for “hats” but there is a $20/day range fee.


This is a one-day KD (Known Distance) event for Project Appleseed instructors of all hat colors and invited friends of the program.  We will have minimal class time mostly spent on trajectory and environmental factors affecting the shot at a known distance. Please have a 25 yard zero on your primary rifle if possible. Unlike previous KD events, we will not have time to zero newly-installed scopes so please have that squared away before coming. We will shoot verification sighters at 25, 100, 200, 300 and 400 yards only on the first AQT. Shooters will have at least three opportunities, to earn a Project Appleseed Long Distance rocker by qualifying Rifleman at 100-400 yards. Time permitting, we may be able to shoot to 500+ yards at steel targets.


We will spend a lot of time going back and forth to the target line out to 400 yards only on the first AQT. The following AQT’s (at least 2) will be shot straight thru. Shoot, walk, shoot. This is old school. Don’t bring anything you can’t carry. Bring only what you need and nothing you don’t.


Things to bring:
·         Rifle, 150-200 rounds of ammunition in the appropriate caliber for your rifle. We recommend ammo from the same lot and bullet weight. Shooters bringing rifles with removable box magazines should bring at least two mags.


·         Something to carry your gear in. A backpack is recommended.


·         Eye and ear protection


·         Shooting mat unless you are comfortable shooting off the ground in prone and sitting positions.


·         Whatever you plan to eat for lunch and a snack for the Shoot Boss who will probably forget his as usual.  It will be a working lunch with history presentations under a covered firing line.


·         Clothing appropriate for the weather including rain gear. We shoot regardless of weather conditions. Since I’m the shoot boss you should go ahead and plan on rubber boots and a poncho. 😊

Without a heritage every generation starts over.

Beware of an old man who still shoots iron sights.
