Largest Pistol Shoot in Appleseed History

Florida was a little late to the game when it comes to pistol shoots. Our first shoot was held in Myakka City Fl on January 16th of this year.  Well we have come a long way in a short time. Florida now has regularly scheduled pistol events at 3 ranges and at least one more range that has hosted an event this year. More ranges are scheduled to come on line next year as our instructor base grows. 

We are not stopping there. Next weekend Hollywood Florida will set the standard for pistol events with the largest pistol shoot in Appleseed history. We will be hosting 24 shooters with 11 instructors working the event.

That is a lot of moving parts but with a great instructor crew we will have a wonderful weekend. Keep your eyes out for the IAAR. Hopefully we will have some good tips for those looking to break Myakkas record of 24 shooters.

That is awesome - congrats! The Pistol aspect may not be for everyone, but no one can deny it has absolutely given the program another opportunity to tell the story of our heritage and inspire more of our citizens to grab a bucket and bail! Well done!
The difference between a novice and a master: the novice does it until they get it right. The master does it until they can't get it wrong.

Tennessee Beast

In giving us dominion over the animal kingdom, God has signified His will that we subdue the beast within ourselves.
John Lancaster Spalding

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin, 1775

"A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies."  George Washington 1790

"[T]o preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them…"
- Richard Henry Lee, Declaration Signer

Practice every time you get a chance. - Bill Monroe


"The Revolution was in the Minds of the People, and this was effected, from 1760 to 1775, in the course of fifteen Years before a drop of blood was drawn at Lexington."
John Adams to Thomas Jefferson, 24 August 1815
