Accepted the orange hat yesterday in Moxee, WA.  Took me three Appleseeds to succeed !  Finally it all came together and I shot a 214, 217, 234, 235 and cleared a redcoat. 

Hope to be able to make a contribution.

Another FNG here!  This is my second seed and my wife's third.  Yesterday, at the end of the day, I patched with a 213.  This morning I had a couple of malfunctions due to a defective shell that was pressed off center of the brass.  I think a piece of led got shaved off and was stuck in the chamber resulting in a bunch of misfeeds.  There just isn't enough time to clear the gun and save the sheet.  We snaked the gun over lunch and then I shot 221 and then 233.  ;D At that point I stopped shooting and focused on trying to get my wife to patch.  ~~:) Got her up to 199 and no more.  So close!  Gotta be honest, I really enjoyed trying to figure out what she was doing wrong and getting her to fix it.  She's enthused about shooting some more on the side and making another seed.

I saw a bucket around here somewhere...  OH YEAH!  4/28/13 Vale, OR KD shoot!  My good friends Mark Davis (SB), ItsanSKS (instructing), and Shadowman handed it to me!  Thanks, it's an honor to stand and bail with you guys.

Actually it was better than that!  We had RL from Washington.  He is the most senior instructor for the northwest region.  I am originally from Southern California (that's why I border raid down there from time to time) and now live in Washington, not Ohio.

It was a great event.  I wish it could have lasted longer.

I have put myself up for more travel this year,
 and hope to meet more people out on the trail!
I do travel hundreds of miles,
 in fact 100m just to my home range!(MGAR)
 But even with my 500m round trips to Polatkka,
 I do not even come close to leaving this great Big State! ..:..

Pitspitr Reporting in!

I guess the third time is the charm. At my third AS I shot a 224 last Saturday and accepted an orange cap.

I see my instructor and my shoot boss/SC on page 2.

It is absolutely more accurate than I am. The problem with a rifle as accurate as it is, is that when the hole isn't where you want it you have no excuses. ::)

I attended the recent RBC and finally shot rifleman with a lot of coaching from some great people. I'm excited to accept the orange hat and pass on the investment that was made in my success.
