If you been waiting for good weather to attend an Appleseed event in Piru CA, now is the time November 13-14, 2010. The weather should be great. With a little luck it will not too cool.

Once again its an Appleseed Shoot Weekend here at the Southern California Dedicated Appleseed Range at Mike Thompson's beautiful range complex in Piru CA. (Wes Thompson's Piru Rifle Range, 6700 Holser Canyon, Piru, CA)

A chance to prove your marksmanship mettle against the dreaded AQT, to show mastery of not only your rifle, but also your self!

A chance to hear of the choices and sacrifices the men and women of America made on April 19, 1775 in response to a confiscatory British army.

A chance to again discover your inner Patriot, and to celebrate together with fellow Americans in one of your oldest rights!

You say you've never shot a rifle before? That's one of the things we teach; safe, correct, & efficient operation of your rifle.

You say it's been awhile since your rifle has been out to the range with you, for you to see where both of you are in that "relationship"? Bring it!!

We specialize in making you a better shot with your rifle!! If you do not have one, or if yours fails during the event, we even have .22's to loan out.....just ask before the event, if possible.

We shoot at 25m (82 ft) at a reduced size Army Qualification Target, scaled for 100, 200, 300, & 400 yd shooting.
We do not require the use of specialized gear, it really is a "run what you brung" shoot. We suggest the use of between .22 - 8mm rifles.

Iron sights, Tech-Sights, scopes, semi auto, bolt action, lever action, pump action, if you have it, & want to learn how to shoot it better, bring it!!
Bi-pods are not allowed, we actually teach how to get away from "needing them".....

Plan on shooting about 250 rounds of ammo, per rifle, per day. The range is our classroom, & we very much believe in teaching, & shooting.

All applicable California rifle restrictions are in place, if in doubt to what is allowable, please refer to: http://www.ag.ca.gov/firearms/

*No detachable box magazines may be brought into state with capacity exceeding ten rounds. All Tubular-magazine 22s are OK.

*“Assault weapons” ban- If you’re registered with CA DOJ already, you’re fine and can shoot your AK, AR15, G3 etc. with no problem. Might want to Xerox the DOJ document and keep it in the rifle case. Do not bring an unregistered “assault weapon” into the state. Do not bring an unregistered “assault weapon” to the range. Similarly, unregistered 50 BMG is not legal.

Now, what is this going to cost you? Women, anyone under 21, and active military, reserves, and National Guard are given free admittance. Guys, 21 & older that are not in the military will be charged $45 for one day, $70 for the full weekend if they pre register here: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/450833455 or, it will be $50 for one day, and $80 for the weekend. In addition everyone pays range fees. They are $10/shooter/day.

We recommend you bring: Rifle, ammunition, hat, adjustable sling, shooting jacket, elbow pads, shooting mat (or carpet remnant), bag lunch, water/drink bottles, stapler & staples, pens, chair, and most importantly, a teachable attitude. Easy up type sun shades if you have one. For more information on what to bring go to www.appleseedinfo.org click on the link below the picture of the Eagle.

For more direct info, please check here: http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.p.../td%3E%3Ctd%3E

Registration starts promptly @ 8:30 am, both days.

Motels are available in the area as well, please see the topic link for more info.

Come out and joins us at one of the most outstanding ranges in the Central California and learn your heritage as an American, and also learn how to become an even better rifle shot than you are now.
We will be at the Sacramento Valley Shooting Center on November 13-14, 2010.

You just bought a new rifle? We will show you how to be safe, efficient and accurate with it.

You say you've never fired a rifle before?? No problem!! We will train you how to safely, efficiently, & correctly operate a rifle.

You don't even have a rifle of your own? Again, not a problem. Make a note in the sign up comments, & we will try our best to arrange a loaner rifle for you. Most are also available with ammo to be purchased.

Rusty? Been awhile since you last seriously shot your favorite rifle. Come knock the rust off and give the equipment a serious shake out.

You really know how to shoot? Come see if you can measure up to the standards set by the Rifleman heritage. Who knows you might stay and decide to help pass those skill on.

You'd like to come but with the economy the way it is you don't think you can afford the time and money? Come and see why Appleseed is the only long term answer to solving these problems and that you really can't afford not to come. Sometimes short term sacrifice is necessary for long term gain. Get some friends to come with you, split the costs, carpool, share rooms. When bad times are coming now is the time to network and meet up with like minded Americans working together to save this country.

All applicable California rifle restrictions are in place, if in doubt to what is allowable, please refer to: http://www.ag.ca.gov/firearms/

*No detachable box magazines may be brought into state with capacity exceeding ten rounds. Unless you owned them prior to Jan1, 2000; then it's OK. All Tubular-magazine 22s are OK.

*“Assault weapons” ban- If you’re registered with CA DOJ already, you’re fine and can shoot your AK, AR15, G3 etc. with no problem. Might want to Xerox the DOJ document and keep it in the rifle case. Do not bring an unregistered “assault weapon” into the state. Do not bring an unregistered “assault weapon” to the range. Similarly, unregistered 50 BMG is not legal.

Out of state shooters, don’t bring military-pattern semiautomatics as they’re almost sure to fall under the “assault weapon” ban. M1 Garand and most 10-shot fixed-magazine SKS.are OK, however. There is one SKS exception: Zastava SKS Carbines 59/66 are considered destructive devices in California and therefore may not be purchased, possessed, imported, or kept for sale without a permit. (Having said all that about “assault rifles”, there is provision in state law for out-of-state shooters to bring “assault rifles” to CA shooting events; anybody wants to try that out might want to read the statute for themselves and consult a lawyer-welcome to California.)

Now, what is this going to cost you? Women, all under 21s, and active military, reserves, and National Guard are given free admittance. Guys, 21 & older that are not in the military will be charged $45 for one day, $70 for the full weekend if they pre register here: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/454297817

If they just show up at the door, it will be $50 for one day, and $80 for the weekend, plus the range fees.
The range fees for Sacramento Valley Shooting center are $10/person/day - $5/range member/day.

We shoot at 25m (82 ft) at a reduced size Army Qualification Target, scaled for 100, 200, 300, & 400 yd shooting.
We do not require the use of specialized gear, it really is a "run what you brung" shoot. We suggest the use of between .22 - 8mm rifles.

Iron sights, Tech-Sights, scopes, semi auto, bolt action, lever action, pump action, if you have it, & want to learn how to shoot it better, bring it!!

Plan on shooting about 250 rounds of ammo, per rifle, per day. The range is our classroom, & we very much believe in teaching, & shooting.

For more information on this shoot, please check here: http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.p.../td%3E%3Ctd%3E

There are local motels if needed. Please see the above link.

We gather at lunch on site to explain the importance of April 19, 1775, and the beginnings of our country, & our Heritage.
Plan to bring a bag lunch both days.

Either way, I guarantee you will not want to miss this portion of the event. Come learn about the choices made by the men and women of Colonial America, and their final response to an oppressive King. See if you can see any comparisons that might be drawn between then & now. See what your own choices are.

No tracer ammo or ammo that attracts a magnet is allowed.
Please arrive for check in by 8:30am.
We recommend you bring: Sling; shooting jacket; elbow pads; shooting mat (or carpet remnant); water/drink bottles; teachable attitude.

We have 80 spaces available, so hurry & get yourself pre-registered, so you do not miss out on this opportunity!!

We'll see you there!!

Transport rifles and pistols unloaded. Pistols and “assault rifles” go in padlocked containers. Car trunk is considered a locked container, but glove compartment, even if it locks, is not OK. (I go the extra mile and padlock everything: firearms in one padlocked container, ammunition in another padlocked container. More than law requires, though.)

No tracer, incindiary, or ammo that attracts a magnet is allowed
