Big Heads Up for you guys who have been thinking about attending an Appleseed event.....There's a full distance shoot in Middlebury Vermont coming up.....Middlebury is only a little ways North of Albany, easy to get to and Vermont is great.

Here's the link to the post in the New England section:


For those of you who don't know what Appleseed or RWVA is, http://www.appleseedinfo.org/ here's your sign. You'll find out eventually that it is your responsibility and duty as an American Citizen, and as a member of the un-organized civilian militia. If you're gonna wield a rifle...make yourself effective within "the riflemans quarter mile".

I never thought it would be possible, but I was making consistent hits on man size targets at 400 meters with irons. Mind you, that's a 16" carbine with an A1 style BUIS. If you can't now, you will when you leave. And if you've never shot out to 400 meters, here's your chance. Shooting smaller and smaller paste on dots at 25/50/100 yards is one thing.....shooting at ACTUAL distances is a whole'nother ball game. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR.

The folks who run these events really are some great people....they'll probably give you the shirt of their back if you really needed it. There's a massive amount of collective knowledge among the instructors....if you pick up 2% of it you'll be a better shooter, guaranteed.

I can't say it enough, GO TO THIS EVENT.

Attending an Appleseed is your responsibility, FULL DISTANCE APPLESEEDS don't come along every day.

It sure seems like alot of them happen in Vermont though.........Hmmmmm.

hiramranger, You're the man

I'm not an organizer or anything for this shoot, or for Appleseeds in general, just an ardent fan. For pertinent information check out the original thread in the New England Hometown forum.....and/or contact Ripersnifle for additional information regarding camping etc. Also, the Appleseed website should have an entry for this shoot at some point soon.

Ok.. who's going? Thinking about doing this one (in addition to the Claverton, NY one) because I've never shot out to 400 yards before..

Any LI people?
