Yes, there are usually some ladies on every shooting line... and also lady instructors.

I know of one lady instructor who will be attending that weekend.

Hope you can come out. If I can answer any questions, let me know.

Today is the last day to register online. Walk-ins are welcome.

While most people bring a 22LR because it's cheap to fire, you can bring most any rifle you own.

If you need .22 ammo or a rifle, we can probably work something out. Loaner rifles are available. Ammo at reasonable cost, too.

PM me if you need ammo or a loaner rifle.

Thank You to all the Appleseed Folks for all the instruction and patience. It was a great weekend packed with a wealth of information on Marksmanship. If you want to improve your marksmanship skills I would highly recommend this Clinic. It was a fun weekend for all walks of life, and all skill levels (Novice to Expert). I look forward to the next Appleseed event.

No I did not, but I did bring home some dandy elbow bruises and abrasions. I was happy just to come out and shoot.

I hope you come back out and join us again.
