Appleseed comes to Sacramento, CA

I signed up.  I can’t wait.  From what I hear, it’s already half full.  Better get your rear in gear if you want in.  Want details?  Lookie here.  I intend on camping over night.

The Appleseed Program is designed to take you from being a simple rifle owner to being a true rifleman. All throughout American history, the rifleman has been defined as a marksman capable of hitting a man-sized targets from 500 yards away — no ifs, ands or buts about it. This 500-yard range is traditionally known as “the rifleman’s quarter-mile;” a rifleman can hit just about any target he can see. This skill was particularly evident in the birth of our country, and was the difference in winning the Revolutionary War.

What You Will Learn?
“Six Steps To Firing A Shot”:
1. Sight Picture
2. Sight Alignment
3. Respiratory pause.
4. Keep your eye on the front sight (or retical) and focus your mind on the front sight.
5. Squeeze the trigger.
6. Follow through.

We will also cover sling usage, sight adjustment, Inches, Minutes, Clicks, and the Heritage and beginning of the American Rifleman.

    Shoot highpower- out to 600 yards prone with iron sights. More fun than you can shake a stick at too.

    I’m going to take a handgun class this spring- rifle class would be nice- maybe this summer.

    My club (Zouaves) shoots to 600 with reduced size targets at 200 yards – does that count? I should get down to Coalinga for a real 600/1000 yard shoot one of these days…

    we do reduced at 600 on a 300 yard range- so I think it counts. I just would be lost on my windage for when I really stretched my legs.
