Remember my Appleseed post? I believe I first mentioned kyjam and that I was thinking I should do an Appleseed shoot some day to Shorter Half on Monday. Today at dinner, he had his 10/22, a new ghost ring sight, 4x scope, and milsurp sling sitting on the table. Do you think he’s trying to tell me something?

There's one in late October that might be feasible. It’s about 2 ½ hours away. The only problem with that is that there’s no lodging close by. Right now it’s looking like the likeliest area to find reasonable accommodations is 20 miles away.


  1. Good on ya.
    2.5 hrs is a bit of I drive; maybe you could hold out for a closer one.
    I'd like to suggest ordering the "25M Targets w/Fred's Guide to Becoming a Rifleman" from:

    Fred is the guy who started the whole AS program, & for $16 you can get the instruction guide & 25m targets on which to practice.

    You can "scope" out (heh) the scheduled AS shoots here:

    Nothing is as good as live training, but the $16 kit will give you a flavor of the thing, & excellent guidance to boot.

    Good luck!

  2. DT, if I hold out for a closer one, it's going to be November or December. The weather could be good, or it could be absolutely dismal. And October in the mountains would be BEAUTIFUL!

    Thanks for the line on the guide and targets. And I *think* I may have talked Shorter Half's little sister into joining me.
