well i attended my first appleseed shoot on feb 19 and 20. well originally i was gonna shoot stone cobra carbine 2.5 but i had limited funds and i had to help my family move on 20th. i decided to sign up for a 1 day appleseed. after the first day, i said to myself "screw moving. i'm attending the second day." best decision i've made on both accounts.

appleseed turned out to be one of the greatest classes i've been to. i highly recommend to anybody interested in learning marksmanship and about american history. all i can really say is, it's an experience. i'm not really good at after-action reports, so here's some videos. enjoy!!!

I also went the Feb 19-20 Appleseed and loved it. Let me tell you, if you cant hit a 1" by 1 1/2" target at 25 yards with iron sights then you need to get yer butt to an Appleseed, improve your skill, learn about what your forefathers sacrificed for your (rapidly decreasing)liberties, and have a blast! Thank you to all the under/non paid crew that taught me so much about how to be accurate with a rifle in such a short time for so little money.

Congratulations, Rifleman!! I made Rifleman at my first Appleseed about 3 weeks ago, so I know the feeling haha! One question: can you post links to the videos? I can't see embedded vids on the device I'm using :(

Once again, congratulations!

it was from all your post that inspired me to go. appleseed is sooo much more than just a shooting lesson. the lessons taught at lunch taught me more than any school teacher or book. it's especially refreshing to be surrounded with other like minded patiots. all my friends are yuppies that are more concerned about the latest pair of jordans or the newest cars :rolleyes:.

That's one of the best AARs I've seen. A video is worth a thousand words!
Thanks for putting those together & Hope to see you on the Appleseed Trail.

Great vids! I'm going to try and make it out to an Appleseed sometime this year and your vids give me a better idea of what to expect.

oh btw, i went shooting today with my remington 700 tactical. i was practicing my NPOA and was able to make a smiley face at 100yds ;D. before appleseed, i always just forced my sights onto the target. it's totally different now. now i move my body to the target. appleseed is FTW
