I'm looking at going to the Azusa shoot. This would be my second try at rifleman.

Question: I have a Rifleman opportunity card from earlier this year. How do I use that since I don't see an option in the registration page?

Thanks,
Rich

Coyote,

You can use your Rifleman's Opportunity Card by registering in advance for the shoot using the following category on the Appleseed registration page:

FREE Sat & Sun Active Military,
Reserve, and Guard w/ ID, Peace
Officers (w/ ID), Disabled (w/ ID), Re-
enactors in period dress, Elected officials (w/proof)

Then just be sure that you bring your card with you to the shoot. The person signing you in will need to see it.

I'll be at the Corona meet with my wife (Robojet). Both first timers.

Robojet will be using our 10/22 TD, and I'll be using my AR15. Really looking forward to this!

I saw that there was only 3 tickets left for Corona! It looks like its going to be sold out again so don't procrastinate if your thinking of going.

First time AS'ers:
Congratulations! You will have a fun, educational, and impactful weekend.
As a veteran first timer, if I may share just how important 3 things are before arriving:
1. A GI sling. Not having one is like not having sights. It is used in AS technique every time. Modifying a neoprene, 3in1, bungee,etc.. slings to make it work wastes time you don't have and not as effective.
2. Sights that can be adjusted horizontally and vertically. If your factory sights do that, ok. If not, aftermarket iron sights or a scope you have or borrowed works good. Whatever it is, have it mounted to the rifle to use and do dial it in at 25 meters.
3. Most important-a teachable attitude and be prepared to have a lot of great info. jammed in two days while being responsible in maintaining 100% safety awareness.

IMHO the first 2 completely sorted before coming will greatly improve #3 as you won't be distracted trying to fix your barn sized grouping or frazzled by equipment 'failures'. You will hear and learn the important safety,line commands,information immediately the first time and quickly build upon skill after skill and improve as AS designed the days to be.

We are down to one spot left for the Corona shoot.

Azusa looks to still have a fair amount of room on the line.

Corona is sold out for December!

But don't despair, space is still available at the Azusa shoot at Burro Canyon on the same dates!

Got my hands on another .22 so both of us will have .22s with GI slings. We sighted in our red dots at 25 yards last weekend (at On Target). Will be bringing ARs with Vortex optics as backups. Hope for good weather!

You know, good weather for a rifleman in training is any weather that you can see the target

Hey all - I am hoping to be able to go to Corona on Sunday only do you think that there may be a spot if I show up or should I just suck it up and drive out to Burro?

Come on up to Burro. You'll like it. Beautiful mountains, wide open private bay without RCSO going cyclic nearby while we're trying to tell History... might even get in some long range shooting on Sunday if time and weather cooperate.

Still got 17 spaces on the line.

Burro will be your best bet for a walk-on spot for Sunday this time around.

Pennysdad,

If I remember correctly, you got a custom wood stock for your Marlin 795. I would like to check it out if you have a chance to bring it to the shoot.

Thanks,
Rich

thanks Rocketman - I took one of the spots already and will bring my AR and M1 as well as my 10/22. I was with you the last day you were in Corona and enjoyed it. A perfect day will be when I achieve my 220+ AND get to do some long range shooting with the .223 and 30-06. I have actually been doing as recommended this time and doing a little dry practice so maybe I can actually use NPOA - imagine a student actually trying to do as instructed

I will have at least 4 of the 795's there so you will get to see them. They are pretty nice!

We had some folks who had scheduling changes for Corona this weekend. As a result, a few spots have opened up for Saturday. PM me if you are interested and I will get you signed up, as the online signup will still show sold out.

Of course. We even shoot when the sun shines!

Only reason we'll cancel is in the event of a safety problem. Say, Biblical flood, boulders washing down the mountains, lightning strikes on the range, gale force winds... I've only ever had to cancel one day of one Appleseed, and that was for wind making the line unsafe.

Looks like we might get damp on Sunday, but I see nothing in the forecast that concerns me.
