Default Sept Sacramento Appleseed Event

Is anyone going? Going to be attending for my first time. It'll be my first time at Sac Valley shooting range as well.

Haven't decided If I am attending that one yet, but I have been to three at that facility this year. Nice facility and a great team that trains there.

Make sure to have a shooting pad, the ground is pretty rocky.

Anybody know how the camping works there (fully self contained camper)?
I cannot get any answers from anyone.

You need to check in at the main office before they close. I've camped there 3 times. They'll tell you where to stay. The first two times I stayed at the Appleseed event range, and the third time they made me stay in Cowboy Town for some reason.

It was a really interesting experience.
The training was well done.
It definitely supplemented what I remembered from military training, but it helped my wife, who had never had any formal training improve immediately.

I have a little bit of a beef with Smith & Wesson, regarding their Performance Center M&P 15/22.

Did you guys camp? How was it? Did they let you stay at the range Appleseed was shooting from or stuff you in cowboy town? Whatíd you think of the sac valley range? Did you get any rain up there today?

We got a little bit of rain yesterday. More so towards the end/packing up, but not much at all. The wind was really killer though. Was a great time, and had a great first time experience. 10/10 would do again. Was my 3rd time out to that range now. Ended up going two times before the event to check it out.

We did camp.
Not knowing the layout or how many people would be attending, we parked across from range 11, because that lot looked like it hasn't been used in a long time.
Turns out that we could have parked across from range 10.

We pulled in at 4:15 Friday, I'd recommend getting there earlier, because the main office closes at 4. Fortunately, there were other staff who pointed us in the right direction.

Unfortunately, my wife and I both had a bunch of things go wrong, so we left early Sunday morning.
I had injured my lower back loading a generator into the truck Friday morning.
She had injured her mid back picking up a box at work earlier in the week.
I could barely prone, she could barely sit.
During the standing course, my M&P 15/22 P. C. out of battery discharged and a brass shard hit her in the arm. Fair amount of blood.
(Staff reaction was excellent, btw)
Neither one of us slept well Saturday, so in the interest of safety, we opted not to stay for day 2.

It rained a little bit Sunday morning around 3am, but had stopped long before Sunday's training.

Still investigating the OOBD.
I found some debris in the forward extractor recess, but the chamber itself wasn't overly dirty. Extracted the bullet from the bore and took some photographs. Going to mic the ammunition for variances, we were using CCI Woodland (correction, Realtree) "clean" ammo that is powder coated. It's possible that the match chamber can't handle the extra thickness.
Don't know yet, still investigating.

Regardless, we are both definitely going again, next time with center fire rifles. . .

Been to the range a couple times, but not for an Appleseed event. Do they allow spectators? Next one is next month.

Not sure if they allow spectators. That event is their KD(known distance) event. They'll actually be shooting out to 100yds or more. The regular Appleseed event is all at 25meters with targets that are smaller to simulate further distances.

The KD will be 50/100/150/200 Plus I think a shot at Morgan's Shingle at 125yds.

Excited for that one.

Yup. I have my KD patch. Itís a freakin blast. I have my dope sheet from that event saved on my phone and itís been repeatable everywhere Iíve shot at. I truly learned a lot at the KD event. Without looking Iím pretty sure itís 86 clicks on my scope from 50 yards to 200 yards. I didnít even know you could crank a scope that much lol. If youíre going youíre going to enjoy the crap out of it.

We have a couple spots open for the Rimfire KD Oct 22-23. You must have attended at least one Appleseed. This is more advance than a 25yd event. Lots of walking, lots of scope adjusting and yes...Morgan's Shingle....

Will they let you stay with a camper trailer? Are there any hookups available?

No Hookups, and from what I remember camping has to be self-contained and no tents.

Calisnaps nailed it. No hookups, generators are cool but you gotta be able to keep your site clean. Iíve seen guys camping in tents but Iím not sure how they feel about it. They often have events there with tons of campers and RVís.

Best bet would be to call the office during business hours 730 - 4 i think. There is power at the bathrooms I believe.
