    Re: The Appleseed Project

    I was just on a Jeep site (the owner's also a shooter) and found a review there.

    Re: The Appleseed Project

    Just an update... I'll be attending the Appleseed in Rochester MN on April 17-18 2010 with probably two friends (depends on pending vacation requests).

    Rifleman checking in...

    For anyone considering attending an AppleSeed shoot........GO!!!

    It is incredible what you LEARN there. Even if you already know how to shoot well. Try it "their way" and you'll be amazed at what you can do. I have benchrest rifle-shooting buddies who learned TONS at AppleSeed (even though you never use an artificial rest - just your MK-I support hand and a sling).

    Best of all, it is FUN!!! Seriously, the targets are creative and improving is always rewarding. Tack on the history lessons, put in a fashion FAR more interesting than you ever heard them back in school, and it is an all around good time.

    And if you don't make Rifleman at first - don't sweat it! You'll learn so many ways TO IMPROVE YOURSELF that you'll have months of "homework" to look forward to. It took me 3 AppleSeed events over 2 years before I finally got it all down pat. A Rifleman PERSEVERES...
    Thus Spoke Zarathustra.

    Re: The Appleseed Project

    I've always asked the experienced shooters afterwards, and to a man they said they learned something that made their shooting better. I'm talking NRA competitors who have been shooting longer than I've been alive.
    It's also a great place to meet some fellow shooters in your area (and beyond) that you wouldn't have met otherwise.
    The history portion is sobering, and gives a definete connection to the rights that we enjoy today.

    Re: The Appleseed Project

    Question on guns. I have a Marlin model 60 that I was thinking about using. But, being a tube feed instead of a magazine, can I use a tube speed loader for the required AQT reloads?
    I don't care how dry the heat is... 122 degrees is DARN HOT!

    The Marlin 60 will work as you've got some time between sections to reload (the instructors will guide you). One of my friends who went this past spring was using an older tube feed Remington. I brought my Marlin 60 as a spare rifle and did shift to it to see if the scope would help me out (was having issues seeing the 400 yrd targets). The cheap scope that was on the gun appeared to be shifting it's zero so I went back to the Marlin 795 I was using.

    I think the only thing you won't be able to do with a tube magazine rifle is a Rapid Fire AQT. This variant is 40 rounds pretty much straight through on the clock. You do need to have the rifle empty with the chamber open when you change position. The Rapid Fire AQT is an optional run that might not even be offered when you go.

    But the basic item I recommend is a shooting sling. Even with standard sights a sling of some sort will help your shooting by making you more stable.

    Like I mentioned above I was using a Marlin 795 and previously I used a 10/22 (another friend was using it this past time). Both rifles are set up with Techsights and shooting slings. No other modifications have been done.

    Beyond that, I recommend some sort of sighting upgrade. Either a scope or Techsights will make your life easier. Better sighting equipment will let you focus more on learning and shooting well.

    If you chose to go this route, Techsights are an easy install. Off hand you'll need a screwdriver and some Locktite. You should also get one of the tools to help adjust the sights, the stamped steel one for $5 works just fine. TS also stocks the slings that work great for Appleseed (I've got them on 4 rifles).
    http://www.tech-sights.com/

    As far as I know, Techsights are the only click adjustable peep sight that can be easily mounted to various rifles. The sight picture is very similar to many military rifles (before they went with all the high tech expensive optics). I've seen people try to make precise adjustments with a Williams sight. The guy wasn't happy and was planning on getting something different when he got home (it was on his daughter's rifle).
