Appleseed Part Deux - Coming Soon!

OMG! I have a week and a half before our next Appleseed event! (Mar 9/10)

So much for my grand plans to practice-practice-practice to perfect my skills before then! I have barely touched my rifle at all!

Throw in the fact that we managed to score a Ruger 10/22 (which seems to fit me better - I can actually do a mag change without breaking position!) that I've barely shot, and that is having some issues with trigger reset at the moment....well, I've always learned best under pressure. :)  If my husband were reading over my shoulder he would pipe in and tell you that there "typically" would be a frustration melt-down or two along the way when working under pressure, but not this time, dammit! I'm going to push myself over the next week and a half, but I'm not going to stress over it.
If we can't get the trigger reset figured out, I'll just shoot with the Remington again, and pray. A lot. :)

I'm going to practice, and then go and have fun, and hopefully earn one of these.....
The coveted RIFLEMAN patch!

I think I've got it sighted in (thanks to Mr. J - would have been lost without ya!) and just need to practice with the various positions and the sling. Wish me luck!


  1. This would be my jealous comment if I were a jealous person. Given that I am not a jealous person, I will wish you well and lament the fact that I can OT go to an Appleseed went since my Saturdays are devoted to church. Best of luck and tell us all about it when you get back.

  2. 2A Mama,

    Congrats on getting to attend an Appleseed event. One of these days the triangle (time, energy and money) will work out for me to attend.

    In the mean time, wanted to invite you and yours to the Dallas Area Blog shoot on Sunday May 26th. Going to have it at the private club I belong to.

    Stop by the blog for details or email me (*) . Would love to get more Dallas bloggers meeting on a regular basis.

    *remove the underscores.

    1. Thanks Bob! I'm really looking forward to doing Appleseed again! Hope you can make it out one day!

      I'll bop on over to your blog and check out the details for DAB!
