    You too can say "I was there at the beginning!" when you join us on February 25-26, as the 2006 RWVA Nationwide Appleseed Tour kicks off with a two-day clinic at the RWVA home range in Ramseur, NC.

    We promise -- you'll have a great time, learn a bunch, and leave a better shooter. Even more importantly, you'll leave with the tools to teach others and help grow tomorrow's Riflemen today.

    I'm coming!

    Anyone else? If you've never dealt with Fred from Fred's M14 Stocks, you're missing out.

    This has the potential to be a really great event and I would like to invite anyone from the Atlanta area to ride/convoy up there with me that weekend.

    Let's be riflemen!

    Come on y'all! Who in the N. Georgia area wants to go spend a weekend in beautiful North Carolina honing the skills of a rifleman and spending time with other like minded individuals who are willing to stand up and act free!?

    11 days left...

    *Anyone* want to go up there with me? I'm planning to leave on Fri. 2/24 and be up there in time to have lunch with 1911Tuner...show him some of my 1911s that might need a little 'tuning'.

    I'd love to get more folks going up there...

    V4Vendetta,
    Please consider melding the 2 events into one! We would love to add you and your friends to the RWVA shoot and if you were to reschedule, I'd be happy to come up there in a few weeks and shoot with y'all again.

    What do you say?

    I can't meld them together unfortunately. The week after this I have a party I have to go to. The week after that I have to work.:( I'll host other events in the future though so if you miss this shoot-out, there will be more.:)

    I'll be there as an instructor; I'm hitting the road in an hour to get there tonight.

    If you've never seen the two-minute AQT before, you're in for a treat. Imagine 40-50 shooters each popping off 40 rds in 2 mins together....

    Hey Everyone,

    I just got finished with the clinic today. Needless to say, it was fantastic!

    My marksmanship definitely improved, and I was proud to say that I successfully engaged targets up to 300 yards by the end of the two days I spend learning.

    It was a great feeling!

    Previously I had never shot past 100 yards but using the teaching provided by the superb instructors I had no trouble applying the basics that we practiced on the 25 yard range to the greater distances.

    If anyone can make one of the future locations scheduled for the tour I highly suggest it! Well worth the time/money to be certain!

    Check the forum at http://www.rwva.org/yabbse/index.php?topic=546.0 for full after-action-review comments. We had several dozen folks show up, some with wives and kids. Some folks had never touched a firearm before. Saturday, we separated the children and novices into one group, those with more experience into another. Today, we fired at popup targets at 200 and 300 yards, then fired the full-size Army Qualification Test at 100, 200, 300, and 400 yards. Hopefully a few folks scored the coveted Rifleman badge for 210+ out of 250 (for family reasons I left early before the scores were in).



    WhiteKnight,
    glad you enjoyed yourself. Were you one of the crew that brought the ladies of the UNC-CH College Republicans? Give The High Road folks your impression of the course of instruction.

    Yep, I was one of those from UNC that brought the girls. I was one of the two guys from UNC that came for both days and I'm certainly glad I did. I most definitely would not have been able to do the 2nd day without the instruction that I recieved on the first, and I would have been a little more grumpy shooting all those targets on the first day if there hadn't been that promise of popups on the second.

    I completely enjoyed myself along with the other members of our group, and we plan to return to RWVA as soon as we can.

    The instruction was top-notch, and if it hadn't been for those helpful fellas running back and forth with their red RO caps on I probably wouldn't have ever learned how to use a Garand.

    The staff on hand were more than helpful and provided a ton of tips and helpful advice to help the participants shoot better. Several of them actively participated in the instruction given by Jack (from Fred's M14 stocks - I think of him as "Fred" myself)by just getting down on the darn ground and SHOWING us what he was talking about and definitely helped clarify things for me.

    If you can possibly make it to one of these events I highly suggest it. Well worth every cent!
