    Come learn the fundamentals of rifle marksmanship - everything you need to know to engage a 20" target out to 500 yds or the Rifleman's Quarter Mile.

    Douglas Ridge Rifle Club will be hosting us on the Dynamic Range the weekend of the 21st & 22nd.

    We will also be doing a Full Distance Qualification day on August 7th. This KD event will be 5 rounds of sighters @100, 5 rounds of sighters at 400 and then timed full distance AQT's the rest of the day.

    Weather this weekend looks great.

    I have $1.65/50 .22lr for youth shooters available at the event.

    Come out and get some trigger time and hear about the precursor to July 4th.

    I will try and make it out on the 7th Kimber. I have never done a KD but as you might remember Harmony and I are pretty confident with the Ruger's at 25 yds!;) I have a brand new custom AR that might just work ok at longer ranges! :cool:

    Full distance shoot is next Thursday. What better way to spend some PTO than behind a rifle @400y?

    Ben, I've heard conflicting reports. Can you please explain the course of fire for the KD next Thursday? Thanks!

    We will start out prone on the 100 y line for 5 rounds - check targets. 5 more rounds prone - check targets. Shoot stage 1. Move to 200 - shoot stage 2. Move to 300 - shoot stage 3. Move to 400. 5 rounds - check targets. 5 rounds - check targets. Shoot stage 4.

    Shoot stage 4, 3, 2, 1, 1, 2, 3, 4.

    Right now I have 14 shooters so we do not need to do relays. Everyone will shoot/score their own target. We have the flexibility to shoot sighters @ 200 & 300 but once people are dialed in at 100 it shouldn't be necessary.

    I am not intending to do any points of instruction; however, I'm talking with Stan Pate about doing a presentation on reading wind and steps to get to 'the next level'.

    Wow. I really and truly wish I could come to this thing, but the fact that it's on a weekday is the death blow for me. I just cannot make it happen even though I have the day off.

    Well, I see from the Appleseed Schedule that there's another KD event in February next year, but as I recall wasn't the last KD event held in Winter at Eagle Creek a soaking wet mess?

    The 2014 schedule you're looking at on the Appleseed forum is a loop. That Feb date was 2014 and nothing is on the schedule for 2015 yet. I will certainly do my best to get another full KD event next year. I won't know anything until Nov/Dec time frame.
