    Our full distance (400 yard) KD event will be at Douglas Ridge Rifle Club May 21 and 22. This is an all centerfire event. We will shoot 25, 100 and 200 on Saturday and 100, 200, 300, 400 on Sunday.

    It is strongly suggested that you have previous Appleseed experience and have earned your rifleman patch - but it is not required. All are welcome. If you haven't stretched the legs of your rifle past 100 or 200 yards, this is a great opportunity.

    I've never shot an Appleseed but shot CMP matches in the past. Should I be okay to go and what type of rifle are looking for?

    Mag fed, semi auto with adjustable sights (or glass) and an adjustable sling (GI Web sling) is ideal.

    That said any center fire rifle (up to 8mm) will do.

    The skills are taught on Saturday and Sunday, but Sunday is usually more about going over what was learned on Saturday and putting it to use doing more shooting.

    Active Duty and disabled are free. Otherwise the cost is $90 + $10 range fee if you are not a DRRC member.

    I just signed up! What is the ammo count? I shot over 400 rounds at an Appleseed event last weekend, but that was 22lr. The cost of centerfire ammo will be much more and I'll need to decide which rifle based on the ammo count/cost. 30.06 or 5.56.

    Crap. Won't be able to attend this year, as that's our anniversary weekend.
    However, I strongly recommend this to anyone that wants to really learn how to use their rifle. This clinic is worth every nickle.

    Reminds me of the scene from Speed where Sandra Bullock says 'What? You thought you needed another challenge?"
