In a recent thread (Appleseed Program Under Attack) one of our members posted if AS could get a shoot together he "Could fill the class'.
Well it looks as if it's going to be a GO!
RWVA is checking with the range (Calverton) to see if it's OK.

Sunday / Monday December 27 & 28th

OK...We're all in the same boat here:
1-It's the Holidays.
2-Money is tight.
3-It's cold.

MEMBERS HELPING MEMBERS!

As I stated in that thread we now have over 900 Members. If we can't get about 30 to 40 Members to sign up for this shoot we're a pretty sad group. If you can't make both days go for one day.
This shoot will most likely be a LIF only shoot. With such a short notice and not much time to advertise they won't have the time to get the word out.

Now is the time for LIF to show what it's truly made of. We've all gone to the range at one time or another and shot in the winter. Why not an AS Shoot?
This is going to take some real team work to show what we can do. TEAM UP LIF!

WE ASKED FOR IT, THEY'RE WILLING TO PROVIDE IT.

Also Remember : Ladies, Active Military, Under 21 Shoot For Free

Lets get a list going here. If you're in post your screen name. Please NO:
I'll try to make it.
I will if...
Let me see if...

As of this post it is not a Definite, but it look as if it will be so please lets get started.

ONCE AGAIN MEMBERS HELPING MEMBERS!

Plus $20 range fee each day too, right? I'm interested in coming one day, but still don't know about the $. Maybe I'll take my GF or my sister or friend and just hang out and help while they shoot.

I'm really considering signing up but not sure if I can get 400-500 rounds of 30-06 in that time. Plus that's a considerable expense in ammo alone, for me at least.

You won't need 400-500 rounds. Shoot at your own pace. A .22LR if you have one is best. You can also set it up to borrow a .22Lr.

I am in for both days!
Have not shot the rifle in quite a while and could definitely use the instruction.
bravo_juliet_mike, I may be looking for you that day  ;). Will definitely want to shoot my rifle but may need a break.
BTW - How and when do we sign up?

Don't forget that you will receive a certificate of marksmanship training that will allow you to get nifty things like Garands, M1 carbines, and 1903 Springfields directly from the CMP once you join an affiliated club. http://www.thecmp.org/

Jefe,

400-500 rounds is what you will need, right? I already have 150 rnds of 223 and about 200 shells for reloading.  I have a dpms dcm service rifle I have barely shot.  I bought it after one of the LIF members talked me into participating in rifle matches at peconic... he just forgot to mention that the match starts at 7am and that he was not longer into it...   Cabron!   :P

Anyways, if you don't mind a Bandido with a big Zombrero shooting next to you then count me in for Sunday shooting.

Do I need a .22LR?   I don't feel like dropping money to buy a new rifle when I have plenty of ammo and an AR
