Went to my first Appleseed shoot as, basically, a complete newb to rifles. Unfortunately I cannot make it to Sunday and it was a slow start (how hard is it to be on time people?!?) so I only fired a little over 200 rounds and shot 2 AQTs. But then as many of you probably know good instruction doesn't require many rounds downrange, especially dealing with groups and starting from a novice level.

I took an iron sited (tech sites) 10/22 with swivels and a GI web sling, nothing more, and fed it CCI Mini Mag 40gr CRNs.

I did not do as well as I had hoped, mostly because I just can't consistently get a comfortable, natural, steady prone position. I really need to get to a damn outdoor range where I can fire from prone to practice.

This was my first "Redcoat" target, shot at the beginning prior to any marksmanship instruction and without a real time limit. It was pretty darn close to being a "300 yard" target and I got the headshot. Due to an ammo related stoppage I dropped a round (and then switched from automatch, which was used for that target, to mini mags for the rest)

This was my first AQT. It started out awesome, and then my prone was beyond terrible.

This was my second/final AQT. I screwed it up all kinds of ways for all kinds of reasons I won't get into. The score improved, though, despite screwing up and holding a round on the second phase where I was shooting well.

I will absolutely be going back. I will probably sign up for at least one more (and a full weekend) before the night is out. Great people.
