The soul was willing, but the flesh was screaming in pain.

I left halfway the second day because my elbows were swollen and hurting after hours of prone on both days. My back gave up on me in the middle of shooting standing and obviously my accuracy went to crap. The transitions are a bitch and even though I was wearing elbow soft pads, I have a banana under the skin of my left elbow right now. Note made to research for hard elbow pads.

If you have been thinking about taking this class, do not hesitate and go for it. I can give you a long song and dance about how good they are and how much I improved, but instead I will show you my progress in three pictures.

Saturday Morning.

Saturday Afternoon.

Sunday Morning.

And no, not even close to get the Rifleman patch. The timed magazine change stages murdered me with enough mikes to make it embarrassing. Of course I will go back again.

PS: I hit two out of the three Morgan’s shingles I tried.

One thought on “Back from Appleseed.”
  1. Congrats on the class but my condolences on the issues. If you have a good camping store near you a good sleeping mat can make all the difference when shooting prone or even just throwing one of those cheap garden kneeling pads under your elbow or in my case knee.

    Appleseed is a great resource and good on ya tightening up those groups!
