(Actually, now that I think about it, wouldnt muzzle loaders be more apropos?)
I have been to a number of Appleseeds over the last several years and am an Instructor in Training with RWVA. There is much to learn at an Appleseed event regardless of the style of rifle you bring. You will find that it is a slight handicap in trying to qualify as a Rifleman. The middle two stages of the AQTs are 10 round seated and 10 rounds rapid prone. Working the bolt and reloading a bolt gun just takes longer. There have been a number of people who have qualified with a bolt gun and you will learn so much either way that I encourage you to sign up for a shoot. Check out : www.appleseedinfo.com
for shoots in your state. For a good independent report on by a recent attendee, check out www.carteach0.blogspot.com
Hope to see you soon on the Appleseed trail.
