State Laws to be aware of: State Assault Weapons Ban that is SIGNIFICANTLY MORE STRICT than the now expired Federal AWB.  For example, Colt  and all 7.62x39 AK47 type rifles are banned by name, and there is no such thing as "pre ban" when it comes to rifles banned by features.  Folks, please be careful with this.  There is no magazine capacity limit. Check State Laws.

Misc: 25m only.  Rimfire and centerfire rifles are allowed.  Get your spot quickly.  We only have room for 30.

I’d have to take Amtrak to the Hartford station. Not too expensive though.

But you still need to bring your own rifle...

I cannot overemphasize to anyone the importance of the Appleseed Project.

The Appleseed Project isn’t just about learning to be the best shot in your town. It’s about taking your talk and turning it into action.

After joining the RWVA (who puts on the Appleseeds), my wife and I had some long talks about what we could do. After a year, my wife is on a first name basis with our Representative and I’m going into the National Guard. It’s turned talk and ideas into action.

I'm in the process of rounding up several friends to attend one of these events. Looks like a CMP Garand "Clinic" writ large. Historically large, maybe.

In another thread, the idea of regional or chapter-based FR rifle matches was suggested. IIRC, JimRob was supportive of the idea. I'll have to look up that thread and see if anyone has developed the idea further.

Perhaps we could merge that idea into the Appleseed schedule, assembling FR shooters into teams or squads at the Appleseed events.

Seems like too good an opportunity to let slip by. Comments?

Yeah that would be a GREAT opportunity. Do you have the link to that thread?

See posts on last page (#100 - end)

The idea is still very raw; perhaps a separate thread proposing the idea would attract the attention of the BangList regulars.

We'll see if it grows any legs then.
