They also have a similar item for the AR-15. I have them on my Garand, M14 and AR-15 and they work well.

Thanks from Dougboffl

I'll be picking up a web sling for the Appleseed. Watched a bunch of videos about the events and the instruction is clearly based on using that type of sling. Will save the M1907 for the M1A.

Before my first Appleseed I took their checklist and added other stuff I wanted to bring, then modified it for the next two. It might help answer your question:

Must have:
tickets/paperwork - release form
Eye protection
Hearing protection (amplified earmuffs really help hearing range commands)
Rifle (iron sights should be zeroed 1/2” high at 25 meters)
500 rds ammo; (more like 200 for a one day event)
2 Mags at least (for magazine fed rifles);
GI-style web sling (or traditional sling);

Important:
A teachable attitude
staple gun/staples for putting targets up
elbow pads or shooting jacket or foldable soft towel
weather-proof ground cover (carpet works well);
lots of water (stay hydrated);
aspirin/ Ibuprofen;
clothing for expected/possible weather; electric socks, gloves, ski mask, hat, disposable handwarmers
light lunch

Should have:
instructions for your rifle (if you have them);
something (large garbage bags work) to cover your rifle to keep blowing sand or rain off;
backup rifle and ammo (if you have one)
small notebook;
pen, sharpie (to mark targets)
snacks;
wet wipes;
bug spray

Nice to have:
Folding chair; (really nice)
sun screen;
chap stick

Gun related stuff:
cleaning supplies/ lube;
sight adjust tools;
[tools/spare parts]

We encourage you to show up prepared: rifle cleaned and lubed, fully broken in (a few hundred rounds having been fired with it). And, not least, know the laws of the State you are going to and only bring that which is within the law.

Thanks from LavaTech

I don't believe anyone can get into their web sling faster than one who knows how to use a 1907 sling.

I know what number holes I need for prone, sitting or standing and can adjust for what I need in seconds.

Seems pretty simple to me.

Thanks for the checklist, I'll use it for prep for my first Appleseed this April. I do have a clarification question regarding the zeroing info you mentioned.

Based on a one inch square as a sighting in target AND using a six o'clock hold, 1/2" high would be right through the center of the square. Is that what you mean by 1/2" high? I'll be sighting in this weekend at a 25 meter indoor range so I'd be grateful for a clarification.

Regards,
Bill

That's it. You'll be shooting at 1" squares a good bit and they teach a six o'clock hold.

Just saw your thread about sitting and prone rapid stages - Appleseed does both of those from standing with an unloaded rifle (didn't want to hijack the other thread).

For those with knee problems they can work around it. We had a guy that had been in a motorcycle accident and he couldn't do seated or kneeling, so he shot the seated stage while standing. Tough to get a good score that way but at least he was still in the fight.

Thanks, I don't have a knee "problem" per se but when I practiced dropping into sitting and prone positions in my home I heard two distinct pops from my knees. No harm done (yet). It's not an exercise I am used to and I am about 25 lbs overweight.

Regards,
Bill
