While I didn't shoot 'Rifleman' (maybe next time), there were five people that did. Three of them being my brother, sister, and husband; hubby even did it both days. My family rocked it!
In order to obtain a Rifleman status you have to shoot a minimum score of 210 (perfect being 250). This score will place shooters in the top 5% in the country in terms of accuracy. In true Appleseed fashion, if a shooter scores 210 on the dot, they are thrown into the nearest body of water. The creek we were by wasn't very deep so instead they opted to douse them in water from water bottles. I believe there were four people that shot 210. It was a pretty hot day, kind of wish I was one of them!
People came from all over the state (and beyond) to join us and there was a great turnout. Check out the firing line.
Brandy and I were harrassed by some of the instructors because we like to shoot barefoot. They called it "brave" because hot brass hurts when it touches bare skin. We called it "tough"... or maybe it was because we find sweaty feet to be distracting. Whichever it was, it worked for us!
