Fall 2016 Florida Project Appleseed

Post by stoneknives » Fri Sep 16, 2016 11:09 am

Project Appleseeder's and Appleseed Instructors while the shooting season is slowing down up north our season in Florida is firing up.

Old favorites and new locations, regular 'Seeds, IBC's and RBC's lots of shoots on the calendar. Get your spot on the line and bring a friend or 7.

Don't forget Groupon is still going till Oct 15th....But the ticket is good for at least a YEAR. That's 33% OFF...

Online registration ends 24 hours prior to the event, in order to process paper work. If you miss it, you can still register at the door

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO PROJECT APPLESEED SHOOTERS AND INSTRUCTORS.

Until further notice there will be a suspension in the use of Smith and Wesson model 15/22 rifles at ALL Project Appleseed events.

Date: September 14, 2016

To: All Appleseed Instructors

Subject: TEMPORARY BAN ON SMITH & WESSON M&P 15/22 USE AT APPLESEED

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, THE USE OF SMITH AND WESSON M&P 15/22’S AT AN APPLESEED IS HEREBY BANNED UNTIL SMITH & WESSON FORMALLY INVESTIGATES THE PROBLEM AND ISSUES AN OFFICIAL CORRECTIVE ACTION. THE AOC WILL NOTIFY THE CADRE WHEN THIS BAN IS LIFTED.

The AOC has received a rash of reports regarding safety issues with the Smith & Wesson M&P 15/22, including a shooter getting injured as a result of an out-of-battery discharge (see reports below).

As responsible Instructors, we have a duty to maintain safety at our events. If we know a rifle to be potentially unsafe, we shouldn’t allow it on the line at all.

At this time the least risk course of action would be to exclude the Smith & Wesson M&P 15/22 from future events until Smith & Wesson formally investigates the problem and issues an official corrective action.

The Appleseed for St Augustine on Dec 10-11 has been canceled by the Ancient City Shooting Range to put another HI-Speed LOW-Drag course in to our slot, which we reserved months ago on the calendar.
