Just to let folks know that the February 2011 Appleseed scheduled for Chaplin has been moved about 15 minutes away to Lebanon, CT. This is the same place we had an excellent event in January.

There is another event the same day in Colebrook CT for those in that part of the state.

So I did an Appleseed this weekend, over all a good experience, for new shooters, there is alot of good basics to learn.

I strongly suggest you get a semi auto rifle, it makes life much easier.
