"A Rifleman never stops learning, a Rifleman never stops teaching. A Rifleman continuously seeks ways to to protect the freedoms and liberties the Founding Fathers left us, to improve himself, his home, his family, his community, his state and his nation, everyday of his life. A Rifleman adapts, a Rifleman overcomes and a Rifleman persists. This is not just some fancy gilded rhetoric we throw around like popcorn and pennies. This is the code we live by here. There is nothing wrong, no matter how often the mass of talking heads tells you it is wrong, or outdated, or corny, stupid and cavemanish, with having a code to live by in your life. Modern Americans have forgotten their code. They have forgotten how to be Americans. We are here to help them remember."-Scout

"Natural Point of Aim", what it is, how to aquire it and shift it on to your target.
Firing The Shot by the specific steps required to make the shot. Including the correct use of your sights and your relationship to them. How breathing affeccts the impact of the round on target, the physical and mental aspects of making the shot, trigger squeeze and what happens in the milliseconds after you squeeze the trigger. All of these things will affect the impact of the round downrange. These are not new or suddenly discovered steps, they have been figured out over the last 400 years of firearms use by Riflemen.
We will talk about the math of making the shot. Understanding the relationship between your sights, the impact of the round on the target and how to make corrections to your sights. The "black magic" of actually turning the buttons and knobs on your rifle.
We will also discuss the shooters cadence whiile firing the shot, and the idea of shutting out everything in your universe except yourself, your rifle and the taget when shooting.

The American Revolutionary War and The Battles Of May
I want to talk about several of the battles that occurred in the month of May, during The American Revolutionary War. The Battle of Cedars, Megs Raid and The Battle of Waxhaws. These battles were part of the eight long years of The Ameican Revolutionary War. Only one, Meg's Raid was actually a successful battle given Patriot sucess status. The Cedars and Waxhaws were both British victories and both had serious ramifications for both sides.

Adding Your Protective Gear to You Training and Reminders on Preps
We will cover a variety of subjects tonight. I want to talk about training in inclement weather, with gear on, wearing protective eye wear and gloves. All of the protective gear you need to wear can make a big difference in how you perform, and can men the difference between making it to the end of gh event or not. Catching a secondary projectile in your eye can be a complete game changer or ender.
Want to remind folks to be working on their preps as well. Even just adding small items, or remembering to store water frozen in your freezer, it all helps.

In The Aftermath of an April 19th, 2016 Event in America
There has been a lot of discussion of late concerning what would happen if we had any type of an event which would cause local, state or federal government to go on high alert or actually shut down all, or portions, of our city, state or naation. We have seen a rash of "training" events lately and will undoubtedly see a lot more of them. The government is preparing for...something...and even if it is just an honest preparation for some event in the forseeable future, it is nonetheless disturbing and well worth taking the time to consider what you will do when and if something such as a nationl "State of Emergency" is declared.
Join us tonight to discuss what you can do to make sure you are preparing for events such as this and thnking about how you will respond to theem.

Such a good show.
The man who does this show is such a patriot and has a great way of presenting history. When he does the history podcasts (revolutionary war history) once in a while, I find them fascinating. Lots of other good stuff too. My only "constructive comment" is that I wish the audio quality were a little better. It's not quite clear and I have to play at a higher volume. But in spite of this, the content is great!
doesn't really matter how good content is only podcast. If the audio is bad like it almost always is using blog talk radio and it's just something I can't listen to.
Relevant to matters beyond Appleseed or even beyond rifle marksmanship in general. You're doing yourself a disservice if you're not listening.
