Pistolseed!



Log in to see fewer ads
I was able to attend a Pistolseed this past weekend. Great fun, and as per all Appleseed events, excellent event and training.


Course of fire is challenging, setup at 7 yards.

Round 1: Largest target, 10 rounds, 15 seconds with magazine change
Round 2: 2 targets alternating 2 rounds per target for a total of 10 rounds with magazine change, 15 Seconds
Round 3: Left hand only, 5 rounds in 15 seconds
Round 4: Right hand only, 5 rounds in 15 seconds
Round 5: 4 small targets, 2,2,3,3(same as rifle) with a 2 minute time limit and double points.

.22 pistols were the norm, equal representation from Ruger, Smith, and Browning.

I burned through over 500 rounds in 2 days, which is going a bit painful to replace...


Cheers!

Congrats! What did you enjoy the most? The least? Anything, in particular, you plan on doing for the next one if you attend one? No

Sadly the small supply of 22 I have had in reserves has made it into my training the past two years and is getting up to what the normal calibers cost if you're lucky.

Sounds like a blast!

The nearest one is 3 hours away... time for a road trip in the Spring.

As an old guy, I like not having to spend the day going from standing to prone, as what happens with a rifle clinic.

If I was going to run the pistol seed again, I would want to spend a little more time with my carry gun. As with all seeds, the .22 is much more affordable. 9mm is not only $$ but it's hard to find. After I qualified, I only ran 1 PQT with the Glock 19 and I scored a 164. I am sure that I could have qualified if I had ran a few more rounds, but that was more of an investment I was willing to commit. The person next to me on the line ran the entire weekend with a Glock 17, that was an investment of ammo!

Overall, it's always about getting better and I always learn something when I go to a seed.

I had the pleasure of attending a pistol event a couple of weeks ago and I was very impressed with the quality of instruction as well as the COF. It was challenging but also very attainable if you practice what they preach. My son and I both were able to earn our Pistoleer patch before the day was up. He was a double qualifier with a borrowed SW Victory and I triple qualed, twice with my Sig P320 X-carry in 9mm, sporting a Sig Romeo 1 red dot, and once with the borrowed Victory. We both owe our patches to the great instruction we received that day!!

My favorite part of the event was the final "Redcoat target". The first one of the day was nothing to brag about by any means, I think I dropped 5 out of 13 shots. I entered the event thinking I was a pretty good shot with a pistol. Much like my first rilfe event, I was humbled pretty quickly. However, the quality of the instruction came through and I was able to clean the final "Redcoat Target"!! It was the first time in my Appleseed career that I've cleaned a "Redcoat target", needless to say, I was pumped!!

This was a single day event and we did lots of dry fire drills, which helped keep ammo costs down. I also handload, so I didn't have to sell my firstborn to be able to shoot 9mm, lol.

All in all, it was a great event and I look forward to attending many more and hopefully being able to instruct a few at some point.
