When I was still “occupying” Bob’s Gun Counter before consolidating all my blogging here, I made sure to mention that I was a gun enthusiast, and not a gun expert. Even though I write a bit for Shooting Illustrated, I still cringe at being called a “gun writer.” It all implies a level of expertise, competence, and knowledge that I do not think I’ll ever master in such a diverse and expanding field.
I am always on the lookout, however, for chances to learn, and Sean Sorrentino has helped organize a meet-up of gun bloggers and enthusiasts to participate at an Appleseed event on their home range in Ramseur, NC, on March 24-25. So far, I know the following blogs are going to be represented (besides this one):
- A Girl and Her Gun
- An NC Gun Blog
- Arma Borealis
- Arms are the Mark of a Free Man
- Newbie Shooter
- Knitebane’s Manor
Others may be signing up as well.
I’ve been meaning to do an Appleseed since I first heard of them a year ago, and finally got a chance to work it into our schedule so that both my wife and I can attend. It promises to be a great learning event for both of us, and I’d invite you to give it a try as well.
Oh… and dress warm.
