There are those who will NEVER shoot well, for a variety of reasons.
I don't believe that.
The first thing they tell you at the CMP GSM Master Coach's Clinic is:
THERE ARE NO HOPELESS STUDENTS OR LOST CAUSES
In my years of coaching NG Rifle & Pistol teams, as a LE firearms instructor, and running HP and Vintage Rifle Clinics I've found the above statement to be true.

Thankfully that isn't the case with CMP GSM matches, they are big on - AS ISSUED MEANS AS ISSUED.
Appleseed is a good program, but I would like to see them push more toward normal carry or hunting rifles and not drift to match shooting. The As Issued Concept, puts everyone on the same playing field, instead of going the route of ISU shooting which requires a $2000 rifle and $1500 worth of other clothing.
I don't want to see shooting sports turn into a rich man's sport. I like the ideal of a $100 dollar rifle, shooting surplus ammo, on the winners' board.
