State Laws to be aware of: It is illegal to possess a concealed firearm, loaded or not, on or about the person without a handgun permit recognized by Oklahoma. Oklahoma recognizes all other state’s permits. Oklahoma law provides several ways of transporting a firearm in a motor vehicle that are affirmatively legal with or without a permit: As long as you are not a convicted felon, you may legally transport a rifle, shotgun or pistol open and unloaded, which Oklahoma law defines as in plain view, in a case designed for carrying firearms that is wholly or partially visible, in a gun rack, or in an exterior locked compartment or trunk.
Also, any person except a convicted felon may legally transport a rifle or shotgun concealed behind a seat of the vehicle or within the interior of the vehicle, as long as it is not clip, magazine, or chamber loaded. Handgun permit holders may legally transport a clip or magazine loaded rifle or shotgun in a vehicle.
Check state laws for other pertinent legislation.
What to Bring: Please see the following list of items to bring to your Appleseed event - http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=101.0
Misc: This event will be held at Excalibur Sporting Goods in Afton, OK. Just yards from the range is a full-service gun shop where you will be able to purchase ammo, GI web slings, sling studs/swivels, Tech Sights for the Ruger and Marlin, and complete Liberty Training Rifles based on the Ruger 10/22 and Marlin 795. Mike will install any parts you purchase from him. Excalibur’s air-conditioned/heated classroom will be available for our use over lunch and for breaks. Most of the event will be shot from 25 meters. However, full-distance shooting techniques will also be taught. Shooters may use either center fire or rimfire rifles for this event. We will be shooting from an uncovered line, so bring your umbrellas, sun shades, and pop-up covers if you have them. Our hosts will be serving hot lunches on Saturday for a small price. Snacks and beverages will also be available for purchase. Shooters should bring their own lunch on Sunday.
In order to keep the current nationwide ammo shortage from impacting Appleseed attendance, we will attempt to make .22 LR ammo available for purchase at every event. We also have plenty of .22 "Liberty Training Rifle" loaners available for those who do not have a rifle to bring to the event. To reserve ammo and/or loaner rifles, contact Daniel Hensch at least a week prior to the event.

No pets allowed
