So the next two weekends are super busy. This coming one will be a new shooter class on Saturday and the full day CCH on Sunday. The weekend after that will be a two day Appleseed course. The more I can do now in increments to prepare for Appleseed the better off I will be.
The M-1 may show up before then, but I have no ammo and I would really like for Murphy's Law to school me on the operation and give it the once over before I whip that rifle out.
So for now after visiting the Curmudgeon at large he whips these out:
A Remington Model 742 and a Winchester Model 100, both chambered in .243 Winchester. "Two is one and one is none" for training on the road and so 300 rounds of ammo arrived today. The other component is the magazines for these rifles. I found some for the Winchester on-line and ordered two. Seeing the Internet debate on Model 88 vs. Model 100 magazines led me to simply order 2 Model 100 mags.
I have read just about everything on what to bring and how to prepare for this, but does anyone have anymore insightful tips? I fully admit I am not a Rifle person (yet). I hope to become one though!
