So I am getting ready for Appleseed in two or so weeks. The range is good to 450 yards. If I read all the stuff about this weekend correctly the first day will be rimfire and the second centerfire.
I thought I would take a simple (to me) .22LR for the rimfire portion.
REALLY? This is a .22 "Tactical" Rimfire magazine? Prey tell what makes it so? Yes it cost enough, that is a given for tactical stuff, but it's not even black.
So how about this:
Really CCI? They are not even black! The box is cool and all that but can't you do better?
I am going to run all of this stuff through this:
A Winchester Model 9422 in .22WMR. I love this rifle and it is one of the first I shot in my youth. I would hate for it now to get beat up. Interesting how what was once a meat gun and beater becomes a safe queen.
So for the second day centerfire shooting it appears the M-1 will not be here and I would not take it without my friends approval and once over.
I have hit up my Curmudgeon at large. I am not a long gun person. He offers a couple of .243 Winchesters. Here is one:
Can't wait to see what the other one is! More important than that is the fact that I know he wants these rifles to sound a loud report again. He wants to know that his rifles still work and wants to know if I am up to the challenge of running them well.
I am humbled and hope I am worthy of the challenge.
