Sigh....

So over at NC Gun Blog Sean points out an Appleseed event. Really close by. On the weekend no less. So now I am left with a problem. My long gun game is non existent in any real definition. For the .22LR first day? No problem. Colt (Walther) M-4. For the next day it gets interesting. Old .243 Winchester? Old .30-06? Go get a Colt 6940 AR? Sigh.... 

If you come I look forward to seeing you!

  1. It's a nice problem to have, though. Just sayin'.

    1. Rev- I think it would be better to take either of the old guns that have not been fired in several decades. To hear them, shoot them again from my youth would be priceless. OTOH, a backup while someone is trying to teach me if one of them breaks would be handy to have around.

  3. I 'believe' you can shoot the whole thing with a .22...

    1. I am told we will be getting out to 400 yards here on centerfire. We shall see. It's not until March, I will have time to figure it out.

  4. From what I've heard, they don't push for modern rifles all that much. If you ask, they'll probably tell you to bring the rifle you want to learn how to shoot best. I'd go with the one you have that you want to learn to run. Well, either that or get the 6940 if you want it. :)

    1. 45er- LOL! I do want to learn how to run a long gun! I think I will take an old one and have the 6940 for a spare. How's that for an excuse?

    2. If you're looking for me to argue about needing an excuse to buy a gun, you're looking in the wrong place. A 6940 as a spare? I wish!

  5. We do/teach a lot of exactly what the Appleseed group also does (position shooting w/sling, sight alignment: offhand, seated, prone), so consider a CMP club as another option and bring your M1 Garand! Or a "good" club (like ours) will have a bunch of them Garands, to train newbies on the manual-of-arms, or modern guns (AR) if the shooter is familiar with the safety-drill.
