After a bit of a scheduling hiccup, this past weekend GFSSC hosted a Known Distance Appleseed at their 600yd silhouette range. I want to thank the GFSSC for being a stalwart supporter of the program, and for giving us exclusive use of the silhouette range.

Ken and Scott arrived early Saturday morning, and much like the last few KD shoots we’ve held at this range, the mud proved challenging! We kicked off Saturday morning with a version of the shingle for Morgan’s riflemen. Shooters got one shot, standing, at an 8” plate hung at 200 yards. Ken drilled it, cold bore, standing. Bravo Ken!

Despite the cold rain, Ken and Scott toughed it out, gathered DOPE on their rifles, and learned to read and compensate for the wind. Great Falls treated us to steady 5-8MPH winds  at 7 o clock all weekend, which proved perfect for learning to adjust for wind. It was truly a pleasure working with both of these fine gentlemen, and I hope to see them again in the future.

I'll be at an Appleseed in Texas that weekend; however, if we need loaners I can help out there.

I wouldn't order one from anyone.  Go to a store and actually hold them.  I think my local Walmart has them both.  A couple of the guys at the counter are even good. ;)

I would rather go to a decent local shop if you have one.

If you have good eyes you can order Tech-sights from the Appleseed store or straight from Tech-sight.  You need to hurry to get it in time to install them.  If you are putting a scope on it I recommend the EGW or the DIP products mount that allows you to move to scope far enough forward.

Let us know what you get and the way you want to go for more help.  There may even be an Appleseed volunteer near you that can give you a hand.

HUZZAH!

Well done Herb.  I am proud of your efforts. 
I am glad the paperwork finally got straightened out.

In this case, it was the Shoot Boss getting impatient with the speed of the at-sea internet connection, not letting the magical promotion machine do its job. 

Or, said another way, PEBKAC.

Just a update on this range, if any of you are wondering. I tried to put this together and had trouble getting instructors to follow up with me and or return my calls emails. Probably just a little to much for them. TO bad but i know everyone is busy. The Local VFW Post 2528 was willing to help in any way possible.

I came to the opposite conclusion, ha. The only Ruger parts I was happy with in the end were the bolt and receiver.

Feed throat kits are a consumable in my view though.
