Thank you for your efforts beharney and thankyou Lefthanders Gun Club in Loami IL, and the board who voted unanimously to welcome The Appleseed Project into their facility!!!!!

Lefthanders is just the name of the range.

Hope to see you there for hopefully the first of many Appleseed shoots.

Still working with the members and Instructors to get our shoot scheduled and running.

Will answer all emails from those who already expressed an interest when we get the dates set

That's great!

Anyone have a recommendation for a left handed rifle for Appleseed events?

I'm left eye dominant but right handed. Searching the threads i see feedback both the Ruger 10/22 and Marlin 795 cause issues if shooting left handed...

Only left handed 22 I've found in the Ruger/Marlin price range is bolt action...

Thanks!

Thanks George63!

Yes, I replied to an old post and then found this new thread so also posted here since I wasn't sure how active the old thread might be :)

I'm going to go try out a 10/22 rental at a local range for an hour.  Looks like that's the consistent rifle available for rent at ranges around where I'm at.
