A very Appleseed Christmas
« on: December 26, 2010, 10:44:13 AM »
Here's hoping every one had a very Appleseed Christmas!

I sure did. I got a Fred's rifleman's package, a laminate stock for my 10/22, and a copy of Paul Rever's Ride. 8)

Got to play with my new toys yesterday. Printed a Redcoat target and after getting the scope set for 25 yards (I found out at the AS at Broken Bow this fall that when I concentrate on the front sight the target doesn't get blurry, it completely disappears >:( ) I nearly cleaned the redcoat my first try. I say nearly because I got cute on the last D and tried to put the last bullet through the same hole instead of just letting the NPOA do it's job.  :wb: Then I went back to the house and spent the eveing reading the information that came with the Rifleman kit. What a great day.

The weather's good today so I think I'll put a few more holes in some paper today too.

Next step...get out my CAS timer and start doing some standing to sitting and standing to prone drills.
