I bring your Attention to the fact that I was the one being assaulted by Laylopro. But I do hear by promise that no rubbing of fellow instructors will be perpetrated by me. :D

Folks, here is a tally of the LTRs requested so far- if you can bring LTRs, let me know and I'll update the list.

Requested LTRs:
  17

Supplied LTRs: 
  FM- 6

  Nate- 5
  SAR_S.- 2

LTRs needed:
  8
  4
(... with relay shoot format, an LTR deficit is OK.)

I would be happy to attend, and loan my 10/22 to the cause...

...but my 10/22 is pretty built and tricked out. It doesn't have (and can't accept) iron sights. It's an optics-only gun now, and is rediculously dialed in. If that's acceptable, let me know, and I'll be happy to show up, and let someone shoot with my rifle. (I can pull the bipod, and attach a web sling no problem)

Student attendance estimate is 27 as of 5/26.   Allowing a few no shows, the number may dip.  Then again, six additional persons in two families plan to attend, so we may have thirty shooters.    Likely a relay shoot. 

Welcome aboard, Jamie- your rifle is suitable.

Alas, the short notice and family plans will keep me away.  My wife already sometimes complains that she is a 'range widow'.  I certainly don't want her to the point of saying she's an 'Appleseed widow'.
But, Leonidas, if you wan't to stop by my place in San Marcos, I can provide 2 LTR's, one with a scope and adjustable stock(good for smaller bodies) and one with Tech Sights.  I will send Leonidas a message now.....................steve

I have a prior commitment in Carlsbad from around 8am to 10am. I may be able to work out showing up in the PM.

I'm heading out on a weekend camping trip, I'm not sure if I could pick up those LTR's from Steve in time. I will be there on Monday. If anyone else has any ideas of how to get steve's LTR's to the shoot please post it. If not I will see what I can do about picking them up.

Line constraints will probably make this a relay shoot.

In that case, if shooters borrow rifles, we have less LTR demand; they could even borrow other students' personal rifles. 

So I think we are OK with the rifles we have pledged now. 

Thanks to all SD Crew for pitching in as able.

My first Appleseed was a relay, as you might recall FM.

I tried sharing my rifle with someone. It didn't work out too well with differing sight adjustments

I was able to secure 1 more LTR. This one is Iron Sights (Tec Sights), and has been bedded.

...so - I will be bringing 2 LTRs.

I remember that shoot, Savage S- "So... what is your target telling you???"

We'll do our best with the line capacity and available resources; good find, SAR S; thanks, all.
