A couple quick questions. I just picked up my rifle today. (was waiting for delivery and wasn't sure if it was going to arrive on time).

It's a 10/22 with the junky leaf sights. I don't know of any place that stocks the tech-sightsin the PA area, do you?

I did pick up some truglo fiber optic replacement sights. I find they help with focusing a bit as my eyes won't focus on the stock frontsight. They also have anelevation adjustment screw. Not as nice as the tech-sights but better than stock ones.

I am going to try to have them swapped out tomorrow. I tried on my own but couldn't get the old ones out. Even using a brass rod and hammer.

I also could not find a GI sling, not sure if you have any available for sale.  I do have a cheap walmart "super sling".

Will the above be manageable?

Nugun, I am bringing a scoped spare 10/22, but don't have a spare sling.  I think the slings and tech sights are mail-order only.  I got by with a Walmart sling at my first (and only) Appleseed.  My daughter used a leather loop sling and did even better.  But her eyes are still good.  The tech sights are definitely worth it.  See you there.

PS  Per the Tech Sights instructions, the 10/22 front sight has to be drifted out left-to-right.  It also says to secure the barrel just below the front sight, and support the whole rifle to avoid bending the barrel.  Anyway, it worked for me

One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.    Plato

Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves.    Churchill

Nugun - I'll have a loaner 10/22 with the full AS setup if you need it.  French Creek Outfitters in Phoenixville has 1 1/4" sling swivels and the setup for the 10/22 studs if you are close to them.  They also have 1" nylon slings that would be pretty close to the USGI if not exactly the same.  See you tomorrow.

A sincere thank you to all the Instructors and IITs that volunteered there time last weekend.  I had a great time.  Just finally got around to posting up my blog reports on attending the Appleseed.

BTW, now that I have attended. I'd like to do a little more to support you guys. My blog is rather small. But I'd still like to put up a banner ad/link.  Do you have any graphics/logos for promotional use?

Come on out!  We'll lend you a Ruger 10-22 so you can take advantage of all of the training.  Just bring a brick of .22lr.
We do most of the shooting at 25 meters.  Sunday afternoon we go to 100 yards.  You can get some trigger time with you other rifles too!

ain't nothing wrong with a k98!  Maybe practice rapid dry-firing a bit before you come out.  Just don't work the bolt all the way back so's to lock it behind the follower, and go prone in your living room for a few minutes at a time.

Borrowing one of Frank's 10/22's is a good (and less expensive) way to go as well.  Reloads are certainly easier and faster.

I'm bringing my 91/30 this weekend, and a 10/22.  Bringing my father on Saturday, and he's insisting on using his M1 carbine - despite ammo costs.  I plan on using the 10/22 and the 91/30 for Saturday, and just the 91/30 for Sunday's longer range stuff.  At least ammo is cheap for the 91/30, and if your shoulder can take the abuse, I'd say to go for it!

This will be my first Appleseed, and depending on how things go, I'm hoping to find out more about what it takes to have one at a range closer to home.....

Thanks for all your help

We start around 8:30 a.m., so get there sometime before then.  The Manheim range has a fairly large parking lot, so you should have no problem parking with your camper on Sunday.  I hope this helps.  See you this weekend.

Any Pinch Pond campers?  I just rented a tent site and probably there is room for at least a couple tents per tent site.

See you there!
