The Appleseed Project, a group which holds events around the U.S. to teach people how to shoot like a rifleman, is coming to Gardnerville, a town not far from me. They’re holding a three-day event and it’s FREE for female shooters, so I registered. Here’s a link to their website if you’re interested: http://www.appleseedinfo.org/.
Now all I need is something to shoot while I am there!
They recommend a 10/22 for the first day and something that shoots longer distances for the second day. I’ve been looking around for .22’s. Safe Shot Indoor Range has a pink Ruger 10/22 for sale. Cute! And Scheel’s had a Savage 10/22 with scope and zippered padded bag for about the same price as the pink Ruger. Walmart is sold out of Ruger 10/22s, but has a Mossberg Plinkster for sale. The Plinkster gets great reviews online and is uber-cheap, only $107. Buying that would leave me some money left over for ammo!
I’m a bit nervous about going. I haven’t had any formal shooting instruction. I’ve just been mooching guns, ammo and lessons off of my boyfriend, GB. I’ve only been to the range four times and only two of those times have I shot a gun that actually belonged to me ( I told you I was a mooch!)
