Tacticool22 May Make Marlin Gear

The people over at Tacticool22 make some great things for the traditional Appleseed Liberty Training Rifle (LTR), the Ruger 10/22, but more and more Appleseeders are coming to the firing line on limited budgets and so are turning to the more accurate out of the box Marlin 795. This rifle is cheaper and can be […]

Gardnerville, NV Appleseed Shoot: Saturday After Action Report

Six a.m. came early on Saturday. I rolled out of bed, showered, dressed and threw the gear in the car that I kept inside overnight: my lunch and the rifles.

Packing up went well because we put GP upstairs so she wouldn’t freak out. We packed up my Walter, GB’s brand new Springfield XD Subcompact, the Mosin-Nagant, the Ruger 10/22 […]

Second Time: Washoe County Regional Shooting Facility

GB took me to the range again, but this time instead of going to the Indoor Safe Shot Lead-free Range here in town, we drove out to the Washoe County Regional Shooting Facility on Pyramid Highway. We got a late start on our range trip, again—haha. This time because GB was meeting with a brother […]
