Appleseed shoot is coming up in two weeks. I traded a couple emails with shoot boss concerning whether or not my rifle will be permitted, and it looks like I’m in the clear. The wording on their site is geared towards people out of state who are not familiar with the maze that is California’s assault weapons laws.
Having not attended an Appleseed before, I wasn’t sure how much ammo to bring. The average I’ve found from various message boards is 400-500. So I ordered a 420 round box of Federal M193, and I’ll bring along another hundred or so rounds just in case. Apparently, I’m also going to be in the minority in that I’ll be using a 5.56 gun for the entire event (rather than a .22), and even more so that I’ll be doing it with iron sights. I’ll be bringing along Ascalon’s upper, or even just a second rifle (just in case).
I’m unsure if I should grab a pair of elbow pads. Some have suggested that they are good for the amount of prone we will be shooting, but I’m leaning towards just relying on my shooting mat.
Not much else to report at the moment.
