    They really are a lot of fun to, as you put it, "pimp out," aren't they?

    What is Appleseed tuna? Sounds interesting.

    It is a rifleman training seminar, either one or two days. I've been several times, and always leave a little better of a shot than I arrived.
    It also teaches the history of the battle of Lexington and Concord, without being too over the top, just the facts. On the humorous side, it is partnered with the Revolutionary War Veterans Association, and says so on the T-shirt....which leads go odd questions from young sirmen at the base gym, lol.
    It is also free to military, vets, women and children.

    You'll have a blast!

    At first I thought an Appleseed meeting was some kind of local 'anti-gun' political movement - which kind of made Tuna's post a little disturbing.

    You ever get that feeling that you're about 2000 rounds of 22LR short of what you should have?

    I missed out on an incredible deal and now I feel I'm about 5000 rounds of 22LR short of what I should have.

    Well I don't own any guns,but I wanted to ask one question.
    Is the DSR 50 available for civilian purchase or is it strictly for the services?

    I found a couple of web sites that appear to sell to civilians. Availability could be a problem and they sure are not cheap.

    Ah. So all the .22 ammo is going to California. In Oregon we are still fighting over a single box of 50……..whenever we can find one on the shelves.

    Speaking of .22's. I have been pondering giving the son my old Ruger 10-22. Then i have a good reason to buy a new one for me. Right now a "Kidd classic sporter" is on my radar. Would by any chance anyone here have any familiarity with them? I am reluctant to throw that kind of money down for a .22.

    Dear lord $1100 for a 10/22!?

    I bought a Take-down model for $310 about 2 years ago. Haven't had the chance to shoot it yet. You can get a very basic synthetic stock 10/22 for $190, even in California.

    My thoughts exactly when I saw the price. I wouldn't save anything by getting Kidd components and building it myself. The rifle is more than a fancy stock. You get a top of the line barrel and a trigger that puts other rifles to shame. In short the rifle is built by one of the best in the business. More than likely the rifle will hold value too.
