There is one coming up here at the end of March and was wondering if it was worth going?

I've never been, but I like the concept.

I was thinking about maybe taking my wife along since women get to go for free. She could make it my birthday present (29th) :D

Yes I have been-
Did not know what I didn't know about our American heritage and/or about accurate shooting until I did!
Was great time-learned lots-picked up some superb training and made several new friends.
Very good idea taking the wife-doubles your firepower. Any kids-they shoot free also-if under 21.
Just a good experience-enjoy yourself.

I'm headed to one April 18-19 (Stinson, WV). Will be taking the AR-57 and PS-90. A co-worker is taking a few .22 rifles. Do you make it to the one last month Fuzzy?

I am going to one over Memorial Day weekend. It is a 3 day event instead of the normal 2 days. Both of my parents, 2 of my sisters, and my 3 brothers are all going. We are all shooting .22lr for cost effectiveness. My dad and I have build several 10/22's in to Liberty Training Rifles for this event.

A Liberty Training Rifle is a 10/22 with M1 style sights and a USGI sling. They look similar to this:

I've never been to one, but I've heard a lot about them and it was all extremely favorable. In fact, I've never heard so much as a single negative word about them. Let us know what you think after you go. :guns:

Will do!

Taking 6 or 8 types of ammo to sight in the rifles on Friday.

Any tips on highly accurate ammo that is available in bulk packs?

We are going to try out CCI Blazer for the first time; I have heard good reports about it.

For the .22L, we will be shooting CCI Mini-Mag.

CCI blazer 9mm smells kinda funny. That's all I can really report on that.

CCI Blazer 22lr worked great out of my 10/22. It would jam about one time per mag on 2 of my dad's :( Failure to eject. The empty case would stovepipe, and when the mag was dropped, there was a loose live round...

ETA: Here is a group of CCI blazer out on my 10/22. Range was 25 meters (82 feet). My 10/22 is the base $199 walmart special. I added some VQ trigger goodies and Tech-Sights irons. This is not too bad for a brand new rifle and a stiff crosswind:

Long weekend. The whole event was a bit interesting. Somehow today I managed to get a 215 on the AQT, so I got a Rifleman patch on my first attendance (using a scoped Savage .22L Bolt Action).

Funny, as how the only other person to get one was a co-worker who talked me into going. He was very modest, and shot quarter to nickel sized groups (he scored 246).

Good Job!

I am going to be using Irons. I think that the scope at 25M makes it a little easy...

True, but I think using the bolt action partially made up for it. The stock was a bit short for me making it a bit tough to hold my natural point of aim. I just about exceeded the time limit for stage 2.

Also, looking at the target, I think the instructor graded me with the .30 cal rule. I would have given myself a 212.

Scope at 25 m with a 22 is in fact way to easy. I can usually group 6 out of 6 everytime.

I would use the irons as well.
