I went to the Ruger website to vote for the newest Ruger 10/22 50th Anniversary design. There were some definitely cool design, but I went with the one from Gary in Michigan...it's a 10/22 designed for the Appleseed Project. As you guys know, I unconditionally support the Appleseed Project. I think 1 10/22 designed as the Appleseed "Liberty" rifle would help boost the program. Check it out for yourself!
Other good news on my long distance rifle project is that CDI Precision Gunworks now has the bottom metal to convert my FNH TSR .308 to the AI magazine standard. That'll make the TSR consistent with my Ruger Gunsite Scout on mags. Yes, the mags are expensive, and yes, they are bulletproof. I'll be interested to see if the Ruger polymer versions will work as well (the Rugers, duh, work fine in the Ruger).
Time to get to pod'ing...LOL!
