A friend of mine from high school and I are going to our first Appleseed event in about a month and I am getting pretty excited. Well, about as excited as a laid back guy like me can get. Anyway, I'm looking for a little advice from those of ya'll that have done one before. I am not a gear whore (mostly because I'm a cheapskate) so I need to buy a few things to be ready. I've been over the list on the Appleseed website but I don't want to have to bum anything while I'm there. Below are a few specific questions I have but any advice will be appreciated. BTW, I'm more of a pistol guy so a lot of this is new to me.
- I'll be using my early 90's 10/22 for the weekend. Right now I have a cheap NC Star 3-9 scope on it. Should I go ahead and get the BSA Sweet .22 from SWFA (just down the street from me) for $40? Will it help that much?
- Right now the trigger pull on my 10/22 is more like my staple gun than any other gun I own so I want to upgrade that. There are a lot of products out there that will help but I'm worried that my older model with the cast aluminum trigger housing might cause some fitment problems.
- I have a surplus shooting mat but should I invest in knee/elbow pads? I've been looking at the Alta brand. I know they may not be a necessity for Appleseed but it would make me more comfortable and could come in handy later.
If I think of anything else I'll update.
