Probably not to Allemans,,,too far. I was just looking at a private range closer to me for an AppleSeed that wk/nd. Range is long, 400yds., but kinda narrow at the firing line. That's what determines the number of participants,That , and the number of instructors. On those two points each shoot can only accomodate so many shooters. As the AppleSeed graduates more instructors, shoot opportunities will expand. Too, more clubs and private ranges are becoming familiar w/ the program and looking on it w/ favor.
Get over to Allemans, and report back.
That is all.

I was at this Appleseed event this past weekend, April 18th & 19th. Had a great time and learned A LOT. A ton of info in a short period of time, but certainly worth the $70.

Anyone else out there go to this shoot? I know I met / camped with a few FALers there.

(I was the short guy with the beard, shooting an L1A1 the whole weekend.)

Yup, I was there. I was the guy who wanted to talk with you about FALs. Busy weekend, wasn't it?

I wanted to ask you about the regulator, as mine is not hand tight. I assume that there is a tool for this use. What should I get to be able to turn the regulator? Thanks.

Hey Mark,
Good to hear from you. It sure was a lot to take in during a single weekend. I had been planning on catching up with yourself and some others on Sunday, but there was less time then than on Saturday.
Your gas regulator is not hand tight? Have you taken it off? Perhaps it needs a good cleaning? Mine turns rather easily, but I have seen a tool for turning the gas tube nut (I think that's what it's called, down next to the carry handle with similar ridges). I thought I was ordering one once, but it was from an Austrian cleaning kit, and my gun is British. It was meant to grab the ridges, so I wonder if that would work for you.

What gun do you have? Have you had a chance to take it to the range much?

I'm relatively new to my L1A1, but the more I learn, the more I like it.
Talk to you soon

Yeah; it was a busy weekend, and a long one.

I think that I told you that I had just got it, because I had heard good things about FALs, and wanted someone to get me familiar with it... which means that, no, I have not taken it to the range.

It is an Israeli Arms, which means metric. I have a few mags, but want to get more. I have not taken off the regulator: don't know how. It might need cleaning: I would not know. It sounds as if there is a tool, as the regulator definitely has ridges; where can you get one?
