Project Appleseed™ – Anniversary Shoot

April 22 @ 8:00 am - April 23 @ 4:00 pm

Learn the essentials of shooting a modern rifle from multiple positions (standing, kneeling, sitting, prone), 6 steps to firing the shot, breathing and trigger control, natural point of aim, inches, minutes & clicks (or how to zero your rifle in 3 easy steps), range estimation, trajectory and a whole lot more!

No matter your current skill level, this class will give you the tools to improve, based on proven techniques. Will you take the challenge and earn the coveted title of “Rifleman?”

Project Appleseed™ is a nationwide program that teaches rifle marksmanship skills that have been passed down from generation to generation and reconnects Americans with the people and events of colonial America. Though most shooting is done at 25 meters, students are taught the disciplines that allow a Rifleman to be accurate out to 500 yards using a standard rifle with iron sights and surplus ammunition. This ability is traditionally known as mastering the “Rifleman’s Quarter Mile.”

Teaching is performed by multiple instructors, each with hundreds of hours of training, to give you a unique opportunity to improve skills safely and effectively. So join us, hear some little-known Revolutionary War history and help us pass on the traditions of the American Rifleman.

What you should bring:
A desire to learn and improve.
Centerfire rifle, .22 rimfire rifle (or both)
Scope OK. GI Web Sling strongly recommended.
250 rounds of ammunition per day (for each rifle)
Eye and ear protection. Mat or ground cloth.
Hat and sunscreen. Rain gear, layered clothes.
Water, lunch, snacks. Some friends!

Appleseed Fees: Adults – 60.00 (Saturday and Sunday included!)
Youth Under 18 – 20.00
Gun range fees not included ($15/day adults, $10/day youth)
