Appleseed Information

I wanted to post this here to get the word out about Project Appleseed. In summary, marksmanship and history about the birth of America are taught.

https://appleseedinfo.org
Scroll down to find events by state.

Dad and I went to a "boot camp" at Ramseur NC summer of 2008. I thought I knew a lot about shooting. I was wrong. Learned a lot, met some great people, qualified on real AQT, wrung out rifles at 500m.

Most events are weekend events. Most events are also shot on 25m reduced targets, so less walking and time wasted.
Take a son or daughter or grandkid, help spread the word that we have a Great Country and freedoms that are worth protecting.

Our small club is hosting another Appleseed shoot this year (3 years running).
Several of our members are *Orange Hats.*

I'm a Rifleman and believe in this program. Great training and history to be had. Even if you think you are a crack shot, Appleseed will likely humble you...it sure humbled me.

Just completed my second and finally scored Rifleman. If not for a new rifle glitch, might have earn the Distinguished tab too!

Can't say enough about the program. Teaches everyone the basics of rifle shooting while also having a history lesson on the beginning of the Revolutionary War and some of the little know players.
