Project Appleseed Shoot 2018 Day #1
August 18, 2018$60.00
Skilled Marksmanship: An American Tradition:
You can’t write the story of America without including several chapters about the skill and bravery of our forefathers. On April 19, 1775, at Lexington and Concord, American colonists stood with muskets in hand and faced down the British forces that were trying to seize their arms. The colonists did it with grit, determination, and superior marksmanship. They were real marksmen: nobly and ably putting their skills on the line in pursuit of liberty.
We are the descendants of those fearless men and women who earned our freedom on the battlefield. We honor their pursuit of liberty by passing along the skills and knowledge that aided them in securing it. Today’s Rifleman understands that owning and mastering a rifle is part of his/her American heritage. Whether you’re a new shooter or a seasoned marksman, Project Appleseed can help transform you from a person with a rifle into a principled and skilled Rifleman.
Both Centerfire and 22 Rimfire rifles are allowed at this event.

Be sure to pack a lunch, snacks and plenty of water – The closest eatery is miles away, and we like to have a working lunch.
This is a controlled access range, so please ensure that you arrive on time or contact the shoot boss, so we can be sure someone is there to open the gate.
Leave your sidearm(s) in your vehicle.
No shooting before noon on Sunday – This will give us the opportunity to get some extra class/story time in.
Between the rifle and pistol ranges we have room for about 30 shooters, we expect this to fill up quickly.
Possibility of shooting out to 100yds – where .22lrs and center-fires are both welcome.
