Appleseed Project

I think I will go this weekend and give this a try, I have never been to one but have heard great things about it.

What is Project Appleseed?
Appleseed is a program that instructs Americans on the traditional rifle marksmanship skills that have been passed down from generation to generation, along with reconnecting today's Americans with the people and events of the Founding era. Participants are taught fundamental rifle marksmanship skills that are required to allow a Rifleman to be accurate out to 500 yards, with iron sights, standard rifle and surplus ammo. This is the traditional 'Rifleman's Quarter mile', which is an uniquely American Rifleman skill, that has been part of this nation from the very first days.
Most of the instruction at an Appleseed is conducted at 25 meters, at reduced size targets to simulate 100 to 500 yards. This well proven technique allows us to concentrate on the shooter's mechanics and less time walking a range. At those locations that allow for actual distance shooting, participants are often able to see first hand that the skills that they learn at 25 meters directly apply to actual distances out to 500 yards. These foundational skills are not being passed on to future generations, and so Appleseeds are great for new or experienced shooters alike.


  1. A buddy of mine and I are going to their end of May sessions at the Sac Valley Shooting Center. I was hoping to join their April 19th program celebrating the shots fired at Concord and Lexington, but I had prior commitments.

  2. You will love it! Bring a .22LR if you can- you will shoot 500+ round$

  3. Glad to Hear that Pete! I will be there too.
    At 1 pm pst all across this great land We will all fire a volley for everyman that died that day in their honor. Carry On!

  4. My last AQT was 1971. Wonder how I'd do on it now... dang, Pete! I s'pose I gotta do it now just to answer my own question. I'll letcha know how it turns out.
