The Appleseed Program is designed to take you from simply being a rifle owner to being a true
Rifleman. All throughout American history, the Rifleman has been defined as a marksman capable
of hitting targets from 500 yards away! This 500-yard range is traditionally known as "the
rifleman's quarter-mile;" a rifleman can hit just about any target he can see.
Learn the “Six steps to firing the shot.” Learn correct firing positions and proper use of the sling.
Hear some little-known Revolutionary War history and reaffirm your heritage.
Become a more influential citizen and make America a better place.
Bring the .22s for instructional portion of the Appleseed. There is a 200m range so bring the Centerfire for later. Lunch is what you bring to the range along with water.
What you should bring:
A desire to learn and improve.
Centerfire or .22 rimfire rifle, or both.
Scope OK. Sling strongly recommended.
250 rounds of ammunition per day, per rifle.
