In today’s world of 24-hour news cycles, changing technologies and push-button gratification it is a challenge to stay connected to the values that our great country was built on.

At Project Appleseed™, we are dedicated to keeping these timeless values alive. We promote civic responsibility through the teaching of colonial history and the American traditions of rifle marksmanship. Even after all of these years, there is much to be learned from our forefathers’ examples of perseverance, commitment and civic virtue. With a full calendar of shooting clinics and events Project Appleseed™ is here to make sure these timeless principles live on for generations to come.
The cost for our weekend clinics is $65 for adults and $25 for youth under 18*. There are discounts for
law enforcement, active and retired military and guard and more*.

Participants are taught fundamental rifle marksmanship skills that are to allow a rifleman to be accurate
out to 400 yards, with iron sights or a scope, a standard rifle and surplus ammo. Most of the instruction
at a Project Appleseed event is conducted on the firing range at 25 yards, at reduced size targets to
simulate 100 to 400 yards. Students will learn rifle shooting from the standing, sitting, kneeling, and
prone positions, sight alignment, and breath control, along with safe gun handling, proper use of a sling,
and Revolutionary War history.

Please bring your own ear/eye protection, a rifle with sling, ammunition, rifle mat, bug repellent, hat,
sunscreen, a packed lunch, snacks, drinks, and plenty of water to stay hydrated.
A .22 caliber rifle is recommended, but you can use a centerfire rifle if preferred. About 250 rounds of
ammunition will be needed per day.
Range Fee: $15.00 per person for the event. (No fee for women, children, military, or physically
handicapped.)
