Welcome to Project Appleseed
Building a Nation of Riflemen
Can you consistently hit a 20-inch target at 500 yards? A Rifleman can.
A Rifleman is more than just a man (or woman) with a rifle. A Rifleman understands that owning and mastering a his rifle is a part of his heritage as an American. And he knows why: This is a nation that was founded by Riflemen, men and women skilled in the use of arms.
It was that skill which served the colonists so well as they stood up to the British on April 19, 1775 at Lexington and Concord and routed the British forces that tried to seize the colonists' arms. They did it with grit, with determination, and with superior skill in marksmanship. They pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to the task. And they didn't stop until they had won. Riflemen took and take personal responsibility for their lives and were and are pillars of their communities.
At Project Appleseed, we want to return America to being a nation of Riflemen. And we want you to join us.
A Rifleman can take a rack-grade rifle and hit targets out to the rifleman's quarter-mile. If a rifleman can see the target, he can hit it. Project Appleseed runs a series of programs to help transform you from a man with a rifle into a Rifleman. To become a rifleman, come to one of our shoots and score 210 or better out of 250 on the AQT (Appleseed Qualification Test).
During breaks, we’ll teach you the true story of the nation was founded on April 19, 1775, and why liberty was so important to the founders that they would risk everything for it. If you want to be an American, you need to understand what "being an American" is really about - and why living up to the ideals of the founders is so important for modern Americans.
Weekend Marksmanship clinic: An intensive weekend program shot from three positions at 25 meters, but with targets scaled to simulated shooting at 100, 200, 300 and 400 yards. Learn the six steps to firing a shot, natural point of aim, and steady hold factors.
Known-Distance Workshops: A weekend-long program that teaching the secrets of shooting out to 500 yards -- target detection and ranging; measuring and compensating for wind; making the shot; scopes and reticles; MOAs and mils, boxing your sights, battle-sight zero and come-ups, and more. Centerfire only, shot at 100, 200, 300 and 400 yards.
Rifleman's Boot Camp: An intensive, week-long program that combines the Weekend Marksmanship Clinic and the Known-Distance Workshop, along with special topics like shooting at unknown distances. The RBC puts you on the fast track to becoming a rifleman. You'll shoot at 25 yards, as well as at 100, 200, 300 and 400 yards, and longer if the range is available. You'll be taught all the intricacies of shooting at both known distance, and unknown distances. You'll also get personalized attention in shot diagnosis.
What is really important is that when you decide to come to one of our events, you need to talk friends, neighbors, relatives, or spouse into coming with you. We need everyone possible to come, if we are to once again become "A Nation of Riflemen".
There's not much doubt that our country for a long time has being 'going off the rails' more and more; that the current future we face is far different from what the riflemen of old intended; and that if we want to get back on track, a substantial number of Americans need to get back in touch with their heritage, so that America will once again become the nation she once was.
