PROJECT APPLESEED MARKSMANSHIP CLASS OFFERED

A Project Appleseed rifle marksmanship clinic will be held on Saturday, July 24, 2021, at Walker Farm, 1059 Hinson Springs Road, Lobelville
Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. The clinic starts at 8:30 a.m. and will continue until 5:00 p.m.
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.
Both centerfire and rimfire rifles are allowed. About 200 rounds of ammunition is needed.
The cost for this one day clinic is $60 for adults and $25 for youth under 18. Discounts available for law enforcement, active and retired military and guard and more.
Additionally, there is a $5 per event range fee.
Thanks to industry partners, Project Appleseed is pleased to announce availability of 22lr for youth students at this event.

“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.
“Ideals such as integrity, commitment and personal responsibility are what founding fathers relied on to win our independence and to then make America a great nation. At Project Appleseed, we are dedicated to keeping these timeless values alive.
“Project Appleseed is a fast-growing, 501(c) (3) non-profit educational community of dedicated volunteers.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.”
