Project Appleseed Flyer 2019
Project Appleseed is coming to Pensacola, FL ESCAMBIA RIVER GUN CLUB 2-Day Rifle Marksmanship Clinic. The Shoot start at 08:30. Please arrive early to allow time for set up and sign in.
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.
What you should bring:
- A desire to learn and improve.
- A rifle (and a spare, if you have it).
- Ammunition: At least 250 rounds per day.
- Scope OK.
- GI web sling strongly recommended.
- Eye and ear protection.
- Mat or ground cloth.
- Hat and sunscreen.
- Rain gear, layered clothes.
- Water, lunch, snacks.
- Some friends!!
What you can expect:
- New Shooters – learn fundamentals and make quick progress.
- Experienced Shooters – learn techniques to tighten your groups.
- Experts – polish skills, become an RWVA Instructor in Training.
- Everyone – expect to have a great time!
