Project Appleseed is dedicated to teaching every American our shared history and traditional rifle marksmanship skills.  Our volunteer instructors travel across the country teaching those who attend about the difficult choices, the heroic actions, and the sacrifices that the Founders made on behalf of modern Americans.

They are also reminded of the marksmanship skills and masterful organization that ultimately helped set the colonists on the path to success. Those who attend gain a better understanding of the fundamental choices faced by our ancestors as they began to set the stage for the nation we now enjoy.

Our rifle marksmanship program complements our history and heritage.  We teach the traditional skills of shooting with a sling in standing, sitting and prone positions. We try to coach our students into shooting an "expert" score on a scaled version of the Army Qualification Target that was used back through WWII.  We've had shooters as young as nine, and as old as 87.

The Appleseed course of fire is conducted at 25 yards, to simulate shooting at 100, 200, 300 and 400 yards.   This shoot is conducted with rimfire rifles.
