For the new shooter, we can teach you to use your rifle safely and also be able to hit your target. For the seasoned shooter, we can teach you to shoot more accurately - even out to 500 yards.
Project Appleseed can help transform you from a man with a rifle into a Rifleman. A Rifleman is more than a man (or woman) with a rifle. A Rifleman understands that owning and mastering a rifle is part of his heritage as an American. And he knows why: This is a nation founded by Riflemen -- men and women skilled in the use of arms.
Those skills served the colonists well when 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. Throughout history, Riflemen have embodied personal responsibility and been pillars of their communities, characteristics that are becoming ever more rare in our nation.
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. Come to one of our shoots and score 210 or better out of 250 on the AQT (Appleseed Qualification Test) and you can earn your Rifleman’s patch.
During breaks between shooting, we’ll teach you the true story of the nation that was founded on April 19, 1775, and why liberty was so important to the founders that they would risk everything for it. Project Appleseed believes that the essence of being an American is living up to the ideals of our founders and fanning the flames of liberty.
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. Some shoots are mixed centerfire and rimfire, and some are rimfire only. At Sanner's Lake, we welcome both centerfire and rimfire shooters. Learn the six steps to firing a shot, natural point of aim, steady hold factors, and much more.
Our POC for the Appleseed program at Sanner's Lake is Mr. John Eger, firstname.lastname@example.org .
