    Default Appleseed Project - Chambersburg, PA

    The Appleseed Project, sponsored by the RWVA, an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit association, visits Chambersburg, PA for a 2-Day Marksmanship and American Heritage Clinic on September 11-12, 2010.

    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/she 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 can expect:

    * New Shooters - learn fundamentals and make quick progress.
    * Experienced Shooters - learn techniques to tighten your groups.
    * Experts – polish skills, become a RWVA Instructor in Training.
    * Everyone – expect to have a great time!

    Why should you come? To hear the story that every American should hear. About how your forebears took up arms, on the first day of the American Revolution, and did things no other people in the world have ever done. To learn things you don't learn in school - about that day, about the real start of the Revolution. According to John Adams, it was over before it started.
    Another reason... To meet fellow Americans who feel like you do, and to bathe in an association with real Americans that is lacking in your everyday life, so you'll go back home rejuvenated - and maybe with hope for the future, for the first time in years. We want to teach men, women, and children- bring the family to learn together!

    Cost: Walk-on fees are $80.00 for both days, or $50.00 for one day.
    Pre-register and pay online and save! $70.00 for both days, or $45.00 for one day. Two-day participants receive a free T-shirt!
    Shooters under 21, active military (including reserves and guard), and women shoot for FREE!

    Misc: Lunch available in the clubhouse. Bring extra water and light snacks. This range has a covered line!

    Rifles cased and left in vehicle until after Safety Briefing and until instructed to bring them to the firing line. Pistols left in vehicle for entire event. No loaded firearms on the range unless on the firing line and load command has been given. Eye and ear protection required. Starts at 08:30, please arrive early to allow time for set up and sign in.

    Shooting distance: most of the instruction will be at 25 meters. This range will allow for some 100 yard shooting on Sunday.

    Come on people of N.E. PA.

    Appleseed shoot at Palmerton Rod and Gun Club.

    Great value in rifle training,
    Be part of the growing movement to rediscover your American Heritage.

    This program began in the early part of this decade and presented 50 shooting events in their first year. In just a few short years later, April 19th, 2010 saw 100 shoots across the country in one weekend! Now just months after that event, Appleseed will be presenting their program across the country at 300 ranges.

    Maybe it is time you check out an Appleseed Shoot.
