    The Appleseed Program is designed to take you from simply being a rifle owner to being Rifleman. All throughout American history, the Rifleman has been defined as a marksman of hitting targets from 500 yards away. This 500-yard range is traditionally known 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 sling use.
    Hear some little-known Revolutionary War history and reaffirm your heritage.
    Make America a better place.

    As of right now there are only three people registered for this shoot. What does this mean to you? There will be three instructors present so this is a great opportunity for almost one to one instruction.

    If you want to tune up for Highpower or Silhouette season or are new to rifle shooting or just want to be a better American by learning the Tradition of the American Rifleman, then this is for you.

    Weather Report: Mostly sun and high 30s, no excuse here!

    Once spring comes this location will be hard to get into; April is already sold out, don't miss the opportunity now.
