Anyone interested in doing an Appleseed for Calgunners? This is an Awesome event and you will shoot alot. I shoot over 500 rounds at each Appleseed that I attended. It will give you a conditioning & equipment workout
PM me if your interested. I know a few Calgunners that have taken the challenge a few times and have Riflemens patch.
On another note, this is also the kind of event that you can bring your kids/SO and friends and first time shooters to.

PM me and let me know if your interested.

What is an Appleseed


Appleseed is a program that instructs Americans on the traditional rifle marksmanship skills that have been passed down from generation to generation, along with reconnecting today's Americans with the people and events of the Founding era. Participants are taught fundamental rifle marksmanship skills that are required to allow a Rifleman to be accurate out to 500 yards, with iron sights, standard rifle and surplus ammo. This is the traditional 'Rifleman's Quarter mile', which is an uniquely American Rifleman skill, that has been part of this nation from the very first days.

Most of the instruction at an Appleseed is conducted at 25 meters, at reduced size targets to simulate 100 to 500 yards. This well proven technique allows us to concentrate on the shooter's mechanics and less time walking a range. At those locations that allow for actual distance shooting, participants are often able to see first hand that the skills that they learn at 25 meters directly apply to actual distances out to 500 yards. These foundational skills are not being passed on to future generations, and so Appleseeds are great for new or experienced shooters alike.

What kind of rifle do I need? What kind of sights are allowed?

Appleseed is content-free, so in regards to sights: you can use any. Rifles? Well, you can use any safe firearm which can be accurately shot from the shoulder, from a .22 to a .32 (8mm). We're semi-auto and bolt-gun friendly. The important thing is that it works, so before you come to a shoot make sure you clean it, break it in (if need be), and lube it properly in preparation for the day. Due to the high cost of ammo, we reccommend using a .22 for the training on Saturday and if the range you are shooting at has a long distance range, then bring your center fire rifle for that on Sunday.

What caliber is best?

In a nutshell: they all are. Appleseed is not caliber-specific. It doesn't matter to us if you use .308, .30-06, .223, .22, 7.62x39, 8mm, .303 — they're all fine. Marksmanship and caliber are independent of each other. If you're a good marksman, you'll be able to hit with any caliber. So, if you have an AR-15, SKS, or 10/22 please feel free to join us. And when you bring your kids (up to age 20 shoots free)

Did you say "basic" class?

Some may say "basic", but a better term might be foundational. The skills taught at Appleseed are Traditional American Rifleman skills that have been unique throughout the history of this country. The American Rifleman is capable of shooting a 20" target out to 500 yards, or a milk jug at 250 yards, using a standard, rack grade rifle, surplus ammo, iron sights, from field positions, this is what your forefathers were capable of. These skills transfer to any kind of shooting and while they should be considered "basic" to most Americans, they are more often seen as "advanced" by today's shooters....This is what Appleseed is trying to change.

I went to an Appleseed Project shoot a few weeks ago at Burro Canyon. I highly recommend them to everyone. They teach shooting AND the history of the American Rifleman. It's good stuff. Take the wife and kids.

Hi folks, couple ?'s :


1. Can I sign up for Saturday only and add on SUnday later?

I would be a first timer. I'm in horrible shape, so I don't know if I can take two days in a row.


2. Would I be better served to use my 10/22 rather than my M1 Carbine or one of my AR's? I have plenty of ammunition, but wonder if maybe the .22 would be easier on the pocketbook for my first outing.

Thanks.

Well, I joined the RWVA and signed up for the Appleseed.....in Saugus.

It's only a 20 minute drive vs. 90 minutes for me.

I plan to go with my 10yr old son. Do we share rifle/ammo or each has his own?
Thanks.

Please do not plan to share rifles. The pace of Appleseed is such that you each need your own rifle for the event.
