Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version


Project Appleseed is coming to Rosebud, Missouri Dec. 10 - 11, 2011.

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 can see.  Learn the “Six steps to firing the shot.” Learn correct firing positions and proper use of the sling.

The clinic will be held at a Private Property at 3707 Thenhaus Rd. Rosebud, MO and will be a 2-Day Marksmanship Clinic.

Events start at 8:30 a.m.  Please arrive early to allow time for set up and sign in.  Hear some little-known Revolutionary War history and reaffirm your heritage.  Become a more influential citizen and make America a better place.

What you should bring and what you can expect:
A desire to learn and improve
A rifle (and a spare, if you have it)
Ammunition: At least 250 rounds per day
Scope OK. GI web sling strongly recommended
Eye and ear protection
