    I decided to support both nwfa and Appleseed by becoming a supporting vendor. I've asked to have some generic Appleseed threads moved here but Joe has been very busy lately.

    Appleseed is what should have been standard US training for the State militias all along, like the Swiss have. It also teaches Colonial/Revolutionary War history, of which I am a student. Then you do a course of target shooting from different rifleman"s positions, and the course can be done with a .22 LR or up to an 8 MM rifle

    My ancestors fought and one died that day back in 1775

    Appleseed ® is a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching rifle marksmanship and American history.

    We put on a two day shooting event called Appleseed ® where we teach the fundamentals of rifle marksmanship. You will learn:

    • field position shooting (standing, sitting/kneeling & prone)
    • how to use a sling for stability
    • the 6 steps to firing a shot
    • how to set up and use your Natural Point of Aim
    • how to zero your rifle using Inches Minutes and Clicks & Battle Sight Zero
    • and more

    At the end of the weekend you will have all of the knowledge necessary to hit a 24” target @500y or the rifleman’s quarter mile.

    Throughout the weekend we tell the history of the most important day in American history: April 19th 1775 and the start of the American Revolutionary War.

    It's a great weekend. I attended back in February and will be attending again in September with my wife along. Good history, good camaraderie, great instruction!
