Appleseed Events


Appleseed™ events offer the best precision rifle marksmanship instruction available anywhere. And the cost is only a fraction of that for any other weekend of any kind of firearms training. In addition, you will learn of the events of the first day of the Revolutionary War and the sacrifices made by those patriots who bequeathed the precious heritage of liberty to us. This history is invaluable for children, as well as for adults. It may even change your life.

This clinic is oriented toward experienced shooters as well as beginners.
(You may be surprised to discover that there is much to be learned, even for experienced shooters.)
