  • Fall 2016 PROJECT APPLESEED Florida (So Far) More shoots still to be added...






    Building a Nation of Riflemen

    Can you hit a target at 25 yards? How about at 500 yards? Whether you are new to the shooting sports or a seasoned shooter Appleseed will be able to teach you a thing or two.

    For the new shooter we can teach you to use your rifle safely and also be able to hit your target. For the seasoned shooter we can teach you to shoot more accurately - even out to 500 yards.

    Project Appleseed can help transform you from a man with a rifle into a Rifleman. A Rifleman is more than a man (or woman) with a rifle. A Rifleman understands that owning and mastering a rifle is part of his heritage as an American. And he knows why: This is a nation founded by Riflemen -- men and women skilled in the use of arms.

    Those skills served the colonists well when they stood up to the British on April 19, 1775, at Lexington and Concord, and routed the British forces that tried to seize the colonists' arms. They did it with grit, with determination, and with superior skill in marksmanship. They pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to the task. And they didn't stop until they had won. Throughout history, Riflemen have embodied personal responsibility and been pillars of their communities, characteristics that are becoming ever more rare in our nation.

    At Project Appleseed, we want to return America to being a nation of Riflemen. And we want you to join us.

    DO NOT FORGET 'Rifleman s Boot Camp' in Tallahassee 2017 January 29 to 3 Feb, five full days of shooting.

    Marksmanship Clinics

    A Rifleman can take a rack-grade rifle and hit targets out to the Rifleman's quarter-mile. If a Rifleman can see the target, he can hit it. Come to one of our shoots and score 210 or better out of 250 on the AQT (Appleseed Qualification Test) and you can earn your Rifleman’s patch.

    During breaks, we’ll teach you the true story of the nation that was founded on April 19, 1775, and why liberty was so important to the founders that they would risk everything for it. Project Appleseed believes that the essence of being an American is living up to the ideals of our founders and fanning the flames of liberty.

    Weekend Marksmanship Clinic: An intensive weekend program shot from three positions at 25 meters, but with targets scaled to simulated shooting at 100, 200, 300 and 400 yards. Some shoots are mixed centerfire and rimfire, and some are rimfire only. Learn the six steps to firing a shot, natural point of aim, steady hold factors, and much more.

    Known-Distance Workshops: A weekend-long program that teaches the secrets of shooting out to 500 yards -- target detection and ranging; measuring and compensating for wind; making the shot; scopes and reticles; MOAs and mils, boxing your sights, battle-sight zero and come-ups, and much more. Centerfire only, shot at 100, 200, 300 and 400 yards.

    Rifleman's Boot Camp: An intensive, week-long program that combines the Weekend Marksmanship Clinic and the Known-Distance Workshop, along with special topics like shooting at unknown distances. The RBC puts you on the fast track to becoming a rifleman – or an instructor. You'll shoot at 25 yards, as well as at 100, 200, 300 and 400 yards, and longer if the range is available. You'll be taught all the intricacies of shooting at both known distance and unknown distances. You'll also get the personalized attention you need to hone your skills and become a Rifleman.

    But don’t come alone: bring a friend, a neighbor or a spouse. We need everyone to spread the message if we are to once again become "A Nation of Riflemen."

    IMPORTANT NOTICE TO PROJECT APPLESEED SHOOTERS AND INSTRUCTORS.

    Until further notice there will be a suspension in the use of Smith and Wesson model 15/22 rifles at ALL Project Appleseed events.

    Date: September 14, 2016
    To: All Appleseed Instructors
    Subject: TEMPORARY BAN ON SMITH & WESSON M&P 15/22 USE AT APPLESEED
    EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, THE USE OF SMITH AND WESSON M&P 15/22’S AT AN APPLESEED IS HEREBY BANNED UNTIL SMITH & WESSON FORMALLY INVESTIGATES THE PROBLEM AND ISSUES AN OFFICIAL CORRECTIVE ACTION. THE AOC WILL NOTIFY THE CADRE WHEN THIS BAN IS LIFTED.
    The AOC has received a rash of reports regarding safety issues with the Smith & Wesson M&P 15/22, including a shooter getting injured as a result of an out-of-battery discharge.
    As responsible Instructors, we have a duty to maintain safety at our events. If we know a rifle to be potentially unsafe, we shouldn’'t allow it on the line at all.
    At this time the least risk course of action would be to exclude the Smith & Wesson M&P 15/22 from future events until Smith & Wesson formally investigates the problem and issues an official corrective action.

        Smith and Wesson has been very responsive to our concerns. We are currently working with S&W to evaluate each of the firearms involved and to determine the appropriate next steps. We appreciate their prompt attention to this matter and will keep you updated with additional information as it becomes available.

        As part of their fact-finding process, S&W is eager to contact the owner of each affected rifle, and ascertain the rifle's serial number and issues. To report a problem with your 15‑22, or if you simply have a question about any S&W firearm, you should call the company’s customer service department at 1‑800‑331‑0852.

        Until S&W completes their investigation and advises us of the appropriate next steps, the temporary ban on M&P 15/22s shall remain in effect.

          The Appleseed for St Augustine on Dec 10-11 has been canceled by the Ancient City Shooting Range to put another HI-Speed LOW-Drag course in to our slot, which we reserved months ago on the calendar.

              I've heard gripes more than once from the go-fast instructors, about the time they lose in class because of a lack of basic skill and safety with a firearm.

              All they woud have to do require a Appleseed. Appleseed isn't in competion with them, Appleseed is the gateway too them.

              I belive it's a win-win for all of us and we should support each other to get as many people as possable out on the firing line.
