Appleseed Information Central!

Appleseed Information Central!

The folks at the Revolutionary War Veterans Association, want to provide you with some one-stop shopping for your Appleseed Shoot information.

"April 19th, 1775....Where Marksmanship met History....and a Heritage began....!"

Would you like to learn where the American Rifleman Heritage began, and how?

Isaac Davis and John Parker were there.....They want to pass on the Tradition of American Marksmanship to you!....Come out and learn why these men are important to your Rifleman Heritage and what they have to teach you.

Ever want to learn what it takes to be accurate with your rifle out to 500 yards?

The Appleseed Shoots answer all of these questions, and this area of The Firing Line will answer your questions about the Appleseed Shoots.

We will maintain a current Appleseed Tour Schedule here as well as field your questions about the Appleseed Shoots and Appleseed Project. You are invited to post your questions in this forum, and the representatives of the Appleseed Project will answer them or you are welcome to PM us with your questions.

This is a service of the folks that bring you the Appleseed Shoots, so please, do not direct your Appleseed questions/comments to the Administration of The Firing Line.

Our goal is to make it easy for you to get specific and general information about the Appleseed Shoots and to provide you with a current schedule of our nationwide Appleseed Tour.

We are adding Appleseed Shoot locations and dates all the time, so keep an eye on our Schedule, and we are always looking for new locations, so feel free to forward your clubs/range information to us.

There is a lot of information and answers on the Appleseed Web Site, come and visit, if you have further questions, feel free to ask here. http://www.rwva.org



Appleseed Shoots travel very well!

We have over 63 shoots on the schedule for 2008, nation wide so far, with over 100 being the goal for 2008.

We are always looking for new places to take the Appleseed Project to, if you want to save some gas money, then set one up at your home range or on your farm.

Appleseed Shoots are often done on private property, with a good natural backstop.

25 meters is all that is needed longer ranges are nice, but the bulk of the course is at 25 meters, with reduced size targets to simulate 100-500 yards.

PM me if you would like more details on hosting or if you have questions about the Appleseed Project.

BTW....Have I mentioned that Kids under 21 and all Military shoot FREE at Appleseed Shoots?

Information to help you prepare for an Appleseed Shoot

CONGRATULATIONS!

You have registered for an Appleseed Shoot, as presented by the Revolutionary War Veterans Association. This event is very informative and exciting, the amount of information and skills you will be instructed on will be extensive. The more prepared you are for this event, the more you will be able to get out of it and the more you will enjoy it. This page is intended to better prepare you for what you are going to experience and to better inform you about what to expect.

Gear:

Appleseed shoots are about instilling skills and knowledge to the shooter, not a focus on gear or equipment, however, our experience has shown that with some preparation, you can benefit from your first Appleseed like a pro. Regardless of what you bring, we will teach you skills to help you shoot much better and these skills will transfer to any rifle, so while some of the suggestions below may not be available to you, they are provided for your information and use as you see fit.

Sling: You will be taught to properly use a sling to support and stabilize your rifle, to enable you to make more accurate shots. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND an USGI web sling like this onehttp://www.ray-vin.com/tech/websling/webslinghelp.htm . Please note how it is rigged and also this is a 1 1/4 inch sling, so you will need 1 1/4 inch sling swivels.

Rifle: While you can learn shooting skills with any rifle, and we are happy to instruct you with which ever safe operating rifle you bring, you will find that some rifles will make your learning process easier and quicker, as well as allowing a fuller experience of all that an Appleseed has to offer. The Appleseed course is conducted at 25 meters (28 yards) and is designed to take advantage of semi-auto, magazine fed rifles. This being said, many people have shot at Appleseed Shoots with bolt action rifles and gained valuable skills and instruction.

You can plan on shooting @200-250 rounds per day at an Appleseed shoot, and with the cost of center fire ammo as it is, and the bulk of the course at 25 meters, many folks have experienced that using a 22 rim fire rifle is a great way to learn skills without a large investment in ammo. Whichever rifle you elect to bring (we recommend a backup rifle, to ensure you can complete the course if your primary rifle malfunctions) please ensure the following: 1) you understand how to safely operate your rifle. Be able to load it, unload it, lock the bolt in the open position (if capable) how to engage the safety. 2) Have the rifle zeroed so that point of bullet impact is the same as point of aim at 25 meters, this will be a good starting point for your sights, and we will be able to adjust them as needed as your skills and knowledge improve. You will be expected to understand how to adjust your sights and have any tools required to do so. Here is some information about rifle selection and Appleseed Shoots http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=1416.0

Liberty Training Rifle: The Ruger 10/22, with Tech-Sights http://www.tech-sights.com/ and some other minor modifications make great Appleseed trainer rifles, we call them LTRs. Following will be some links to discussion of various modifications, 'how-to" information and optional ideas. The basic Ruger LTR consists of the Tech-Sights and sling swivels. Many folks include extended magazine release and bolt auto close. For the cost of 400-500 rounds of center fire ammo, you can purchase a Ruger 10/22 and install the Tech-Sights and sling swivels, giving you a great rifle to continue improving your marksmanship skills and to loan to others to learn with as well.

LTR Links: http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=1314.0

http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=1315.0

Accessories: Here is a great list of items to bring with you to an Appleseed Shoot, keep in mind that this is two full days of shooting and learning, so preparing in advance will make your experience more productive and comfortable. http://www.appleseedinfo.org/pdf/wha...ring_shoot.pdf

Shooter Preparation:

There are some items and actions that you will find to prepare you as the shooter/student, that will greatly enhance your experience and learning at an Appleseed Shoot. We want you to take full advantage of your time on the firing line and the quality instruction that will be available to you. Below are some suggestions that you will help you be better prepared:

Fred's Guide to Becoming a Rifleman: This guide contains a great deal of information that will be covered at the Appleseed Shoot and will give you an opportunity to practice and learn prior to the Appleseed, and to review and continue to learn (and pass on these skills) after the Appleseed Shoot. You can get it here, with some AQT targets http://www.fredsm14stocks.com/catalog/acc.asp Be sure to tell them that Appleseed sent you.

While you are waiting for your guide, you can check out these links for helpful information:

http://www.appleseedinfo.org/as_prepare.htm "How to prepare"

http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=62.0 "The real poop on what to bring to an Appleseed"

http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=61.0 "11 Misconceptions about Appleseed"

http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=92.0 "The Rifleman Series, from Fred's"

Take in as much information as you can prior to showing up for your Appleseed Shoot. You will find the more time you put into getting prepared, you will gain that much or more out of the course.

One last item, you will be shooting from standing, sitting and prone positions. If you don't shoot from these positions often, you will find them uncomfortable at first and your body will protest some to the new positions. You will do yourself ( and your muscles) a huge favor by getting into the positions for several minutes each day, leading up to your Appleseed Shoot.


http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=101.0 Some good information and PDF links that contain useful information.

The COF is attached below. It is a rough guideline, and there have been some updates to the Appleseed COF, but this will give you a very good idea of the shooting you will be doing.

Enjoy your Appleseed and prepare to learn.

The better question to ask is how many shooters can we fit on your firing line, at 4 feet per shooter? If we can get over 20, something closer to 40, that would be ideal.

All we need is 25 meters/82 feet, but if we have a longer range, say out to 300 yards or more, that is a bonus.

We will promote the shoot and get the shooters to come out if you provide the property/location. We don't expect folks to drum up a certain number of shooters before we come out, we will help in that department.

Since this will be the first shoot in Kansas and the first in that location, we will do what it takes to make it happen.

PM me with an email address, and I will send you a "Host Packet" that will have more information, my contact information and we will work out the details. If we have 60 days notice, we can get the shoot in Shot Gun News and really stress that fact that this is the first Appleseed in Kansas. I have had a good reply from some folks on the East/Central part of the state, but nothing set up yet.

I look forward to working with you!

Oklahoma/North Texas Appleseed at World Class Facility!

Hey All,

The Appleseed Shoot in Grandfield, Oklahoma, April 12-13 is at the World Class, BadLands Tactical Training Facility Badlands Tactical Web Site

This is a great place to experience an Appleseed and to have the opportunity to apply what you learn at actual distance.

We have the entire facility, including the 400-1000 yard range, with steel targets, ain't nothing better than hearing steel ring from 500 yards away!!

While this event will use the standard Appleseed course, with the great facility, there is no doubt that this two day Appleseed will have more actual distance than most of the other Appleseeds.

There is free camping on site, and there is a dorm house available very inexpensively. There is room here for hundreds of shooters, sure would be fun to make this the biggest Appleseed yet We start to get big numbers, we can try to stick around for an extra day of shooting

Folks, this will be the cheapest way to get on to this great facility and a great opportunity to get some actual distance shooting experience.

Be sure to pre-register for this event, so we can ensure enough Instructors to fully take advantage of this facility! Appleseed Information and Registration

Looks like the Appleseed Tour is starting to ramp up, leading to the April 19th Patriot's Day Weekend, with 13 Appleseeds nation wide!

The next few months will see the crew at Appleseed being very busy with many shoots around the country, March-April-May are some busy months for Appleseed.

Take a look at the schedule, see where the Appleseed closest to you is and come on out.

Just 5 more days to the April 19th Commemoration of the "day the shot was heard around the world"!

Don't miss out on being on the firing line with over 500 others, on 14 different ranges nation wide.

Come on out, hear of the first American Riflemen and what they sacrified for your Liberties, and learn the marksmanship skills that they would have taught you, had you been on their firing lines.

I would love to participate in this, but Davila TX is awfully far away from the Metroplex. Is there any likelihood of a shoot being conducted closer to DFW?

We are working on some locations for the Dallas area, but no solid dates yet.

If you have some contacts at ranges you would like to have Appleseed come to, just let us know. We are always looking for new locations and having someone on the "inside" helping the process usually makes it happen.

So, help us out, we will bring it to your back yard.

I hear ya.

A buddy & I shot an Appleseed in NOV2007 at Davilla. We drove down Friday and stayed at a hotel in Temple.

WELL worth the effort and we are planning attending another at Davilla (barring a closer location) in 2009. I think our experiences have talked my buddy's BIL into coming, too.

Note that the Davilla, TX, Appleseed is a 25m affair. Probably cheaper to buy and equip a Ruger 10/22 "Liberty Training Rifle" than buy several hundred rounds of centerfire ammo.

Went to the Castle Rock, WA shoot couple weeks ago

My thanks to the shoot boss and all the instructors.

1) they were over the top OCD as far as safety goes, just the way I like it.

2) good instruction. Unfortunately, I'm not a good student or I have a limited number of good shots in a day. I had a higher score at the beginning than the end. Maybe. I could see how integrating the new stuff I learned could result in a lower score for a while, but ultimately my ceiling is going to be higher.

3) good people. There were a couple of teenagers on either side of me, one made rifleman. (His dad didn't, bragging rights for sure!) Both seemed like really great kids.

4) good history. There were some bad@ss old geezers on the road from Concord. "Unhappy it is though to reflect, that a Brother's Sword has been sheathed in a Brother's breast, and that, the once happy and peaceful plains of America are either to be drenched with Blood, or Inhabited by Slaves. Sad alternative! But can a virtuous Man hesitate in his choice?"

I'm going to practice what I've learned and return for some Sunday shoots. If I make rifleman, I'm going to treat myself to another rifle to try qualify again with. And so on...

Seriously, I recommend this program.
