The shooting instruction was good and I learned more than I expected, especially regarding trigger squeeze. I took a relatively new rifle and my iron sights got loose so I would suggest taking a rifle that you have used a lot or taking your rifle out and shooting a few hundred rounds to ensure your equipment can handle the volume of shooting. The shooting community instructors, as a whole, are kind of goofy; this was no different. I really enjoyed the history lesson and the history behind the course of fire. I would go to another event.

This is an excellent way to learn to shoot accurately and to meet others. It's a good group of people who integrate a sense of history with skills and just plain fun. Highly recommended, whether for a newbie like me or for those who want to go to the next level. Go for it!

The event was both more interesting and more informative than expected despite the positive recommendations to participate in an Appleseed event. The instructors and staff were kind, knowledgeable, and helpful. Excellent all around.

The mission of this program is great, the execution was lacking. Instructions to the range were poor, class started an hour late and ended two hours late, there was very little of any structure. For a program (and instructors) that were not at all new to this, it was really disorganized. Level of instruction is basic, I learned some new things/concepts but didn't significantly improve my marksmanship.

About Project Appleseed

The History

A program by the nonprofit Revolutionary War Veterans Association, Project Appleseed takes its name from American folk hero Johnny Appleseed, who traveled the country planting seeds to benefit future generations. In a similar vein, Project Appleseed's instructors travel to ranges, clubs, and farms across the country, where they teach students American traditional rifle marksmanship and instill knowledge of their shared heritage and history.

The Necessities

Participants can bring along any safely operating firearm which can be fired from the shoulder. Rifle tools, shooting mats, and ammunition are also necessities, and to improve accuracy, a GI sling is recommended. Both scopes and sights are allowed, but a scope is recommended for those with poor eyesight. If you don't own an appropriate firearm, loaner rifles may be available through the camp as long as arrangements are made beforehand. Click here for tips.

The Instruction

Project Appleseed's volunteer instructors discuss the events of Lexington and Concord as well as the actions of those involved. Then they show students traditional American three-position marksmanship to help them maintain accuracy up to 500 yards away—known traditionally as the "rifleman's quarter mile"—using iron sights, standard rifles, and surplus ammunition.
