March 20-21, at Turcotte range on Hwy 43 south of Canton.

Here is a link to the Canton info:
Canton Appleseed info

Two full days of rifle marksmanship training, simulating 100-400 yard shots on scaled down Army AQT targets. No bipods allowed, this is fundamental shooting using a sling. Shooting will be done from standing, sitting and prone positions.

Some info from their website:

The Appleseed Program is designed to take you from being a simple rifle owner to being a true rifleman. All throughout American history, the rifleman has been defined as a marksman capable of hitting a man-sized target from 500 yards away — no ifs, ands or buts about it. This 500-yard range is traditionally known as "the rifleman's quarter-mile;" a rifleman can hit just about any target he can see. This skill was particulary evident in the birth of our country, and was the difference in winning the Revolutionary War.

So why me? This country was founded and won by riflemen who fought and beat British forces. We invite all interested marksmen to learn the skills and techniques necessary to shoot proficiently; and then hope you'll participate in teaching and practicing with others so that together we can save this great land. Why you? Well, that's simple: if you're on this page we're betting you're a patriot, and we hope you answer the call.

What's a rifleman?

In short, a rifleman is an armed American, trained in the tradition of American Liberty. It's a man who has learned to shoot a rifle accurately — accurate enough to score "expert" on the Army Qualification Course. Until you can do that, you're considered a "Cook," unprepared and unqualified to carry a rifle on the firing line of freedom. But after attending an Appleseed AQT shoot, you'll have the credentials necessary to be a true rifleman, and will understand the critical need for defending freedom in this country.


So are you a Rifleman, or a Cook? Come to Canton and find out! Hope to see everyone there next weekend!

We had 18 shooters endure the snow, and rain for the 2 days.. We had 6 shooters make the Rifleman score of 210 x 250 to get their Rifleman's patch... equivilent to Expert ..Normally we have less than 10% make it, but this was 33% !! Including one 11 year old young man. That was worth my trip down. I hope some of you can make some of our other shoots, and see for yourself what type of program this is....Common People teaching Common People to shoot Uncommonly Well... D-451
