Hey does anyone know the name of the festival that teaches children to shoot. I think its Apple somethin?? Thanks in advance
think i'm gonna attend my first appleseed in a couple of months. really looking forward to it. how hard is it to make rifleman?I've been teaching with Appleseed for three years now. It's not just for kids, bring the whole family. They will get some of the best instruction on the safe and proper use of the rifle.
We allow any legal rifle, rim fire or center fire, open sights or scope, semi-auto or bolt gun, it does not matter. We say that you "run what you brung."
Most instructors are like me, we all bring extra rifles to loan out to those who may not have a rifle but want to learn. I carry a Cricket, a youth sized 10-22, a Compact 10-22, a Regular Carbine 10-22 all set up with peep-sights and slings.
If you can shoot 4 MOA you can make Rifleman.think i'm gonna attend my first appleseed in a couple of months. really looking forward to it. how hard is it to make rifleman?
well, i can shoot near MOA....on a bench . without a bench is where i need the most work. i think what i need from appleseed, is more instruction on practical shooting. and from what i hear, it is great training for that.If you can shoot 4 MOA you can make Rifleman.
The most important thing is to bring a teachable attitude. We try to put a weeks worth of training into a two day even. Its referred to as "drinking from the end of a fire hose."
I have never been to an event that I did not meet some of the best people out there.
