The all-volunteer instructors of Project Appleseed will present a marksmanship clinic scheduled for the Blue & Gray Range for the weekend of August 29/30, 2020. Project Appleseed is part of a nationwide, non-profit, educational organization that teaches rifle marksmanship skills and the history of our Nation’s founding. This will be an intensive two-day program shot from three positions (prone, seated/kneeling, standing) at 25 meters, but with targets scaled to simulate shooting at 100, 200, 300 and 400 yards. Instruction will include the six steps to firing a shot, natural point of aim, steady hold factors, zeroing a rifle efficiently, and much more. New shooters are welcome and will learn to use a rifle safely and to hit a target reliably. Seasoned shooters will hone the skills needed to shoot more accurately – even out to 500 yards. Cost for the weekend is $65 for adults and $25 for youth, military, and law enforcement.
