Tennessee: Rifle Marksmanship Clinic offered Oct. 31 – Nov. 1
The Project Appleseed rifle marksmanship clinic will be held on Oct. 31-Nov 1 at Arnold Air Force Base, at Rifle Range Rd.
Registration begins at 8 a.m. The clinic starts at 8:30 a.m. and will continue until 5 p.m.
Participants are taught fundamental rifle marksmanship skills that are to allow a rifleman to be accurate out to 400 yards, with iron sights or a scope, a standard rifle and surplus ammo. Most of the instruction at a Project Appleseed event is conducted on the firing range at 25 yards, at reduced size targets to simulate 100 to 400 yards.
Students will learn rifle shooting from the standing, sitting, kneeling, and prone positions, sight alignment, and breath control, along with safe gun handling, proper use of a sling, and Revolutionary War history.
Participants bring your ear and eye protection, a rifle with sling, ammunition, a rifle mat, bug repellent, hat, sunscreen, a packed lunch, snacks, drinks and plenty of water to stay hydrated. Both centerfire and rimfire rifles are allowed. About 500 rounds of ammunition are needed.
Project Appleseed promotes ideals such as integrity, commitment and personal responsibility that founding fathers relied on to win our independence and to then make America a great nation.
Project Appleseed™ is a fast-growing, 501(c) (3) non-profit educational community of dedicated volunteers that promote civic responsibility through the teaching of colonial history and the American traditions of rifle marksmanship.
The cost for this two day clinic is $75 for adults and $30 for youth under 18. There are also discounts for law enforcement, active and retired military and guard and more.
