Welcome to El Paso’s very first LADYSEED! Ladies only, please! Gentlemen need not apply :)
For many women, a rifle range is an unfamiliar and potentially intimidating territory, which is why we created Ladyseeds. A Ladyseed is an Appleseed designed specifically for women. It offers the opportunity for women to shoot, share and get to know each other in a comfortable learning environment, with a passionate, dedicated group of lady instructors. Of course, the women who attend a Ladyseed event will learn much more than how to fire a rifle, they’ll also learn American heritage and how women actively aided in the fight for America’s freedom. When you attend a Ladyseed, it’s our hope that you’ll leave with new friends, a renewed sense of country, and an enhanced sense of civic responsibility.
The two-day event will include instruction on firearm safety, proper marksmanship techniques, and live fire practice. Students will also have the opportunity to earn the coveted Rifleman patch by shooting a qualifying score on the Appleseed Qualification Test (AQT).
In addition to expert marksmanship instruction, students will hear historical storytellers passionately share the Three Strikes of the Match, a series of three pivotal events that ignited the Revolutionary War on April 19, 1775.
Project Appleseed events are suitable for both new and experienced shooters. Families are welcome.
Absolutely NO current politics are discussed by Project Appleseed staff and volunteers. For more information and answers to Frequently Asked Questions, please visit our official website at www.appleseedusa.org
