Project Appleseed will hold THREE rifle marksmanship events in El Paso in 2017! They will take place on May 20-21, August 5-6, and October 21-22 at the EPCC Law Enforcement Training Academy range. This unique event teaches fundamental rifle marksmanship skills together with stories about the important role that marksmanship played during the Revolutionary War.
The two-day event will include instruction on gun 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.
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
