    Has anyone done a Project Appleseed event?

    Just curious what they are like and what they are all about. Did a little bit of reading and it looks like whatever they are you burn through some ammo. They suggest something like 500 rounds for a two day event!

    Anyway...there is one like 75 miles from my house this summer and im curious if its something worth doing.

    I attended a 2 day Appleseed event about 7 years ago. It was well worth the time and effort. A Ruger 10/22 with 4 or 5 mags works best. One guy has an AR. I had a Mossberg 44 bolt rifle. The first day is a lot of instruction. The 2nd day is more shooting. Read and follow all the "How to prepare" info on their website. I plan on going to another Appleseed event again.

      I heard there is a lot of patriotic and historic talk about the intentions of the founding fathers as well. I have been wanting to go.

        Not being snarky but is it 2 days of patriotic talk and shooting a .22?

          Maybe, but I plan on taking my AR so technically it would be 2 days of patriot talk and .223 for me lol. But from what I understand scoring expert on the AQT is the goal then get a rifleman patch. There's supposed to be good coaching during the shooting portions regarding different shooting positions which is cool.

              Whether the first I attended or the many I volunteered at, every Appleseed event I attended including Instructor Boot Camp was a great success. It's a hard combo to beat with rousing recitation of the events of April 19, 1775 along with excellent instruction on sling supported field positions for a bargain price!

              My favorite patriot has always been Samuel Whittemore, that was one tough old guy. Unfortunately I'm no longer near any Appleseeds now that I've retired.
