The San Antonio chapter recently hosted a Project Appleseed event. Several ladies participated and Alejandra Montez earned her Rifleman patch.
Appleseed instructs traditional rifle marksmanship skills that have been passed down from generation to generation, along with reconnecting today’s Americans with the people and events of the Founding era.
Participants are taught fundamental rifle marksmanship skills that are to allow a Rifleman to be accurate out to 500 yards, with iron sights, standard rifle and surplus ammo. This is the traditional ‘Rifleman’s Quarter mile’, which is an uniquely American Rifleman skill, that has been part of this nation from the very first days.
Because good shooting requires learning positive traits, such as patience, determination, focus, attention to detail, and persistence, which are key elements of mature participation in civic activities, so we urge our students to take what they have learned about themselves as marksmen and apply it to their participation in their communities. Rachel Malone from Appleseed is working with many of AG & AG chapters to set up free clinics to anyone who wants one.
