My son Grant and I just returned from an incredible weekend of rifle training. This was the first time either of us had have any formal training on properly shooting a rifle. We took a Project Appleseed course from the Revolutionary War Veterans Association (RWVA). This was an amazing clinic and we both saw huge improvements in our abilities. Just like with pistols, there were a lot of technical details that I didn't know about shooting a rifle. We brought home a few targets for practice and both look forward to going back and earning our "Rifleman" patch.
Not only did we learn to shoot, the course also taught the real history of the two days that started the Revolutionary War and how colonial American marksmanship had an impact. This was a good reminder of what our founding fathers had in mind for America and that we all need to stay involved in politics to ensure we don't lose the freedoms that they fought for.
I highly recommend this course. For more information or to get signed-up for your Rifleman training, visit the Project Appleseed site.
