Classic American Gunsmith LLC and Patrick Heraghty have no affiliation with the Appleseed Program or the Revolutionary War Veterans Association. However, Patrick Heraghty, our gunsmith, has attended an Appleseed Program in the past and fully supports the program as something that every American citizen (especially our children) should do.
Project Appleseed is a non-political rifle marksmanship training program that has an excellent history lesson included with it.
The marksmanship portion of the program focuses on traditional rifle techniques from standing, sitting/kneeling, and prone positions. The history lesson covers the difficult choices, heroic actions, and sacrifices that our founding fathers made on behalf of our freedom during the Revolutionary War battles of Lexington and Concord (April 19th, 1775).
The Rivanna Rifle & Pistol Club (RRPC) (Charlottesville, VA) is hosting a ‘Ladyseed Program’ on 3-4 October 2015.
What is a ‘Ladyseed’ you ask? It is a women only Appleseed Program. During a ‘Ladyseed’ event, the attendees and the instructors are all women. This set-up offers the offers a supportive environment that is relaxed and comfortable. Note: A few men will be setting up the line and cooking lunch.
Ladies, if you have not learned proper rifle marksmanship you should. It is a great confidence builder and valuable skill set that you can rely on throughout your life.
Guys, a ticket to this Ladyseed program would make an excellent present for all the ladies in your life. It also shows the mothers, sisters, daughters, granddaughters, wives, girlfriends, etc. that you support them in becoming the most independent and confident woman that they can be.
