We are going to cancel the Annapolis Appleseed event this weekend. Apologies for the late notice but it seems like we'll just have to save our Valentine's specials for next year.

Things are looking good for Marriottsville on March 9-10 - we already have 8 other students signed up but there are still plenty of spots available. This will be a centerfire and rimfire event so a perfect opportunity to kick the tires on your AR, Garand, or favorite 22.

I know this may not seem to belong in this section, but Project Appleseed isn't just about marksmanship, it is about getting people involved in the political process to make positive changes in the direction of the country.

While we won't and don't tell you what to advocate for or against, or who to vote for, we'd be remiss if we didn't urge you to make your opinions known on Maryland's upcoming gun control measures.

Please take the time to go to Annapolis this month (2/21,2/25 & 2/27) AND call, AND email your and other key legislators.This link below provides summaries and key committee members and the contact info for who need to hear from you.
Get your friends and family to do the same. It's that critical.

Marriottsville, MD AGC March 09-10, 2019

We are two weeks away from our next Appleseed event, a 2-day rimfire and centerfire at AGC in Marriottsville. . Doubt it will be a Winterseed, with temperatures forecasted to be about 50F, but you never know with Maryland weather.

If you have only been to a 1-day event, you will find that the 2-day has a lot more drills and instruction in addition to more AQTs and more history. So if you have found yourself struggling to get into the groove on a 1-day, this is a great opportunity to expand your skills. With more AQTs, we also find that folks on the verge of Rifleman typically breakthrough.

And if you have only ever done Appleseed with a rimfire, you will find centerfire to be a fun challenge in recoil management, weight management in various positions, etc. all while leveraging the same core lessons of any Appleseed - steady hold factors, the 6 steps of firing a shot, and natural point of aim.

I know there is a lot to worry about in Annapolis right now and that folks are rightly focused on defending our rights to hold shooting events like this one in Maryland. But exercising those rights in a positive way also sends a powerful message - we will not be bullied into foregoing our rights and our heritage of marksmanship that won our freedoms to begin with.

The more folks we can bring to this realization - meaning friends, coworkers, family, or hell, your political enemies - through participation in shooting sports like an Appleseed clinic, the more allies we will have in this fight. Let someone see first hand how semi-automatic doesn't mean fully-automatic (or worse yet, fully semi-automatic!) but how much harder it is to work a bolt, how a "shoulder thing that goes up" is a perfectly logical thing to have for shooters of different sizes, how a "barrel shroud" is a lot better than holding a hot barrel, how an AR15 is not some spray-and-pray killer, and how a flash hider can protect the accuracy of a firearm. All in a safe and supportive environment that avoids the confrontational nature of present day politics. The only red hats at our events are fully qualified instructors.

Most of all let's remind these folks of our heritage and debt of honor owed to our forefathers - to let the ballot box, soap box, and jury box be effective guardians of our freedom so that we never have to turn to the cartridge box again.

Ok, I will get off my own soapbox now. Hope to see you on the line.

One week away from our next Appleseed 2-day rifle marksmanship clinic at AGC in Marriottsville. We still have spots open if you would like to attend. If you are worried about equipment, we have plenty of loaners available - just ask.

It is forecasted to be a little chilly on Saturday and cold and rainy on Sunday. Probably like April in New England - so you can have an authentic Appleseed experience! Let me know if you have any questions and hope to see you there.

It is a great covered range so

Completely fine - we typically have a few folks (including instructors) that canít make both days.

The one-day Annapolis on March 23 is filling up - only 3 spots left. Then you are all the way to Patriots Day Weekend in April 13-14 before the next event. So if you are interested, sign up early and often

Marriottsville, MD AGC March 09-10, 2019 - What a class!

What a weekend and class.

We had 9 shooters on the line - ARs, custom 10/22s, and a trusty Marlin 795. The weather never warmed up as promised (well, it hit 65F on the way home but was cold, wet and miserable the rest of the time) but the shooters sure did heat up!

Saturday we had a couple rifleman scores and even a cleared Red Coat. But Sunday started and stayed HOT. Just how distinguished was this class?
  • Eva K shot a 234, 235, 236, and a 246 WITH IRONS!
  • Ben K shot a 235 with irons!
  • Jacob M shot a 241, 243, and 246 with Optics!
  • And because you can't be distinguished when everyone else is shooting Distinguised, Chris M shot a PERFECT 250 target!

In all, 5 out of 9 shooters achieved Rifleman, 2 new and 3 requals (great job Shannon and congrats on all the cleared Red Coats.

The full set of pictures are available on the MD Appleseed Facebook page for the event.

Huzzah and congrats to all the shooters and future Rifleman. Every one of the instructors and students was where you are today. Dry fire, dry fire, dry fire and you will be there too.

Our next class is two weeks away, a one-day rimfire clinic at AAFG in Annapolis on March 23. Only two spots are available so sign-up quickly if you are interested.

After that, we are to Patriots Day weekend April 13-14 at TWO different ranges: Annapolis and Lexington Park.

Oh, and if you ever wanted to see a perfect 250 target:

Annapolis, March 23

We still have 2 spots left at our one-day rimfire clinic at AAFG in Annapolis on March 23. It looks like the weather will be absolutely perfect - 57F and sunny, no rain most of the week before! Sorry if you were hoping for a Winterseed patch, but honestly, you don't get better shooting weather than that in MD!

After that, we have plenty of spots open for Patriots Day weekend April 13-14 at TWO different ranges: a rimfire-only event at AAFG in Annapolis and and a rimfire and centerfire event at Sanner's Lake Sportmans Club (SLSC) in Lexington Park.

Those of you who have been to an Appleseed know the significance of April 19, 1775. While each clinic honors the memory of the patriots who fought that day for future Americans - and in doing so risked or sacrificed their own freedom, lives, families, and futures - we take it up a notch for Patriots Day weekends.

These events will come packed with special shirts and patches, special targets, special courses of fire celebrating the heroes of April 19, and lots more. And with two awesome ranges to choose from, you can't go wrong.

As I have said a few times, Appleseed is not just about rimfire rifles - some of our best scores were put up with ARs at the Marriottsville event. And, as always, if you need loaner equipment, including rimfire rifles, just ask. And, as you can tell from the pictures below, we are very family friendly and a great way to introduce young folks to shooting in a safe and disciplined manner.

Some pics from past years' Patriot's Day at Annapolis and Sanners:





Hope to see you on the line!
