Maryland Project Appleseed 2019

Welcome to Maryland Project Appleseed 2019!

Our Rifle Marksmanship clinics are fun, and your shooting will improve whatever your starting skill level!
  • New to shooting? We will get you on paper, you will see rapid improvement, and you will have fun.
  • Prior Appleseed shooter, but still haven't made Rifleman? Continue to climb the ladder and get that patch!
  • Prior qualifying Rifleman? Bring a new rifle or scope to try out, get your Front Sight or distinguished patch (or maybe take a hat and join the instructor and volunteer ranks).
Also, you might learn some things...do you know:
  1. When and where did the Revolutionary War begin?
  2. When and where was the American Revolution won?
  3. What caused the Regulars (British Redcoats, the finest army in the world) to break and run in less than two minutes of fighting at the North Bridge?
  4. Who fired the first shots on Lexington Green?
Learn the answers to these questions, and a WHOLE LOT MORE at an Appleseed Rifle Marksmanship event!

Unfortunately, 15-22s are still prohibited. However, we do have loaner rifles available (typically Marlin 795s, 10/22s, or T/CR22s) and there are a number of folks who run alternative AR-based rimfire platforms at our events (CMMG dedicated uppers and conversions, Beretta ARX160, etc.).

I am excited to see how some of the emerging AR-type rimfire platforms perform at shoots in 2019, such as the Kriss DMK22 and Tippman M4-22. Seems like the rimfire platforms are proliferating to give people more choices beyond the 15-22.

And of course there are the events which allow centerfire (Marriottsville and Lexington Park, Bowie in the future and maybe a long range event on the Eastern Shore) which are very fun with ARs, ACRs, SCARs, Garands, AKs, and so on.

KYFHO, thanks for the quick reply. Even though it's not the answer I wanted to hear. I bought a 15-22 just for Appleseeds and earned my Rifleman first time out, now I can't use it for it's intended purpose. I will be on the line this year with my son, who I got a Marlin for him to use. I guess I'll have to get a .22 upper for my AR.

Sorry, I know it has frustrated a lot of people with 15-22s (including me). But there is joy in a new dedicated 22LR AR upper as well (I need to build one myself). And we would love to have you and your son on the line.

We are two weeks out from our first event of 2019 at AAFG in Annapolis, MD on January 26, 2019. There are still spots available and we have an all-star cast of experienced instructors for the event.

Absolutely! We adapt to the skills, strength, and confidence of kids of all ages. We have one very young woman who shoots a single shot bolt action with iron sights off a bipod and does pretty well (and gets all her shots off despite the time limits). We had another young woman shoot a 10/22 of bipod and score a large number of perfect targets over a 2-day shoot. Flip through some of the wrap-up pictures from last year and you’ll see lots of examples of kids on the line.

If a kid can handle the transitions, we encourage them try. If they can do the positions without transitions, that is fine too. If they need to stay prone, shoot from a sandbag, or from a bipod to be safe, that is fine as well. Safety is our first priority, then learning, then fun, then achievement, like Rifleman. Our youngest Rifleman (Riflewoman) last year was 10 years old, but she was exceptional (and is now competing in NRA High Power!).

AAFG in Annapolis is a great location for kids because it is rimfire only so they won’t have a centerfire nearby causing them to flinch (plus it is a great range anyway).

In general for adults, bolt actions are slower but some of our best shooters (including some of the people who have scored perfect 250s) have qualified with them. Heck, I just bought a new CZ 455 Scout and am going to put Tech Sights on it and see if it will score (I’ve already done so with a scoped Savage MkII).
