Whether you are a new shooter, a seasoned hunter, or tactically trained, Project Appleseed will teach you something and improve your rifle skills. However, Appleseed’s rifle marksmanship instruction is only a piece of the lessons learned. Attendees also learn about early American History, what a true rifleman (or woman) is, and meet some amazing quality people along the way.
Many in the prepper community make the mistake of first seeking tactical rifle instruction. And we are of the strong opinion this is the wrong place to start. You should instead first lay a solid foundation. Which, this is what traditional marksmanship is all about. And you’ll be surprised by just how much the Appleseed instruction will challenge you.
In this episode, we go deep into the ITRH vault to hear a classic not available in the public feed, Episode 38. You’ll hear from the late great Scout, head of the Texas chapter of Project Appleseed at the time of recording. And I’m joined by co-host Jonathan who helped found ITRH. We all discuss what I still consider the best traditional rifle marksmanship program.
While this is an ITRH classic reloaded for your listening pleasure, the information shared is largely still the same. Their mission is still the same. And the program is still something we support wholeheartedly. Appleseed attendees come from all walks of life and political backgrounds. It’s a place for learning and community building.
Once you’re done listening to this episode, be sure to listen to episode 134. It’s a farewell episode to Scout. You see, he passed away rather tragically in 2016. His departure from this Earth left a whole. And in that episode, Aaron shares the tail of his first experience with Appleseed.
