The Lewiston Pistol Club will host an Appleseed Rifle Marksman Clinic at the Bernie Petersen Memorial Range on May 14-15, 2011. The entire range will be reserved from 8 – 5 on Saturday and Sunday.
The Appleseed Clinic focuses on the basics of good marksmanship – sight alignment, sight picture, breath control, trigger control and follow through. Interspersed with the shooting, the Clinic leaders deliver an oral history of April 19th, 1775 – the day the shot heard around the world was fired on the Lexington green.
The Appleseed Clinic is an excellent introduction to rifles for youth and beginners. But even old hands have trouble passing the graduation exam – the Army Qualification Test. The final target is the size of a postage stamp at 25 meters. Think that’s an easy shot? Come show us how it’s done!
