Are you a Rifleman, or a cook?

The Appleseed Project

Do you believe that the 2nd Amendment addresses the individual rights of citizens to keep and bear arms? Do you shoot, or want to learn? Can you consistently hit a man sized target at 500 yards?

What’s a rifleman?
In short, a rifleman is an armed American, trained in the tradition of American Liberty. It’s a man who has learned to shoot a rifle accurately — accurate enough to score “expert” on the Army Qualification Course. Until you can do that, you’re considered a “Cook,” unprepared and unqualified to carry a rifle on the firing line of freedom. But after attending an Appleseed AQT shoot, you’ll have the credentials necessary to be a true rifleman, and will understand the critical need for defending freedom in this country.

If you haven’t been to an Appleseed event, go. You don’t need to own a firearm. Chances are they’ll provide one if you let them know. Buy some ammo (even .22lr is fine, if you want to shoot inexpensively), show up, learn some history, and improve your marksmanship more than you could have dreamed.
