In Chamberlain, SD, I had the pleasure of meeting Whisker, a guy that’s highly involved in the Appleseed Project.
He took us out into a field and taught Tav and I a bit how to shoot.
Appleseed Project is an interesting organization. They base their ideals off of the Revolutionary Generation of the 1770’s, seeing shooting as a connection to history and a means to teach basic markesmanship.
Whisker made a big point distancing themselves from the crazy militias that you see in the news. In no way does Appleseed espouse separatism or government coups.
All-in-all, it was a good time learning how to shoot a rifle. I’d recommend it to anyone that’s interested.
