Marksmanship clinics offered at Fernan Gun Club

SHOOTING- Another in a series of rifle marksmanship clinics is being offered at the Fernan Gun Club this weekend, Sept. 8-9.

The clinics are sponsored by the Revolutionary War Veteran's Association's Project Appleseed, which involves shooting instruction along with history about the impact of marksmanship in the American Revolution.

The clinics teach three rifleman shooting positions, use of the sling, six steps to firing, natural point of aim, how to zero your rifle using inches/minutes/clicks, and more.

The project also is designed to promote civic involvement.

Preregister: (208) 819-0866 or email ID@appleseedinfo.org.

Organizers say participants also will hear stories of the American Revolution surrounding the events of April 19, 1775, when marksmanship met history and American Heritage was born.
