    Beginner level. 100 to 500 yards maybe? Someone so new to rifle shooting probably has no business going down to Badlands to shoot 1000 yds I think for their first class but what do i know. Anything recommended to get knowledge and feet wet to learn how and enjoy some distance shooting as a hobby? We love doing the clay with shotguns casual and pitting holes in paper tigers at indoor range with pistols. Found a hobby two older people can enjoy together. So not like we know nothing but pretty close to nothing and can admit it.

    I took the class with Justin at Fouled Bore. $300 and worth every penny. I had never shot past 200 yards prior, he had me hitting at 1350 consistently by early afternoon. He has other options for training, that was for a full day with lots of classroom before range time.

    I will read up on what the Appleseed is about. My creedmoor is a bit on the heavy to be shooting standing up off the shoulder for very much. I didn't get it to stalk Bambi or Wilbur. On my little sandbag it's comfortable at bench of course. Haven't looked at bipods. Basic longer x-bolt, nothing fancy there. Never heard of that Appleseed. Fouled Bore reminds me a bit of the Badlands Tactical I read about. I definitely would value the class time and fundamentals.
    Appreciate the information.

    Appleseed teaches basic marksmanship (if they have a range long enough, I've seen them teaching out to 1,000 yards) and American history and heritage (the story of Lexington and Concord). Good outfit.

    Appleseed teaches rifle marksmanship fundamentals, the basics from which everything flows. Positions, natural point of aim, the shot process etc...

    You’ll want to crawl before you walk and leave the creedmor at home. A semi auto .22 or .223 will do nicely.
