Bone Creek Gun Club is hosting a two day rifle class October 11th & 12th. Instructors will teach participants the basics of shooting from unsupported positions (standing, kneeling, sitting & prone) and proper use of a sling to stabilize the rifle.
The firing line at our last one.
The class is run Saturday & Sunday from 9 AM – 5 PM.
Two days of training cost $60 for adults & $20 for anyone under 18.
One day prices are $40 for adults or $15 if under 18. LEO’s, all military and elected officials shoot free!
Expected round count is 100 – 200 rounds each day. Ultimate round count depends on how fast the class moves so bring lots!
Think you're too good to waste the money or time? If you qualify as a Rifleman (Expert) with a score of 210 or greater on the first AQT on Saturday Appleseed will refund your entry fee. We might also ask you to volunteer as a future instructor!

How to prep for an Appleseed
Here’s the group checking out their targets at a previous AS we hosted.
All shooting will be done on miniature targets at 25 yards that represent shots of 100 – 400 yards. Any kind of gun is welcome but semi-autos with peep sights or scopes and removable magazines work best. The short distance makes rimfires like Ruger’s 10/22 an excellent budget training rifle. .22LR rifles work great but centerfire rifles are welcome if you can afford to feed them! Many shooters will also use AR-15’s with .22 conversion kits.
200 meters prone after spending a day at 25 meters.
Comfort gear – Foam camping pad, water, snacks, lunch, chair, sunscreen.
We’ll spend time shooting from standing, kneeling, sitting and prone so wear clothes you’re comfortable moving around in. Your foam pad will be on a concrete floor and you’ll be standing, sitting or kneeling on it much of the day so DO NOT bring an inflatable pad (it will break).
The kids & ladies of Appleseed!
Facility – BCGC has a concrete pad and roof on the firing line that will accommodate 30 shooters. We have porta potties and that’s it. If you want water, food, chairs or anything else bring it with you. Check the weather forecast and pack accordingly.
Here’s a list of hotels in the Pittsburg area if you need to stay overnight.
Hope you can make it!
Note - I know there's always controversy about the Appleseed organization. This is not the thread to discuss that. We host (at no charge) Appleseed and similar training because Bone Creek Gun Club believes in encouraging competent gun ownership for people of all ages, sexes, politics and beliefs. That is all.
One week from Appleseed bump! Weather forecast is in the 60's.
