** Very important things
1. Legal fully automatic rifles are welcome at our events so long as they are only used in semi-automatic mode.
2. Legal suppressors (also known as silencers) are welcome on our lines.
3. Legal short barrelled rifles (SBRs) may be permitted on our lines at the discretion of the event Shoot Boss.
4. Pistol Caliber Carbines chambered in 9mm and 45ACP are permitted at our 25m events. No adjustments for the “.30 caliber rule” are needed as the rounds are already so large.
5. Pistol Caliber Carbines are not authorized at any Known Distance Event.
6. AR15-type pistols (with or without stabilizing brace) are NOT permitted on our rifle lines.
Shooters are expected to comply with all applicable Federal, State, and local laws. We ensure our events are conducted in accordance with host range policies.
Special Equipment Considerations:
1. Due to a firearms safety bulletin, .17HMR semi-automatic rifles are not recommended.
2. We are pleased to announce that Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22 firearms may be used at Project Appleseed clinics beginning August 1st, 2021. However, owners must comply with the Smith & Wesson Safety Alert. We will make every effort to have a S&W Bolt Inspection Gauge on-hand for owners to check their bolts for compliance. You are encouraged to check the following links to the Smith & Wesson websites for information about the issues and how to check the M&P 15-22 bolt to determine that it is within specification:
See this video on how to check your S&W rifle.
3. An additional Liability Waiver will also need to be signed by any student at a Project Appleseed clinic who chooses to use a semi-automatic .17HMR rifle or a Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22 firearm.
