State Laws to be aware of:  Check State Laws

Misc:  This range is on a rural farm in Calhoun County, in central WV. The class sizes are relatively small, allowing students to receive more individualized instruction. Previous attendees have commented about the "relaxed, down-home atmosphere" that made for a memorable Appleseed.

Bring out your 22s and gain valuable marksmanship skills without using up your expensive center fire ammo. There will be a 100 meter range available, so be sure to bring your centerfire rifle and see that the 25 meter skills transfer to actual distance too.

The farm and range are privately owned by two members of the RWVA.
They want you to have a wonderful time, while respecting their property. If you have any special needs, please let them know, they'll do their best to accommodate you.

Enjoy your Appleseed experience surrounded by the sights and sounds of beautiful Appalachia! Stinson is located in the heart of "Wild, Wonderful, West Virginia"; close to 4-season activities and historical sites. Bring the family and make a vacation of it!

Sorry NO PETS allowed at this location
