Alex Arms & Instruction is bringing Project Appleseed to Alex, OK the weekend of April 18 and 19. Project Appleseed is an activity of The Revolutionary War Veterans Association, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, dedicated to teaching every American our shared heritage and history as well as traditional rifle marksmanship skills. Their volunteer instructors travel across the country teaching those who attend about the difficult choices, the heroic actions, and the sacrifices that the Founders made on behalf of modern Americans, all of whom are their posterity. Registration for this event will be available soon at the Project Appleseed Website.
Alex Arms & Instruction is pleased to announce we are bringing the NSSF Rimfire Challenge to Alex, OK. The NSSF Rimfire Challenge is a .22 rifle and pistol program created to introduce new people to the shooting sports and provide a pathway to shooting competition. The NSSF Rimfire Challenge can provide individuals or families with a fun and exciting first-time shooting experience. Participation is open to all safe and responsible people who can legally own, possess or handle firearms.
Rimfire Challenge Shooting Competitions are designed to provide fun and safe entertainment for the entire family. This is a timed competition and courses-of-fire will consist of multiple steel targets.
The first Rimfire Challenge is tentatively scheduled for February 21, 2015 at 10:00 AM.

Event registration will be announced here as soon as it is available.
Our next Oklahoma SDA (Handgun permit) class will be Sunday November 16 at 8:00 AM at our store in Alex. You can reserve a seat here.
Whether you are a skilled shooter who has a lot of training and experience under his belt, a novice, or anyone in between, you will get a lot out of an Appleseed weekend. You can participate with any safe rifle — but an adjustable sling is highly recommended, as we focus a lot on the use of a sling as a marksmanship aid. Rimfire rifles are fine as well — many shooters use .22s to save on ammo costs. The course of fire is optimized for rifles that load quickly… such as from a clip or detachable magazine… but we have a procedure that allows tube feed rifles to keep up as well.
At every Appleseed, we also tell the amazing true story of April 19, 1775 — the day the colonists of Massachusetts Bay committed felonious treason against their country and took up arms against the most well-disciplined military in the world, and put the colonies on the path to become independent nations free from foreign rule. If you haven’t been to an Appleseed before, odds are you haven’t heard this story in the detail we tell it in — which is a shame, because it is a story every American should know.
