Thanks to the shooters for coming. It was my privilege to work with you.
I hardly saw any "happy finger" Sun. morning and none by the afternoon.
Make sure you all don't forget to find your NPOA and keep those elbows under the rifles. Dryfire, dryfire, dryfire.
Evenstar, AKA my sister, I have never seen any one ACE Stage 2
on the AQT. That was awesome! Good job. I'll look forward to working a shoot with you.
Earl, it was great to meet Mrs. Earl. You both are welcome to come back anytime.
Congratulations to the three new Riflemen!!
Mom, it was great to be able to hand you your Rifleman patch and to try to keep a straight face before you saw Dad with the water bottle.
Patrick, it was fun to see you work through the hard parts and frustration to finally make Rifleman.
Joe, well done. Making Rifleman at your first Appleseed, with a bolt action no less. <
To all three of you, I can't wait to work a shoot with you guys! Congrats on the orange hats.
Thanks to the Instructors for putting up with me and teaching me something in the process.
Pa Rah, Thanks for running such a good shoot and making me do all of the instruction that I didn't think I could. And telling me not to worry so much.. You and Mrs. Pa Rah are always welcome here.
I think my favorite exchange of the day was: "Hey, you out shot your wife this morning."
~ from an Instructor. "Well, First time for every thing!"
