 ;D Sure looks better than the big ugly guy under my RWVA hat, and I have been places where I could have used some eager help, but his great parents wouldn't have allowed him to hang with old fools that would just have teased him into some foolish act of boyhood bravery (that is the father's job). :cool2:
... to catch the fire in another American for sharing the skills and our heritage to our posterity. Maybe my perfect shots will be made by those I met along the trials and trails of Appleseed. I know that America is a nation of Riflemen.

He certainly does look ready!  The best place to start is by reading him (or having him read) Paul Revere's Ride.  Get those AS values instilled in him early, then start teaching him prone steady-hold-factors. ;D O0

Great pic! :)
