Prayers Needed
« on: April 14, 2011, 07:34:31 PM »
A couple of our local instructors are in need of our support at this time.  Their mother has passed on.   I will leave it to them to fill in the particulars when they are ready.  At this time, it is enough to support them with our thoughts and prayers.

If you will not fight when you can easily win without bloodshed.
   You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory because it
      is better to perish than to live as slaves.

I got a phone call this afternoon regarding this.... They've been in my prayers for some time now.  It wasn't unexpected, but it's still tough to deal with.
Your version of "ineffective" does not necessarily reflect the truth....
Having been "ineffectively" taught to the Rifleman Standard and having been "ineffectively" taught to teach others to the Rifleman Standard, I believe I prefer the "ineffective" over the other choice.
