To our very own tittiger the definition of the perseverance of a Rifleman a great big HUZZAH!!!!!!!  ^:)^ with a score of 212 that coveted patch is all yours baby.

FWIW Joe shot a 209 on the first AQT of the week and hovered like a moth at a light bulb in the 190 to 20ish range till finally pushing over the top.  ..:..

Way to do Joe! Sorry I missed the patching ;).  Woooooooh :~
A Hessian captain (one of the 30,000 German mercenaries used by England) wrote in 1778, "Call this war by whatever name you may, only call it not an American rebellion; it is nothing more or less than a Scots-Irish Presbyterian rebellion."

"I need not take much pains to show, that the principles of this system, are extremely pernicious, impolitic, and dangerous. Here is a revolution as radical as that which separated us from Great Britain."  "I Smell A Rat!"  Patrick Henry

"Because they transgressed My covenant, And against My law they have rebelled... They have made kings, and not by Me, They have made princes, and I knew it not"  Hosea 8:1 and 4

The best part of the whole weekend was watching Joe take that patch. It's awesome to see a determined man succeed.

Thank you so much gentlemen. 

Thanks for being there and so  supportive. Without that
I am sure I would have called it quits. There were a heck of a lot of you
that coached and mentored me.    ~~:)   I don't even think I can  remember
all of your names. But I give you all a very heart felt thanks for your dedication.


I can honestly say that you are collectively the finest group of people
that I have ever had the pleasure to associate with.

Thanks again....

Congrats, Joe!  I don't know you from Adam but after this last weekend I can certainly appreciate the amount of effort you put into this.  Will you be wearing an orange hat soon?  Will you be doing the AQT "proper" at the distance range next?

Great work.  I really like that phrase from the handout, it goes something like "A Rifleman Persists" or something like that.  It is true and you earned it.

Albeit late, congrats Joe!

If you don't have a centerfire for KD, I would certainly let you use mine and throw in the ammo to boot.

Thanks much Jason I have an SKS as soon as I get some tech sights on it.   I am not sure I can do it with iron sights but I am going to give it a try. :-)
