What a perfect day for a winterseed.  Full sun not much wind and I didn't even wear gloves in the afternoon.

Thanks to D-fly our Shoot Boss for running a good event, as a shooter, I had a lot of fun and even got a blue patch.  Take that Slim **)

Casey and Kelsey, the two young ladies really showed what the grit and determination of the American spirit are all about.  It was so great to see them smiling all afternoon.

Special shoot out to Bellringer, our youngest IIT, who has been stuck at 200 for awhile.  With  very little coaching, shot a 224 in the afternoon.  Jeez, Jarred, I told you, you had until you were 18 to get this done ^:)^  Anyway,  we had one happy 13 yr old IIT.
"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value."   T Paine

Thanks to everyone who came out to Winnequah rifle range and shared their Sunday with us. Remember you've just begun that journey on becoming a Rifleman. Persistence, practice, dry fire, dry fire.  We'll see you on the trail soon.

Congratulations BellRinger  O0 O0Welcome to the ranks of Rifleman !
You are now amoung the top 90% of america's best marksman .

We  feel the founders looking down with pride at what AS is doing to honor their accomplishments .Each of you has a special place in furthering the liberty ,they cherished .

Well done to each of you  O0
Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

Congrats again Bellringer!
And my hat is off to Casey and Kelsey for their persistence to learn! You two showed True Rifleman spirit from day one! You should be very proud of your accomplishments this weekend!

"Our forefathers gave us a better way to refresh the Tree of Liberty. If we give our blood and sweat now,  willingly, by using the political and social processes they secured for us with their lives, maybe our own Posterity will never have to unwillingly spill their blood and tears to re-secure their Liberty.
