« on: April 11, 2012, 05:40:09 PM »
Hay Chainsaw, got the artwork for the patch we were talking about the other day.  I also changed the order volume, that way it went from $12.00-to $2.00 or so, big difference! Let me know what you think, anyone else feel free to comment as well attached is the artwork.

Lord make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true, and my hands faster than those who would seek to destroy me.  Grant me victory over my foes, and those  that wish to do harm to me and mine. Let not my last thought be if I only had my Gun; and loard if today is truly the day that you take me home, let me die in a pile of empty brass.

How does one Qualify to get one of these patches?

Or can one just be ordered?

I'm in.  Have an Ohio patch from the IBC tha needs balanced out.
Last evening, it occurred to me that when a defender of Liberty is called home, their load lands upon the shoulders of the defenders left behind. Just as the Founders did their duty for Liberty, every subsequent generation must continue their work lest Liberty perish. As there is no way for the remaining adults to take on the work of those that die, we must pass the ideals and duties on to the children. -PHenery

Latest update, should be to the house by Friday, but no later than Sat. I know we have all seen the pictures on the computer, but I'm really excited to get this thing in my hands and see it in person. I think it's going to be awesome!

Sorry guys, got to the house tonight around 10pm from Audubon and still no patches.... Hopefully they will be here Monday. If you are an instructor (Red Hat, and above) and you want your free one, before I happen to see you at the next shoot PM me your address and I will get it out to you as soon as I get them, if you don't care, I'll see you when I see you and just give it to you then.

Alex, great meeting you at Palmerton this weekend, and fantastic patch!

Tom -- apparently the original flag is hanging the the State Museum of Pennsylvania (not the State House like I incorrectly told you):

http://mysite.verizon.net/vzeei5e7/thefirstparegiment/id3.html

Excerpt:

Quote
The Regimental Flag
     The Regiment's flag is a deep green field with a crimson center square. In the square is a hunter with a spear, a lion in a snare and the regimental motto in Latin: "Domari Nolo", i.e. "I refuse to be subjugated". The flag was described in a letter dated March 8, 1776 from Lieutenant-Colonel Edward Hand to James Yates of Lancaster, Pennyslvania. The original flag hangs in the Pennsylvania State Museum in Harrisburg, PA.

Alright everyone, the 1st PA Rifles patch has been fielded for about 2 months and seems to be a big hit, I only have about 15 or so left and it looks like we may go through the ones currently in circulation so I'm going to Make another order soon, now with that said if there are at least a few people who are interested I was thinking about a color varent of the patch ( red on green, instead of green on green), let me know what you guys think color or keep it the same.

Just earned my orange hat yesterday. Huzzah! 7th generation Western Pennsylvanian.
Thanks for doing the legwork on this patch. Very frustrated trying to find the flags of Colonial Pennsylvania. My G-G-G-Grandfather Sergeant Hugh Foster served the cause in the 8th Pennsylvania Continentinal Line under Captain Abraham Smith.  6th Penna. Cont. Line, App. Feb. 2, 1776, under Capt. Abraham Smith.

Please send info regarding ordering this patch.
Thank you for your efforts.

IM,

What happened is, I forgot to give you one.  At least I remembered the Rifleman patch and the orange hat!  Thanks again for your persistence, and for stepping up!  Look for a PM soon regarding something else I forgot to do RE: your orange hat.  I'll get you the 1st PA patch the next time I see you.

Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves.    Churchill

I would not change the color. We already have patches in the field and I am not sure changing them would serve any purpose. Let's keep them as they are.

I like the OD myself, but Chainsaw had mentioned it awhile back, when they first debuted, so now that it's close to time to order more I figured I would put some feelers out there.

I believe the center part is suppose to be a little bigger if that is corrected it may make it a litter easier to read.

Ok, had a couple of people tell me that they were running low on patches, so I just put in another order. The color  skeam will remaine the same but I am making the center 30% bigger and also changing g the back to the iron on plastic backing, seems that most people are just sewing this on, and it also in my openion anyway makes for a more durable feel to the patch. I can just add a piece of velcro to a few of the New ones for myself.

Let me know if any of you guys are running low, or just want to re up I can mail them to you guys out in the wilderness and for all the guys in the civilized region I  will be seeing you at your next shoot more than likely, or another option is at IkD in sept.

Score me another 8-10 or so.  I seem to be handing these out more than Rifleman patches.  Not sure if that's good or bad...
But, i love the idea of these.  Great job, Alex.

Thanks, it seems people like these more than the rifleman patches. I guess it's the stirring story we tell before they engage the red coat. Everybody enjoys owning a piece of history.

Alex,

Do you have patches I can order  I had a woman today one shot away from clearing a Red Coat and would have felt bad not having a patch to give her.

I would like to order 10 to have on hand.

Thanks,
