Fresh Boot Prints on the Appleseed Trail!
« on: June 18, 2012, 09:16:59 PM »
Pennsylvania!  Please give a warm welcome to Invictus Maneo, who qualified as Rifleman on June 17, 2012 at Beaver Falls, PA and immediately asked for an orange hat!  Thanks for stepping up to the task, IM!  Did I remember to give you a bucket?     ~~:)
One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.    Plato

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

Dear Mike,

Your loaner rifle opened my eyes.
I could not have done it without the Hogue stock and Nikon scope. You were a big part of this. Thank you.

Pax,
Lee

P.S. I have since bought another Nikon Rimfire scope for my other 10/22. Hope you have stock in Nikon.

No, I don't have any stock in Nikon but I hope you got the fixed 4x scope for that one. ;) I am glad I could help and really look forward to seeing you on the trail.

Was rapid fire easier without me staring at you from two feet away? >:D

WELCOME INVICTUS!!!!!!

I'm thrilled to have you aboard.  You will be a great instructor. 

Have you seen the way SSG Platz has his qualifying AQT framed?  It looks very nice.  If you missed it as his avatar ask him to see it.  It would be a fitting dedication to the persistance and commitment you put into this.

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

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.
