Pennsylvania has a new Rifleman "christened" in Georgia
« on: June 20, 2012, 11:12:58 AM »
Last weekend we had an Appleseed here at our range in north Georgia and two Pennsylvania National Guardsmen from Glen Lyon and Shickshinny who were attending a technical school nearby came to the event. Jeff S and Chris D both made great progress. After having some problems with .22's (now chalked up to bad ammo) we loaned them a couple of AR's. Jeff ended up shooting a 210 and getting his Rifleman patch and the attendant 210 christening. Both these guys would serve well in colored hats if you can talk them into taking one.


One last thing, they're great guys and they're tough! They both spent Saturday in 95 degree heat with 90+ % humidity in long sleeved flannel shirts. They must have been acclimated by weather from their last deployment.

Hope to see you guys at an Appleseed in PA.
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

Way to go Guys!  When are you comming to a Seed at home?
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
