"Unhappy it is, though, to reflect that a brother's sword has been sheathed in a brother's breast and that the once-happy and peaceful plains of America are either to be drenched with blood or inhabited by a race of slaves.  Sad alternative!  But can a virtuous man hesitate in his choice?" - George Washington - from a letter to a close friend after the events of April 19, 1775

"There is no nation on earth powerful enough to accomplish our (the United States) overthrow.  Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter.  From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence, I must confess that I do apprehend some danger.  I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants, and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men, and become the instruments of their own undoing." - Daniel Webster, June 1, 1837

Already signed up for August in Davilla....will bring ice packs and medical stuff for prevention of heat-related casualties....trying to encourage other medically-trained shooters I work with to get their AQT Appleseed-style.

This program MUST expand....
Never forget, even for an instant, that the one and only reason anybody has for taking your gun away is to make you weaker than he is, so he can do something to you that you wouldn't let him do if you were equipped to prevent it. This goes for burglars, and rapists, and even more so for politicians.

Just because you're not out looking for a fight doesn't mean a fight isn't out looking for you.

didactic's neighbor in Bastrop Co.

See you in August!

In the meantime, any AS'ers in the area need a place to practice, sight in, etc. let me know. We can have a mini or something out at my place.

Good to meet you at Davilla, dkrongard. Look forward to seeing you with a Rifleman badge soon!

I've wandered about, Mingus, Davilla, Sallisaw, Fisticuffs @ Prairie Rose, MykkaCity, and back home to Davilla, feeling kinda without a home.  But now I know why, I'm a goodwill ambassador from the Davilla Company of the Texas Foreign Legion stationed in the Green Country of NorthEastern Oklahoma.

Everyone starts somewhere Captain. ;) I am sure when you got your first bars they threw you straight into Training Ammunition and Supply Officer. (We would never do that ;))

We are just glad to have you aboard. If I can be of any assistance to any of you guys in getting things rolling or getting set up, please feel free to PM me or call me. I really feel like Texas is going to lead the way into the Appleseed Future. We have a lot of exciting things going on and a lot of hard working guys here in Texas helping to drive the program forward.

Having looked over your previous posts, it looks like you and I are in similar situations.

Yeah, I'm an NCO (and 53, ARNG), not an officer, but I see a LOT and when I speak, many folks listen.

Also neck deep in what I do for Uncle, and headed for SWA in a couple of years (or less).

Funny thing is, I'm not a grunt, I'm a Maintenance guy. Some of our best shooters and MG guys are Maintenance. The 2 best M2/MK19 guys in the Inf Bn I support are in my section (the Bn's opinion, as well as mine).
They have men amongst them who know very well what they are about, having been employed as Rangers against the Indians and Canadians and this country being much covered with wood, and hilly, is very advantageous for their method of fighting. . . . ".  Lord Percy

Words of encouragement always gratefully recieved.

Having earned those green-striped blue ribbons with the those shiny "E's" on them, I know how high the hill is to climb, and there's no sneaking around that bad boy and exgressing in good order, either.  I am going to be my own hardest critic, no matter what.

So, I'm feeling driven, and untill I get back to my comfort zone, delivering the mail consistently, I already know I'm going to be a bad example to others (since I know I can push myself).  Which, too, is an annoyance, as we clearly need to bring more into the fold, and showing them is always better than lecturing them.

As the old quote goes, Lif so shorte, the Craft so longe to learn.

The June 14 Davilla AS was my first, and definitely not my last. I will be back with several others who need to wake up and experience Appleseed.
I can't make the August AS and probably not the Sept AS, but I will be back ASAP.

Howdy from South Austin.

I attended both the May and June shoots out at Scout's luxury resort in the sun. 

Looking forward to shooting a Rifleman score in August and hoping to get some time in on the KD range. 

In the mean time, I'm working to get some new shooters out there with me.

See you fine folks then.
