Welcome DrRichP. Tell us a little about yourself.
Our history is not a list of dates and places. It is a dynamic adventure of freedom and individual courage.

Dr.Rich
 Congrats Sir,
You have become a real Trailblazer!
I am pleased to have had the honor of having you on my line. I will be able to say I knew him back when.
 BTW what is the adaptive all about?
I work at the VA with the old" disabled war vets.

Sly,
Visit Adaptive AppleseedTM Admissions Manual for the basic info.  Adaptive shooters are encouraged to get into the various positions, if they can safely do so.  The Prosthetics Dept (VAPD) has an obligation to supply adaptive sporting equipment except firearms, if the sports regimen is part of their current treatment plan. Some VAPDs will go the extra mile in acquiring adaptive equipment getting absolute cutting edge goods, and others, well...

If you run into problems PM me, and I'll try to help.  Our VAPD Chief is a shooter, as is most of our PT Dept, and Admin. so we are lucky in that respect.  One gate opening technique I've found effective is to invite the [necessary] person(s) to an AppleseedTM either as a shooter, or for just the history presented.  Contact the SB first to see if there's room on the line, ask abut Guests explaining the whys & wherefores.

Tom
