Rifleman wedding!
« on: May 21, 2014, 03:20:52 PM »
Last Saturday, two Riflemen married each other. Luv2BFree & I met at a Harvard shoot back in 2009 - I was Shoot Boss, she was a shooter. (She shot Rifleman in a tropical storm, BTW!)

The ceremony included a hand-fasting - two of the three cords used were our rifle slings.



The bride wore an Officer's ACP in a Dragon Leatherworks Flatjack holster, with her Rifleman patch stitched to the holster.




The groom wore his Officer's ACP in a UBG Canute holster. Hey, it's tough to dance with a rifle over your shoulder.




Thanks to Fred for starting up Project Appleseed, and Nickle for nagging me into going to my first shoot. We wouldn't have met, otherwise.
Unhappy it is ... 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 slaves. Sad alternative! But can a virtuous man hesitate in his choice?

A moral compass provides a basis for making decisions; an action is good or bad, right or wrong when viewed in the light of the individual's moral bearing. If no moral compass exists for the individual, then decisions and actions are made on the basis of purely subjective thoughts. This leads to "If it makes me happy, or makes me feel good, or if it's something I simply want to do, then it is right and good."

Very nice!

The best of wishes to you both!  Huzzah!   May you be happy and blessed.
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
