Finally! (Appleseed 12/13-14 Ramseur, NC)
« on: December 16, 2014, 01:55:33 AM »
Just made it  ;D ! This is my sedond AS, 235 at first try on Saturday, 240 & 238 on Sunday, with my CZ455 bolt action! My thanks go to Kid, Polonius, Pelon, Lawrence, Fred, and other great instructors (I don't know their forum names  :)) ) who show me the right path towards marksmanship. When I wrote my New Year's Resolution for 2014 , I didn't own a gun, let alone attending Appleseed and getting a patch. For me, this is quite a life achievement and I'm so blessed to come to Ramseur and learn from the best riflemen and true patriots.

Huzzah!

   Congratulations, Woo!

    Just adding the word "Huzzah!" to your vocabulary is a great mark of your progress! ;D

    I see a great future for you as a Rifleman!

That's 2 Appleseeds and several strong Rifleman Scores, great job! You should consider joining our group of Instructors. I hope to see you at the Rifleman's Bootcamp in March.

We are not only impressed by your progress and marksmanship skill but also your enthusiasm in bringing FOUR additional friends with you for the weekend.

Witnessing your colleague score Rifleman on the first AQT, Saturday afternoon, was most rewarding. Your group performed as superbly as any first time students we have had the privilege of instructing! ^:)^

Thank you guys for your warm and encouraging words! I'll continue working on my marksmanship and do my best to "respond to the sound of the trumpet"!   @@)
