A Good Time in Mobile Today
« on: October 31, 2016, 12:04:52 AM »
I attended my third AS this weekend in Mobile, and as usual had a good time, learned new things about myself and being a better Rifleman.
It was also my youngest son's first AS and he had a lot of fun and learned an immense amount new knowledge, he bettered himself as a shooter and made some new acquaintances.

I'd like to give a huge shout out for the IITs, I and SB, they did a wonderful job.
Bob, Wayne, John, Don and Callie, thank you for y'alls work and enthusiasm.
The instruction was first rate, the history lessons told with feeling and above a safe environment.

Had a great group of people out there on the line, I think everyone came away a better shooter.

This was my third AS, my third RM patch and I've finally taken a Orange Hat for IIT.
I hope that I can conduct myself to the degree that I've witnessed from all the other AS crews.
I only hope to share my love for shooting and shooting accurately, for this country and the freedoms/liberties we have and the sacrifices made to garner them for us.
Pray that we never need fight for them again.

ChileRelleno -->  Awesome!  Thank you for stepping up.  Congratulations on your 3rd RM patch!  A co-worker was supposed to be there with you all.  I hope to hear more about the event from him.  It was his first AS.  I hope we shoot together some time.

Welcome, and thanks for stepping up. I hope that you find yourself on the same path that I have, over time. I have found that the more I study, preparing to teach, the more I learn (obviously). The more I teach, the more I learn. And, lastly, the more that I interact with different groups, the more I learn. I consider that a trifecta. What could be better?   O0
