Another Texas Red Hat!
« on: November 21, 2017, 10:19:18 AM »
Ladies and Gentlemen!

It's officially official  ..:..

It's my HONOR and PRIVILEGE to introduce Texas' Latest Red Hat - Richard D. Jones!

Join me in congratulating him with a Texas Size
^:)^ YEEE-HAAWW  ^:)^

For those that know him, you're aware of his excellent marksmanship, storytelling and leadership.
Richard is a pillar of the Waco Texas Appleseed Cadre, the CTRP range, and a just a fun guy to hang out with.

...Those that don't know him, well, you're missing out!  Guess y'all just have to come out to Waco ;)  :F

Congrats Richard. After watching him give instruction and do the 3rd strike I decided it's time for the Red.

And man - he's one funny guy. Always a pleasure to hang out with.
I just wanted to be left alone.
