Caliper,  was that picture taken in the UP?  One of those gravity defying views.

Congratulations Storm trooper.   :)  Keep up the good work..... Posterity is counting on you.

Nice work!

Fly-Boy and I will see you at the IBC!

Can't we all just agree to disagree in a civil fashion while the planet's last, fading hope of liberty and prosperity gets snuffed out?

No. We can't.

Thanks everyone.  I do have to send a special thanks to Caliper for challenging me to become an instructor, Superheat for spending hours with me on history in is barn of knowledge, No.6 for a kick in the pants when I needed it, and Mr Surplus and Waveman for their positive support and being themselves.  Lastly I have to thank my family who is 100% supportive of my involvement with Project Appleseed, it's great having a wife that never gives any grief when there is an AS weekend written on the calendar.

The hardest distance to shoot is the six inches between your ears.  It gets easier when you get out of your own way.  Self doubt and negative self talk have no place on the firing line.  Once a shot is gone... good or bad, it is gone.   Focus on the next one. Make forty good first shots.
