The Elusive 250 attained
« on: March 10, 2019, 06:26:11 PM »
Congrats to Chris M for achieving a perfect 250 score!!!!!  This is as rare as hen's teeth.. We've been fortunate enough to have 3 shooters (2 of them have done it TWICE at different shoots, respectively) achieve this over the last several years, so I gotta give a shout out to the MD Instructor Corps...   Huzzah and CONGRATS!!!!!   Pics posted on
Appleseed Maryland Facebook page shortly...

Also, Brian on this note Congratulations to Gunny (our VN Marine) from NY - he has done this a few times as I understand it - did it at my shoot two years ago. 

This was my target from last year. It was cold. Its a Jedi mind trick for sure.

That's some fine shooting right there!

The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed -- where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.

Perfect shooting!

Huzzah!

This patch has me practicing again.
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

Congratulations Chris.  :snipersmi
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.
