Marc told me his brother was involved in Appleseed, so it was good to finally put a face and a name with that at Rattlesnake the other day. Looking forward to seeing you at Custer.

Great to hear from you again RL.

I think RL is talking about Custer, Washington.

And Colonial is thinking Custer South Dakota.

Still remember how to shoot?   ;D

Due to your early efforts in the program, AS has grown nicely in the Pacific NW.  If you want to get involved with the program again, I know I have an orange hat in the garage (just kidding).   

Looking forward to seeing you at DRRC! (as long as we get a few more shooters to make sure it happens).

RL had a lot to do with me earning that patch. Also some common sense I have taken to heart:

I like this area, since I have been healing.

I kind of remember how to do things. ::) O0
... to catch the fire in another American for sharing the skills and our heritage to our posterity. Maybe my perfect shots will be made by those I met along the trials and trails of Appleseed. I know that America is a nation of Riflemen.

Welcome back!
In giving us dominion over the animal kingdom, God has signified His will that we subdue the beast within ourselves.
John Lancaster Spalding

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin, 1775

"A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies."  George Washington 1790

“[T]o preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them…”
– Richard Henry Lee, Declaration Signer
