Tennessee Beast in a Red Hat
« on: July 28, 2019, 05:58:08 AM »
TB it was great to see you the other day at the NRA RSO class in Waverly.  It wasn't that long ago I meet you at my 1st Project Appleseed in Manchester and we've both came along way, in a short time, since then.  That Red Hat looks good on you buddy!  Congratulations  O0  If anybody got pics please post here. 

For the Mission  :F

I'm not sure what's more amazing here:

His strong dedication to the cause, or the fact that he's missing five pounds of facial hair...lol...

Congrats, TB - well done!

"Responsibility is a unique concept... You may share it with others, but your portion is not diminished. You may delegate it, but it is still with you... If responsibility is rightfully yours, no evasion, or ignorance or passing the blame can shift the burden to someone else. Unless you can point your finger at the man who is responsible when something goes wrong, then you have never had anyone really responsible.”

Thank everyone for the kind words.  Here are pictures of my retired orange hat (pre and post volley).  I asked the shooters to aim for the silhouette.  I think they did an awesome job.  It is currently displayed in my office.

Benjamin Franklin, 1775

congratulations!  You'll always be an honorary member of the Florida cadre!

tk
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.

Congratulations Tennessee Beast!  I was in attendance and had the privilege of creating some well-placed holes in the Orange Hat down range.  Had a great time.

Thanks to Navy Doc for capturing the moment.  I'm in the Smokies tshirt in the background. 

Look forward to the I.T.T. role myself.
