My son JWashington and I took a little time out in the Morning of 4/19 to go shoot a bit.

all 22lr , I had borrowed the scope off my one of my Appleseed 10/22s  to equip a New Deer rifle last fall , I have had the new Optic since January but hadn't gotten time to sight in yet.

with my mat , sling and target at 25m I am all sighted in now.

That night, April 18th, I read her the story of Patriots' Day. Yes, it was abbreviated. And yes, I had to distract her with images from a Star Wars book that I pretended to read from. But, hey, she is 2. Besides, i told my wife, that if she asked, we would tell her Paul Revere was a Jedi.  **)

I'm laughing @ Paul Revere being a Jedi! I approve this message!!!

A few of us were able to gather in North Florida for an April 19th memorial Volley. A short video of the event is posted here:

Worked on putting more coats of clear coat on some laser practice stocks. (So they can be wiped down COVID-19 style :))
My husband and I went to the range, had to take American and We The People 1776 :)


Whoa! Those are marvelous! Nice Work!  O0
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.

Didn't shoot.
Did not wear any Appleseed regalia.
No mentioning  the heros of the revolution.

I did tell everyone who would listen about how we are giving up freedom for false safety.

This scare is mostly media driven hype.

The corona is a virus very easily spread, but with few problems for most people.

We cower in our homes at the demand of the ruling class.

We have sold our progeny into slavery by spending Trillions that do not exist.

Good training for a subservient population.

This virus, like many before will pass after most of us have been exposed and develop antibodies to fight it.
This gives us all a better chance of fighting the virus in it's future mutations.


My son Nathaniel and I went out to Birchwood and shot a bunch of AQTs and Redcoat targets.  Shot the M1, the AR, the 10/22s, the Marlin 795, my first rifle (Remington 572A pump-Dad gave it to me for my 12th birthday in 1975), the Savage Mk II and the M1 Carbine.  Been having a lot of fun getting that M1 Carbine to shoot (Tip: Steel bed the recoil plate! Accuracy starts there!).

I'm thinking that my son is finally coming to the conclusion that Appleseed instruction is pretty good stuff. He's been going to the range with me most every weekend this year and this past weekend he shot his first, practice, Rifleman score (222) with that bolt action Savage Mk II.  I'm thinking he finally had that "A-Ha!" moment where solid position, NPOA and the six steps got took hold.  For example, he took his time (4:37) on stage 4 and cleaned slow prone with 100 points. He was quite pleased and proud of himself.

Was a proud Dad moment too.

So, now that he's able to do it in practice all he needs is this Covid/Cornona business to stop and we get him in a real Appleseed Clinic.
