New Mexico has TWO New hats!!!!
« on: August 25, 2020, 08:11:46 AM »
Good morning, New Mexico! Promotion are complete, and it's time to cry out to the nation that in the heat and dust of the Sidney Paul Gordon Shooting Range in Otero County there were forged TWO new warriors for the cause!

Mahamotorworks and Subzero_Rabbit, husband and wife from out Albuquerque way, stepped up and accepted the invitation to help bail our little boat. In fact, they've ALREADY been scouting ranges in their area to help facilitate the return of Appleseed to the ABQ.  :F :F :snipersmi :snipersmi

Congratulations Mahamotorworks and Subzero_Rabbit! :F  I hope you find your time with Appleseed as rewarding and FUN as I have. Scott, I enjoyed our time together in Raton and look forward to meeting (and shooting  :---) with your wife.

Thanks for stepping up!  You have a wonderful state and awesome instructors to guide you!

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…”

Thanks for the warm welcome. We hope to meet everyone soon. Need to figure out a plan to have a BBQ or meet up at a park for a meet and greet.

We are trying to get Appleseed going in ABQ again and have some ideas to move it forward.

So what is Project Appleseed Business?  What would the Ghost of Project Appleseed say to us?

Business!' cried the Ghost of Project Appleseed, wringing its hands again.  “Liberty was my business; Heritage, History, Freedom, and Pursuit of Happiness, were, all, my business. The deals of Marksmanship were but a drop of water in the comprehensive ocean of my business!”
-Adapted from Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol.
