Tennessee's newest orange hat Eagle Keeper
« on: September 15, 2020, 10:09:53 AM »
Join me in welcoming Tennessee's newest orange hat Eagle Keeper to the cadre. This was his 7th event and he previously fired a rifleman score. He shot 5 requal scored last weekend the lowest of which was a 235. Needless to say he earned his DISTINGUISHED patch.  Whoever took the picture of him getting his orange hat please post it. Here is a shot of his last Red Coat on Sunday.

Welcome Eagle Keeper!  Thanks for stepping up!
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

I have come here to chew gum and teach riflemen the art of shooting one hole groups and I’m all out of bubblegum.
