Alaska has a new Green Hat!
« on: October 19, 2020, 11:35:55 PM »
Be it hereby recognized that OldMikey, Alaska Rifleman #75, has earned the rank of Shoot Boss, and was thus issued his Green Hat at the Cordova Trap and Gun Club on October 10th, 2020.

OldMikey has been a solid Instructor, having nearly worn out his Red Hat working events all across the state of Alaska. 

Three Huzzah's for OldMikey!


Huzzah!

Huzzah!

Huzzah!

Congratulations, buddy!  And thank you for stepping up!
In giving us dominion over the animal kingdom, God has signified His will that we subdue the beast within ourselves.

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

If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. (James Madison)

"Young man, what we meant in going for those Redcoats was this: we always had governed ourselves and we always meant to. They didn't mean we should."
(Captain Levi Preston, of the Danvers militia, at age 91, remembering the day)

That it is an indispensable duty which we owe to God, our country, ourselves and posterity, by all lawful ways and means in our power to maintain, defend and preserve those civil and religious rights and liberties, for which many of our fathers fought, bled and died, and to hand them down entire to future generations.  Suffolk Resolves, September 9, 1774, attributed to Dr. Joseph Warren
