Join me in Welcoming Raquel, from Nashville, to the Appleseed cadre. She is from Nashville and took a blue hat at a shoot in Wright City, MO on October 10th.

Huzzah Raquel!  ^:)^ ^:)^

Welcome aboard! I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for Nashville. Hope to meet up with you down the trail.  O0

Huzzah!  Here is a picture from the event.
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…”

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Hear Ye!  Let it be henceforth known that kelevez is a Rifleman!  I ran a mini-seed this weekend and she shot a score of 210 on Saturday, November 28.  Not satisfied, she went back the next day and shot scores of 213 and 219.  I took a picture of the 213.  She was so happy!

P.S. She also cleared her first redcoat target on November 28.

Huzzah!

Welcome to the Tennessee cadre!  I hope to meet you very soon at an event!

Please feel free to contact me anytime with questions or suggestions.

My father didn't serve in WWII.  It wasn't for lack of trying.  He attempted to enlist 3 separate times.  The last time the doctor said he was too short.  He responded that he signed up again because he said he saw a poster that was recruiting short men to be pilots.  The doctor said, "Short, yes.  But this is ridiculous."  In my book, he's still a hero.
