The moment we've been waiting for!!
« on: May 04, 2021, 01:13:38 AM »
Ladies and gentlemen, please join me in welcoming to the Appleseed Host Range family....

Founder's Ranch, in Edgewood, NM!  ^:)^

Founder's Ranch is a 480 acre facility about 40 minutes east of Albuquerque.  They have about 20 bays, ranging 50 to 100 yards in depth, with longer ranges planned for the near future by the new owners of this private shooting range.  :1luvu

A host range agreement is on file, and once we've finalize the I's and T's, we'll begin scheduling events at this very nice facility.   :F

More to come as we have it!  I still have a card or two up my sleeve  :cool2:

Huzzah!!!

You do not find Many Shooting Ranges with a Little White Church on site.

Looks to be a Wonderful Venue.

Oh boy, let's do stuff there.  Help get the Albuquerque folks excited and active in Appleseed.  I volunteer to help.  They need help in becomming a "Home Range."

This is some great news for NM Appleseed and Liberty! Albuquerque is an untapped resource of Americans who need to hear the message and I look forward to coming to help out!

Sufficient speed, Acceptable drag.

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.

Remember, cows are not "a safe direction".
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…”

Mrs. Smith, Founders Ranch Range just hired Glenn Plunkett as their Chief Training Officer.  He is a great dude, if you get the chance say, "HI" to him!

Working on that right now, sir! My ABQ crew are pretty out of practice, so I'm thinking about rounding up one more experienced instructor to pad us out a bit.
