Congratulations, :partytime: Rick! Well deserved.

I didn't think you were a day over 65!  :whistle:
Can't we all just agree to disagree in a civil fashion while the planet's last, fading hope of liberty and prosperity gets snuffed out?

No. We can't.

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…”

Righteous!  This is a huge win for Project Appleseed-MI

“Apathy, ignorance and laziness — those are the enemies that Appleseed is trying to fight,” said Glaser. “We want to make people aware of the sacrifices that were made.” The marksmanship skills taught between lectures were simply “a life skill that everyone should know.”

HUZZAH! I  knew you would make an excellent Shoot Boss after hearing your SB snitt at Dorr in May.
Congratulations Rick !

Congratulations Rick.  Green is most definitely your color. 
The hardest distance to shoot is the six inches between your ears.  It gets easier when you get out of your own way.  Self doubt and negative self talk have no place on the firing line. 
Once a shot is gone... good or bad, it is gone.   Focus on the next one. Make forty good first shots.

HUZZAH! Thank you for all the hard work it takes to achieve this accomplishment!  I hope to see you on the trail.  Hopefully the coof will stay away and will see you at the best IBC.😉
Last evening, it occurred to me that when a defender of Liberty is called home, their load lands upon the shoulders of the defenders left behind. Just as the Founders did their duty for Liberty, every subsequent generation must continue their work lest Liberty perish. As there is no way for the remaining adults to take on the work of those that die, we must pass the ideals and duties on to the children. -PHenery

I'm going to be that guy and resurrect a post.  I've had to pleasure to shoot with Rangerat a few times already. 

Congratulations Range Rat!  You did a great job at our Sparta event.  We all enjoyed it very much and it was very well ran!
