Welcome new Maryland IIT: Off_paper!
« on: December 07, 2021, 11:34:17 AM »
Patrick (Off-paper) stepped up this past weekend to take an Orange Hat and join the Maryland cadre. Off_paper earned Rifleman at his first event and recently qualified Pistoleer as well! He was oh-so-close to earning his RKD rocker and hopes to continue that journey as an instructor.

Off_paper has expressed how important and urgent our mission is - it is clear that he has truly taken our message to heart.

Huzzah and Welcome!  :F

Huzzah!   :F
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.

If you want to get off to a really strong start in 2022, there is an Instructor Boot Camp in Charlottesville, VA on January 15-16 that a whole bunch of Maryland folks are attending with the Virginia crew. If you are interested, send me a PM.
