I have come here to chew gum and teach riflemen the art of shooting one hole groups and I'm all out of bubblegum.
You can't shoot perfect if you don't know what perfect looks like.


Every time I teach a class, I discover I don�t know something - Clint Smith

Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday. � John Wayne


Congratulations 22Salty!!!  I look forward to working events with you and moving our mission forward.

Taylor - thank you for the investment you've made in the MN team over the last 2 years.  Without you, we'd not have the foundation we do to continue the mission.  Thank you so much.

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

Practice every time you get a chance. - Bill Monroe

I have to underline that sentiment. Taylor gave me my first Rifleman patch, and gave his recommendation for two of my IIT promotions. He certainly made an investment in me, and the whole Minnesota program.
