We in America do not have government by the majority-we have government by the majority who participate......All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.
Thomas Jefferson


The right to freedom is the gift of God Almighty....The rights of the Colonists as Christians may be best understood by reading, and carefully studying the institutes of the great Lawgiver and head of the Christian Church: which are to be found clearly written and promuligated in the New Testament.
― Samuel Adams




So proud... they grow up so fast...


Outstanding Jason!!  You've worked hard.  Promotion is well deserved.



Thank you all for your encouragement, it's sincerely appreciated.  I couldn't immediately respond to this post because right after I received my spiffy new hat, I was on the road up to Gainesville for a Known Distance shoot. 

On a personal note: I had previously earned the Morgan's Shingle patch but during that shoot I added a shiny star for connecting on that shingle while standing.  It's been quite a weekend for me.

I mean this sincerely when I say that where I am now, and any talents I may have to share, have very much been a team effort.  I am appreciative of everyone that has helped me along the path so far.  All I can say is "thank you" and say that I will continue to work to grow as a firearms enthusiast and as a guide for others, all in service to our greater goal of spreading the message of liberty.

May God bless, and thank you all for the faith you've placed in me.

Tennessee Beast

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

Practice every time you get a chance. - Bill Monroe
