Congrats to you NavyShooter.



Nice!  Thanks for picking up a bigger bucket, Dan!   O0

Congratulations Navy Shooter!
"The constitutions of most of our States assert that all power is inherent in the people; that... it is their right and duty to be at all times armed." -Thomas Jefferson


Great work equals great rewards !! Congrats
Knowledge is power


Congrats, I knew it took persistence and determination to get there.

A Job well done!! Looking forward to working with you in that shiny new red hat!
"A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the
whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they
lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader."
~ Samuel Adams

Congratulations Dan and great job last weekend! Huzzah!
"The most natural and eligible mode of attack on the part of the people is that of detached parties of bushmen who from their adroitness in the habitual use of the firelock suppose themselves sure of their mark at a distance of 200 [yards]." - Thomas Gage, March 4th, 1775

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption
of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the
Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." - Daniel Webster

"When all connection, upheld by commerce, with the mother country, shall cease, it may be suspected that an independency of her government will soon follow." - Thomas Gage


Congrats Dan!!! I was glad to be there.
I don't always shoot AQT's, but when I do, I prefer iron sights.

Huzzah! Thanks for your hard work.
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


Thanks to all that posted here.
Most of you I have worked and hope to work with you again.

All of you SBs and Red Hats I have worked with own a piece of my Red Hat.
Thanks for the encouragement and advice.

See you soon



Congratulations NavyShooter!

You're hard work has definitely paid off!  :partytime:


CONGRATULATIONS and thanks for stepping up!

The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed -- where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.

-- Justice Alex Kozinski, US 9th Circuit Court, 2003


Congratulations Dan.  Hard work, yes, but worth it.


Totally agree, thanks Yates !!!

All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

I'm late to the party, but it was good to be there when you earned the hat.



It's not about perfection -- it's about progress!!

I LOVE this stuff!

"Perhaps you and I have lived with this miracle too long to be properly appreciative. Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again."  Ronald Reagan
