It is an honor to announce that Texas has a new shoot boss.
Please help me in congratulating Josh, "Joe Bauer".
He completed his SBIT3 this past weekend.  Josh did a Fantastic job.  Even though we had some unusual challenges,  he made sure the event ran very smoothly and successfully!!  Josh is a great shoot boss and I look forward to working with him again!!!

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


HUZZAH!                  HUZZAH!                    HUZZAH!

Well done / well deserved, Josh!

(Seriously folks working with Josh is a treat!)

Mrs. Smith

Woo Hoo!!  congratulations, Josh!!  Green looks good on ya, brother.

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.

I had the honor of working the WY Circus and camping with him.  Awesome to see you in a green hat.  Congratulations and thank you for taking a bigger bucket.   I hope to see you at another event.
"That gallant officer is General Fraser. I admire him, but it is necessary that he should die. Do your duty."  - Morgan's orders to Timothy Murphy at the Second Battle of Saratoga 1777, Oct 7

Our cause is just . . . our country will be grateful - George Rogers Clark

"This country has been made by the Timothy Murphys, the men in the ranks. Conditions here called for qualities of heart and hand that Tim Murphy had in abundance. Our histories should tell us more about the men in the ranks, for it was to them, more than to the generals that we were indebted for our military victories." -  Franklin Delano Roosevelt, as New York Governor, 1929, at the dedication of the memorial to Murphy

Two Wolves

A moral compass provides a basis for making decisions; an action is good or bad, right or wrong when viewed in the light of the individual's moral bearing. If no moral compass exists for the individual, then decisions and actions are made on the basis of purely subjective thoughts. This leads to "If it makes me happy, or makes me feel good, or if it's something I simply want to do, then it is right and good."

Congratulations Josh!!!!  Thank you for pushing forward to grow our Texas ranks of Shoot Bosses.  This will most certainly increase the possibility of more Panhandle shoots.  Way to stick with it and make SB in such short time Josh.

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.
