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


YeeeeHaaaa!!!  :beer:

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.
