A huge THANK YOU to the NRA for hosting a 1-day rifle clinic on April 2nd, 2024!  14-shooters, twelve of which we're from the Leadership Institute, spent the day learning about the stories of April 19th, 1775 and Rifle Marksmanship as we celebrated Patriots Day!  Special thanks to Jim (Catch 1022) for bringing the loaners and doing an excellent job calling the Patriots Day volley at 4pm!  A huge THANK YOU to Dave (Old Dominion Iron) for telling the stories of Dangerous Women!   Jay (Brother Pilot) did a fantastic job supporting this event with ammo for the students and always being available to assist where needed!

Ed cleared the morning Red Coat!

I truly miss this range.  Now that I have "a little" more flexibility in taking PTO, I'm gonna figure out to make this work.

"Responsibility is a unique concept... You may share it with others, but your portion is not diminished. You may delegate it, but it is still with you... If responsibility is rightfully yours, no evasion, or ignorance or passing the blame can shift the burden to someone else. Unless you can point your finger at the man who is responsible when something goes wrong, then you have never had anyone really responsible."
― Hyman G. Rickover
