The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Off to the range for the weekend

Written By: Bob - Mar• 22•13
I don't think the weather is going to be this nice.

There’s snow in the forecast, so I don’t think I’ll be wearing shorts and a tee shirt this time.

This is going to be a fun, if stressful, Appleseed weekend in Ramsuer.

I’m doing most, if not all of the instruction tomorrow. That means I’m demoing prone position with a loop sling, sitting position with a Hasty sling, standing position with a loop sling, the I M C presentation, the COF for the Red Coat target, and the COF for each stage of the AQT. If I pull it off, I’ll earn my “red hat” and full instructor rating exactly a year after my first Appleseed. I also have the KD lecture on Sunday. I hope my voice holds out.

If this doesn’t make any sense to you at all, head to an Appleseed near you and it will!

    I decided to take some classes locally this weekend instead of making a 3 hour drive and spending a couple hundred dollars on travel expenses. Of course I’m also still recovering from the sunburn I got at an Appleseed last weekend.

    Shade at an Appleseed? I’ll bet you shoot those pansy NATO calibers as well… :-)

    Anyone up for making a run up to Canada?

    They have plenty and I know we could make it worth our while!

    Death before slavery!
