    Met John Rice a month or so ago. He was referred to our shop by shooting companion Bill Smith. John is truly a remarkable individual. Watch the video for a glimpse of what a Marine with a Love for GOD and Country can accomplish when he sets his mind to it! We just finished a 6.5 PRC for him. Seems that being a one thousand yard record holder just isn't enough. Good Luck on your quest for a one mile group. Gat

    Outstanding!

    But for your edification...we're never "ex" Marines, just Marines..and always that...unless they decided to quit.

    Thanks for posting!

    One of my students is paralyzed down his right side. Another has no arms. Both are unbelievable long range shooters. Never doubt a man with a goal.

    Semper Fi sir! Scary to think I've been retired almost 10 years...Time flies. Y'all shoot safe... and straight.

    About 30 yrs now for my brother. He doesn’t call it retirement, he likes to say he’s “on stand-by duty”. And he would jump back into service immediately if our country needed him to. Got a lot of respect for that man!

    May God Bless that man. Like I have said before our men and women in the Armed Forces are our most important citizens. Thank you all for your service and dedication to our country.

    Are there any trainers for paralyzed shooters? I have a buddy who’s paralyzed from the waist down from an IED. He just got a tikka TAC in 6.5CMand he’s having trouble shooting it. I would help, but I’m about 9 hours away. Are their any coaches in the south Florida area?

    If you can get him to California I'll give him a free 2-day class. Fund my travel and I'll go to Fl and teach him there.

    Amazing what a person can do when he dedicates himself, in spite of tremendous obstacles. Wonderful accomplishment! Contrast to the snowflakes who cry over hurt feelings, and feel entitled to free everything.
