Hey y'all...

Did a concealed carry class today for a young man and his dad (a fellow club member). Jr is one of America's finest...West Point grad, 1LT in 82d Airborne, done a couple of tours in Afganistan. Jumps out of perfectly good airplanes and calls it fun, but I digress.

Class went well as expected (took him ~1.5 minutes to shoot the required 30 rounds, including a reload), but the real surprise came at the end. When I thanked him for the opportunity to have him in class and also for his service, he palmed this to me as his way of saying thanks.

Needless to say, I was shocked, pleased, flattered, honored...all at the same time. Jr definitely made this old man's weekend.

Pretty cool. We had some sheriff's office challenge coins made here a while back, I have a few of them. They aren't quite as cool as that one is though.

They're all cool, Bull...no matter the branch or service.

Very cool :thumbsup:

We didn't have Challenge Coins when I was in. If we did, I never saw one. :sigh:

Well...I would ask if they even had money way back then, but I suspect you and I are about the same age...so I ain't gonna ask, ok?

:supergrin:





So how's Ralph doing? Growing like a weed??
