8th Annual TexasCowboy Memorial Shoot - Live Thread
The Mom

Posted on 06/08/2013 3:35:38 PM PDT by laurenmarlowe

And so begins our annual 8th TexasCowboy Memorial Shoot. We are having a great time!

The Mom and crew are busy with family who stopped into town to attend the shoot and visit, so she asked me to get the thread started.

Look for comments and pictures over the next several days!

Thanks lauren for starting this thread! It is so much appreciated by me.

The past few days have been amazing, fun and lots of memories were made.

This shoot had the largest attendence to date, last count was 36!

I, and others, will post more details and pictures later . . . but right about now we have some serious margarita’s to drink.

I never had the chance to meet TexasCowboy, but like many of you, I wanted to pause a moment and honor the memory of this truly remarkable man. We are poorer without him, and Heaven is richer!

His words...

I don't dwell on horror stories like so many people on the support Web sites. I never look at the whole forest; I concentrate on one tree at a time. When I open my eyes in the morning, I thank God for the gift of another day, and it's the only day that's important.

... This is a family effort, and I can feel the love and compassion from all over this land.

God bless you TexasCowboy!

To the incredibly immoral (and likely liberal) thief who had the audacity to attend a conservative function and do you-know-what:

You have a dent in your brainpain AND your Mama raised you wrong. You need a good @sswhoopin’, punk. And I’m just the woman to do it. I’ll meet you at the Spurs game. Deal?

Maybe some day, I will be able to join this illustrious gathering of Freepers past and present.

Until then, sadly, I live through the photos.

You will never meet a better bunch of people and they are all true patriots. The Constitution runs strong in their veins.

The real Bonnie Parker was not that attractive.

The real Clyde Barrow wasn’t that frighting looking, certainly not as dangerous.

Once more the FReepers are beyond compare.

Where are the photos of the young teen boys?

Yes, the NRA will win skirmishes in the near future...BUT...they will eventually lose the war for the Second Amendment and the Constitution.

Why?

Answer: Because the Marxist have full control of our nation's compulsory socialist-entitlement K-12 schools, teacher training, and curriculum development. They have a choke hold on every cultural institution including the MSM and entertainment.

And....What are conservatives doing? Every day they turn their kids over to the Marxist enemy.

When the Marxists see photos like this, they laugh.

There was at least one there, and two young girls The girls were probably pre-teen. But in one case it was far from her first time at one of these Memorial Shoots. All three put lead down range.

Eacker and TheMom's kids were there but they are mid and early twenties. TheGirl is a Senior at an easter university where she plays on the Varsity volleyball team.

All of them put lead downrange AFAIK. My 11 or 12 y/o niece can keep her shots, with a 30-06 in a 5" circle at ...600 meter IOW we are working the issue.

Well ... when are you gonna join us? I tried to talk some into going to Canyon Lake to swim. We never made it there. On the way back to the cottages after the shoot though, I passed about a thousand kids hoofin’ it with tubes to the Guadalupe. Brought back some good memories!
