Nice pics!

Thanks, but Bud's 18 MegaPixel Digital Rebel takes MUCH better pictures than my phone.

Nice pics, Bud. Hope everything is okay at home.

Anyone else see the young man doing the whole march on a pair of crutches? I know I did.

Has anyone seen the money shot yet from up on the rail road bridge?
"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks"
-Thomas Jefferson-

Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I feel. One is the colors that fly high and proud the red, the white, the blue. The other ones got a rattle snake with a simple statement made, don't tread on me, is what it says and I'll take that to my grave

Everything's fine. There was just a decision that needed to be made and my signature. We had an unexpected opportunity come up.

Sorry I missed the actual walk though.

I'm not.

Maybe sometime later this afternoon or this evening the page will finally be up because people refuse to reduce their pictures.

I'm sorry to be putting a damper on peoples excitement of another hugely successful IGOLD but, come on....

Is it THAT hard to reduce your pictures so that us poor folk with dial up can enjoy them too??
"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes,
but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda,
they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles." — Jeff Cooper, The Art of the Rifle

I know it doesn't show the size of the crowd, but I *really* like that last one with the SPD cruiser in the shot. :o

Great pictures. What we really need is a Helicoptor shot from above to show the whole crowd in one picture. That would be priceless. I'm sure ISRA has budget for a copter next year, right? :rolleyes:



Lou, I really liked the last pic, of the front of the march coming to the capitol.
