The Rifleman’s Quarter Mile

The gray haired man followed their trail from Concord.  He would ride his white mare toward the column until he was within range, then turn his horse, throw himself off, and aim with his long gun resting on the saddle.  The aim was said to mean sure death and the Redcoats came to dread him.  Whenever he was sighted, a warning cry went up: “Look out for the man on the white horse!”

The man was Hezekiah Wyman, age 55, and a true Rifleman.

Why Shoot Long Distance?  Because it is the proof that what you have learned works and that

you are ready to be confident calling yourself a Rifleman.  It is your inheritance to master!
