Quote of the day–Jeff Cooper

We discover with some gratification that a Swiss citizen, in order to maintain his rights of citizenship, must qualify annually with his rifle, even when he is on station overseas. We knew that the Swiss had to do this while in Switzerland, but we find that Swiss diplomats in Washington are experiencing some difficulty in finding a facility on which to maintain their Swiss citizenship. Riflemaster John Pepper has been helpful in this matter by encouraging these people to make use of the Fort Meade ranges where he conducts his training and competition operations.

  1. Yep John puts on a nice Swiss army shoot every year.

    I got started shooting practical pistol and rifle with Johns program. Neat guy.

    I still remember the night we were on range 1 at 500 yards and the wind was gusting up to 45 MPH, John was the only one left shooting. One word, Wow. Center of mass every shot with a scoped M14…

    Spectacular shooting.
