October 29th, 2011
We opened the Point Blank Range (PBR) in beautiful Moorsville, N.C. outside of Charlotte. The event helped to raise much needed funds for “Welcome Home Veterans” who run America’s Most Patriotic Coffee Shop which is a living history museum! The morning started at Richard’s Coffee Shop where we juiced up on cups of joe and special conversations with WWII Veterans and a bluegrass band made up of local vets that brought me to tears! Mike and Tim then headed up the RECON Car Rally as Grand Marshall’s riding in a classic military ambulance. (You know, the kind on M.A.S.H. with the big Red Cross on the side.)
Along the route, the drivers stopped at PBR where we were waiting with food and beverages along with the opportunity to meet Mrs. N.C. Jessica Harvey, wife of MLB Chris Harvey, sign up for raffle tickets, check out the many auction items and enjoy tours of this fantastic range and their Patriot Club. This range has a country club concept and unlike others we know, this one is affordable!
If you get a chance to see this place. Please don’t hesitate to go in and say hello to Owners Jim and Dave and get a lesson from their expert trainer, Troy. Please tell them I said Hello!
WOUNDED WARRIOR WEEKEND – JULY 2011 With Marine Medal of Honor recipient, Dakota Meyer.
We cannot display this gallery We spent 5 days lodged at Bald Ridge Marina in Cumming, Ga. aboard a friend’s Lake Lanier houseboat. Took one full day to race Panoz on the tracks of Road Atlanta and shoot all the automatic firearms we could handle, from my friend Cliff’s shop – the Dixie Ammo Dump. Needless to say there was some big guys sleeping and drooling like satisfied little babies in their car seats on the way home that day.
Jim Blaylock, Chairman and John Bircher, PR Director from Military Order of Purple Hearts Service Foundation, took us up on our invitation to witness what fellowship looks like when allowed to blossom in a recreational setting. This event resulted in a substantial grant increase for the non-profit and most importantly, everyone enjoyed themselves.
This is JEFF’s story. When I learned he was using MMA as his coping mechanism for dealing with PTSI(Post Traumatic Stress Injury) from combat and was now the only thing getting him out of bed in the morning since his father committed suicide, it was time to make some calls. Just then…the phone rang. The result was totally unexpected and what I call a “God thing”.
A good “friend and decorated patriot” called me just after I hung up the phone. He happened to be driving back home, having attended yet another funeral for a brother in arms. This friend is a military consultant now for a couple big corps. and when he learned of Jeff’s story, he immediately hooked us up with all VIP passes for the Jones vs. Evan’s Championship fight in Atlanta that next weekend! Jeff would get to meet his heroes as they would have all the most popular UFC fighters in attendance! Having no idea how I would get him there, I made a couple calls and found people who care to take this war fighter in crisis, on an adventure he would never forget. Much appreciation goes out to the patriots at Hooters, Soldier Water and Wounded Vets.org for helping to make it happen!
Jeff had the time of his life meeting the UFC stars, but when they learned more about him…the respect was truly mutual.
Jeff Collins has his motto, “Hard To Kill,” tattooed on his back.
Special thanks to: Howard Altman, Sr. Military writer for the Tampa Tribune who covered the story.
