The show is coming up in about three weeks and as of today we have only ten tables still available.  This will be a good show and will likely be sold out, so please don't wait to try to get a table at the door.  Contact Dave Johnson by Email at:  area2@asmic.org to reserve a table.  See you there.

Hi Bob,
  Just noticed that no one had responded to your inquiry.  Hope I'm not too late. 
  Great patch you have.  Japanese quilted embroidery from the late 1940s--early 50s.  What would you like to know about it?

Amen, Brother.  My wallet has always been my most severe critic.
To get the ball rolling, why don't you throw something up in one of the categories you are interested in and let's see who pops up.  I'm hoping it won't just be me.  Another good thing about this forum is the ease of posting photos.  It's a breeze.

U.S. Army / Re: Army Marksmanship Bar "Rifle-A" Question
« on: May 19, 2016, 11:37:04 am »
Since I personally didn't know the answer to your question, I passed it on to Bill Emerson who must be the World's greatest authority on the subject.  Here is what he says about your question:   

The rifle qualification bar letters describe the course used for qualification. 
Each course varied by the distances fired, the number of targets, and the number
of rounds fired.  The A course was the normal infantry qualification course for
example, but if distances were limited locally due to not being to shoot at the
long distances, or if the number of rounds given to a unit for the year were
less, then shorter ranges and less rounds dictated the use of Course B, C, or D. 
Some branches, such as Coast Artillery, usually fired only on the shorter ranges
since coast artillerymen would use their rifles only in a defensive manner.  The
various practices leading up to the formal qualification were prescribed to
match the planned qualification course.  For some firing tables, rounds had to
be fired in a prescribed time.
 
Training Reg 150-10, dated September 16, 1926, calls for infantry and cavalry EM
in line companies and troops in regiments fire the A Course.  EM of Inf, Cav,
CA, Engineers, QMC, Ordnance, and CWS armed with rifles who do not fire "A" were
to fire any of the courses depending upon the regimental or battalion commander. 
The details of who was to fire takes more than one page.  The details of the 4
qualification courses take up 5 pages.
