Thanks for the support.

What he said. Thanks!

Hey folks, I just spent three days with these folks. They're very professional and I have every confidence in them.

If you haven't donated yet, please do. Throw in five, ten or twenty bucks.

If you have already donated, double it. This is an amazing project. We need to get it made.

Bumped up my pledge. Have any notices been put up at local gun ranges? Perhaps approach some corporate sponsors?

Is this something SAF, CGF or NRA can get behind? $60k seems so far away...

Pledged, Facebooked, and Tweeted. Have you guys tried to get on any conservative radio shows? I know Armstrong and Getty are pro gun, and I know that Dennis Miller is in the industry and has a conservative radio show. I wish I knew how to get you more exposure.

I sent them a text linking to the kickstarter website, a week or so ago.

I just tweeted it at them, and mentioned it in a comment over at Sipsey St. As well. It really is all about exposure.

Wha? Moi?

(there were cigars, too)

Just in case, people get the wrong idea, much of what's done at GRPC is networking. And networking involves socializing. And somehow, whisky often worms its way into the equation.

Please note that when CGF Directors attend events like this, we do it with our own money. CGF Funds aren't used to get us here, pay for our hotels, our meals or our beverages.

MrEd knows this - but others might not.

I would say so. But gun manufacturers and the NRA in the view of the uninformed are the devil. Forget that it's 4 million-plus American members that gives the NRA its power.

Thank you all for your input and willingness to spread the word about the film and Kickstarter.

We've raised $2,500 in the past nine hours and are closing in on our 2nd highest grossing day at $2,900. If we all keep pushing, doubling and getting our friends to pledge, we can reach our goal.

Remember, the Kickstarter campaign closes Thursday night!

T minus 3

Yesterday was a pivotal day for our campaign. Many of you took up our call to "double" your pledge and have a friend "match" your pledge. The result was a $3,500 increase toward our goal. Please help us continue this trend and reach out to others that want to see a film about the 2nd Amendment and public safety in America.

Double and match!

I will double again and pray for a miracle.

Just caught wind of this on YouTube... worth a look as we should all remember there are many out there walking the walk to do their part to secure freedom and liberty and they are doing it in the line of fire.

We can certainly do our little part and supporting this documentary, Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire, as it is as important a statement on freedom, civil rights and liberty as it gets.

Almost at $33k, this might just happen at the rate pledges are coming in!

It went up $185 in the past 5 minutes!

And on that note, we're officially past the halfway mark to our goal!

I just did some quick math.

If we got $500 per hour from now on, we'll hit our goal with a few hours to spare!

I mean, we just got almost $1,000 in the past hour alone!

We might just make it in time!
