Gunkid/Hardin/Cando (different names he posted under) was a ninja-jedi-tactical-all knowing/all seeing master of all things tactical.
He would react violently to any posts that disagreed with his.
He was busted for some kind of stupid crime (I forget what) but he turned out to be a fifty-something nobody.
Apparently, he got his kicks playing Rambo on various forums.
As far as worrying about bad guys learning how to be bad guys from this forum, I can't get too concerned. I think Ayoob talked about something similar when defending why he wrote "In the Gravest Extreme".
Some people accused him of writing a book that would help the bad guys.
His response was that if the bad guys were smart enough to read his book, they would have already read various police procedure manuals.
The bottom line is that if the bad guy wants to find info, he will.

LOL! What a bonehead. One more question...how did it come to be known who he is, and about his arrest?
I kinda wish he was still here, sounds like he'd be fun to mess with.

John Melvin Davis, 53, was arrested June 19 outside a trailer home at 12101 Village Dr. in Noble.
Instead of trying to outlaw guns to stop crime they ought to outlaw trailers....seems like it's where most of them live.

He went by the name Hardin, Gunkid, Andy, Cando, and several other aliases on various gunboards.

He turned to selling drugs to finance his gun habit. He was quite the vocal proponent of hard drugs and was proud of his ingenuity in selling them.
He wrote a book (yes guys, it did get written; it was for sale on another forum) about how to make suppressors for firearms. Turns out most of his designs were barely functional.
He escaped from prison once, or so he claimed, and lived in an old rusted out pickup in the woods around Vincennes IN while on the lam. As I understand it he also used this pickup to manufacture meth. (Personal note: I was in college about the same time he was freed from prison - the days of the old Shooters.com site. We were in close proximity to eachother and I went to ground real fast.) You just didn't go into the woods in that area without a local person who knew the area.
He talked about walking around down with his hands stuffed into his pockets with his right one holding a .22 handgun.
According to him the best defensive position was on your back, firing .22 rounds as fast as you could, while delivering bicycle kicks to the adversary. I never learned how not to hit my legs, myself.
He didn't have a driver's license and another board began talking about the "assault wheelbarrow" he supposedly had to carry around all his stuff.
On ArmsLocker (IIRC) forums he once stated that they would eventually "worship him as a god" because of his book. Whichever board it was, I left at that point because they didn't intend to do anything about his presence.
He can currently be found at http://www.oklahomacounty.org/cosher...N_ID=200098559 . It has his picture and details such as his booking number and vitals.
Hope this has been enlightening.

It was Joshua, Thanks! I just love guys like this, they are good entertainment. I'm still wandering how his true self was discovered, outside of being a obvious poser.

this should bring back memories...
I remembered seeing this several months ago. It took me a while to find it again. Yup, he's one of a kind.

Ha! It depends on your definition of BG. Your's is from a legal standpoint. My definition of a BG starts with the Brady folks although it does include the obvious "rocks".
