    Lets all be on the same team

    I made this video at the spur of the moment. Sorry there is about a 15-second section where I accidentally had my finger over the microphone. I hope this will help break through a little of the internet anonymity by seeing that I'm a real person. Since I never formally introduced myself to this forum many months ago, I figure this is a good place to start.



    I also want to point out that through all of the flames we've had around here, never once have I suggested other people that they should do as I do. You can go back and look through the posts if you wish and see that I'm right. Also you will see that I've always maintained a cool head and been respectful of others, even when they are insulting me. I try to keep a higher moral ground than that.

    So that all aside, I hope we can put an end to some of the flaming we've had around here and try to start again.

    First off let me offer you a belated welcome from Virginia.

    I've read quite a few of your post, some I agree with some I don't. That's the nature of life though. After viewing your video I have decided you can't be all bad, after all YOU ARE a cat person. Us cat people have to stick together, we seem to be outnumbered!

    Well, I've got a Mac, and two cats, I carry chambered, and I haven't seen a whole lot of "flames" on DC? I do think it took some guts to put yourself out there and explain your point of view. If it gets too personal, the Mods should step in and calm everyone down before it gets to bad. Don't go away, give us a chance, and we may get it right before too long.

    The cat's a she. That's a box that some ammo was shipped in that she has claimed as her own. She weighs 7 lbs 3 oz and is absolutely fearless. LOL She defends the house against all agressors, especially crickets.

    Our two defend against lizards that keep getting in the house, as well as spiders, and their favorite - mayflies. One of them likes to bring me the little lizards and put them near by feet and meow to make sure I see it. She wants me to see that she caught it and praise her for it. (then I have to go flush it when she's not looking)

    cats or whatever pet you take to; why do you even bring this subject up? but since you seem to want acceptance so desperately, i may point out that as long as you interchange those who disagree with you as being insulted, common ground will be difficult to find.
    Be aware, be deliberate in your actions and be accurate.

    You may wish to carry unchambered but you still carry. We are not that different. Same cause, same right.
    On a lighter note, it is not like you bashed Glock or anything, that would have really done it!

    It's good to finally meet the man behind the posts.

    The look on your wife's face was priceless. My wife would have given the same reaction.

    You've got a beautiful, loving family. Keep them - and yourself - safe.

    His cat - as with many of our pets - is a part of his family. And since the cat was there as he was filming, with the purpose of the video being to give us a glimpse of the man behind the keyboard, why not?

    Besides, it's not like he really was the one who started into the cat stuff. Apparently, we've got quite a lot of cat-lovers in this community (although I'm a dog-guy, myself...I could never have a pet that's smarter than me ).

    ...but since you seem to want acceptance so desperately....
    I don't know that adric22 wants "acceptance," so much as for people to know who the person is that they are interacting with.

    In virtually all of my online communities, I've actually met and made real-life friends. Most of these are local communities of common interest/hobby, but I've actually been lucky enough to, on some occasions, have physically met and shaken hands with "e-friends" from across the nation as well as the globe. Maybe acceptance is what we're all after...after all, we're all part of this community here, right?

    I think the video is rather nice: I'd rather see a video like this than read a "new member welcome" any day.

    Good job on the video, great way to do an "introduction".

    DC is a great forum, be sure to stick around. Any forum can be a tough place sometimes if someone offers a thought or opinion that goes against the grain of the majority. Sometimes things aren't "absolute's".........so be it.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
