It has been some time since I have been involved site like this and after reading some of the comments I liked what I read. So I will put myself out there, I came upon this earth in the early 1940s served in the Navy on a sea going greyhound. Spent time in the middle east and all thru the Med, Covered from the North Atlantic to the coast of South America. I was a Deputy Sheriff in the north west,spent time with Burns International Detective Agency. I am in Arizona and now a retired federal officer. I have 7 grandkids, work with block watch, my son served 2 hitches in the army and part of that was in the middle east. I always carry 2 guns, 2 knives and a kubaton. interest are defensive shooting and tactics,security. At this point I am very old and grouchy and work out 4 days a week. I have beat cancer, beatings from a bumper jack and a monster heart attack that I was not expected to make it thru the night then a quad plus had already lost thirty % of each arm. There is nothing I would not do to protect my family or defend the innocent and I will not let some one disgrace our flag in front of me. well I stood on this soap box long enough
and that is a nickels worth from the shadowwalker
That's a mighty heavy nickel, dear sir!
