Things that fly and things that fire (oh, and cut and bind, too)
Hi everyone. This looks like a really cool forum, and I'm glad I found it.
My name is Jeffrey. I live in south Florida (moved here 9 years ago from Long Island, NY). CWL holder (or whatever you favor calling it); private pilot; skydiver; disc golfer; knot tyer; sometime yoga practitioner.
Those are my primary interests. I favor modern handguns, particularly GLOCK and Heckler & Koch. I also enjoy knives, mostly Spyderco and Benchmade.
My interest in guns, and self defense, began many years ago when I was a kid in the '70s. My brother, nine years my senior, was into knives and BB guns and martial arts and stuff like that, and he turned me on to all of these things. I have not been active in martial arts in quite a while, but I do hope to return to that some day. I don't know where my brother picked up the interest in things martial, but it was possibly from our grandfather, who had served in WWII and retired as a colonel. (He had an inspiring funeral at Arlington National Cemetery back in 1990, I believe it was.) My brother says they used to play spy games around the house when our family would visit in Virginia.
I tend to be sort of prolific on forums like these, with lots to say and plenty of interest in reading what fellow posters have to say, as well.
I'll see you around! :)
