    Boston born and bred

    Hey there everyone

    My name is Matt and I grew up in the land of beans, brown bread, and "chowdah". I love New England because I'm a history buff. (There's lots of it here) I haven't owned a gun for very long, and though I have fired one before now, I am far from anywhere near the level of skill where I would call myself "proficient". I stumbled onto these forums by accident on one of my online quests for firearm lore, and I have to say I am pretty impressed with the amount of knowledge I've been reading in all the threads.

    As far as me personally, I am an artist at heart, both in the classical sense as well as the martial. I guess you could say I am kind of a warrior poet so to speak. I am Native American (1/2 on my fathers side), and a European mutt (English, Scottish, Irish, German, and Russian) from my mother. I'm a tech geek too since I build and configure computers for fun. ( I got tired of paying other people to do it for me)

    I want to thank all the people that have helped me already, and apologize for not introducing myself before hand.

    Great to have you aboard from a fellow citizen of the commonwealth. Enjoy our archaic, uninterpretable, and draconian gun laws.

    I have studied various martial arts in the past. Most of my life actually. My current passion though is Krav Maga and Haganah. Been doing that for a few years now. I had to stop for about a year to heal up from a muscle tear in my lower back, but I'm not giving up sine I am only one belt from black. I've had the pleasure of attending several classes and events with Mike Lee Kanarek who is actually my instructors instructor. I've been pretty blessed with access to some pretty good schools in my area.

    Dear lord, don't get me started on the gun legislation in Massachusetts. There's a reason people call us Massholes and it starts from the top down.
