    Here are some old pics of me. They get newer as they progress. I left the rest of my pics in Mountain Home, Arkansas. I know the District Attourny Ron Kincaid, Prosecuting Attourny Emily Reed, Judge Dan Hall and about 80% of the Baxter County Sheriff's office I know very well and are good friends with them. I taught NJROTC rifle team at Mountain Home High School which is now called Mountain Home Academy. If you want to verify that, get in touch with Commader Toole or Master Chief Howe.

    I'd post my resume but I am sure people would still doubt me.
    I am working on my fourth degree in International Business and a minor in german at ASU. I don't know how to verify that online without giving too much of my personal info out but here is a photo of my last graduation:

    I used to be a member of Twin Lakes Gun Club. Here is their website: http://www.twinlakesgunclub.com/
    Be sure to check out the "Monthly Schedule" on that website because you then can understand how I got to shoot so many type of competitions.
    I am a lifetime member of the ATA as well, like I have said before I love trapshooting! I earned that lifetime membership at Lynn Creek Missouri in (i think) 1997

    I stand by it, I am a big guy, I am German, Welsh and a little native american. I grew up on a farm (like I said) and here are some pics of one of those farms:
    I grew up doing a lot of farm work, ate steaks every day and hunted as much as possible. I have many more pictures of me at the farm but they are in Mountain Home, but like the pictures I will soon have of me measured out: stay tuned.

    Here is a very old picture that is grainy of my Glock, Makarov and Ruger Mark 1 (plus a few sweet knives):
    And just like the farm pictures stay tuned because I will take more pics of my guns.

    This christmas I shall be getting a new digital camera and in august (maybe May) I am going to get a digital videocamera and will gladly prove the things I have said in here on video and post them on youtube.com
    I am sorry that I seem so incredible, but please give me the benifit of the doubt as I honestly try to prove what I have said. I am not military, ex-military or LEO and I never claimed that I was. All I ever claimed was that I am an avid lover of shooting guns, among other things. Hekkenschutze is a nickname my grandfather gave me, it means sniper in German.

    I am not some "web ninja" and I honestly hope no one sees this post as confrontational. I do not mean it that way at all. My goal of this post is to calm things down and to try to be forthcoming since some see me a withdrawn.

    Can there be a new start?

    May I suggest the "This is who I am, take it or leave it" appraoch.
    You know, I tried that "take it or leave it" approach and the admins threatened to kick me off this forum because other users flamed me in answers to my questions and flammed me for who I say I am and what I say I can do.

    Honest to God I am not trying to impress anyone, but I am answering those who doubt me. You see, if I ingore them they flame me, if I respond admins threaten me and this way (the honest, open and truthful approach) is the only way I can redeem my credibility.

    My pictures are not hijacked, I can assure you of this. I will soon take more pictures of my guns as I hold them in my hands. The picture with my guns in there I have claimed from the get go.

    I did do what you said do, I did say that I want to contribute to this forum as much as I can and to learn as much as I can. Hence my questions and responses to posts that end up with flammers attacking me.

    you do have a good point and I do wish that I could berrate them with a sully "I don't have to impress you!" But in truth, again, I am not trying to impress anyone, right now it is all I can do to prove myself truthful.

    I personally think there are some people here who feel threatened by who I am and what I have done and don't want to believe it. No threats here guys! :) But I am going to vendicate myself from you flammers out there

    Honestly, you don't need to feel like you have to validate yourself, everything you've done, or who you are. I don't. I am who I am, I know who I am, and if people can't understand it or don't want to know me, nuts to 'em.

    As one of my old NCOs used to say, "**** 'em if they can't take a joke."

    Oh, and I find this to be rather apropos:


    "HEY, YOU KIDS! GET OFF MY LAWN!"

    Since you are translating, I forgot to add the umlaut to the "u" in Hekkenschutze

    Es tut mir leid, hier: Hekkenschütze
    translate that ;)
    Hekken literally means "bush" and "schutzen" means protection but "schütze" means shooter. Germans put two words together to describe things rather than making brand new words up. Although this mannor has changed in the past 10-15 years.

    Nate, I do know who I am, I am proud of who I am, what I've done and what I can do. I am only 23! I feel accomplished and no one will take take from me, especially on this forum
    Thing is, I can't say nuts to the admins or the flammers without the flammers flamming MORE and then admins get mad at me.

    At any rate, I am going to start reporting flammers since their existance on my threads threatens my existance on this forum.

    That did it!

    As far as the perceived flamers - just let dead dogs lie, and start anew. You don't always have to be right, and you really don't have to prove what you have, where you got it, who you know, etc. To be honest, I (and probably a few others) don't care. On the same token, I don't expect anyone to give a rat's ass about what I've accomplished or what I'm packing, etc.

    OTOH, yes, what you've accomplished in your life thus far is indeed worthy of admiration. I hope, and expect, that you will keep it up.

    Just understand that there's a VERY fine line between healthy confidence and pride and an overestimation of one's skills. For a forum such as this, where we discuss means of protecting our lives if such an occasion ever arises, this overconfidence may very well prove deadly, and that's exactly what we're trying to avoid.

    So, let's not beat the horse anymore. "He's dead, Jim."

    OK...This is (I think) the first time I've ever closed a Member Introduction.

    Everybody has had a long enough time to offer up a Welcome to this particular forum member.

    I do not want a Welcome Thread to turn into a "back & forth" flame fest as it's not good for the overall CombatCarry image.

    In case anyone has missed the opportunity...then I'll speak for them: ~ "Welcome to the Member" ~ and this thread is now officially closed.
