Richard here. A 22y/o outta the D/FW area since about 93, born in IL. I'm an outta work musician and loan officer whose current profession is putting boxes that are too heavy for him up on shelves to high at Target; to late in the evening.
Joined up here on recommendation of a current member that might pop in to harass me but as for now shall not be named.
No gun preferences really. Just here to learn. I'm a sponge and I've only got a handful of people to learn from that I know personally that I trust and may or may not trust me as well.
I've got my fingers in all sorts of learned trades be it auto refinishing/repair, metal fabrication/welding, wood working, basic glass blowing, and last but not least music. I also have a background in Wrestling, Isshinryu, BJJ, JKD, and Kali. Some of that background lighter in some places moreso than others.
I'm a constitutionalist although my political views are skewed at moment, but up until late last year I was anti-NWO/Globalism/Military Industiral Complex and all that jive. Part of that paradox is also my strong belief that others that do disagree with my views are more than entitled to and hopefully I can gain greater awareness and foundation in my own from learning about others POV's.......
.......I think we can all agree that if everyone agreed in this country then it would indeed fall apart.....hehehe
I do strongly believe in the 2nd amendment right and believe it not only a right; but an obligation for those morally and emotionally sound enough to carry to do so.
I'm not necessarily religious but I do consider myself a dynamically spiritual individual. I'm in my 4th year at MSIA and have not yet become and initiate nor am I sure that I plan to in the future.
Mostly I live day to day.
A long intro on my behalf. HEHE.
Pleasure to post among yall.

When you accept mediocrity you sow the seeds for future failure.
One should never confuse good fortune with good training.
