    I had hoped my daughter might form a pistol club at her school, and I designed this as their patch. Never happened, but I liked the patch. The name, of course, stems from Robert Heinlein's, "An armed society is a polite society."

    It's a picture of me. I'm a muppet in real life.
    I haven’t heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.

    Realized my old profile picture everywhere didn't include my new favorite hat. Snapped pic with the front camera on my phone. The rest is history.

    I am in the army and my family comes from Greece and Italy. So when I found a picture of a modern soldier and a roman era soldier I thought it was very fitting.

    An "action" photo of me at a regular steel match... I just liked the muzzle flash against the night background. I should probably adjust the powder charge in my reloads.

    I change mine from time to time. The current one, I found somewhere on the net. It reminded me of the lost-wandering-misdirection of both our society and our government.
