I don't take myself too seriously. I'm not professionally trained, I'm not ex-military, and I don't fool myself into giving self-defense "advice." I have opinions, and sometimes the opinions are well thought out, and sometimes they are not. If you read my posts, you'll be able to tell which ones are which.
Hence the revolver with a minor design flaw.

Aint much to tell. Two guns that I built. One a short barrelled AK with a Silencer on it, the other a Short barrelled .300 Blackout that I built with a can on it.
That picture is on 50 shirts that I had printed up and gave to the people ordering custom builds from me. Its a black t shirt with the words "guns for the apocaylpse" on it.
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

Photograph I took through the front window of an antique shop in Goergotown, CO. It is a photo of a carved wooden statue that was in the display window. I saw the statue and thought, "Wow! That thing is creepy! I need to take some photographs!" I took this one out of focus so that it had a semi-transparent ghostly look to it in B&W.

I've long had a fascination with The Poor Knights of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon.

My father served at Bougainville and in the Philippines with the 37th Infantry Division. His unit, Co C, 129th Inf Regt, was one of the first to cross the Pasig and enter Manila. My avatar is the 37th ID insignia.

Just an old S&W Model 19 that has been keeping me company for most of 30 years.

I'm not much of a photographer but shadows are my favorite device. My avatar is a self portrait of me and my Springer.
The problem with the world is grown-ups behaving like unsupervised children.
There is a solution but we are not Jedi... not yet.
We have deep thinkers and stinkers in this group that could come up with a solution...

I found this picture at the LOL site. I liked the woman's determined look. It "spoke" to me.
The quote by Susan B. Anthony was just a natural.
The quote by Heinlein is one of my favorites by one of my favorite authors, plus he is a "shirt tale" relation of mine.
A woman must not depend on protection by men. A woman must learn to protect herself.

A armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one has to back it up with his life.

It's from a horror film called "Antichrist" by Lars von Trier. Check out the specific clip below (warning: might be graphic, but probably not):

Just the back window of my truck. The motto and message behind it is one I'll carry with me and live life by until the day they lay me in the ground though.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

I really like my GP 100. Actually been considering changing it, but nothing has caught my eye.

I'm just a world class bird dog that has served my master well. I like riding in the back of pickup trucks, retrieving birds and long walks in the pouring rain while duck hunting. My favorite read is Gun Dog, by Richard A. Wolters.
