First gun I bought with my own money. Second hand .54 cal T/C Renegade. Put a lot of Michigan venison in the freezer. Still own it of course.
Borrowed from my late father, he was a truck driver and his handle was Joker, joker was taken so I added the 1. All that and I'm a smartass, got that from my dad also.

Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws... serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man - Cesare Beccaria

Had just bought the truck I always wanted (F350, extended cab, diesel, dually, 4X4) and site wouldn't the name I use on other boards
Mine is the name of a D&D character I had some 25 years ago. The full name is Archeress Riana, but I'm too lazy to type that every time I log in, so it's just Riana.
I restored my Dad's old 1963 VW Bug that he bought in 1966 (second owner). My parents brought me home from the hospital in that car. During the 3 year full restoration to show car condition, the guys at the bodyshop took over a year to do their thing. I'd stop by and check on the progress and bring more parts (I learned the hard way to only bring parts as they needed them) and they could never remember my name. They'd just all yell, "It's the Bug Dude" and they all called me that when they saw me in town. Now that I own two Vintage Volkswagen Bugs, that's what everyone calls me. The Bug Dude. Been using BugDude online for 10+ years.

No real story; I'm a simple former Marine and waaaaaaayyyy back when in 1995 when I worked for Bell Atlantic and we we installing the first trial xDSL lines anywhere, I happened to qualify for one and I had about 30 unexpected seconds to pick a name for email/account in the install process, and this was what I thought of at the time.
I've been Crucible in email and on most of my online accounts in the 15 years (!?!) since.
