    Grady made me do it.

    I wasn't on the forum too long when I changed. I was naive and was actually using my real name. Didn't see an issue with it because I didn't have anything to hide. I forgot how it started, but to make a long story short, Grady posted an excellent reply that made a great deal of sense and surfaced things for which I didn't consider. I had just gotten my M&P45 so I changed my name to what it is currently.

    It worked so well I didn't even recognize you after you changed your name!

    If you hadn't told me what your prior name was, I'd never have known.

    Sometimes anonymity/privacy can be a good thing.

    You know how every little kid wants to be a cowboy at some point in their life. Well I never grew out of it. I grew up on a farm and ranch have always owned horses and cows. Got through college by cowboying on ranches when not in class. On my senior sneak trip in college I got it inked on my arm and thats what everyone calls me.

    Monkeytown is a slang term for Montgomery, AL which is the nearest city to where I live. I starting using that name on a bodybuilding forum 6 years ago and it stuck. I use the same forum name EVERYWHERE. If you've seen it, it's probably me.

    The critter in the avatar was named Farron. He was a great pet, had to put him down a few years ago.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.
