or whatever that big-word-usin' Gomez fella said! I followed him here, so you can blame him.
A bit about me...well, lemme see...lifelong interest in martial arts, preparedness and firearms. To explore those interests, I've taken 15 years of martial arts of various kinds (tae kwon do, hapkido, kempo, wrestling, boxing, kung fu, escrima, etc.), taught tai chi and kung fu for a few years, been a boy scout and later an asst. scoutmaster, went on several week-long survival trips (with the 4th coming up this June), did some NRA smallbore competition as a teen, attended several classes with Southnarc, Surgical Speed Shooting with Andy & Paul, attended 1 IDPA match thus far (came in dead last...go me! :banana: ) and headed up a small, Atlanta-based combatives group for about 6 months or so, with the group probably starting up again soon.
