Let's see if I'm able to post here from my phone. (Sprint Mogul)

Howdy, y'all. For the folks who don't know me, I'm a professional computer geek (NOC Operator, to be specific) for a major hospital system in the New Orleans area. I'm also a sci-fi fan, and play pen-and-paper role playing games, in addition to being a gun nut & a military equipment otaku.

I'm princewally, a minor deity in Minnesota.

I'm a programmer by hobby and vocation. I used to play PnP games, but that's long gone, due to 3 kids(8, almost 2, and 8 weeks) and a wife who likes my attention on occasion.

I also teach carry permit classes in Minnesota.

I read obsessively, blog occasionally, and overdo my Halloween decorations. I'm already behind schedule there.

It is I, CC! Spammers tremble before me! I like doing firearms experiments and sharing them on the internet.

I am a lowly coder by trade, and a gun nut by choice. My residence is in Ft. Worth, Texas, and I am looking forward to enjoying the new site. I blog occasionally, and read quite a few regularly as well.

Rumpshot here.

I talk to airplanes for a living. Working on my 40th year of that nonsense. Even got myself fired by the President of the US of A once upon a time.

My residence is North Central Arizona, but I work in West Phoenix (and keep a house there too).

My hobby list is pretty close to the first post above. Most recent accomplishments include: upgrading my Ham Radio license to General Class, getting current with my Private Pilot's license, and spoiling my Grandson (soon to be known as my first grandson as he will be a big brother with a little brother). My Phoenix home doesn't look like it but, I am a Maricopa County Master Gardener. My other home on the other hand went from a bare lot to over 200 trees, 3 vegetable gardens, 4 flower gardens with other flower beds, an orchard, a berry patch with grape vines, raspberry bushes, currant bushes, Rhubarb, Artichokes, and Asparagus. I like to bake and have a "horno" mud oven that is in the third year of construction.

AND I host the Rumpshot's Revenge annual event!

I'm Rod on the internet but you can call me.................................................Rod.


I'm a double dipper, retired from the Army and from teaching. I collect interesting guns, try to make reloads that blow up in my hand, and make people jealous when I mention Krags. Wife and I live in El Paso and folks who contact us are welcome to stop over and visit the madhouse. We also travel a lot, next big trip is a cruise from Copenhagen, to Dover, Dublin, Belfast, Iceland, Greenland, Newfoundland, New York City, and Fort Lauderdale. Oh yeah, my wife may post in here as Bast, don't steal her name, she's a redhead disguised as a blond.

Greetings to everyone! My name's Ben, random internet wanderer, part-time firearm instructor, and nerdcore geek by choice.

I am currently unemployed and looking for work in the Scottsdale area. I graduated from Northern Arizona University with a B.A. in Religious Studies. (Don't look at me like that... Back then I had no idea how hard getting a decent job can be when you've got a diploma that screams "I iz uh hippie!")

My hobbies include collecting WAY too much sci-fi and fantasy literature, studying religion and history, wargaming, RPGs, board and card games, writing bad fiction, target shooting, appreciating good cooking, and seeking out weird or interesting places.

If anyone remembers Mandall Shooting Supplies that ran up until 2004 in Scottsdale, that was where I met Chris. Nothing can do more to create both a passionate love and screaming hatred of the firearms world then working in a gun store operated by one's own grandparents. If I can remember to, I'll post up some bizarre stories of life on the other side of the counter.
