I would describe myself as a highly trained and experienced (ex military) weapons specialist / enthusiast. I'm not a gun nut or a survivalist. However I do have friends that are. I don't believe in conspiracies or believe the country will fall apart- in my life time anyway. Yet I'm prepared because it is better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. I'm not religious yet I respect those that are. Politically I'm a moderate and think both parties have something to offer, and plenty to be nervous about. I keep my weapons and myself secure and operational at all times. In order to maintain my skill sets I shoot regularly. Thanks for allowing me to join, I hope I can contribute something of value.
