Good morning, I follow a small handful of forums but just recently started following this one. I grew up on a farm in Idaho. Started shooting very young, it's part of the culture there. I also started martial arts training very young, and I've stuck with both through the years. Now I live in western Washington. Desk job during the day, own/operate a martial arts school in my off hours. I'm also an instructor with a large firearms organization...I'm on the road a fair amount of the year assisting other instructors, and teach a few of my own here in the Northwest. Aside from that, my interests are providing a living for my family, riding motorcycles, writing articles, and appreciating a fine merlot or single malt. Life is good.
