    For some time now I've been a little concerned with my choice to use my full name as my username here, but I've let those concerns pass. However, the more I get involved with other activities unrelated to firearms the more I realize how easy it is for people to find out about me due to my name being plastered all over Google (because of this forum). I'm not going to elaborate any further, but I did want to give you guys a heads up :thumbup:

    I highly doubt anyone is going to find anything with this new name of mine :laugh:

    You know, I just now noticed that.
    Good choice, I respect the formality.

    You should have just gone with "Link". By adding the "Mr." now they can rule out looking at females when they want to track you down. :D

    Whoever "they" are. :laugh:

    There's a "missing Link" joke in here somewhere. Give me a minute, I'll find it.

    Yeh, that's so ambiguous. :paranoid:
