About me

Gender MALE
Occupation I'm as honest as a retired governemnt man can be.
Location A Not So Secret Location In The Not So Free World, New York, United States
Introduction I am a family man, husband and father of two great kids - now adults. I am also a U.S. Citizen and supporter of the Constitution of the United States of America. To that end, I vote and I am a firearms enthusiast. I am also a retired federal agent and am proud of never violating anyone's rights in 32 years as an LEO and not ever having even one such complaint filed against me. In retirement I am loving every day being Staurday. I am certified as an NRA Law Enforcement Firearms Instructor and am a certified Glock Armorer. I offer free firearms instruction to anyone who can legally posses a firearm, including handgun (only where legal), rifle and shotgun (contact me, for details, via email if interested). I enjoy shooting, hunting, fishing, herp keeping and breeding, hiking, blogging, good biers and ales and some fine hard spirits now and then. Besides all that, I am a survivor of stage 4 cancer and am living the second chance we all often hope we could get. It is not much different than the first chance and I am not much different either except maybe more candid than before if you can imagine that.
Interests Adventure, Firearms and Shooting, Herps, Hunting and Fishing, Travel, U.S. and World Events, Gardening, Sci-Fi, Fine Ales and Beers.
Favorite Movies Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, King Kong (the original), The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Macao, The Maltese Falcon, The Caine Mutiny, The Thin Man (all of The Thin Man movies are great), Gunga Din, North By Northwest, Charade, The Man Who Would Be King, Outland, Pulp Fiction, No Country For Old Men, True Grit, Young Frankenstein, Dr. Strangelove, Zulu (one of the best movies ever to portray courage over and above and as it pretty much really happened), any of The Resident Evil movies, From Dusk Till Dawn, The Thing From Another World (the original), Them, The Day The Earth Stood Still (the original, the remake sucked), Blade Runner, and finally, one of the best sci-fi, action/adventure/comedies of all time: The Fifth Element.
Favorite Music Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Judy Garland, God Bless America by Kate Smith, Hurt by Johnny Cash, The Highwayman by the Highwaymen (Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Chris Kristofferson), Ripple and Uncle John's Band by the Grateful Dead ("God damn, well I declare, have you seen the like? Their walls are built of cannonballs, their motto is 'Don't Tread on me...'".), Pink Floyd, Stevie Nicks, Blondie, The Kinks, Traffic, Gordon Lightfoot, Janis Joplin, Hot Tuna, Joan Osborne, Jefferson Airplane, Black Sabbath by Black Sabbath (best album ever)...
Favorite Books Man-Eaters of Kumaon (it still makes me want to visit the India of Corbett and it is the best work of non-fiction / biogrphy / adventure I have ever read), The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, The Hobbit, The Razor's Edge, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, Snakes The Keeper and The Kept, Lost Horizon, and almost any literary work by Edgar Allan Poe (but especially his detective stories).
