Welcome, dear reader!  I am very happy you’re here.  If you’re reading this though, I want to get something out of the way first: I write the content on this page for me, not for you.  I am obviously happy to share it with you, and if you get something out of it, that’s fantastic.  But I still do this for me.  I genuinely don’t mean to be rude, but that tidbit of knowledge should save a lot of trouble for both of us if you’re the typical, dime-a-million, shitposting idiot found literally everywhere on the Internet.

If you don’t like what you read here, that’s fine.  If you can tell me why you disagree like an adult, that’s great.  If you want to try to show me what a big, badass, keyboard commando you are though, I’m going to tell you right now not to bother because your comments will be filtered straight to File 13 without me or anyone else ever seeing it.

With that said…

Who am I?

Ever since I was almost Internet famous for about two-and-a-half seconds and was a successful Second Amendment lobbyist, people have been asking me some variation of that question.  Were I to answer as honestly and plainly as possible, the answer would be: I’m just a regular guy; a citizen of the United States and a proud Iowan.

What could be more important that?

The Short Version

I’m a Republican activist, and my greatest claim to fame is that I am a former successful Second Amendment lobbyist, and I played a prominent part in taking Iowa from the bottom of the heap with respect to Second Amendment rights in America, to somewhere at the top.  I also was a key player in the process to amend the Iowa Constitution to include a Right to Keep and Bear arms provision, which it currently and unfortunately lacks.

If your interest in me is firearms related, then you may appreciate that I am and have been a writer for various firearms and firearms industry publications, a certified shooting instructor, a certified armorer for several firearms, and a sometimes gunsmith with a particular interest in antique and archaic firearms.
