    Sorry about your eye. It is a cool name. just FYI in cards a one eyed jack is either the jack of spades or the jack of hearts because they are shown in profile which only show one eye instead of the others showing both. Poker players like to make up names like that. (don't even ask me how I know that stuff)

    I also like #3s and I have all but the 30-40 Krag which I did have until I sold it to Typecaster. One day I will get another.

    My favorite #1 (at the moment) is a HP commemorative chambered in 357 Mag. My favorite #3 (at the moment) is one which started life as a .223 that has been rebarreled in .22 TCM.

    Good Stuff!

    On the show "Frazier" there was an episode where they had a play, a lady friend had to yell out "Look out he has a gun!" except that she had dyslexia and said nug for gun, from then on my wife would ask if I had my nug when we went out so if anyone heard they wouldn't know what she was talking about.
    I'm a gunnut so it became that backwards, tunnug.

    David is my name and I shoot an STI Edge which STI calls a 2011 design. It’s a double stack pistol based on the 1911. It’s the gun in my avatar.

    Mal Paso, I had noticed that another Carmel resident had done well with the moniker.

    Nueces, all Texas residents know it’s pronounced “new-aces.” I at least learned that much in 4 years of Spanish classes, taken in the Great State of Texas. That “e” in Espanol is always pronounced like a “long a.”

    When I was young, I would do so many dangerous things.
    Never got badly hurt. Just lucky.
    Grandma always used to say "abunai" when hearing what I've been up to.
    As I got older, and smarter (?), I stopped doing dangerous stuff.
    Some say I stopped doing fun stuff.
    Only dangerous thing I do these days, is drive.
    Abunai means dangerous in Japanese.
    I just added the Too.

    Not getting into a “contest” over it. Pronunciation in Spanish is very consistent and straightforward.

    When I was asked to pick a handle here. It was my first time & I didn't even know what a handle was. My email address was just my name. I didn't give it too much thought but I had just buried my 20 year old cat named midnight so midnight it was.

    Glaciers was my email address since 1993 until the local provider screwed me out of it, so I got a different address now, but still has glaciers in it. I spent a lot of time in Prince William Sound up in the north end and west side which has lots of tide water glaciers. Great place to shrimp and just float around, so that's where it started I guess.

    Got mine because my main hobby has been metal detecting for 25 years. My yellow lab at the time would dig the holes if I told him to.

    This is the first form I joined and had no idea what to use as my handle. There are plenty of Bill's on here and I have been called Wild Bill most of my life. Added the 7 cause I like that number.
    Panman I also drove pans, bull dozers, and front end loaders when I was in the Army and for a little while after I got out.

    I use "Mr_Sheesh" as I had a girlfriend who didn't like swearing, OK, so I changed over to sheeshing things instead if swearing. Seemed to turn out that she wanted me just to have no opinion and be a good little slave, basically, so that didn't end too well for her, but I kept the habit. It more matches my sense of humor anyways; I'm not sarcastic very often (unless shown an extreme example of total stupidity) but to like to tease folks, so I'm not much of a Don Rickles fan, but like enjoying life. Humor definitely helps us survive

    The first pistol I purchased when I can to Tennessee was a North American arms 22, lil ol pocket pistol. From there I bought any gun that was a good deal ( cheep). I really liked Glocks and had a couple but when the compact glock 45 came out it was my favorite glock at the time. When talking about guns at work, I always said I liked my G30 the best !
    So myg30 was my screen name and use it on all the firearms forums Im on.
    I also like to sign with my first name Mike !

    Enjoy this reading here too, Mike
