Since the earliest days of rocks and sticks, males have been trying to find better ways to launch projectiles.
In the male tradition of projectile enthusiasts, I am a gun collector.  I have an interest in small, concealable weapons, particularly pre-war semi-automatic pistols, though I don’t necessarily restrict my collecting to them.  I collect pretty much anything that interests me. 

Born and raised in Texas, I enjoy launching projectiles, taking projectile launchers apart and putting them back together, trying to understanding how their mechanisms work, making holsters for them, etc. 

I advocate responsible gun use.  I abide by the laws of Texas and the United States, and I try to set an example to others for responsible handling of firearms.

I don’t write to justify myself or to advocate the use of guns, but to share my knowledge and interests with like-minded enthusiasts.  I hope someone out there finds this information useful.
