Born in western Nebraska and grew up on a ranch. Started shooting when I was around 8. Handled and shot a variety of firearms over the years, many Rugers, Smith & Wesson, Colt, Winchester, Savage, etc,... and of course Taurus and Beras handuns.
Lived for a number of years in Seattle, WA when I worked for Boeing as a machinist. Had an FFL when I was there and did some sideline work as a pistol smith.
Before moving out to Michigan, I had moved back to Nebraska from Seatte, and was self employed for a time, then worked as a Deputy Sherrif for 8 years. Also worked there for Egging Comany, as a Radial Drill press operator for a while, building various parts for Catepillar Heavy Equipment. Egging Co. was a supplier of nearly 300 parts for various Catepillar machines.
I work in SW Michigan as an Associate Winemaker, near Fennville. Live on 10 acres, isolated enough in the country to let me have a pretty decent shooting range in my back yard.
My personal website, related to shooting is at http://taurus45acp.com which has links for many sites for supplies, and Second Amendment Rights info, as well as NRA-ILA feed. My didgeridoo site is at http://vernsdidj.com both sites work with or wihout the www.
