Thank you. YOU. I am allowed to do something I feel strongly about, because you and I share the same passion and interest in self-preservation and the tools that go along with that. We walk through the history and development of many fascinating platforms together, and we preserve it for future generations.  We discuss things honestly and openly, cutting through the bull-crap and getting to the root of our discussions. We can call it "Sharing the Craft" or simply "Passing it On" but if we don't document solid information, we stand the chance it will get lost in the multitude of urban legends and internet myths.  Having been intimately involved in the firearms industry for over 25 years, most of that time as an NFA Firearms Manufacturer, there is never a shortage of interesting subject matter. So come with me on this journey to share the truth, create brass rainbows, and  never let an illogical anti-gun argument stand unchallenged.

Wow! That's all I can say when looking back at 2018. The next thing that comes to mind is "Good Riddance".

It started with the social media companies cracking down on content creators, which cost several nights sleep, and in the end, in order to salvage the channel, several videos were deleted and several million hard-earned views, along with them. 

Adding health issues that are coming to the front (I have a knee in final stages of failure before having a total replacement, missing an ACL and MCL, with no cartilage remaining), that made getting around at the end of the year, challenging, at best. With some heavier than normal snowfall, it's made getting anything done, a logistical nightmare.

On a positive note, the Veteran's Bunkhouse is all but completed and was host to some friends as it buttoned up. We even had a chance to spend the night in it once, but are planning on a LOT more use this coming year. If you are new, or just missed the original conversation, if you're a Patron here, we'll work to make accommodations for you if you reach out.

2019 is coming out of the gate a LOT better, and I am hoping to ramp up the content several-fold, over last year. We already have a lot of product coming in for testing and as soon as we can get back in to the test facility things will start to crank up.

As we tickle our first goal here, I want to get back to regular Video Conferences with the members. We tried a few last year, and after working the bugs out, things went pretty well. If you have any ideas for subject matter, or just want to do a Q&A and talk live, instead of through a keyboard, and you have a high-speed internet connection, we'll give it another go.

Thank you all, again. I can't express how honored I am to have such a fantastic family of fellow firearms enthusiasts. I hope 2019 brings a happy and healthy year to you all!
