The faces of THR

So, after looking at some of the pics from the THR gathering, it got me sort of curious as to what the rest of us look like. Call me silly, but I have seen some of these names on here for over a year now, and it would be nice to put a face to some of the names. In that spirit, here is a pic of me after a pheasant hunt a year ago. I am the enormous man on the right, the guy on the left is my roommate and the kid in the middle is my buddy's step-son (who, thanks to my buddy, has become quite a good hunter and bagged his first antelope, elk, and deer this past year). Lets see some of those fearsome mugs! By the way, I look pretty much the same, except I abandoned the beard and stuck to my normal goatee. The beard was something of a mistake....

Why not, its been awhile.

May 31, 2007, 02:25 AM
If you guys haven't figured out what I look like by now, I'm not trying hard enough.


May 31, 2007, 02:31 AM
Ok, I'll play. I really don't have any recent photos that show me well, so I'll post what I have on the hard drive.
First, a pic from 2003:

Doesn't help that much, because my hair is down to the middle of my back now.

And my most recent pic, from Saturday:

May 31, 2007, 02:35 AM
Dang it, I wish I had posed with a cigar and a battle axe. I feel like such a pansy...

May 31, 2007, 02:38 AM
I wish I'd thought of the cigar.....:p

Me during the great Austin snowstorm of this December.

Mind the snowman...they have many tricks...

May 31, 2007, 04:43 AM

Couldn't have hit the plate in that pattern in a month of Sundays if I'd been trying ... sometimes, fate smiles too.



May 31, 2007, 04:45 AM
Nice snowman Ken! (And howdy from one Austinite to another!)

May 31, 2007, 04:46 AM
Appreciate it...took the snow from at least 10 cars to build him up, but it was worth it considering how seldom I get the chance :)

Actually a Houstonian...just finished up my hitch at UT and moved home. Austin was a nice change for a while.

May 31, 2007, 04:57 AM
Me and my better half, on a road trip earlier this year. We were at a red light and very, very tired of being in the car.

May 31, 2007, 05:00 AM

Me and one of my best friends Sarah.

May 31, 2007, 05:07 AM
This was a "few" years ago in a place far away from here.

But I'm still the same on the inside (well, maybe a bit wiser...)

May 31, 2007, 05:25 AM
Sadly I have no snow men, axes, cigars, red haired girls, or anything else cool in my picture.

May 31, 2007, 06:18 AM

May 31, 2007, 06:22 AM
Me and one of my best friends Sarah.
One of your best friends....c'mon, you love her. :neener:

May 31, 2007, 07:26 AM
I know I'm going to regret this...

May 31, 2007, 07:56 AM
Here's one from an outdoor festival we played at last year...

May 31, 2007, 08:25 AM
OK, I'll play (again)... it has been a while. Same old photo, though - it's the only one I have uploaded (or available to me at work) at the moment.

Which reminds me... I need to get back to the range. Too many guns... too little time. (j/k about the "too many guns" part :D )

May 31, 2007, 08:30 AM
Sarah is rite Perty!

She hitched?

This was about a year ago. My baby girl and I.

May 31, 2007, 10:39 AM

Actually, isn't his "capture" in dispute? Anyway, I hope he has been captured. I can't imagine the grief that you would have trying to fly anywhere if that guy is still on the loose! I can hear the customs agents: "Mustafa, if you wanna be called 'Dale' then fine. Now where the %$#@ is the bomb!"

May 31, 2007, 10:44 AM
Here's the mugshot they took for my CCH Instructors ID card...

Rough n Ready Wild Irishman; Jackson is a badly bred mix of IT and whoknowswhat (although it is also possible that he's actually an Italian Spinone, we can't be certain). Both 10 years old and still puppies in their own minds.

Sure thing, I'll post some pics.
Oh and in case anyone is wondering about my age (cough cough, ATF, etc), I know I look young, but I am over 21.

Note, I'm not a LEO (yet) but I wanted to take a pic with a holster on, so I that's why I took that one about a month ago.

2. My brother and I at a mens retreat near where my father is buried at Ft. Mitchell. He used to go with us and we miss him.

I don't have a single gun pic with me in it. I will have to remedy that. :)

I'm getting my central air replaced, so I'm on the laptop - can't get to my good pics. Here's one from christmas I happened to have on photobucket.

Better ones to come.

Noticed it often. Bearded folk tend to be more gun-friendly, on average, than the non-bearded.

Shh... It was all a scam. I'm doing wet work in South America for very powerful men who know who they’ll need when the balloon goes up.

June 1, 2007, 10:37 AM
me with No4 enfield, which fell pray to my "inordinate amount of handload development and it still shoots lousy, it's sell/trade fodder" rule.

the mediocre accuracy, combined with the expense, time etc to get the gun set up "right" according to my needs/wants (replace the two position rear sight with a Micrometer type, replace original long length [had "L" mark at toe] butt stock with standard length unit, then strip/clean and re-oil the stock) just didn't seem a worthwhile project

Here's a couple pics of me:

From a couple years ago.

A little more recent photo with my new M1 Garand the hubby got me for my birthday/wedding anniversary/christmas/Yule present :D

Speaking of hubby, here's Cpl Nobbs on vacation:

June 1, 2007, 01:02 PM
wow. a number of you folks look...*gasp* normal. :)

Here's me with my then girlfriend, now wife. I've posted this one before.

I love this thread. And I agree that we all look....normal. Lots of good people here, and I am glad that I am part of this community.

Here I am, doing guy things: On a bike and ironing.

June 1, 2007, 01:20 PM
Reprising my role from Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, this is me on the set of the first movie I was Exec for. This picture is, oh, probably 5 years old.


Edit: I love the irony of my post appearing directly beneath El Barto's post about how we all look "Normal". ;)

Guess I'll play--just remember the camera adds like what, 30 lbs?

Me loading mags for friend that wanted to go shooting for their first time--on their anniversary...

Lots of truth to that. The gentleman who's cabin we stayed in had just shot a big cat in his out building earlier in the summer. He made sure to let us know and asked if I'd be bringing "anything" along.

Here's the moose we bumped into along the hike.


June 1, 2007, 02:54 PM
arthurcw, you beat me to it. As per the last part of post #5 of this thread:

We have hit an High Road inevitability. 59 more to go…

June 1, 2007, 03:08 PM
Someone with the technical knowledge should take all the photos here and create a photo library so we could look up the "screen name" of a person and acquaint ourselves with what the person looks like. Just an idea. I have found this thread very, very interesting. My, what a varied lot we are and yet unified in the Second Amendment. That was a great idea to start this thread TimboKhan. Thanks.

cbsbyte, I love that T-shirt (post #146). I want one!

Here's one of the most recent ones of me. Sorry it'll only be an attachment. I'm too lazy to put it on the web.

Here's one with the cradle for our baby one the way.

I don't have many older ones right with me. So you'll just have to settle for the funny shaped ones.


I'm one for no facial hair and no fishing and no dogs (I'm allergic to seafood and dogs).

June 1, 2007, 03:48 PM
only pic I have handy...

June 1, 2007, 03:50 PM

June 1, 2007, 03:56 PM
So from this can we assume that most bass players with facial hair own guns?

June 1, 2007, 04:04 PM
I'm the human.

And heres the requisite facial hair shot (Though in all fairness i easily lose any contest compared to some of you)

June 1, 2007, 04:06 PM
Gotta agree with glajlu, TimboKahn: thanks. This IS a good idea.

For me, it's already been a very thought-provoking experience to see who's on the road. We seem a totally interesting bunch with a great diversity of age, ethnicities, body types and I suspect equally diverse backgrounds, philosophies, professions, etc.

Yet here we are together on this cyber-road, sharing a strong interest in, appreciation of, and respect for guns.

So far, I recognize the user names of a relatively small percentage (maybe 20%) of those posting images (because I've been in threads with them in the past), and look forward to seeing images of more of those that I do know.

But it's interesting that seeing a person in here for the first time makes me instantly feel like, "Wow, I'd like to know more about this person. Let me check their other posts to learn more about who they are, what they think, what they shoot (both guns and targets)."

And I suspect, for some reason, that by us seeing each other as people could - just could - increase our level of mutual respect when we're hanging out in other threads, especially some of those that are say ...
... <ahem> a bit politically and/or philosophically <ahem> shRILL. <ahem> :D

I have as much interest in seeing older pics of people as current ones.
Kind of a photo album, of "here's where we've been".

I've attached three of me from the past.

1) circa 1950's with two cousins. That's me on the right.
(<jk> I was packing a BB pistol in an IWB </jk>)

2) just out of high school on a graduation trip to New Orleans.

3) on the way to becoming a hippie (pre-beard).
(I'm no longer a hippie, but I went through that phase ...)

You guys are welcome. I just like putting faces to names is all.

By the way Gus, I don't know why your against beards so much. You would look very nice with one!:neener:

June 1, 2007, 04:40 PM
Nice to see the faces at THR. We're a mixed crew, no doubt.

Funny, but I just realized I have no pictures of me armed. Have to get busy on that. Here are a few of me:

- Whale Watching off of Maine
- Dog Sledding in Canada
- Hitch hiking back to Shanghai in a Police Cruiser from Hangzhou, P.R.C. with my son Josh
- Temple Square in Nanjing, P.R.C. with my son Josh and my staff, Kitty.

Haven't talked to Crystal for a couple months I'm a slacker. But last I heard, Shane was progressing nicely. Crystal had to get a new job after Maxtor closed the doors, and now she has a 45 minute commute, which she hates.

TimboKhan-I make my hubby shave. Of course he doesn't have much there anyway. He's a graphic designer and could probably draw one on me. :rolleyes::uhoh:

It's good to see everyone. And talk to y'all again. It's been a while.

"Since I started the thread and most of you probably already forgot how good looking I am, here is one of me and my friend Anna at our graduation on May 12th of this year. Anna is pretty hot and she shoots, but unfortunately, her boyfriend is a UFC fighter. So, let me be clear: She is my FRIEND."

seriously?? who?? and does he fight for the UFC or another Org' [as that seems to be the all encompassing term for MMA fighter these days "oh yeah thats my friend jimbo he does that UFC stuff"]

This picture was taken on April 30, 2007. I flew my final mission as a C-130 loadmaster in the morning and retired that afternoon. The T-shirt I'm holding was worn that morning in honor of those who never came home. I got it at the JPAC ops office at U-Tapao, Thailand while on a repat mission to Viet Nam to bring home some remains. You can't tell, but it's all wet, the result of getting my traditional fini flight hosing down!

Big Calhoun, you don't have a .500 S&W in an ankle holster, do you?

Ueeerrrrmmmm, possibly.

I guess I could pull that off as baggy as some of my jeans are. Gotta look into that. :cool:

arthurcw, you beat me to it. As per the last part of post #5 of this thread:

June 1, 2007, 08:41 PM
I cannot remember if this one was taken last year or the year before. It is me and the wife. It was the first, and last time, to date, that she ever went shooting. As you can see, my wife has extremely little to absolutely no facial hair, maybe that explains why she is not into shooting. As for me, the beard is gone, but not the stache.

All the best,
Glenn B

June 1, 2007, 08:42 PM
Hey, Kevin,

What the heck were you shooting, napalm?
I wanna know what the heck shotgunkevin was shooting and how it set fire to a tree!!!!

Oh....and WHERE CAN I GET ONE??!!!

Not napalm, Tannerite!! Tannerite in cars, Tannerite in washing machines, Tannerite in aircraft!! And the best part is, I wasn't on the fire-stomping crew!! :evil:

Guy B. Meredith - My GOD, man! The beard, hair, general posture and body build, clothing, and even what I can see of your face in that photo could have easily made you a body double for my dad circa 1977 (through 1981 or so).

If I might ask, what is your ancestory? My dad is 1/2 Irish and 1/2 Sicilian... here's a recent photo of him this past Christmas with my son:

Here's my son, me, and my good buddy; this was taken last Thanksgiving after he and I had spent the evening drinking and eating red meat :P (Note: I'm the guy in the middle - at 6'2". My friend is a giant.)

June 3, 2007, 01:38 AM
Thats funny CNY, because I was waiting for just that. I knew somebody was going to come out with a story like that from this thread. A long lost friend or sibling, having spoken on THR never knowing who you were posting with. It HAD to happen. Glad to hear it by the way.

Oh and.. Yeah yeah, I know, I haven't posted a pic yet. I'll get to it eventually.. probably monday.
