    I received this from a member on my boards (John in AR) and thought I'd share with the THR community for obvious reasons. There are a lot of lessons to be learned from this, and I despite my feelings on convicted felons being permanently stripped of their rights, Gunkid was a repeat felon and a danger to himself and anyone dumb enough to actually listen to him. I'm glad he's in custody.

    We've gone so far as to mark June 19th, the day of his arrest, as a board holiday. :D

    That's him. There's more going on than the article relates. He's probably going to wind up with state indictments in at least two states, as well as federal indictments.

    Not mentioned in the article is the fact that the feds also confiscated several wheelbarrows.

    Will somebody please PM me offline and clue me in on The Legend Of Gunkid? I've been here for a while now and have seen lots of references to him, but they're always oblique and never really explain what made this dude persona non grata.

    There are people who are members here who personally know John Melvin Davis, know his wife, know that he was gunkid, know that most of his shenanigans on THR (among how many other forums) were through his wife's ISP, and tried to get her aid in restraining him...to no avail.

    It's him. If being gunkid was a crime, the staff have enough evidence to convict him before a jury.

    To put it bluntly, gunkid is the troll's troll.

    He's been booted off of this board more times than I can count, and has, to my knowledge been kicked off of at least a dozen other forums, probably just as many times.

    In the 1980's he was convicted of felonies for, iirc, drug dealing and illegally manufacturing suppressors. There is also conjecture that he spent some time under psychiatric care.

    After being released, he started trolling the boards heavily, generally dispensing his "thoughts" on SHTF scenarios and how to survive the end of the world. He would antagonize and insult anyone who disagreed with his utterly looney postings, and generally be an all-around unpleasant sort of person. Describing the man as completely unhinged would be a bit like describing Ebola as having a little sniffle.

    On this forum, we simply resorted to banning him as quickly as possible, and deleting all of his posts from the forum, which is why you only see references to him, and no posts.

    Well think of the poor prison shrink that is going to have to listen to him. THAT guy could write a book.

    Why'd they list all the pistols by caliber except the Colt? "Ooo, a COLT! Good thing they arrested him!"

    He himself has written books - IIRC Paladin Press - stuff like ''How to make a silencer'' etc !! :rolleyes:

    It is less his firearms offences that sit badly - more the theft of money and goods (including firearms) from people.

    All I can say about Hardin, to be, Nutty John, guntard, gunkid, etc. is...

    RIP

    Rest In Prison(again)

    I wonder what took so long? I used to think he was posting from prison years ago when he was on the Shooters forum.

    Anybody heard from Deaf Smith? He will miss Hardin. Anybody remember the back and forth they used to have on, what was it? The firing line? Or shooters? Deaf Smith, being a lawdog, must hate criminals.

    Wow Whirlwind06,

    Thanks for the link! I'd say that just about says it all. I think I've got a pretty good idea of what this nutjob was like...good thing he's going away, again.

    - After reading that link...I get it :) and I must say, it brought a smile to my face.

    I just checked the Federal Bureau of Prisons site, and the record for him indicates that he is 55 years old, not 53. There is no record of his current status as being locked up in a federal facility. It says that he was released in 2000. Maybe they didn't get the latest info online yet.
    Here is his Federal Bureau of Prisons profile:

    I think by when the balloon goes up, he was attempting to refer to when SHTF.

    -Prison Warden: "So, Mr. Eight-Ball. I understand that you shived your cell mate. That is unacceptable."

    -8-Ball: "But sir, he wouldn't shut up, it was like this all day, '9mm in 1.5 seconds, by a .22 with a suppresor conversion on an AR, when the balloon goes up, only the strong will live, will carrying your stuff in a wheelbarrow to float down the Mississippi. On and on, he just wouldn't stop."

    -PW: "Oh, your cellmate was Gunkid. I post on THR, don't worry about it. Guards, double rations from Mr. Eight Ball."
