    I'm Browning 9 cause 380 ACP is my favorite pistol caliber. It's usually pocketable, compact and packs a punch at usual self defense range. Tnoutdoors9 has an excellent vid on 380 penetration. Ball ammo went thru denim + 12 inches of gel and then some.

    How did you choose yours?

    My "call sign" was assigned to me by the Department.... my board name I use of "FlashBang" was given to me for my propensity to toss flash bangs, and for a small incident where I fumbled one and dropped it on my own friendlies. :)

    Mine is an easy one.
  11. Because I've almost always had a beard and longer hair. Dad always called me a hippie. My reply was that I was a grumpy hippie.

    I like to think of the consequences of my actions before I act. I don't always maintain that level of discipline, but I strive to achieve it.

    I don't use my old call sign for my forum handle. My call signs varied per my assignment. "God", "ferret", etc. Once I had the experience to designate I learned TacOps called the shots anyways.

    Rachgier is ancient German for thirst for vengeance. Take that for what you will.

    Ever hear of OPSEC? ;)

    That's all well and good, but I'd rather have you define THIS:

    As for mine, I was unjustly banned from a website as RGR and noticed that the word "undeRGRound" neatly contained my old sn, so I created a troll account and got back in :D
    The place that had some grounds for a ban, never did. Funny how "justice" is rarely "just" :rolleyes:

    I thought we covered that before? It stems from back when we had an offsite chat room and several members started nicknaming people. My particular brand of humor reminded them of Jeff Dunham.
