Hello, I am the Hammer and started shooting with Atticus back in the scouts where we both got our Eagle Scout award. I have always enjoyed the outdoors and going on adventures, especially when I was young and had the time. Now, many years later I still enjoy doing those things and since Atticus is a pro when it comes to guns, I figured I might as well learn from the best! I am still a new shooter, with a lot to learn. I think having an interest and curiosity is important when it comes to learning about this industry and guns in general.
I am a Civil Engineering graduate, currently working on my Master’s degree in Transportation Engineering. I will be graduating very soon and hope to go into the industry soon thereafter. My career is something that is very important to me; however, I feel that you have to make time for the things that you care about, and going to the gun range is one of those things.
After shooting with Atticus I wanted to get into the sport so, I went out and bought a Norinco SKS rifle which is one of my favorites to shoot. I also picked up a Glock G21 .45 ACP pistol. I don’t like to get into the Glock vs. 1911 debate because I know everyone has their own feelings towards one or the other. However, I enjoy shooting both of them for different reasons.
Throughout this blog, I will bring my new shooters point of view to the reviews as I get a chance to shoot with Atticus and the Old Man Lefty. I enjoy getting to test new guns and in particular, I really enjoy when we get to test lights and rail attachments that help me improve my shooting.
