OK something like that.

Anyway, started shooting freshman year high school (1973), back when rifle team shot.22lr in basement of school, had 40 or so M-14's in armory that Drill Team used, at summer camp we could take marksmanship for 2 weeks solid, experienced M-1 thumb first hand there, it's the same with M-14, M1A, you get the idea. Developed the Class 3 bug after first couple of KCR's, 1st in 1992, got the Vollmer sear MP5 in 1995.

Been an Emergency Medical Technician here in Indiana since 1978, spent about 8 years as a paramedic in downtown Indy, done a variety of other things since, was stay-at-home Dad for a while, drove a parts truck, worked for State highway then for State Emergency Management. Went back to the hospital in 2003, working in Cardiac department, in spring of 2005 I moved to LifeLine Critical Care Transport as an Air Medical Communicatioons Specialist, (aka dispatcher). We dispatch and conduct flight following for our 4 helicopters in Indiana, along with follow and support those from outside the state and from other parts of the state, we also coordinate the responses of the Riley Pediatric / Neonatal Ground Air teams, going after and transporting really sick kids, we also receive and coordinate Emergency Medical Radio traffic for Methodist Hospital's Emergency Medicine and Trauma Center, one of two Level 1 Trauma center's in Indiana.

I'm also an amateur radio operator, KB9RDL, not a vanity call, I just lucked out, and enjoy storm chasing in the summer time.

Back to shooting, I own the MP5, just picked up a Springfield M1A that's fantastic, and enjoy a Kimber Custom TLE 2 also. If I ever hit the lotto, I'll have an M3 Grease Gun, but nothing else interests. I have two great kids Sarah who shoots MP5 also, and Emily, kinda warming up to it, not there yet. I am blessed with a fantastic wife Lisa of 19 years.

I've been luck to become friends with Todd over last couple of years, he invited me to check out the site, really glad I did, he's done an outstanding job with it and I'm sure it will just get better.

From Mike Kummer. I don't know if you heard of the story of a dewat M3 in a pawn shop in Fort Wayne, IN about 6 months ago going for 1K. The buyer later was asking I believe 15K for it after he nabbed it. Mike
