Hello.

I'm new to the forums here and think they are a great resource. I look forward to asking plenty of q's and possibly showing some of my gear I've made as well as I may be able to answer a q or 2.

I am a Disabled US Navy Veteran that was in the Submarine Service (RadioMan).

I currently am disabled and run a one man paintball modification shop (Underground Mod Shop) which does just enough business to keep me out of some trouble (not all). I really enjoy doing it. I primarily deal in tactical modifications for scenario or woodsball guns, not body milling space guns.
I've been machining (self taught) for the last few years w/a small bench top lathe and just got my first mill last November.

I also have a background in amature gunsmithing and I'm a car nut (4x4's, VW's, old BMW's, +more)

Here's an example of one of my guns. It's a Tippmann A-5 with several mods by me.

........Great work! That doesn't look like granpa's old model 8 Remington, so it's obviously only made to kill people (I know you said it was a paintball gun :-)).

It's a paintball gun. See here:

But... If you were to point "that one" at me on the street, you'd be dodging 9mm.
