I developed an interest in SASS while I was in Iraq on my first tour. We got a Guns of the Old West Magazine in a care package. Then, I found Captain Baylor's webpages. I was hooked.
I'm a collector of period trade knives and dabble in flint knapped also. I'm learning to make my own primitive knives using strictly period materials (gut, pine pitch, hide glue, and earth pigments).
My major vice is cigars. I've been on a CAO Soprano craze lately, but my knock around cigar is a 1959 Havana Blend
