It's been interesting going through this thread, I don't think I've posted here.

I chose knifeslinger because I always seem to have a whole bunch of knives on or near me (dumb name, I know ::facepalm::) the 81 is for one of my favorite knives, the gec 81 stockman.

Below is the man who gave me the name, Cpt.Diep CO of the 1st Bn, 44th Reg, 23rd ARVN Div. He was very smart, very brave, very tough, and as fine an officer as one could serve with. As his advisor, one of my most important duties was to call in fire support. We used a variety of assets but most commonly the support was from artillery. It so happened that I had a knack for getting rounds on target fast meaning not having to use many spotting rounds, never more than three and frequently two or-with a bit of luck-one. Then, calling "fire for effect" a storm of shells would descend upon our NVA opponents. Diep appreciated this and when we were kicking back he would sometimes refer to me as Cpt. Quick Steel.
Cpt. Diep and his battalion were lost in the final invasion of the South. RIP.

Lots of interesting user names and how they came about. :wink:

I first used this handle (solwarrior) on AOL back in 1996 when you could only use up to 10 letters so the prefix in this made up handle "Sol" I figured fit both sole as in one individual and soul as in the spiritual sense. And warrior as I trained religiously in Aikijujutsu and with much of its weaponry for many years and was still actively training and instructing back then. I have this user name in many sites cause it's discreet and also because I'm just too lazy to think up of another. :lol:

Felix my uninspiring name also comes from AOL days. I guess there were 7157 G Smiths before me. :D :D

Hmmmm well I thought long and hard before I decided on a username. Lol not really my last name is Landers and I love knives so I put them together. There are some very cool stories attached to the names used here though. ::woot::

I feel I was lucky to be young during the heyday of muscle cars. In high school I had a 39 Ford coupe, and several Dodge and Plymouth "A" body performance cars. The "A" bodies were considered compacts, small cars with big motors. I had 3 69 Dodge 340 Swingers, a 67 Barracuda Formula S Fastback, and a 67 Dodge R/T 440 magnum. I always wanted an A body Barracuda with a big block. In 1999 I found a 68 Barracuda Formula S Convertible, 383, 4 speed. Even though they started putting big blocks in the A bodies in 67, they only put them in convertibles in 68. They made 64 383 convertible Cuda's in 68, 24 automatics and 40, 4 speeds. So, it's a rarefish with a 383. Rarefish383, Joe.

Mine, Ramrod, was my grandpas CB handle back in the 70's.

Nothing fancy about mine. My favorite pocket knife pattern is the Queen Railsplitter like the one in my avatar.

The fact that I live in Springfield, Illinois and one of Abraham Lincoln's nicknames was The Railsplitter is strictly coincidence and has nothing to do with my user name.
