Hey Gang! Thanks for checking out my profile, although I’m not real sure why you would. I’m a pretty simple kind of guy. I have a bunch of kids because I figured the more I make the better chance I have of one of them being able to take care of me when I’m really old. My wife says she loves me, although I think she just tolerates me. I am a flag-waving proud American and Texan. I like camping, shooting sports and taking long naps. I am a United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) competitive shooter and I love my sport of choice. I like trucks, loud music and playing golf when I can. Yeah, I also like long walks on the beach and piña coladas, but this isn't a dating service! Love ya, mean it!
