Hey there, thought I'd chime in here before posting elsewhere. I've been registered a year, but this is my first post! Love the forum, and I've gotten lots of great information here. Lots of obsession fuel too, ha ha. I'm an 'IT guy'. I moved to NoVa from the suburbs of Detroit 3 years ago when my company bought out a company here to get into government contacting. I do server, network and desk side support for an office of about 100 and limited support for about 400 users out of the office. I have been on-call 24/7 for about 3 years straight ( :rant, so I my edc of course consists of a laptop and laptop bag and a few basic tools at a minimum. I've been interested in gadgets and knives for almost 30 years at this point. Anything machined out of metal will get a second look from me. I appreciate craftsmanship and design, and am becoming a devotee of the 'buy once, cry once' philosophy. I am also a gun owner, and will hopefully have time and money to take my CCW course soon. Thanks to JonSidneyB for the great forum, and the other members for the great information.
