      Where'd your screen name come from?

      Some of your screen names are pretty obvious, but others not so much. Just curious to see where you thought of yours.

      Mine is because my cat's name in Spartan (hence the avatar also). As I was signing up for the forum I saw him and that's all there is to it. I got the cat long before 300 came out so it has nothing to do with that, but I've always been fascinated with ancient Greek culture/ mythology so that's how he got his name, and my screen name.

      Meh, I'm bored

      My daddy gave me mine. I think mine is one of the obvious ones, though.

      I was originally "Mike Barham at Galco," but I requested a change because of the deployment (not at Galco now!) and to bring me into line with the handle I use on some other forums.

      Mine's mostly obvious. I play drums, and for about 20 years had a small music teaching studio. Many years ago (1970,s) some buddy's gave me the Drummin' man for my C.B. radio handle. I still use Drummin' Man on the C.B. When I registered at Yahoo, D m. was taken, so I added the 627 which was the month and day I was discharged from the Navy (1969).
      I actually do have a name....Larry.

      I am a former Bail Enforcement Agent and there was a TV show called "The Fall Guy" starring Lee Majors back in the 80's that was about a Stunt Man who was also a bounty hunter. So my friends and family always called me "The Fall Guy" and it stuck. By the way Heather Thomas was smoking hot on that show.

      I loved The Fall Guy - I saw season 1 DVD set out at Wal-Mart the other day...

      I think we did a thread on this - but it was over a year ago...

      This was how I got my name:

      While I have lived in the same town for the last 26 years, my childhood was quite different. And I still do a bit of traveling.

      Good thread. My fiance gave me mine. We hadn't been together very long when she saw me wearing a toboggan and thinking I looked like one called me Mister Snowman. Dunno why I went with just Snowman here; whenever I play online games (mostly the Call of Duty series) I go by MrSnowman or something close.

      I have carried a gun for close to 20 years. Prior to starting work at Galco I had done little to no training. I met Mike Barham, and as many of you know he is a fountain of knowledge. He would occasionaly call me his apprentice or use the Star Wars referance Padawan. I am 43 years old so, an old student.

      No, I'm not a baseball fan. Being in a rather non-creative state of mind years ago when logging into my first forum, I simply used my initials.

      SEMO stand for South East Missouri and Shooter just seems to fit the forum.

      Mine is just...meh. It was an inside joke a long, long time ago, and when I signed up for my first forum I couldn't think of anything else. And I just reuse it at every forum so people know who I am and I don't need to keep explaining myself.

      Mine comes from two possibilities. I have red hair and so do our two sons. Also, 3 redfish are the limit and I love to try to limit out even though I very seldom do.
