    I know C3Shooter blows $hit up but how did you get your name and what does it signify?
    Mine is Barney Google. It means Rocket-Propelled Train Banglore Torpedo. We used it for various things like clearing mine fields for one. I did demolition in the service and as a civil engineer.

    What does yours signify?

    I joined looking for info on restoring my new myosin nagant, hence mosin. I ended up liking the forum and sticking around. I might change my name one day.

    My dad gave me mine because i have been addicted to tinkering on cars to make them run better and faster. My favorite is my hotrod 1957 Volkswagen beetle. Runs about a 12 sec 1/8 mile.

    I was a sniper in the Army and a few of us started calling ourselves Ballistic Surgeons.

    I live and grew up in Chicago, one of the cities where firearms were illegal for almost 30 years and are now a privilege for the few that can afford it (price & time). I don't know how long I'll be staying in Chicago but my name stands for two things: there's no freedom without the 2nd Amendment & the 2nd Amendment needs to be "freed" (anti-gun agenda).

    Everyone always calls me princess for some reason. But I'm a diesel mechanic and I rock so it's Cinderocka not Cinderella. And I was born in 1989.

    I started out as an automotive painter (hence my avatar wearing a respirator), now I paint multimillion dollar construction equipment (if you're familiar with the trapped miners from Chile in 2010, my company built the machines that found and dug them out).
    But apparently I am very good and fast and my job. One day a coworker came to me and said I move so fast in the paint booth, I look like a ninja. Plus the protective equipment I have to wear looks kinda ninja-ish.

    I got the nickname Sputnik in high school, we were watching the movie October Sky in science class, I made a stupid comment and someone called me Sputnik. It only stuck with 2 people and one of them actually still calls me that rather than use my name.... 7 years later.

    I don't mind it, it sure helps out when you need to pick a username.:D

    I could of sworn there was a thread like this one already?

    Anyways, it seems all of the user names that I like and try for always seem to be taken, no matter how stupid/immature I attempt to go with. Now I just go with Kaido which is the last five letters of my first name.

    Curious to know what type of rigs you're on. Stationary rigs or mobile?
