Hello All,

Please allow me to introduce myself; I am Ken a.k.a. kilogulf59 and thank you for allowing me to join this most essential and edifying group.

For a bit about me, I am just a typical middle-aged gent who is, and always has been, interested in weapons (from lapel daggers to ICBMs) and their usage, integrated close combat methods with and without weapons, general and reasonable preparedness, and all things of that nature. In addition, I maintain a great fondness for history, the written word, classic films, and little hunting and fishing tossed in as well. Oh and I love to cook (and eat :().

I am somewhat of a political activist/US Constitutionalist (especially the 2nd Amendment), and nationalist, furthermore, I am a Gun Owners of America Life Member, Wisconsin Gun Owners, Inc. member, RWVA Member, and am affiliated with several other patriotic organizations; also, I am the founder of the Integrated Close Combat Forum (ICCF) and Kilogulf59's ICCF Blog Spot. Currently I am active on Facebook and maintain an ICCF page there as well.

For an insight into my mindset and therefore my thought process, personally I believe in simplicity and the common sense approach in all areas, to include preparedness and confrontational management. It is my express opinion that true combat is not esoteric nor is it convoluted…it is unpretentious, fleeting, and extremely brutal and that "man is THE weapon, everything else is simply an object". As founder and administrator of the Integrated Close Combat Forum, which is a free and nonprofit site dedicated to the education of the layperson and professional-at-arms alike, I have striven to emphasize this methodology.

I will tell you that I am significantly influenced by the teachings of some of the true innovators in the Combatives field. "Shooting to Live" is my Old Testament and "Kill Or Get Killed" my New Testament, so to speak and no blasphemy intended. Of course, that would make Lt. Col. Fairbairn, Maj. Sykes, Col. Applegate, Col. Askins, Col. Jordan, S.A. Brice, Maj. Grant-Taylor, et al, the disciples should I maintain the religious analogy.

As far as my personal background is concerned, I was born and raised in Chicago so, by default, I unfortunately learned a little "confrontational management" the hard way; on the streets, mainly in what not to do…like bleed. My training experience includes Modern Arnis, Miyama Ryu Jujutsu, and FSA style combatives. Formal handgun education was initially through the Chicago P.D. Explorer Program in my youth, later as an adult I attended classes taught by a retired Chicago P.D. Firearms, NRA Certified, and Chapman Academy Instructor and the FSA combat shooting skills that I have learned on my own and with the guidance of a few select instructors in the field. Formal rifle training with the American Legion as a youngin' and as an adult with the great Appleseed Project, which is the best training around.

Take Care and Stay Safe,

We gots a cheddar curtain? I thought all of our excess went to feed the poor starving hard working tax passing council members of Cook County. Actually I think the tax was a good idea, they can hop up here to our corner of the world and buy all the ammo they want.
