The author is a classically trained musician, that went to school to become a teacher, but definitely now works a desk job in an office full time and at a sporting goods store on the weekends. An average fellow, not only a snob when it comes to music, but he also thinks himself to be a critic of firearms (with questionable authority at best). He is an avid shooter, with a very modest but eclectic collection of firearms. His opinions are definitely worth what you pay for, but who knows? Something intelligent may come from his mouth at some point.
