If you're willing to say, why your moniker?

I know a lot of folks may not want to disclose the reason behind their moniker. But if you are okay with doing so, what's your story?

For me, I have a patent on a firearm magazine design. No, I'm not in publishing.

I have used the same moniker since the days of AOL. I use it on pretty much all of my online profiles. Its origin was actually by mistake. My parents are Cuban. I was going to make a name that started with Cuban. I didn't notice that the field had a default value of anonymous. I started typing and hit enter. The name came back as available and I liked it so I stuck with it.

Cool thing is that it's always been available on every sight I use so it's worked out quite well. Makes it easy when my username is the same everywhere. But, I've become not so anonymous because of it. LOL

Mine is a painting by Maxfield Parrish. I use it everywhere and have never tried to use it, and found it in use. If you see Luteplayers on another forum, it is probably me.

Michigan makes great beer. One of these is Hopnoxious. That name was taken on Xbox live, so here we are. Also, I like guns.

Just my initials and I use them on all the firearm related sites I visit. I am also not clever enough to have thought of an avatar that advertises my wealth, prowess with women, expensive cars or favorite alcoholic beverage. I am simply Jeff.

This is easy.

My imaginary friend told me that they had a distant cousin. That was distantly related to someone that worked as a merchant mariner back in the olden days.
Sounded cool to me.

One of the 1st C&R weapons I purchased was an Argentine Sistema 1927. This was about the time that I discovered firearms forums, including this one. I use the same moniker on several of them, and also have an email address to match.

For me, tanner was my first Brittany, the finest hunting dog I owned. Great bird dog, greater family pet. Was there for my girls when I was stationed in the Middle East.

Just a nick name, my first job out of college there were three Mikes in the office and I was the last so they shortened my last name to Thig and it stuck.

Magazineman I have read many of your post over the past few years and although I don’t always agree with you I have always respected your opinion. You really seem to be one of the good guys that I could disagree with yet get along with. I live on the opposite side of the country from you in South Carolina and I have always loved firearms and shooting them so I go by SC shooter.

I always thought you might be into published magazines in one way or another but that is very cool that you have a firearms magazine design.

Thanks SC shooter. There's many I've wondered about. Like is chrysanthemum's name a reference to the Royal Family crest on Arisaka rifles?

Then some I just don't want to know----- and yes, I'm talking to you, Captain Methane!
