Hey! My name is Dakota Caraway.  I've been reading up on the art of manliness blog for a week now and It's been a great inspiration. Recently I've been in a slum and reading these articles has made me start to re-think about how I've been spending my time.  I've been a bit of a wall flower for awhile and the advice that this blog gives is just... why did I not discover this a few years back?  This has been the most excitement I've felt in awhile.  But I have to admit, the advice given on here is only valuable if you put it to use.  Recently I've been reading the Heading Out on Your Own series and even though I thought I knew what I was doing being a year away from home, I fall short in most areas.  I hope that my time here will help me grow and I will get to know a few people who I can call friend.

Also: I was afraid my first post was a bit abrasive and I would hate for that to have been my introduction.

"The only thing thus far i don't really like about the Al-Star is that the cap screw for the clip is plastic and I think it's stripping out on me. Anyone know if you can get a spare screw anywhere?"

" Yes. You don't currently have to know New Jersey's separate laws on driving? Why would gun ownership/transport/etc. laws be different? "

"Quick point: no need to take it to SCOTUS to challenge the constitutionality of the law, just change the law."
