"Snorkel" was my Army radio call sign. Like Sgt. Snorkel from Beetle Bailey.

My original handle somehow got fouled up on eBay and I needed to re-register and set up another one in order to get a bid in on time. For an item that I had been looking for quite some time. I typed in: 'binlookin' and punched in my password and I was back in business! 'I been looking a long time'.
A long time before I got hooked on Garand's, Carbines and .22 target rifles. I was into 'collectable' cast Iron cookware. [Which helped finance my move into these 'OLD' guns!]
and 'I still be looking' !

d is my first initial. swider is how a good friend of mine mispronounced my last name once in high school and it stuck as a nickname. 777 points to my relationship with Jesus who died for my sins, restored my relationship with God and truly set me free from bondage.

Default "MePoocho"

J.R. 2009,

I'm happy to have found this site. I'm a new guy that has his Dad's Korean War M1 carbine. I am presently climbing the 'vertical' learning curve on the history, etc of the M1 carbine. This site is a magnificent venue for so much information.

Anyway, 'MePoocho' came from living in Baja Sur, California... In 2005 my wife and I moved to a small fishing village 1,100 south of the US border on the coast. We built a place on the ocean and lived there for 8 1/2 years.

One day while on our monthly two hour journey to town for provisions we spotted a six week old little puppy on the side of the dirt road and picked her up. We named her 'Betsy' and nursed her back to health.

We enjoy the song 'Béame Mucho' (kiss me a lot) so we made it 'BetsyMePoocho' and sing it to her. Now we are presently living in Florida and still we sing it to her and I use 'MePoocho' on this forum.

As a side note,,,, J.R. 2009, in early '65 I was also in SAC on B-47's in the 509th stationed at Pease, AFB, NH. And in mid '65 I was reassigned to PACAF and C130's. Which dropped my rear in SEA & Vietnam until '71.

Long story, but that is why I use 'MePoocho'.

Default Bullet Caster

I got my moniker because I cast bullets and use that moniker on several other sites. I like to cast my own bullets as I have moulds for all my weapons and I love to reload my own ammo. That's the cheapest method for someone who likes to shoot.
