    I was at a urinal next to him at SHOT Show years ago.  Not the place to introduce myself or try to shake hands unfortunately.  He booked it outta there to get back to the Glock booth, and the line was a mile long.  Never got to meet him, but everybody that did spoke the world of his charisma.  Tall guy too....they made him look short in FMJ.

    Funny role for him in Saving Silverman......played Jason Biggs & Jack Black's crazy football coach.  Love that movie.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    One of a kind.  You don’t see acting like this anymore, people get offended if you look at them wrong nowadays.

    He was not even cast in the movie, he was there to advise. They gave him a chance in front of the camera, and he rocked it. They kept him, and sent the other guy home.

    And he was unscripted. A genuine performance.

    I did not know either of these things.  That is definitely impressive.

    FMJ has got to be one of the more prominent anti-war movies ever made.
