    Whether it's a self portrait or your favorite Glock, some are pretty self-explanitory, others are just flat out odd. What is the reasoning behind what you decided to use for your avatar... After I first shaved my head, I got the usual teasing from friends that would be expected after such a radical change in hair style. Baldy, Mr. Clean, Q-Ball were pretty common. But when someone called me "Sir Lancelot", I had to ask "Huh?" He said, "Your head is so shiney!" So, I was looking at helmets that knights wore with a suit of armor. They just didn't look right without the whole suit and all. Then I stumbled upon this crazy, mean lookin' Spartan type helmet. No suit. Just a headfull of metal. Perfect...my avatar.

    My son putting a bracelet on mommy I made. I'm an AF cop and am stationed 1200 miles from them. So on post I made them the three bracelets you see. My son has always played with the Thin Blue Line 550 cord bracelet I wear since the day he was born, he loves them.

    Mines an early version of the Oklahoma state flag. No deep meaning, just proud to be an Okie.

    I spend a lot of time running long distances so it is just a picture I found online. A running man on the inside. My screen name I came up with years ago. Started with the movie title "The Running Man" but shortened it a bit. Sort of like postman, policeman, Batman, so it became runman. Cool idea for a thread.

    My avatar is me shooting the El Presidente stage at my first USPSA classifier. I was introduced to guns at an early age for hunting. Over the past year I really got into guns for competition.

    I had my bow broken down to put a sling hook, and a fall away rest on it. Before I cranked the draw weight back up, I decided to try out some Gold Tip Entrada 600 arrows with feathered vanes, I was about 60 yards out & just wanted to see how the would fly. They do okay at 55# but they work better with my 45# recurves. I just put it up for an Avatar for something different.

    Mine is the Gadsden flag. It was one of the first Marine banners during the American Revolution. There is a wonderful history of it at the following web site:

    Mine is one of my many many many many many dream cars. I love the 'Green with Envy' they put out on the SRT Dodges back in 2011. (I think it was a special color for that year.)

    This is a picture of the Dodge Challenger Targa race car, and I just think it is cool!

    I keep my avatar the same on all forums I visit. One day, I will change it to another car/truck/hotrod that I actually own.
    PS I did not take that picture nor own the car, but it is cool isn't it?!! :D
