About neutron619
Biography:
My work is in software engineering but at heart, I think I'm a hunter. There's nothing so natural as "kill it, cook it, eat it", though it's sometimes a bit of a job to decide if the hunting or the cooking is the best part!

I enjoy pigeon / rough shooting, deer stalking and reloading (rifle and shotgun). I like the "unusual" and do most of my shooting with a 16 and 28 gauge shotguns (but I use a perfectly ordinary .308 for the deer).
Location:
Cambridgeshire
Interests:
Keyboard Instruments, Organbuilding, Singing, Philosophy / Ethics, Ballistics, Cooking
Occupation:
Software Engineer

Freedom is having the right to offend and be offended; politeness is temporarily eschewing that right in respect of others; maturity is understanding the compromise and applying it.
