My name is Martin Thaler and I was born in 1987 in Baden, Austria. From a very young age on I've somehow developed an interest in firearms. From airsoft guns to paintball, from airguns to smallbore rifles, from centerfire pistols to precision rifles, there was hardly anything I have not tried. However, I never really did one thing over a longer period of time. Besides that I always enjoyed firearm mechanics and physics and read many books about various topics, reaching from the mechanics of a 1911 to shooting technique and even long range ballistics.
I did that for about a year and a half and noticed some progress. It's what you learn after you "know it all" that really matters, some wise man once said.
Success isn't about perfection. Perfection is an illusion. Success is about tiny daily incremental improvements that add up over time. Or as Pat Mac likes to phrase it: "If you cloned yourself yesterday, can you kick your clone's ass tomorrow?!"
