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.
