    1) What is the most important thing in your life?

    Safeness and well-being for myself and my family.

    2) What drives you in life?

    A Jeep Cherokee. (I couldn't resist.) Basic instinct for survival I suppose.

    3) What drives you in health?

    Being worried that not talking proper care of myself will shorten my lifespan significantly. I'm 26, have a pacemaker, and am 100lbs. overweight. I know I need to do something soon here, or my life's gonna nose dive by the time I'm 35.

    4) What is the hardest thing about getting healthy/maintaining health?

    EATING HEALTHY. *munches on a cookie his wife just made.*

    5) In your opinion, what is the difference between "Quality of Life" and "Quantity of Life"?

    Quality of life > Quantity. Being attached to ventilators is no way to live. If I'm old and don't have my mind about me, off my ass. Seriously.

    6) What kind of gun do you prefer? (to keep it gun related)

    Whatever one is reliable and safe enough to save my life when I need it most. (My carry piece is a Glock 23. I don't think I need to debate the reliability of Glocks)

    1 Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

    2 A desire to have fun and promote freedom now and forever.

    3 A desire to live long and not get fat again.

    4 Diet, exercise, and a happy mindset are all required to stay healthy, so that's what I try for.

    5 Quality of life would be picking 1 year to live with shooting sports instead of quantity with 80 more without. That can also be changed around and applied to the favorite hobbies of others.

    6 I like any gun that works well.
    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    1) What is the most important thing in your life?
    Family and Friends.
    2) What drives you in life?
    The will to "succeed" I guess, although I'm still not sure what I consider to be success. I guess for now, success is finishing college.
    3) What drives you in health?
    The idea that if I exercise and eat right, I can survive. I can run for a while without having a heart attack, live-longer, stave off onset-illness.
    4) What is the hardest thing about getting healthy/maintaining health?
    Dietary, I eat a lot of meat, cheese, and grains, but hardly enough vegetables and fruit.
    5) In your opinion, what is the difference between "Quality of Life" and "Quantity of Life"?
    Quality of Life is "Can I do what I love still? Am I an immense burden for others? Am I happy?", while Quantity is just you being a walking coffin. You're dead already, but you refuse to accept that. You can't perform ANY of your basic needs for survival, you're a burden to take care of, you're on 17 different types of medication while trying to manage pain for your inoperable cancer, you can't walk, and at the same time...You have Alzheimer's, and you cannot remember any of your family. You don't recognize your own son or daughter, or your grandchildren. You do vile things you wouldn't normally do. You're merely a husk of a man that's living on the outside, and is almost completely dead on the inside, what's the point?
    6) What kind of gun do you prefer? (to keep it gun related)
    One that goes bang EVERY time I pull the trigger, one that fits my hand and I can reach all of the controls easily, and one that is affordable for me to use (mainly by not firing exotic ammunition).

    My mom is an Aide for a Nursing Home. I hear all about Quality v. Quantity almost every day.

    3) What drives you in health? Breathing, my asthma kicks my ass at times (like now).

    4) What is the hardest thing about getting healthy/maintaining health? Living in MI with the crappy weather, which kicks off the asthma.

    5) In your opinion, what is the difference between "Quality of Life" and "Quantity of Life"? That less is sometimes more, depending upon my frame of reference.

    6) What kind of gun do you prefer? (to keep it gun related) Rifle, Ruger M77 Mark II Stainless Steel with Woodgrain Stock chambered in .308 Winchester using Nikon 3-9X40 Stainless Steel Scope. I have taken 9 deer with this rifle.
    Thanks!!!
    Rights are like muscles. You must EXERCISE THEM to keep them from becoming atrophied.

    1. My wife and daughters

    2. To ensure that my children have a good future

    3. That I may live as long as possible to spend time with my family and hopefully grandchildren someday.

    4. The hardest thing is finding healthy food and avoiding all the junk.

    5. I think we must live each day to its fullest.

    6. I prefer one that I know will not fail me when I need it.

    1. Knowing and doing Gods Will.

    2. The expectation that I can make a difference in someones life.

    3. Regaining my health.

    4. Becoming active enough to cause healthy change.

    5. Quality is being able to live my life. Quantity is living fully in everything I am able to do.

    6. One that performs what I need it for.

    Hope this helps.God Bless!

    1) To crush my enemies, and see them driven before me, and hear the lamentations of the women. Ok, sorry, but I just couldn't stop myself. I'd have to say my family.

    2) Personal success. I want to make myself a better person, but my definition is better left for another day.

    3) This is where #2 falls apart, I've never been very health conscious.

    4) Caring enough about my health to get moving.

    5) Hmmm, I'm not really sure. I can't say I get that deep to be honest with you.

    6) Old. My favorite guns in my collection are older than all but a few of my living relatives, but look and work as well as the day they were made.
