Extropian in that he has stood up and accepted personal responsibility

1) Exercise his 2nd amendment rights
2) Defend himself, his loved ones, and his and their property.
3) Expand his personal experiences, etc.

As a caveat I would say: a) I hope Anton has taken, or plans to take in
the near future, gun and hunter safety courses, possibly even self
defense courses, and b) I wish he had bought an American made firearm. I
could have helped him acquire, for the same price or less, a new, fully
tested and posessing a lifetime warranty, Ruger rifle. When I mean
lifetime, I mean LIFETIME. I've seen people send in the most abused,
messed up guns to be fully repaired or replaced at no charge. Anton
couldn't hope to get that from his Vietnamese arms merchant.

The only thing I would criticize Anton about is that.
