Some memories with Dave Jacobs just popped up on my FB feed. Made me think of the old days. I miss Dave and I miss the old days. Anyone from InTheGuard or the glory days of NHB Gear forum still around?

ITG...
Hawk was the District Attorney but it might have been him that had some crazy stories of being in law enforcement and experiencing some crazy Texas cowboy type situations.

Cowkook was a bull rider.

Srieter posted there a lot.

I read NHB gear most days, but only posted there a few times. I recognize a lot of the names mentioned. I remember SLOWCHOKE on there because I competed in his tournament as a white belt (and broke 2 ribs in the final).

Not sure I ever posted much, but I used to read it a lot. I was extremely thrilled to finally meet Val and Chrissy in person a few years back, on a trip to Virginia in 2014, plus a great seminar with Dave Jacobs on the crucifix (I still use almost everything he showed, I think).
