Walt in PA

About Walt:

Walt White and Natalie WhiteMy name is Walt White and I live outside of Reading, Pennsylvania. By day I am a draftsman and my typical work week consists of drafting and designing architectural millwork. By night I am an avid cigar enthusiast and Co-Founder of Stogie Review.

In my spare time, I enjoy shooting pistol. This started out as a hobby that took place a couple of times per month. That all changed in July 2011 when I was introduced to the wonderful world of USPSA. I started off shooting the occasional match and have grown into routinely shooting two mates per month (I would shoot more if I could afford it!)

I am married to a wonderful woman who is patient and supportive of my hobbies. We have a beautiful daughter who I absolutely love spending time with. Before our daughter was born, my wife and I used to make trips to the range and shoot together. When our daughter gets a little older, I hope to resume those range trips and shoot together as one big happy family.

Walt White - Shooting G17 - June 2012

This blog was started as a New Years Resolution in January of 2009. At the time I was heavily engrossed in Stogie Review and felt like all I ever did was write about and talk cigars. While I enjoyed the hobby a great deal, I needed an outlet for the other things that crossed my mind.

In the early days I posted about random topics that interested me. One days discussion topic may have been a movie I watched with my wife. The next days discussion topic may have been something my dog did that I found amusing. The day after that may have covered a home repair that I was involved in. As you can see, completely random.

After about a year of posting random topics, I decided that I wanted to narrow the focus. I began pruning back topics which I deemed too random and watched my blog grow, ever so slightly. Even with fewer topics being discussed, I still found that blog to be a fantastic outlet. In 2010 I began posting about range sessions and suddenly my traffic soared (in terms of a small personal blog).

As the comments picked up on my blog and the discussions increased on Twitter, I decided to stick with firearms. Since then, I have added in a weekly gun podcast (Shooting The Breeze) and regularly post USPSA Match Video and Topics.
