I have decided to spend the next year writing about the point at which guns and politics intersect. And so I will!

I can't say enough about working with Narcis on buying our new VW, which, for the first time in our long career of working with Narcis, is VW RED! He was completely comfortable to talk with. No pressure. Nothing misleading. All right on the table. I don't think you could find a better agent to work with in buying VWs and I will not hesitate to send even my best friends to see him. The man is an 11 on the 1 to 10 scale!
