We are your average couple living in small town middle America. With the world becoming more dangerous everyday we have decided to take personal responsibility for our safety. But how does one go about that? Join us as we learn together and share our adventures with this little podcast project. Who knows? Maybe we will even have a little fun along the way!
Melisa is the girl next door, no really, she grew up two blocks away from Toby and they had never met until a few short years ago. Since then she has started riding motorcycles and shooting firearms. She has worked in restaurant management and currently is a supervisor in the medical billing field. She has a Concealed Handgun Permit for the state of Nebraska and carries everywhere she is allowed to by law. In addition to the CHP class required by the state she has also started taking more advanced firearms training as time and resources allow. She now volunteer’s with Project Appleseed administration and is working to become an Appleseed instructor.
Toby has worn a few hats over the years but he seems to wear the ‘mechanic’ hat the most. He has owned firearms on and off since 1995 but never considered them as a self defense tool until he met Melisa. That’s when he realized that because he loves her so much that he owes it to her to come home safe to her every night. That caused him to take the Nebraska CHP class and get his permit to be able to legally carry a firearm for self defense. Toby is now a volunteer instructor with Project Appleseed.
