What do the hand grenades under my handle signify? 
How many posts before the junior shooter label changes to something else?
I did not notice a repair/smithing section.  Any reason?

A well balanced breakfast, being necessary to the health of the nation, the right of the people to keep an eat cereal shall not be infringed.  Now who gets the ceral, the breakfast or the people?
Sure I'll shoot your Glock.  Just hang it with the rest of the targets.

Handgrenade signal military service.  Junior shooter changes after 5 or 10 posts!

Yes - your "rank" changes as you make more posts. You can look at some of the other people (tetxt above their avatar).

You have no avatar - but you stated you were previously in the military. I made that change to your profile.

Law Enforcement personal here have little badges above their avatar. Donating members have a blue dash with text indicating that they donated to the website. Everyone else has black texas symbols - you get more of them as you post more.

However, you have the grenades due to being a veteran.

Black Texas symbols are for regular members. You get more of them as your post count goes up.

The red ones are for moderators and admins.
