Howdy from Texas

#1 Post by blunderbuss » Wed Sep 12, 2018 9:15 am

Hi all. I've been a member for 5 months or so, but I'm just now getting around to an intro. I'm a lifelong Texan, and I shot a lot as a kid but much less so as an adult. For the past 3-4 years, though, I've been picking up the pace and making some new purchases. However, I have an anti-gun spouse, so I haven't managed to acquire the arsenal I would like... yet. :D

I hear rumors of a hidden Texas forum. Is there something I'm missing on how to request access to that?

Looking forward to more interaction with the group.

Howdy. From whereabouts are you in TX?

Regarding the hidden TX forum, SimmerDown is the kingmaker for that. He'll probably be around in a bit to let you in the door. Don't pee on the carpet.

Thanks for the info, atxgunguy. I'm in the DFW area.

Well I only have handguns, so at the moment that's what I like. :)

Way back in the day I briefly shot competitively (olympic style 22 rifle). I've been thinking of some sort of centerfire target rifle -- maybe an AR or even something like a CZ 527 with an aftermarket peep sight added.

Another howdy from Houston! We have a range meet in Lockhart near the end of this month. Since you don't have the requisite Texas arsenal yet, you've come to the right place, we share. We also give advice on gun shy spouses. Mind you the advice often sounds better over a beer and BBQ than during implementation. Welcome! :beer2:
