Howdy From Central Texas

#1 Post by TxChef » Thu Aug 29, 2019 7:09 pm

Trying to find more like minded people as most other gun focused groups tend to make me want to scream.

I haven't shot regularly in over a decade now, but trying to get back into it after recently starting to learn to reload.

Primarily focused on bolt action rifles and skeet shooting.

Would love to find other local shooters to meetup with once the temperatures drop to less than the surface of the sun hot. Located about an hour east of the Austin area so Houston is not out of the question either.

G’day.

I’m sure somebody from our large TX chapter will be along shortly.

Welcome!

You're equidistant from some very excellent cities, right? Small town living, but close to those cities in TX sounds nice.

Heavily modified Remington 700 in .308 Win. About 15 years ago I decided I wanted to build my own so the only original pieces are probably the action and trigger. It has mostly sat in the safe for the last decade. Also have a Fausti O/U 20ga that I used for skeet which has sat for about as long. Have kept up with making sure they are dry and properly oiled all these years at least.

Closest to Austin for sure, but close enough to Houston and San Antonio for easy weekend trips in under 2 hours for either.

LOL I drive almost that far to work every day. I guess it is all relative. :)

I do about an hour each way myself which is pretty much my limit for what I am willing to commute. I think I would go nuts being on the road 4 hours a day, 2 is enough.

Very cool. Grew up outside of Corpus Christi and would make a trip up to Concan during the summer for some tubing on the Frio more than a few times in the 80s and early 90s. Passed through your neck of the woods on the way there.
