    Lightbulb Hello From TX

    Hello everyone,
    Im currently attending college in central Texas, and am majoring in criminal justice/police science. I have 2 semesters left, and am looking forward to finding out soon where I will be going when I graduate, hopefully to the Texas DPS or Federal LE.

    I have been shooting for 12 years (since I was 10), and have been shooting in various competitions for 4 years. I recently received my concealed carry permit, and carry a Springfield XD .40 SC. or a Kahr PM9 during the hot summer.

    I currently have many guns in my growing collection including an RRA AR-15, numerous combat and hunting shotguns, the before mentioned pistols plus a few, and some cowboy action goods.
    I also do some minor gunsmithing and pre-sale cleaning for a local gunstore/police supply shop.

    My current favorite firearm hobby is collecting and cleaning up (not bubbafying) military surplus rifles, and I recently came by a pair of M1 Garands from the CMP. One of these I am working on restoring as a tribute to my WWII veteran grandfather, which will be placed in a case with his medals, uniform, and flag.

    I hope to be a frequent contributor to your fine forum, and possibly bring some helpful insight to the same old arguments.

    Glad to be here.

    Welcome to the forum. Glad to have you aboard.

    The tribute to your grandfather is a great idea and something that will be treasured by him and the rest of the family long after he's gone.

    May you be successful in your final semesters at school and your career.
    The power of the future is in its ability to inspire the present.
