    Greetings from yet another Texan

    As you may have surmised, my name is Jim and I'm from Texas, San Antonio to be exact.

    I'm an experienced shooter, and I'm retired from the military as well. I currently repair computers.

    Though not a new shooter, I am relatively new to concealed carry, so I am likely to read more than I post. Still, if I can contribute, I will.

    Jim

    Welcome to the DC Forum from Delaware! The only time I was in San Antonio was for Air Force Basic and Air Police Training. I did come back three years later Fort Sam Houston for AZR Training prior to going to Vietnam. I enjoyed my time in Texas, but boy did it get hot down there.

    Thank you everybody for your greetings. I really appreciate it.

    Generally when you think of San Antonio, you think of warm (or hot) and sunny, but as I type this, the city's closed down. Last night, it drizzled, then snowed on top of the ice sheet. All the freeways are closed right now, and all non-essential personnel have been told to stay home.

    I live on a slight hill, and I'm hearing the cars slipping and sliding around outside right now. All in all, an interesting day in San Antonio.

    Once again, thank you all for the nice greeting.

    Jim
