Hello from Texas. Looks like there are just a few more Texans here on the forum...
Found this site while surfing, and have no idea why I had not seen it before. Really like what I've seen so far, and hope to be a contributing member here.
I'm 64, and have been around guns my whole life. Growing up on a farm, we would hunt for rabbits and squirrel as well as deer. Was in the Army during Vietnam, and flew helicopters. Back then they issued us a M-16, and a .38 to carry. That M-16 was just too long to keep strapped to me while flying the OH-6, and the .38, well what can I say... I liked the .45 better. I did some horse trading, and added a CAR-15, and a .45 to my arsenal. Had both strapped to me when flying. That was years ago, and I still love the 1911 platform. Simple, rugged, and reliable. My daily carry is a Kimber Stainless Ultra carry II, or a Kimber Stainless II full size. My wife has a Sig P238, and I also have one as a BUG. Luck has been with me, and so far I've not had to use my weapons for defensive purposes, and I pray to God I never will.

We have some things in common. I'm new here, I am doug, grew up a hunter in Texas, about your age, and carry a Kimber .45 daily. Haven't been here long but you'll find plenty of intelligent folks to discuss a variety of subjects, especially concerning current trends in "carry" options.
