    Hi from Texas

    My name is Bill and I live in San Antonio. Long ago I used to collect hand guns and shoot at a range. That's behind me and now I have a 9mm for SD. I shot at a range a few time to test the ammo and to break in the gun.

    My main interest used to be guns but now I'm into guitars. I love playing guitars but I'll never be a rock star, darn it. :)

    I'm glad I found this site as I was looking into self defense and needed to know where I stand. I lurked here for a while and I gotta join y'all. I am a member at KTOG (Kel-Tec).

    Glad to meet y'all. :)

    EDIT: I just noticed that my primary carry didn't show under my avatar for some reason. I carry a Kel-Tec PF9.

    Welcome from another San Antonio resident. Send me a pm and let me know what part of town you're in. There are a lot of ranges here and if you're going to carry or use your firearm for self defense, you need to get plenty of range time. One of the best ranges is out on the west side, outside Loop 1604 and south of Potranco. It's called 'The Bullet Hole'. I practically live out there.

    Hello WillyNilly!!! I'm glad that you found the Forum. I am from Costa Rica, but I went to school at the University of Texas at San Antonio and lived for 5 years in North San Antonio (Huebner Oaks area). I love Texas and I surely miss my great times there with all my college friends. The city of San Antonio is beautiful, is a great place to live and the Tex-Mex is simply amazing.

    Thanks for the welcome guys (and gals?).

    I'm in the southside very close to A Place To Shoot. I've shot maybe close to 800 rounds. I've shot mostly Federal Champions and a box of Remington UMC. I really liked the Remington. I've shot a box of Tulammo which gave me the best groups but KTOG says it's a nono for my gun, stick to brass.

    My SD loads are Winchester PDX1 124gr +P which I've shot 12 and saved 8 for carry. They all shot flawlessly. I didn't do too well with Winchester value packs where I had several FTEs.

    They're all I got from Walmart. I haven't yet visited a gun shop.
