    Hello from H. O. T

    Howdy Folks;

    New guy from central Texas - I am just starting to get back into shooting modern guns after a long absence and shooting muzzleloaders. I recently purchased a Sigma SW40VE and did the trigger modification (I wanted a 9 mm but the price on the 40 SW was very good). It shoots well and I have put a couple magazines through it. I am gonna get into a CHL class in TX this is gonna be interesting - I served in Security Forces squadrons and Civil Engineering (support stuff) and a former LEO and in my home state of Washington a class is not neccessary to get a concealed carry license) I train hunting dogs for a living but my significant other just got a job up in NM as the City of Farmington Animal Control and Park Ranger Director, and I may try to get into working MWD's and such.

    I am a strong supporter of the US Constitution and I am concerned where our country may be headed. To this end, I am looking to purchase a tactical rifle (probably an AR 15 variant) and this will be my first step into the world of tactical rifles (well sort of, after all I was trained with and had to carry one in conjunction with my USAF duties) and I am researching that and trying to make a good decision about that.

    Thanks
