    Hardtail says Howdy from Houston!

    I'm brand new to this forum. I'm semi retired from the car business and enjoying being out from behind the manager's desk after 41 years.
    Over the years I've owned every thing from a Winchester .375 H&H Magnum to a Jennings 22LR. In the past two years I've become more interested in guns than ever. I haven't hunted since moving to Houston 17 years ago. Previously living in western New York provided great hunting experiences starting when 14 years of age. I plan on getting back to hunting again. I have an LMT308MWS, and an LWRC M6A2 6.8mm. These will be my deer and hog rifles when I get back to hunting. In the meantime I recently purchased a Kimber Solo. I took it to the range today. The trigger pull is really sweet!. But the little 9mm really bucks hard. I found myself flinching until I adjusted to where the trigger releases the firing pin. So it sure aint for going out plinking! But its size makes it a very powerful pocket pistol for self defense. So I'll fit this shooting activity in with hitting the golf ball and riding my Harley. Life is good. And America is a great place to live.

    Hi Hardtail.
    I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

    Welcome from South Carolina...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
