Good Evening Ladies and Gents,
I was reading some of your very insightful and educational posts and thought to myself, why not become a member? I'm a family man with a wonderful wife, three kids, two dogs, two cats, and a rabbit. I'm a military veteran with some ribbons that seem to indicate I was an ok shot (mostly because I grew up in the sticks of South Texas, where having a .22 on hand was more than convenient). I have a concealed carry license, and believe it's an obligation, rather than an option. I love shooting, whether it's a handgun, shotgun, rifle, bow, slingshot, etc. I'm also a pretty decent golfer (6 handicap). While I may be in the city, my kids are learning about safe responsible shooting, hunting, and fishing. Bought a tent, but can't seem to convince the kids it's ok to sleep in the outdoors. Maybe they will be more willing now that the nights are cooler. The third expensive passion I will mention (I've already mentioned shooting and golf) is keeping my 1997 Range Rover operational as a daily commuter. I love that vehicle more than any other I've owned, and that's been a few. The one other thing I'd like to mention - I've recently lost a ton of weight...to the tune of 60 lbs. Almost back down to my military weight! You can't out-exercise bad eating habits.
That's me in a nutshell! Did I miss anything? I'm looking forward to being a part of discussions on this forum!

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

Never challenge an old man, because if you lose, you’ve lost to an old man, and if you win, so what?
