    Hello From Houston

    Hey everyone, new member here.

    I've been carrying since 05 (when I became old enough to apply for the permit in GA). I'm now in Texas, carrying here as well with a Texas Resident Permit. It covers quite a few states.

    Background: I'm US Coast Guard and move around a bit. I'll be moving to Alaska this summer. Juneau to be precise. Everyone in my family carries, both inlaws and immediate family including my mother.

    I try to carry whenever possible (which is a problem when I'm on federal property which I often am). My favorite Carry weapon for the moment is my Taurus 617 which is a 7 round .357mag. My second favorite due to ease of carry is my CZ82.

    I've got an M44 Taurus on order now and it should be here this week. I've got several other pistols and rifles, some pistols of which I can conceal and some I cant so easily. I view choosing which pistol I carry like a girl might choose a handbag. I wear whatever fits the outfit I'm wearing and is most comfortable for it.

    Glad to be here and Hope to learn a bit from you guys.

    Thanks everyone. This is the first forum of this type I've been on. I'm usually on car Forums and love doing custom work. The only other gun forum I've been on is snipercentral to get long distance shooting pointers but while researching ammo choices for my .44mag and also looking for some ballistics info on the .38 Critical Defense 110 grn +p I've been using in my .357 for regular carry I stumbled across this forum and decided to join up.

    I shoot in 2 different places. Indoors I go to a little place here in Humble. Can't recollect the name offhand. It's not something memorable but I go there once a month or so. It's on FM1960 near 59. The second place I shoot is outdoors and has up to a 300yd range. I use this for rifle shooting only and tend to go less often. It's called thunder gun range on the porter-conroe rd a little northwest of kingwood.

    Back home in GA we have several hundred acres and we shoot all we want there.

    I like my Texas Permit much better than the GA one. Gives me quite a few extra states. It's funny that with my Texas permit I can carry in GA and South Carolina (my family lives right on the border in Augusta). My father who lives 3 miles from SC can't carry a gun while in SC but I can when i visit back home. lol
