Just now registered...this is my second post. You have a good set of rules...very reasonable and professional.
I lived in Texas for 56 years, the last 33 in Houston. Worked as a chemist and lab manager for a large chemical company along the Houston Ship Channel. Retired in 1999 and moved here to SW Colorado near Durango. Went elk and deer hunting last week...got a nice buck, but no bull elk.
I have had an FFL for 26 years and taught the Texas CHL training 39 times to about 1200 people before we moved away. My wife and I got our Colorado CHL renewals this past Monday.
I worked 100+ Houston-area gun shows for a Dallas-based major dealer. We often sold 350-550 guns on an Astrohall show weekend.
I am a fan of Para-Ord .45's and S&W .44 Mag/Special revolvers. I carry a 3.5" Para OPS in a Tucker or Rafter S holster plus a bison-hide vest from Coronado Gunleather.
