    Red face Howdy!

    Ty here, a new member in Texas.

    I wasn't born here, but got here
    as fast as I could!
    (I was born and raised in
    Kentucky).

    My normal carry gun is Generation 3 Glock 19, but my NEW S&W M&P Shield 9mm is arriving today, so my EDC gun is liable to change
    very soon!

    I am a CNC Machinist by trade and
    spent 5 years in the US ARMY
    (1982-1987) as a 91 Bravo (Combat Medic).

    I saw zero combat.
    I worked in the Army Medical centers at Ft. Gordon, GA
    (DDEAMC) & Landstuhl Germany
    (LARMC).

    My long guns of choice are the occasional 12 ga.
    shotgun & an FN FAL (L1A1).

    Howdy Ty! Glad you're here! I lived in Texas for about 5 years...I miss it.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Thank you for your service. And welcome from Texas
    Gun control isn't about guns...it's about control. It also makes criminals out of otherwise law abiding citzens.

    Welcome from Virginia.

    My youngest son was born at Landstuhl, of course that was back in 78 when it was still the 2nd General Hospital.
