    Howdy from Texas

    Former Recon Marine (years ago) and 9th generation Texan. I currently have a Marine son in Iraq.

    Weapon of choice is the 1911 style auto loader, and I carry an old, but GOOD Ballester Molina. I love this gun. No grip safety, which I always thought was a bit redundant.

    Ride4TheBrand,

    Welcome!!! It's good to see another Texan in the bunch. Of course around here, everyone's welcome. It's a great place to spend time with some really good folks.
    The only thing needed for evil to exist is for good men to stand by and do nothing!!!

    Just moved to Texas, south of Fort Worth. My wife is born and bred Texan, but I'm from Ohio, then Kansas after my tour in Vietnam. Former LEO and now a PI (since 2000). I love to shoot, but miss the wide-open places to shoot some long-guns (out to a 1000 yds.), although my ol' eyes don't do that as well anymore.

    I happened on to this forum and look forward to the interaction on a great subject.

    To all those serving today... THANK YOU. You are appreciated and respected beyond words. To all the old Vietnam Vets around, Thanks my brothers, for serving, when serving was cool. And never forgotten in my house - Thanks too to our Korean War Vets! Without Veterans, there'd be no Second Amendment! (Or First - media folks!!!)
