    Welcome to the forum. And, Congrats on the up coming wedding too.
    Ya know, she might become more than tolerant of your gun habit some day.
    I sprung a little “gift” on my wife one day. It was a Henry Rifle. A youth .22 version. (It was actually for my 12 year old son, but a 12 year old can’t “own” a gun so she was to be the legal owner.) Well, her eyes lit up, and she has been my best shooting partner ever since. (She actually talked me into my Kimber when I was starting to waver over $$.)
    So, this could turn out good for you. Just don’t wait 18 years like I did.
    It’s so much easier now days, to "Love and honor" my wife, when she is armed, and shoots a better group than I do. (Till death do us part, eh?)

    '75Scout - welcome aboard. Do you have an old "binder," or just a fan of IH? Lots of great folks here.

    Paknheat, if you are gonna be by here during spring break we could go shooting if you want to. I'm always looking for a reason to go shooting. I've been going to Chandler's Lone Star Gun Range and I'll get my CHL from him. www.carlchandler.com.

    Yeah I did have a 1975 International Scout II. My first truck and my baby. I spend nearly 10 grand getting her to look purdy and then when I had to spend $2500 in 2 weeks to keep her running I had had enough and sold her to get a new truck. At this weblink you can see pics of my Scout, it's the green one in the last 5 pics.

    Nice Scout! Apparently you can keep them a little nicer in TX than up north. My buddy had one in HS that was barely hanging on. Every time we'd hit a big bump the pass seat would poke thru the floorboards. Had to stop and prop the seat back onto it's wood block - PITA. At least with the shooting you've found another bottomless pit for your disposable income!

    Now I sit back and thing about all the money I wasted and how many guns I could have bought. That Scout gave me some fun memories and the fact that they don't salt the roads much in the winter in TX meant that it had very little rust. Although I put a lot of elbow grease and even some blood into it. Biggest pain in the butt was trying to get the manifold off and a new 4 barrell manifold back on. IH V8 manifolds are so dang heavy.

    Send me a pm when the date gets nearer. Maybe we can even set it up to get some instruction from Carl Chandler. His prices are very inexpensive. $50-100 for handgun classes. Something tailor made like point shooting or something fun like that. Just an idea, but just blasting some lead down range is too much fun in it's own right!

    amax where are you in Texas? BADMAN, I bet you have a lot of useful knowledge to pass on to a future CCWer. Any good advice? I plan on carrying a GLOCK 26 and a Kahr P9 or PM9. Both will be in a Comp-Tac C.T.A.C.
