    Welcome aboard.

    I didn't think is was possible to do long range shooting in TX? Too many oil wells!:D Plus it's too hot and too low. He air is a bit thick down there.:)

    Yep, this is a good place to learn. Also, a good place to get bum dope from the dumb ones like me.:rolleyes:

    Snoop around for the "find me on the map" feature. You'll see the locations of those in your area. Seems to me, there are quite a few.

    Spent a lot of time in Dallas/Ft. Worth, Conroe and Wacksahatchie (sp) a few years back. Did the hawg thing with dogs. T'was scary as hades on a dark night!!!
