    Good morning gentlemen and ladies. I come to you from the fresh air of freedom in the Republic of Texas.
    After high school, I joined the U.S. Army, the beginning of all useful knowledge. After BCT, AIT, OCS, Officer Basic, a very educational platoon command, law school, a branch transfer from the CE to the JAGC, more military education, a tour as an Aide-de-Camp, and a couple of tours in crumby places, became a special agent with the INS, but remained in the reserves. Twenty-three years later, I retired from federal law enforcement and the reserves (32 years Army and Army Reserve).
    On that day, I went from being in charge of a lot to stressful things to being in charge of my pet dog. And I realized that I didn't know anything about anything. So far I have learned that when building a house, your contractor will sell you enough building material to build three houses, there are places where you can still buy a firearm at a garage sale, and in Texas, all your neighbors will come up to your house and introduce themselves.

    LTC welcome, you are in a far better place than the liberal haven of Cal. Texas has straight, hard working respectable citizens and even the young children say yes sir. This site has like minded members and if you like to shoot long range all your questions will be answered. Good luck
