    Good afternoon all. After 21 years, 9 months, 16 days (who's counting) I am a Texas resident again. I left Corsicana in March of 1992 to serve my Country as a Submarine Sonarman for 6 years and then I went into the telecommunications sector up in New England.
    Today at 11am, I handed in my Connecticut Drivers License and received the Texas temp one (approx 2 weeks for the "permanent" one to arrive via mail).
    This past weekend I went to the gun show in Waxahachie. What a difference from where I've been living. Very, very different from what I am used to. Night and day.
    And I forgot how darn nice everyone is in The Great State of Texas (the proper name of Texas from what I remember). I heard Merry Christmas from more people in the 6 days before Christmas than I did for the whole Christmas season back up there.
    One thing I don't remember is the amount of garbage on the sides of the road. What happened with "Don't mess with Texas"? Did everyone forget that? Makes me upset that our beautiful State is so inundated with roadside trash.
    At any rate, I currently own a Walther PPQ and a couple of family heirlooms (38 revolver and Stevens 410/22). Wife has her Beretta PX4. We will be getting our CHL as soon as practically possible. As time goes on, I'll be looking to acquire a Remington 870 (with tactical gear) and an AR of some caliber. I never took the time to look into getting nor learning about an AR back up there with all the restrictions they have. But now that I'm back in Texas...:green:


    So I'll be seeing you guys... er, y'all around. By the way, can you buy a "Super Combo “Super Combo” License Package (Type 111) with a temp paper TX DL or do I need to wait on the permanent one?

    Welcome back to the Great State of Texas, and vote Red to keep it that way.

    Good bet it wasn't Texans who trashed those roads. Most of the few who purposely do so around here aren't even from the US.

    My thoughts too.

    Welcome back to Texas, thanks for your service.
