I have lived in Austin since 1974 my father was in the Air Force and we moved some. I was born and raised in Texas. I am a member of Gunboards forum, got started there when I started collecting my Mosin-Nagant rifles. But wanted to get to know some people in the place I grew up so I did a search for Texas Gun forums on the web and this one popped up. Nice to be able to actually have a chance to get to see and meet some of the people I talk with online. I see you are having a meet and greet at Lonestar. Hopefully my wife and I can make it.
