Welcome to TGT! Always a treat when a brother of the Patriot Picket drops by for even a virtual visit. I don't think you'll have much trouble fitting in here. The additional dosages of "Freedom" and "Texas" may be a big change for a refugee from the People's Democratic Socialist Republic of Marylandistan, but they have remarkable curative powers. I'll strongly second the previous suggestions to make your Texas visit in more than virtual form. The beer is cold, the BBQ is great, and every breath you draw is sweet perfume to the soul. There will be a brief period of disorientation as you become used to dealing with polite and friendly folks on a daily basis. The training required to get a Texas LTC is about the equivalent of what you have to go through in the PRM just to be able to purchase a handgun and costs about $300.00 less.
