Hey everyone! I've been lurking here for a couple of weeks and decided to join ya'll. Going through all the posts, using the search function, and reading a lot of threads I finally made my 1st rifle purchase: Mossberg 100 ATR .270 win. I'm a father to 2 beautiful kids, a 2.5 year old daughter and 4.5 year old son and I've been living in Texas (on and off) since 1976. Left in '84 to go serve our great country for 3 years in the US Army, 82nd Airborne Div, 407th S&S Bn. I then left for 5 years to go to Minnesota to get myself a college degree. I've been married for 9 years to a wonderful lady that's full of patience! This is a great site and I'm really glad I found you guys!
