    Congratulations on the new site and thanks for serving those who live in the Great State of Texas! I have always been a gun nut (Since I was around 9), but have only recently become addicted to reading about guns on internet forums. I really enjoy reading and learning from other people's experiences. I will primarily visit the pistol forum because I am a hard core 1911 fan. I really don't own that many guns compared to a lot of guys on these sites, but here is my list:
    1. Wilson CQB 38 Super black/gray
    2. Baer Custom Carry 45acp, hard chrome
    3. Baer Premier II 45acp, fully engraved at Tripp Research for hard chrome right now.
    4. Colt Mark IV Series 70, 45acp bright nickel
    5. Colt Ponypocket lite 380
    6. 3 Smith revolvers
    7. Glock 33
    8. Beretta over/under 12 guage
    9. Winchester Model 70, 270 WSM
    10. Springfield M1A Scout.

    I only know of one Ranger thats wears a Glock on duty and he is stationed in the DFW metro mess. We are issued Sigs P226 DAKs, which may be why you thought it was a Glock. But, to answer your question, I do carry a 1911 as my primary duty gun. Mostly the Wilson 38 Super. When my engraved Baer returns from Tripp Research, I will carry it once in a while.

    The Glock is my BUG along with a 5 shot Smith.

    You're either a Texan or you're not. :banger:

    From the massive influx of people from all borders, there are a lot that wannabe. :rofl:

    JKTex I am sorry if I offended you with my Texican remark but you need to watch the movie "the Alamo" as they refer to them self as Texicans.

    I had Family that served during the Texas Revolutionary war when it was over they moved to Louisana and settled in the most southern part of that state.

    Again I m sorry if I Offended you .

    I need to work on my smiley placement and usage. :D

    I'm not offended at all. Sometimes my humor requires a little work to dig out. :p

    So does that mean you've got some great recipes handed down in the family??? I've got a bad ass gumbo recipe I had to muddle through trying to decipher what they meant, but it's come out great. Maybe the difficulty in reading the recipe "is" the key. ;)
