    Whew, finally made it.

    I am in McKinney, Texas... in fact I was born here. My family came to Texas in 1846 from Ohio. Before that they came from New Jersey where my 7 or 8 Greats grandfather settled after coming from Germany in 1752. We have been here for awhile. :happy0001:


    Recently my wife and I became the proud parents of a new baby girl. While it might not be popular among many guys I am going to stay home and be a full time dad when my wife returns to her job in a couple of weeks. I was, until a few days ago, a Realtor and we decided it was best for me to stay home.

    I have a fairly decent collection from my Bersa .380 up to my recently built AR-15.

    Welcome from a retired Realtor just down the road in Frisco!!! What gun range do you shoot at, if any? We used to shoot at The Collin Co. Gun Range on 380 before it was shut down by a liberal judge.:texas:

    I don't really have a place to shoot. Its been awhile for me. My dad has a place up outside of Pottsboro where I can shoot, but its hard to get out there sometimes with everyones schedule. There is "Ralphs Range" out in Tom Bean, but once again, its hard to get out that way.

    We shoot at the Bullet Trap in Plano about once or so a month. Pretty good indoor range with pull up targets and a couple of bays for rifles. Good people there and lots of toys to look at, fondle or buy. We've bought several guns there that were priced competitively. You can also rent guns. It's worth it to buy a membership for reduced range fees. It's on Ave K, just straight down Hwy 5 from McKinney. Here's their web site address www.bullettrapinc.com
