    That armory was my brigade HQ. I got out last year. I was with 1/141 INF out of Camp Bullis in San Antonio. I have a couple buddies that drill there though.

    Good to go , I was there with DET 1 1/133 as an FO briefly before going recruiting, chances are we know one another as I worked out of that armory for about 2 years before taking Liberty County as my area...

    I bet we do. I served with an FO from that armory a while back. I don't remeber his name though. My old platoon Sergeant was there last time I heard. he is a 1st Sgt now. Simpson is his last name.

    Moving to Katy, Copperfield Area. Any of you guys from Katy have an opinion of living near the intersection of hwy 6 and 529? I'm being relocated in Jan and have rented a house there. (close to the office)

    I'm hoping it's a safe area. The neighborhood where I'm renting looks ok, but I noticed that you don't have to go far to find some scary places. Part of the reason why I applied for my CHL.

    That is an overall good area. I have lived there since around 1982. it has grown VERY much. Copperfield is a very safe area. Some smaller areas around there do look scary, but nothing much happens out here. However, I do have my CHL for when, not if. Welcome to the area!!!!! I am around Fry rd. and Clay Rd. now. I grew up around 529 and Fry.

    Hwy 6 and FM 529 (Copperfield area) isn't in Katy though. Katy is maybe 10-15 miles southwest-ish. Copperfield is northwest Houston.

    I grew up there, back when that was all farm and open land. When it developed it was all really nice areas. Over the years it changed as did the neighborhood I grew up in. I was blown away at how that area out there had gone down hill, but like you said, there's pockets of good and bad.

    Welcome to Houston where zoning was a 40 year after thought.

    For example, my sister and her family live in a neighborhood where homes sell for (keep in mind this isn't Kali and we're not on the bubble most of the country is) $400k to $700k that sits on the site of what was a nasty drug and crime infested apartment complex. Outside their 10' wall is both an old apartment very low income complex and 50-75 years old homes on large lots selling for market then being torn down and having new homes built. Over one wall they have a large commercial facility. And people beg to buy in there because of the location. Go figure.

    Welcome to Texas!

    thanks guys. The area is just south of 529 and just east of Queenston. It's a rental for a year until we figure out where we want to buy. Got to sell my house in SA. Regards!

    SA = San Antonio? DOH! For some reason I thought you were moving from Kalifornia. :p So ignore the Kali and other parts of my rambling post.
