    For such a large group of people, San Antonio has a poor showing. To put it in perspective:

    We had 13,542 visits from Texas in the past month, from 189 different cities.

    Houston - 1,856
    Austin - 1,636
    Dallas - 1,172
    San Antonio - 680

    And the Houston / Dallas figures don't include the major suburbs.

    Those of you in San Antonio, help us get the word out. Let me know if I can help you in any way.

    Haha. Yeah I agree, we need more people from SA. SA is such a big city, I'm surprised we haven't yet attracted more people.

    I will be visiting my favorite shooting range today (the bullethole). I'll be sure to, in my classic pushy and blunt way, tell everyone about this really cool website!!

    In all seriousness, I really am going today and I will do some advertising for this place.

    To be honest, I didn't know about the low numbers here in San Antonio! I would have figured with all the gun owners I always meet there would be a bigger turnout.

    Well I just got back. I didn't have enough time to shoot as much as I would have liked (100 rounds through my P228 and 50 through my P230). I did manage to talk to several people about the site though. Most of them are members of the Glock site but promised to sheck this one out. I forgot to put some kind of ad on the bulletin board though :banghead:, I thought of it on the way there. I will return on Friday and promise to put somthing up then.

    BTW allow me to share a pic of my P228....just cause I'm so proud of it!!

    Part of the issue in SA (and I live down here) is that a huge number of people live outside the city. I live very near SA, just outside of 1604, but I'm in a different county (Guadalupe). That may be part of the number issue.

    I do agree that we need more folks from here.

    I think most Metro areas have that issue, but for the purposes of this forum, i think those of us that live in the SA Metro area count as "San Antonio"...

    Maybe if you put a Spanish speaking section you would get more. Its always fun going into major stores and being greeted, "Hola! ¿Como estas?"
    stockFD3S,Why is it always fun? I don't see nothing funny. Granted we live in the United States and We are Americans,why do you choose to make fun of a foreign language? Would you still make fun if they said Bonjour ! Comment allez-vous ?
