I am not FROM Texas, but I do love Texas. I was stationed there from '96 to '97 in the Navy, Ingleside to be exact, which is not to far away from Chorpus Christi which is probably the most beautiful city I have ever visited. I have realitives in the Austin area, and plan to retire there someday. Austin is a rich clean fun town, with alot of nice people, and many places to visit, and lots of fun things to do. I try to go there every couple of years or so. I just got back from there last December. :cool:

Ha! I live in Grand Prairie and work in Mesquite! Maybe we could get together and talk about how evolution pretty much disproves the creation theory........ j/k :D

I had a flashback from the old threads! :p

Anyway.... I commute about an hour per day in the wonder DF/W traffic. Getting ready to do it right now, in fact.

Zbomber....could you do me a favor? I'm needing 100 points to get my sig. I donated 150 awhile back, but now I've decided to get a sig pic.

I was born in Arlington, but grew up in Longview. Graduated from SFA (Axe 'Em Jacks!!). Used to work in dowtown Fort Worth - loved the open bar on the roof down there (the Grotto, maybe?) and The Saucer (so much beer, so little time :( )

Live at Bragg now, but all of my family is still there. Wonderful country, Texas is.

A country all its own, as the travel commercials used to say.

I live in southern Oklahoma here.

If you're really talented you can throw a rock and it will land in Texas though. :p

Spent the first 12 years of my life in Austin, but haven't been there in forever.

And, Hotrod, I love your avatar. Marine Sniper is an incredible book. Just finished reading it.

Wow....someone actually knows what my avatar is. :D


Yeah, that is a great book.

Yeah, I saw that picture the other day (some sniper guide) and TOTALLY thought of you!

The Seeker

Yeah, it's just incredible. The first war book I've read that doesn't read like some old guy's war story. I had never even heard of Carlos Hathcock before, but, now, he definately has my respect and admiration, even if he is dead now. It wasn't just the shooting talent that set him apart, but his hunting/stalking abilities, which led to his kills. That part where he took out the VC General 500 yards from his mansion headquarters was one of the most intense parts in a book I've read.

And when he nailed that Apache lady, man, I actually said "Yes!"

D@mn good book.

XWING, hehe :D






heh what about

The Sniper vs Sniper part? Man...right in the scope. Bam!

The Seeker

Yeah, Hathcock was just seconds from death. That VC sniper was aiming right at him when he got blasted through the eye. Any slower on the draw and he would have been iced.

Just reading that book made me wanna run out and blast a few gophers at a hundred yards. (which I did.) :D

If you have never hunted gophers, you just gotta. It's just about the most fun you can have with a .22 There is no killing limit, you don't eat them, you just kill them and leave them for the hawks and eagles and coyotes.

And if anyone here is a animal rights *ahem* person, I don't kill em because of some bloodlust. Their holes are a hazard to my horses, so I wipe them out so they don't hurt my horses. :p

Ever see Enemy at the Gates? I have never wanted to be a sniper so much in my life!

Yeah, there are few things that are as satisfying as hunting your prey, setting up your shot, and then making everything fall together for a perfect kill. Perfect.

Well, at least the Great White Hunter has a justification.
