A BIG 'Hi' to all! I just joined MO a few days ago. I was born and raised in Central Texas. After my better-half died in 2006, my son and I moved to Idaho to be near my daughter, son-in-law, and grandson. Been here since March, 2007. I'm a gun lover. My dad started teaching me to shoot an old Remington .22 when I was almost 6 years old. A bolt action that had to be cocked after loading. I had trouble pulling the 'knob' as we called it, enough to cock it. Since, I've had bb, pellet, .22, .223, 7.5 (?), .410, 12 ga., etc. Will try to post pics later of what I have now. I really love living here, although I DO miss TX a lot.
