You can say that again on the price of ammo! I reload, and even the components for that have gone through the roof on price. a 25# bag of birdshot has gone from 18.00 a year ago to 42.00 today. Brass, primers, rifle and pistol bullets - they've all gone sky high!. Fortunately I have a decent reserve loaded in most calibers, so I'm just loading enough for day to day use now.

Hello, I joined today.
I have read B H M for years just recently ordered a yearly subscription.
I spent years when I was a kid in East Texas (Huntsville area) I now live in the Hill Country not too far from Austin.
As far as the question State or Country??
I wish we were Country, think of all the great things Texas has to offer everyone else
NASA, oil, Dell, Motorola, National Simi-conductor
The largest cancer research hospitals
A&M, UT, Baylor, Rice
Texas National Guard
Texas Rangers
we're self-sufficient in beef,poultry,hogs and seafood
not to mention Chuck Norris
anyway I guess you can tell I love Texas.
I hope to meet some like minded folks here

Texas had to give up that right to regain their statehood after the Civil War. It took several years to work out the deal.

Central Texas Here. About 5 miles or so to Ft. Hood or 1 mile if you talk about radar mountain.

I did not know that Texas gave up their right to secede. Obviously I was not around or I would have stopped that decision I have always held on to the hope that someday we would get brave enough and become a country. Now I am really heart broken. :'(

Any other Central Texans out ther tonight?

I don't post often, but do check in from time to time. I'm from the Texas Panhandle, Dumas, Tx to be exact -- 50 miles north of Amarillo. I suppose I'm about the only forum member from these parts. Regardless, Texas is the greatest nation in North America.

Walking Tall,

I was born in Spearman TX. That's way up there in the Pan Handle. Was just up there a couple of months ago. I love the wide open spaces up there and the lack of fences

Yeah, you gotta love Texas.

I'm from the great state of (West) Texas, one of the five or more distinct parts of the "whole 'nother country," but I'm currently exiled in extreme western Maryland-- sigh, the things we'll do for granddaughters. They're all 'bout grown now so I'm thinkin' maybe to go back home only this time I'll settle for East Texas 'cause I've gotten to like the rain, forest, and greenery. Only thing that might hold me up on the way back would be a small part of "almost heaven," 'casue the hillbillies in West Virginia are wonderful folks in a beautiful place. 'Course, it ain't Texas....
