Niiice! Many thanks! Will be brand new to the TX area, so I think my bigger challenge will be finding places to shoot, including longer distances. I understand that there are not too many ranges IN hill country, and they are somewhat limited in distance.Global ordinance is where I buy my inexpensive $5 mags. They go on sale at that price but are normally only about $6-$7. Last sale I bought 25 of each AR & AK 30rd mags and a dozen 1911 mags!
This is the link
Here are the 1911 mags ( these work better in my Rock Iskand than pro mags do)
Welcome to freedom!
Welcome to Texas! We did the same a number of years ago from my birth State of California for much the same reasons you are leaving Massachusetts. We settled in the Texas Hill Country just northwest of Austin and just love it. We are on the large Lake Travis and although we are in serious drought conditions there is still a lot of water around the Hill Country Lakes and Rivers.Hi. My wife and I have lived in a number of places across America, but all at the behest of the companies I've worked for (other than where I was born, of course). I retired at the beginning of this year, and the FIRST thing we decided to do was to get the "heck" out of the people's republic of Massachusetts! We visited several "red" states, looking for the right fit. Decided on the hill country of TX. My home went onto the MLS early this AM, and we should have it sold in short order. Once the deal closes, we're out of here. A close friend in another free state congratulated us and referred to our relocation as "moving to America".
We're tired of being surrounded by people who think they're better/smarter than we are, and that we're actually evil because we don't think the way they do. In MA, the only place we were surrounded by free thinking friends was at the Rod and Gun Club near our home. Hope to establish new friends in TX, and get involved with a new club or two where we can indulge in shooting sports and precision handloading without being thought of as the reincarnation of Nazis. Hope to also continue learning about firearms/shooting/loading from members of Texas Gun Talk as well!
