Hey guys, been browsing here for a while but just finally registered. I am a rehabilitated gun nut just getting back into it. I used to own quite a few growing up but went in the Marine Corp in 1996 and being in NC and living on a base it wasn't an easy thing to do purchasing or storing them.
Once I got out in 2007, I hung around out there for a while self employed as a mechanic doing 1099 work on hot rods but the shrinking economy drove me back to Tx in 2008 where I ended up doing the same thing here .
I found this place looking for trigger mods for my Springfield 1911a1 and this place is just a wealth of information so I figured I would register.
I was inspired by a boss I had while working in Beaumont; he was born & raised there, & he said to me, "Son... no matter where I am in my house, there is always a gun within arm's reach." He said a lot of other memborable stuff, too, like, "I'm supporting you boys like a mink-lined jock strap," and such...
