Thought it might be good for all Okies to get together and tell a little about your self. I live in Panama and am Semi-Retired. I have my own Bookkeeping Corp. in Panama, and Operate a Ranch 4 Miles West. I have a 8 year old Grandson that does a lot of shooting, and quite proficient at it. The Wife, and I shoot a lot at the Ranch. I do most all my reloading. :)

Know there's got to be some more Okies on this Forum. If you don't want to tell about yourself, Post and brag a little about the State or location you live in. I live in Eastern Ok. (The garden spot of the nation). Also signs along the highway going south saying: The gateway to the mountains. West of Poteau. Ok. we have the Highest Hill in the World. The old Butterfield Stage Line runs through my Ranch. Just 20 miles to Ft. Smith, Ar. where Judge Parker sentenced all the Outlaws to hang. :D

I used to live in Oklahoma. Does that count? Went to school after the Army at Spartan School of Aernautics in Tulsa. Moved to Pawhuska then to Enid. Now I live in Missouri.

Hey, I lived in Burns Flat (where's that?) for a while, then moved to Hobart, and finally landed in OKC. Now I'm in TX, but have some fond memories of OK, and especially visiting the Grand Lake O' the Cherokees.

Grew up in the North Eastern corner of Oklahoma near Grove.
Went to a little three room school called Turkey Ford. It had 9 grades in it. Use to take my rifle to school if I was going home with a Friend for a sleep over. Always carried a sheath knife on my belt, as did every other fellow... Never saw a thing wrong with it. Still don't!
Those were the days when men where men, and women weren't!

Tenkiller is my favorite lake. Wister and Kerr lakes are too muddy. Like the hills around Tahlequah.

I live in Poteau now grew up in Wister so I'm not put off by the mud but I see why other people are. lol I also agree that Ruger autos are excellent pistols for the money never owned a P97 though I have owned the 345 and the P90.

I live at Panama. Stop by and I'll let you shoot a P97 and see how you like it. I work at Wiles Bookkeeping, Inc. across the highway from IGA. I'm also at the Sr. Citizens Center at 11:30 each day. Stop by and I'll buy you lunch.

I'm a native Texan, but I grew up 3 miles from the Oklahoma border in Denison, Texas. Lake Texoma used to be my stompin grounds, at least Colbert, Calera, and Durant. (On the Okie side) Now, it seems as if I've been banished to Minnesota. I've been here since 1994 and was stationed here as a Navy Recruiter from 86-90 before that. I like Turner's Falls, Lake Eufala and SE OK.

Eastern Oklahoma is like Eastern Texas. Lots of trees and hills. My In-laws from Lubbock would visit us and say," how do you stand so many trees and hills"? They would say that they felt like the trees was smothering them here. Told them that I didn't like West Texas because if I got the belly ache, I couldn't find a tree to hide behind. :D

Hey P97 and other fellow Okies, does this look familiar? Had a nice drive today to one of my favorite places.

Good Pictures. Make me wish that I was there to jump into that cool water. Went to the Indian Pow-wow at Talequah last fall and really enjoyed it. Might go again Labor Day.

Hello all! I am stationed down at Tinker AFB in OKC. Next month I move off base and will be buying my first firearm which will be either the Beretta PX4 or 90-two in .40 cal. Already applied and received my CCW from my state of residence (Florida) so I am ready to go.

Take care,
Jared
