I do keep them in a safe, they are worthless if you loose them.
I do show them off like some snobby, spoiled, brat with his brand new Mustang
I do some gunslinging like the rifleman and Eastwood "Soviet"
I do not clean my sks's they run better dirty.
I do agree with U, I can't cary 10 in my pants.
Ya But, Ya But, U got some nice uns & cun only shout 1 at a time, like nagnat fan says U cant stuff 10 in yer shorts.
My unprofesal opiom is U only need 1 defenceive hand cannon & 1 for huntin, 1 defensive shotgunn and 1 fer huntin, 1 snipper riffle & 1 fer hunting
= 6 total guns is all U need.

Hello to all..hope you all are fine as frogs hair today.
In answer to post..what I dont do with my guns is...... ..is...thinkin.....is ...shoot them enough to my satisfaction and self expected proficiency...
Just got on tonight to answer posts about upcoming TX git together shoot. Ive been on this forum since right after my mother passed..11/13/09..and as some may or may not remember..I had been thinkin about gettin back into some 1911's and after graveside...wife said to go to show next day and walk (limp) around. She knew id been thinkin about a new handgun for a while.and I d been bed or chair ridden most of the previous year and half and what all.so I got a new to me...1911 gun.
Ive since received (right at xmas) a new.40 with a special story behind it that I am reserving for a special post.
Guess tryin to say Im from a large family tree that has always been keepers of multiple firearms per person/households.
AS im new to forum ..some little bits of history...my great grandfather John W. Owens..built and opened the first public walk in shooting galleries in Fort Worth. Guess there was a call for them in those (20's-30's) days. Ayway the weapons used were of a22 cal..dont remember make off hand , but do know they were 1st models that contained feed tubes thru stock and ejected spent thru bottom ...my uncle wound up with those, as he also ran a gallery in 50's. He has about 25 of em lined up in his wall to wall cases at the ranch and another 30 or so packed away, some still pristine in orig packing.
He aske dme while back if I would take several as he has his will pretty planned out but I have no us3e fir them other than history..when time comes..and he s out fore me..I thinkone will suffice for memories.
If you go to Greenwood Cemetary in FT Worth, John W."s Headstone dominates large plots he had foresiite tp purchase when Grnwood opened....evens places for wiffe and me left..anyway his large stone is engaved width wise with carving in detail of a rifle.I will take photo next visit.(hoping temp visit...ho ho he he)
He also (with 3 friends) was predominent in starting a little know old sport, whereas coyotes (bounties) were hunted by groups who would show up in their cars and trucks and proceed to hunt these coyote's using Greyhounfd dogs, specifically trained, to run them down.
Same gentleman was large cotton grower/rancher towards western Texas. Used migrant (illegals) for cotton.treated them and befreinded them well..this kept him in close scrutiny with Klan...
While living at one of his homes ..in Ranger TX...had man named "Jack Lake" on payroll...anyway..my moms mom was Lura...she had older sis's ALma / and Eva...note: Eva married my uncle Donald Winset..he was big Marathon man..helped invent fuel now as used in Jet egines and this allowed future oil royalties that help me/us get by.....(go google type donald winsett _patents..go from ther...) ANYWAY this JAck LAke was in local tavern bragging" hed slept w/Alma and Eva and when that little Lura was big enough..why he's have her too."...someone had slipt out and ran told John W...and he went towards Tavern...this Jack was comin down street and got close and waved HI...and GRanddad emptied cylinders and killed him like a dog inthe street. Wouldnt have even been grand jury I was told ,cept for clan..but was nobilled sameday anyway....
just talkin and typin..I really like seein post's and wish sometimes I knew more personaly the people here and about em more..one reason Im so looking forward to this upcomin TX meet (tentative now for 03/07)...
hope not borin yall...sure read all who type in the General Dis area...and appreciate any who listen to this old man who types at night....
thinnkin about asking if we could have a history post or area that we could have provided bio's as would be provided...I know this is a firearm forum..im glad and wouldnt change that for anything as I myself learn somethin new bout arms every visit. But I guess Im tryin to say I also like to think of it as the TFF or "the freindly forum"..
Maybe ill put agood history bios on word(tm) and paste it some nigth..not to brag on any item but to share my memories....so proud of many things and opportunities Ive had (and my god wasted..)....
my family history(s)...my service...chance to be on design team of Tandy TRS80..1st z80 personal pc..has allowed me to stay on top (digital) since..my corrections work...fence perimeters for half Fed BOP and 146 state institutions...digital cctv history...my guitar/singin past...friend of Willies..etc...but now the only thing I really live for and keep goin for is to help raise and enjoy my two precious grd daughters...ive been given a chance to make up the time(s) ive lost concerning my daughter..
wife just peaken in and ordered me (she's on short list of those that can) to get off and leave people alone..
