Welcome!

You'll find a good community of RKBA proponents here with a wide demographic from reactionary right wing nuts to libertarians to self professed loony liberals. All of us are in agreement that there is no logical reason for the government to deny the law abiding citizen the means to defend themselves with firearms. You'll also find some of the best moderators herding the wet cats when they forget the place ain't a litter box.

Use the search feature often and you'll find out tons without some smart aleck pointing out a question's been answered before and share you're experiences because they're unique and we all can learn a little something.

Yeah, I did the PX4 G conversion. You can find the photos here:

It took a while to figure out how to get those decocker levers out. Came out great though. The slim levers which I bought form Brignoli convert the PX4 to a G model and don't have the spring or bearing which enable the safety feature. I prefer the G (decocker only) so I was motivated to figure it out.

I'll echo what hso said! This IS a great place for firearm enthusiasts of all back grounds.

I ask questions that are pretty dumb at times and get sincere, easy to read answers!! :O)

You found the right spot!

Hi, Ranger!

Welcome aboard. Since no one else has, I guess I'm the one who gets to inform you that that THR tradition dictates that the new guy gets to buy a round of beers for everyone! :evil:

No, not beer - Ammo!

I'll take 100 rounds of .30-06.

Are you close to central Texas?

There's alot of Texans on gun forums. I've been over at the Beretta Forum for a while and there's alot of Texans there too. Must be the great laws in this state. Just signed up for my first CHL class. Have to wait until 7 Jan. because they're full. Classes are 45 students each sat/sun. Can't even qualify until the following monday. Looking forward to it though.

Great gun laws in Texas? Well, not as good as up here (what's a "CHL class" btw), but getting better and that's what we like to see.:cool:

Welcome to THR, new friend.:)

Concealed Handgun License...........

I think El Tejon is just kidding you, age_ranger; Indiana -- my home, too! -- has no required classes for a carry permit ("License To Carry Handgun"), you just can't be a felon or spouse-beater. Fingerprints and a few dollars are all it takes. They're not so hot about open carry, however.

On the other hand, TX -- Plano -- has The Bullet Trap, one of the nicest indoor ranges I have ever shot at. I just happen to be in town, and went over there this afternoon. 18 lanes, things really are bigger in Texas. I like my home range but it's hardly a patch on that place.

Welcome, there are quite a few of us from the DFW area on here.

Wow, no CHL? I need to move there!! I was stationed not far from there a while back and all I recall were corn fields.......... BulletTrap is nice enough. Kinda pricey as far as ranges goes, but not bad. If you're in town again, gimme a hollar and we'll go recycle some lead.....!!!

age, yes, I was just kidding. Hey, it's the Errornet, have some fun.:D

Where were you stationed? Harrison? That's in the city. Grissom? That's up north in the middle of the woods. Crane? Down south in the hills and trees.

Yeah, I did the PX4 G conversion. You can find the photos here:

Great job! I haven't done it yet, but have about 1250 rounds through the PX4 now, and I think the slim levers are in my future ...


There's alot of Texans on gun forums

You guys need to get busy and SHOOT, not surfing the web! :neener:

I was stationed at Chanute AFB, Il. for my technical training. It's closed now....so is the town from what I've seen passing through a few years back.


Yeah, I admit I should be shooting alot more than I have been. I'll make up for that this week.
