Hi Y'All...

Any of you Texicans live in the Canyon Lake/Bulverde/Boerne/New Braunfels area ?

You know what they say..... If you have to ask......

Texican generally refers to a Texas citizen that would be happy to see the state secede from the Union :)

Another definition would be a native Texan with Mexican ancestry, not used quite as often.

The men who sought to liberate Texas from the Mexican dictator Santa Anna were commonly referred to as "Texicans" (whether of Spanish, Anglo and native descent). After Texas independence, the more commonly used term became Texan...

I am a Texican, living in far north San Antonio!

It's been a looong time since I took Texas history, but I thought that word was 'Texian'.

I'm a displaced Texican living among the heathens in New Mexico. :p

Not true. They were known as Texians, not "Texicans".

I know because my Great X 3 Grandpappy renounced his Prussian citizenship to be a Texian, and later backed that up at Bexar and San Jacinto.

That would be me! Right smack in the middle of tourist land.

Schlitterbahn is just a few blocks South, Gruene Hall is just a few blocks West, Canyon Lake is just a few short miles to the North of me and the Guadalupe river is just a couple hundred yards from my back door.

Best of all Deitz gun range is 5 minutes from my house.

I'm going to be in that area for the month of January.

Thought it would be fun to meet some of the Texican THR gang - maybe get together for some great food at the Smokehouse Restuarant (just west of the intersection of I-35 and Texas 46 in New Braunfels).
Might even have to raid the Retama racetrack or pour a wee dram to toast the Economy if there is anything left of it.

Hi TimC...

Been to all those places. Was trying to think of the name (Dietz) of the gun range. I'll be staying at a place on River Road near the "Chute".

Texian here, yes its spelled right... My family has been there since the 1780's. Currently reclaiming the old Republic lands here in CO...
Texican: Family lived there since Mexican rule.
Texian: Lived there since Spanish rule.

You will be very close to me. When you going to be here? Maybe we can burn some ammo. I have a toy or two at my disposal just let me know your preference in firearms. I have acquired a little of pretty much everything since I have fairly eclectic taste in firearms.

Deitz gun range is just down HWY 46 towards Boerne about 4-5 miles outside of New Braunfels. Pistol range to 25 yards and rifle range to 200. $10 range fee for non-NRA members $8 for NRA member.

New Braunfels Smoke house is gone and just an empty lot now. A lot of other places around so excellent food is still to be had. I don't know how long it has been since you have been here but this town is growing at light speed.

Hi TimC...

I can't get over the loss of the Smokehouse. Geez.:(

Probably have to hit that similar place in Gruene.

:uhoh: I hope they haven't closed that cigar shop just off the square in New Braunfels.

It's a deal! If you've got a .22, I'll furnish the ammo.:)

Will be there the whole month of January.

Elkyote-
Do tell. I haven't heard of a new gun shop. Since Boggus shut down we've been storeless save Walmart. I did hear that they are putting an academy in next to the Super Target at I35 and McCarty.

Shawnee, something tells me that you'll still be able to find good barbeque and good Mexican food in South Texas.....

There are still at least 4 good BBQ places in New Braunfels. There are also some very nice upscale restaurants that have popped up in the last few years if you decide you want some dining of the finer culinary delights.

The cigar shop in the square is still there so all is not lost. :D

And you DANG well better stay in Ohio through Nov 2nd and vote!! Win or lose OH & PA (assuming you're not a BHO fan), at least we need to make a strong showing so the jackass cannot claim a "mandate".

Also, Shawnee, I feel compelled to issue a warning to you... remember, "Everything's Bigger in Texas" and that includes ammo, so that means that the guys who have rifles marked ".243 Win" down there - these will actually chamber and fire .30-'06!! The ones marked .30-'06 shoot .375 H&H mag! :eek: :p

That's just not true, even if I do have an AR-15 that shoots .50 cal. :D

Hello, I'm thinking it would be an interesting event if all available Texas members of THR converged on New Braunfels for a long weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday).

I'm thinking we could devote the daylight hours to shooting and the evenings to sampling the New Braunfels cuisine. Those two events will doubtless lead to other activities...;)

Thank you for the explanation. I was thinking it was an illegal living in Texas.

Art Eatman
October 23, 2008, 02:48 PM
Naw, Eb1, the generic name for illegals in Texas is "wet" or "wetback". Comes from "mojado", Spanish for "wet". Moja'o in Tex-Mex. Pronounced "moe-HOW".

However, once folks started sucking up most of the water from the Rio Grande, they don't have to swim all that much, any more. A ranch hand once commented to me that he and his wife had "walked" for some half-dozen years before they got their papers.

"Everything's Bigger in Texas" My brother told me a guy from his college days was bragging about how big his dad's Texas ranch was in that: "It takes all day to drive from the ranch house to the north fence."

My brother told him, "Yeah, I have a car like that, too." :D

Gotta love Texas!

I dunno 'bout that... New Braunfels is semi-Civilized. We may all have to meet at Art Eatman's house. Another advantage to that is Art will provide all the food and drink.

Sure, c'mon down. It's only about 450 miles from New Braunfels. Go to SanTone, turn right on 90; when you get to Alpine, turn left on the only paved road to the south that there is.

Take the next paved right*, and it's five miles to the GhostTown turnoff. See ya on the Porch.

Plenty to eat, if you like javelina stew.

:D, Art

* Okay, I'll be nice: It's 80 miles.

What are the four? Granzin's is the only one I have been to. I am always on the lookout for good BBQ.

Shawnee,

You oughtta make the drive one day to Lockhart for Smitty's, Kreutz's, or Black's or Luling to go to City Market for a little smoked meat paradise.

I'm just of east of San Marcos in Martindale.

There is a great gun shop in San Marcos now. It's called THE BUNKER and it is on the corner of 123 and Wonder World.

They specialize in full auto, but have tons of Semi's. I use them for all my FFL transfers.

Robert gave me a super sweet deal on my PS90, and has always been friendly to me.

I can't vouch for The Bunker enough.
