    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.

    Texican

    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".

    I don't think John Wayne said Texian I'm sure he said Texican.

    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.
