Hello from deep South Texas. We are in the brush, so I can shoot stuff in my yard. If you can think of hell, think the armpit of hell. That is where I live. Been a firearms owner and shooter since I was 8 years old. My dad was a Chief LEO and avid hunter, so we always had firearms in ht house. Actually started collecting blades and firearms befoe I was out of high school. Been trading, repairing, and collecting firearms actively since 1976 at gunshows in Texas. Don't currently own an XD, but ya never know what turns up at the next gunshow, like in 2 weeks. I am not much of a poly frame gun guy, but I do have some now. Have plenty of everything else. More old time steel and blue or stainless, some military stuff, and SA/DA revos. But with more guns going to poly receivers, I have had to adjust. Will share what I know and am willing to learn more about firearms.
