Shooterman checking in, folks. Old Curmudgeon extraordinaire. Born and raised in SE Texas. Basically conservative with strong libertarian ( small L please ) roots. Actually, I consider myself of the Old Right, hence my sig pictures of Bob Taft, Barry Goldwater, and Ron Paul. Family dates back to before The Revolution. They eventually moved to East Texas in 1850, and I live about a 100 miles south of the original homestead, of which I still own a portion. Any questions- feel free to ask. I see Si Modo here as well as Zander. Probably others I may know, as well.
