Welcome from Griffin Ga.
Hi I am a retired band director from Laredo,Texas going for a second master's degree in special education with my veteran's benefits. I am an Army veteran served in the Vietnam War in 1968. Also went to Germany thereafter boy, that was fun in Germany that is as an Army bandsman. My second MOS was eleven bravo (infantry). I am so glad to be a part of this fine forum. Ever since I can remember I have been partial towards Taurus. I now have two 1911 stainless steel 45's with rails. These pistols are sure nice to have around considering the drug cartels are just across our border. I live in a border town that borders Mexico. Lately, there has been a lot of action across our border with the drug cartels filtering towards the American side. So I am prepared to do or die to protect my family.
Welcome from Griffin Ga.
Welcome from Lubbock, as close to the border as I want to live. Hope you have a good short barreled 12 guage to compliment the 1911's.

I was an immigration inspector in Laredo for six years until I transferred to El Paso in 2003.
My friends keep me updated and think it's tough in NL, until I remind them of what things are like in Ciudad Juarez.
We lived near Mines Road and my kids went to UISD.
I also like 1911s.
I call mine Bully.
Enjoy the forum.
