Introduce Yourself / Hello from Houston
« on: May 15, 2013, 11:00:33 AM »
Hi,  I am a new member but not new to Texas.  I came to Texas originally in 1963 for my first assignment in the US Army at Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio (Medical Officer's Basic) and then move up to my assignment at Ft. Hood, Texas (1st Armored Division) where I soon became the Director of Marksmanship in the AMU for the 1st Armored Division. It was the best assignment I could have as my lifelong interest in competitive shooting was now my full time job and I got to run the competitive programs for the Division, picking the best for the Divisioin Team.  I also shot on the division rifle team but was in charge of the Pistol Team as well.

Enough about that period of my life.  Have lived in Houston since 1974 after assignments with Exxon Chemical to Andrews, Texas and Tyler, Texas.  Retired from Exxon Chemical in 1996 after 31 years.  My interests in shooting are still very strong but not on competive teams,  I shoot for the pure pleasure on the great rantes of Bayou Rifles where I got my NRA Range Safety Officer Certificate.  I also have my CCL license and have a fun collection of military rifles and more recently, pistols!  I am a big fan of FN rifles and pistols and own the SCAR 16, SCAR 17, P-90, FS 2000, a FNAR and a FiveseveN pistol.

It is my pleasure to have found this forum and to begin a fun relationship with fellow TEXANS,

Cheers,  RAT in Houston,  Peter
