Moving from Michigan
« on: May 22, 2019, 08:37:18 AM »
Former Canadian (yup, am American now) living in Michigan, now relocating to Houston area for a job.

Into all types of guns/shooting, Jeeps, scuba, camping, outdoors...

Will have some questions on getting my Texas CHL (have Michigan CPL).

Welcome from East Texas. That would just a little ways north of Houston BTW! What part of Houston you plan on moving to? When is the planned move and is it permanent?

Well beings you're from Canada and then will be from Michigan, that makes you a Texan by the second nature. There are two types of Texans. Those born here, and those who got here as fast as they could!  :th_thicon_lol:

What kinds of guns and shooting are you into?

Always wanted to move to TX, got close once, only a couple of hours away.

In the last 20 years I have lived in Montreal, Chicago, Oklahoma City, North Carolina, Detroit and finally Houston area. Sick of liberal/anti gun areas, so jumped on a job in TX.

Got into shooting when I was in the Canadian infantry (15 years full time and reserve). I am pretty much everything from precision long range (1k+), to 3 gun to plinking at the range. If it shoots bullets, I will play with it. Used to be into deer hunting when I lived in Canada, but have not done it in almost 20 years. May get into hog hunting since I am also into night vision.

Well Elwarpo, there will be no shortage of hogs for you to hunt here in Texas!

I was actually born in Colorado when my father was stationed outside of Denver in the Air Force. I was the only one of his children born outside of Texas! I was a little over a year old when he got transferred back to Texas, and have lived here ever since for the most part.

Texas for the most part is pretty conservative, as long as you stay away from the big cities! And even the liberals here are pretty much pro-gun for the most part! LOL!

A welcome shout out from Brazos county. In case you didn't know you can carry a handgun in your vehicle without a carry license as long as it's kept out of sight.
This gun is liberty; hold for certain that the day when you no more have it, you will be returned to slavery.

We in Texas always welcome another gun-loving conservative!  :rocknroll2:

Just out of curiousity, what type of work do you do?

I am a scientist (Chemistry related) mostly work in paint and coatings. So if you have paint/coatings questions feel free to ask.

Very interesting.  :th_thicon_idea:

I did a lot of painting in automotive and the industrial fields for many years. And many years ago. I still dabble in it occasionally though. Next project is a tractor my brother bought a couple of months ago. It is cosmetically challenged to say the least!
