Ok, so my brother got a nice job after graduating, with haliburton, down in your great state. First he'll be in victoria for orientation and training, and about six months later he'll be in corpus. Hes interested in having a gun, and has enjoyed shooting mine several times. So I guess this is a two part post. The first is, some recommendations for living in the two above mentioned places (fun things to do, places to buy guns, places to hunt, places to avoid). The second, is a primer on buying guns in TX, and how he would be able to protect himself while out in the oil fields until he can get a CCW (both handgun and long gun). I guess third would be, does anyone have a glock 19 they want to sell him for when he gets down there next week? Thanks guys, I'll pass on whatever advice you can throw at me, and also encourage him to join up here and talk to you guys directly.
