Welcome aboard from east Missouri! I moved from Grapevine, TX in 1995 when it was a very small sleepy town. We used to attend the Opry on Friday nights. And we liked to hang at Willhoites for Supper, or just a cold one. I hear it’s no longer the sleepy little town I loved. Regardless, I miss it. Welcome to the Forum, it’s great to have a fellow Grape Fest Fan!

Welcome from SE. Florida...I also got my first 1911 around 1958..Got it from the DCM for 16 or17 bucks..Sent right to the house..
How times have changed..I also remember taking my rifle to school on the trolley car to shoot on the rifle team..
We always had fun with the teachers showing our rifles to them.. Very proud of my Winchester..
