    Ah.  Yes I think I remember that now.  My other two servers are in Dallas. 

    My mistake.

    Maybe we should move to Dallas.  Atlanta just seems to be a big target for a lot of reasons.

    I agree. As much as I love the website of We The Armed, if the actual brick and mortar site moved to Dallas, it would be a much shorter drive for me to visit.

    I can see it now  :cool.

    Cobalt chrome actually. and I'm a trained and certified welder, TIG, MIG, stick. aluminum, stainless, carbon, basically everything but the crack of dawn and a broken heart.
    so naturally, I got a job making cast cobalt chrome dental partials.

    Agreed. Wish we had a "swoon" emote, because they are pretty much the best. Sure you'll find the occasional vegan, antivaxxing, Austinite; but for everyone of them you will find three young women who are polite, intelligent, and if they are not 21 yet, chomping at the bit to get their concealed carry permit. They don't play fair when it comes to stealing hearts  :cool.

    Just the other day I was joking about moving to Texas just to try and court one Ali Carricker.
    I'm kidding, because she has 3 brothers including a Matt Carricker, as in demolition ranch Matt, and I'm dedicated to at minimum 5 years here where I am now. And it's probably going to be more like 20 years.

    At the risk of unsolicited preaching and epidemic thread de-rail, here goes:

    I know you said you were joking but looking back over the past 50 years, it passes waaaay too quickly to wait. To do anything. Whether it be "the" girl, going after your dream career, racing the Dakkar Run, becoming a Navy SEAL, what have you, get out a pad and pen and make a plan then make it happen. The months then the years then even decades begin to fly by. The caveat would be if you have kids. Then your plans may have to be scaled back. The kids come first. But the second our last one walks out the door Julie and I are on his heels with bags packed for parts unknown.

    Oh, my friend, we've already detailed this thread so hard its making national news.

    I do have a plan, but it involves building a career where I'm at, getting a 1970 maverick, stuffing a suped up Ford 300 in it, and then trying not to die.
