Welcome to the forum. Rules are to join in and have fun and play nicely with the rest of us kids. Other rules are in stickies at the top of the General and Technical forums.

That sounds dangerous. ;)

Welcome to the forum from another N. LA member. Looking forward to reading some of your posts. Wind farms? I have heard of growing rocks but not wind.;) Even though my wife's deer chili does produce a certain amount.....

Welcome to the ShootersForum, Tex. I'm sure you'll find lots of friendly folks on here with great answers to all of your shooting questions.

The wife and I hunted within a few miles of a wind farm this year...it was pretty neat watching them all spin around and thinkin' maybe with enough of 'em we'll pass on a better energy future to our children.

Welcome to the forum Tex!
Tell your wife not to shoot herself! It can't be that bad!
If you go up to the top of those windmills you have a bigger pair than I do! My hat is off to you.
