Ironhorse, I'm also a longtime gun nut. Just luv shooting and hunting and reloading, camping, motorcycling, etc. I'm a retired electrical contractor whose now working as a cabinet maker part-time for a shop that builds everything that goes into a Brown's Shoe Fit Store: checkout counter, displays, wall units, etc. If it's wood, (oak), we build it from scratch for the store, then go install it. Been to Minn, New Mexico, Neb. 82 stores in all. My wife and I have been looking at properties in the Cabool, Willow Springs, West Plains area for almost 3 years now. Just haven't found the right place yet. It has to be an acreage around 5-15 acres at the 'end of the road', so I can build a shooting range that won't bother anyone else. I'm a new member, March 2010, and check in on this site a couple times a week. Would like to hear from you again. Roger M.
