TexasCHLforum's Birthday Today

#1

Post by Charles L. Cotton » Thu Dec 22, 2011 11:40 am

At 7:42 pm tonight, the TexasCHLforum will be 7 years old. Thanks to our Members and Moderators who have made the Forum a unique online community and an excellent resource. When I launched the Forum in 2004, if someone had told me we would reach 10,000 Members, I would have thought they were smoking those no-name cigarettes.

Thanks folks!
Chas.

Happy Birthday!

After moving to Texas (for the second time) from Florida in '94, I had to put my EDC weapon away. Finding this forum inspired my wife and I to to obtain Texas CHLs and take more responsibility for our safety.

Thanks to Charles, the moderators, and contributing members for a great forum.

Congrats! One thing I must say is that I _love_ this community. Sure, every once in a while folks get a little snippy, but there's a clear esprit de corps that I have NEVER found on other forums.

Lots of stuff has been discussed in those seven years from the ridiculous to the sublime. It's been a great ride.

Thank you, Charles.

And YOU are responsible for me being here (whether a good or bad thing). ;-) Thank you for directing me.

It has been six years ago since we met at the CHL class and you told me of this forum. It has been a great source of information and camaraderie over the years.

Happy B-day TexasCHL and thanks to Chas. for starting it.
