Austin, despite being kind of a liberal hole, has some good gun shops and some ranges nearby.

Here is what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about folks from Texas


If someone in a Lowe's store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you may live in Texas ;


If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you may live in Texas ;


If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you may live in Texas ;


If 'Vacation' means going anywhere south of Dallas for the weekend, you may live in Texas ;


If you measure distance in hours, you may live in Texas ;


If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you may live in Texas ;


If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both unlocked, you may live in Texas ;


If you carry jumper cables in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you may live in Texas ;


If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph --you're going 80 and everybody's passing you, you may live in Texas ;


If you find 60 degrees 'a little chilly,' you may live in Texas ;


If you actually understand these jokes, and share them with all your Texas friends, you definitely live in Texas .


Here are some little known, very interesting facts about Texas :


1. Beaumont to El Paso : 742miles


2. Beaumont to Chicago : 770 miles


3. El Paso is closer to California than to Dallas


4. World's first rodeo was in Pecos , July 4, 1883.


5. The Flagship Hotel in Galveston is the only hotel in North America built over water. Destroyed by Hurricane Ike - 2008!

6. The Heisman Trophy was named after John William Heisman who was the first full-time coach at Rice University in Houston .

7. Brazoria County has more species of birds than any other area in North America .

8. Aransas Wildlife Refuge is the winter home of North America 's only remaining flock of whooping cranes.


9. Jalapeno jelly originated in Lake Jackson in 1978.


10. The worst natural disaster in US history was in 1900, caused by a hurricane in which over 8,000 lives were lost on Galveston Island .


11. The first word spoken from the moon, July 20, 1969, was " Houston ," but the Space Center was actually in Clear Lake City at the time.


12. King Ranch in South Texas is larger than Rhode Island .


13. Tropical Storm Claudette brought a US rainfall record of 43" in 24 hours in and around Alvin in July of 1979.


14. Texas is the only state to enter the US by TREATY, (known as the Constitution of 1845 by the Republic of Texas to enter the Union ) instead of by annexation. This allows the Texas Flag to fly at the same height as the US Flag, and Texas may choose to divide into 5 states.


15. A Live Oak tree near Fulton is estimated to be 1500 years old.


16. Caddo Lake is the only natural lake in the state.


17. Dr Pepper was invented in Waco in 1885. There is no period in Dr Pepper.


18. Texas has had six capital cities:

19. The Capitol Dome in Austin is the only dome in the US which is taller than the Capitol Building in Washington , DC (by 7 feet).


20. The San Jacinto Monument is the tallest free standing monument in the world and it is taller than the Washington Monument .


21. The name ' Texas ' comes from the Hasini Indian word 'tejas' meaning friends. Tejas is not Spanish for Texas .


22. The State Mascot is the Armadillo. An interesting bit of trivia about the armadillo is they always have four babies. They have one egg, which splits into four, and they either have four males or four females.


23. The first domed stadium in the US was the Astrodome in Houston .


Cowboy's Ten Commandments posted on the wall at Cross Trails Church in Farlie , Texas :


(1) Just one God.


(2) Honor yer Ma & Pa.


(3) No telling tales or gossipin'.


(4) Git yourself to Sunday meeting.


(5) Put nothin' before God.


(6) No foolin' around with another fellow's gal.


(7) No killin'.


(8) Watch yer mouth.


(9) Don't take what ain't yers.


(10) Don't be hankerin' for yer buddy's stuff.


Y'all git all that?


Lord, keep Your arm around my shoulder

and Your hand over my mouth.

Our Republic's Founders had it right. "To disarm the people is
the best and most effectual way to enslave them," warned George
Mason. Patrick Henry concurred, imploring future generations:
"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one
who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve
it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are
inevitably ruined.
