Hi, I am a Brit living in France, but have lived and worked in Texas (and still do very occasionally). I have been a competed at Bisley for many years until my goverment, who at one time could not give me a gun quick enough decided that private citizens may no longer possess pistols and revolvers. I now operate my business and reside in France, where I can still shoot. If anyone wants the prospective from this part of Europe I would be glad to assist. There is a lot to say for a Republic!
