I just had a revelation after reading SteyrAug's post on "Who is AR-15" and his comment that we all seem to get along...why don't I post a "Looking for Work" topic!?!?! I am looking for a new job in the Houston area (where I live), and thought maybe some of the Houston people might read this and can put me on to some opportunities. Maybe I can even find a new shooting buddy. My qualifications/experience? In short, I have an MBA with about 8 years experience in Product Marketing as well as Sales in the software industry (some oil and gas industry mixed in). Honest, hard-working, and above all else...a family man that puts family first. If you want more info on me, just email me at "tailgate@ev1.net". Please tell me a bit about your company and job requirements. If you are a "Head Hunter"...go ahead and contact me as I am willing to hear what companies you are tight with. Hope I get some replies. And heck, maybe we can go shooting at lunch some day!

BTT Falcon2: Well, blue collar/white collar/no collar...it doesn't matter. I guess I am considered "white collar" due to my profession...but the days of me wearing dress shirts daily and ties are GONE. They would have to pay me an obscene amount of money to get me to dress up in a monkey suit everyday--that's why I enjoy the software industry. "Dressing up" for a client is Dockers and a Golf Shirt.

GI...That wouldnt be J&R (new name and owners)on 1266 would it? If so, our towns are very close.

A little off topic... but I am going to houston next week on an interview/recruiting trip and wanted to know what areas to check out If I decided to move there. I would more than likely be working downtown but want a nice place to live without spending a lot of time in traffic..somewhat close to the nightlife ? Thanks

Hello GI Brat. I am on the North West side of town. Do you do any fishing out there in Texas City? I was raised up in Pasadena. Do a lot of fishing in Galveston. What rang do you use?

Sorry tailgate I'm a little off topic too but I just got a job there and will be moving to Houston this week. I only had a few days to find a place to live. What do you Houston people think of the Jersey Village area? It looked ok when I was there. Thought I'd rent for a while until I get things settled and know the area better. I'll be working down town so anybody that wants to give me advice on ranges would probably get a free lunch.

hey that range in 1266 is it called Clear Creek gun range? I'm in clear lake. I grew up here, just graduated college and back home bored outa my mind. So I just bought 1000 rounds of ammo and go there everyday now. If you want nightlife live near 610 and 59 if you got the money. Tailgate, have you looked into the space industry? If you don't mind a lot of yuppies, it's not the best paying and there's a lot of beauracracies working with NASA, but it's fun. I interned at Lockheed Martin a few years ago. Clear Lake is growing at an obscene rate.

BTT OK GUYS...Can we PLEASE keep this to my topic? I really need a job! :) Actually, I didn't realize Houston had that many gun ranges and I've lived here all my life! So, I guess there is some benefit to going off on tangents...

Realist hemsted hyw. and 290 are one and the same that fare out. The hot wells rang is right off the fedder road, about 10 minets frome my house. P S. you caught any fish this year?
Link Posted: 7/9/2001 7:22:37 PM EDT
GI Brat, I used to shoot at Bailey's alot many years ago. Is it still relatively quiet out there? The one off HWY 6 that you mentioned may be American Shooting Centers off HWY 6 and Westheimer (the first one on realist list) realist, the range that used to be off Old Richmond and Hwy 6 closed years ago. They started building alot of houses in the area and the range lost out. I think it was called Southwest Rifle Range. CH

Well, I guess my topic got shot to $&!*. So here goes... You forgot "Bayou Rifles Club"...it's a private club with private ranges. Don't know THAT much about it. As for BAILEY'S HOUSE OF GUNS, I shot there a few weeks ago for the first time in MANY years. Hated the place. The people are fairly rude, must load your AR-15 from the ejection port (1 round at a time rule), and they only have a 100 yard range. AMERICAN SHOOTING CENTERS has the following distances for rifle (in yards): 25 (I believe they'll let you shoot a rifle at 25), 50, 100, 200, 300, 400, 600. Very nice facility, but I suspect the pricing is a little high (haven't shot there myself, but driven by a few times on my lunch break).

Falcon2.... Thanks, fishing is great this side of town.... No fishing this year yet.. my boat is getting a new floor and a bigger engine... Chazz... thank you... its been since 1985 since I've shot there... Baily's sucks.... I couldn't believe the sign saying only one round allowed.... Been there one time, wont go back....

Falcon out.

REALIST: You forgot one of the best places in Houston area to shoot handguns...Marksman Indoor Range in South Houston (right off Hwy 3 and Monroe intersection). I love Marksman for handguns...just raised price to something like $7 but it's unlimited number of pistols, no time limit, bring in your own ammo (or even reloads) as long as it's not CCI Blazer. Best of all, Monday nights are "Ladies Night" where women shoot free.

OK, there are 3 major concentrated areas of nightlife in Houston: North Downtown (clubs, theaters, dressier), Rice Village (bars, college crowd, relaxed), Richmond Strip (many open air bars, titty bars, very relaxed but trashy). If you're going to work downtown live inside loop 610 or around the Galleria at very furthest. If you don't you'll curse the day you ever decided not to. As far as shooting ranges I know of, I usually go to American Shooting Center off of Hwy. 6 & Westheimer, near the Nat'l Guard Training Center. It's outdoors, not too expensive, and as long as you follow the rules and don't act like a jackass, they're pretty open minded. Last time there, there was a guy unloading w/ his pistol grip shotgun on a target about 15 feet away, w/ no complaints from the range guys. The rifle range has some good distances and spotting scopes behind each bench. There's also an attached skeet shooting center if that's your thing. Jobs? Check out www.houstonemployment.com Usually a good list there.

Tailgate.... thanks.. I wasn't aware of that one..... I was mostly posting ranges that allowed rifles.... Falcon... I saw the ad for the gun show.... Except I Loath the astro hall when it comes to gun shows for the fact they don't allow selling ammo..... Is this the hall or the arena?
Link Posted: 7/11/2001 7:31:56 AM EDT
Hello Houston area people. The gun show this weekend will be at the Brown C.C. High Caliber is putting it on and it is normally a pretty good show if you can find a place to park. Anyone going?
Link Posted: 7/11/2001 10:34:35 AM EDT
Gun Show possibly but just got the first $300 electric bill of the summer. Ouch! Yeah and the $300 million for the stadium naming rights is not being borne by the consumer.
Link Posted: 7/11/2001 3:34:02 PM EDT
Gorge R Brown, I will be there.
