Greetings!! Found y'all via the web, and am hoping to glean some knowledge (and a LOT of help) as I attempt to breath life into a 2000 Polaris Ranger 6x6 - I'll find the appropriate place for it and have at it shortly.....lol

About me....well, I'm an old Texas guy that's semi-retired. Spent 40 years in the water purification industry, doing everything from WFI (Water for Injection) and ultrapure water systems, to consulting with NASA (plus providing their lab water systems). I was blessed to be in an industry I enjoyed, but I finally decided it was time for "me", so I just packed it up one day and walked out.

In my "other life", I'm a life-long firearms lover - especially of 1911's. I have what many consider to be one of the most complete collection of Randall 1911 .45's outside of a museum. It was an obsession that took me over 32 years to finally complete, but I ended up with all 12 of their models (that they made more than 100 of), including the 3 "Southpaw" (left-handed) models. All in all, I've got 77 1911's in my collection, plus the usual (for Texas) assortment of long guns and some VERY short (and 100% legal) short shotguns.

I'm VERY active in the 2nd Amendment issues here in Texas, and serve as a state officer of the Texas State Rifle Association.

Retirement can be boring, so I expanded a side business I had for many years - residential water treatment - and keep busy enough with THAT to keep me out of trouble. I'll keep messing with it for a few more years, and ultimately turn it over to my oldest son to run and own.

I also run a small website - Texas Shooting Sports | YOUR home for straight talk about all things gun[/url] - anyone familiar with FB knows that it's played havoc with the internet forums, but I've personally found there's just too many BS artists on FB, so while I AM on FB, I prefer to do my "real" discussions on forums where folks can get to know each other better.

That's about it......thanks in advance for letting me pick your brains!!

Welcome aboard! Sounds like you have a bit of an affinity for firearms :D You're in good company here, we tend too "cling too our Guns and Bibles!" 1911s are pretty popular...

... and a bunch of others on how too best tote long guns in a Ranger!

When you make up your signature file for your 6X6, be sure to include a link to your web site - the system may make you wait until you 5 posts before allowing you to post a link.
P.S. If you happen to be in the Flint, MI area, stop by--they could use a little help with their water!

Yessir - the system done hand-slapped me on an early link post.....lol

Flint's a pretty sore subject to me......I spent my career ensuring that what I did was ethical and didn't harm anyone. The jerks that allowed Flint to happen should be tumbled in a tub of chopped pennies and gasoline.

Here's a couple pics of some of my stuff....one of the 4 safes, my suppressed 700 BDL, the "Shorty" 870's we build (oh, yeah - I'm also partners in an 07/02 gunshop), and my EDC - a STI Elektra.

Hey, guys....I'm back! lol

Not long after joining here, I got an offer for the Polaris I couldn't refuse, so I sold it and bought a Honda Rancher (ATV). I ran it for the ensuing 5 years, then took delivery on a '22 Ranger 570SP (midsize). I've also added another 30+ 1911's to the collection, and just added some custom made silver grips to my EDC.

My main question at this point -

1. where's the best place to get a GOOD extended warranty

2. Best place to buy a printed shop manual

3. Does anyone make a front receiver hitch for this rig yet?

And.....I present my EDC.....
