Welcome to the GTA Membership
« on: April 17, 2018, 12:33:46 PM »
Hello everyone. My name is Thurmond Moore owner and operator of the T3P Ranch and Airgun Solutions as well as a new venture that came about as a result of the changes in Texas Hunting regulations ... T3P Ranch Airgun Only Adventures. I am a small and mostly unknown company at 33 Degrees, 25 minutes,53 seconds North Latitude by 100 Degrees, 55 Minutes, 46 Seconds West Longitude. If you look on Google maps you will see that my location is directly in the middle of nowhere. lol 

There are VERY few airgunners in this area and it is populated mostly by ranchers and dry land farmers who predominately are powder burner shooters. I have been an avid airgunner since I sold quite a few bushels of peaches back in the middle 1960's to buy my first Daisy BB gun. A year or 2 later my Granddad who incidentally shared the same name (I am actually the III) purchased me a Benjamin 342 and my love of airgun hunting was on its way to where I am now.

The time in between was filled with working as a equipment maintenance technician and equipment engineer technician in the Semiconductor Fabrication Industry which took me all over the Western USA. I returned to my family's ranch in 1995 with my EPA certification to work on refrigeration equipment but due to technically unforeseeable circumstances I had to quit that endevour and went to work for the local Telephone Cooperative in charge of all things involving the internet (remember dialup? I sure do). After 12 years at that I decided it was time to take over the ranch since my dad had passed away and the ranch was sitting idle.

I discovered PCP's about 3 years ago now which revived my interest and addiction into airguns and started me into developing relationships with a fair number of importers and wholesalers.  I still run a few cattle but with continued droughts and my love of airguns I started selling a few airguns and related items to try to supplement the income from cattle and hunting day leases for quail and dove. That pretty much brings my history up to date. I hope to have a great and successful growing airgun and airgun hunting business. The GTA management has graciously given me this Vendor Gate and given me the opportunity to communicate with a large audience which will hopefully grow my business beyond my wildest expectations.

Welcome to everyone.

Thurmond has actually been a member here for 2 years. :)
BUT, his venture this deep into airguns is just taking off. We will be making a formal announcement but I'll use this post and opportunity to say congrats to Thurmond and T3P Ranch AGS for the addition to the GTA sanctioned vendor club. We are very proud of him and what he does and will do for the airgun community and GTA Forums. A GREAT addition IMO.
So, please join me in welcoming T3P Ranch AGS to the elite GTA vendor family!!! Support him and let's see where we can go together.
Be sure to check out his website here...http://www.T3PRanchAGS.com
And as always....
SAFE & Happy Shooting!!!!

Although I've never met Thurmond in person we've communicated back and forth via PM's, Email and an actual phone call or two. He's a very trustworthy man that I've dealt with a couple of times. We live in the same neck of the woods.... well within 150 miles anyway. Which in the desert southwest ain't nothing. Don't hesitate to give him a shout if your looking for something air gun related. I know he'll treat you right.

Thanks everyone for the welcome. It has been tough going here in the Boonies with no local clientele (mainly because of no local population either lol). Hopefully that will be changing soon!
The old adage of "if you build it they will come" is not exactly true. You also have to let someone know you built it!  ;D
