    Yet Another Equipment Advice Thread

    Hi, Sorry for what is likely a thread that's been asked 1,000 times. Asking "Dr. Google" turns up old posts/articles and sites making money off of Amazon links, which only gets one so far. This site and forum looks to be well-informed and objective. I live in North Texas and am setting up...
