Congratulations on your Texas Leica! Here is how I use mine.
Light metering –
1. Sunny 16 guideline
2. Gossen Luna Pro
3. Compact digital
1. Kodak and Fuji 120 or 220 color print portrait film for weddings and portraits (ISO 160 for individual portraits and ISO 400 for group portraits)
2. ISO 100 or 200 black & white film (whatever I can find)
3. Fuji and Kodak 120 color slide film around ISO 100 (such as Fuji Astia or whatever is left in my freezer)
I develop all my black & white film (35mm, 120, 4x5, and 8x10).
I have a professional lab develop all my color print film (35mm, 120, and 220)
I develop all my E-6 color slide film (35mm and 120).
I use a Canon flatbed scanner that can handle 35mm, 120, and 4x5 film (color negatives, black and white negatives, and mounted or unmounted color slides).
I use a 9x16x13.5 inch hard case to carry:
1. Two “Texas Leicas” (6x7cm with normal lens and 6x9cm with wide-angle lens)
2. An L-bracket to mount my camera on a tripod in a horizontal or vertical position
3. Filters (polarizing and graduated neutral density)
4. Cable release
5. Light meter and/or compact digital camera
6. Right angle viewfinder attachment
7. Roll of string to tie branches out of my way
