Default Truck wouldnt start...what to look for

Got in my truck after work and it wouldn't start. All the lights come on and fuel pump is priming. But when you turn the key to start, nothing. I would assume it's either the starter or ignition switch.

Any thoughts to steer me in the right direction?

1991 f150xlt 5.0.

Check your connections. battery, starter, solenoid, grounds.
There's a small wire going either to your starter or solenoid on the fender (depending on your setup, I'm not 100% on your year) that should get power when you turn the key to start.
If you're dealing with wet or (like me) snowy conditions, it'll probably be a bad connection.

Yeah it's done this before but usually a second or third try and it would start. Sometimes if I hold the key in the start position for a extra few seconds it would eventually start up.

I'll check it out tomorrow.
