    Hello Team.
    I'm back again.
    No, I did not leave an open tab.*
    No, I'm not buying the pub a round of drinks.
    Yes, I'm broke.
    I'm married.

    anyhoo.

    I live in Virginia.
    Bloomberg Politicians are going full retard.
    And the Populace is not having their s___.

    I'm tired of making my argument in the Public Sheeple forums.
    Figured I needed to spend more time with like-minded people.

    Welcome back.  Always glad to have you.  It is kinda quiet around here, though.

    You're not a newbie, but welcome back anyhoo.  Lots of us are fairly quiet these days.

    Don't know what part of the state you're from, but the mood in these parts (out near the far western end) is . . . not good.  Lots of folks are fighting mad right now.  Local gun dealer is selling some more guns, but large quantities of ammo.  More folks than ever in my memory are expecting something.

    I'm going to be visiting there for work in a couple of weeks.  Should be interesting seeing things from a local perspective.

    Welcome.  Not nearly as active here as it was in times past, but all good people here, and far and away more civil than other places I've explored.

    Welcome! Traffic here has significantly slowed, but we still welcome new comers. Sadly, even I (as a former frequently active member) have found other more active pastures.

    The gas pumps are now self service and you have to turn off the lights when you leave, but the foundation still stands and once a month the grounds keeper checks on the place.

    There is a wealth of knowledge here and some of us are still loitering around.

    Make yourself at home  :cool .

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
    Ray Chapman, used to say that the 125-grain Magnum load’s almost magical stopping power was the only reason to load .357 instead of .38 Special +P ammunition into a fighting revolver chambered for the Magnum round. I agree. - Massad Ayoob

    Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.

    I think we are all quietly shocked to see a new member join.  We all think this place is great, but is definitely quiet.

    Welcome aboard as a neighbor to your north. If you ever get up to SLC drop me a line.

    Joined a while ago, but never did an intro.

    I currently work in Germany for the US Army as a civilian employee. Love it, but ready to move back to the states. Been here 5 years, which is about 4.5 too long. Not sure where I end up, but hoping to get myself to Redstone Arsenal in Alabama.

    Love this forum so far. I know it's small, but the content is top notch.

    We like it.  And your low key style fits in well around here.   :thumbup1

    If you are fortunate enough to land in or around Huntsville I think you will like it.  Its going to be a lot different than anyplace in Germany but that Tennessee river basin is fine country in its own right.  Before relocating to Arizona I lived for a time in northeast Alabama and recall it fondly.  I was working as a civilian party contractor on construction at Ft. McClelland when it was still operational and on days off would frequently grab a few hours fishing or hunting the area.  If not for the concentration of family here vs Alabama I would probably be there still.  Good luck with your career and future relocation plans.

    Before relocating to Arizona...

    Arizona was home for me for a long time. Where abouts are you?

    My home base is in Tucson. Been in Germany for 5 years though and only make it back to AZ once a year or so. Whenever I'm finally allowed, I'm going to head back for a few weeks. 2 in AZ and 1 in Huntsville so my wife can see what it's like.

    Well, travel safely - its crazy out there these days.  Where is you wife from?  Has she ever seen a desert up close and personal?  :hmm   

    I find that most people who've never actually seen Arizona still manage to have strong pre-conceived notions about it for some reason and when they actually do see it they are suitably amazed.

    Well, in that case she's probably going to find Huntsville pretty interesting.  Northeast Alabama, northwest Georgia and southeast Tennessee are their own kind of special.  Hard to get a real feel for it in just a week but I bet she will enjoy it.

    Yup.
    Lived in Chatta-vegas circa 95-97.    Definitely a unique place.
