Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Habemus Trumpem! I'm sitting here in Almaty, Kazakhstan, watching the whole thing. I was very impressed by his speech. He didn't utter the words, "I", "Me", or "My", even once that I could count. The Occupier-in-Chief would have made the entire speech about him, but our...

We are now in SINGLE DIGITS!!!!!

This has been set as my home page on my browser for longer than I can remember.

I'm sorry to say I'll be out of the country on the day he takes his last official flight out of the Yankee Capitol. I so wanted to watch it live.

Re: Charles quoted by Ayoob in March/April American Handgunner

Well, I don't get that magazine, so I won't be able to see the quote. Do you mind posting here?

(I hope his quote wasn't along the lines of, "Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms...sounds like a great party!!")

Don't let a crisis go to waste: Florida Airport Shooting

In light of the shooting at the Fort Lauderdale Airport, where: the gunman retrieved his firearm from a checked bag AND it is already forbidden to carry in the public area of an airport ... Apparently, there is there may be a renewed, "debate about whether to extend security screenings to publi...

Re: Houston West Quadrant Breakfast

I like the weekend idea also, because taking a morning off work, even Fridays, is a challenge.
Maybe we can set up a Saturday morning breakfast...

Recommendations for a suitable location?

Re: Hillary Clinton for New York mayor?

I would strongly encourage President-elect Trump to consider offering Secretary Clinton an ambassadorship. I believe it's high time the United States establish an embassy in the Republic of Nauru, and I believe Secretary Clinton would be perfect for this prestigious role. Nope - Benghazi or nothing.

Houston West Quadrant Breakfast

Given the lasting success of the Houston South Quadrant Breakfast, and the good fellowship we've had during those, is there any interest in starting one on the west side of town?

Re: Shooting at FLL today

I'm watching the news feeds on this, and I see an interesting thing that many of us would need to consider: Lots of passengers are walking around on the tarmac. Some are sitting there with their luggage. If I'm in that group, there is NO WAY that I'm accepting my luggage on the tarmac. If I've flown...

Re: Shooting at FLL today

If he was coming from Canada, most likely he cleared US Customs in Canada. Last time I flew in from there, we did. Same was true returning from Ireland. Thanks. It's not surprising that some things have changed since I quit flying probably 8-10 years ago. :tiphat: Yep, I've done it in Calgary and A...

Re: Shooting at FLL today

Is it legal to carry in the non-secure area of a Florida airport? I seem to recall seeing signs in Tampa and Orlando airports suggesting that it is not. It looks like you are correct. https://www.floridacarry.org/images/stories/airport_carry_map.gif https://www.floridacarry.org/issues/concealed-and...

Re: Shooting at FLL today

Now five are reported dead. Is it legal to carry in the non-secure area of a Florida airport? I seem to recall seeing signs in Tampa and Orlando airports suggesting that it is not. I travel to southern Florida via air a couple times a year. Usually, I fly in/out of PBI, but occasionally through FLL....
