The conversations among gun bloggers by email have already scared Para's management a little; I think they may be wondering whether this was a good idea, after all. Time will tell. Personally, I just want to shoot with Jarrett. I doubt things will get any more subversive than salty language and toilet humor.
If you don't hear from me again, the TSA has me in a re-education camp. Remember me as a peacemaker. I have the SIG locked up tight in a hard case, and I transferred all the ammunition to a factory Winchester box (even though my plastic ammo case would actually protect the primers better, it doesn't seem to be allowed.) The magazines, holster and mag carrier are in my checked bag. I think this all passes muster, but we'll see when I get there.
Special thanks to Laughingdog from the forums for giving me a place to stay tonight! This guy has no idea who I am, but he offered to pick me up from the airport. Of course, for all I know, he could be a slavering serial killer with a fat-guy-centered psychopathic complex, but life is all about managing risk, right?
I'm going to miss my family, but my parents are taking the boys tonight, so at least My Bride will have some peace and quiet. Besides, I left her a little surprise so she'd know I was thinking about her. :)
