Looks like something surprised Kenn Blanchard and David Ridley (LWRCI) about this gun.

WOW! We met Randy Hofman, sand sculpturer, onsite at the Hyatt Regency , as he prepared a beautiful sculpture for a party that day.

Barb was enthralled to learn about the history of this area, which included being part of the Underground Railroad.

Cool products

Carrie found the Defender 24/7, and Barb thinks this would be a great device for women on campus everywhere, as long as it’s legal.

It connects to a 24/7 alert service through a smartphone app, activates with the push of a button and is small enough to hang from a keychain.” Pre-order only at this date. ($179)

Barb mentioned that if you’re going to have an AR, you need a sling for it and recommends a 1-point sling from Midway to get started. ($14.99)
