I'm catching an Air Force hop to Colorado Springs in the morning. I checked with the people that maintain the flight manifest on how to best bring my Sig with me. They said as long as I declair it and have it empty and in a locked case it's ok. I grew up in Colorado Springs but I've heard that lots of people from the land of fruits and nuts have moved there.

Hummm... I think the resident used the wrong end of the shotgun but at least the BG was stopped. I only hope he "sees" (with the remaining eye) the error of his ways!
