Back From Dayton Hamvention

...Completely wiped out. Gone. I picked up some first-rate geekery, which will show up here and there.

For gunnies: we started out by seeing a guy on a hammed out truck at a rest stop with ARRL, SkyWarn and Indiana State Rifle & Pistol Association stickers on the back window; the Massachussetts-plated one in the parking filed at Hara Arena with ARRL and NRA stickers was hear-warming, as where the two Lee reloading presses we saw for sale; but the icing on the cake was the vehicle with Maryland M16A1 tags.

...And that's without lookin' very hard!

Huge live-as-it happened photoblogging is ready for your viewing pleasure at Turk's place! I'll have more -- after I have slept. Today started around 0100. In the morning.

Glad to hear you had a good time!

I don't know that ham radio and guns necessarily go together, but that seems to be the way to bet. Possibly a self-reliance thing.
Note that the family name "Maxim" is significant in both worlds.

Great toys. I wasn't there.
