    He is correct. All the assault rifles were arrested and are now doing hard time in a Maine prison. The rest of the firearms have been well behaved and left alone to just be guns.

    I do not like Lightning Ascents. I love Tubbs Flex VRT, in fact I'm buying a new pair very soon. They are indestructible and very easy to put on and off.

    Back in the 80's early 90's EMS in North Conway was the same. Joe Lentini ran the climbing school and it's setting in the Eastern Slopes Inn just had a magic to it.
