Am I asking a really dumb question here? It seems to me like our gun laws especially pertaining to schools have all kinds of gray areas and problems. Maybe it's just me.
Hi Doug good to heard from you. Know all about the elbow thing had the same injury to my left one a year ago took me many months to get over it.

I am still careful with it Just this morning I felt a twinge in it and backed off what I was doing.

I fully under stand the travel thing.

Hope your new instructor works out for you

Take care

Duane
