Way back when I used to play gun games I made a hat to wear to a State championship pistol match that read "I hate my gunsmith", the joke being that I did my own work so the gun's reliability was iffy. Oddly, when folks approached me the first thing they quietly asked was "Is it a Les Baer?" I had heard the name, but was unaware of the issue with his frames cracking and him not standing behind them.

For those who are not familiar with Long Beach CAlif, there are NO beaches in Long Beach, just miles and miles of concrete ship docks, and shipyards etc.

On Ocean Ave & Pine Ave, which has been redeveloped, used to be the "drudges" of L.B. Today it is a night life of hussle and bussle of restaurants, movie theaters, etc, and of course the Long Beach Aquarium and Convention Center. When I worked at the downtown L.B. 10 years ago, they used have crews of people steam cleaning the sidewalks every day.

I find it hard to believe that the FBI would raid a local government, particularly if it were corruption or civil rights violations, and not have a huge press conference telling the world how important they are.

So, yeah, BS.

A lot of people have been expecting a raid on LB city government for a while, so the report wasn't entirely unexpected. But, there almost certainly would have been other news by now, so my friend is apparently mistaken/misled.

Long beach has some really nice areas.

The USS Iowa is within range of a full broadside into downtown LB.

Let me tell my brother to get out of the building before she sends rounds down range.

Brother reports nothing odd going on at LBPD or city hall.
