I give the USCG a lot of flak, but they are doing a bang-up job, not only in the air but by sea as well.


Now back to your regularly scheduled USCG trashing:
I'll bet the CVN gets there before that slow-ass 210.

Those guys are doing a great job.

I'm glad that since I have a shotgun and pistol I'm considered 'heavily armed'

Good luck and godspeed boys...
