You bet. During the matches, Commercial Row is one of the most dangerous places on earth....for your credit card, that is.

Yes, may people in Ohio/Indiana/Michigan/Pennsylvania routinely go there and select a rifle off the rack. I know several how have.

How far is the store from the gate on highway 2? I drive a truck, and there is a rest area just outside the gate.

What's the "Gratitude Train" story?

In 1949, Alliance’s president Thornton Oakley was a member of the Mayor of Philadelphia’s Reception Committee when the Train de la Reconnaissance Française, (the French Gratitude Train) came to Pennsylvania. – 49 railroad boxcars (one for each for the forty-eight states, and one for the District of Columbia to be shared with the district of Hawaii) laden with gifts, artwork, and treasured items from the people of France sent in gratitude and appreciation to the United States for the Friendship Train. The Friendship Train which the French people received from the United States in 1947. was loaded with carloads of food, medicine and supplies to help people recover after WWII - a wonderful gesture on the part of the people from the U.S. and France that further forged their brotherhood.


I am sure the one located at Camp Perry, arrived pretty much the same as the one from Philadelphia.
