First just wanted to give a big thank you for everyone who participated, hope you all had a great time. I got in a little hot water with Mil.com legal, apparently the lawyers get nervous when I give stuff out. They're pictured on the bayonet if you didn't notice (ok, maybe that's my imagination..). To the head shed's credit they supported it in the end. And if you're not pushing the limits, what's the point, and what the hell am I doing here? The good news is that this was such a success that I'm going to run one a month; just don't tell legal. ;)
