Default Just got Orders to Pearl

Happy as hell right now...just gotta pass a few more tests and I'm golden to go to paradise on the USS Sante Fe SSN 763.

****ty thing is the damn gun laws in Hawaii. Going to be tough since I won't be able to conceal carry there....and do the idiotic seal up my gun in a lock box BS in my vehicle.

Probably only bringing 4 guns down to that place with me to limit the amount of registration I have to do.

My CZ-75, Kel-Tec PF9, Shotgun, and SU-16CA

Aside from the gun laws you just got a sweet posting. Except you'll be underwater for 6 months, won't you?

Jiro, you may as well just leave them at home. I'm not sure you have a feel how much steaming a fast attack does.

Forget the inconvenience of the gun laws in Hawaii, you will be at sea for most of the time.

Enjoy COMSUBPAC.

Get qualified puke! You are going to get so tired of hearing that.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Default Hawaii

I was stationed in and worked out of Hawaii, 1965-68, with Army Intelligence. What a great place to be stationed. My advice, get to know the local people and learn some of the culture. Try the local food and respect the local customs. I had to return to the Mainland to take care of my Foster Mother or I would still be there. Drink lots of Primo beer...have one for me. You will love Hawaii.

Find some buds and learn to hunt hogs with a knife. Maybe a crossbow is legal there?

It's not the paradise you think. The COLA benefits will all be needed to survive. Drug use is rampant and crime is a big problem, about 25% higher than the national average.

Anyway have fun.

I really don't care either way.....it's better than Kings Bay Georgia and I get to make port calls since it's a SSN.
