My thanks goes to all of you that showered in the tropics with your M16's, and to all in the service.

If I was too subtle. "THANKS FOR YOUR SERVICE"

Now back to slog and his OCD. . . . . I kinda like 'between' the towels. Maybe a towel rack/shelf in the shower like those 'fancy hotels'
I think I would use clP(rotectant) and skip the patch.

Me being serious about taking a gun in the shower or keeping my guns dry? When my wife's kid asked me why I need to take a gun in the shower with me, I said that whoever breaks into the house and disturbs my shower is going to get more than they bargained for, and I'm not talking about the gun.

Sometimes when people see me wipe down my gun after they touch it, they'll touch it again just to get on my nerves, and then I'll have to completely wipe it down again to get their sweat off of it.

The shower is easy. It is the spa that is a pita.

Yes I have taken a few showers in my time with my 249. And an all expenses paid vacation to some of worlds hot spots.

This is an issue that really does irritate me at the gym. A gun goes everywhere with me but I hate leaving it in my bag while I shower in the locker room.... And I hate showering with a locker key. Maybe I should start carrying a ziplock bag with me and wear the gun into the gym shower instead.

Sorry, guys, I'm just not going to obsess about it that badly.

A coward dies 1000 deaths, a brave man but once.

We all have got to go sometime. If somebody manages

to get to me while I'm washing my 'nads, I'm simply a goner...

At least your nads will be clean though. And the folks at the funeral home won't have to break you apart to get your clothes off.
