bobski,

Several of my friends have had problems with certain Providers especially in Va and MD when their SF Units are stationed there, limiting their ability to use certain kinds of information on the Net. It's not your computer, it's your provider. The only real way to eliminate the problem is to find a Net provider in your area that does not limit your access to anything.

You will find that these Providers who limit access to some the different venues are very politically motivated.

A good way to tell if your provider is playing mommy is to try accessing the NRA sight, the 16 forum, or the Shooting Sportsman.

I use MacBook Air and have both Comcast in my main home, and Blue Ride Cable in my Log Cabin in Potter/Tioga. I have no sensorship on either provider or I would get ride of them.

Good luck with getting a good provider.

Pine Creek/Dave

I want to clear up bobski's comment about the 16ga shoot and let everyone know that we hope to make the first ever "Ozark 16ga shoot" a success.
I enjoyed the shoot at South St. Paul and hope to bring as much fun to 16ga shooters in the midwouth as we have at the St. Paul shoot.
