    Welcome to the forum. Actually we are not seniors, just juniors awaiting to be seniors. Seniors are 100+ years and juniors are
    anybody less than that. Great people on here and anxious to hear some of your experiences and pictures of all types of guns
    are very welcome. So jump in and share with some of the skills you have and sometimes the hilarity that goes on.

    From the land of the never ending sun-Az.

    Hi Chubbo. I was stationed at Lockbourne AFB in 1958-59. I'm guessing there's no sign of it now.

    I'm not quite so old a poop, and need help from Miralax now and then to poop at all.

    And... we need pics. Of your guns, not you; well, if you insist.

    ;)

    Welcome to the forum! Everyone here is good natured and good for a joke. There are a few of us (no need to name them, you'll figure it out if ya stick around long enough) who are rather inclined towards leg pulling. Don't be scared to turn around and throw one right back though, it's good for them to remember that there are still a few of us out there who are quick on our feet.

    Anyway, enjoy your time here on R/T!

    Lockbourne AFB

    Lockbourne AFB is still there, and going strong, as a commercial air freight center. I assume that you mean the SAC bunkers etc.? No, I don't think anything remains of that. I worked on the family apartments of the SAC as an electrician
    back then. My Father worked on the original Lockbourne AFB when it was built. I remember him saying that the concrete fields were four foot thick. I also remember back during WW2 that there was never a time day or night when you could look up and not see B17 bombers, in the air. Now I'm telling my age.

    B-17 Flying Fortress; my favorite bomber in WW2. Gun barrels sticking out all over. When I was there it was B-47s.

    Welcome from Texas.

    Must have been a "nervous" time of life watching bombers in the air at all times.
    My father told me of taping their headlights so only a slit of light could get out.
    They were expecting an attack at any time.

    Things change, now we gotta watch for unattended back packs and stuff.

    Anyway, glad to have you here at RugerTalk with us.
