Re: CCW question

the only way you could get a armed trespassing is if the local law enforcement show up and ask you to leave and then you refuse. By law you must first be trespassed by law enforcement before you can have a criminal case against you. Now talking about a place of business not private residential place

Re: wanting a new hull need help.

i will never run another gilleo hull. Nothing against the hull i had one and wrecked it pretty bad not the hulls fault but before that i loved mine but i still cant seem to get into another one. Maybe i just need to put my big boy pants on and get over it.
