I sincerly wish you all luck.  It took 2 adm's to get our latest prizes.   Also the word from Mark Wertzheimer in DC is that the former NHC will not turn loose of any weapons for display any more.   We will help where we can.

No weapons for display anymore? :o  Is this just torpedoes and other large items, or does it include small arms?

And why won't put more out? Afraid some one will try to use a deactivated torpedo?
