    Damn few...
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Chuck, we miss ya man.

    Name sounds familiar, was he mentioned in Yeager's autobiography? Read it 30 years ago as a kid...

    16 kills is pretty damned impressive.

    I think he flew Mr. Right Stuff's wing for a while; if memory serves Bob Hoover was part of that pack too.
