    The Warbirds are coming to Chesterfield

    As of the last time I was at the airport OC was not prohibited on the tarmac. I'm not sure how it might go if you go inside/ride one of the bombers as they are not, to my knowledge, commercial aviation. IMHO this is not a place/event to die on the hill over OC but a good opportunity to do some...

    Considering First Firearm Purchase - Seeking Mature Advice

    No. OCing a handgun is not, by itself, a deterrent. And I'm pretty sure you understood that. Go back and read what I had to say about attitude, as well as the very first question I asked the OP to consider. If OC, in and of itself, were a deterrent we could all get one of these...
