I like So, but it's so hard to get a table. Meokja Meokja in Fairfax is now my favorite. It doesn't offer AYCE, but unless you have a really big appetite, you can usually stuff yourself there at the same price. Meat quality is noticeably better than Honey Pig or Iron Age.
That really hurt ... :sad20:
I've gone through one round of panic buying at MD. Don't really have the stomach (read: wallet) for another one at VA. Well, maybe pick up a few more standard-capacity magazines before the sky falls.
Iridium NEXT is not meant for consumer broadband services.
OneWeb and Starlink (Elon Musk's project) are both being developed and deployed right now. It will be at least a couple of more years before commercial service starts, though. Both systems are on lower orbits, and network latency...
A non-VA CCW permit won't help. However, this being a shall-issue state, the process is simple enough. I am not sure about other locations, but in Fairfax County you have to apply in person at the Circuit Court. No appointment necessary. After approval, the permit will be mailed to you...

My sympathies. I moved in the opposite direction last year. It's been a liberating experience to be able to bring a handgun home on the same day and buy magazines in whatever capacity I want. Oh, did I mention CCW? :)
Took my NRA basic pistol course there years ago. I was going to check it out again after moving from MD to VA last year, but found better ranges to go and didn't bother anymore. Well, that's free market economy at work.
Put mine together a few years back with these parts on a RRA .223 lower:
Rock River Arms 9mm A4 Upper Receiver
Hahn Precision AR-15 9mm Bottom Loading Conversion Block
Rock River Arms Pistol Caliber Recoil Buffer
Metalform Colt Style 9mm Magazine
It's been a jam-o-matic since...
These are made in Taiwan by the 205th Arsenal as an OEM order. From what I heard, powder and primer were supplied by the customer. Bullet and brass are pretty much the same as Taiwan's military ammo except for the headstamp.
Being from Taiwan myself, of course I bought a case when it was...
