    Arizona rallies, anybody?

    Hope I'm not posting in wrong thread-category, please correct me if I am but, am wondering if any folks in AZ do get-togethers, rallies, whatever, just haven't found any yet. We're recent transplants to Northern AZ, and seeking Steel Soldiers alliances within the state. Regards!

    Shots fired at campers/hikers in apple valley

    Saw this online and it looks kind of weird especially since we only had that San Bernardino terrorist shooting last December. What is even weirder is that this place these guys were apprehended is a popular shooting/camping area.
