Hurricane Florence with its area wide breath of hot, humid air has delayed the long anticipated start of relief from the sultry summer environment.<br /> Coast Guard Auxiliary Reports By Carolyn Brown Treadon September 20, 2018 https://www.thewakullanews.com/content/coast-guard-auxiliary-reports-carolyn-brown-treadon-september-20-2018 <img src="https://www.thewakullanews.com/sites/www.thewakullanews.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/bob_asztalos.jpg" alt=" Bob Asztalos from Flotilla 12 was an instructor at the Aids to Navigation course in Panama City." title=" Bob Asztalos from Flotilla 12 was an instructor at the Aids to Navigation course in Panama City." align="left" hspace="6" width="113" height="85" /><p> This past weekend several members from Flotilla 12 and 19 headed over to Station Panama City to take part in the ATON (aids to navigation) Verifier Course.

One of them included a P365.<br /> It&rsquo;s a striker-fired gun, which I like, and is more compact than the P320 subcompact. So, naturally, I want to try it out.<br /> &ldquo;You don&rsquo;t have one of these guys to rent, do you?&rdquo; I ask Mike, not really believing the store would have one of these newer guns available for rent. One can hope, anyway.<br />
