    book 9

    Ok AA, I'm not going to start harassing you about the next book...yet. this is just a suggestion for it. Considering the eclipse today, surely you're going to include it in the next book.

    LOL, one of the most subtle calls for "MOAR BUK" that I've seen.

    Any speculation on how many cities or bases were hit?

    So with that strike, why wouldn't the U.S. launch everything it had at key cities in that (those) countries. It's time to give those Governments a taste of their own medicine.....perhaps with a domestic crisis of their own, they'll have less time/resources to "provide aide" to the U.S.

    Also.....any chance of the cast from the Home series merging with the cast from Charlie's Requiem since they're starting to explore and engage hostiles further south? Of course Orlando being closer to the strike may have had some consequences (and a 2nd EMP knocking out FEMA efforts there and putting an end to that terror)

    Maybe major operations had been moved from McDill to Hurlburt? (just a hope)

    Question about Book 9 - page 287 - ""I slipped the ASP from my vest...". "I dropped the ASP and raised the pistol..."
    OK, Google-fu wasn't much help. What's an "ASP"?

    In the 70s and 80s it was sort of like a spring steel baton, it would collapse in on itself when not in use. Not bad. They're still around, not legal everywhere. You're probably better off with escrima style sticks.

    No springs, just centrifugal force to open it. Give it a good sling, and the weight of the steel tubes causes them to extend. Then a good tap on the floor loosens them to be collapsed. I carried one until I retired 10 years ago.

    Our local SO quit carrying them after a rash of serious knee injuries to detainees. Apparently several deputies had become quite adept at a side strike on the knee area that wreaked havoc on the tendons and cartilage. Tasers and CS are their only authorized LTL weapons now.
