Booker's is made by Beam. It is not uncommon for these company's to work that way. I guess Booker's get first choice of the barrels and a certain spot in the racks in a specific building for ageing. No Total Wine in the area so I will have to wait till I head south.
This is true. The Trump inspired birther movement paved the way for a whole new level of discourse in politics and it looks like the Democrats learned their lesson and will be playing their Trump card for as long as he can hold the position.
That is true, they generally do run a very tight line. Although I was there a few years ago with a new rifle that I was breaking in and was running some patches through it and they let me do that on the bench while the line was down. Of course it was a bolt action rifle and its pretty easy to verify its safe when the bolt is laying on the table next to me.
Personally I appreciate them running things like they do. I'd rather have them run a tight line and have the process take more time than them getting lose with the rules. You never know who else is on the line and what their bad habits might be.
If anyone is concerned with down time I've had good luck getting there very early on a weekday during public hours or even early on a Sunday. I've had the entire 100 yard range to myself once or twice when shooting early and never had more than a handful of guys on the entire range most mornings. If you get lucky and have it to yourself no need to worry about down time.
