A town with but not enough work for one lawyer,
has more than sufficient work, when there are two.

Is "Barbershop Advice" an actual legal term, and is there precedent for it's
use in the courts? If so, could you supply a link please.
I just do what the lawyer tells me to do to reduce risk as much as possible...
The entire issue is not fun-- I increase my lawsuit risk, while at the same
time increasing the chances of getting shot by some non legal farmer, all for
my hobby, and I am not even breaking any laws, or FCC rules to boot. A very
messy place, but I love ham radio as a hobby and I am not going to give it up...
Thanks and 73's,
