    Okay, this isn't firearms related, but I know many of us have a well-diversified hobby schedule. (Heck, don't want anything to happen to ANY of my friends, even you guys that I NEVER agree with :p {it's too much fun crossing words with you!})!

    Aqua Lung America Recalls Apeks Scuba Diving Regulators Due to Drowning Hazard
    WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
