A lot of junk that I seldom use. LOL (2x4 case) A clean towel, My Viking cue, A custom cue with 12mm tip. (I use as a backup very rarely, and prefer for snooker), A Willard dime size shaper, Another shaper/tapper that I never use, A mushroom burnisher seldom if ever used, A mushroom graser rarely used, A Tip Pik seldom used, Eight pieces of Master's Blue, always one piece in my left pocket, an ink pen, an eight ball key chain, a nine ball key chain, and my CCB tag. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif I rarely carry my jump cue, since I can't use it in APA play, and when I'm just goofing off, I've found that I can jump fairly well with the Viking, after learning how with the Stealth.

The cue club is in a big shopping center and like 25 yards away they have a mexican nightclub. Well on sat nights the place is like the wild west over there. Somethings always happening to someone. About 6-7 months ago 2 guys got killed right out front of the pool hall.
I go mainly in the daytime, but at night i DO carry the 9000. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
