Operation Falcon

Post by Guest » Thu Apr 14, 2005 10:35 am

I see on the CNN site that the feds have done a nationwide dragnet, and caught over 10,000 wanted fugitives. Later in the story, it says ONE was for an illegal alcohol producing still. Just a heads-up: the odds are in our favor, if you keep small and quiet, but they're still out there looking for us!

I'd be willing to bet that the one guy who got busted was selling his moonshine.

I was gonna say the same thing, Yttrium. Don't sell it, don't flaunt it.

Here's the whole article for those interested:

i'm willing to be that this still was slightly larger than my 10 gallon unit, as well.

Yup, if they busted him there's a good chance it was quite large with large volumes being sold. Hard to see how anyone could make reasonable money from a 10 gal. still, even if we wanted to.
