On Deereco Road in Timonium there is a big gray concrete slab of a building which houses the local post office. It is probably the ugliest building in the world, and if not, at least ties with the Fila building up in Loveton. The Deereco Road building butts against I-83, and if you’ve ever driven past it, it has the Timonium zip code painted on it in real big letters: 21093, so you may remember seeing it.
There’s a delicious irony here. On the north end of the building is a small company named Continental Arms. As the name suggests, they sell firearms — rifles, shotguns, handguns, the whole kit and kaboodle. As a matter of fact, I bought my S&W .357 from there several years ago. In addition to selling firearms, they also have a shooting range.
Really, you’d think someone at the post office in charge of leasing space would have, at some point, made the observation, “Hey, uh, look, how convenient do we really want to make it to our employees to access firearms, eh?”
Hey – I’ll take the easy shots when I get them.
