I had some Spanish jambon. Not sure if this is what you are talking about.

The closest I can describe it was a complete pig leg (with skin and some hair). There was then a "leg holder" that held the leg and you cut pieces off with a knife.

I didn't care for it. The hair and skin was strange and it was more cured than smoked. I like my ham more smoke flavored.

Are you sure that it was Spanish jamon and not French jambon?

Of course, i wouldn´t be on this forum if i couldn´t have a glock

We can have AR 15´s, any pistol, rifles, shotguns.. etc.

Conceal carry no need for that here, i´ved lived in a few countries (including the US) the level of violent crime here is very low especially where I am. I would never think of carry a gun even if it was legal.

People in the USA dont really want to hear that.

The biggest problem there is here with violent crime is Russians.

I suspect that the russian mob is involved some. There are only a few crossing to southern Europe through switzerland and being near one of the biggest crossing probably means the russians are here for a reason.

But there was a HUGE diamond heist at (was it Brussels). Also dont forget about shootouts in Marseilles

Hi, I´m only answering your question and explaining a little bit more about the culture and crime here is very low (violent crimes). I was going to apply for the CCW permit in the US but I moved back to Scotland before I could.

But yes the Russian Mafia is everywhere. I know there was a family busted in the Barcelona area for drugs.

There is really no need where I live either but carrying a weapon here is almost akin to carrying a kirpan. It is part of the culture.

I know I spent a lot of time living in MS, it was one of the most gun friendly states, well TX too.

If I had stayed longer I would have got my CCW for protection when I was a psychiatric nurse working days/nights.

Great thread and really enjoyed the pictures. I am taking my family to Spain this summer to visit family. Born and raised in the US from Spanish parents I visited Spain more times than i can count. I am looking forward to having my children experience a beautiful country and get to know my relatives. It will be fun!

The Okie Corral

Probably slightly different, but the spanish ham that I was able to find..

Hi, it´s actually snow, got a fresh dumping today. Normally at this time of year the mountains would be covered but it´s been unusually warm with temperatures at 75ºF in town.
