    For years they were in 50 Penn Place then moved to a stand-alone and secure facility near Quail Springs.

    I'm sure Congress will get right on it.

    That is correct. Before 50 Penn Place, the office was located on the west side of Shartel Plaza Shopping Center at N.W. 50th and Shartel. There were second floor offices that ran the length of the west strip of Shartel Plaza, there was also a laboratory and shooting gallery/firing range (with random pop-up human figure targets) in the basement. The reception and public affairs were on the first level, and then all the SA offices were on that second floor span.

    I believe they were in the Murrah building when it was bombed weren't they? Then after the bombing there were proposals to greatly increase the staff in OKC. I don't recall if it ever happened.

    I always thought Memorial was kind of a dumb location for them to build at. Even when they built, the location they chose was filling in fast so they knew it wouldn't have room to grow, and they didn't build it to give them anywhere TO grow (like up).

    Hopefully, they think a little better about it this time.

    Hey, isn't Lincoln Plaza empty?

    No, Mug, the ATF was there, but the FBI was in Fifty Penn at the time of the bombing.

    OK. I thought they were both there. I used to work in 50 Penn Place long ago and thought they moved. Thx for the info.
