    How come a DUI you can get your driver licence back, which it is a privilege. But if commiting a felon, even something non violent like stealing, you are denied your constitutional rights for the rest of your life?

    More restrictions on guns? how about restrictions on chainsaws and knives?

    You two do know that most meet&greet events are just announced, not discussed to death and voted on.

    A bowling night sounds like a great idea. Probably the only way to find out if the lanes will welcome you is to show up. And remember that the 7th frame is the soda frame.

    stay safe.

    +1 on build it and they will come.

    Put it to a vote and you'll likely be waiting until Sept. to see who wins.

    Just remember, they get really pissed if you shoot the pins.

    Nice I think I've hit more pins with bullets than bowling balls, now that you mention it.

    I think the open carrier with a cross draw or shoulder holster would have the advantage at this event...

    Wink Sounds painful.

    I'd need to get a different holster, or bowl left-handed. Otherwise, my elbow would hit my holster every time I rolled the ball. :-)
    Guns don't kill people. Drivers on cell phones do.

    Built-in handicap - maybe you should sell the idea to the pro bowling tour.

    Sounds like fun, this would probably be my first open carry event and what better way than bowling which is something I'm good at. Although I don't how good I would be with my Xd strapped to my side.
