    Virginia is home to two dormant volcanoes. Mole Hill in Rockingham County and Trimble Knob in Highland County.
    I don't think we have to worry to much about them. Godzilla on the other hand has me very concerned.

    With anticipated rainfall between 100 & 200 inches, how much Humi-Dri should I add to my gun safe?

    Also, depending on just how fast the tidal wave comes ashore I'm thinking this might be one of the few times the rest of you will not make fun of me for having my OC sidearm on a lanyard.

    stay safe.

    It wouldn't be a bad thing if Godzilla or a Volcano cleaned out some of the spruce yuppies and T-Genes in and around Charlotsville.

    Question is whether the heat generated will make the bagels too hard to consume...........except for reptiles like Godzilla.

    This is meaningless, as we know that we are not welcome to OC while getting bagels - even during a volcanic super-hurricane tidal wave Godzilla invasion.

    But wait! Maybe a certain someone would be willing to do a bagel run - as long as we did not refer to it as an OC event? But can they be trusted not to bring back decaff coffee?

    stay safe.

    BWAAAHAHAHA, my rights are worth SO MUCH MORE THAN SOME SANDWICH! Sigh...maybe one day you'll get it.

    Skidmark,

    If you do decide to put your carry piece on a lanyard please remember to put a floaty around it as well so it doesn't drag you down. Unless you dont carry a real big gun and just a piece of Tupperware, !

    The fact is he did ask someone in his store open carrying to conceal it, and he did not say that as a whole open carry was ok. He said he would rather us hide our guns because of feelings. He did say that he understands the law and that OC is legal. But after his actions that speak louder than words. I can not trust that he wll not single me out in his store for a little demonstration. So as a case in point I will not fill his little register with my hard earned money.

    Was that possibly be due to the honest, responsible presentation of facts/education offered by people here?

I do not for one second believe that a threat to boycott his business played any part in the decisions and remarks he made here.
    Wow this thread was fun and funny until you showed up. Maybe you should change your name from Sheriff to Wet blanket...just a thought.

    No, no - was asking you about your feelings per the above lead in quote.

    But as to the other - The risk (something bad happening as a result of allowing OC) is low, therefore you speculate that your statement of that fact coupled with the suggestion that we are few contributed to his decision. Did you actually articulate that to Bodo's?

    Will you be OCing as you go about your normal every day activities - which would seem to include the establishment referenced - or would doing so increase the risk? Here I thought OCing reduced risk proportionally, other than the "risk" of perhaps being seen more easily and there is much to support that as being a benefit.

    You both would profit from (re)reading Gun Facts .

    Sorry that you seem to think that OC will "never become a day to day concern" reality in Charlottesville.

    So has anyone tried to OC at Bodo's since the curfuffle?

    This message has at least 1 character in it's body as required by the Nazis who designed the forum's software :^).
