    Packwood, WA & Swap Meet Weekend

    Spent the day wearing my Guns & Coffee Tshirt and my Sig on my hip.

    Some strange looks, some happy faces, some, OMG he's wearing a gun looks....

    I had some really good interactions with the public, passed out some business cards and pamphlets. One lady tried to sneak some pics but her shutter noise gave her away, so I just smile and posed for her.

    Had a 5 min conversation with a guy who loves the idea of us OC'ing. He said folks "need to get use to the idea."

    Saw a pistol for sale that I would loved to have bought but it was just a bit out of my budget right now.

    Sounds like a great OC day to me.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    Wish I had run into you! Spent several hours Saturday walking around Packwood OC. No hassles, nobody running and screaming. Saw one other OC'er in passing, but he wasn't wearing a Guns & Coffee Tshirt. Someone I was with also spotted a lady OC'n a revolver, but I missed her.

    Camped for the weekend at the Indian Creek Campground over by Rimrock lake, OC the whole time there with no problems. Overall a great weekend.
