Thread: New member in Nampa
I'm in the Nampa area. I just turned 18, and can therefore legally carry now. I am working on getting my Maine CCW permit so I can CC, but for the meantime I'm stuck with OC. Just thought I'd check in, and that it'd be nice to have OC connections in this area.
My daughter lives in Nampa and I took her out to eat on Thanksgiving, OCed of course. The only place I suggest you don't go is the Nampa BOWLING ALLY. I took my daughter to dinner and then to bowl. After eating at the bowling ally we got a lane (nobody else around). As we put on our bowling shoes the manager (anti american) told me I couldn't have my weapon and had to take it to my car. I told him fine we would just leave and started to put our street shoes back on, he said you can put it in his safe...lol. I said no that I was in the military for 23 years was in Iraq in 91 and 05 and Afgahnistan in 03 and I would just rather leave a buisness that doesn't support the US Constitution. He said "I do", I said just not the 2A as I walked out.
DON'T SPEND YOUR MONEY THERE.
Thanks for the welcome! I would love any advice on what places are non-OC friendly. It doesn't help that I just turned 18, so lots of people question me when they wouldn't somebody else.
welcome to the group. i also live in nampa
I found it almost impossible to bowl and carry. every time i would throw the ball it would hit my pistol. if it was lcp small and in my left pocket no problem. they have a bar and i don't carry when i drink so i never really carry in a bowling alley. hope a law abiding citizen is around with a firearm if shtf.
does anyone know when dollar day is?

I live in Mountain Home and don't travel to Nampa without being armed. I refuse to leave it in the car but I do understand not carrying and drinking.
I usally only drink when on vacation in Las Vegas or at night in the Hot Tub.....lol
As for the AR-15 it is cheaper and more exciting to build your own, I have build two and my friend builds them all the time.
I will talk to my friend (more like a brother) after serving in Iraq together and ask him what he would charge to build you one. He is very very good and I would trust him with my life...heck I have.
I know he was building them for less than that but that was a few years ago. I will send you a private message after I talk to him, I just don't have the time right now to be making anymore right now. Even if it is fun.
The only gun show in the area that I'm aware of is the Nampa Rod & Gun one. It isn't very big. Are there any big ones coming up in the next couple months?

check out the S&W M&P sport 650$ impact guns has em, im thinking of picking one up. plenty of money left over for killer trigger or optic. already have the sw mp15r in 5.45x39 and love it. 2 inch groups at 100 yds, good enough for me!
the only thing missing on the m&P15 sport is dust cover and forward assist. same lower as 5.45 except spring. ive never cleaned or had to use my forward assist or dust cover in the last 2000 rounds. desert, rainy, hot, cold conditions worked great. milspec is over rated in my book. why cant you do it on paper? felony?
it will be my next purchase but yours is up to you
stay safe buddy
Welcome JK to Nampa. You will fine most places and people here are very cool about OP, but you'll probably run into an Idiot sheep or even an uneducated LEO who aren't aware of the laws and like many have mentioned you'll get a lot more out of them by being polite and respectful. Just don't let them ruin your day just because they are unhappy. Don't give them the satisfaction of thinking they got to you. Just piss them off by smiling and saying have a nice day. I've got a few friends over at The Boise Gun Co. and they are good people who will help you in any way. They also aren't one of those LGS who'll try and rip you off, at least in my experience. Good Luck and Keep you Powder Dry!
Later & Peace,
