    Chinn Aquatics Center PWC

    Anybody have OC experience at Chinn? It is run by PWC so I would think OC is OK. I did see this on their website so maybe this would be a problem:

    The Chinn Center provides valuable community programs such as PlaySchool, our pre-K program for ages 3 - 5 and Before & After School Camp for grades K - 8th Grade.

    I guess none. I just thought someone has some experience there. We just visited there tonight to check them out. Guy at the desk gave us a tour, no complaints and several off duty police were also there. So I guess my only issue is leaving my sidearm in a locker while I'm in my bathing suit. Nice that they allow and encourage you to bring your own locks...

    we do not recommend that the GLOCK be fired under water without proper factory training
    Because you haven't had proper factory training and therefore are not covered under the proper factory warranty. Although what "proper training" may entail is unknown, one assumes that the water must somehow affect one's trigger finger as it's the firer that requires "proper training".


    That, or lawyers are involved. Which might explain why they're only sold for "novelty purposes."

    The Commonwealth of Virginia does not allow PWC to make a rule, law or regulation about guns in locker rooms!

    Request a copy of that policy from them. I'd be willing to bet.... that they can't provide one.

    Ha, it's easy enough to write "There shall be no guns in the locker room" on a piece of paper, but citing the authority to do so is the question at hand! Will they be willing to stick their neck out?

    I'm betting they will not stick their neck out doing either one! (although it could be 'fun' to watch if they did hand write their own 'rule'!! )
