    I have been member for couple or weeks and lurking and just want to introduce myself. My name is Michael andlive in Fairfax County. Got my CHP today after 48 days. I have open carried a couple of times and got some strange looks, I'm getting used to it. I think I willconceal carry more until I have to go open carry mode by law. I'm a Colt 1911 person with a defender for carry and commander. I hang at Gilbert indoor range.

    Welcome!

    Being JUST north of the "mixing bowl", I used to shoot @ Gilberts all the time, but once I started shooting the EBRs I had to give it up for the NRA range.

    Welcome dichamw!!

    I am a bit dissappointed in the previous OCDO members. I would have expected to see something like this..........

    Best thing about moving to Virginia is you can say, "I got my OC permit in 48 seconds. That's how long is took me to unpack and holster my sidearm."

    Almost makes me want to move out and move back in again!
