    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    Does your boss allow employees to be armed while at work?

    Unfortunately, while I am at one of my employers facilities, that is a negative. However, I am permitted to be armed while working when working remotely. Which, of course, I take advantage of.

    I can flex my work hours; I may be able to take an extended lunch break and make this, if I feel like working late to make up the time...no promises, though.

    I got another Bersa.

    Turns out they now make the .380 in a double-stack, 15+1. Plus, I found it in flat black. All my other Bersas EXCEPT the .380 were flat black. Now I have a matching set. And 16 rds of .380 makes up, a bit, for the fact they aren't as powerful a load as the .45 ACP.

    Now to find spare magazines.

    A single, well placed, .22 is better than 15 poorly placed .380s (or .45s)....

    I'll probably be able to attend, but I won't be able to stick around for but an hour. I've got to take my vehicle to Lorton this afternoon.

    hrmm, there's several parking lots in the vicinity. However, I don't know the regulations of those lots. You probably don't want to park in the commuter lots. I believe a permit is required. The commuter lots are directly next to the train station.

    there's a commuter lot near the rail station, there is also a public lot across the street from the commuter lot and there is street parking(if available)
    all within walking distance of Foster's

    Sorry you couldn't make it. 8 of us did, and had a nice time.

    I would have loved to go to this one since I am quite fond of Foster's burgers, but I had to work today.

    How did it go? Any problems, comments, stares, etc.?

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?
