    I'm seeing enough folks in Thurston County where we should be able to pull off a meeting. I do not want to detract from the upcoming big monthly meet, but would like to suggest some sort of Thurston County meet on a semi regular basis, maybe get over to Shelton at times as well.

    I have Monday and Tuesday off, and am generally available evenings as well (although Wednesday through Sunday I'll be working and not packing...)

    I'm available most weekends and most evenings. Shelton is a bit of a stretch some times (as I'm on the east side) but doable usually.

    I wouldnt mind meeting some people from around here. I'll be moving up to Tacoma on the 19th, but I can still commute down here. Any day outside of Sun-Tues is good for me.

    Ok, that's two folks. I know there are a couple of other Thurston county folks running around here! I can "find" a couple more folks I know who don't post here but are solid gun people...

    Yeah, pull the trigger, Steve! FYI, I will be leaving with the hour for Open Sores for a fire commissioners conference. Be back Saturday about 7 PM.

    I'm thinking the 29th or 30th in the evening. I put the word out here as well because I know a couple of other folks who would be interested... http://olyblog.net/thurston-county-open-carry-dinner

    Right now I'm calling this for the 30th, to allow for a tight schedule of one person who wishes to attend. Don't know the location, it may be on the West side of Oly.

    Hmm. Sounds like potential fun for a Sunday evening. But I don't have an OC-suitable holster for my M&P, so how should I show solidarity? I could always wear that Nagant you sold me, Steve (in its "wait a minute while I unbutton this thing, comrade" holster) ...

    Sunday evening works for me. I'll be there. Wherever "there" is. West side is OK, too.

    I, too, lack an OC-suitable holster but hope to pick up some tips on what works.

    Some folks opinions aside, I have OC'd with my basic concealement rig a few times with my P89. Minimal retention. Heck I OC it now with an Uncle Mike's sidekick. Holds the gun in tight, plus has a retention strap across the top. That's all I personally care about.

    If you don't feel comfortable OCing with the holster you have, by all means don't, and please dont' feel bad if you're not OCing:P It was a big step for a lot of folks, including me. Knowledge of the law and rights aside, there is often the matter of putting social conditioning aside, so until you personally feel comfortable with your rig and mode of carry...

    Thanks. I'll be there. I'll be at Freighthouse Square in Tacoma at 12:30 today, as well. Good opportunity to put faces to names.

    I'll see you and the way South Sound crowd on the 30th. Just say where!

    The 30th in the evening. Most likely at Apollo's pizza on the westside of Oly, but I have to double check. Will have a firm location/time by the end of this week, but it will be the 30th.

    I'll be there. This'll be good...ie; 2 birds. A good excuse to check out boat stuff.
