    I OC-ed for the first time ever this week. Not one problem up here in Blacksburg. I went to Kroger twice, Food lion, McDonalds, and three gun shops in the past three days without a word said to me. Did get a few :what: and :shock: though, lol. That didn't bother me at all, however. All in all I'd say it was a great experience. Now if only I could OC to my classes....

    Welcome to OCDO and the OC experience.

    In spite of the regulations that VPI&SU imposes on its employees and students, Blacksburg itself seems to be accepting of OC. Might be time for all the folks in and around Blacksburg to get together and start meeting up on a regular basis.

    stay safe.

    Hell, I'd drive down there more often if it meant we could meet and OC at Mike's Grill. Mmmm...best burgers I've ever had, bar none.

    Is there a movement toward allowing students to carry on campus (VT) in light of the shooting?

    The Students for Concealed Carry on Campus (SCCC) has a VT Chapter; I get their facebook emails all the time...

    Posta date & time and see who says they will show up. Might be helpoful to include a link to a map for possible out-of-towners. Once the word gets around you might have a tradition in the making.

    stay safe.

    I was just thinking about that wonderful day we had in Nov. We definately need to set up another range day in the spring!

    I'll have fridays off then so any weekend in the spring I should be able to make...hopefully.

    Thanks for the welcome guys. Mike's grill is pretty good, though I've only been there 2 or 3 times. And to foxcall: it was the kroger on university blvd, and yes i actually went to miller's, crockett's, and whitetail outfitters. I'll probably be at whitetail again soon because my roommate wants a scoped SKS they have there. anyway, I wanted to come to that OCDO meet-up but that was my b-day weekend and I was visiting the chica in newport news.

    Preferably when it's not a cold and BLOWING RAIN day :^). Macado's was good. Still can't believe half of the people there didn't want to eat the "hot" wings I ordered :^)! Nova, where'd you go? You gotta go to lunch with us next time!

    Where were you all when I was still down there?! I made more than one thread suggesting such a meeting, too...

    Bleaksburg and Christiansburg are generally accepting of OC it seems, though, as you might expect, you get more stares and the like the closer you are to campus.

    Good to hear, My Sweet Roisin Dubh.
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    In 1850 there were 8 million Irishmen in Ireland.
    Today there are only 4 million.
    The US has approximately 60+ million of Irish decent.

    The Republic of Ireland remains one of the most conservative countries in the EU. And for the first time is actually importing labor instead of exporting it. Yet I'm still shocked by the divisions there. They are quite serious about them too :^). In 2001 I actually met someone with my last name for the first time in my life! I literally have never seen so many white people, and I do mean white.....

    Yeah I regret not hanging around longer and going to Macado's (I love their "Hindenburg" sub w/ chips!). But I had to trample through the forest with a GPS for a few hours (I was fufilling a requirement for a class at GMU...had to use a GPS and take pictures and write stuff about it, etc.)

    I'm looking forward to the next meetup!
