    Guess my next trip to PA will have to have a little detour over to Gettysburg.

    Thanks, Carnivore!
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    These last 9 days were spent cataloging a nice gun collection of my wifes Uncles, I looked in on the site everyday, but never signed in.

    I managed to make it down to the square and points N&S to stroll through the old shops and soak up some of the civil war era memorabilia(awesome Eye Candy for me) never bought anything, as I didn't need more to try to haul back on the plane. But I asked Mom inlaw about her acceptance of open carry in the dining room at the restaraunt, and she said she's had groups in before, and the guns don't cause any problem, and their owners always leave dead presidents when paying for a meal, so bring em on..

    She packs a Ruger 9mm p90 and I believe a Taurus millenium.38 , and you won't find any gun buster signs on her doors.. If she weighed me when I arrived in Gettysburg, and weighed me before I left, I'd owe Doug the cook an arm and a leg, GOOD FOOD !!

    I will keep this in mind next time I get out that way. I may even organize an OC dinner out there if I can get enough people to go. Is Betty your mom-inlaw, the owner? If so, I will call to set something up.

    Betty TopperMom inlaw, Yes,, Partner/Owner with Doug Stultz partner/ owner Cook/Kitchen manager, Brother inlaw..

    Have your waitress call Doug from the Kitchen, and Tell him Jesse sent you, He has lots of questions about Pa. laws, and different OC/CCW do's and don'ts, I referred him to the site here, but he didn't have time to check it out before I left the state.. Mom inlaw knows Pa. law inside and out, as she has a degree in Paralegal and keeps herself current,Catch him before 1/21/09 or allow a week after this date, ButBetty will schedule any group or individual sitting you request, the banquet room will probably seat 40 or so very comfortably, and half of those seats will have a clear line of fire towards the door, if your like me and like to watch the entrance

    That is great!! It will probably not be until spring, but, I will try to get a crew together to have an OC lunch out there then. All of the OC'ers are very much up on the gun laws of Pa. It will be neat to meet your Mom in law and I will bring a gun rights flyer along to give to Doug.

    Thanks for the info Jesse!

    Already done one there :celebrate

    Though we usually try and do our OC dinners in less-then-OC-friendly jurisdictions, to make a point

    Well I guess that would be a good one liner when you approach another restaraunt owner for a new location,

    "( Hey I was wondering if you had banquet facility for XX number of OC gunowners to come in and have a luncheon, or would you recommend we keep our business at the Gettysburg family restaraunt area?)"

    Yep Betty is alright. She is a member of my club. She should have brought you to ACSHA to do some shooting. I forget who set up the OC meet, but I was there. Sat next to Greg I think.



    Good food, good staff, a few cute waitresses.



    It's all good at Gettysburg Family Rest.

    Gettysburg Family Restaurant is in the Staples shopping center across from Walmart. It is also very near Rt 15 for anyone passing through.



    It's right near H&R Block and the American Eye Center.

    HMM, wanna meet up roo boy? LOL

    Yeah I was at the OC lunch there last year, met Lil Dobe, Greg, and others, and it was my first time OCing in public. Fingers ( Jim) set it up, and assured us all that the owner was a gun person like us. We got stares from other patrons, and some of us were lingering in the parking lot afterwards and a van load of 80 somethings drove by, the 80 somethings gawking at us! No cops were ever seen, and one of the guys even went to the nearby walmart to buy ammo and OC'd there and had no problems.

    SorryI didn't get back to you on the pm, meant to and forgot all about it till now. I'm doing ok, though I plain hate winter, except for the trapping (41 red foxes, 5 raccoons, and 1 big possum, still have some beaver/mink/muskrat/otter to go after yet).

    OC in fursuit? Hmm...I am guessing your roosuit is done?

    D: I'm jealous, you get to skin all those animals by yourself...

    No, my roo suit isn't done yet. I've some of the head and body done, but I'm going to redo the head. Currently I'm needing the weather to warm up so I can use the outdoor shop, and the head structure will be molded using kevlar. My friend who made a fox fursuit using carbon fiber gave me the idea, who happens to be in to firearms a great deal. I was joking with him and he said I could make the structure using kevlar.

    I think the PD's in York county would totally flip if they got a call about " weird people dressed in animal costumes, with guns" LMAO. That would be a FWAG call ( furry with a gun). I do have various hilarious scenereos involving OC though, I can't shut off my creative mind sometimes. Just wish I could WRITE stories like I did 15 years ago and do my little drawings too. LOL my old drawings look like furry art, I guess I am a natural born furry at heart.



    Spontaneous art by me LOL:

    brass yote



    fox target ( please ignore the crappy shooting)





    LMAO- how about this one?
