To me when I find I've been wrong about something that allows me more freedom I tend to jump at it :^). Which could also be a problem I suppose.OC in your car Manassas, VA and you will get arrested.. sooner or later..
The other day I decided to drop into Hatfield's Gunsmithing in Manassas to have my old Millet Combat sites (from my Marine Corps days) removed from my 10mm Delta Elite and have Trijicon Night sites put on instead.
I talked to the giunsmith, Sam Hatfield. Young guy.. served in the army and was a gunsmith in the Army too.. 1911's are his specialty. I asked if he was a VCDL member and if he monitored these boards.. "No" to both but he had "friends" that were members of both. I offered him a small stack of Ed's Open Carry Cards and as he read them he was taken aback by the line "OC in a vehicle is ok". He said "that one right there will get you arrested!"
I said that I think he was misinformed as I said we (all you guys on OC and me) do this all the time every day and we don't get arrested (except for Danbus). And he said that sooner or later you will get arrested for OC in a car.
I said.. ok.. we will have to agree to disagree on this point and continue to be friends and gun advocates. He is also a firearms instructor and teaches classes for chp permits. I wonder if anyone here has ever taken his class and knows if he discourages OC all the time.
Anyway.. I found it interesting and thought you might as well.
