    Please take a moment to check out the new Virginia Gun Owners Forum. I have created this new forum to provide another place where we can all come together and discuss things that are important to us regarding our firearms - not just open carry, but *anything* to do with your firearms.

    OpenCarry.org is a great place with a lot of good discussion. I don't want to take anything away from this place - quite the contrary, I plan to contribute here as time goes on; as I immerse myself deeper into the Grass Roots fight to keep our Second Amendment rights alive. Every voice counts!

    That said, I would like to introduce you to a broader "Firearms in Virginia" message board where there are several topics and categories for discussion. I have started by posting clear links and instructions regarding current Virginia Code as well as links and information about obtaining your Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP). This is only the beginning!

    Thanks for your time. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

    Sadly, it's only a matter of time before someone at Google figures out your content, and shuts down your AdSense account. Last I checked, (and please correct me if I'm wrong, I didn't verify this today) their policy disallows any web pages related to firearms.

    Ah, that's an excellent point. I need to get that out of there.

    I recall running into this several years ago. This is not a new thing with Google. When I first started http://all-in-general.com (early 2005), I had BB guns and firearm accessories. They wouldn't let me list my products in Froogle then either - so in an effort to get my store off the ground, I removed all of the offending items from my store so that I could get into froogle. Now I don't care about Froogle

    Thanks for the heads' up/reminder on this.

    No problem! Hate to see your account get shut down, if you have other sites that use it. OCDO had the same problem from what I have read on past postings.

    Just an FYI: you might want to take a look at:

    Title 59.1 Trade and Commerce
    Chap. 31 Prizes and Gifts Act, §§ 59.1-415 — 59.1-423
    Virginia Code § 59.1-415 et. seq.

    There are technical restrictions on how you can do a "free offer" thing, and I suggest it might be worth your while to rewrite the splash page a little.
    Daniel L. Hawes - 540 347 2430 - HTTP://www.VirginiaLegalDefense.com

    By the way, nothing I say on this website as "user" should be taken as either advertising for attorney services or legal advice, merely personal opinion. Everyone having a question regarding the application of law to the facts of their situation should seek the advice of an attorney competent in the subject matter of the issues presented and licensed to practice in the relevant state.

    Thank you for pointing out that section of Code. I have made a couple of adjustments to the offer.

    Sorry, but I'm not joining a forum (registering) until I get a chance to see the forum and decide if it's worthy of me, and vice versa.

    Not being able to browse makes me suspicious.

    stay safe.

    That doesn't sound right. I need to look at the config and get that fixed right after I get home from son's football practice. Non-members should be able to browse the entire forum.

    Thanks for checking it out Wolf_shadow. I just logged out and visited as an unregistered user and was able to view everything that I clicked.

    skidmark - is there a specific area you tried to visit that would not allow you in?

    Your link was to the announcements page, which goes nowhere. I did not bother to look for a tab to "Forums".

    Now that I took some time, I found the tab. Yes, I can browse without registering.

    Might want to fix your link so it directs folks to the Forums instead of the Announcements page.

    stay safe.

    ahh, I see said the blind man. Sounds like a good idea to me. Link changed to the main site instead of the announcement.
