    Schedule it

    Pick a saturday would be best for me -- no carry at work (which is annoying, considering I work right downtown -- so that means a special trip in any case).

    Doesn't seem to be much interest in this for Indy.

    OC and lunch are two of my favorite things.

    We did an OC brunch at Mann's in Indy afew months ago. Went very well.

    The bacon was excellent!

    I remember meeting GetA2J at that Terre Haute OC breakfast as well!

    I'm sorry, just have to ask...how do you open carry and bowl? I have thursday leagues and couldn't imagine trying to work around a firearm sticking out from my hip, or anywhere for that matter.

    Since I used to bowl I had to start thinking where the safest place to carry would be. I've narrowed it down to an ankle holster on your back leg. Anywhere on your hip will scrape your arm or you will be bending in a bad way. SOB is just gonna rub the small of your back raw. Shoulder rig is going to have your arms rubbing it, same as sides of hips. So that leaves the ankle holster, or a cowboy hat with a pocket inside. Good bowling form keeps your head forward & level through the approach.

    Pretty easy for me with a paddle holster to slide it around from 4:00 to 5:00 position. On that note, I'm not much of a bowler to begin with so I'm probably doing it wrong.

    On another note: an ankle holster is still OCwhen you're wearing shorts.



    Now... what about lunch?

    Hello, I am up in West Lafayette. I would really like to put my energy into an open carry 'demonstration' (for lack of a better word) sometime rather soon, either here, or more likely in Indianapolis. I think we should walk around the zoo and government area for an hour or two, videotape it, and I think we should tell the police many times beforehand that that's what we are doing (I am not sure about this idea, comments?), then there are no surprises, and then we are accomplishing our goal of getting the police used to the Second Amendment again. So, any and all interested, please respond on this forum asap, and let's get this going. All we need is 5-10 people to make this work. --Jeff

    Maybe a cross draw holster? I'm not much of a bowler so I'm not sure, but I don't think that would interfere that bad.

    ATM!! What's up? (We are on INGO)

    I know on Indianagunowners.com, we have OC events all of the time. I'm in the NWI region so I am usually the coordinator for the eventsI attend, no one else puts any time into it.

    The largest event we had was at Northwoods in St. John, bringing about 15 OCers. (For the record, the service was great, none of the employees FREAKED OUT!!! and called the boys in blue.) But when half of us continued the event at cabelas, we got the crap hassled out of us. But, it's cabela's, so it was to be expected.

    Keep up the good fight!

    I'm getting a late start on this fine forum but I'm always drawn to threads pertaining to food.

    I'm gonna have to make it up north one of these days and try the local bacon at one of your OC get togethers.

    Hello once again , as i have posted back in Oct,1 2009 about a Open Carry Lunch in the down town areai have now come in contact with some people on "FaceBook" who has done this in the past , Little if any info. on the event was posted on any web sites i visit,So Today i would like to ask all who may have been involvedin getting a walk put together for this year some time ,I truly believe that the citizens of Indianapolis need to know what there rights are and to come out in force to help spreed the word. The 2nd Amendment gives us this right .I also believe that a armed citizen in thearea inwhich you live makes that area a safe one. So if theres anyone out there in the area who would like tohelp get this off the ground please contact me here with start-up info.and as always "Watch Your Front Sites"

    Glockman40 I am excited about your entheusiasm on this subject and I don't mean to "nit-pick". You mentioned that the 2nd ammendment gives us this right. I would like to state that the 2nd ammendment "Protects" this right. The only reason I bring it up at all is the idea that IF in fact congress "gives" us the right to keep and bear arms they will in fact one day attampt to take it away.

    It is enumerated in the constitution as an "inalienable" meaning these rights were evident BEFORE the constitution was ratified and given by GOD to the people. The ammendments were penned to make certain that no-one would eventually try to take away those rights guarenteed in the ammendments.

    If we keep saying that these rights were given to the people on the costitution then someday some beauricrat will attempt to remove them saying that times have changed and these rights no longer apply. but if they are given by a higher power and simply guaranteed by the congress it will be less likely to happen.
