    Eh, what time? I have school most of the day on Wednesday.
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    I really don't understand it either. I guess the mods have their reasons. Since your Tea Party is at a post office, you could always take a road trip down to Richmond!:celebrate

    Well then, perhaps this will help make it relevant. First, once again, the official web site:

    TAX DAY TEA PARTY, RICHMOND, VA

    One of the advisers is Joe Cacciotti, who is part of the RPV Network.

    Part of this network includes the Virginia Republican Defenders of the Second Amendment. Current members stands at 108.

    Perhaps many of them will be attending. Then there could be a real party.

    I was going to take the day off and join the Tparty in Lafayette Park across from the WH. But being as I want to OC, I guess I'll have to hoof to Richmond. Hope to see you there. I'll have a sign that says 'I'm John Galt' on one side and 'The Tree of Liberty needs Watering' on the other.

    Work out some details. I should be able to meet up. I'll certainly be at the event.

    The Scuba knife thread was moved too. Maybe Mike is planning to rename this the "open carry of firearms mainly if you have a CHP but no knives. com"

    Will look for you at this OC event.

    Aren't knives as much related equipment as flashlights are for OCers?

    http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/view_to...ght=watchmaker

    I will be OCing my usual 1911 in a Serpa with extra mags, knife, flashlight, digital recorder & cell phone w/camera - maybe even a separate digital camera.

    The wife and I will be there. Do we need reservations?

    One thing I'd love to see at the demonstration. We should designate a FRS frequency to use for Oc'ers. That way if there is a problem, everyone can know what's going on and where. Many of us have cameras, camcorders and voice recorders.
    It would be good to have as many recording the encounter, as possible.

    The frequency could also be used to find where members are for those that did not start with the group, etc.

    Unfortunately, few will have radios with us. Those that have them should be encouraged to bring them and team up with others. There will also be those of us that have programed super secret cell phone #'s.

    I don't know how much we will need them, but it's not a bad idea for a contigency plan if someone is lost or being harrassed.

    It will be a talkabout channel (like a motorola, midland, etc.). Work crews in and around the city use channels 1-7 and have probably bought a license to do so. We will have to use an FRS channel. We do not want to be caught outside the Federal Reserve hijacking a channel that requires a license, or using too much power that makes using the channel illegal without a license.

    It's not like in the woods hunting. The FCC rules will apply to us in the city.

    I have an idea of what channel to use if you all areinterested.

    Bargain Outfitters has some good prices on FRS radios and can deliver before the 18th.
    Use Code BF425 and take another $5.00 off.

    Thanks Grapeshot! That should be a good savings.

    FRS channels are 1-14 and GMRS starts with 15. GMRS requires a license although no one gets one. FRS does not require one.

    Each channel has subcarriers so we should chose between channels 1 to 14 and then a privacy sub carrier....something like 14-8.

    Correction: The link to the radios I mentioned are for GMRS units not FRS.
