    I'm relatively new to the idea of UOC and I fully support it. I am wondering how many other advocates are in my area. I would like to plan an outing.

    Who is interested?

    PM me if you want to start planning an outing.

    Marshaul and myself are in San Francisco. BadAce is in cupertino. Jeffw is in fremont. I don't think anybody here has UOCed in any of the three cities listed though.

    So we have a few in the area.

    From what I am told, Los Gatos is full of liberals who would freak at the sight of a gun and to expect multiple calls into the local LE.

    I've UOC'd in Santa Clara (the city). But no contact with local LEO.

    I don't think San Jose or Los Gatos would be a big deal.

    The next time I have business in those towns I'll be sure to UOC

    1) Please remember that LEOs, some maybe on their own private time as a hobby or to persecute UOCers, are reading this forum to compile evidence - tricky dicks...., er I mean, dick tracies - :what:

    2) There are many I believe who would attend a UOC gathering event but who don't UOC on their own -

    3) I UOC for UOC gatherings; I LUCC sometimes for preparatory self-defense and when I'm not in PRK, I CCW where my permits are respected or OC if the activities of the day require it (in cowboy country for example) -

    that's just me :celebrate

    Successful outing with dirtykoala, no one seemed to care we were OCing. And at one point a Sunnyvale PD cruiser came up and parked in the spot right next to where we sat outside the coffee shop (6 feet away). ( I was thinking "oh here we go") With my strong side facing the officer he got out to get something to eat. He didn't care or didn't notice. Fine by me. Since dirtykoala and I weren't out to prove anything we made no attempt to goat the officer into talking to us. The same cruiser passed by two other times. I think this shopping center must be at one end of his patrol route.

    If y'all used something resembling names then we might discover acquaintances beyond the keyboard.

    There is a time to stand tall and proud, and a time to keep your head low. We're in the trenches right now, possibly more so than anywhere else in the nation.

    Many of those in power view us as enemies of the state. We face harassment, unwarranted seizure of our persons, unwarranted searches, false arrest, and malicious prosecution. The justice system here simply doesn't deliver justice.

    Disclosing our names could literally endanger the safety and liberty of our selves and our families.

    Sure, I love the local (across from PD station). Lots of opportunities to desensitizes the public and the PD

    I signed up today just to get involved in this thread. I live on the Peninsula, but close enough (I hope) to the South Bay to consider it a similar area. I am very interested in getting involved in well organized, safe, legal activity designed to demonstrate and increase the legality of open carry. An organized OC demonstration might fit that bill. If anyone is interested in putting something together, I hope you will reply to this thread.


    As for disclosing my real identity: I have an internet alias that I like to use, and I'm as concerned as the next guy about people who might hold it against me that I respect freedom. On the other hand, if letting people know my real name is in anyway helpful towards increasing freedom, then I'm going to use my real name. I can see that using real names would be helpful in bringing this movement out of the shadows. Therefore: I am Peter T. Banos, MD, MBA. I support civil rights, as guaranteed by the US Bill of Rights, and I don't care who knows it.

    I hope to meet some of you IRL.

    Peter

    I too am new to this forum. I agree with Peter up above, save the ID thing until I get to know people better.

    Santa Clara area, I never reveal my true identity on-line. If people meet me, then they will know me, though I'd wager some of you here already do!

    I'd be interested in meeting with folks. I would not want to come armed the first time out, but I would like to discuss it with people to "learn the ropes" before actually attempting it.

    Schedule can be a bit wacky, but I'd try to work something out, and always enjoy a good cup of coffee!
