    As many of you know, Champps in Reston is VERY gun friendly and has great food. They've seen a slight decline in business due to the general state of the economy, but nothing critical. Four of us had an early dinner there today (July 4th). Carrie, the General Manager came over, welcomed us (we were open carrying), said he and all of his staff carry and have CHP's and love to see folks come in armed.

    If you"re looking for a place to have lunch or dinner, this is a place that welcomes you and your gun! Let's support them all we can.

    And, yes, I misspelled. It's Champps. Thanks for the correction.

    Not liable to get robbed and locker in the freezer are they !!

    Love it when a business takes responsibility. Sure could take a bite out of crime if all businesses were to be this enlightened.

    Is this isolated to the Champps in Reston or is it perhaps encouraged by corporate?

    We go out for dinner at least once a week, guess this week it will be Champs in Reston.

    ETA:
    Probably Sat or Sunday around 5pm
    .
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    Unlike the Bob's Big Boy in So Cal (La Cienga Blvd early 80's ) all employees/guest locked in freezer until safe was cleaned out, then the robbers decided to become murderers.
