    Just wondering if anyone from here is going.

    I'm proud to say that we just signed on with C&E / Showmasters and we will be providing the CHP training classes at the show. If anyone's in the neighborhood, stop by and say hello.

    I'd like to come to it, but dunno if I'll be able to. It'd only be just to look around if so.

    Congrats on being chosen for the classes!

    I normally say I'll skip the show but I always end up coming just to look around.

    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.

    I'll actually be in class the majority of time and won't have too much time to visit the show. I hope to be able to say hello to a few of you though.

    I'll be there: need a new holster, and need to look at some reloading stuff. Also, touching guns makes me happy...

    You're going to have to be more specific than that. One could swing a dead cat and hit 3 guys matching that description at a gun show.

    OK. The big fat guy with bad knees at the VCDL booth. Silver wire-rim glasses, gray-streaked blond hair and mustache.

    You've just described my spouse.

    Oh, wait. Beard and mustache.

    Oddly enough, I just lost the beard (about 2.5" worth) late last month - I'd been growing it out since mid December.
