    Hi all!

    I'm new to the boards but I've jumped in on some of the discussions. There's been a few threads on doing get-togethers and open carry to help bolster our rights.

    It was suggested we do a 'roll call' to see who's currently active on the Oregon boards and local to arrange some sort of meet-up's.

    Keep in mind, it doesn't have to be some large, organized event like a picnic or something - though that would be great - we can exercise our rights ANY TIME and support each other with little "mini meetups" and catch lunch together sometime or get a coffee and go ammo shopping.

    So sound off! Who wants coffee?

    -Dave

    I'm up for about anything. I work in Hillsboro and frequent areas around Portland.

    If any of you are headed to the Northeast corner of the state, let me know.
    I don't think I am going to make the drive over for coffee.

    You get a pass, neddis - That is a bit of a drive just for coffee.

    Haven't really posted on here, but have been watching the forum every few days. Live in the Portland area. But usually concealed carry. During the hot days I have been wearing an OWB holster, but my t-shirts always covers it up.

    To the Hermiston crowd:

    Im from The Dalles, but I pass by that way on my way to La Grande and Baker pretty often.

    Also, one of my co-workers is a Hermiston native and he's up there frequently

    You can open up a can of worms, just don't throw them everywhere and you should be OK!

    Welcome to the BB. Not very active lately and I don't know why. Could be that we here in Oregon we just don't have as many issues with open carry as they do in other states, which is a good thing really. I've openly carried in several spots around the Tigard area and have never been called to the carpet for it except inside Costco once, and I was asked to leave. Hell I've barely even gotten a funny look or sideways glance from people. Most of the time I don't even think they know I'm carrying even when I do it openly.

    I've yet to open carry here in the big city. I used to open carry quite frequently in eastern washington and north idaho but with all the anti-gunners around here I haven't worked up the courage in the year i've lived here to do it. Maybe a coffee run with fellow gun lovers would be just what I need.

    I am in Portland and lurk around the board, havn't posted much.

    I have carried openly around town a few times and have not had any problems yet.

    I use to deliver newspapers and open carried all the time when I did that, one day had a police car pass by me 3-4 times and then follow me for 10 or so blocks before deciding I was not a threat. Did not stop me or make contact, just kept a watch and left.

    I would up for a local meet sometime.

    I come and go from time to time... Tried Open Carry a while ago and didn't really stick with it (I mostly concealed carry now unless I'm going out shooting), but I support anyone's choice to OC 100%.

    Concealed Carry or Open Carry, Just CARRY!

    I'm in the Beaverton area. Most of the time I CC just because of the weather. I'd be up for a meet and greet somewhere around Portland metro.

    Jackson County (Medford).

    I OC 100% except at school (Community College) where I OC my empty holster and am VERY vocal about the schools unlawful policy attempting to regulate lawful carry by licensed individuals. I'm trying to file a grievance but English Comp has been really whipping me this quarter and last. I also UOC in the PRK (Kalifornia) when I'm down there ... you think it's bad in Portland? Try Kali.

    My wife is also on board, though she CC's. She'll be me audio/visual recording buddy as it warms up and I get more active (i.e. activist). We would love to do some OC get togethers even if we have to travel up to Salem or Portland to participate (so long as schedules allow).

    If there is enough support in the Southern Oregon area, we'd be up for hosting an Shin Dig at our place. Airstrip in the back yard, a 50 yard range (bare basics and a somewhat short back stop), plenty of room for tents or RV's.

    Hey who knows? If enough of us chose to meet up at a Starbucks then maybe we could make the news too!

    NOT!

    I check the forum almost every day, I just don't post that often if I don't have something very relevant to say. I hate reading those 25 page posts that you have to skim read through the crap to get to the relevant details.

    I usually just CC in the pocket out of lazy convenience, but I do OC occasionally, especially for a quick trip to the quicky mart or when out shooting.

    I check here from time to time, live in Springfield.

    I don't yet carry, but like to keep myself informed, and just ordered a nice serpa holster for when I can. Mostly the only reason I don't OC is because I would like to have my CHL first, just to be on the safe side.
