    I am celebrating my almost-completed recovery from the viscious assault I received last week at Chippenham Hospital.

    OC is Legal cards will be available for those that are interested in haveing some to hand out to folks who ask about OCing. You do not need to have breakfast with us to get some cards - just show up & get a handful.

    I-95 to the Parham Rd West exit, and look for River City Diner. We start at around 9:30 and finish when just one more cup of coffee would be too much.

    There is a gun show at RIR if you need an excuse to get out of the house.

    stay safe,

    I'm still commuting every other day. I plan on being back on Friday night and should be there for breakfast.

    I may bring the WHIZZER. I'll leave that to your imagination

    GS, Bring a few extra VCDL applications if you have them. I meant to run a few off at work today but forgot. There won't be a table at the gun show so I figured I would bring a few with me just in case.

    That's what I thought. When I received the VCDL alert at the beginning of the week, I noticed it didn't include this weekend's gun show. I replied to the alert and was told it probably wasn't mentioned because there wouldn't be a table there.

    I may get there earliest at 8:30. Any earlier my daughter will be an attitude all day from making her wake up too early.

    We had a good turnout. I'll post pictures of The Whizzer as soon as I can find the camera>computer cord and download them.

    Several folks were off to the gun show after breakfast, carrying handsful of OC cards. I've got them to give away, but you have to come out to breakfast or dinnerto get them.

    stay safe.

    I did leave a fiew with some dealers and gave out a fiew. That left me a couple to give out at work. I settled on a Taurus PT1911. I hope it fires as good as it feels will be trying it out here shortly. Sence my wife gave her blessing it only is suting to wait till she gets home so she can enjoy as well.

    Had a filling meal at the breakfast, almost too filling! Went to the gun show sometime afterwards, around 1:00. Saw kennys there with his new 1911.

    I ended up leaving with a 1911 as well. Just your basic ol' Springfield GI model in stainless steel.

    Enjoyed the breakfast and conversation - did a walk through at the gun show, nothing I really wanted or needed (read resisted). Did look long and hard at hologram sight for AR - talked to a number of friends including Mike, the mgr. from Uno Chicago Grill.

    Also got stopped and quized by show sponser as to why VCDL did not have a table this time - actually is the first show in my memory that did not have one - wanted to restock on GSL buttons myself.

    Had an interesting exchange with a customer at McDonalds on Mechanicsvile Pike - gave him OCDO card and VCDL info.

    It was a good Breakfast. Kenny got there right after I Whizzed in:P and we had a good turnout.

    Went to the show and got some loading manuals that I had to replace because mine had grown legs...and Grapeshot helped me pick out a pair of Purdy new Rosewood grips for my 1911.

    Only one table had bullet molds and he thought they were made out of gold and I had to look away every time I passed the Contender/Encore table.:X
