    As I talk to gun owners that have owned for years and also new gun owners, I am floored when they have never heard of VCDL. Many say they are NRA members or are thinking about joining. I encourage them to do so but I also get them to sign up for VCDL. I have even paid for over 10 memberships just to make it easy for folks.

    So.. I am taking it as a personal challenge to add a hundred members to the VCDL PAID membership and hope that each of you join me in the challenge. If you run into the folks that are interested and they (or you) can't afford to pay the $25.00 for a year, at the VERY LEAST get them signed up for the FREE VA-ALERT so that they can lean, stay informed and call their representatives when asked to do so.

    In the spirit of my Open Carry Business Cards, I have created the easy to carry "JOIN THE VCDL" card. It is my plan to drop them off anytime I am at a range, or gun show, or Open Carry Dinner, etc.

    Like my Open Carry Cards, if you want any of these, send a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope to me with two stamps on the return to:

    Ed's VCDL Drive, PO BOX 16143, Washington, DC 20041-6143
    Carry On.

    Good idea, Ed.

    A while ago I offered to pay for VCDL memberships for up to 4 college students until they graduated, but that got no traction.

    Hope this one takes off.

    If every member brought in just one (1) new member each per year, we would double (2X) the membership roster.


    Numbers are power and influence!!

    I like these cards as they don't havethe lettersED all over them.
    If you're at the meeting I'll take a few and provide a donation to cover your cost.


    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.

    You're so right Grapeshot. I signed up 3 people lately (not counting the gun show stuff). We who are members should all sign up/sponsor at least one person.

    At least none of the E's are capitalized.

    I'll be sending you an envelope Ed. Thanks. I also started using your card image as my signature on some of the forums I frequent to help pass the word around.
