    Trigger Dr & I passed out right near 500 pamphlets today. Lots of folks stopping by to ask questions and get reliable answers. We need more folks to volunteer as we can't be at every show. If we get a table we can get vendor's passes(non-WAC-members) so you don't have to pay to get in and get in early.

    I talked with a guy who has a vinyl business (car stickers / graphics) who informed me that if we want to have banners made and other OC promotion stuff that he would either make it at cost or be willing to make a massive price allowance for us. I had an idea for a banner for BBQ's & Picnics that I discussed with him.

    Johnny Law & SpyderTattoo stopped by today good to see both of you.

    I'd be willing to sit behind the table and hand out pamphlets if I don't have to pay the WAC membership fees. I wouldn't mind contributing to the cost of the signage either.

    That would be great, But if we need to get you a Vendor pass, we need to know about it at least a day before the show. Just let me or M1Gunner by PM and we can take care of it.

    Also, the table can get pretty crowded if we have more than 3 at a time. But we can take turns roaming and looking.

    Centralia, Elma ( a few others)are all non membership events. Still cost you $5 to get in.

    You don't have to be a member of WAC to get in. You need to be a member to buy guns. Anything else there can be bought by non-members.

    If you folks ever get in a show up north state I'd be interested. I been thinking it would be nice to have something like VCDL has for our car, I almost bought the orange guns save lives sticker.

    I asked the guy at VCDL if they were going to make any without the VCDL on it and was flat out told no. So I bought a oval black and white sticker that say "1911"

    If anyone wants to go in with me for the Jan show on a table let me know. I believe its $40 for the 2 days (will verify). Any extra stuff you have for sale bring in to get rid of.

    Had a good experience with a LEO from Puyallup today. He stopped at our table and ASKED QUESTIONS about OC.!!!Gave him pamphlets, case law, and asked him if their PD had issued a training bulletin. He said no they did not have one. Well it looks like he will be going to the training officer, at my request, to see about getting a bulletin issued. The main point I made was to keep them out of litigaion over a bad stop. He was very receptive.:celebrate

    I had a good time today "helping" at the table. Got to meet a couple newer guys to the boards who stopped by. Lots of friendly people stopping by to chat about OC, and lots more pamphlets handed out. Thanks to TriggerDr for putting up with me today ( even if he does carry a girl's gun... . Try not to trip over any flowers TriggerDr... )

    Looking forward to helping out again in the future.

    Hey SVG, what specifically is it about orange guns that results in more saved lives than other colors? Could you provide some sort of study or citation for this claim?

    You must be a member to bring a firearm into the show and it must be tied and unloaded. All magazines must be empty and out of the gun. Kinda sucks I know but with the variety of "clientele" that I see at every show I think it wise to do so for my safety. You would be surprised at the way people handle guns as they look at the tables and displayed items.

    I may not make the Jan show. It looks like I may be out of state on business. I have all the OC stuff at my house if someone wants to collect it. My contact info is in my profile.
