    Hello Weaponize. I don't have kids but your wife may feel better knowing other women will be there, armed.

    That is a comforting thought.Wish my wife would OC. She is interesed in her CCW but I can't get her to actually sign up for a class.

    The real reason I got to check with the wife is she is pregnant and well, very lazy these days. So I just got to convince here to get up off the couch. lol Maybe my daughter and I will come but hate to leave the wife by herself.

    I'm sure you mean "tired from making kid lungs and kidneys from scratch all dayand not much energy for much else", right? At least that's what I've always been told.

    That is exactly what I meant mahkagari.

    Looks like we will try and make it as long as the wife is feeling well. So how many are planning on being there?

    It looks like, so far possibly 6 to 7 for now. (desettle and wife, Suburban78, weaponize and daughter (maybe wife too)). But PikesPeakMtnMan said he and his g/f will try to be there, entartet17 said he was in, ColoradoFlyer flyer said he could unless he was caled out to fly, and bomber stated that he will try to make it once in a while. So all in all it could be from 5 to 13. Not sure how many exactly to let the Village Inn know how many. (See thread http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum13/35731.html )
    LOL

    I guess we will start with the 5-7 we know of and go from there.

    Thanks and I'll see you all there at 10:00am 1/9 (Saturday) at the Village Inn on C470 and Braodway.

    Looking forward to it.

    Thanks to those who made it to the OC gathering at Village Inn today (1/9/08). It was really great to see the faces to the names and get some really good information about OC. I even had a chance to see one of the members (Weaponize) talk to a LEO who thought those OCing had to cover thier guns because people get uneasy about seeing them. I think his response was great, "We have the right to be able to open carry", for which the LEO simply scourered and walked on. I know I had mine covered, but can assure you that it will not be that way on the next meeting. I really enjoyed it.

    I meant to take a picture but was so wrapped up in the conversations that I forgot about it. I will try to remember next time and will post it in the forum.

    And thanks to Suburban78 for his help in organizing this meeting.

    I look forward to our next meeting in about a month and hope all can be there.

    Thanks,
    desettle

    Well out of the 9 there, 2 CC'd (myself and my wife) and 5 OC'd. 2 from Colorado Springs (both OC'd), 1 from Connifer (OC'd), 1 from Aurora (OC'd), 3 from Parker (1 OC'd), and 2 (myself and wife) from Highlands Ranch (both CC'd). It was great!

    Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who showed up. My wife and I had a good time. Would have posed earlier but the website has not been working for a few days.

    Count me in for the next one. I also wanted to give a special thank to the couple from the springs. They drove a long way and that shows commitment. Hope to see everyone at the next one and hopefully a few new faces will come. Hopefully this timewe won't have another a-hole cop there that doesn't now the law. lol Thanks again for setting this up desettle.

    Good work on setting up and executing this meeting!

    So there was a minor interaction with a LEO. Since this is in Highlands Ranch which does not have a city police department, I speculate that the LEO was a Douglas County Sheriff's Deputy.

    I would be interested to know if there was any kind of reaction on the part of the Village Inn management and staff to the openly carried pistols.

    (humorous aside: my browser has a gadget that translates a word or phrase into Spanish when the cursor is placed on it. It translated LEO as "una orbita terrestre baja", or as NASA would say "low earth orbit". )

    As far as I could tell, the Village Inn staff/management didn't mind us at all. They were very friendly and we got excellent service.

    The LEO "encounter" was practically a non-event....he was off-duty (I'm assuming, no uniform, out with his family) and asked if we were law enforcement. We told him no we were not and he flashed his badge and told us to cover up because people will freak out. Weaponize talked with him very briefly (I don't know what was said) and he went off to enjoy his breakfast and a few minutes later we went off to enjoy ours.

    No one freaked out and Village Inn management didn't seem to care. Almost all of us were OCing but nothing was said by anybody about our guns....exactly the same if we had all been CCing. In fact, in the little "waiting area" by the hostess stand several families with kids came and went while we were waiting for our table and everything was normal.

    "he flashed his badge and told us to cover up because people will freak out."

    What a tool.

    Tyranny? Or did he "ask" you all to cover up?

    For that same reason you can't ask a burn victim to "Cover up your face, people will freak out. "

    He wasn't just asking, he was telling us (weaponize in particular) to cover up. Of course we didn't comply and he went about his business. It was like he expected us to do whatever he said simply because he was cop.

    As stated, the LEO (not in uniform) TOLD the OC'ers "you have to cover your guns..".

    I thought it would have been great if someone who was OC'ing but did not have a CCW permit was to ask the officer if he was telling them that they have to break the law because covering a OC handgun is considered concealed and would force that person to commit a crime of concealing thier gun with out a permit.

    Oh well, deffinitly looking forward to the next OC gathering.
