    Was looking around for information on current events for open carry trash pickups. If anyone has some info on plans for one in the Las Vegas, North Las Vegas area please post. If not what do you guys think about starting some?

    So. No one wants to do open carry cleanups in las vegas. Go out there and do some community service?

    Not to sound selfish, but I work a lot and don't get too much time to myself. I like to spend my days off doing things I enjoy. I'll leaving cleaning up to the inmates on good behavior.

    I've participated in a couple of them out there. These are actually not as bad as it sounds - picking up trash builds character.

    In NH, they have a large number of people who participate and actually meet WEEKLY to do pickups in various locations. Like the first Saturday every month is in one city, the second Saturday in another city, etc. But it's basically across the whole state, so they have lots of different people who show up each week, it's rare to see the same guys at every location.

    I think it's a great idea to do this regularly....

    How about the first Saturday of every month we meet at 10am and spend an hour picking up trash or cleaning graffiti, or whatever.

    For the first meet, let's meet outside the LVMPD Convention Center Area Command headquarters at 750 Sierra Vista....say Saturday Feb 6 at 10am? Bring garbage bags & rubber gloves.

    Let's meet on the sidewalk in front of LVMPD precinct, Swenson & Sierra Vista, 10am Saturday February 6.

    And as always, please feel free to cross-post to other forums, the more the merrier.

    I'll join in if you can use an old fat guy, who can hold a sack open but not bend over.

    Rick-

    Heck yea, the more the merrier. Do you happen to have a truck? It'd be nice to have someone who could collect the bags of trash as we fill them.

    Sorry, no truck.

    I'll be glad to drive my car around to fill up the trunk and back seat (and to dispose of them afterward, if somebody can let me know where to dump them). I will bring a supply of heavy-duty bags for everybody to make it easier for all.

    I have a truck. I just need to pick up one one of those grabber things so I don't have to bend over.:P

    How much trash do you end up with? That way I know to bring my big truck or not. Have a S-10 with a 6' bed and I have an old chevy 3/4 ton with a 8' bed.

    S10 should be fine. Usually it's about 1.5 bags per person per hour. If we stay an hour and have 20 people, that's 30 bags, and should fit into a 6 ft bed without much trouble.

    Nice.. It would be great to have 20+ people. I'm having some NC people come to help. And thanks again Tim for throwing the ideas out there for location and what not. BTW I know some producers at local Fox 5 if we need some camera time.

    I too have seen the NH free staters' trash cleanup efforts. I think its a really great thing to do in general, but also a good way to educate people on open carry. Count me in.

    I now have saturdays off work. So i'll try and make it if no other plans come up between now and then. I also will be bringing a truck.

    I personally like the idea of the fox 5 thing. Anyone else wanna comment to see if we can get some airtime for some pro OC publicity?

    Hello, my first time posting here as i Just recently found the site I would love to attend this but haven't seen much chatter on this thread is this still a go for Feb 6th? at 10AM?

    forgot to ask one important question as I'm still just now learning the gun laws here in Las Vegas thanks to everyone on here for that. but I'm still fairly new to the city only 4 years now being here and don't get out much. is this considered to be North Las Vegas? I read on some thread here that you cannot carry loaded in a car in North Vegas.

    I was wondering myself. I'm sure tim will post more on parking when he gets a chance. Im also sure that the parking should be good to go since that isn't a tourist area.

    Probably wouldn't be polite to use Metro's visitor parking.

    We can always ask, I suppose. I know, let's send Tim....Tim will do anything. And they like Tim, right ?
