    <EDIT> Gun Show table has been reserved. It sounds like we will be in the upstairs section for Feb.




    Has anyone reserved one for the weekend?

    Negative. And I have some news about that. I won't be able to help with the table in any official capacity any more. I've been hired on with the WAC security team and I start this coming weekend at the Puyallup show. But I can't wait to see the sign. I'll be around to say "hi". I think a good idea for this show is to put a jar or box out that anyone could donate cash to the Washington OCDO fund. Money to be used for renting tables at the show and buying more pamphlets.

    I had that idea as well. OK, I will call Arline on Tues and see if any tables are still available. I'm worried that the ceilings are not as tall for the Feb shows since they are NOT in the big pavilion.

    yes... put out a jar. I've been by the table a few times and I'd

    gladly drop in a donation.

    LOL, that's what I told my wife. Now she can't tell me that I can't go to the gunshow. "Sorry honey, got to get to work..."

    I'll be able to stop by the table on my lunch-break. But you'll probably see me around the building throughout the day.

    I'll be up there. Still unsure which day at the moment. The upstairs section is open for both days? Will keep an eye out for the OCDO table.

    Lesse, First Geoff would kill me for getting rid of the M91, then his girlfriend, and lastly you only get one Finn out of me!

    You can buy my CZ 82 though. Is your Mosin Sniper real, or repro? I'll swap you my CZ 82 and work out a cash deal for the balance if it's a repro.

    Saw the table at the show today. When I walked by it a couple of times I saw whoever was behind it (sorry, I didn't come by and intro myself) actively engaged in conversation. Hopefully some of the attendees learned something.

    One suggestion... I don't think the in-your-face "open carry is legal" I saw as the main title on banners at the booth is the right message; IMO it made us look a little like a fringe group begging for recognition. I think it should be more like "Know and practice your WA gun rights". The name "opencarry.org" just below that message would get the point across.

    I know the board/org is called OCDO for a specific reason, but that's my $0.02.

    M1Gunr and myself were primarily at the table today. Thanks for the info on the banner but that ship has sailed. Next time say hello.

    Gogodawgs, Kendra, Compmanio365 helped out at the table today, Thanks much. A few other members stopped by, go to see all of you. If anyone has free time on Sunday send me a PM or give me a call. If you are not a WAC member I can get a Vendor pass and it won't cost you anything to get in (non-members can't carry a weapon). My contact info is in my profile as well .........

    Lots of folks engaged us today, we passed out almost everything we had. If anyone has extra Gun Rights Pamphlets I'd appreciated it if you could drop them off. Our next order won't be done till after the 1st and we have maybe 50 on hand.

    I was told I could move the table tomorrow to a different location. We will still be on the upper floor but will be a few rows over (better sign coverage). Too bad the escalator was down today, I think it kept alot of folks from coming upstairs that normally world have however all in all it was a good day.

    Lots of questions, lots of new stuff to pass out as well. I talked to security and am working on getting a photo of the table.

    -Enjoy the weekend.
