    I have begun working on a Open Carry calendar using google calendar. This calendar is for all of Nevada and anyone with location, data and time, event ideas or requests can email NV.OPENCARRY.ORG@GMAIL.COM

    The HTML Calender's address is:

    http://www.google.com/calendar/embed...ca/Los_Angeles

    If there are any issues with using the name of NV.OPENCARRY.ORG please PM me so i can discontinue it.

    I also plan on making a printed calendars for us and also it was mentioned by one of the OC'ers from the henderson walk about that they have gatherings where we can get a booth and hand out information on everyday OC, tee shirts and what not. A few of us found this to be a great idea. If people want to pitch in some cash to make something like this happen, let me know.

    Sure, I'll help out. When you get to the point of needing cash, give me a message.

    Awesome Vegas Rick.

    Like I said, right now I'm trying to gather ideas to put on the calendar. I'm thinking about doing a once a month range day at the new shooting park!

    This is a great idea IMO, also if there are people interested in say a weekly or bi weekly meet to discuss and just enjoy company at say a starbucks or some other OC friendly establishment would be great. We could even have two different times during the week for such meets to help meet peoples work schedule since there are plenty of people working weekend shifts.

    Love the idea of range meets on a regular basis. Takes a bit of pressure off trying to make it to each individually-scheduled event, and regularizes the honing of our shooting skills (gets us off our lazy butts).

    Yah I was already thinking about the Starbucks thing... I like the idea also. Again I was also thinking bi-weekly. If you have day requests then email me and ill include them in there

    Perfect! I love the idea of getting together for more than just an occasional walk. This really should be a regular thing.

    I'll definitely be willing to pitch in as far as cash goes when the time comes.

    I see several ways to improve our presence around town with this idea. We could brainstorm at the next meet-up about various locations around town. Maybe set up a rotation for north/south/east/west sides. Places like Starbucks, etc.

    Once you put things together on a calendar, people would just show up without need to do all the blog work. I bet if you set a meeting place each weekend, you'd get at least several showing up each time.

    Big meet-ups are nice, but it really just needs a few to achieve the OC presence effect. You get the same number of pedestrians going by a group of three as for a group of thirteen.

    Good point. Im more curious who will utilize this calendar. I know at the least I will! If people want to post their common days off then I'll tune it for whatever.

    Speaking about that the other day I OC'd all day. Went to Harley in Henderson, a bank with my wife and TGI Fridays also in henderson off sunset. That got me thinking. We should also meet once a month at a random location to eat dinner and what not so we can create a list of "Go to/Do NOT go to places". I for one do not want to patronize anyplace that doesn't respect my rights!

    The truth is not everyone OC's everyday, but on these rare occasions that we meet up for a walk about. So maybe if people knew we go everywhere without too many issues then they might be inspired like I was by DON'T TREAD ON ME. He told me a story that has stuck with me and whenever I feel a bit unnerved, then I think of that.

    Just an idea, but perhaps something like a Google Calendar is in order for this? Something that can reside online, be shared, selectively edited by individuals, or whoever is designated, and can be printed at home for no cost. Also can be easily updated in the occasion that an event is canceled/moved.

    Just adding my 2 cents.

    Edit: Well apparently Google now charges for their Calendar when used for more than personal use, so I guess the operative word would be LIKE a Google Calendar since it is apparently out of the question. I'm sure there is some similar copy-cat service that would provide the functionality.

    The google calender will be a great tool, anyone with a iGoogle page or a gmail account can add it and edit it I for one look at my iGoogle page every day, and i just added it so now i can see the events along with my own personal calender great tool!


    To add my days off so we can start polling these

    Friday and Saturday


    My work Schedule is Sunday through Thursday 7PM to 3AM so sometimes if theres a day event during those times and it wont last till 6pm ill be able to make it depending on if i can wake up in time


    We could even get it embedded onto the forum front page for Nevada, thats always a possibility as well. The code for that is below.

    <iframe src="http://www.google.com/calendar/embed?src=nv.opencarry.org%40gmail.com&ctz=Ame rica/Los_Angeles" style="border: 0" width="800" height="600" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>

    Love the ideas about embedding, however I would want to see more progress before I bring it to MODS attention

    If anyone thinks cross posting into the other OC friendly websites the email address and the calendar I would be ok with that! Let me know what you think.

    Good idea about cross-posting. More the merrier.

    PS: check this new post out if you ever wondered about whether or not to carry a recorder device. Looks like Los Angeles PD has some training needs. Sad on many levels .... http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum12/38952-1.html

    Yes, indeed. I love the map link to see just where a meeting is located.

    I called up KXNT a few weeks ago and requested that they talk about open carry! I'm glad that they are doing so.
